Its always exciting news when NetEnt launches a branded slot game based on a blockbuster movie. The Swedish company’s latest slot release, Jumanji is based on the 1995 cult movie Jumanji™ and promises to be a cracker, with many exciting features.
In the Jumanji movie, an ancient board game is unearthed and when played, causes havoc and chaos beyond imagination. Now slot lovers can relive the suspense and magic of the classic film in this 5 reel, 36 fixed paylines slot game, that has a 3-4-5-4-3 layout and pays left to right. Needless to say, the graphics, animations and the audio effects are all amazing and give the game a grand aura.
Jumanji Slot Symbols & Details
The 4 main symbols are that of lions, crocodiles, pelicans and rhinos and the screen is dominated by the board game. The ‘Jumanji Board Game’ symbol is the scatter and the word Wild is, well, the Wild symbol. The lion is the highest paying symbol and 5 across the payline can win you 14x. You need 3 or more scatters to trigger the awesome Board Game feature. The wild substitutes all symbols except the Scatter.
You can bet from €0.10 to €200, and the maximum win on a single spin is 504x for a full screen of lion/wild symbols. Not very generous, we must admit, but the random features and the Board Game more than makes up for this.
Random Features in Jumanji Slot
The 4 random bonus features in the base game are a real treat and with superb audio and video effects, makes the game special.
Wild Stampede – triggers randomly on any spin in the base game. The entire screen shakes and thundering Rhinos stampede across the screen while randomly turning symbols into Wilds.
Monkey Mayhem – triggers randomly in the base game and a bunch of helpful monkeys shuffle up the reels to make winning combinations.
Sticky Vines – triggers randomly in the base game and the creepy vines lock the winning symbols and Wilds and then activates respins until there are no more winning combinations.
Monsoon Wilds – triggers randomly in the base game and the jumping crocodiles turn 1 to 2 reels into Wilds.
Jumanji Slot Board Game
The Board Game is the heart, and the USP of this slot. You enter the Board Game when you land at least 3 Scatters (the Board Game symbol) anywhere on the reels. The fun starts and now you need to roll the dice and an animal figurine starts moving on the board game, which on stopping, awards cash prizes, free spins, coin wins, extra dice rolls or a mystery feature. The animations and sounds in the Board Game round make the game very involving, and the free spins and extra dice rolls mean that the Board Game can go on for a long time awarding you big wins!
So, is Jumanji a rewarding slot game and worth the hype? We think so. Even though the max win of 504x, the medium variance, and the absence of any major jackpots may discourage some, the game still has a lot to offer. The audio-visuals are stunning. The 4 random features are worthwhile and lots of fun. The innovative Board Game is addictive and pretty generous too. In the end we’re happy to say that this is one board game you’d love to play without worrying about catastrophic consequences!
