Jumanji Slot Overview
How do you feel about movie tie-ins? How about movie tie-ins based on movies based on board games – because that seems like something of a perfect set-up for the novelty-hungry world of online video slots. With that in mind, it would seem that Jumanji is just perfect for slots designers, so it seems almost weird that it’s taken from the original film’s 1995 release to 2018 for NetEnt to come up with this tie-in Jumanji slot title.
The reason is probably pretty simple. Earlier in 2018 a remake/sequel of the much-loved family film hit our screens and download markets.
Sadly, of course, we’ve not long ago lost Robin Williams, the genius star of the first film, but make no mistake this is based on the original film, not the remake. It’s the first of an ongoing deal with Sony Pictures that games fans will keep an eye on no doubt.
Entertainment aside, this game is a 5-reel set-up with a display based around the board game of the film’s title. It has 36 pay lines with a bet from one to 10 coins per line with coin-size between 0.01 and 2 of your currency measure. The jackpot is 140 with a very nice looking theoretical return to player of 96.3% and the volatility of Jumanji slot is medium.
You’ll remember that Jumanji is all about wildlife, and that’s the big feature in the Jumanji slot game too.
With a movie tie-in, you need a game that at the very least looks good, and NetEnt knows what they’re doing in that department and deliver some lovely pictures in Jumanji.
The symbols start with the usual playing card set before heading on to top-value symbols straight out of the wild of Africa: a pelican, croc, and rhino with the lion as the top payer. The game logo is the wild and the scatter is the magical game’s box.
Head to the jungle
There are four extras trailed in a very impressive intro sequence. In reality, there are even more. The base game alone has four features, all triggered at random.
A stampede feature is an extra wilds bonus. Sticky vines grow across the reels, re-spinning for a run of wins that will keep going until it can’t pay any more. A monsoon feature sends the croc out for another extra-wilds feature, and Monkey Mayhem is a version of a Respin.
All of these are delivered with beautiful graphics and animation.
The main features in this movie are the free spins bonus with a special Board Game feature. You get that with three scatters, opening up a quick game of Jumanji itself for you to enjoy on the way to free spins featuring the extras from the base game. Great fun and potentially rewarding!
You don’t need to be a huge Jumanji fan to enjoy this game. Jumanji slot is one of NetEnt’s best offerings, using some of their standard features with real imagination and a load of flair. Sony Pictures must be pleased with their deal, and players should love this game so much that the film giant will see royalties coming in for years to come.
