Get ready, this April we're unleashing Jumanji to 32Red Casino!
Mischievous monkeys, rampaging rhinos, and violent vines - it can mean only one thing - Jumanji has arrived. With enough features to fill a zoo, here’s a 3-4-5-4-3 reel layout that’ll bring out your animal instincts.
Game features include free spins, Wild Stampede, Monsoon Wilds, Monkey Mayhem, and Sticky Vines. But what do they all mean? Strap on your boots, adjust your monocle and get ready for a safari from your sofa. Jumanji just got real.
The Jumanji slot is based on the cinematic first, Jumanji (1995), starring Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, and Bonnie Hunt. The movie directed by Joe Johnston was based on a picture book released in 1981 by Chris Van Allsburg, also called Jumanji.
The Jumanji franchise now totals four movies: Jumanji (1995), Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017), and Jumanji: The Next Level (2019). The original movie was a game changer and saw Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) create the patented iSculpt software - for assisting in animating creature expressions - especially for the movie.
The Jumanji production not only encompassed never-before-seen CG sequences but also incorporated animatronics and puppetry which gave the movie a true-to-life sheen and brought the story alive to be both a box office smash and a fantastic movie.
While many people view the PG-13 Jumanji as a film for kids, Robin Williams famously commented that the movie was so scary that he wouldn’t allow his own children watch it.
Grossing over $263 million with a budget of just $63 million, while the movie received mixed to positive reviews, it was judged a financial success. To date, the Jumanji franchise has made over $2 billion in box office earnings.
Interestingly, the word ‘Jumanji’ is of Zulu origin and is believed to mean ‘many effects’
The Jumanji slot game free spins round is based closely on the in-movie Jumanji board game and comes alive with marauding monkeys and leaping, snarling crocodile stacked wilds. The attention to detail here is - true to NetEnt form - completely awe-inspiring and a total riot.
To discover the free spins round, you need to first unlock the Jumanji Board Game Bonus by landing three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. Now, it’s time to take the ancient (yet also somehow digital) dice into your hands, roll, and keep your fingers crossed.
Depending on the outcome of the dice, you’ll be enjoying these free spins:
- Stampede Free Spins - awards 5 free spins with 9 added wilds
- Vines Free Spins - awards 10 free spins with sticky wilds
- Monkey Free Spins - awards 6 free spins with respins
- Monsoon Free Spins - awards 7 free spins with stacked wilds
Needless to say, there’s a load of free spins up for grabs in Jumanji slots. Whether you’ve got the nerve to play them through is another matter.
Graphics & Audio
The Jumanji slot game graphics are next level. Not only are visuals incredibly well executed and deeply researched, but they also come alive. No, really. Through in-game animations, NetEnt has done the impossible - created a piece of media that’s even more engaging than the Jumanji movie.
Whether it’s the bonus round monkeys scrambling across the grid accompanied by hair-raising squawks or the Jumanji slot symbols created with love and respect for the original, this is a visual feast enough to satisfy even the hungriest of slot appetites.
Jumanji slot audio is faithful to the original James Horner soundtrack - all dramatic, jungle drumbeats and a menacing string section that strengthens and punctuates the on-grid action with flare.
The following symbols adorn the reels in Jumanji slots:
- Lion - land 5 for 140x multiplier
- Rhino - land 5 for 50x multiplier
- Crocodile - land 5 for 30x multiplier
- Pelican - land 5 for 25x multiplier
- A - land 5 for 10x multiplier
- K - land 5 for 9x multiplier
- Q - land 5 for 8x multiplier
- J - land 5 for 7x multiplier
While most of us (masochists excluded) wouldn’t dream of playing the Jumanji game for real, the Jumanji slot’s bonus features are far less intimidating. You also won’t need to worry about removing stubborn wildlife stains from your upholstery/carpet/priceless Persian rugs. Let’s take a look.
For an extraordinary game title, the Jumanji slot wilds function just like wilds in any other lost title. These symbols can land anywhere on the reels and substitute all other symbols, bringing you more chances to win.
Triggered randomly, the Sticky Vines feature turns all winning symbols sticky, and the same goes for wilds.
The wetter the better - making a Jumanji game splash, the monsoon wilds are stacked wilds that appear at any time during gameplay. Want a full reel of wilds? Monsoon Wilds has got this covered. Literally.
No monkeying around when it comes to the Monkey Mayhem feature. Here, the lovable little scamps get busy rearranging spin formations so you’re guaranteed a win on Jumanji slot.
Hold on to your seat, it’s a stampede! A stampede of wilds and potential big wins that is. If you see this Jumanji slot board a shakin’, it means a Wild Stampede is a makin’. With between 4 and 9 extra wilds added to the grid, the earth will move.
Is Jumani Any Good?
The 1995 movie Jumanji was the first of its kind and paved the way for productions such as 12 Monkeys, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Matrix, and Avatar. To say the film was a technical achievement is beyond an understatement.
The Jumanji slots are, luckily, just as good. Slot producers often trade off existing graphics and audio rather than adding anything valuable to the slot themselves. NetEnt does the movie justice by not only paying homage to both visuals and audio but taking it to the next level.
So immersive is the Jumanji slot that it serves to not only satisfy any Jumanji movie cravings, it pulls you into the game and makes you feel as if you’re a part of the action.
The in-game animated sequences are further proof of the deftness at which NetEnt approaches slot production and why they’re the go-to for the majority of branded slot releases. While some producers often mix off-the-shelf graphics or animations with newly produced content, here the NetEnt production fuses seamlessly with the original.
For lovers of Jumanji the movie, animal-themed slots, and those that like their games bursting with features, Jumanji slot is a ride both fulfilling and wild.
