Jungle Spirit

Summary

NetEnt are challenging online gamers to take a walk on the wild side with their exciting jungle-themed slot:  Jungle Spirit - Call of the Wild.  As with a trip to the heart of the jungle, players can expect the unexpected with this one.  There are no wild symbols, but the free spin feature (triggered by three or more scatter flower symbols) adds a row to the reels taking the number of win-lines up to 1024!  Players can also customise their play to either minimise risk or prove their inner tiger by going for nothing less than super mega wins. 

About the Developer

Players of online games will already know NetEnt as a developer who consistently set the standards for digital gaming around the world.  The studio was founded in 1996 and quickly grew from a three-person operation into a gaming behemoth, accumulating a portfolio of more than 200 games along the way.  If you haven’t already, why not check out a few of these popular titles: The Invisible Man, The Legend of Shangri La:  Cluster Pays and Gonzo’s Quest.

About the Game

The jungle theme is smooth and convincing here with animal sound effects and mysterious rustles thrown in for good measure.  Basic symbols are the classic playing cards from 9-A which look as if they have been hewn out of ancient stone.  Premium symbols represent majestic and feared jungle bears including the bear, crocodile and elephant.   

Free Spins

Spin three or more pink flower scatter symbols to trigger this outstanding free spin feature.  Players can now move a slider to select whether they want to ‘Win Big’ (with more risk) or ‘Win Often’ (less volatility).  This is a great idea that gives the player more control. 

Next, choose your spirit animal to decide the number of free spins.  Again, it’s up to you whether to select more spins or risk fewer spins for greater reward.  The choices of spirit animals is:

  • Tiger (four spins)
  • Elephant (eight spins)
  • Bear (twelve spins)
  • Alligator (sixteen spins)
  • Cobra (twenty spins)

Symbol Expansion

During any spin in the base or bonus game look for butterflies flitting onto symbols.  If these symbols are part of a winning combination then they will stretch out to fill the reel for potentially far bigger wins.

Butterfly Boost

As with symbol expansion, butterflies can fly onto any of the five reels - although this only applies to the base game.  Again, if the symbol turns out to be part of a win, the symbol will expand to cover the reel.

Since NetEnt introduced NetEnt Live Mobile, all of its online slot games can be played on the move from mobile devices or at home.

The Verdict

Jungle Spirit - Call of the Wild invites players to connect with their spirit animal in the hopes of winning big.  The visuals are great and the animal sound effects are atmospheric, but the reason you have to play this game is the outstanding bonus rounds where multipliers can reach a staggering 1024x!
