Jungle Spirit slots
With the Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild Slot from NetEnt, it’s off to the jungle this time – as the name suggests. The wild animals of the jungle – snakes, tigers and elephants – are the focus of this exciting slot game. NetEnt relies on well-made 3D animations as well as a multitude of exciting additional features for Jungle Spirit.
Jungle Spirit slot review
The Jungle Spirit Slot is based on five reels, each with three rows. Unlike most other slots, there are no classic paylines here. You win if at least three of the same symbols appear on three reels, one next to the other from left to right. This results in 243 different ways to make profits. As with most NetEnt slots, the player can set a bet level and a coin value per round. This results in a minimum bet of €0.20 per game round. You can risk a maximum of 100 € per shoot. Of course, this slot also has the popular Auto Play function.
The Return To Player percentage for this slot is given by the manufacturer Netent as a very good 97%. Other NetEnt slots with similarly high RTP are Blood Suckers 2 or Joker Pro.
Jungle Spirit bonus spins
One of the extras in the Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild Slot is the Symbol Expansion feature. Symbols are randomly marked with a butterfly. If one of these symbols is part of a winning combination, the symbol expands over the entire reel and can thus significantly increase the winnings from a game round.
Additionally there is the Butterfly Boos feature. In the basic game, butterflies fly randomly over the reels and expand between one and five symbols. These selected symbols then expand across the entire reel, increasing your chances of winning.
The game also has a flower symbol which acts as a scatter. If the scatter appears three times, the free spin feature is activated. In free spins, you win if two symbols appear on two adjacent reels. This even results in 1024 profit opportunities. Before the free spins start, you must select a pet icon. This symbol is then the symbol most likely to appear. There are fewer free spins for higher value symbols, but the chances of winning are correspondingly higher. Let’s look at the number of free spins per symbol in detail:
- Tiger: 4 free spins
- Elephant: 8 free spins
- Bear: 12 free spins
- Crocodile: 16 free spins
- Cobra: 20 free spins
Unfortunately, the free spins cannot be reactivated in free play mode itself, since the scatter does not appear. However, it should also be mentioned that the Expansion feature icon can also be randomly activated in free play mode.
Jungle Spirit Call of the Wild RTP is 97%
Jungle Spirit mobile slot
NetEnt has also launched a mobile version of this slot for smartphones and tablets. Due to the relatively simple gameplay, this slot can be used very well on the road. Simply select the game in the mobile NetEnt casino of your choice via the game lobby. A rotation can be activated simply by clicking on the large arrow on the right. If you want to adjust your bets as well as your bet levels beforehand, you can do so in the menu at the bottom right.
Well done, but without fireworks
The Jungle Spirit Slot will probably not become a NetEnt classic. But the game simply lacks that certain something. Graphically, the slot is well implemented. The 3D animations after a winning round are particularly positive to mention. Regarding the gameplay, the slot offers a lot of excitement due to the two butterfly features as well as the free spins.
But we are still missing one or the other bonus game. Here the NetEnt development team was much more innovative with other slots. For us, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild only has an average rating because we are used to higher standards with NetEnt slots.
