Jack on Hold Game Characteristics
Jack on Hold’s partitioned 3X3 grid is set on a cherrywood-framed chocolate plank that is divided up by twisted ropes. The desert in the background aside, the grid is decorated with roped bull skulls at the top corners. The roped red-and-green circles along the grid’s show the game’s five fixed paylines. There are eight symbols, nine total bets, wall bonus, a win multiplier, one re-spin only, locked symbols, a gamble game, and regularly pays from $0.10 to $5000.00.
Jack on Hold has one special and seven ordinary symbols. The brand logo-and-substitute is a revolver-wielding “wild” outlaw in a red bandana mask and a yellow cowboy hat. Ordinary symbols: a charging “red bull”; a white-and-red single BAR; red-and-yellow “777”; a golden “SHERIFF” badge; a golden bell; a halved watermelon; and leafy cherries.
Jack on Hold’s cash bets: $0.10 (minimum bet), $0.20, $0.50, $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00 (maximum bet).
The $100.00 bet attracts these Jack on Hold dynamic payouts for three five winning combinations. The “red bull” pays $5000.00. The BAR pays $2000.00. The “777” pays $1400.00. The “SHERIFF” badge pays $8000.00. The golden bell pays $4000.00. The watermelon pays $200.00. The cherries pay $100.00.
Three-of-a-kind of “wild” outlaws, which do not count as winning combination, are equivalent to—and trigger—the red bull’s payout. Moreover, all symbols in a winning combination that features a “wild” outlaw substitute have a “HOLD” stamp and are locked during the next round. Nine-of-a-kind of any ordinary symbol attracts a X2 win multiplier.
In the seven-round side game, the slot players can choose a face down playing card or a flickering face up playing card; players guess the upcoming suit color, thereby doubling or nullifying their payout based on the result. Jack on Hold’s non-progressive jackpot is X500, which (500X100) is $50000.00.
