We’ll be the first to admit that jazz is not particularly a type of music that we enjoy on a day to day basis. However, when it’s live jazz, it’s a different story. Fortunately, this slot game offering from Genesis Gaming manages to capture that side of things. In it, you’ll be able to head to a downtown bar in New Orleans in order to hear your favourite musicians. There’ll be all the usual features of a jazz band there. The trumpet player. The double bass plucker. The slow drummer. And, of course, the crooning vocalist. As such, every time you spin the reels of this game, you’ll hear the pleasant sounds of the band playing. Although, if you’re more of a fan of the game and not of the music, there is a mute button to use. The great thing about this game is that it features rich and impressive graphics. Genesis Gaming are becoming known for offering such in their products. So, prepare to enter the music venue, sit back and relax.

Sing Along If You Know the Words

Like with other slot games, it’s all about the visual appeal of the game in this one, and Genesis makes this a wonderful feature. The design of the interface stands as five reels and three rows. Therefore, you’ll have a familiar enough display to spin the reels of. It is these reels that play host to the game’s various symbols. These begin with the lower paying symbols of a live music sign, a tumbler of whisky and ice, and a bucket of crayfish. There’s also the addition of an outside shot of the venue and a lamppost with a sign on for ‘Blues’ avenue. Joining these are four higher paying symbols and these begin with the trumpet. There’s also a piano with musical symbols, the double bass player and a female vocalist.

Joining these reels, rows and icons, there are also five separate pay lines as well. This is not a part of the game that you can change around, so you will always be wagering on five lines. However, you do have the chance to alter the bet that you place per spin. This is done first of all with the up and down arrows on the bottom left of your screen. This offers up a bet level range of between £0.01 and £4. You can also alter the amount of coins in play per line. This is done by using the plus and minus button on either side of the reels. Each line can have between one and five coins in play. This means that a maximum overall wager of £100 per spin is able to be in play.

Take in a Live Jazz Show

One thing that Genesis Gaming does well in its games, is provide a great choice of special features. The same is definitely the case in this game. The first of the game’s specialities is the scatter icon. This is the image of the music symbols floating into the clouds. Scatters will provide a pay out in any position on the reels. If you spin five into view, you will receive a bet multiplier of times 75! The scatter symbol also triggers the game’s freespins symbol. You need to spin three of them in to view in order to do so. You will first see five different music venues and choosing one of them will provide the amount of freespins. There are a maximum of 25 available to you. Then, you have to select an instrument – the piano, a saxophone, a guitar, a drum set or the microphone. This reveals the number of extra wild icons for the freespins round.

Not only that, but there’s a wild icon in the game as well, which is the live jazz neon sign. As a wild symbol, this one will stand in for all other symbols on the reels, with the exception of the scatter. If you manage to spin five onto a winning pay line, you will receive a maximum pay out of 200 coins.

Finally, the game also includes a gamble round. This comes into play at the end of any winning combination during the base round. Your only job here is to select one of the four cards on display to either double up or triple up.

The Final Word

Live Jazz is certainly an intriguing slot option. It features vibrant colours, has an appealing base theme and impressive graphical quality. Add to this the special features and bonus rounds and you’ve got a truly appealing offering.
