Jungle Jim sequel released by Microgaming
Microgaming have pleased a huge amount of slot players everywhere with the announcement that Jungle Jim is to get a sequel. The game, which is titled Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx, will see the eponymous hero make his way to Egypt to search for hidden treasure. It’s guaranteed to grab the attention of many players due to the sheer popularity of the character.
The sequel everyone wanted
The game has had almost six months of build up after it was announced at iGB Live! This has given players plenty of time to get ready for this new adventure.
The new title will feature 35 paylines which really puts players in the middle of regular wins. On top of that there are times when the reels will increase in size and the paylines will increase to 50! Jungle Jim will have to find the Lost Sphinx and along the way will have the opportunity to grab multipliers of up to 10 to help boost wins.
Big wins on offer
The game offers a beautiful view that will grab the attention of players all over the world. It features background of a beautiful starry night and shows off a trail on additional multipliers that can be applied to any wins. These can also be increased up to 10 times the regular win amount during the free spins feature. On top of this it has a cascading reel feature so that all symbols involved in winning lines are removed to allow for new wins to be created.
If a player manages to create three wins in a row with the cascading reels then the size of the reels increases. This will give an increased multiplier and more paylines. Players are also given an extra respin that is activated if they do not create a win with their initial spin.
Even more spins
As is usually the case, the bonus spins round is activated by landing more than two scatter symbols land on the reels. This will then see Jungle Jim abseil down to the bigger reel, where the entire bonus spins round takes place. This bigger reel will also have an increased multiplier available for cascading wins.
The golden Sphinx will sometimes arrive during this feature. When it does it gives players extra help to get the 20 times multiplier. This is because it awards even more bonus spins and moves the multiplier level up by one more.
There is an extra bonus with the new Jungle Jim game too. The win booster will increase the cost of spins, but it reduces the number of scatters needed to activate the bonus spins. With the win booster active it will take just two of them to trigger the bonus mode.
Microgaming have said in a statement that they are extremely happy with the new Jungle Jim game. They have been waiting for a long time to give the character a return and feel that now is the time. They said that it will be worth the wait for players due to the enjoyable features and incredible wins that are on offer.
The subsidiary studio that created the game for Microgaming is called Stormcraft. They too have announced how happy they are with the title. They feel that this chance to create something special was too good to miss for them and as such they have spent a great deal of time and effort making sure the latest Jungle Jim game is the best in the series. Players who loved the original are going to love this new chapter in Jim’s adventure.
Up and coming developer
Stormcraft have an excellent reputation within the industry at the moment. They are regularly trusted by Microgaming to handle some of their hottest properties. This shows as they were given the Agent Jane Blonde sequel and the wildly popular Fortunium game to develop.
