NetEnt's New Branded Jumanji Slot Releasing TodayPublished June 21, 2018 by Ivan P
The Jumanji slot by NetEnt is based on the cult 1995 movie and it combines the original story, great graphics, and a variety of features to create a memorable gaming experience.
A while ago, NetEnt announced they were developing Jumanji, a branded casino slot based on the popular movie franchise, promising a visually appealing and feature-rich game. Up to this point, we saw a few teasing gameplay videos but now the wait is finally over as the new Jumanji slot will be coming out today, launching on a number of NetEnt-powered online casinos.
Exciting Visual Setup
The company took the time necessary to create a game that truly reflects the spirit of the 1995 cult movie in every aspect, starting with the sound and visuals. The slot features a somewhat unusual 3-4-5-4-3 reel setup with 36 paylines across, with the reels populated by lions, rhinoceros, monkeys, pelicans, crocodiles, and more.
Adding to the atmosphere are the soundtrack with loud drum beats, sounds of the jungle wild life, as well as entertaining and colorful animations accompanying wins and special features, both of which are found in abundance in the Jumanji slot.
Wild Animals in Action
Jumanji is packed with various special features so there is something happening on the reels almost all the time. There are four base-game features that trigger randomly and apart from boosting players' winning chances, all of these features are nicely animated.
Monsoon Wilds will turn one or two reels completely wild; Wild Stampede will see a crash of rhinos running across the reels, leaving wild symbols behind; the Monkey Mayhem feature will bring out little monkeys from the hiding and have them shuffle the symbols around, while Sticky Vines will lock winning symbols on the reels, awarding additional re-spins.
The game's main feature, the Board Game, perfectly corresponds with the theme, as it will take you to a different screen where you'll have to play a game of Jumanji. You'll get to throw two dice and move across the board, earning cash prizes, mystery wins, and potentially unlocking one of four free spins features.
Whether or not you're a fan of the original movie or the 2017 sequel, the Jumanji slot promises a lot of entertainment and it is really a treat for the eyes. The game is set to release today and you should be able to find it at many NetEnt casinos out there if you want to be among the first to take it for a test ride.
