Where to play?
Fans of Safari themed 3D slot machines will enjoy Jungle Games. Powered by Net Entertainment the game’s story line unfolds as the animals play sports against each other. One can say it’s akin to an animal Olympics.
Against the backdrop of the reels is the African plain. Paying symbols during the main game are the lion, the rhinoceros, monkey weightlifter, giraffe, hippo, boxing gloves, whistle, basket ball, weights, towel with sunglasses and table tennis bat. At the maximum bet per spin 5 lion icons pays out 1,000 coins. I must say the game’s quite funny. Have you ever seen a monkey lifting weights?
The current return to player (RTP) payout ratio of Jungles Games 3D slots is 96% and the total jackpot is 200,000 coins. The game has 20 bet lines and 5 reels. To me it’s more like a classic one-armed bandit game than a high-resolution slots.
The graphics and animations are okay but it’s the audio of the game that’s worth mentioning. You can hear the various animal sounds even the roar of the lion across the reels. I guess this makes an otherwise simple game more authentic. Then again it might irritate some players since it can become monotonous after extensive game play. The usual wilds, free spins, scatters and a pick me feature makes an otherwise lackluster game a bit more interesting.
With 20 lines and 4 bet levels the coin range is 0.02 up to 0.5. The average bet per spin starts off with $0.4 up to $40. I think the minimum bet per spin is a bit steep.
The scatter symbol is the gold medallion. When 3 or more of them appear on an active payline the free spins bonus game is triggered. But, there’s a nice twist. After 50 spins I finally triggered the free spins when I land 3 scatter icons. Here I had to pick between 3 coin options and the free spins. I chose the former and manage a win of $50.
I forfeited the free spins because I wanted to see what the pick me feature has to offer. This is not a bad option but in hindsight I should have gone for the free spins instead. Reason being all free spins wins have a multiplier of 1x to 5x attached to it.
The wild symbol is the golden trophy. When it appears on an active payline it substitutes all the other symbols on the reels except the scatters. All wins are doubled. Expect regular payouts during the base game but they’re a bit small to my liking. I managed to unlock the free spins bonus round after 35 spins. Based on my playing experience all I can say is it requires some patience to trigger the bonus game (free spins). At lower bet levels payouts could have been better.
In my opinion NetEnt’s Jungle Games is an average video slots. It does feature all the bells and whistles but in terms of payouts it leaves a lot to be desired. Also, the minimum bet per spin at the lowest coin bet level is $0.4 which might be a bit too much for low rollers.
