The Compass Feature
The compass feature is activated by landing three or more scatters or through the Pick and Click feature. When activated, the compass can either award you 10 Jackpot Free Spins or trigger the Treasure Hunt Feature. The scatter symbol only appears during the base game. Three scatters will award you the compass, four scatters award the compass and 50x the stake while five scatters will reward the compass and a coin win of 500x the bet.
Pick And Click Feature
When activated, the Pick and Click feature present the player with five chests to choose from. Inside you will find these prizes:
- 10 jackpot Free Spins
- A coin win of 1x, 2x, or 4 x the bet
- The Treasure Hunt Bonus feature launch
- One random Map added to the Map collection.
There are five different maps to be collected and each has its own colour. There is the Highland Gate Map, The Summit Shrine Map, the Desert Tomb Map, the Jungle Ruins Map, and the Templar Grave Map. A map can only appear on its allocated reel and when you collect five matching maps, you are awarded 10 Jackpot Free Spins, with one gem being added in that reel’s pool of jackpot gems. You will start off with two summit Shrine maps and one of each of the other maps.
Treasure Hunt Bonus Feature
When this feature is triggered by the Compass, you will first be required to choose between Sam or Bear and the character you choose will open a chest. Sam offers better rewards but a lower chance of success, while Bear is more likely to uncover a win, which is smaller. When you select your avatar, three chests are presented for selection: Safe, Risk and Very Risky. The riskier the bet, the higher multiple on success. However, the chance to win a map, massive coin payout or relic is determined by the difficulty of opening the chests. Each character is offered with three attempts to cross the river and reclaim the chest.
Sunken City Free Spins
When five relics are collected during the Treasure Hunt Bonus Feature, the Sunken City Free Spins Feature is triggered. The feature awards you 10 free spins. Wins from this feature are subjected to x10 multiplier and you will begin with one gem to each jackpot collection.
Graphics And Sound
If you love fantasy-themed pokies and stunning scenery that is quite reminiscent of Lord of The Rings, then you will definitely love the feel and look of Jackpot Raiders slot. Once you hit one of the features, you will be taken to a different location as you progress your adventure. The soundtrack will reflect the action, ensuring that you will stay alert and ready for the awaiting excitement.
Jackpot Raiders Jackpot
Being a jackpot pokie, the game presents you with five jackpots that can only be achieved in the Jackpot Free Spins round. It is worth mentioning that the probability of winning a jackpot in each spin is proportional to the size of your bet. The jackpots are progressive and come with these starting values:
- Forgotten Jackpot- $40
- Rare Jackpot-$200Mthical Jackpot-$ 600
- Ancient Jackpot-$1500
- Legendary Jackpot-$15 000
Jackpot Raiders is a medium to high variance game and you can win up to 4,100x your stake on each spin. The higher pays come from the progressive jackpots, but there is a high chance that you can also win big from the multiple bonus features.
The Sunken City Free Spins feature, however, is the most rewarding. You can win 2000x your stake from this feature although triggering it can be quite a task.
