Jungle Jim El Dorado Slot
Gonzo's Que- … sorry … Jungle Jim El Dorado is a 5-reel, fixed 25-pay line online slot from Microgaming. It features an explorer who ventures into the Amazon in the quest for treasure. It also features symbols that tumble into place rather than spin, avalanche wins, and an ascending mutliplier scale as your cascade wins mount up.
Now, if you're au fait with the realm of online slots games, then you may well be saying "hold on one cotton-picking moment, this all sounds very familiar!" You'd certainly understand our initial confusion, as this game is almost a carbon copy of a very popular online slots game – indeed one of the most popular of all time – designed by NetEnt. We are not accusing Microgaming of plagarism (as our lawyers have instructed us not to) but this is as close a 'tribute' to that popular online slots game as you could possibly get.
Anyhow, our hero in this game is not a pint-sized Spanish conquistador. He's something of a matinee idol who watches the tumbling reels from the left-hand side of the screen. Inhabiting the reels are jewels and various Inca-style artifacts. There are twenty-five lines, and this is a fixed number. You pay between 0.01 and 1.00 for each line – the choice is yours. When you're ready to begin your quest for jackpots, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest possible payout in this game is for three green or blue gems. That will win you three coins. The jackpot in normal play is for five glowing treasure chests, which will win you three thousand coins.
As stated above, when you land a winning combo the symbols involved vanish, and other symbols cascade down to replace them. Each time this happens a multiplier advances one place – from 1x to 2x and so on until it reaches 5x. When your cascading wins end, the multiplier resets to 1x.
An Inca-style symbol acts as the scatter, and if you land three or more anywhere on the reels you will win ten free spins. During free spins each level of the cascade multiplier is tripled, so it now runs from 3x to 15x. Free spins can be re-triggered.
The 'Jungle Jim' symbol is wild in this game. It substitutes for all symbols aside from the free spins scatter symbol.
Well, there you go. We've really nothing to say except that this is Gonzo's Quest … just not nearly as charming.
