Jewel of the Jungle is a 5 reel, 50 payline slot which has been produced by NextGen Gaming in collaboration with GamesLab. Playable on all devices from 50p to £100 per spin, this jungle themed game is all about the grouped wild and free spins feature.

Visually, you are then deep into the jungle with high definition graphics – symbols on the feels include flora and fauna with plants, flowers, lizards, butterflies, snakes, monkeys, toucans and frogs. You also have the yellow and red parrots which give you 500 coins for 5 on a payline. The highest value symbol is the leopard which gives you 1,000 coins for 5 in combination. The soundtrack sounds like a tribal chant.

The diamond symbol is the wild and it’s a grouped wild that appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 – it also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. That scatter is the waterfall – 3 or more will trigger the Free Games feature where you’ll receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins.

During the feature, more diamond wild symbols are added to the reels to increase your winning potential – if you get 3 diamonds on a free spin, you will win an additional 5 free spins taking your potential total to 25.

Jewel of the Jungle looks good and has a rewarding Free Games feature due to the added wilds – saying that, it’s quite a simple game with nothing new on offer. The variance is in the middle but there are plenty of other slots which offer a lot more in my opinion – if the jungle theme appeals to you, Jungle Jim El Dorado by Microgaming is recommended.
