Detailed Jungle Jim Review
We do like it when Microgaming design one of their video slots with a completely unique set of reel symbols that fit the theme of the slot. As that ensures that you are not going to see some of the often used and rather non-descript much lower paying playing card reel symbols spinning in.
Not only does their 15 optional payline Jungle Jim slot come with its own set of unique and fully themed reel symbols but it also awards a rather unique bonus game too, more details of that bonus game can be found in the following section of this review by the way!
The base game jackpot that every single Jungle Jim slot player will be hoping to win is worth 4,000 coins, that is however when you play just one coin per line per spin. As this slot lets you play more than one coin on each of the 5 paylines you activate you could win a much higher valued jackpot when for example playing it for max bet spins.
Bonus Games, Bonus Features and Special Reel Symbols
The original Jungle Jim slot which does now have a new sister or should we say brother slot game is a rather basic video slot. However, it does offer you the chance of triggering a two stage bonus game which could trigger on any base game spin.
However, it is a set of bonus symbols and not scatters that trigger that bonus game, so you do need to be aware that you will have to see spinning in on any activated payline three or more of the bonus symbols from left to right on adjoining reels before that bonus game is triggered.
When it has been triggered then you are faced with an initial bonus game screen on which there are five Alligators, you have to click onto one of them and by doing so a set of free spins will then be revealed.
Those free spins which come with x5 multipliers will then start to play off, however you will not be able to re-trigger them during the free spins feature game. There are also a set of standard scatter symbols that you can spin in and those award just a cash payout which will be a multiple of your base game stake amount when you get three, four or all five of those scatter symbols spinning into view.
Our Opinion of the Jungle Jim Slot
The pick and win initial bonus game that you have to play off when playing the Jungle Jim slot to determine the value of the multiplier and the number of free spins you will then get to play off drove us mad when playing this slot!
Being a random picking game then you will need to always be aware that you may end up selecting time and time again the lowest number of spins and the lowest valued multiplier, which can drive you insane if the bonus game took an age to trigger!
However, there is always the chance that you could repeatedly trigger the free spins bonus game with some luck in playing and there is also the chance you may get the highest valued multiplier and the highest number of free spins too when playing off that picking game.
But you will need everything to fall into place when playing the Jungle Jim slot to walk away with its much higher potential winning payouts. Also be aware there is something of a much more exciting additional game in the Jungle Jim series that Microgaming have recently launched, so do checkout the Jungle Jim El Dorado slot when you can!
