Jungle Jim El Dorado is a slot by software developer Microgaming which they haven’t given a standard layout. This has resulted in an exciting slot with a lot of interesting possibilities but it’s also made it somewhat difficult to play. Namely, it doesn’t have clear reels, which makes it hard to clearly see what animations have landed on your playing grid. A big advantage is that Microgaming has decided to not use any standard symbols and even to add an extra feature!
How to play Jungle Jim El Dorado?
Jungle Jim El Dorado is a slot you first have to get familiar with. To the left of the playing grid, you will find Jim just standing there, not having any influence on the rest of the game. The reels aren’t separated but they do amount to five reels and three rows. The slot also has an avalanche feature. This means that all symbols part of a winning combination vanish and the void they leave will be replenished with new symbols falling from the top. These new symbols could immediately lead to newly formed wins. If that happens, the entire process repeats itself and keeps on doing this until there are no new wins. In the top right corner, you will find the current multiplier. The longer your win streak, the higher the multiplier. It’s pretty fun but not very original. For example, this slot strongly resembles Gonzo’s Quest by Net Entertainment, which is a slot that has been around for much longer already.
The slot does not have any standard symbols and Jungle Jim functions as the wild. This wild symbol can finish wins as it can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter.
Free spins in Jungle Jim El Dorado
Jungle Jim El Dorado is equipped with free spins and also this feature has been based on someone else’s work. During regular spins, the multiplier ranges between 1x and 5x. During free spins, on the other hand, the multiplier ranges between 3x and 15x with intervals of three. This means that wins during free spins are, on average, significantly higher than wins during regular spins. Also, the scatter still has its old function when you’re spinning for free. That is, you can still win additional free spins, allowing you to continue playing with higher multipliers, for free(!), for even longer.
Jackpot and pay lines on Jungle Jim El Dorado
Jungle Jim El Dorado is not equipped with a jackpot and the slot also doesn’t really need one as it already has enough exciting elements. One of these elements is the avalanche feature, capable of making you quite some money. Especially during free spins, you will be able to win a lot of money because of the large multipliers. You cannot alter the pay lines and you will have to make do with Microgaming’s pay line settings. At the bottom of the slot, you can alter your coin value and number of coins per pay line.
This slot will definitely be worth your while because of its free spins and avalanche feature. However, most people who’ve also played Gonzo’s Quest will recognize copied elements. The rest, on the other hand, does seem to stem from Microgaming themselves.
