When you see the name Jungle Jim El Dorado on a video slot game, you instantly know that the theme is about gold and you cannot resist the temptation to see what it has to offer.
This was the case with us when we first saw the teaser video about this slot but didn’t have any strong information of what this slot has to offer. From the few details we saw the animations and visual effects were on a high level, with a great animation for the game hero Jungle Jim.
The game play is basically oriented on you helping Jim find his way through the jungle by using some high tech equipment and find the city of gold. Base play is very interesting thanks to the great combination of animations, theme, symbols and a daring background music, so you can play very long sessions without getting bored and losing interest.
The developer behind Jungle Jim El Dorado is none other than Microgaming Software. This is one of the biggest software providers in the world, with a great collection of video slot games and top of the line casino operators.
Since the competition in the online gambling industry is very fierce each provider aims to create the best video slot game there is. Many players will like a set of particular games and play them on a regular basis so if a slot game is very popular, other providers will try to copy the overall design.
This is the case with Jungle Jim El Dorado who is basically an almost identical clone game of the mega popular Gonzos Quest from Net Entertainment. Gonzo was one of their first and best new 3D slot games with which NetEnt got back on the gambling market through the front door, so it is understandable why many providers copy or even improve the NetEnt slots.
How to Play
Unlike the original 20 pay line design in Gonzos Quest, for Jungle Jim El Dorado, Microgaming decided to add an extra 5 pay lines on the 3 x 5 grid.
The pay line number is fixed so the corresponding bet per spin starts with $0.25 and can go up to $25 per spin. As in most Microgaming slots the only options left after the bet size is placed, are the Spin and Auto Spin Buttons, followed by the classic Gamble option after each winning spin.
Play For Real Money Jungle Jim El Dorado Slot With These Bonuses:
Jungle Jim El Dorado has only one classic free spins bonus feature, triggered by landing 3 scatter symbols on the first 3 reels on an active pay line. But even without a triggered bonus round base play wins can be big thanks to the Rolling Reels design and consecutive win multipliers implemented.
This is another feature that is borrowed by Gonzos Quest with each consecutive winning spin receiving an extra multiplier from x1, x2, x3, x4 to x5. This design is responsible for the big payout potential, both in base play and in the bonus round, and for the long playtime achieved from a smaller number of paid spins.
The free spins bonus awards 10 free spins, which can be retriggered with all win multipliers increased by x3. So in the free spins bonus the multipliers go x3, x6, x9, x12 to x15.
The maximum possible payout on Jungle Jim El Dorado is set at 3,680 x total bet or $92,000 if playing on the maximum bet per spin of $25. This high payout ratio is due to the high x15 multiplier in the bonus round and the decent symbols payout attached.
Gonzos Quest is one of the most played games from Net Entertainment so we are certain Jungle Jim El Dorado will achieve a great level of popularity across Microgaming casinos.
It will certainly be a great addition to the Microgaming video slots collecting, allowing hard core Microgaming players to enjoy another top video slot game.
The game variance should be medium to high and it will be interesting to see how the extra 5 pay lines and the extra x4 level multiplier will affect the overall payouts. In theory these details should bring more potential to the payouts as the chances for more consecutive winning spins are bigger, but we will have to test this theory in real play.
