Unexplored jungles in remote parts of the world make ideal themes for online slot machines and we now have the chance to visit one more such area in the shape of Jungle Explorer, a release from Novomatic which features the same travel-worn adventurer from Book of Ra. It comes with tumbling reels, and a free spins round so find out how it all works below.
Jungle Explorer is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; those reels spin within a delicate bamboo frame which sits against a verdant backdrop of trees, plants and a large waterfall on the right hand side.
There are three high value symbols which comprise the girl with the golden tiara, a blue/green amulet and a pile of gold coins; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The explorer himself is wild and he will replace all others in a winning combo except for the golden monkey shrine scatter symbol.
Jungle Explorer uses the ‘tumbling reels’ feature which means that each time there’s a winning combo, those symbols involved will disappear and be replaced by more falling in from above; those new symbols can form their own combos and this process continues until there are no more wins.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the golden monkey shrine scatter icons anywhere in view for which you will receive 15 free spins.
The tumbling reels feature is still active during the spins but with each successive win the multiplier will increase – 2x, 4x, 8x and finally 16x. If it reaches 16x then all future wins will pay at that level, otherwise the multiplier will drop back to 2x.
Three or more scatters will retrigger this round.
Any win can be gambled by clicking the playing card button which appears to the left of the reels; you can now try and double your winnings repeatedly by working your way up a ladder but beware – a wrong click will lose everything.
Jungle Explorer is a little more feature-packed than other Novomatic slots and that’s always welcome; we like the tumbling reels and the enhanced free spins round and would certainly recommend this game – it comes with an RTP of 94.00%.
