Are sequels better than originals? With a huge top win of 50,000x your bet, this Jammin’ Jars 2 slot certainly cranks up the volume and the wins.
If you haven’t already, it’s worth taking a minute to read the original Jammin Jars slot review, because you can’t know what you’ve got unless you know where you’ve been.
As a fan of the original, it’s hard not to compare, but at least we can’t deny that the graphics, sounds, and animations have been improved in every way.
The Jammin’ Jars 2 mobile slot is an 8×8 grid slot with cluster pays where 5 or more symbols touching create a win, and then explode, giving you tumbling reels that could trigger multiple wins in a row. And that’s just a sliver of what you get here.
So what’s the same, what’s different?
Jammin’ Jars 2 is an 8×8 grid slot with wild that walk if they are part of a win or on an avalanche, increasing by 1 multiplier each time its part of a win. 3 wilds will trigger the free spins bonus with 3 walking wilds that stay sticky through the bonus.
So far, so similar to the first game. But as you look a little closer, you’ll notice that there are some odd bits. Like how you get cash value symbols, and if 5 or more form a cluster, you’ll get an instant cash prize of whatever is on the coins.
And, to add to the excitement, every once in a while, massive fruit symbols will blast onto the screen, giving you big clusters of wins, adding a very interesting excitement to your Jammin’ Jars 2 slot spins.
And we don’t mean that in a metaphorical way, where the more you play the more you get used to it. We mean that in a literal way, in that the more you play, the more Gold Vinyl discs you collect, the higher the levels you go.
The levels can trigger a special Giga Jar feature which drops huge wilds and huge cash symbols on the reels. And that’s how you win 50,000x your bet, with enough Giga symbols that give you tons of instant cash wins… or huge multipliers on the walking wilds.
But you hardly ever see this feature, and honestly, if you even get close to 20,000x your bet from the original, you’ll walk away happy. This is helped by the fact that as you level up, the RTP of this game increases, from 96.10% up to 96.60% and upwards.
The Jammin Jars 2 slot online can be frustrating, but it’s fun to play and makes an excellent grid slot game.

Cluster Pays and Avalanching Wins: You get a win when 5 more matching symbols are touching vertically or horizontally. Winning symbols are then removed and more symbols will drop from above to fill in the gaps, creating an avalanche of multiple wins.
Wild Jar Symbols and Multipliers: The Wild Jam Jar is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols. When it is part of a win, the wild symbol will then randomly move to an adjacent vacant position. When an avalanching win occurs, it doesn't disappear.
Every time a wild is part of a win in this Jammin' Jars 2 slot game, the multiplier increases by 1x. The wild is also a scatter and 3 or more will trigger the free spins.
Instant Prize Symbol: There are coin symbols or instant prize symbols. When you get 5 ore more land in a cluster, you'll get the total number of instant prizes in the symbols - these can range from 3 to 50 coins.
Fruit Blast Feature: The Fruit Blast Feature is randomly triggered after any collapse or cascade. Here you'll get one or more Giant Fruit Symbols splat on the reels, and that will give you a cluster of the same type of symbols.
Free spin feature: When 3 or more wild Jar Symbols land anywhere, you'll trigger 6 free spins. The 3 wild symbols move around on each spin, don't disappear per avalanche, and the multiplier increases as per the base game, without resetting on a non-win.
Gold Vinyls and Giga Jar Feature: If a gold vinyl lands anywhere in the base game, the Gold Vinyl travels to the Giga jar and is collected. When the Giga jar has reached the max level, the Giga Jar Feature triggers. Here, existing symbols will fall off the board, including any wild jar symbol.
The Giga Jar will throw 3 to 4 wild jar symbols onto the board randomly. The Giga Jar will enter onto the board as a 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4 instant prize symbol block.
You'll have 8 spins, each symbol position will spin through to land instant prize symbols. When an instant prize symbol lands, there is a chance that it will give an extra 1 or 2 spins.
So the more you play, the higher the RTP on this Jammin' Jars 2 mobile slot.
The Jammin' Jars 2 slot does everything it promised to do, which is to gives you more than the original. Is it better? Personally, we don't think so. In fact, it might be a little too much.
But that said, the top win here is a huge 50,000x your bet and that's hard to walk away from and why we gave this slot review a very well deserved 4 stars.
With mega symbols, two types of free spins, and instant win symbols, you have plenty to enjoy. But at the end of the day, the pure excitement is still in those walking wilds with multipliers.
Go give it a try for yourself and see if it lives up to expectations like many of the other Push Gaming slots.
