Jungle Jackpots Mowgli’s Wild Adventure is a Blueprint Gaming-powered video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines – you can play from just 20p a spin to as much as £500 a spin. With a wild, jungle theme, the game is based on Mowgli who is the main character from the Jungle Book stories. It’s colourful, fun and has cartoon-style graphics with 4 bonus features to benefit from.
The reels are set on a book (The Jungle Book) so look out for the pages flickering during the base game – when it does, Mowgli’s Wild Adventure is then triggered. The pages will turn to reveal a character each with their own characteristics:
- Mowgli Wilds: Mowgli swings across the reels turning random positions into wilds.
- Hathi Expanding Wilds: Hathi the elephant stomps on to the screen turning up to 4 reels wild.
- Kaa Locking Wilds – one the reels stop, any Kaa wild symbol locks in place where you then pick 1 from 3 baskets to win a spin, extra wilds or end.
- Monkey Mischief: when the reels are still, monkeys show up above the reels and pull up the reels revealing stacked symbols.
Look out for vultures too as they can add new symbols to the reels to give you a winning combination. There are 4 main bonus features though with all the details below:
Baloo’s Cash Bonus feature
Look out for the Baloo scatter on reels 1 and 3 as well as the Baloo’s Cash Bonus symbol on reel 5 to trigger it. You will see Baloo push the Golden Money tree with gold coins falling out giving you a cash prize. You will then be asked to pick 1 of 2 signs in Baloo’s hands – Continue will make Baloo push the tree again and Collect will end the feature. There is up to 500 times your total stake to be won here!
Mowgli’s Cash Trail Bonus feature
This is triggered when you get Baloo on reels 1 and 3 as well as Mowgli’s Cash Trail symbol on reel 5. Baloo then throws Mowgli into the air where he lands on 1 of the branches. Then Mowgli jumps onto another branch each with a cash multiplier. Once he stops. The vultures will fly on with you deciding to collect or continue. Continuing will advance you up the trail – if you reach the Golden Apple, you will win a huge payout of up to 1,000 times your stake.
Bagheera’s Free Spins feature
This is played when you get Baloo on reels 1 and 3 as well as the Bagheera’s Free Spins symbol on reel 5. You will begin with 5 free spins with the middle reel being a Bagheera Wild reel. Any winning combination triggers the Bagheera streak where the winning symbols are held with all others re-spinning. This continues until no more of that symbol appear.
Baloo’s Colossal Spins feature
You can play this feature when you see Baloo on reels 1 and 3 as well as the Baloo Colossal Spin symbol on reel 5. Elephants walk across the screen adding free spins as they pass. What’s better is that Colossal symbols are active on the reels with 2×2 and 3×3 symbols appearing. I’ve managed to win over 300 times my stake here before.
Finally there is a Baloo’s Bonus Gamble feature – when you have a feature win in the game, you can collect the feature or Gamble to try and win one of the other features. You will come across 4 options. There is a Balooby Prize where you will win a mystery cash prize.
Jungle Jackpots Mowgli’s Wild Adventure is certainly a very entertaining slot game. Packed full of features, the variance is medium which is great. I’ve had my biggest wins in Baloo’s Colossal Spins feature due to the 3×3 Colossal symbols. I love the theme (as I loved the film/book) as it’s refreshing and fun. Thumbs up to Blueprint Gaming who also produce other good slots like Zuma and Fortunes of Sparta.
