The Agent Jane Blonde series continues, getting a sequel to the very popular first slot machine which Microgaming released a couple of years back. They haven’t designed this game themselves, and instead relied on a partner developer to do it, so it’s actually coming from Stormcraft Studios.
Expect for this slot machine, Agent Jane Blonde Returns, to have 5 reels and only 15 active lines for them. It doesn’t do that well feature wise, at least when it comes to its diversity, since the scatters and wilds are getting only respins for companions. You also get somewhat low rewards from it, as the highest potential jackpot doesn’t seem to go past 300x the stake ($120,000).
Betting and Prizes
The bets in Agent Jane Blonde Returns can be set to as little as $0.05, so it’s about the cheapest 15 line game that you can play. You have a top wager of $400 that you can select, the option which the high rollers are going to take, if they decide to give the game a chance.
Rewards in this particular game are quite disappointing, the upper limit for them being at 300x, by the looks of it. Even with the highest wager in place, that’s only a $120,000 jackpot, low for a game with $400 maximum bets. This is obviously a game with low volatility, so it’s really up to you if you enjoy this type of action, which pays often, but minimal amounts most of the time.
In the case of Agent Jane Blonde Returns, Microgaming chose to have fewer features, but the ones you do get will trigger often enough. For starters, there will be a wild symbol inside, and one of the Jane symbols will be the one used for it, the close-up of her face in this case. You just need a Wild Jane to show up on a line where it can do some good, and it will assist you in forming some new combination if it is able to act as a substitute. It’s not a guarantee, but more often than not it will help on one of the lines it is present on.
Though you get scatters as well, these aren’t used in the usual way, as they give you respins, rather than free spins. They will be transformed into locked wilds first, and then a respin will come. Should more wilds appear during that first respin, they will become sticky as well, and the respin feature will continue. For as long as you keep getting new wilds, this feature will go on, and will keep improving the outcome for you.
The list of features provided in Agent Jane Blonde Returns stops here, so it’s not a very long one, unfortunately.
Theme & Design
Inspired by a fictional secret agent, called Jane Blonde, the slot is the second one to use her as a main character, so this has officially become a series. The graphics are a lot better now, than they were in the original slot, a couple of years ago. The high end graphics will feature five different symbols with Jane in them, one of which is the wild. For the low symbols, the choice was made to use story-appropriate objects, ranging from handbags, to watches, cars, passports, money and laptops.
Agent Jane Blonde Returns is a better looking game than its predecessor, but the 300x top payout isn’t likely to inspire its players to stick with it in the long run.
