Shopping Spree Jackpot is a progressive video slot made by Eyecon. It’s a virtual trip to the mall for some retail therapy across 5 reels with 25 paylines.
Wilds are there to double your payouts and the bonus feature can award an amazing 240 free spins with 3x the normal payout rate. At 0.25 – $12.50 per spin, this is your chance to actually gain money whilst filling your shopping bags.
Eyecon are known for making simplistic slots and this one is no exception. Eyecon is made up of a relatively small group of games design and software development companies based in Australia. Their software is provided to some of the world’s biggest gaming websites with thousands of players all across the globe. Despite having been operating since 1997, it has only been recently that their popularity has really taken off, and they have over 100 slot games to their name.
The visuals have a simplistic, cartoon-like style. On the reels, there are 4 discount symbols which each award up to 100 coins. In ascending order of value, you’ll also see a gift box, tea and cake, a ring and perfume bottle and, at the very top, high heels and a necklace. With these top payers appearing 2-5 times on the reels, you will win between 2 and 950 coins.
The wild is a female shopper who substitutes everything but the scatter. If you manage to land her on 2-5 of the reels you’ll be awarded 10-9,500 coins. Your payout will also be doubled whenever the wild combines with standard symbols to form a winning combination.
If you land the handbag scatter 2-5 times, you will trigger the Free Games feature. It’s a free spins round that also awards a payout of 5x, 20x or 450x your total stake if you get it. During the free spins, all payouts are tripled, and if you are lucky enough to get 3+ scatters on a single spin the free spins are re-triggered. This can happen a maximum of 15 times, meaning there is the potential to get an enormous 240 free spins.
The jackpot is 9,500 coins in a medium variance game that has a reported RTP of 92.9%.
Eyecon’s slots have become popular for the pick’em and match bonus features, but they don’t make an appearance in Shopping Spree Jackpot. All in all, it isn’t a bad slot, but it doesn’t succeed in exciting the player like many others do. It’s worth checking out if you like to try different games, and the potential payouts are up to 1,140x your stake for every spin.
