There’s plenty to discover in any jungle I guess. Hopefully it won’t be some Z-list celebrities eating unsavoury dishes and rowing about everything under the sun. In this game from Novomatic you’ll be hunting down big cash wins thanks to the special features that are included in this entertaining slot.
Before the game can begin you need to fill in the Reality Check Interval. This responsible gambling tool asks you to set a time after which the game will be suspended. You are then shown how you are getting on financially and offered the chance to either quit the game or continue playing. It’s an important tool and best for you to set a time limit of around 15 minutes so you can be constantly updated on your progress.
The backdrop to this slot shows us the jungle and to the right in front of the reels we see the jungle explorer taking a good look at what’s happening. This is one of the Novomatic slot games that doesn’t have the control buttons underneath the reels. All that’s in that position are details of your last win, how much is in your account balance and the total amount being wagered on the next spin of the reels. As for the control buttons, there’s the spin button to the right of the reels and the menu above. The menu allows you to set your stake, how many pay-lines to play, to add extra credit and mute the soundtrack if it gets too much for you.
This slot has a total of five pay-lines with three rows of attractive looking symbols and a total of 20 pay-lines. Those 20 are a fixed amount so your only decision is how much to wager on each spin of the reels. Make sure you gamble an amount you can afford to live without. The minimum cost of playing is 0.40 and the maximum 100 so high rollers can have some fun playing ‘Jungle Explorer.’
Symbols in this game are a bit of a mixed bunch. There’s a woman in an attractive headdress, coins, and amulets as well as the ten to Ace playing card symbols. It’s the jungle explorer himself who is the wild symbol in this slot, though I imagine there are a fair few other things wilder than him out there. He can substitute for other symbols in the game to hopefully deliver you plenty of winning combinations It can also give you a prize of 200x if five of the wild symbols appear on a pay-line. This wild can do a lot of things but it can’t replace the scatter symbol as that would aid you in triggering the bonus game.
The Tumbling Reels feature is always one that can bring about a fair few wins. When a winning combination comes along, the symbols that created the win, suddenly disappear. The symbols above them fall into their place and the reels are re-evaluated. If any new winning combinations have been formed, then it’s pay-out time. Not just that, the tumbling starts all over again and continues until you don’t get a winning combination.
Three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin is all you need to trigger the free spins round. That wins you a total of 15 free spins and the chances of getting big wins during those spins are increased by the fact all wins you get will be doubled. The tumbling reels feature is a part of this but each time the reels tumble the bonus multiplier is doubled all the way up to 16x before returning to 2x when no win comes along. Even better you can re-trigger the free spins if those scatters come visiting in triplicate again, so this can all be very lucrative.
There’s a lot going on in this slot game so it’s even more important for you to know as much as possible about what you can expect from it. Go to the menu which is accessed by pressing the button above the spinner. Then access the paytable and that has lots of information about the winning combinations, tumbling reels and free spins round.
After having some fun playing this game, why not try out these similar slot games? There’s the Merkur release ‘Tahiti Feeling’ which is also of a medium to high variance, has a free spins round. If you want to play another slot that has an increasing multiplier, try out the Microgaming slot ‘Reel Baron’ that can see the multiplier rising up to 10x if your luck is in.
A great game from Novomatic with plenty of chances to get some big wins. It has a good theme that is well adhered to. The tumbling reels always provide some wins and it’s much better than having the usual gamble feature. The free spins can be very lucrative if managing to re-trigger them and get the increased multiplier so there are plenty of reasons to be playing this game.
