Like your tunes smooth, like your lounge music experience? In that case, it sounds like you are a prime candidate for the Jazz Club, a 5 reel, 25 payline game from the team at Playtech. This slot plays and looks smooth, but, to be perfectly honest, we have come to expect more this particular manufacturer. The presentation could be better and the gameplay features more plentiful.
The Jazz Club information
Like all Playtech games, the Jazz Club offers up a presentation that is quite good. The theme is well-executed with appropriate music, symbols that are reminiscent of a real jazz club (e.g. musicians, glasses of scotch, old-school microphones), and other neat bits. While the graphics are quite appropriate, if you're anything like me you will quickly tire of the repetitive sound effects, particularly the looping jazz riff that plays every time you hit a winning payline. It quickly had me turning down the volume on my computer.
In terms of gameplay, there is actually not that much to speak of here. The two features here are an expanding wild and a free spins feature. It should be noted that the former only appears during the latter. The only wrinkle in the features department is that you can pick between various kinds of free spins bonuses, mixing and matching free spin numbers with multipliers. In each case, one of the jazz performers will replace all the other performers on the reels during the free spins, giving you a better chance of hitting the big wins.
