Jungle Jim Slot – Microgaming

32Red Casino has today added a new online slot released from Microgaming to their casino titled Jungle Jim – El Dorado, seasoned players will instantly recognise that this slot is very similar in design and mechanics to the NetEnt classic Gonzo’s Quest.

Jungle Jim features an intrepid explorer in search of riches, to the left of the reels you will see Jungle Jim react to your wins as you play this slot and celebrating your wins with a  thumbs up, the slot uses a regular 5×3 reel layout and comes with 25 fixed paylines. The main mechanic of this slot machine is a “Tumbling Reels effect” along with rising multipliers if the wins keep coming, with even bigger multipliers on offer during the free spins bonus round.

Jungle Jim Base Gameplay

In the base game when wins are created on the reels these winning symbols are removed from the reels and the remaining symbols tumble down with new symbols appearing at the top of the reels, if any new wins are created then this process continues. With every new win created a multiplier value also rises on each win up to a maximum of 5x in the base game (1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x).

The main bonus round has even bigger Multipliers values on offer, starting at 3x this can then rise as up to a massive 15x multiplier, and with some very big 5 of a kind pays for the top symbols there is certainly some huge wins lurking on this slot.

For players who are not familiar with Gonzo’s Quest or the “Tumbling Reel effect” then it’s worth checking out the promotional video below to see just how it works.

Jungle Jim Slot – Bonus Round

The main bonus round is where things really heat up, once triggered by landing 3 of the special scatter symbols on reels 1,2,3 this will grant the player with an initial 10 Free Spins, this can also be re-triggered during the bonus round.

The same tumbling reels mechanic is present during the bonus round but the biggest change is the value of the multipliers which starts at 3x, and on successive wins will rise to 6x, 9x, 12x and finally 15x.

Given that the highest paying 5 of a kind symbol pays 120x stake, landing this with a 15x multiplier is going to lead to a huge win (1800x for 1 line hit), but just like Gonzo’s Queest expect these huge wins to be very rare!

Overall Opinions on Jungle Jim Slot

If we hadn’t ever played Gonzo’s Quest then our opinions would be very favourable, there’s a great theme, graphics, animations and overall solid gameplay, however, whilst this is not a direct clone of Gonzo’s Quest it is obvious that this slot is very heavily “inspired” by the classic.

For seasoned players, Jungle Jim- El Dorado won’t offer anything new, but for new players, you should probably enjoy the overall gameplay provided by this slot, is it better than the classic Gonzo’s Quest? we’ll leave that up to you to decide after playing it!
