Mighty Tusk is a 5 reel, 20 payline progressive jackpot slot from Blueprint Gaming that owes a lot to the Jungle Book story. Available to play on all compatible devices from 20p to £150 per spin, it’s all about the Free Spins Bonus feature where up to 65 free spins can be won – you can play with up to 4 reel sets as well as benefit from expanding wild symbols and the removal of the lower value symbols. As part of the Jackpot King network, 3 jackpots are up for grabs.
With a strong Jungle Book feel, Mighty Tusk has cartoon style graphics and looks great – as well as the usual A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards, you’ll see snakes, tigers, bears, panthers and monkeys on the reels. Look out for the elephant as this is the wild symbol – it performs all the usual duties like replacing all symbols except the scatter. More importantly, 3, 4 or 5 wilds on a payline will give you 5, 100 or 1,000 times your stake.
The other important symbol is the Bonus scatter – 3, 4 or 5 of them in view will activate the Mighty Tusk Free Spins feature and give you 15, 20 or 50 free spins. You will then see 4 reel sets with only 1 reel set being active. The make the other reel sets come into play, you need to collect peanut symbols:
- 12 peanuts will unlock reel set 2 as well as the wild transforming into an expanding wild
- 18 peanuts will unlock reel set 3 as well as the wild transforming into an expanding wild and the Q, J and 10 symbols being removed (on reel set 3)
- 24 peanuts will unlock reel set 4 as well as the wild transforming into an expanding wild with all royal symbols being removed (on reel set 4)
On top of this, you will receive 5 additional free spins for every reel set you unlock – with up to 50 available when you trigger the feature, that makes a possible 65 free spins on offer. With the high value symbol, the wild expanding is where the bigger wins should come from.
Medium to high variance, Mighty Tusk packs quite a punch as filling all reel positions with wilds will give you a 20,000 times stake payout. Finally, there’s a Jackpot King Bonus feature which is entered when you get 5 Jackpot King overlay symbols on reels 1 to 5. Here you collect crowns to win cash prizes or enter the Wheel King sea – here’s where you can win 1 of 3 progressive jackpots. If you like the theme, I recommend you try Jungle Books by Yggdrasil Gaming and Jungle Jackpots Mowgli’s Wild Adventure from Blueprint Gaming.
