Everyone knows that Jungle Jim El Dorado is going live at Microgaming online casinos like Roxy Palace and Golden Riviera on September 7. You can spend the interim period catching up on the fictional hunter and playing the original Jungle Jim slot game. This article will get you set on both.
Jungle Jim was launched in comic strip format in 1934 by King Features Syndicate. It featured the jungle adventures of the Asian based Jim Bradley, who was nicknamed Jungle Jim. Later the character was co-opted to other media such as radio, film and television. Initially Jungle Jim battled pirates and slave traders but during the WWII years the story developed a war theme.
The Jungle Jim online slot loads to raucous jungle sounds and symbols that are crafted in somewhat comic book style. All the symbols are thematic in nature. Jungle Jim awards line payouts of up to 1500 times the line bet. There are two other human characters used as symbols. One is an old man in an expedition habit and the other is a demure lady wearing glasses. The female protagonist in Jungle Jim was Lille DeVrille. Lille was a femme fatale and the woman in the slot game is nowhere close to that stereotype. The other symbols are panther, python, giant spider, piranha and Venus fly trap. This should give you some idea of what Jungle Jim was up against.
There are special symbols in this video slot and they exhibit slight win animations. The jungle is the wild symbol that substitutes for the regular symbols. It also awards the largest line payouts from two-of-a-kind combinations. Five jungle symbols pay 4000 times the line bet. The scatter symbol seems to be some sort of drum doing by the win animation. It awards scatter payouts up to 75 times the total bet. The crocodile bonus symbol also awards payouts multiplied by the total bet, but needs to land on active paylines. It also triggers the only bonus feature of the slot game. You will be awarded up to 10 free spins, which may appear a bit few, but come with a handsome 5x multiplier. The free spins cannot be retriggered.
Jungle Jim is a 15 selectable payline video slot, but you should wager with all paylines activated. You can bet up to 10 coins per payline and the coin size can vary from $0.01 to $0.50. The maximum total bet per spin works out to $75, which should attract a fair number of high rollers at Microgaming online casinos.
