Fans of the classic nineties movie Jumanji will adore this beautifully designed tribute by slot specialists NetEnt. Even if you are not familiar with the film, this is an awesome game with some serious potential for big wins, and lots of incredible features.
Jungle themed board game Jumanji brings players’ nightmares to life, summoning terrifying creatures with every spin of the dice. In this slot game version, you get to risk the roll yourself and try to make your way around the Jumanji board. Watch out for the monkeys!
How Jumanji works
Unlike a typical slot, the five Jumanji reels are diamond shaped: the layout is 3-4-5-4-3. Wins pay left to right across the 36 lines. The action takes place in the centre of the Jumanji board itself - keep an eye out for random creatures which can run in at any time!
The game’s symbols include the usual A-K-Q-J set, along with a pelican, lion, crocodile and rhino. There is also the Jumanji board, which acts as the game’s scatter bonus, and a wild symbol which replaces everything but the scatter. The lion pays the highest at 140x the bet.
This game has one of the most intricate and engaging bonus games we have ever seen on a slot. When you find three or more board game symbols, it is time to play Jumanji! Players get six, seven or eight rolls of the dice, and must make their way around the board. Spaces include extra rolls, instant win prizes, and entry into free spin games.
There are four free spin rounds in total, and it is possible to hit them all during a single bonus game! Each has a different reel modifier and number of free games, as follows:
- Vine Spins: 10x free games with extra wilds and sticky wild respins
- Monsoon Spins: 7x spins with crocodiles turning full reels wild
- Monkey Spins: 6x games with monkeys rearranging symbols into wins
- Rhino Spins: 5x frees with a wild stampede on each spin
Each of these features can also trigger independently during a random base game spin, mixing up the reels even more and boosting the player’s balance!
Jumanji technical stats
Thanks to the drawn-out feature round, Jumanji can create some incredible wins. In fact, the maximum coin win is 28,000 per spin - based on a maximum stake. Players can find their own comfort zone thanks to NetEnt’s bet levelling system - adjust the coin value and also the bet level to wager between 0.20 and 200.00 per spin.
The game has low to medium variance, with small wins hitting often during the base game. The diamond shaped reels and 36 lines can keep the prizes coming, even between bonus dry spells. Plus, the random features trigger often. The reported RTP is 96.33%.
