We’ve come to expect the best from game developers, NetEnt and it’s no different in the case of Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild either. This 5-reel video slot is themed around various jungle wildlife and has a whopping 243 ways to win.
The Jungle Spirit RTP sits at a healthy 96.47% and with so many paylines, spins from just 20p, not to mention a staggering 7,678x your stake on offer, it’s no surprise that gambling fans have gone wild for this supercharged slot.
As the title might have given away, this slot revolves around a jungle theme and the various wildlife you might find amongst the undergrowth. Your symbols range from elephants, cobras, bears, crocodiles and tigers, as well as the standard card values.
Each has its own exciting animation that plays when they make up a winning combination and even the card symbols are finished in ancient-looking stone, overgrown with vines as if they were a relic from some forgotten temple. The rest of the screen is dimly lit by the canopy of the jungle, helping the coloured reels to pop even more, and making you feel like you're right in the middle of the action.
When it comes to gameplay, the outstanding thing to note is the 243 different paylines. Whilst this is not quite on the level of a Megaways™ slot, this is still far beyond the standard 10-25 paylines that most games tend to be at.
This means that Jungle Spirit plays at a medium to high variance, with two separate bonus round features that offer even bigger potential winnings. When you consider this alongside aspects like the exciting Symbol Expansion feature, this feels like a slot with a good deal of variety, standout mechanics and plenty of depth to its gameplay overall – not to mention being very easy on the eye.
If you're a fan of online slots, most of this will be old news to you; however, if you're new to the world, it's worth us teaching you the ropes before you get started.
Like most traditional slots, this game is set up in a 3x5 reel format, meaning that the minimum amount of symbols you need to match to make a winning combination is 3. That is the case with this slot, however, there are often exceptions when it comes to some rarer, more value symbols.
In terms of controls, NetEnt’s interfaces are always top-notch and the same finesse is apparent here, with a clean, coherent and easy button design. All of your buttons and display windows run along one navigation bar at the bottom of the screen.
To the left, you will find your bet level and total amount, as well as your autoplay function, within which you can set spin and win limits. To the right, you will find your max bet button as well as your controls for adjusting your coin value, with your total amount displayed on the very right. Last but certainly not least, you have your main spin button in the very centre of the screen.
The only other thing you might need to access is the information button in the very bottom left of the screen, which includes a reminder of the rules, as well as a full paytable. Other than that, you should be ready to play!
But before you set off on your animal-filled adventure, let’s talk you through what kinds of bonuses you’ll find amongst the tropical trees of the rainforest. You have a trio of fantastic features on offer in Jungle Spirit, here’s how they work:
Every good slot starts with free spins, wouldn’t you agree? These are earned by matching 3 or more flower scatter symbols. You must then select one of the animal symbols, with each one offering a different amount of free spins: the minimum being 4 and the maximum being 20.
To make things even more interesting, if you match 4 scatters, you will also receive 15x your stake as a bonus on top of your free spins; should you be so lucky as to land 5, then you will receive a jaw-dropping 50x your stake. It’s bonuses within bonuses with this slot!
You may be familiar with similar variations on this feature, such as expanding wilds/reels, but what it basically entails is symbols that form part of winning combination expand to fill the entire reel. This is when the game visuals really shine, as each animal’s animations take up most of the screen.
Your third and final bonus feature is the Butterfly Boost, which is an expansion (pardon the pun) of the previous feature. When triggered, butterflies fill the screen and expand between 1-5 of any symbol that formed part of a winning combination, once again, taking over the entire reel.
One last, as well as these standalone bonus features, remember that the Jungle Spirit RTP is a strong 96.47%, so you already stand a good chance of winning some decent prizes from the base game alone.
