Written by Rudyard Kipling in 1894, a collection of tales featuring various wild animals and this online slot from Yggdrasil Gaming is obviously based on those very stories. The graphic is so cartoony you feel like a little kid growing up again as it matches the fairy-tail theme wonderfully and pulls you into the game that much more.
The symbols are incredibly well illustrated, along with the realm backgrounds, makes this slot one of the best graphics visualizations across the entire gaming industry.
Theme & Gameplay
There are six high-value symbols, and these are all tropical fruit, all weird, but really cool looking. The card symbols are the ones with a lower value. Jungle Books is a 5-reel slot with 3-rows and 58/68 pay lines, the thing is, the features and the reel sets depend on which realm you’re playing.
The only downside about this game is the difficulty of triggering the bonus features. There may be 10 Bonus Features, but none of them is a Free Spins feature and you’ll have to spin the reels in order to find out exactly what’s the fuzz all about. The minimum coin denomination here is 0,002 whilst the maximum is 2 and your coin bet is a fixed 50.
The Rules of the Jungle
Wilds: Wild doesn’t form combinations on its own, but replaces other elements in combinations, when necessary. It also makes special functions during bonus features.
Synced Reels: The Synced Reels feature applies to all realms. In the Boy, Tiger and Bear realms, reels 1 and 2 are synced as are reels 4 and 5. In the Panther’s realm, reels 1 and 5 are synced. In the Snake’s realm, reels 2, 3 and 4 are synced. This means the corresponding reels display the same symbols.
The Boy’s Realm
♦ Reels one and two/three and four will land matching symbols.
♦ All wilds that land on the reels create 1-2 extra wilds and places them randomly.
The Tiger’s Realm
♦ Landing any win triggers a free re-spin with those winning symbols and all wilds held in place.
♦ Stacked wilds are added to reel three.
The Bear’s Realm
♦ One symbol will be randomly chosen and becomes stuck on all reels each spin. Any symbol can be chosen.
♦ Landing any honeycomb symbols on the tallest reel will award a Pick and Click minigame. The player gets to pick a prize per honeycomb worth from 50 to 50000 coins.
The Panther’s Realm
♦ The golden hanging fruit symbol acts as a wild.
♦ Random wins receive an x2, x3, x5 multiplier.
The Snake’s Realm
♦ Winning combos can be formed from both directions.
♦ A hefty x3 multiplier is received from any win with at least one wild symbol.
Undoubtedly, Jungle Books is one of Yggdrasil best games around due to the minimum coin denominations. Rules of this game might seem too complicated, however, you don’t need to bother yourself with the boring little details. Bonus features are automatic at all levels and even if you are required to do something, it’s clearly stated what and how.
In general, the game is incredibly enticing and overall fun. Characters that replace each other and the prize features that come with them. The functions of special symbols and suddenly triggered bonus options are a pleasant surprise. The graphics and animations are outstanding and so is the RTP of 96.10%. We wish you luck in the jungle players, and keep your eyes wide open because you never you what you might run into!
