Jungle Jim El Dorado VS Gonzos Quest!
A few days ago Microgaming announced another new video slot game that will be released over their games network in the upcoming months. The short teaser video doesn’t offer much info on the game design and bonus features and is focused on the main hero Jungle Jim and the beginning of his quest to find the hidden golden city.
From what we saw in the video we can say that the animation level used is very high and is common to the video slot games coming from Microgaming. What was really interesting for us in the video description was the mentioned Rolling Reels design, golden Multiplier Trail feature and maximum x5 or x15 multiplier in base play or in the bonus round.
These facts are incredibly similar to an old friend of ours from Net Entertainment by the name of Gonzo. True enough after some more thorough research we confirmed our thoughts that Jungle Jim El Dorado is actually a clone game of Gonzos Quest. For many experienced gamblers this is very intriguing news which is another sign that the clash of the titans in the online gambling industry continues.
For newbie players well mention a few quick facts about the past history of these two companies. Microgaming was the top software provider in the world who basically invented online casinos and had the best video slot games in the industry.
Net Entertainment made a huge comeback on the gambling scene by launching their new video slot games collection and introducing many novelties like under 1 hour withdrawal payouts, free spins with no wager attached and full mobile support.
Gonzos Quest was and still is one of their top and most popular slot games attracting a very big number of daily regular players. Microgaming doesn’t have any similar game like Gonzo, so Jungle Jim El Dorado is an attempt to regain some of the lost players in Microgaming casinos.
What We love
We love the fact that Microgaming decided to use a great slot like Gonzos Quest to create a slot of their own, but we like even more the few crucial changes they decided to make in Jungle Jim El Dorado.
For example the number of pay lines is increased to 25 which is something many players wanted to see on the reels of Gonzo. Since multipliers are added and increased for consecutive wins on the reels the extra 5 pay lines are more than welcomed to help.
Microgaming also decided to add an extra multiplier level, which will basically prolong reaching the maximum multiplier level by one winning spin, but also has a big multiplier value.
What we Do not Like
We’ll have to wait for Jungle Jim El Dorado to go live in the following months, but from what we saw and know so far, it seems like a great game to play.
We are great fans of Gonzos Quest so since Jungle Jim El Dorado follows the same overall design we will definitely give him a chance to prove his worthiness to us. The facts speak in his favor as the free spins feature is almost identical and with a bigger number of pay lines.
We can’t wait to see how this improved design will transfer to the overall game play and payouts, but the 3,680 x total bet maximum payout definitely caught our attention from the start.
