Jazz themed online slots always look stylish and sexy, and IGT’s own take on the genre certainly fits the bill.
The Big Easy was launched in 2017 as a take on the New Orleans jazz scene, and the casino software developers have pulled it off wonderfully.
With its realistic graphics, its funky music and its decent features, there is a lot to like about The Big Easy.
Look and feel
The Big Easy features hand-drawn but creative graphics, including live music posters, various jazz players and singers, bourbon, lobsters and oysters and neon signs, all of which lend a hand (alongside the audio) to promote the theme of this slot.
Even IGT’s traditional wagering menu bar has had a bit of a pep up to make it flashier.
The Big Easy features just 20 paylines spread over its 5 reels, and players are not going to be able to alter the number of lines which feature in the slot.
They can, however, opt to wager anything from a floor bet of just 20p per spin, right up to a ceiling bet which is capped at £400 a spin.
If that doesn’t twist your arm, the fact that The Big Easy comes with a non-progressive jackpot worth 3,000 coins surely will.
The Big Easy neon sign acts as a wild symbol in this slot, and landing it can see the icon replace all others in the game, barring scatters.
Those scatters appear as moon symbols. Landing 3 or more on the reels is enough to trigger the slot’s bonus feature, a free games round.
In the feature, players can choose a jazz club to determine the number of spins they will start the bonus with, whilst selecting an instrument will determine the multiplier present in the bonus.
Players could end up playing The Big Easy with anything from 8 up to 25 free spins, whilst multipliers range from a floor of 2x up to a ceiling of 10x the normal rate of pay in the bonus round.
