Agent Jane Blonde is a 2013 Microgaming title that focuses on the female version of James Bond, with 11 symbols that depict various things from the life of a female supersecret agent. The game is actually a skin of the engine that runs Thunderstruck and many other Microgaming slots. Many players who enjoy classic slots are huge fans of this particular slot game.
There are 9 paylines in Agent Jane Blonde and the minimum bet is $0.01 per line, and this is also the minimum bet for one spin, and the minimum to cover all paylines is $0.09, which means players on a minimal budget will be able to play Agent Jane Blonde comfortably. Maximum bet per spin is $90.
If you land three, four or five Scatters on your reels you’ll get 15 free spins during which all wins will be tripled. 15 free spins can be re-triggered during feature. It might take many spins to reach this bonus game, and even when you do, the winnings won’t be that spectacular. You’ll get maybe 40x or 50x your bet at most. There is no jackpot either, so this is all you can hope for in Agent Jane Blonde. During test play, we ended up winning 2970 coins on a 90-coin bet, which is almost 60x. Since it took almost 200 spins to actually trigger the free spins feature, and it’s the only bonus feature in this game, it doesn’t feel like it’s worth the wait.
There are 11 symbols in the game and all have artwork, which means Microgaming avoided adding cards such as Kings and Aces, and this is a much better way to do things. Effectively, symbols are doubled as you got pairs of symbols that have the same payout, e.g. Gun and Lipstick both pay 125 coins for five-of-a-kind. However, with only 9 paylines and 11 symbols plus Wild and Scatter, it means wins are rare. Agent Jane is a Wild symbol and it doubles all wins, and it also is the best-paying symbol with 10,000 coins for five-of-a-kind, which is 13x more than the next best symbol.
The game has a Gamble feature, in which you can choose Red or Black to double your winnings, and can also choose a card suit, which is a 25% chance to quadruple your winnings. It’s always nice to have this in a slot game as it has the potential to turn worthless small wins into medium ones. Of course, it isn’t recommended to use the Gamble feature on any decent-sized win as by doing that you’d be hurting your mathematical chances to win money on this slot game.
The game has medium to high variance, same as other Thunderstruck clones, and the game features a wide range of big wins as opposed to just one or two, so it can be played with a small budget and you can still end up winning a nice sum. The game won’t set you back too much while you wait for the free spins, even if you will be waiting for a long time. Return to player (RTP) of Agent Jane Blonde is 96.10% which isn’t too much but isn’t poor either, especially for a classic slot that has this retro style of slot gameplay.
Agent Jane Blonde is one of those slots which all online casinos worth their salt must have, as players often turn to this one – even if Agent Jane Blond (without the ‘e’) would have been a much better title!
