Jungle Jim returns. This time, in the latest Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx slot game from Microgaming, rather than braving the jungles of the Amazon, he is strutting his stuff in Egypt.
Jungle Jim first came to gamblers’ screens back in 2016, when game software giants, Microgaming, introduced the intrepid treasure hunter to the online gaming community, in Jungle Jim El Dorado. It was probably inspired by the popular Gonzo’s Quest slot video game from the NetEnt stable.
In this latest adventure, Jungle Jim pits his prowess against all the odds as he sets out, racing across the desert dunes in his Jeep in search of the Lost Sphinx. Beneath the dark desert sky, JJ finds himself in front of an ancient gate as he sets out in search of historic relics, beautiful, uncut gemstones and treasure chests packed with riches up for grabs in this Microgaming video slot.
This online slot game has 5-reels and 35 paylines, and it uses Microgaming’s “Rolling Reel” technology. It means that when the reels stop spinning, the play isn’t over.
Although the basic game starts out in a 5×4, 35 payline format, a nice feature built into the Multiplier Trial leads to an extra row appearing on the 3rd consecutive roll, turning the slot into 5×5, 50 payline format. But it doesn’t stop there.
Another great feature of this slot also included in the Multiplier Trail is the Respin. If you don’t chalk up a win after the 3rd roll, (this is after the new row has been unlocked), you get a single respin that offers you another opportunity to get further along the Multiplier Trail.
Watch out for the Win Booster. This slot game’s feature is by way of a side-bet. When you click on the Win Booster, it increases your total bet fourfold. It also reveals a bonus Scatter symbol that appears over the Win Booster button.
When you activate the Win Booster feature on the slot, it significantly improves your chances of getting free spins as you only need 2 Scatter symbols to trigger 12 free spins, as opposed to the 3 Scatter symbols required when the game is in normal mode. The Rolling Reels feature also comes into play in this free spin mode.
In addition to the slot’s Free Spins, there is also the symbol of the Golden Sphinx. When it lands on the 3rd reel, you get another spin, and the Multiplier Trail goes up a notch to the next level. In other words, say you land your first Golden Sphinx. It locks the 3x Level 1 multiplier so that the Multiplier Trail then notches up to Level 2 – 4x. It not only means better winning potential of the slot, but it also fuels the excitement of a Free Spins bonus.
When you manage to reach the 20x on the Multiplier Trail, the Free Spins win potential reaches a ginormous 6250x.
Slots featuring Rolling or Cascading Reels cost a little more to play, but you have better chances of winning. If you can afford the increased stake money, you should go for it. Stake money for Lost Sphinx in normal mode is from $/€/£0.10 to $/€/£20 per spin but is 4x in Win Booster mode.
Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx is a high volatility video slot game with an RTP of 96.3%. Although it is not a progressive jackpot game, you can win a handsome 6250x your stake in Free Spins. If you are a Gonzo or a JJ fanatic, you are sure to love Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx.
