Jaws and Jaws: Night Hunter Aristocrat Slots
Jaws and Jaws: Night Hunter Aristocrat slots are the leading Australian slot machine manufacturer’s take on one of cinema’s most iconic thriller movie franchises. The games are currently land-based only, and are not available online.
Both games are video slots, and they draw heavily on the first film about the monstrous shark for graphics and imagery. In both games, the gaming action itself plays out over five reels and 25 paylines, and both offer a number of bonus features.
Among the bonus features in the games are Scatters, sticky Wilds, multipliers, and free spins. The free spins round in the second game is notable in that players can choose which bonus feature to apply to the round.
Big Screen Inspiration
The graphics found in the Jaws and Jaws: Night Hunter Aristocrat slots leave no doubt as to what film inspired the games. The reels are set in water that has been reddened by blood, while a shark fin can be seen just above the surface.
The reel symbols are based on scenes from the film; scenes that no doubt had audiences on the edge of their seats. They include not only characters with fear-widened eyes from the town of Amity, but object such as signs and newspapers that further increase the sense of threat and thrill.
Jaws and Jaws: Night Hunter Reel Symbols
The symbols churned up on the blood-soaked reels of Jaws and Jaws: Night Hunter Aristocrat slots are not all scenes from the blockbuster film. The lower value symbols are somewhat more sedate playing card symbols in pastel colours.
The themed symbols, on the other hand, include those such as eyes peering over a diving mask, things floating in the water, a shark warning sign, a newspaper report about an attack, various characters from the town of Amity, a security badge, and the famous image of the underside of the shark as it surges upward through the water.
Video Slot Bonus Features
The bonus features in Jaws and Jaws: Night Hunter Aristocrat slots enhance the basic gameplay in different ways. Some help other symbols form winning combinations, while others trigger free spins, and yet others come to the fore during the free spins rounds.
The Wild symbols can substitute for other symbols on the reels, thereby helping other symbols form winning combinations. During the free spins rounds, the Wilds are sticky.
This means that, if a Wild lands on the reels during the free spins round, it will stay in place for the rest of the round.
The Scatter symbols are the symbols that trigger the free spins round. Three or more need to appear anywhere on the reels to trigger the free spins.
Adjustable Gameplay Options
The land-based Jaws and Jaws: Night Hunter Aristocrat slots have a couple of adjustable playing options.
Coins of different denominations can be bet, and players can select how many paylines they want to activate. There are obviously neither downloadable nor instant-play digital versions of the game, but that doesn’t mean Aristocrat won’t look at digitising them for online and mobile in future.
