How to Play Jungle Spirit Slot?
Unlike most modern video slots, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild does not feature any bet lines. Instead, it has 243 bet ways, one to five bet levels (20 coins per level) and a range of coin values. During Free Spins your odds of winning increase from 243 to 1024 due to an extra row that appears in this bonus game only. The bet level can be selected by using the provided slider and the coin value by using the coin value slider. If you are more of the sit back and relax type, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild has you covered. Autospin will automatically spin the reels for the number of selected games.
Information regarding winning combinations and payouts are given in the paytable. Matching symbols that appear in any position on three or more adjacent reels (starting from far left to far right) constitute a winning combination. Only the longest combination per matching symbol gets paid.
More bet ways are created when matching symbols appear within the same reel that forms part of the longest matching symbol combination. The slot also does not have a wild, which means that all winning combinations have to be pure matching symbols.
Additional Game Features
As previously mentioned, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild does not actually have a wild. However, some of its other unique features include Butterfly Boost, Symbol Expansion and Free Spins.
Free Spins: A free spins round is triggered when 3 to 5 scatters (represented by the Lotus flower) appear anywhere on the reels during the base game. Free spins cannot be retriggered during a free spins round. This is also no regular free spins game. Upon the start of the free spins round, you have to choose one of five animals. Each of the animals awards you with a number of free spins (the tiger the least with 4 and the cobra the most with 20). The fewer the free spins, the higher the risk. But this risk also comes with higher winning potential. During the free spins round, the game gains an extra row, increasing the bet ways up to 1024.
Symbol Expansion: Every symbol except the scatter has the possibility of getting marked by butterflies. Whenever a symbol marked with a butterfly takes part in a winning combination (in the main game as well as Free Spins), it expands to fill the entire reel.
Butterfly Boost: Butterflies fly around the reels and expand up to three symbols that take part in guaranteed winning combinations.
The opening screen of this slot places you smack in the middle of the jungle with statues of wild animals all around. Blues and greens dominate your screen with ferns and other greenery making their presence known at every corner of the screen. Fireflies floating around add to the magic of it all. The symbols and reels are set in an ornate frame against a dark green background. On top of the reels, right in the middle, the slot’s name appears.
This slot has 5 medium win symbols. They are the tiger, elephant, bear, crocodile and the cobra. They are listed from highest paying to lowest. The symbols themselves are very detailed and look almost as if they could come alive at any second, ready to pounce. Low win symbols include the card values A, K, Q, J and 10. Even these low win symbols were exquisitely designed.
