“The deepest darkest jungle is filled with danger, yet great rewards for the brave” – so says the voice at the beginning of this brand new online slot from Ash Gaming. It’s called Heart Of The Jungle and it bears some suspicious similarities to the story of Tarzan so read on to find out what it’s all about.
Heart Of The Jungle is a five reel machine with fifty fixed paylines and if you watch the intro movie you will hear the female voice say that her life has been saved by the noble savage and that they are now travelling towards the heart of the jungle. You can see that jungle behind the reels.
There are plenty of jungly symbols including a parrot, a tiger, an elephant, a chimpanzee and our male and female characters. 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The Heart Of The Jungle logo is wild and there’s a shield scatter which appears on reels one, three and five. All symbols appear stacked on the reels which can make for some big wins – check out the video above. Stacked symbols across more than one reel will form a bigger picture as a celebration of your big win.
Jungle Trail Free Spins
Those shield scatter symbols are the key to the free spins and you need to land three anywhere on reels one, three and five to trigger this feature.
There are four different free spins choices but you can only access the further ones after triggering the bonus a certain number of times.
- From the 1st trigger: The Deep Jungle – 8 free spins +5x multiplier and Ultra Spin. The Ultra Spin is an extra final spin worth up to 25x the prize.
- From the 5th trigger: Crystal Falls – 10 free spins + up to 4 wild stacks on each spin.
- From the 10th trigger: The Golden Mountain – 15 free spins + wilds which stay on the reels and nudge up or down on each spin.
- From the 15th trigger: The Lost City Of Zantar – 25 free spins + a wild which shifts horizontally & increases the multiplier.
From the 20th, 25th, 30th and 35th triggers respectively, each spin mode will receive a payment boost; this increases the number of free spins and the overall RTP to the player.
Achievements are not so much of a bonus as an added, moderately interesting extra. Each time you complete one small thing (e.g. trigger one bonus game) you receive a notification and you can check what you’ve achieved by checking the paytable – they will be saved.
It’s nice to have a storyline to back up a slot, however thin the narrative. Here you must carry on playing until our jungle couple reach their final destination. There’s plenty to keep you interested before you make it there and the improving free spins feature is a nice addition. Even the achievements seem somehow addictive.
