Microgaming have just released a teaser trailer for their newly announced slot Jungle Jim El Dorado. The trailer reveals that their new slot's theme will be an Indiana Jones-esque trip to discover the treasure of El Dorado. Picture a modern reboot of Gonzo's Quest and you'll probably have a good idea of what to expect.
Microgaming also released a brief summary of what features the slot will arrive with, which we'll discuss more below. At present however, we know very little other than the slot theme and a suspected release date of some point during August.
Jungle Jim El Dorado: What We Know
Here's the aforementioned teaser trailer for Jungle Jim El Dorado:
At present we know that Jungle Jim El Dorado is offering:
- 5×3 reel slot with 25 bet lines
- Free Spins Bonus Round
- Rolling Reels Feature
- Golden Multiplier Trail – Multiplier that add 5x in base game and 15x in free spins
- Minimum bet: £0.25
- £92,000 maximum win
While some of the features are quite self explanatory, such as the free spins round, others are less clear. Thankfully, Microgaming have gone into detail about the Golden Multiplier Trail, but the Rolling Reels feature is still a complete mystery.
If we had to bet on it, we'd hazard a guess that it might be similar to the advancing reels feature found in another new slot, Poltava: Flames of War. Every time you spin a special symbol in the adjacent reel to the right, you get a free re-spin until you cover all the reels of the slot.
Based on the name rolling reels alone, we'd be confident that it could function in much the same way. But of course, we'll have to wait until next month's release, or a more in depth trailer, in order to find out more.
Look Out For Jungle Jim This August
Jungle Jim is still a ways away. Microgaming have just released Reel Spinner in time for July and they're a hard working slot maker who release several slots a month, something that very few other developers are mad enough to try and keep up. They've got a lot on their plate for July, so we don't expect it to arrive before late August.
Because it's a Microgaming slot, we're quite optimistic, even if the El Dorado theme is a dead horse that's received a lot of beating in the past. Microgaming may not set the world on fire with each release, but they know how to make a solid game that's worth trying out. When Jungle Jim does release, be sure to check it out at Microgaming casinos like Bet365, but until then, check back here and we'll do our best to keep you up to date about Jungle Jim and all the latest slot releases.
