Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild is a NetEnt slot with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Playable on all devices from 20p a spin, this jungle themed game benefits from a Symbol Expansion feature – each symbol part of a winning spin will expand to cover the whole reel. There’s a randomly triggered Butterfly Boost feature where butterflies expand up to 5 symbols that are part of a winning spin to give you whole reels of that symbol. The Free Spins feature allows you to pick 5 free spin animals which only appear on the reels – you can get up to 20 free spins but the 4 free spin tiger option gives you bigger rewards. There’s a massive 7,678 times your stake to be won on each tiger free spin!
Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild is a Net Entertainment powered slot which has 5 reels and 243 to 1,024 ways to win. As you’d expect, it can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 20p to £100 per spin. You are taken on a wondrous journey deep into the jungle with 3 bonus features.
Visually, it’s set in a jungle and has superb 3D graphics – it also has a lively background where wild nature comes to life. You can also choose the background music of your choice – it can be intense drums of relaxing nature sounds. Symbols on the reels include low win playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) which are all covered in vines. Then you have 5 animals – cobras, crocodiles, bears, elephants and tigers. The tiger is the highest value symbol gives you 150 coins for 5 on a payline.
When it comes to bonus features, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild has 3. First up is the Symbol Expansion feature – each symbol in the game (except the scatter) is marked by butterflies. If any of those symbols contribute to a winning combination, they will expand to take over that reel. This applies in the base game and Free Spins feature.
There is also a Butterfly Boost feature which is triggered randomly in the base game – butterflies fly around the reels and expand 1 to 5 symbols that take are part of a winning spin. When expanded, they take over the whole reel(s).
Finally, there’s the Free Spins feature which is played when 3 or more flower symbols appear anywhere in the base game. If you get 4 scatters, you will also win a 15 times stake bonus. If you’re lucky enough to get 5, you will win a 50 times stake bonus. Once you trigger the feature, you will play with 1,024 ways to win.
Now you need to choose 1 of 5 free spins animals – the animal you choose will be the dominant medium symbol in its respective feature as it will be the only symbol on the reels. Each animal gives you a certain amount of free spins with no more free spins to be retriggered. The options are as follows:
- Tiger – 4 free spins
- Elephant – 8 free spins
- Bear – 12 free spins
- Crocodile – 16 free spins
- Cobra – 20 free spins
Getting more free spins is also appealing but lower free spins means a higher value symbol which offer a higher win potential. For example, 5 of the tiger gives you 150 coins whilst 5 of the cobra gives you 60. I would always go for the higher risk option personally despite it giving you less free spins. You need to remember that the Symbol Expansion feature applies in the free spins so tigers part of a winning combination will expand to give full tiger reels.
I found Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild to be a medium to high variance slot with good win potential in the base game and the Free Spins feature. In the base game, you can win 1,825 times your stake on each spin whilst in the Free Spins feature, there’s a whopping 7,678 times your stake available on each free spin! Another super offering from Net Entertainment.
