Jungle Games sounds like a children’s TV show you’d find in the UK, and while the name may not be the most creative in the world, thankfully, this slot from Net Entertainment offers more than just cheesy after-school viewing pleasure.
In fact, in one of Net Entertainment’s most unique designs (far more fitting with a Microgaming title), Jungle Games is a game that you wouldn’t initially think was produced by Net Entertainment – well, until you see the classic free-spins, bonus-round, and gameplay that Net Entertainment have taught us all to love.
Joking aside, the reason Jungle Games looks somewhat “off”, is due to the fact is uses a unique transparent reel set, over a High-definition background (the Jungle), and, set somewhere in Africa, there are a few more inconsistencies to point out. First, you’ll notice that the background is designed around a running track; now I don’t know how many Safari Trips you’ve been on, where a running track has been the main focal point… but this is the stark reality in Jungle Games.
The game itself offers 20 paylines, 5 reels, and 3 rows, and the good news, is that the pay lines are NOT fixed; this means you can customize your gaming experience and choose how many you want to play. While it’s generally not recommended to drift away from the maximum lines, it can be advantageous for players who have a few pence still attached to a bonus they want to get rid of.
Jungle Games is also available to enjoy on mobile devices, thanks to Net Entertainment’s commitment to building all their new games (as well as re-vamping their old games) to HTML5 technology, which ensures Flash – a great security risk – is no longer needed in order to run the games. Simply open up the game from your phone or tablet, position your device in landscape mobile devices, and you’ll instantly be able to adjust your stake settings, change the game-settings, and begin spinning those reels.
Jungle Games is all about the scatter symbols – and unlike most Net Entertainment games, there’s just one set of scatter symbols for two bonuses. Land three, four, or five of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels (depicted by a Gold Medal), and you’ll get to choose one of the following bonuses:
Bonus Win – If you opt to go for the bonus win (most players don’t), you’ll get to select one of the scatter symbols, which then awards a random cash prize.
Free Spins – Pick the free-spins, and again, you’ll pick one of the scatter symbols. This time, however, you won’t be awarded a coin-win, instead, revealing a number of free-spins, and a multiplication figure, which is present during the entire free-spins bonus-round.
Why players would choose the Bonus Win game is… well, let’s just say it’s not recommended… and the free-spins trumps the bonus-round in every way possible. Not only can you win up to 30 free-spins, but you can also re-trigger the free-spins, allowing you to continue gaming for (maybe?) hours on end!
