Adventure and slots go together like wine and cheese. And there’s nothing cheesier than a dapper explorer searching for lost treasure. No doubt you’ve already acquainted yourself with this hero on the original Jungle Jim El Dorado slot, a firm fans’ favourite. Now Jim is taking us to the next level on this follow-up slot, Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx. It’s got all things Egypt; all things treasure and all things adventure. The perfect combination! Other than cheese and wine of course.

Pros & Cons

  • Improvement on the original Jungle Jim.
  • Top quality graphics.
  • Fun cutscenes.
  • Win Booster button can be annoying.
  • Paylines take a while to get used to.
  • Not the biggest of jackpots.

How to Play

While the original slot may have looked like a Gonzo’s Quest rip-off, the sequel has been vastly improved. Instead of Jim acting as a mascot on the side, he’s now integral to the story, featuring in animations and cinematics when bonus features are activated.  Before you get to all of that though, you can take in the setting of an Egyptian landscape. Sand in the background (a lot of sand) and a temple front and centre set the scene as an Egyptian online slot, but the unique reel and payline structure and bonus features do enough to set it apart from the competition. You see directly inside where the five reels are clearly displayed. The buttons appear in a vertical row on the right of the screen all depicted by icons, such as an arrow for spin, coins for betting and the ever-famous hamburger menu button for the menu. On the left of the screen is the Win Booster, which is explained further below. Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx benefits from Avalanching Reels, so each time matching symbols form wins across a payline, they explode and more symbols fall down from above. This helps you to create more wins and enjoys an advancing multiplier as you go.

Symbols

As it’s all about searching for hidden treasures, the symbols match this theme. Gemstones in various colours – Blue, Green, Red and Orange appear as symbols, along with Treasure Chests, Pots and Ancient Books. Jungle Jim himself is the most treasured symbol, giving you 1, 2.5 or 10 times your stake for three, four of five appearances.

Bonuses

The Avalanching Reels are so good they have to come under the bonus section, because they’re so much more than just an added base game feature. And of course, there are plenty of other bonuses to enjoy too!

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Win Booster

You can place an extra bet that activates an extra Scatter, increasing your chance of triggering the Free Spins.

Avalanching Reels

As you land winning combinations, the symbols explode and new ones drop in from above until no more wins are formed. Each win you make increases the Multipliers and can also increase the paylines!

On your first spin you get x1 Multiplier and 35 paylines. After a win this increases to a x2 Multiplier, then a x3 Multiplier. After your third win you get a x4 Multiplier and up to 50 paylines, then it goes up again to x5 Multiplier and 50 paylines. Win more than five times and you get a whopping x10 Multiplier and 50 paylines!

Second Chance Respin

If you don’t get a win on the third win, you get a Free Spin to get up to the fourth level.

Free Spins

Get three or more Scatter symbols and you’re rewarded with 12 Free Spins. The paylines increase to 50 and on each spin the Multipliers increase by 3, 4, 8, 12 and then 20.
