Among Rudyard Kipling’s many well-known works is The Jungle Book, a collection of stories with the ‘man-cub’ Mowgli as the narrative link; Blueprint Gaming have developed an online slot around these tales and it’s called Jungle Jackpots: Mowgli’s Wild Adventure – it’s got loads of bonus features and they’re all explained below.
Jungle Jackpots is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; those reels spin on a wooden frame accessorised with Kaa the python. Various jungle adornments provide the containers for the buttons and other information.
There are four theme-relates symbols including the Jungle Jackpot logo, a bowl of fruit, some native huts and a pair of burning torches; lower values are the standard 10, J, Q, K and A.
A large footprint is the wild symbol and it will substitute for all others except the Baloo bonus/scatter icon.
Mowgli’s Wild Adventure
This is a randomly occurring feature signified by a page turning on the reels; you will now receive one four mini-bonuses (Kaa Locking Wilds, Hathi’s Expanding Wilds, Monkey Mischief and Mowgli Wilds) which all payout cash of various amounts.
Baloo’s Bonus Game
This is triggered by landing two of the bonus/scatter symbols plus one of the four feature icons on the reels; initially you will get to select that feature or gamble on a higher paying one. The four features are listed below from lowest potential value to highest:
- Cash Bonus – awards a mystery prize up to 500x the total bet.
- Cash Trail – progress along a path by collecting the green ‘Continue’ apples from the tree; a red one ends the round. Reach the end for a payout of 1000x the total bet.
- Bagheera Free Spins – awards five free spins with Bagheera occupying reel three as a wild icon; forming a winning combo will award a free spin with those symbols locked in place – more matching symbols will lock and this process continue until there are no more wins at which point the payout is made.
- Baloo’s Colossal Spins – awards free spins with Baloo as a colossal wild symbol covering the centre three reels.
Jungle Jackpots is good fun to play and it squeezes in lots of content from the original stories; there’s a jungly soundtrack which suits the gameplay well so this is well worth tracking down.
