For reasons not all of us can fathom, the lifestyle of being 38,000 feet in the air pretty much every couple of days and living in hotels rather than your own home, is actually attractive to some people. So, if you’re in this demographic this slot called Jetsetter might be just for you!
Presented over a standard 5 x 3 reel setup with a surprisingly modest 20 paylines, this glamorous slot takes you around the world’s most luxurious hotels, shops and casinos. It’s all about fame, power and money, those essential ingredients so many are searching for right now.
Welcome to a world for the elite
Set on a tacky looking off-pink background, with the reels surrounded by a gleaming and equally as tacky golden border, this slot doesn’t really do much for the image of the super-rich.
Garnish drapes and crystal chandeliers make the whole scene look like an oligarch’s kitchen cum billiard room, all it needs now is a drunk bouncer and some working girls for the crass image to be complete. But remember, you’re here to win some serious cash, so you too can live like this!
Overall there are thirteen different symbols, many of which are recognisable from the bricks and mortar casinos that the game aspires to be, but some other cliched images of the trappings of wealth too. The lower value symbols are often used playing card icons, 9, 10, J, Q, K and Ace. They have even managed to glam up these with purple lights, classy.
Higher value symbols consist of (and here’s where it gets really classy) a stripper, a casino roulette wheel, a yellow sports car, a yacht and a private jet. As few as two identical symbols across an active payline from left to right will bring you a tidy win. With any luck you too will become part of the 1% club, the one minority that doesn’t get treated badly.
And that’s not all...
Something called a Jetsetter Token icon will occasionally pop up on the reels, this is the wild, and can bring with it two different bonuses into play. The usual wild trick of substituting all other basic symbols to form wins is here, but this bad boy also doubles the value of any winning combination it created.
The scatter here comes in the form of a blonde haired girl holding a wad of cash, the stuff of dreams eh lads. She will award decent prizes regardless of paylines, but will also trigger 20 free spins bonus instantly, if you get a combination of three of these symbols.
During said bonus mode all symbols are replaced by dollar banknotes that have been ripped in half. Get two matching halves together on the reels to increase your current bet by the corresponding multiplier, to put this in context, a $2 note becomes a 2x multiplier, a $10 becomes 10x, and so on up to a very exciting 500x multiplier - that’s where the big money starts to look attainable.
The reality is that having lots of money is exciting and fun up to a point, and as with many areas of life probably the worst thing about being super rich is having to be around other super-rich people and put up with sickly-sweet luxurious surroundings. Jetsetter, however, has the real chance of making you significantly richer, with those incredible multipliers and free spins bonuses. It’s just a pity the look of the slot itself didn’t make being rich look so loathsome.
