Jeopardy is an online slot developed by IGT that is based on the famous TV show of the name same. The game incorporates elements of the TV show into gameplay and fans of the show will recognise the game’s theme song and several stylistic choices.
The show’s famous host Alex Trebek, along with other members of the clue crew all are a part of the game as well. Trebek is there to cheer you along and congratulate you whenever you score a victory, and the other members all make up symbols on the reels.
With Jeopardy trying to capture the thrills and excitement of its television counterpart, it should be no real surprise that the online slot comes with several special features.
Slot bonus features
The most generous bonus in the game is the Jeopardy bonus. This occurs when you secure three or more jeopardy symbols across your reels. In this game, you will be taken to another set of reels, and like the game show itself, you have to choose randomly selected squares off each row of reels. These will then reveal a prize of some sort. These include free spins, multipliers and cash bonuses.
The game also has a useful wild symbol. The wild can expand to other symbols as part of the double jeopardy feature and will reward you with a 2x multiplier on all of your winnings from that spin.
Those who have watched the TV show Jeopardy will know that there are quite a few rules when it comes to playing but thankfully, the online slot is relatively straight forward. The slot has five reels with 40 pay lines. You can wager up to five coins on each pay line, with the maximum value of each coin being £5. The symbols on the reels here are not your typical online slot reels. Sticking with the theme of the show, all of the symbols are either rounds icons from the show or presenters and personalities from the show itself. You can find out the value of these using the paytable at any point during the game.
Jeopardy on Mobile
Jeopardy is available to play on specific mobile devices though; it is worth noting that the gameplay is not quite as innovative and some of the features and animations do not work as well on mobile devices.
