If you loved Microgaming’s Jungle Jim El Dorado slot, then you may well be eager for another instalment in the series. Look no further than Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx!
Packed full of adventure and exotic mystery, this is another great offering from Microgaming. Developed in conjunction with Stormcraft Studios, it shows just what a wealth of iGaming talent each company possesses.
In terms of game background and theme, this is an action/adventure title which is set in Egypt. The desert backdrop and golden sands help to take players right into the heart of the action. The character of Jungle Jim is naturally present and this adds some great depth to the gameplay as well. The base game uses a 5-reel set-up with 35 paylines active.
It also sees Microgaming make use of its innovative Rolling Reels game mechanics. This sees winning symbols removed from the reels to make way for new symbols to appear on-screen. Interestingly, the win multiplier increases by 1 level each time this happens for larger payouts. Get up to Level 5 and you get an x10 win multiplier to enjoy! Jungle Jim himself is also worth looking out for in the base game. 5 of this symbol will see you get a win of 10x your initial stake.
As with most modern slots, you will probably be eager to know what RTP this game has. It actually scores well here with a figure of 96.30%. This is pretty good and certainly compares well with other slots you could play now. It sits around Medium in terms of volatility which reflects the win multipliers and features on offer. Available on both desktop and mobile, it looks very good and has an engaging storyline to draw players in with.
Although there are not masses of bonus features here, what there is performs well. The major one to look out for is free spins, which are triggered when 3 or more scatters appear. This sees 12 Free Spins awarded to use with 5, 10 or 20 times your stake given in prizes too. For even better wins, the Free Spins feature sees 50 paylines come into play. If the Sphinx symbol appears on reel 3 during the Free Spin round, you get another free go and see your multiplier trail upgraded by a single level. This can see your Free Spin win multiplier reach x20 at the highest level. The max win in the Free Spin round is 6,250 times your stake which is pretty darn good.
The action-packed theme certainly helps to make this fun to play while Microgaming/Stormcraft Studios have produced a great looking game. It really is all about hitting those Free Spins and making the most of Rolling Reels in the base game though. If you do, you could be on for some very nice wins.
