Introduction to the game
‘Jumanji’ was released in June 2018 by the award-winning and innovative software developer NetEnt. This company have become a leading provider in the industry and are trusted by casino operators worldwide. This is because every game they release is premium with the highest possible gaming standards and latest technology. They also offer flexible gaming solutions which are available on all platforms. It’s no secret that NetEnt has released some of the most popular and played slot games in the world. Titles include ‘Starburst’, ‘Mega Fortune’, ‘Gonzo’s Quest’, ‘Divine Fortune’, ‘Narcos’, ‘Boom Brothers’, ‘Guns N’Roses’ and many more.
The theme of ‘Jumanji’ is of course inspired by the well-known movie, which was directed by John Johnston and released in 1995. But this slot game uses the more modern storyline of the recently released adaptation: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017). This movie tells the story of four high-school teenagers that are forced to clean a storage room instead of detention. They discover an old video game that they wish they had never opened. After selecting avatars, they are transported into a jungle full of extreme dangers. The jungle presents many challenges that could mean life or death. They must fight to survive and can only escape the game if it is completed. In a bid to return to the real world they work together to tackle some of the most terrifying creatures and scenarios.
This game welcomes you to the tropical jungle! But it’s not its not the paradise that you’d imagine. You can choose out of four characters. Each will have a special set of skills. Your mission is to navigate through the jungle and find the treasure chest which will help you escape. It’s an adrenaline-inducing game so is only for the adventurous thrill-seekers. You will encounter many jungle-based hazards along the way. But the bonus feature and payouts will be highly rewarding.
‘Jumanji’ features 5 reels, 3 rows and 36 paylines. The game is playable on all devices from €0.10 to €100. It has an above-average RTP of 96.33% and a low-medium volatality. ‘Jumanji’ is an action-packed slot with 4 randomly triggers features that can appear in the game. These include Sticky Vines, Monsoon Wilds, Wild Stampede and Free Spin Rounds. And you have a chance to win up to 504x your inital stake!
The Sticky Vine feature is essentially a Respin feature. If you activate this feature then all winning combinations will stick to the reels and any Wilds. All of the other reels will respin and make room for any other winning combinations. The alligator will be your Monsoon Wild. If you see the Wild it will either completely cover one or two reels. The Monkey Meyhem feature will shuffle all of the reels randomly and create a guaranteed win. Sounds good, right? And finally, the Wild Stampede is perhaps the most rewarding reward. Rhinos will stampede across the screen and bring you into a Bonus Game. This game will give you the option to win in between 4-9 wilds. You will need to dodge as many rhinos as possible. For every rhino, you dodge you will earn one Wild. It won’t be easy! But this is where the fun begins.
