Meet the “younger brother” of Gonzo from Gonzo’s Quest slot in the new Microgaming release Jungle Jim El Dorado. How do we know that they are related? Well, we don’t, but the similarities between the two games are quite obvious. Both slots are adventure-themed games set in Eldorado; the gameplay and main character behaviour are practically identical with the only difference that the Jim guy looks, let’s say, slightly more attractive and young. In this review, we will check the game’s features and see which online casinos are already offering this new game while giving casinohawks.com readers some lovely welcome bonuses.
The game has 5 reels and 25 paylines which is 5 paylines more than in Gonzo’s Quest. The symbols are all Aztec themed and beautiful – they are treasures after all. So here you will see some rubies, emeralds, sapphires, different statues and treasure chests as well as Aztec masks and blue serpent.
The wild symbol is the Jungle Jim game logo itself, and it is doing what it’s supposed to be doing – replacing all other symbols for the better winning combinations.
One of the most interesting features as well as the most similar to the Gonzo’s Quest if the Rolling Reels. It basically means cascading reels or, as it is called in the NetEnt’s game, the Avalanche feature.
Visually the reels do not spin, but instead, the symbols that took part in any winning combo disappear from the screen giving way to the new symbols that appear instead.
What rolling reels mean to the player is even more exciting – every consecutive win gives you a chance to win more and more. This is due to the so-called Multiplier Trail. Every time you win something, the multiplier increases as well, so your winnings can grow pretty big pretty fast.
The Free Spins feature here is quite generous as well – you can receive up to 20 free spins in total. At first, you get 10 free spins, but if you manage to land 3 scatters during the free spins feature, 10 more spins will be awarded on top of that.
But the best part is that the Rolling Reels and the Multiplier Trail work here too, so your multiplier can potentially grow up to x15. Initial free spins win comes with already not too bad x3 multiplier, but as the wins keep coming your way, the multiplier will go up to x6, x9, x12 and finally x15. The maximum you can win in the free spins feature is 3,680 (yes, really!) times your stake.

We have collected the links to the most trustworthy and generous casinos that offer our readers exclusive massive casino bonuses up to £1,500. You can score more than 400 free spins as well.

You can play Jungle Jim slot starting from a minimum bet of 25p and up to a maximum bet of £25 per spin. The game has a decent jackpot of 8,000 coins and a pretty high return to player percentage set at 97.00%, and a hit rate is 43%. The game has a medium to high volatility, and you can win an amazing 3,680 times thanks to the free spins and x15 multiplier feature.
Design-wise the game is superb and extremely similar to Gonzo’s Quest. While the colourful treasure symbols are appearing and disappearing on the screen, Jim stays on the left with his multitude of cool gadgets and makes some silly moves depending on how well you’re doing with your wins. The overall design is great as you see a lot of luscious green shades of the Jungle in the background and very detailed, beautiful treasure symbols. The separate screen is a golden room which also looks absolutely fantastic and makes you actually want to go and find that precious gold yourself.
We are only slightly confused about the incredible similarities between Gonzo’s Quest and Jungle Jim. But overall the game is really worth trying especially if you liked the original NetEnt masterpiece. The design is fabulous, and the winnings can go quite high especially if you get lucky during the free spins around and manage to score that x15 multiplier.
