Jack in the Box 25c (Casino.net) is a progressive slots jackpot that can be played exclusively at Casino.Net. We have been tracking this jackpot since January 2010.
This zany, 3-slot, 3 pay line, fixed $.25, traditional slot game employs a children's birthday party-theme to draw in gamers. It uses icons which bring back happy childhood memories such as the clown, the box with and the eyes peering out of it as well as other symbols like the lucky 7, bar sign, lemon and watermelon.
Begin by making a bet of $.25, $.50 or $.75. If you want to win the progressive jackpot, you have to bet $.75 - or just hit the green 'max bet' button to make it simpler - and hope to have three clown icons line up on an active pay line. Other smaller jackpots are activated when you have three clowns appear with 2 pay lines in play (2,000 credits) or 1 pay line in play (1,000 credits). Anything other winning icon combination will net you far less than the clowns; three boxes with eyes, the next most valuable symbol combination, is only good for a mere 100 credits. There are no wild symbols, scatter symbols or bonus games available in Jack in the Box.
This slot offers more or less what one would expect out of a classic, 3-slot game. The graphics are fairly average, although you are treated to some interesting, varied effects and music each time you make a winning combination. Truth be told, Jack in the Box could certainly use a graphics update to make it a little bit more appealing to the eyes. A little bit more variety in the icons and background music would have given this game a little extra spice.
