Jungle Jim And The Lost Sphinx Slot Review – Microgaming / Stormcraft Studios

Microgaming has been mainly focused on working with smaller studios this year. They have helped produce a lot of games, some successful and some just did not make the cut for the casino community. This includes ‘A Dark Matter and ‘9 Masks Of Fire. Both games are unique and show Microgaming can still produce good quality games. Now we have a new creation from Stormcraft Studios / Microgaming. This new game is a sequel from an old favorite. This new release is titled ‘Jungle Jim And The Lost Sphinx’ and available to play now across all sites.

The original Jungle Jim was released in 2016 and titled ‘Jungle Jim El Dorado’. Stormcraft studios did already produce a Microgaming sequel. This was for Agent Jane, however ‘Agent Jane Blond Returns’ did not live up to expectations and could have been better. Now Stormcraft Studios have a second opportunity to master a new sequel. Jungle Jim has an adventure theme, this time-based in the deserts. Compared to in the jungle for the original release. Visually the background is very basic and could show a lot more for this new adventure. Another note is the reel set is quite small and is not close up to the screen. Visuals are well made and do have good detail though.

Jungle Jim And The Lost Sphinx has a setup of 5 reels by 4-5 rows, this includes 35-50 set pay lines.  This game is medium–high variance due to the max win capped at 6,250x and set RTP of 96.10% – 96.30%. You can bet from £0.10 – £80.

Jungle Jim And The Lost Sphinx Slot Review Paytable & Symbols

This game has 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by blue, green, orange and red gems. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by vases, boxes, books, and Jim. There is also a scatter symbol, jungle Jim wild and sphinx symbol. The most valuable symbol is Jim which pays, 10x for 5 across a pay line.

Jungle Jim And The Lost Sphinx Slot Review Features

You can activate a ‘Win Booster’, which will unlock an extra scatter to increase your chances of triggering the free spins feature. One key element in this game is ‘Rolling Reels’, You can get multiple consecutive wins with these reels. Winning symbols are removed for new symbols to replace. This feature is in both the base game and free spins feature. In the base game, there is a ‘Multiplier Trail’. This is 5 multipliers that are at the top of the reel set. The trail will advance for each consecutive roll. The rewards for this trail are;

  • Initial Spin – 1x multiplier at 35 Pay lines.
  • Roll 1 – x2 Multiplier.
  • Roll 2 – x3 Multiplier.
  • Roll 3 – x4 Multiplier and upgrade to 50 pay lines.
  • Roll 4 – x5 multiplier.
  • Roll 5+ – x10 Multiplier.

There is also a ‘Second Chance Respin’ if no win is awarded on roll 3 a second chance is awarded. The reels will re-spin without resetting the trail.

Free Spins

Central to this game is the ‘Free Spins Feature’. This is activated when you land 3 or more scatters during one spin. In this feature, you have a different multiplier trail, with 6 bigger multipliers. The rewards for this new trail are;

  • Initial Spin – x2 multiplier and 50 pay lines.
  • Roll 1 – x3 multiplier.
  • Roll 2 – x4 multiplier.
  • Roll 3 – x8 multiplier.
  • Roll 4 – 12x multiplier.
  • Roll 5 + – 20x multiplier.

During spins there are also Sphinx symbols, these appear on reel 3 and are collectible. When removed from the reel it causes a roll. Every symbol collected awards an extra spin and upgrades the multiplier trail.

Conclusion

Overall, I think this is a good remake this time around. However, there are so many features big and small compacted into this one game. I think there is a simpler way to still have these features and still have high variance included. Either way, I enjoyed playing this game.
