Jungle Jim El Dorado bonus features
This adventure-themed slot isn’t the most feature-packed game we’ve played, but the Rolling Reels more than make up for that. Rolling Reels are Microgaming’s name for cascading or avalanching reels, and allow you to land consecutive wins on a single spin.
When paired with the free spins feature in Jungle Jim El Dorado, the Rolling Reels can really ramp things up with up to 15x multipliers. Read on to learn more about each of the features and what to look out for.
Whenever you complete a winning payline, the symbols in the line will disappear to make space for new symbols to drop into place. This is known as the Rolling Reels function, and if the new symbols complete a new payline, you’ll be awarded another win. Each time this happens in a row, your prize will be awarded a multiplier which increases by one each time.
In the base game, the multiplier can rise as high as 5x your prize, which is achieved by four or more consecutive wins from one spin.
The talisman symbol acts as the scatter, and things can get exciting very quickly when three or more appear on the reels. Not only will you be awarded a coin prize for the scatters alone, you’ll also trigger 10 free spins.
The Rolling Reels function will also apply to the free spins round, and here the multiplier values will be increased. Instead of the maximum 5x multiplier, you can achieve up to 15x your prize when you score four or more consecutive wins from one free spin.
The Jungle Jim El Dorado logo acts as a wild in this slot, and will help you complete paylines by substituting for any symbol except a scatter.
Jungle Jim El Dorado jackpot
A jackpot could have fit in with the El Dorado theme well, however instead of a jackpot, this slot has a maximum payout of 92,000 coins.
RTP and volatility
What we like about this slot is the balance it has in both variance and return to player. The medium volatility means a good mix of high and low wins will come in semi-frequently; and the ranging
RTP of 96-97% will also keep things exciting. The varied RTP comes from the combination of the free spins and Rolling Reels, which has the potential to grow huge prizes.
Jungle Jim El Dorado on mobile
The mobile version of this slot offers an equal level of quality to the desktop version. However, to appreciate the stunning graphics and animations in full, you might want to play on a bigger screen.
