Jumanji Slot Review
At the time of writing, Jumanji has just hit DVD and Blu-Ray (i.e. the new version with The Rock and Jack Black, not the old one).
By all accounts, it is a tremendous movie. It even attracted better reviews than the original. Alas, we are still blinded by nostalgia, so we love that this attempt from NetEnt is actually based upon the older movie rather than the new one.
This game just ‘feels’ like Jumanji. There is a reason why NetEnt always seem to be awarded some of the best movie licences when it comes to making their games.
It is because they know how to do them properly. So, think along the lines of animals from the movie, a jungle theme, and some epic music (at least for a 90s comedy). If you love the original movie, then you are going to feel right at home when you play this game.
Simple to Play
The slot is simple to play, although we doubt that you expected anything different from NetEnt.
Surprisingly, there are several features packed into Jumanji, which is why we keep playing it, but none of them are particularly difficult to wrap your head around.
One word of warning, though. This is a medium volatility slot. It is going to be easy to be lured in by the minimum bet of 10p per spin. However, don’t expect to be winning a lot when you play this game. You may go several dozen spins without seeing anything.
However, Jumanji slot machine is very much a case of ‘slow and steady wins the race’. If you keep your bet low, then we reckon you could walk away with something from Jumanji.
It is not going to be a lot, but since this is the most fun slot machine we have played in a while, and that is not just because we like the theme, we reckon that you should be fine.
One of the things that we love about the Jumanji slot is that the bulk of the features that you will find in the game can occur on any spin.This means that there is always a sense of excitement when you spin the reels. It keeps you playing:
- Monsoon Wilds: if this feature pops up, one or more of the reels can turn fully wild. This means all five reels, which delivers huge wins.
- Monkey Mayhem: monkeys will rearrange the symbols to create winning combinations for you.
- Wild Stampede: a stampede will hit the reels, spreading wilds everywhere.
- Sticky Vines: this only occurs when you win. It basically locks the winning symbols into place and you get a free respin.
As you can tell; all of these features have been carefully themed around the idea of Jumanji, which makes them even better. Yeah, they are features that have appeared in other slots from NetEnt, but they are oddly thematic.
In addition to this, there is a bonus game. This, again, is going to be thematic. You will need three scatter symbols to trigger it. You will then be given a combination of a board game, free spins thing. It is quite exciting. Sadly, since this is a medium volatility slot, it is probably not going to appear as often as one would hope.
Jumanji Mobile Slot
If you love your mobile slots, then you will be pleased to know that the Jumanji mobile slot is one of the best in the business. It functions just as smoothly on your mobile device as it would on your computer.
There is a slightly long load time due to the huge size of the game, so make sure you are not connected to your mobile network here or you could rack up some serious charges if you are not careful. Other than this, we reckon that the Jumanji mobile slot is one of the best games the company has produced for mobile devices.
Summary- What Do We Think?
If you want a brilliant movie-themed slot, then check out Jumanji. If you love the movie, then you will love this game too. However, honestly, even if you are not the biggest fan of the movie, the raw excitement that the features give you should be more than enough to keep you engrossed in the game. This is highly recommended from us!
