While scouring the Internet, we were only able to find a few games that were created by JPM available at online casinos today. At first glance, these machines don’t seem to be much to look at; the presentation is rather straightforward, and there aren’t any fancy animations or advanced, multi-part bonus rounds to work your way through.
But appearances can be deceiving, and when you begin to play their games, you’ll understand why JPM has been successful even if their products may slip a bit under the radar at first glance. In particular, the company has made some good games that use the classic fruit machine format, which plays into their penchant for products that involve at least some small skill component. A few of the best examples we’ve found include:
Ker-Ching: This game is your basic, three-reel, single payline fruit machine that you’ve played a million times before. There are cherries, bars, and sevens (along with a JPM logo), and you’ll have to hit three in a row in order to score a win. You’ll also be occasionally treated to holds and nudges, as you would on any fruit machine.
But there’s a significant twist here in the form of the Ker-Ching symbol. If you find one of these symbols on each of the three reels – even if they aren’t actually on the win line – you’ll set the bonus round in motion. The reels will start spinning of their own accord, back and forth, stopping at random. Your symbols will be recorded, and several such spins will take place; you’ll earn prizes if you hit three of the same symbol over the course of the entire feature, even if they aren’t on the same spin. This can quickly add up to some enormous wins, as you can take down several of the top prizes before the feature stops.
El Dorado Max Power: The Max Power series is one of this developer’s hallmarks in the land-based world, so it only makes sense that they would create a version for their online clients to utilize as well. Once again, this machine uses a rather basic three-reel layout, though this is a multiline slot, giving players five paylines to win on. You’ll be matching fruits, sevens and diamonds, and once again, only three-in-a-row matches can score wins. Three “Max Power” symbols in a row will earn you an instant bonus that could earn you dozens of times your initial stake, while the JPM symbol can lead you into a free spins round with progressively larger multipliers on your wins.
A Pot of Gold: Another fruit machine title, A Pot of Gold is unique in at least two different ways. First, we’ve never seen a slots-style game that relies on so few symbols! There are only four unique symbols that can appear on the reels: horseshoes, rainbows, clovers, and the pot of gold itself, which is wild. With nudges and holds to improve your odds, having so few symbols makes wins very likely at any time! The pot of gold also adds a twist: while most of the game takes place on a single payline, the pot of gold pays in any direction, with three in a row awarding the game’s jackpot prize.
Full House: This interesting game uses a very unusual four-reel format, while otherwise utilizing a standard fruit machine style. There are a variety of three and four symbol combinations that can score wins, while a variety of special features and a post-spin gamble option ensure that the gameplay never gets dull.
