Agent Jane Blonde Returns
Agent Jane Blonde Returns is the much-anticipated sequel to the original Agent Jane Blonde slot, which debuted in 2005. Microgaming have certainly taken their time in getting this slot to players at casino sites, and that is no doubt due to the fact that they wanted to get it right. This second outing from the slot gaming world’s favourite female spy doesn’t disappoint, even if it is somewhat minimalistic in terms of what it provides.
The second instalment in this series features just 15 paylines spanning 5 reels, and those lines are naturally fixed into place. However, wagers are surprisingly inexpensive. At its cheapest, Agent Jane Blonde Returns can cost as little as 5p a game. However, the high-end of the wagering range is ideal for big spenders, too, with bets capped at £400 a turn. Prizes are worth up to 300x a total stake, which is respectable for a fifteen-line game.
As mentioned, the Agent Jane Blonde sequel is a touch minimalistic in terms of the bonus features it offer to players, although no more so than its predecessor was. Agent Jane Blonde herself takes on the role of a wild, and these can naturally replace all symbols save for scatters. Wilds also dish out tasty wins.
The scatter symbols are where things get interesting in this release. They show up as the game’s title logo – as you would expect in most Microgaming slots. Such symbols can trigger a re-spin bonus when as few as two appear on the reels. There is no free spin bonus in Agent Jane Blonde Returns, but this re-spin feature is nonetheless capable of delivering action aplenty.
Once the re-spin feature begins, the scatter icons (at least two) which activated it will transform into wild symbols. These are held in place for the resulting re-spin. Should any further wilds or scatters land, they will also become sticky (as wilds) with additional re-spins offered to players. Provided you keep landing wilds/scatters, the re-spins will keep on coming. This only ends when no new wilds/scatters appear, or when the entire screen is filled with wild symbols. In the case of the latter, you’re looking at a very tasty win indeed.
No other bonus features are set to appear in Agent Jane Blonde Returns. Fortunately, the singular bonus round which does appear is so profitable that you aren’t really going to miss a free spin bonus feature.
Agent Jane Blonde Returns is a much-awaited sequel, and although Microgaming could have gone in many different directions with this slot, it is nice to see them staying true to the simplicity of the original release. There is enough action to suffice most players, and the lack of additional bonuses is perfectly reasonable when you weigh in how little this slot costs to play with the minimum bet. Players who are after something a touch different can always try their hand at the original Agent Jane Blonde slot, too, as both will be available at Microgaming casino sites.
