Bring some law and order to the reels with Judge and Jury Megaways, the online slot from Skywind. All the action takes place in the courtroom, but this is no dusty and dry affair - among all the criminals receiving justice, there's the chance to collect some cash. And there's plenty on offer with a top prize of x10,000.
Crime-themed slots are nothing new; you’ll find lots of titles from various studios. However, the focus is usually on the actual crimes being committed rather than the courtroom with titles such as Heist, The SlotFather and Win City. There is an online slot dedicated to the investigation, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and that’s also by Skywind! Judge and Jury Megaways is one of the rare slots which are centred on the courtroom, with Judge Judy by IGT one of the very few others!
As the name suggests, this game is a Megaways title, so it has the usual Megaways board. This means that a different number of tiles land on the six reels every spin, varying the number of ways to win. However, if all the reels land with the maximum number of symbols on each, there's a total of 117,649 ways to win. Of course, that includes the horizontal reel, which sits across the top of the vertical six reels, the same layout that's included in many other Megaways slots. Betting starts at 0.20 and can be increased to the max bet of 200.00. This will attract the eyes of high rollers, especially when matched with a high volatility.
There’s a lot going on visually, and you’ll notice something new each time you play! From the frowning judge wearing a wig and ceremonial robes to the wooden balustrade and crown crest, it’s a compelling design that puts you right in the centre of the court action.
The 10-A playing cards line up for the low pays while the premium symbols include robbers, policemen, safes, handcuffs and judges. A full line pays up to x1 for the low pays and up to x7.5 for the premiums.
There are two wild symbols in this slot, a red and a blue siren, and both can substitute for any of the regular symbols to help you win. Keep your eyes open in particular for the red one; this only appears on the top horizontal reel, and when it lands, it expands downwards to cover all positions.
Megaways slots tend to have more features than average, but this game is particularly rammed with fun extras.
The reels include the typical cascades, which means that for every win, the matching symbols are removed and replaced with new ones. This provides an extra opportunity to get another win without having to spend more cash. The cascades cycle continues until no more visible matches can be found.
The judge symbol has a little something extra tucked up the sleeves of his gown. Sometimes when he lands, he'll get a bit more involved and do one of two special actions. The first is to remove the low pays on any non-winning spin, replacing them instead with premium symbols. The second is adding up to six wilds to the reels, a great move to improve the likelihood of a payout.
On the right side of the reels, you'll notice a Wanted poster which changes on each turn - this isn't just decoration! Every spin will also produce a different Wanted poster on the reels. If the two posters match, you'll get a cash payout of up to x5000. If the event of a win, the Wanted poster will disappear from the board, and a cascade will occur.
There are free spins available too, but you'll need to land four scatters. You'll receive ten free spins, plus five more free spins for every additional scatter. There's a maximum of 20 free spins up for grabs. During the free spins round, every time you win the multiplier increases by +1.
You can retrigger the free spins bonus by landing three or more scatters.
And if all that wasn't enough, there's an additional bonus round that can be accessed during free spins. If you land three cell symbols, you'll unlock the ID Parade feature. With four suspects in sight, you'll receive between one and four picks depending on how many cells you landed. Behind each suspect is a prize which could be a multiplier, more free spins or a cash payout of up to x100.
Judge and Jury Megaways is a phenomenal online slot from Skywind which has more cash prizes than a robber's loot bag! If you're tired of playing the same old features, this game makes a refreshing change, and with the broad betting range, it's accessible to all. All rise for the Judge and Jury!
