Jaws is a branded 5-reel, 25-line video slot game from Aristocrat based on the blockbuster movie from 1975 directed which was by Steven Spielberg.
Jaws offers scatter pays and bonus features. The “Jaws” symbol is wild and substitutes for all symbols, except for the scattered “Tooth” symbol.
If one or more “Jaws” symbol substitutes in a win the pay for that win is multiplied by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20 or 100.
The player is awarded the advertised scatter pay when two or more “Tooth” symbols appear in any position.
The game is always played with 25 lines. The player chooses the bet multiplier and then presses the ‘Play’ button to begin the game. The bet is 35 credits multiplied by the bet multiplier.
All wins begin with the leftmost reel and pay left to right only on adjacent reels, except scatters.
All wins are multiplied by the bet multiplier except scatters and progressives.
Scatter wins are multiplied by the bet multiplier and the number of lines played. Line wins are on lit lines only.
Only the highest win is paid on each line. Wins on different lines are added.
Scatter wins are added to line wins.
All wins are shown in credits, except progressives.
JAWS BONUS FEATURES
The ‘Jaws Feature’ is initiated when three or more scatter “Tooth” symbols appear anywhere on the reels.
The ‘Jaws Feature’ can also be initiated randomly at the end of any spin of the reels. When initiated, the player is prompted to choose one of the following features:
‘15 Free Games’ – if one or more “Jaws” symbols substitutes in a win the pay for that win is multiplied by 5, 10 or 20.
‘10 Free Games’ – if one or more “Jaws” symbol substitutes in a win the pay for that win is multiplied by 5, 10, 20 or 100.
‘5 Free Games’ – if one or more “Jaws” symbol substitutes in a win the pay for that win is multiplied 20 or 100.
‘Dice Feature’ – Three dice games are awarded. Nine dice are displayed on the screen. Each dice game starts with the eight outer dice being rolled. If one or more “Jaws” symbols are rolled then all the “Jaws” symbols are held and the remaining outer dice are rolled again.
This continues until no more “Jaws” symbols are rolled or eight “Jaws” symbols appear. At the end of each dice game a prize is awarded for the number of “Jaws” symbols spun up. Prizes are multiplied by the bet multiplier on the game that initiated the feature as shown on the screen.
At the completion of any three dice games the middle die is rolled and if “3 more games” is rolled another three dice games are played.
The ‘Jaws Feature’ can be won again during the free games. The number of features remaining is indicated by the number on the “Retrigger” icon.
The bet multiplier is the same as the game that initiated the feature. Return to player for all four feature choices is essentially the same.
The ‘Jaws Bonus’ feature may be awarded at the end of any bought game to give the player one of the following bonus features:
‘Feeding Time’ – Twenty images are displayed on the screen. The player is allowed to touch two images to reveal the player’s prizes. The player may make selections at any time. Images disappear at random, revealing prizes.
The prizes revealed are no longer available to be won. Available prizes are listed on the screen and are already multiplied by the bet multiplier.
Prizes that are no longer available are crossed out. If the player picked two prizes the player wins the sum of those prizes.
If the player picked a prize and a multiplier the player wins the prize value multiplied by the multiplier. If the player does not make a selection(s) the player wins the last available prize(s).
‘Shark Hunter’ – A sonar screen with 20 “Question Mark” positions is displayed on the screen. The player chooses how many chances the player wants to find the shark.
The prize the player will win for finding the shark is multiplied by the bet multiplier, as shown on the screen.
The player is to touch “Question Mark” position on the sonar until the player finds the shark, or have used up all the picks.
If the player does not find the shark the player will be awarded a consolation prize of between 35 and 120 credits, multiplied by the bet multiplier as shown on the screen.
The ‘Jaws Link Jackpot Board Game’ can be won at random during any bought game.
If the ‘Jaws Link’ feature is initiated during game play, a board with “Boat” and “Shark” marker and a 3×3 new set of reels will be displayed on the screen.
The board has 20 squares labeled with ‘Mini’, ‘Minor’, ‘Major’ or ‘Grand’ jackpot. The “Boat” starts on position 1 (top left hand corner) and the “Shark” starts on position 5 of the board.
The board game reels will spin. For every “Boat” symbol spun up on the reels the “Boat” marker moves one position in a clockwise direction.
For every “Shark” symbol spun up on the reels the “Shark” marker moves one position in a clockwise direction.
When the “Boat” marker and the “Shark” marker come to rest on the same position, the jackpot denoted on that position is awarded and the feature ends.
Every five spins of the reels one position on the board will change to “Grand” jackpot. If the reels have spun 30 times and no jackpot has been won, the “Mini” jackpot is awarded.
‘Golden Jaw’ – An open shark mouth with 20 teeth is displayed on the screen. The player is prompted to touch a tooth to win a prize. The shark mouth will remain open for the first two touches. Prizes are added to the ‘Treasure’ meter.
After the first two touches it is for the player to decide whether to continue touching or to press the “Take Treasure” button on the screen and be awarded the amount on the ‘Treasure’ meter. Optimal strategy advice is shown on the screen.
If the player touches a tooth and the shark mouth remains open, the prize is added to the ‘Treasure’ meter.
If the player touches a tooth and the shark mouth closes, the player is awarded half of the amount on the ‘Treasure’ meter (rounded up to the nearest credit) and the feature ends.
When only one tooth remains to be selected, the shark mouth will remain open for the last touch. Prizes shown on the screen are already multiplied by the bet multiplier on the game that started the feature.
Available prizes are 50, 100, 200, 300, 500, 1000 and 2500 credits, multiplied by the bet multiplier as shown on the screen.
