Reach for the Stars with Rocket Chimp Jackpot Slot

The first chimpanzees in space were Ham and Enos, who were sent on separate space missions by NASA in the early 1960s. Ham, who was launched on January 31, 1961, became the first hominid to be launched into space and return safely splashing down in the Atlantic. Enos followed on November 29, 1961, and orbited the Earth twice before returning safely to Earth. Both chimps were key to ensuring that NASA could successfully and safely launch humans into space and return them to Earth.

In this great tradition of chimps leading the way for humans, Mascot Gaming has dreamed up an intergalactic journey for a pioneering primate in its new release Space Chimp Jackpot slot.

Strap in and prepare for blast off

The slot has one of the more complicated methods I have ever seen to trigger a round of free spins. The appearance of three or more scatter symbols on the reels will add to either the free spins meter or to one of the three jackpot multipliers displayed above the reels. You will need to collect 15 free spins scatters to trigger a round of the slot’s free spins feature. The jackpot multipliers will continue to increase from 1x to a maximum of 1,000x for neon, 5,000 for violet, and 10,000x for gold. Jackpots can only be awarded during a round of free spins.

Once you manage to trigger a round of free spins, any spin that includes two or more scatter symbols will add additional free spins to your total. Jackpot symbols that appear during free spins will award the corresponding jackpot multiplier amount.

The only other bonus feature the slot has to offer is the wild symbol that will substitute for most other symbols to complete winning combinations.

Is Space Chimp Jackpot slot blasting off or stuck on the pad?

This one had greatness within it. However, it doesn’t quite deliver. Space Chimp Jackpot slot has a great theme that has a fun execution. However, the slot’s graphics are subpar and the bonus features are complex but not extensive, leaving it feeling like you’re doing a lot of work for very little reward. I would really love to see this one get a sequel with a little more attention to detail.

The slot does have medium volatility, meaning that you’ll be able to enjoy a nice balance between large less frequent wins and small more frequent wins. Plus, the 10,000x max multiplier means that for just €25 a spin you can play for up to €250,000 in winnings. If you’re not that flush, you can bet at the €0.25 a spin minimum and still have a chance to win €2,500. The slot has an RTP of 95.19%.

If you’d like to give a few other Mascot Gaming titles a try, I recommend giving the horror-themed Re-Kill and the anarchic Riot 2: Burn and Blow a try.
