Get a Taste of New Orleans, in Live Jazz
Live Jazz will give you exactly the kind of theme that you expect when you read that title. The game is inspired by the nightlife of New Orleans, by the jazz clubs that you can find there, and the talented musicians that you can listen to if you visit it.
The beginning for jazz music comes from the late 19th century and the start of the 20th. It’s a type of music that was developed by the African Americans living around New Orleans back then, and it made the jump to this day, where it is enjoyed by a lot of people.
The game will give you features that involve wild symbols, scatters and free spins, the standard options which will make any game more fun to play. It’s a 5×3 reels pokie machine, it has 5 lines which pay both ways, and it will award payouts of $1,500 at best.
What We Love
The atmosphere is important when you look at a jazz themed game, especially one which tries to show off an event with live music from a nightclub. Genesis Gaming has done a good job with the topic of Live Jazz, and with the images that were placed inside.
It takes you from the street on which the night clubs are located, to the entrance of the one with the neon Live Jazz sign, to the stage with the two singers, and then to things like posters, glasses of whiskey or musical instruments. The quality of the graphics was very good.
The fact that combinations can form going from the right to the left, as well as to the left to the right, will bring up the profitability of the game, and in fact, with all other things considered, Live Jazz is going to go over 97% for the average RTP.
I’ve found that the scatter symbol, showing the Moon and music travelling up to it, is the one to pay the most, but at the same time it doesn’t have any other role to fulfill. It’s only a way to pay a prize, and it will give you the best one it has when five scatters are on the reels.
It’s a 75x total bet prize, valued at up to $1,500. Feature wise, the wild symbol is much more important, since it can trigger free spins as well. As long as you have three or more wilds present, the game will give you something.
If they’re scattered around, you get their substitution ability when combined with others, along with access to free spins. When they’re arranged in a combo, they offer a prize which could reach 200 coins.
3+ scattered wilds gets you into a Live Jazz feature, where you choose a bar to play in, finding out this way how many free spins you won, between 5 and 25. The second choice is of a musical instrument, which will decide how many extra wilds will be present, the range in this case being 2 to 5.
What We Do Not Like
I haven’t found major things to worry about, and even though the top prizes are small, the RTP is quite good for a pokie.
Live Jazz has a good design, decent features and better than average RTP, so if you’re fond of this music style, I think it’s worth trying out.
