Jungle Jim: El Dorado Mobile Slots
The lost and mythical city of El Dorado has fascinated man for hundreds of years. What started as a tribal chief who doused himself in gold dust and submerged himself in Lake Guatavita eventually evolved into a city, then a kingdom and finally, an empire. The search for this mythical city of gold has been a quest since the 1500’s when the Spanish conquistadors began exploring the South America’s and in the process mapped out the Amazon River. While the existence of such a city has long been dismissed, the legend has survived and made its way into movies, video games and of course mobile slots. Which brings us to Jungle Jim: El Dorado Mobile Slots, one of the new titles released by Microgaming and one showing off some of their latest talents.
Jungle Jim: Look & Feel
The trend of 3D animation has finally taken hold of the mobile casino industry. What started off as what could been perceived as a phase has flowered into a full-on gaming industry, spearheaded by Betsoft and now picked up by Microgaming – a company with a brilliant track record and a world-wide reputation. With Jungle Jim: El Dorado Mobile Slots, the company has taken the visuals to a new level. Everything looks polished, refined and fresh – like the gold that the game’s main character hunts. The sound quality is also quite impressive and sounds rather tribal – which is fits in quite nicely with the rest of the theme.
Playing Jungle Jim Features
This isn’t the first time that Microgaming have dealt with this subject matter. The original Jungle Jim was released back in 2005 and while this game is still hot in terms of winning possibilities, it is rather outdated in the looks department. The game sports 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines and has all kinds of interesting images such as treasure chests precious stones, ancient artefacts, amulets and statues. Jung Jim himself is stationed on the left hand side of the reels looking like he’s straight out an Indiana Jones film and he makes all kinds of movements, sounds and gestures when you spin the reels. Thanks to the great graphics and sounds of this game, its immersive qualities are strong, but then so are its cool win-enabling features.
Jungle Jim Features
Jungle Jim: El Dorado comes with two prominent features, sure to help Jim and you along to the riches that the game has to offer. Firstly it’s got the Rolling Reels™, a feature that’s available in the base games and in the Free Sins bonus game. The Rolling Reel feature might be a simple innovation, but it’s an effective one and it can yield more wins. Plus, when it works, it gives you free spins in the process. Whenever you get a winning combination, the symbols of the winning payline will disappear while the rest of the reels remain frozen. New symbols will then roll down into the exposed spaces to create the possibility of a new win and no extra cost. Each time you win consecutively the multiplier value of the game goes up and can peak at 5x.
No one can refuse a Free Spins feature and this in Jungle Jim you can receive 10 spins when three or more Scatters appear on your screen. The Rolling Reel feature is active in the Free Spins and can increase the multiplier values of your wins up to 15x.
