Feedback of the tester about Jingle spin slot
Soon Netent company will please its players with the new slot from a series about Christmas and this time Eggomatic machine was taken as the basis.
- This is a colourful and funny slot with a nice design and a pleasant musical accompaniment. But in my opinion, after its release, this online slot will immediately disappoint most players. The behaviour of this slot is similar to the behaviour of Eggomatic machine. I would like to remind you that it rarely gives out additional prizes from the wheel and they are often small.
- During my testing, gnomes often sat empty-handed. When they had the additional winnings, their value was only 2x – 5x total bets, less often it was 10x total bets, although we see the prizes up to 125x total bets in this wheel, the winnings rarely reach them.
- As for free spins, they don't appear very often. It can be 7 – 12 spins, although this wheel has the prizes with 50 free spins. I managed to get only 12 free spins with the winning of less than 50x total bets during my testing. Of course, this slot will give out the maximum prizes, but it will be extremely rare here. In my opinion, a disadvantage was the fact that the player sees only this wheel and, accordingly, the prizes that pass by him. Eggomatic slot does not have this disadvantage.
- In my opinion, the Netent company created this slot to take away the players` money. At the same time, the developers did not waste a lot of time to create it, and they just made another Christmas copy. Frankly speaking, I was disappointed.
Alternative tester’s opinion
- While developing this slot, NetEnt specialists did not come up with something new and created another clone of Eggomatic slot into the Christmas version. At the same time, the gameplay and the behaviour remained unchanged, i.e. in this slot, exactly the same algorithms and mathematical solutions were applied.
- The average win in the usual spins varies from 0.25x to just a few bets, does not allow keeping a good balance, due to the quite large number of spins without payment combinations. Rather a rare triggering of more expensive combinations costing from 10x to 30x bets, often, does not cover the loss of balance. At the same time, the slot still compensates for the loss of balance by issuing additional winnings from Christmas balls.
- Despite the fact that sometimes we see quite expensive prizes in the wheel, up to 125x bets, often only prizes of 2.5x, 5x and 10x are given out, but most of the winnings are 5x total bets.
- Balls with free are rare in the usual spins, while the slot shows from 7 to 50 free spins, the issuance of balls with 20 - 50 spins practically don’t occur, and the average number of free spins is 10 - 12. But additional free spins during the bonus game are often, and sometimes the ball with additional spins can be obtained several times.
- The payment combinations during free spins do not differ from the winnings in the usual spins, with the difference only in more frequent receiving additional prizes with coins in the balls. You can get a big win only when wild symbols are in a ball, and only if it is well-positioned. Such combinations on average bring a win of about 100x total bets. The average winning during free spins without wild symbol is 30x – 40x.
- The average win during free spins, with wild symbol and its successful location, is 140x – 160x total bets. It is possible to get more than 200x if the wild symbol in a ball gets place 2-3 times, which happens extremely rarely.
In my opinion, on a long-distance the slot is negative and, accordingly, is not suitable for such game, since it’s almost not able to compensate for the loss of balance in the amount of 300x – 400x bets. Despite the illusion from the first spins that is keeping the balance, the slot changes its behaviour and is able to reduce the balance to 0, so personally, I would not try to fulfil the wager requirements on it. While playing with real money, I personally prefer short game sessions before triggering a big win with a wild symbol, or free spins, and if they are missing, leave the slot after 50 - 80 spins.
Personal tester’s opinion
Netent, as always, knows how to please its fans. The game is far from new but still is interesting to play. The meaning of the slot is that you make the spin, and a mini-wheel with various prizes will be spinning to the right, if the arrow hits the prize, it goes up to the 5th reel, with each next spin it will move to left. The main thing is that is on the reels is wild symbol and there is the prize on the top, you are getting this prize as the winning. Here, as in any slot, in which there is no separate bonus game, all interesting wins occur only with the help of an additional bonus feature. Without them, winnings are rare and small. Of course, there are still free spins, where there will be always balls with prizes on top. I am sure that fans of from Netent will really like this slot.
