Released by Microgaming, Jason and the Golden Fleece is a slot that is based on the legends of the Ancient Greece. The adventures of Jason and of the group he led, the Argonauts, are mentioned as they went to search for the Golden Fleece. The slot machine we get here is a modern one, where you get a chance to experience some of their adventures. It’s got a great design, with cartoon like characters and views, but very well done. The slot even has some decent features, including here the wild symbols, the scatters, multipliers and free spins. The game delivers 25 lines, with the usual 5 reels supporting them. The big prize appears to go up to $30,000.
Betting and Prizes
You have 25 lines in the game, and you can modify the bet as you want to, increasing or decreasing the number of lines, coins or denominations. You are the one that decides how many coins will be part of each line’s wager, the maximum being 10 coins. Since denominations will go up to $0.50, no more, you can have bets of up to 250 coins, worth $125 or less.
The slot seems to deliver payouts of up to 20,000 coins for regular combinations, but it can also triple that amount during free spins. You get up to 60,000 coins this way, which can’t be worth more than $30,000.
Jason Slot Features
Look out for the game logo if you need some help with your combinations. The symbol which uses that image is the one with the ability to replace a regular symbol, to act as a wild basically. You use it as a scatter as well, but more on that below. As a wild, it can replace most symbols, but not scatters. 2x multipliers are applied by wilds to new wins they help form.
The same wild symbols can also be used as scatters, so no matter where they are on the reels, if at least three are present, then you get a feature with 10 free spins and with 3x multipliers. You can also retrigger the free spins, with the same 3+ wilds/scatter Logos.
The Golden Fleece gets to act as the second scatter of this game. You use it to get paid, and very well, up to 100x the bet. This could mean up to 25,000 coins in this slot machine, and all you need to do is land that symbol in up to five random positions.
Jason’s Journey is a feature which will start up when you get 3 to 5 of the Golden Fleece scatters, in addition to the cash prize I mentioned already. With each new trigger of the bonus game, the ship which carries the Argonauts will move to a new location on the map, so the more you play, the more you advance on it. You have a total of six levels in this bonus game, one for each occasion where you trigger it.
Theme & Design
The graphics are gorgeous, and the symbols all include images which are appropriate for this particular theme. You get images with the various characters, monsters and creatures from the legends, along with objects which were used back then.
Jason and the Golden Fleece is a Microgaming slot machine that I’d recommend you try out, for a number of reasons, ranging from its payouts, to its many features and its cool graphics.
