Jungle Jim Slot
Jungle Jim is a recent slot from Microgaming with 25 paylines and it was released in September 2016. It takes you deep down to the jungle in search of Eldorado. This legendary city of gold is a myth that has changed its form over time from the mysterious golden man to the golden city. Jim with his high-tech gadgets is confident in finding valuable treasures! You can expect to see Rolling Reels™with multiple winning opportunities. The highest potential win is 3680 times your stake. This is a medium variance slot.
This slot has 5 reels and 25 paylines. The RTP is 95.98% and it’s playable on desktop, tablet and mobile. There is no option to have the downloadable version. The minimum bet is 0.25 and the maximum is 25. There are two main features: The Rolling Reels™and the Free Spins Feature. Microgaming have used their Rolling Reels™ feature in other slots too, but generally the multipliers only appear in the Free Spins Feature and not the base game.
Bonus features in Jungle Jim
There are two bonus features that increase the winning chances as soon as you get into the bonus rounds. The Rolling Reels feature gives a chance to win over and over again. After a lucky win, the winning symbols explode on your screen and a new set of symbols will drop down. Then you have another chance to win. Furthermore, every win increases the multiplier, too. The highest one is a 5X multiplier.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when you get 3 scatters anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously. You will get 10 free spins as a prize. However, if you get 3 scatter in the bonus round, you will get 10 more Free Spins, so all together there is a chance for 20 Free Spins. A nice extra in this slot is the increasing multiplier in the Free Spins rounds. First, the wins have a multiplier of 3X and then it increases to 6X, 9X, 12X and 15X. This sounds very awesome, if you happen to have the luck to get that far!
Theme and graphics
The theme is entertaining and the narrative is quite fine for a basic online slot. Jungle Jim might not be the most impressive slot from Microgaming but it absolutely meets the standards of the current modern online slots. The sounds are good and the symbols well-designed. The amusing symbols include topazes, emeralds, sapphires, rubies, treasure chests, statues, flutes and snake sceptres. The Jim himself is a confident looking adventurer fitting the theme as you could expect.
Jungle Jim is all in all a fairly decent slot compared to the current level of slots. This might remind you of the Gonzo’s Quest by NetEnt and in comparison to that, you need to go through one more step, get one more consecutive win, in order to get to the highest multiplier. However, the 5X multiplier is something that doesn’t exist in every slot, not to mention the 15X multiplier that you can get in the Free Spins Feature. This slot gives many smaller wins and thus, gives you the feeling of the chance to win. However, to get the 15X multiplier you might need to have your lucky day. To sum up, Jungle Jim is a fine slot with an entertaining theme.
