Jackpot Rango is an online slot from iSoftBet, licensed by Paramount Pictures. It’s based on the 2011 animated film about a pet chameleon that wants to become a sheriff, and has five reels and 25 paylines.
The game is replete with video slot-style special features such as Wilds, Scatters, and free spins with multipliers, and it has a progressive jackpot. Such a jackpot gets bigger in size as more bets are placed on the reels.
Being a licensed slot, its look and feel convey the spirit of the movie, the lead character of which was voiced by award-winning actor Johnny Depp.
Jackpot Rango’s Reel Symbols
The story at the heart of Jackpot Rango is shown in all the online slot’s graphics, but especially in the reel symbols. The themed symbols include various characters from the movie, as well as regular playing card symbols.
Rango the chameleon appears on the reels, as do Mayor John, Priscilla, Beans, Rattlesnake Jake, an owl from the mariachi band, a sheriff badge, and a progressive jackpot symbol. The regular low value symbols on the reels are nine, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace symbols.
The slot needs to be played at maximum bet for the opportunity to win the progressive jackpot. The progressive jackpot symbol is the symbol linked to the jackpot, which will only be paid out if five of those symbols land on an active payline.
Rattlesnake Jake Wild Symbol
The Wild symbol on the Jackpot Rango reels can substitute itself for other symbols when it lands on the reels. It is thus able to help other reel symbols form winning combinations on the reels.
However, it cannot substitute itself for sheriff badge Scatters or for progressive jackpot symbols. The Wild is the Rattlesnake Jake symbol, and it comes with multipliers during the free spins round.
Sheriff Badge Scatter Symbol
The sheriff badge Scatter symbol is the symbol that triggers the online slot’s free spins round, and unlike the other symbols, it does not need to appear in consecutive order to do this.
Instead, the appearance of three or more Scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger the free spins round in which players receive 10 free spins. If a Wild symbol helps form a winning combination during the free spins round, the payout will be doubled.
If two Wilds help form a paying combination, the payout will be quadrupled, and if three Wilds help form a winning combination, that payout will be multiplied eight times.
Rango Free Spins Bonus Round
Jackpot Rango also has an interesting bonus feature connected to the Rango reel symbol. If two Rango symbols land on the first reel of the phone casino South Africa game, the Rango Free Spins Bonus will be triggered.
If this happens, all the Rango and Rattlesnake Jake Wild symbols that land on the reels will be stuck in place for the duration of the free spins round. The symbols that remain in place increase the potential of winning combinations being formed on the reels.
