Aristocrat, a leading gaming software developer, has unveiled its new slot game titled Outback Jack which is based on adventures in Australia.

Aristocrat has pulled out all the stops to ensure that players receive a fun and competitive gambling environment with this game.
Clear Graphics in Outback Jack Slot makes for Hassle-Free Play
Slot games are a favorite among casino players as they are based on luck and do not require complicated strategies and playing techniques. Aristocrat is highly reputed for providing superior graphics and features in all of its slot games. Pokies are most enjoyed when the graphics and the audio do not overshadow the premise of the game itself. It can be quite distracting if there is an overload of animations.
There is no such worry in the new Outback Jack slot as it provides clear and clean graphics in a simple and earthy color scheme that allow players to concentrate on their performance. The background of the game is a stone wall bordered by wooden logs which mirrors the theme of the vastness and remoteness of the Australian outback.
Attractive Symbols Pay Tribute to Australia
The outback is a colloquial term used to refer to the arid land that falls outside the major urban areas in Australia. Aristocrat Group, which is based and enjoys an enviable market position in Australia, has designed the game with symbols and features that reflect its commitment to its home country.
The symbols in the game include boomerangs, kangaroos, koalas, Jeep and Outback Jack. The regular symbols include high value cards such as Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. Keeping with the simple theme of the game, the symbols have also been represented with clean graphics and color schemes.
No slot game can be popular or complete without a scatter symbol as it allows players to enhance their luck of earning a significant amount of money. In the Outback Jack slot, the scatter symbol is the Map of Australia which can appear in a scattered manner on any of the reels.
