Jungle Jim Slots

Jungle-JimJungle Jim is a jungle themed slot machine, where the action revolves around a treasure seeking hero, an expert in the ways of the jungle and on how you should deal with the many dangerous animals that you can find once you enter such a forest. It’s a cartoon style game, with plenty of likeable characters and with lots of dangerous creatures as well, the game trying its hardest to show you all the things that could go wrong once you enter the jungle. It comes from Microgaming, and it seems to do its job of entertaining the player quite well.

5 reels are placed in Jungle Jim, with a maximum of 15 lines available. You can activate as many as you want, but you should use them all if you want the best shot at the $20,000 jackpot. There are wild symbols in Jungle Jim, scatters, bonus games and free spins with very high multipliers (up to 5x).

Features of Jungle Jim

The game’s list of features starts with the wild symbol, followed by the scatter that will give you prizes, and by the bonus symbol that brings you a feature out of which you can take up to 10 free games and 5x multipliers.

The wild symbol is the one with the tree house and the surrounding jungle. There are a couple of ways that you can take advantage of this particular feature. One of them is when you line-up 2 to 5 symbols on the same active line, from left to right. In that case, you will get paid between 10x and 4,000x the line wager. Another way would be to rely on the wild’s substitution ability, which allows it to replace a regular symbol if its appearance is in the exact location where that other symbol is needed. The only ones that wilds can’t replace here are the scatter and the bonus symbols.

Speaking of the scatter, the image of a drum with wooden sticks is used for this particular feature. The only role of a scatter in this case is to give you access to a prize, which multiplies the total bet with 3x to 75x, depending on the number of randomly placed symbols of this type that you get (3 to 5 needed).

Bonus Game with Free Spins

The bonus game has its own symbol that will trigger it, the one with the crocodile in it and the word Bonus in the middle. These are not scatters, so they have to be on active lines with the 3 to 5 symbols that are needed. Once again, you get paid by multiplying the total bet, this time by 5x to 50x, and then you get the bonus game.


The bonus game allows you to choose from the five colored alligators that are in the water. You can get a maximum of 10 spins for free out of this feature, and the multipliers for all the wins will be at 5x (which explains why there aren’t that many spins for free).

Betting options and jackpots

1 to 150 coins can be used in a bet placed in Jungle Jim. The 15 lines each accept 1 to 10 coins, and denominations go from $0.01 to $0.50. The line bet reaches $5, while the total is at $75.

With the help of the wild symbol, the top reward is worth 4,000x, so up to $20,000.

Design and symbols

The theme is good enough, especially the way Microgaming approached its design, plus you have some decent characters on the reels and symbols with dangerous creatures that actually look scary. The cartoon style of the drawing softens them up somewhat, but it’s still a game that shows you the scary part of the jungle, no cute and fuzzy critters here. The reels take up most of the screen, so you don’t get to see much of the jungle that is placed behind the game area.


Symbols: Tree House Jungle (wild, 4,000x), Alligator (bonus, 50x bet), Wood Drum (scatter, 75x bet), Jim (1,500x), Professor (750x), Lady (500x), Panther (400x), Snake (200x), Spider (150x), Piranha (100x) and Venus Flytrap (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

It looks like a fun slot machine, the theme being a big contributor to this impression, along with some of its features. I also love the high multiplier of those free spins, so I’d recommend you try Jungle Jim out.

You will find Jungle Jim at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
