WMS has been creating animal-themed video slots for quite some time now. Perhaps it is that confidence and acclaim from the public that saw them introduce Jungle Wild 2 on 1st January 2014. It has become quite a sensation among slot lovers since then. A fact that you will appreciate if you get to give it a shot. Especially so, if you manage to get to the free spins part, where all the fun is. Anyway, let us not put the cart before the horse. Here is a step-by-step outline of what to expect.
The game is a sequel to the initial Jungle Wild slot played across multiple online slot machines. A few twists are easily notable by those who have had some experience with its predecessor. However, a few things remain constant, such as the assured two-wild reels for each of the bonus games. One thing that stands out, in contrast, is the new and better performing burst game engine. It comes with a noteworthy 60 paylines capable of taking a promotional stake of 30 credits.
The setting is in a jungle, as mentioned earlier. In there, you will find parrots, butterflies, exotic flowers, and monkeys. Like the flowers, the parrots come in a myriad of colors blue, red, and yellow. Quite a sight to behold, all thanks to the quality graphics utilized in the video slots. Some golden Aztec symbols grace the jungle as well as a temple. In terms of reels, expect a 5x3 layout with 30 paylines that come with one bonus game. Just practice some patience, and within no time, you will be raking in admirable prizes.
As mentioned earlier, this is one of the online slots that require the player to practice lots of patience. Often you will make long walks in the jungle without finding anything of value. However, in good times, you might get up to 60x of what you have. Most of the times, though, multipliers range within 20-25x. Therefore, you better hope to land on some free spins during the base gameplay. At all times, be on constant lookout for the temple. It represents the scatter and activates the bonus game, which comes up with some tasty goodies.
One might wonder, why all the hype? Well, the free spins usually come with some stacked wilds. Once again, the issue of endurance pops up. You have to do an average 50-100 spins on the video slots to land free spins. Should you land the scatter symbol anywhere on reels 3, 4, or 5, you earn 5, 7, and 20 free spins respectively. During these free spins, wilds stack up across the five reels, plus every spin bears a possible two permanently stacked wilds of the initial five. Considering you can get 60x of the amount wagered and beyond, this is quite the gamble.
A few critics out there indicate that the game is not that interesting. Well, maybe that could be due to its low-risk nature. Most players do like fast-paced video slots and Jungle Wild II lacks in this. Quite conveniently, though, it makes up for that shortcoming with a reasonably good theme and free spins that pay out plenty of times. It is also a good slot for those starting to play and adventure lovers. Again, the 60 lines with a discounted credit of 30 are quite an offer.
The online slot machines hosting this game boast a medium variance suitable for all cadres of players. That also translates to an RTP of 95.96% that is considered favorable for the player too. As for the maximum expected win, it can go up to 1500 coins. Another good thing worth mentioning is the slot’s compatibility across many devices. The slot is not reliant on Flash player so you just need a browser and internet connectivity on any device. Once you have the two, you can enjoy for as much as you like. Due to this fact, players can enjoy engaging gameplay no matter their location. So long as there is internet connectivity, everything else works quite smoothly, and so is the transition.
