About Jungle Spirit
Jungle Spirit is a beautifully themed slot by NetEnt, released in early 2017, with complex gameplay mechanics that includes up to 1024 ways to win and two expanded symbol features that can bring mega wins in the base game.
Jungle Spirit introduction, including RTP and variance
Jungle Spirit is a 243 ways to win slot game as far as the base game is concerned, and as you get an extra row during the free spins game, the number rises to 1024 ways to win during that feature.
The theoretical payout (RTP) is 96.47%, and this is a medium to high variance game that doesn’t bother you with frequent small wins, but instead pays rarely and the wins are usually significant.
There’s the potential of big wins in base game already, helped by two features that bring expanded symbols.
Jungle Spirit gameplay and paytable
Five animals are the high-paying symbols: Tiger, Elephant, Bear, Crocodile, and Cobra, as well as five low-paying card symbols. Butterflies can mark all symbols except for Scatters, and when they are, if they’re also part of a winning combination, they’ll expand to cover the entire reel.
This feature is called the Symbol Expansion feature, and it’s active in both the base game and the free spins game.
The Butterfly Boost is activated randomly in the base game only. Butterflies fly around reels and will expand 1 to 3 symbols that take part in a guaranteed winning combination. The expanded symbol will cover the entire reel and will, of course, form new winning combinations.
Despite all the nice features and 243 ways to win in the base game, Jungle Spirit’s free spins bonus is where all the magic happens.
Jungle Spirit bonus features
Three to five Scatters that appear anywhere in the base game will activate free spins. In the free spins game, you’ll get an extra row and will, therefore, have 1024 ways to win. When the free spins game is triggered, you’ll pick among five animals, and each will hold a different number of free spins, 4, 8, 12, 16 or 20.
You get to pick one option, and the variance of the free spins game will depend on your choice.
The fewer the number of free spins, the higher the variance will be.
CasinoWizard’s verdict: 3 out of 5 stars
As far as 243 ways to win slots go, Jungle Spirit is a good one, especially as you can reach 1024 ways to win in the free spins game. It’s an excellent medium variance slot that pays rather well and offers the potential of big wins in the base game already.
The slot is a bit less action-packed than it advertises on the welcome screen, as it’s meant to be played in longer playing sessions due to the infrequency of wins and the long time needed to reach the free spins game.
Nevertheless, it’s another quality title from NetEnt.
