IGT has launched yet another slots game based on the theme of a popular television game show. The developer has released a video slot called Jeopardy!, which employs the theme of the popular theme of the game show by the same name. The sound effects and the visuals in the game are similar to that of the original TV show, giving the game an authentic fee.

You can find this amazing slot machine even at Showboat in Atlantic City. The game is also available for play online, at select casinos featuring IGTs games.
Jeopardy! is a 5-reel video slot with 9 paylines and multiple bonus features. The game features excellent graphics, voiceovers of the Jeopardy! game show hosts, and enhanced digital sound that make it more entertaining than some other slots. The symbols on the reels include 'Jeopardy!' logos and the many categories of rounds in the show, such as science, music, sports, animals and more. The other symbols in the game include the number 7, the double and triple Jeopardy symbols.
The bet amount for this game is $1 and the max bet is $5, at five coins per line. The highest payout in the game is a jackpot of 25,000 coins or $25,000, which is offered when you get the Double Jeopardy multiplier five times in a payline. The user interface of the game is very simple, which makes it easy to use. While the game does offer good rewards through its bonuses and jackpots, it is not linked to any progressives that pay big. The payout percentage for this game is 95%.
The online version of the game can be played at select IGT casinos on registration with the sites. Some of these sites would also allow you to play the game for fun money, to let you get an idea about it.
Jeopardy! has a number of interesting bonus features that reward the player generously. One of them is the Double Jeopardy 2X Wild feature, which replaces all other symbols on the reels and multiplies your winnings by 2. This feature is triggered if you get at least three of the wild symbols. The WILD is also the highest paying symbol on the game.
The bonus symbol in the game is the Jeopardy Bonus, which is also the scatter and cannot be replaced by the WILD. If you get at least three of these bonus symbols on a payline, the multi-line Jeopardy bonus feature is triggered. This feature will take the players to a grid made up of 30 Jeopardy! screens, as seen in the television show. This is more like the game show and the player has to click on the Jeopardy! screens to reveal the bonus amount. Each screen has a reward behind it and the bonus feature comes to an end when the Final Jeopardy symbol is revealed.
At present, Jeopardy! slots game is being offered only at land based casinos and online casinos featuring IGT products. The mobile version of the game has not yet been released for iPad or Android slots players.
Jeopardy! is a television show that features a unique quiz competition where participants have to come up with the question using the cues presented by the host. The game was created in 1964 and was first aired on NBC in the same year. Created by Merv Griffin, Jeopardy! had Art Fleming and Alex Trebek as the hosts over different time periods. The original series ran from 1964 to 1975, and as hosted by Art Fleming. After a gap of 3 years, the game show was back as The All New Jeopardy! in 1978 and ended again in 1979.
The most viewed season of the game show began in October 1984, and was hosted by Alex Trebek, who continues to host the program to date. As of 2011, over 6,000 episodes of Jeopardy were aired on US television and the show has won a record 30 Daytime Emmy awards during its stint. Jeopardy also won a Peabody award and was ranked at number 2 in the list of Top 50 Game Shows by Game Show Network in 2006. TV Guide ranked the show at number 1 in its list of the 60 Greatest Game Shows ever in 2013.
The popularity of the game spread across the world, triggering regional adaptations of the show in severalÂ foreign countries. Jeopardy! is presently in its 30th season and continues to enjoy popularity across the nation, with Alex Trebek at his best. Trebek is expected to retire from the show sometime in mid-2016.
Alex Trebek holds records as one of the longest running game show hosts, next to Pat Sajak - host of Wheel of Fortune. He did come under scrutiny though during Jeopardy! kids week where Alex allegedly brought an 8th grader to tears for misspelling the word "emancipation" on the show.
