Yggdrasil Gaming has taken Rudyard Kipling’s timeless collection of tales involving wild animals and used these as the basis for its great-looking online video slot called Jungle Books.
Jungle Books is a five-reel slot that has three rows and 58/68 paylines. It has a somewhat complex dynamic in that the gameplay, the features and the reel set that players would experience largely depend on the realm that they are playing on. There are five realms and you would know which one you’re in by the kind of animal that you would see standing off to the left. – the bear (Baloo), the panther (Bagheera), the boy (Mowgli), the tiger (Shere Khan) and the snake (Kaa). The hosts of these realms come and go at random but the previous host may also appear as a guest on the right-hand side of the reels.
Before you can go on this jungle adventure, players are advised to set their betting range. Clicking on "-+" allows setting the bet per line that ranges from 0.002 to 2. By choosing the "Autoplay" option players will set the number of times they wish for the reels to turn without interruption and "Play" button is used to set the reels in motion after setting the bets.
Jungle Books is one of the more intricate online slots that players would come across in this day and age but once they can get their head around its methods, they would see just how clever it is. All told, this slot is one that is well worth checking out. The graphics and animations are top of the line and it comes with an RTP of 96.10%.
There are six high-value symbols and these are all tropical fruit that looks very tasty. Standard playing card symbols represent the lower values. The wild symbol is a gold “Wild” and it would replace all others to form winning combos.
All the features in Jungle Books happen during the gameplay and as mentioned, they depend on the realm that you are in. There are also extra features in that realm depending on the guest to the right of the reels:
Bear (Baloo 3-3-4-3-3 reel set)
The Boy (Mowgli 3-3-4-3-3 reel set)
The Tiger (Shere Khan 3-3-4-3-3 reel set)
The Panther (Bagheera 4-3-3-3-4 reel set, 68 paylines)
The Snake (Kaa 3-4-4-4-3 reel set, 68 paylines)
If a guest appears on the right-hand side and a feature is activated by the host, it would be enhanced by whichever feature the guest triggers. For example, the boy in the realm of the snake or panther would sync reels two, three and four rather than reels one and two/three and four.
