The Jumpin’ Jalapenos slot game is a release from Konami that is consistent with their other seemingly random, yet interesting themes. As its name suggests, there are human personifications of jalapenos all throughout the game, and the game has a very Mexican feel. The game takes you to a small Mexican town where you must participate in a daunting jalapeno eating contest. Hold your own in the game and you very well might come back from South of the Border a few pesos richer.
The game’s graphics are great and are consistent with other Konami games in that it has a very cartoonish feel to it. The game is fun, and if you earn 3 red chili pepper symbols you will trigger an additional 12 free games. Should you run across the extra tall Wild Mexican Man symbol during a free bonus game, your prizes will be amplified.
This is a penny slot machine with a nontraditional 5 reel setup. The first and fifth reels feature 4 rows of symbols while the middle 3 feature 5. The minimum wager is 60 credits ($0.60) and there are a total of 30 paylines and 2 progressive jackpots of varying sizes.
As mentioned above, Jumpin Jalapenos has a feature round triggered by 3 chili symbols. If, during the free game feature you land a Wild Mexican Man symbol on any of the reels, the other lines on the same reel will be nudged such that the Wild Mexican Man symbol is stacked across the entirety of the reel.
During the free game feature, the credits bet and number of lines being played will be the exact same as they were before the bonus round was triggered. It is important to mention that the bonus-triggering chilis symbol only exists on reels 2, 3, and 4, including during the free game feature.
Jumpin’ Jalapenos is not the most popular Konami game but can be found in most larger casinos. Online, the game can be found just about anywhere. Despite the brick and mortar version of the game being produced by Konami, the online version of the game was created as a collaboration between Williams Interactive and Konami. The gameplay is identical to the brick and mortar and online versions, however, the minimum bet can vary.
