G’day! Agent Jane Blonde Max Volume is the 3rd release in the Agent Jane Blonde series and the 2nd slot release since Stormcraft Studios took over the title, and this game makes use of a number of exciting features and great visuals.
It’s another great toon game (you may also want to try the Dr Wildshock Mad Loot Lab slot which is another Microgaming collaboration, this time with Gold Coin Studios)
For their second attempt with Agent Jane Blonde, Microgaming’s design partner has opted for fresh game mechanics and some shiny new features. You could say Jane has been to the spa.
Once again. there are many references to the world of international espionage including sports cars, cocktails and gadgets along with the top female spy herself. Join Jane Blonde on a top secret mission to land high-value symbols with great game play features in this bonus-filled bonanza.
Let’s strap into her Aston Martin and go and take a look around. Agent Jane seems to be taking over from that other heroine in games like the Cat Wilde and the Lost Chapter slot.
Agent Jane Blone Max Volume Look and Feel
At first glance, you might be tricked into believing you’ve fired up Agent Jane Blonde Returns because of the cityscape backdrop used in both releases.
However, developers Stormacraft have used a purple filter in the Max Volume release as opposed to the blue overcast in the second instalment. Behind the grid here, players can make out lights of a distant city skyline with skyscrapers peaking above the game grid.
Stormcraft are partner of Microgaming by the way (like Just for the Win who are behind the Wildfire Wins slot and Deco Diamonds).
Other visual features that differ from the earlier release include a playgrid frame boasting 243 paylines, with each reel topped by a neatly shaped red gemstone. Across the top of the screen are the 3 jackpots available to players, the bronze, silver and gold chests that can reward players between 5.00 and 100.00.
The play controls of this slot are located to the right of the screen: the spin, quickspin and autospin buttons where you will launch the action. The betting stake options are also available to the right: pick your stake or check out the main menu feature with game info and options.
Symbols and Game Play
The symbols you will see across the reels include the lower value card suits in various bright colours that stand out against the purple backdrop. Values increase from combinations of 3 to 5 of the Club, Diamond, Heart and Spade symbols. Higher payouts can be triggered from combinations of the various spy-related paraphernalia, including a smartphone and car keys, a spy drone, a martini and a jewelled necklace.
The main game’s highest value symbol is a red sports car that can reward players up to 6x the stake for 5 across a payline. This is a medium variance game with a high pay-line count that offers a greater number of winning combinations. Look out for the game logo Wild symbols and an Agent Jane Blonde Scatter that can drop across the reels and bring bonus features into play on this slot.
You might recognise the bonus features in Agent Jane Blonde Max Volume from earlier Microgaming releases. Stormcraft has used a few bonus tricks here, the most prominent being a cascading reels mechanic that replaces winning symbols with new ones from the pay-line above, offering more winning potential.
So you can put together multiple winning combinations in the same spin until a win doesn’t land.
Along with this main game feature, there is a Wild symbol that can be used to make up more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols.
You can access the Free Spin feature of Agent Jane Blonde Max Volume by landing a Scatter symbol on all 5 of the reels in play. When a Scatter lands in a reel the red jewel above that reel will light up and when all 5 jewels light up, you trigger the Free Spins feature. Here you get a choice of:
– 15 Free Spins with a 1x multiplier that increased by +1 after each spin.
– 10 Free Spins with a 2x multiplier that increases by +2 after each spin.
– 5 Free Spins with a 5x multiplier that increases by +5 after each spin.
What is great about this feature is the choice. You set your risk and volatility level.
With a multiplier up to 25x available for a single spin there is potential for some tidy payouts, but you will have fewer spins to land winning combos. This feature can be retriggered if the Agent Jane Blonde Scatter lands on all 5 reels again. The multiplier will go as high as 100x, a great addition.
Finally, the 3 jackpot prizes at the top of the screen can be activated at random from any spin with a 100.00 win. These jackpots can be accessed when 5 of the Agent Jane Blonde Scatters drop anywhere across the reels from a single spin, (unlike the Free Spins round that can be built up gradually). When you land 5 Scatters from a single spin the game randomly awards you either the bronze, silver or gold jackpot.
We were worried that this game would be too similar to its predecessor to be honest, but fair play, Stormcraft have developed a number of new bonus features that make for entertaining play along with an extra 228 paylines to land winning combinations. The audio features in play live up to the slot title and along with some solid bonuses, this is another great slot release from Stormcraft and Microgaming!
