Generation Z will only know the role model for this slot game from the latest version with The Rock, which currently seems to stir up quite a few remakes (Baywatch, anyone?). But this film was nothing less than one of the kickstarters for Kirsten Dunst's career. Robin Williams is also unforgettable in his role as Alan Parrish, who was lost in the board game - and the idea is really extraordinary: while playing a magical board game, young Alan is sucked into the jungle and has to survive there until almost thirty years later someone else will play the game dares to play. Of course, the slot game is also gripping and realistic - but luckily you don't get sucked into it.
Rules of the game: That's how it works
The background of this slot is based on the film itself. It is reminiscent of the board of the bewitched game; In addition, the bookshelf, refrigerator, chandelier and other furnishings from the Parrishes' house can be seen on the outside. Authenticity was obviously important to the makers. The structure of the rollers is unusual: instead of forming a perfect rectangle, the five rollers are of different lengths. The outer two have only three symbol fields, the inner two have four and the middle roller has five symbol fields. The letter symbols are in the same colors as the Jumanji movie logo and the characters you encounter on the more valuable tiles represent obstacles from the game, namely pelicans, rhinos, lions and crocodiles. The following should be known before placing the first bets:
Jumanji: Those are the features
Wilds are Jokers - this is where the Jumanji slot is not very different from other slot games. Other features such as the Sticky Vines are innovative: They are activated as soon as winnings appear on two betting lines. The result: there are new spins, which as a player are generally happy about. Winning symbols and wilds remain stuck, so that the next time the reels lock, the chance of winning naturally increases. The re-spins are only over when the entire playing field is full of winning symbols. The monkey gang comes out with the Monkey Mayhem: After all potential prizes have been awarded, the symbols are shuffled. This then results in a guaranteed profit, which, however, always turns out differently. In the Monsoon Wilds, it rains wilds until one or two reels are covered. And with the wild stampede feature, rhinos rumble through the field, so that fresh wind is brought into the reels and 4-9 additional wilds appear. Of course, the Jumanji slot also has a board game special! That is the special function of the Scatters in this game. In the board game, you can let the dice roll and, for example, clear away free spins, coin wins or additional throws.
A real honor for the film
Jumanji was a hit at the time - so NetEnt really had to make an effort to keep up with the blockbuster with its slot machine adaptation. And it worked: Jumanji is a varied slot game with lots of fresh ideas and a nice chance to win.
