- Based on the popular movies and original story of Jumanji
- Incredible graphics really bring the game to life
- Excellent features with fun animations
Jumanji slot is a highly anticipated new game from Netent that is of course based on the popular movie from 1995 and more recently in 2017 starring Dwayne Johnson, although the original story is actually from a children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg. For those of you who don’t know, Jumanji as a dangerous game which comes to life bringing with it many dangers and can only be stopped by completely the game. It’s a pretty famous story so it’s no wonder Netent have decided to bring it to the world of gaming.
So how have they gone about this? Firstly let’s start with the graphics which are nothing short of incredible. These are easily some of the best, if not the best graphics we’ve seen on any slot, even compared to Book of Gods slot, with extremely clear detail and gorgeous colours. What’s really striking though is the reel layout, with 5 reels with 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 rows which really sets Jumanji slot apart. There are 26 fixed pay lines, with a minimum bet of 10p up to a maximum of £100 and a rather generous RTP of 96.33%. Despite the strange layout, the basic aim of the game is still to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. As you’d expect, these are mostly based on the theme itself and are listed here, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
There is also a Wild symbol that substitutes for all other base symbols in a winning combination.
Jumanji Slot Bonuses and Features
There are 4 features that can activate during the base game:
- Sticky Vines. You will be awarded re-spins to increase your win, with symbols that are part of the winning combination and the Wilds from the initial spin sticking to the reels with all other symbols spinning again.
- Monsoon Wilds. This will cover 1 or 2 reels with Wild symbols.
- Monkey Mayhem. Once the reels stop, any potential wins are awarded with the symbols then being shuffled randomly to form a guaranteed win.
- Wild Stampede. A great stampede of rhinos rish across the reels while they spin adding an extra 4-9 Wild symbols.
There is also the Jumanji Slot Board Game Bonus which is based around free spins and activates with 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. You will be taken to the Jumanji board game and awarded 6, 7 or 8 rolls of the dice, respectively. You will be given 4 tokens and must choose 1 of them. After rolling the dice, your token will move around the board where you may land on a cash reward, an extra roll or 2 of the dice, the Mystery feature of one of 4 different free spins features:
- Stampede Free Spins. This will offer you 5 free spins and works in the same way as the aforementioned Wild Stampede feature.
- Monkey Free Spins. Now you will be given 6 free spins which work in the same way as the Monkey Mayhem feature.
- Monsoon Free Spins. This will give you 7 free spins and works in the same way as the Monsoon Wilds feature with the only difference being that the same covered reels can’t be chosen to 2 consecutive wins.
- Vines Free Spins. Here you are given 10 free spins with the re-spins being activated if there’s a win after the initial spin. A single free spin can have several re-spins which work just like the Sticky Vines feature. The vines will grab hold of the Wilds and keep them in place for the whole feature even if they’re not part of a win.
If you land on the Mystery feature then a mixture of 2 extra dice rolls, cash rewards and free spins features land in the centre of the board and you will be awarded one at random. If any free spins features have already been awarded they will not be part of this feature.
All in all, Jumanji slot promises to be a lot of fun and I’m sure it will appeal to a lot of people. If you’re a fan of the movies or even just the original story, I think you will be impressed with how well they stick to it and this is especially helped with the incredible graphics that look like they belong in a blockbuster movie of their own. There are plenty of features available here, the board game bonus is obviously the most appealing and certainly the most fun while the others help to keep some consistent, albeit smaller rewards going.
