The words gold and jungle usually suggest thoughts of buried treasure or even Aztec gold. But with IGT we are actually heading to the deepest part of the Indian jungle and hoping to avoid the creatures that lurk within. Welcome to the Golden Jungle, so called for the treasure you are searching for and be wary of that Tiger prowling around the reels.
Golden Jungle is a 5-reel, 50 fixed pay line slot that offers you, the player a variable RTP of 92.85% to 96.20%. Your reels are set in a golden gilt-edged frame and surrounded by lush greenery. The soundtrack tinkling along in the background leaves a lot to be desired. Our advice is to switch the sound of whilst in play otherwise it can get a bit annoying.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Golden Jungle begins at £50 per spin and can be increased to £250 per spin, making Golden Jungle not as affordable for all pockets as you would like. As with most set ups you can find the bet amount to the left of the spin, simply press the plus or minus sign to amend your bet to suit your needs.
Wild Symbol – Beware of the Tiger symbol lurking in the dark but be happy when he arrives as he is your wild symbol. He will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols and is also your highest paying symbol too. Offering a x2000 coin win for landing 5 on a winning pay line.
Scatter Symbol – An ornate set of gold gates are your scatter symbol, land 3 or more of these anywhere in view to trigger the bonus spins. There are a few variations available on the bonus spins game which are dependent upon the number of scatters you land.
Wild Stays Feature – Golden Jungle has a third special symbol in play and it is a golden god which triggers this special feature. At the top of every reel is a meter that fills up each time a golden god symbol lands on a specific reel. Once one set is complete the reel below will turn wild and stay that way for x4 spins. Multiple reels can turn wild at the same time if spaces fill up quickly, so this can prove to be a profitable feature.
Bonus Spins Feature – 3 or more golden gate symbols will activate this feature, but there is a little twist to it too. The number of scatters you land will determine which out of the following options you are given:
3 scatters will award:
- 15 bonus spins with reel 3 turned wild,
- 6 bonus spins with reels 2 and 4 turned wild,
- 2 bonus spins with reels 1, 3 and 4 turned wild.
4 scatters will award:
- 30 bonus spins with reel 3 turned wild,
- 12 bonus spins with reels 2 and 4 turned wild,
- 4 bonus spins with reels 1, 3 and 4 turned wild.
5 scatters will award:
- 75 bonus spins with reel 1 turned wild,
- 30 bonus spins with reels 2 and 4 turned wild,
- 10 bonus spins with reels 1, 3 and 4 turned wild.
Golden Jungle delivers on more than one side, the only negative we can really find is the cost per spin. It is rather on the high side, so you will need to have a high balance in order to sustain any length of play with this slot. The positives are there though in way of a very interesting bonus spins round and an even more exciting wild reels feature. Overall the game offers fairly regular wins in both the main game and the bonus, and it is easy on the eye too meaning boredom won’t set in too soon.
