Jeopardy! Slot machine from IGT belongs to their series of branded slots. The slot machine is based on the very popular tv quiz show that has been hosted by the great Alex Trebek. Jeopardy!® was created by Merv Griffin in 1964 and is one of the most popular quiz shows that ever been televised. What makes Jeopardy!® unique is the form that the contesters are presented with the answers rather than the question. If the contesters manage to find the right question to the answer, they have managed to win the prize. Jeopardy!® has been adapted to many international tv channels since the start in 1964. IGT has once again managed to bring a strong brand to reels. Jeopardy!® by IGT has 9 pay lines for you to bet on over the 5 reels. The game also includes both a Jeopardy!® Bonus and then later a Final Jeopardy! feature where you can win big by wagering the bonus amount against a 2 out of 3 possibility to pick the person that will have the correct question to the answer. Jeopardy!® by IGT is a very entertaining slot machine even if you’re not a fan of the tv show.
Graphics & Sound
Jeopardy!® is a very strong brand with a very well-known concept. IGT has managed to adapt this to the reels. The design and music is just like to tv show. The game window sits neatly on a background which looks like a photo from the original tv show. The colouring is identical to the concept; the blue reels resembles the blue score board. The music could’ve had a bigger impact on the slot machine. It would’ve been great to have the classic Jeopardy!® theme song playing while you’re spinning the reels. The overall impression of Jeopardy!® from IGT is a very positive one; the graphics and sound are 100% in consistency with the theme of this slot machine.
