NetEnt is the creator behind Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild, a slot machine where they are taking us deep into ancient jungle forests, in search for the ruins left behind by some long lost civilizations. Some of the graphics seem to indicate this ancient connection, but the better paying symbols are the ones with wild life and flowers.
You will have 243 ways to win that can be employed on the 5 reels. The rewards don’t reach high values, getting up to $5,000 at most. I think that the features make up for them though, offering the player a Symbol Expansion, the Butterfly Boost, scatters and free spins with 1024 ways to win.
Betting and Prizes
Between 20 and 100 coins are going to be used in any wager that you place, depending on the level of the bet that you’re selecting. The coin value is another area where you can make some changes, taking it from $0.01 to $1. As for the complete range of your bets, it will vary between $0.20 and $100.
If you check out only the regular symbols, they don’t pay more than $750 for a combination. The features will do better though, with rewards of up to 50x total bet being mentioned, which should mean a prize of up to $5,000 that is offered. The 96.47% RTP is also good enough to allow you to play the slot.
Jungle Spirit Slot Features
Symbol Expansion is the name of one of the features available in this game. It can be triggered during any spins, both paid and free. It will involve the appearance of butterflies that will mark symbols. If that symbol is part of a winning combination, then it will expand and an entire reel will be covered by it.
Butterfly Boost is another feature that you get at random. Once again, you see the butterflies make an appearance, this time flying around the reels and expanding between 1 and 3 symbols, to take part in a winning combo that is guaranteed.
Scattered Lotus Flowers are used as triggers for the free spins feature. You need between three and five symbols of this type on the five reels, in any position they can appear in. There are additional cash rewards offered if you have four or five scatters as triggers, with 15x and 50x total bet being won this way. The layout of the reels will have an additional row during the free spins, and will use 1024 ways to win.
At the start of the feature, you will pick one of the five types of free spins. Each free spin has a different medium win symbol that will be dominant, and based on this the number of rounds varies. You can have between 4 and 20 free spins, with the dominant symbol ranging from the tiger to the snake.
Theme & Design
There is a jungle theme in this game that is not unique at all, not in this industry at least. You get slot machines with wild animals and jungle views from all major developers and many of the smaller ones. As symbols, the images shown on the reels are of flowers, tigers, elephants, bears, crocodiles, snakes and five poker cards which appear to be cut out of stone and carved by an ancient civilization.
Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild is a fun game mostly because of the way it was built, including here its features especially. The theme is average, but the graphics quality partially saves the day here as well.
