Bear Cubs are unleashed on Jackpotjoy Slots!

You can become a serverless blackbelt. Enrol in my course Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! and learn best practices for performance, cost, security, resilience, observability and scalability. By the end of this course, you should be able to make informed decisions on which AWS service to use with Lambda and how to build highly scalable, resilient and cost efficient serverless applications.

Another Thursday had gone by and yet another slot has been added to JackpotJoy Slots, this time it’s a grizzly themed 50-line slot called Bear Cubs!

The main slots game is pretty straight forward, albeit being 50-lines instead of the typical 25, where things really become interesting is the bonus feature. When you land 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols on the reels you’ll trigger the Golden Cub Spins bonus game with 5, 8 or 12 free spins respectively.

At the start of the bonus game the player has to choose one of the three grizzlies as his golden cub, and over the course of the bonus game any time a Wild symbol or the golden cub’s symbol lands on the reels they’ll be locked in place for the reminder of the bonus game and act as Wilds.

The video below will hopefully give you a pretty good idea of how the bonus game works and as you can see, it’s possible to amass a massive win from the bonus game, even on a small wager!
