About Agent Jane Blonde Returns
With a decade of rocking the online casinos, Agent Jane Blonde still boasts a special hold among many online slot machine enthusiasts. Microgaming now revisits this all-time heroine to give her what we hope finds the agent’s followers waiting. Let’s find out if our second trip into the world of espionage is anything of a renewed adventure with the bold female spy.
What Does She Bring this Time?
Recent years have seen Microgaming team up with flourishing independent studios to give us nothing short of a royal treat with endless special offerings. This time Stormcraft Studios is the talent behind Agent Jane Blonde Returns.
We explore a little of the original Agent Jane Blonde to see where Stormcraft had to apply some force to push things into a better shape. We all remember the five reels and 9 pay lines structure. And there is that ‘Expert’ mode where you had to organize your autoplay settings to cap your loss level. Take this with the noteworthy free spins feature, and that is all you had in terms of game mechanics.
Agent Blonde Gone Insanely Wild
Most of the things in Agent Jane Returns Slot are great upgrades. Visually, the return of Agent Jane includes up to date HD graphics, which is a landing worlds away from the crude cartoony figures in the original Agent Jane Blonde. The reels sit on a city landscape at night. A fresh cinematic soundtrack is a great appeal to fans of classic James Bond 007 movies.
Symbols on the reels include laptops, handbags, cars, watches, cash, and passports. High-value symbols consist of 4 Agent Jane Blonde images showing her under various circumstances. You’ll find her in stealth mode, in underwater gears, with glasses and a hat, and in classy attires.
Interestingly, Agent Jane now returns as a super stacked wild and not a mere wild we met in the original release. Today she possesses the power to expand and fill the entire reels in the base game to give us impressive payouts.
Wilds and Respins
The gameplay is built on a 5 reels and 15 pay lines layout which is an improvement from the 9 pay lines in the predecessor slot. You can choose your coin size from a minimum of $0.50 to $400 maximum. There is quite a range to keep both low wager and high wager players happy. You will also notice that the variance of Agent Jane Blonde Returns is on the lower end of the scale. That is something great for low wager players.
Agent Jane Blonde Returns logo is the scatter symbol. Get two of these logo symbols on the reels and trigger a respin feature. The two scatters will be transformed into wilds and stay locked on the reels. A free spin is then activated. If you land more wilds, they’ll also be held locked on the reels with more respins being awarded. These process repeats until there are no more wilds landing on the reels. You keep landing the logo scatters, and the entire reels will be filled with wilds unlocking massive payouts.
Unfortunately, that’s all we found regarding the features of the slot. We find this undeserving for a sequel we so much anticipated. We still have a good shot at nice payouts thanks to the re-spin feature, but this is certainly not enticing enough.
Go Classic with the Popular Thunderstruck and the Original Agent Jane Blonde
It appears the former agent will be resuming her duties, including rewarding free games, a feature that we were disappointed to find as it was so diminished in the latest release. Free games is the best thing that will happen to you when you team up with the old agent. 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels will activate 15 free games. Any win during this round will yield 3 times.
Agent Jane serves as the slot’s wild. She substitutes for the regular symbols on the reels and doubles any win she becomes part of. Land 5 of a kind on the reels and you have a whopping 10,000 coins to carry home.
The popular Thunderstruck also defies its age to keep you supplied with up to 15 free games. The free spins round is triggered with at least 3 scatter symbols. Wins are also tripled during the bonus round. The Thor wild doubles any win that it helps to form while 5 of a kind will yield 10,000 times your line bet.
Agent Jane Blonde Returns: Stormcraft at its Best
We’ve seen dozens of slots burst into online and mobile casinos each year, but not all will come with the anticipation that Agent Jane Blonde Returns built. While there is still much we could use on the feature side of the slot, we find the extra details a step-up relative to the original Agent Jane Blonde.
It’s only second after the excellent Fortunium in the Stormcraft library. These two stunning releases are perfect indicators of what a force Stormcraft developers have become.
