With each passing week we have a chance to see a new video pokie game go live by the great software provider Microgaming, or at least see some announcement for future releases. This time we had a chance to see a very nice intro video about the new video pokie game, Jungle Jim El Dorado. Not much information was shared in the teaser video that was released.
We had a chance to see some great animations of the main hero, Jungle Jim, which are sure to be transcribed to the overall game play as well.
With no images or videos of the actual spinning reels and some big wins on the screen Jungle Jim El Dorado may remain a mystery pokie, until it is officially released, if it wasn’t for one small detail.
In the video description some of the main information about the game design and bonus features were explained, leading us to believe that Jungle Jim El Dorado is actually a very similar clone game of Gonzos Quest.
Clone games are usually a big no, no for us, but on the other hand Gonzos Quest is a big yes, yes, yes. This identical design is reason enough to leave was impatient as we wait for the official release date to come.
What We love
Jungle Jim El Dorado seems like a great video pokie game as it combines the best, from the two best software providers in the world. Microgaming is known to go nuts with the maximum payouts their pokies have, so for Jungle Jim El Dorado they predict a maximum payout of 3,680 x bet, or a whopping $92,000 if you are playing on the maximum $25 bet per spin.
We also love the bigger pay line number in Jungle Jim El Dorado, which is set at 25 instead of the original 20 in his twin brother Gonzo. This should make the rolling reels design fit much better in to the consecutive wins needed for big payouts.
As in the original version the increasing multipliers for each consecutive win are in place starting from x1 and ending with x5. We also love the bonus round as it keeps the original concept.
A total of 10 free spins will be awarded, with a chance to re-trigger, if 3 scatters land on a pay line, on the first 3 reels. The multipliers have an increased payout in the free spins bonus, which is tripled, making them start with the minimum x3 and end with the maximum x15.
What we Do not Like
The already tested concept and design of the overall pokie and bonus features leaves very little or no room at all for potential flaws.
We don’t think there will be any nasty hidden surprises in Jungle Jim El Dorado, so we will have to wait for it to go live, just to be sure.
If you’ve ever had a big win in the free spins bonus on Gonzos Quest, then you will expect the same or even bigger payouts to happen on Jungle Jim El Dorado.
The game play and concept is perfect, with a big winning potential waiting to be unleashed in the bonus round.
We can recommend Jungle Jim El Dorado for real play once it is released and we will be among the first to try it out for real play as well.
