If Jenny Nevada of Rival Gaming fame is ever looking for a mate then Johnny Jungle would probably be just her cup of tea, this Rival slot offering follows pretty much the same theme; Johnny is an intrepid explorer who is out seeking his fortune, and he’s navigating his way through the jungle to get there. If you like a higher quality of graphics, then this game will be preferable to you as it is a new release.
Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple occurs on a layout of five reels and three rows in total. This is a basic video slot interface, and Rival Gaming has chosen to add a set of 25 pay lines to it. If you prefer to place bets on fewer pay lines, you can do so by customising the active number of them to suit you. Then you have the ability to customise your bet as well by choosing a coin value between 1p and 25p. You can bring up to 10 of these coins into play on each line, allowing you to place a maximum wager of £62.50 in the game.
The visual side of the slot is one of its best features, with the jungle obviously being on display in the background. The symbols that appear upon the reels start with playing card additions running from 9 through to A. There’s also the inclusion of a walkie talkie for Johnny to use should he get lost, while a tropical pink flower is also active as a symbol. These are joined by a symbols of a compass, a pair of binoculars and the slot’s highest paying standard symbol – the knife. This one can multiply your total stake by up to 500x for a pay-out.
The symbol of Johnny Jungle himself works as this game’s wild addition. This means that wherever he appears on the reels he will stand in for all other standard symbols, helping you to form winning combinations in the process. What’s more, if the wild does manage to participate in a win, it will multiply your pay-out by 2x. Plus, if you manage to create a win consisting solely of five wild symbols, then you will receive a bet multiplier of 1,000x as a reward.
In the slot’s free spins round, the wild symbol takes on a whole other format, as it becomes a sticky wild. So once it shows up, it will substitute in a win if possible and then remain stuck in the same position before triggering a re-spin of the reels. Additional sticky wilds appearing after the re-spin will set the process off again and this continues until no further wilds come into view.
In order to trigger the free spins round, you need to spin at least three of the free spins scatter symbols into view. This one is represented by the ferocious looking jungle ape.
When you spin three of this symbol into view you’ll be the recipient of 10 free spins, while 15 will be given to you for the appearance of four scatters. You’ll get the maximum of 30 free spins whenever five of the ape symbol show up.
Pick and Idol Bonus
Something else that you should be on the lookout for in Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple is the bonus symbol. This is represented by the gold coin with the skull on it. If three or more of this one come into view on the reels, then the bonus round starts.
You’ll first receive up to 25x your wager from the bonus symbol and then the Pick an Idol round can be played. In it, you simply need to choose one of the idols to receive coin wins.
Adventure games will always be entertaining regardless of how you look at them. Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple is a great product from Rival Gaming, and it has the graphics and overall gameplay to stand out from the crowd. The bonus round makes it something altogether more unique, but with the inclusion of a wild and free spins as well, you’ll never get bored of spinning its reels.
