The new Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx online pokie is officially set to arrive at some of our most highly recommended Kiwi online casinos early next month (November 2019). This game was developed exclusively for Microgaming by an independent studio called Stormcraft Studios, and it’s the sequel to another popular online pokie called Jungle Jim – El Dorado (released in September 2017).
The original Jungle Jim pokie took players on an adventure deep in the Amazon jungle to find the lost city of gold, and this new version takes players on an adventure to ancient Egypt. It has some fantastic accompanying background audio, along with some impressive sound effects and fantastic animated sequences for players to look forward to, and it looks as though there are plenty of fun ways to win prizes.
Altogether there are 5 reels and 35 paylines, but sequential wins can increase the size of the game window by adding extra rows of symbols. On some spins, this can means that up to as many as 50 paylines are active. There’s also a Rolling Reels™ game mechanic and Increasing Multiplier that climbs with each consecutive roll. This multiplier starts out at 2X during normal play, and can then climb to 3X, 4X, 5X and 10X.
Each time a new winning combination is formed, the winning symbols will instantly disappear from view, causing more new symbols to drop down from above to fill those empty positions. If another new winning combination forms, then another free roll will be awarded, and so on. This will only stop happening when there are no more new wins in view. During the Free Spins Bonus, the Multiplier Trail can climb up to 20X!
The Free Spins Bonus can trigger when 3 or more Scatter Symbols show up on the reels at the same time, plus the game also has a Win Booster feature, which costs an extra 50% per spin, but will unlock an extra Scatter Symbol to improve your chances of trigger the main Free Spins Bonus. Keep an eye out for the Sphinx Symbol during the bonus, because collecting at least 6 of these from the middle reel gets you an extra cascade/free spin.
Make sure that you’re one of the first New Zealand players to try out the new Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx as soon as it arrives next month, by heading over to Jackpot City Casino, Royal Vegas Casino or All Slots Casino today and registering your free account if you haven’t already.
