It’s fair to say that there are tons of slot games on the market that cover crimes such as bank jobs. And it makes sense for crime and primarily bank jobs to be a popular genre because it's so exciting, right?
As always, if you want to stand out from the crowd, you’ve got to do something different. And it’s precisely the avenue that Skywind goes down. So, yes, Judge & Jury Megaways is a crime-themed slot, but it's one that takes after the bank heist, for example, which is an entirely new way of looking at things.
What’s typical of crime slots is that they take place in the run-up to or during the event, so having a game that is set in a courthouse is totally fresh. And, with a judge on hand with his gavel, punters will find out whether they’ve been successful in their quest to bag some riches or if jail is the next stop.
Skywind also introduce the exciting Megaways mechanic into the mix in Judge & Jury, which is sure to go down well with everyone who plays the game. Of course, Megaways does change the game’s layout, with there being six reels and the number of paylines ranging from 324 to 117,649. It will undoubtedly be one of the game's biggest attractions because who doesn’t want a chance to spin the reels with 117,649 ways to win active?
There’s not just one way to bet in Judge & Jury Megaways. There are two. The normal mode sees bets per spin starting at 20p, with a top stake of £200 available. However, there is Double Chance mode to get involved with, where stakes increase by 25%, but there’s double the chance of winning some free spins.
The royals in Judge & Jury Megaways, which are 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, pay the least. But, for six of a kind, the prizes work out at between 8x and 20x the active bet, which isn’t bad.
Themed symbols in the game include the judge, policeman, thief, handcuffs and a safe. Prizes up for grabs here are worth between 30x and 150x for six of a kind.
As mentioned above, there are a couple of betting modes to check out in the game. And, Skywind continues this trend by including two wilds in the game. The blue police siren wild will replace regular icons on the reels. While the red police siren, which lands on the top reel, can transform the icons below it. Both wilds can also pay up to 150x the bet for a line of six.
If you want free spins, the pink game logo scatter is the icon to watch out for, while the prisoner behind bars has similar powers, but there will be an I.D. Parade mini-game to play first.
The Judge in this Skywind game can benefit players by removing lower-paying icons from the reels, with themed symbols falling into their place. He can also add up to six wilds at random.
As the reels spin, punters will notice there is a wanted poster to the right that regularly changes. If matching wanted posters land on the reels, there are prizes of up to 5,000x the bet up for grabs.
Pink game logo scatters are needed to collect up to twenty free spins. And, as they’re played through, a progressive multiplier can grow.
As we mentioned above, there’s the I.D. Parade,and extra free spins and massive multipliers are the prizes available.
When you’re spinning the reels of a video slot, you’re trying to pull off a big score. And it’s a fun concept. But Skywind mixes things up by introducing the aftermath of the event. Again, it's a fun take on proceedings, with the inclusion of the judge and an I.D parade a masterstroke. If you want to play a crime-themed slot with a difference, then look no further.
