Where to play?
Jungle Explorer video slot ready to play at Novomatic Casinos has 20 paylines, 5 reels and offers a top non-progressive jackpot of 8,000 coins.
The theme of the slots is about an gutsy adventurer searching for lost treasure in a jungle teeming with all kinds of danger which reminds me a lot of Indiana Jones’ film Temple of Doom film. If you’re into games with high-octane adventurous themes this one ticks all the boxes.
The game mechanic of the slots introduces a Tumbling Reels feature where successive wins can be gained from every spin. It wields its magic during the free spins feature where a total of 30 free spins can be won with multiplier wins of up to 16x! During the free spins you can win as much as 1,000x your stake on a single spin. The slots can be played on mobile devices or PC desktops for real cash or for free.
Paying symbols that appear on the reels are cards from 10 to Ace, amulets, lady wearing a headdress, gold coins and the Jungle Explorer which is the wild. The wild symbol offers the biggest cash prize, 5 of them at the maximum wager pays a cool 200x your stake. The return to player (RTP) percentage of the game is 95.7% making it medium variance-it pays out on every 4th to 7th spin.
Jungle Explorer can be played from 40 pence up to £60 per spin. It comes with the standard customization options such as audio, reel speed, Max Bet, Line Bet and Auto Play. The latter feature is convenient because if you intend on playing the game for a long session it spins the reels automatically for you.
As mentioned previously, the wild symbol is the ‘Jungle Explorer’ it completes a winning payline when it substitutes the other symbols adjacent to it. The wild is also the symbol that offers the biggest payout so pay special attention to it.
The free spins mode is initiated by 3, 4 or 5 scatter icons, 15 free spins are awarded. Depending on the amount of scatters (3 or more) you’ve landed you can win anything from 2, 20 or 200x your stake.
The Tumbling Reels feature offers multiplier wins that start off with 2x up to 16x. It works like this. In the event of a winning free spin, the current symbols disappear and replaced by new ones which results in multiplier wins of 4x. If you win again the multiplier is doubled to 8x, hit another win it doubles up to 16x on every spin! The free spins feature can be re-triggered when another 3 scatters or more pitch awarding you an extra 15 free spins making it 30 in total.
Jungle Explorer is your typical high end video slot that appeals to both medium and high staked players. It’s not as graphically rich as the NetEnt slots but it focuses more on the functional side of things.
Potentially you can win a whopping 1,000x your stake on a single spin. The free spins along with the Tumbling Reels feature adds that extra oomph to the game. If you’re looking for a slots with a similar theme and bonus modes we recommend NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest.
