Push Gaming

Push Gaming is a London based studio providing HTML5 slots. With over 25 games in their portfolio they have become a force to be recon with on the iGaming market. Much of their recent success is from games such as Fat Rabbit, Jammin’ Jars and Tiki Tumble. Push Gaming was formed 2010 by James Marshall and Winston Lee with the goal on taking land based games to the online market. They released their first licensed slot game 2012 and formed partnerships with Playtech, Microgaming and OpenBet platforms the same year. In 2013 they started to change direction by creating HTML5 games as we know them today. Golden Farm was the first HTML5 game that reached the market in 2015. Today we can play Push Gaming games on many different casinos and the brand have become recognizable and attractive with their well designed and high potential games.

Jammin' Jars

Jammin’ Jars was launched in September this year and has been a groovy success ever since. It’s a colorful and happy game that makes you want to sway your hips. There’s definitely a lot to keep the eye on with jars, fruits, rainbows and multipliers on the board. The statistical RTP in the game is 96.8% and the variance is high in this hot slot. The minimum stake is €0.20 a spin, and the maximum is €100.

How it works

Jammin’ Jars is a grid game with different fruits as symbols - strawberry’s paying the most. The layout is 8x8 and you win by connecting a cluster of at least 5 of the same fruits. All symbols connecting in the win gets removed from the grid and cascading new symbols takes their place until you don’t get anymore wins. Additionally you have dancing rainbow colored jars that posts as wilds and scatters. To get the free spins bonus round you need 3 of the jars anywhere on the board. For every win with the wilds, they add up one more multiplier to the specific jar. You can get a maximum of 4 jars on the board. There is another feature that can happen during a spin. A rainbow appears, sweeps across the grid and drops a bigger fruit or several big fruits over the board. This feature can also happen in the bonus round.

The controversy

It started with a post from a member called jk777 on CasinoMeister, the largest online casino forum of the internet. He posted two links to clips of two different casino streamers getting a big win in Jammin’ Jars. The controversy here was that the streamers got the exact same hit. We’ve went over the slots mechanics above. Whenever you connect with 5 or more fruits the symbols are removed from the grid and new fruits is cascading down the board. The weird part about these two hits is that the board was identical for the two different streamers. They got identical hits for every new cascade of symbols. The forum members found this to be mysterious and shady. The conversation went on for a while and even the creator Push Gaming caught the eye of this and joined. The official response from the Studio that created Jammin’ Jars was an explanation of how the slot works. To sum up their response they explained that every spin is a random pick from an extensive pool of predetermined results. Meaning it is in fact possible for two players to hit the exact same hit with the same cascading symbols. Since that win was just drawn out of the pool with possible results. The pool is said to hold more than 1.3M results.

While this answer was widely as accepted but many think this kind of programming with the result being drawn before the graphics showcase the win is misleading. The true potential was also questioned because of this. Push Gaming did answer and confirmed 20,000x the stake is the max win in the slot. Despite this controversy Jammin’ Jars has seen great success and is a popular pick on many casinos.

Fat Rabbit - another success

Fat rabbit is another slot from Push Gaming that has been well received on the market. This was released in the end of march this year and features a 5x5 grid with 50 paylines. In the base game you can get a harvest feature where a tractor drives over the screen and drops a minimum of 3 wilds on the board. When a carrot appears on reel one you get a bonus feature if one or more carrots lands on the following reels. You cannot get the rabbit while in the harvest feature. While in the bonus round you want more carrots to feed the rabbit and make him fat. Fill up the meter with carrots to move up a level. If you manage to fill it up on all 4 levels you will get a rabbit so thick it will cover the whole grid with wilds paying a 1000x every spin. Much like Jammin’ Jars this is a popular slot on most casinos.

To sum up

To sum up Push Gaming have really succeeded with their recent releases despite some controversy. They create high variance games that have high potential with appealing graphics. Every new game seem to have a innovative new feature that we haven't seen before. This is a winning concept in our opinion. We see a bright future for the fast growing company and hope for many more exciting games in the future.
