Tarzan is a brand new video pokie game which takes you deep into the African jungle where you get a chance to see firsthand the everyday life of the king of the jungle himself, Tarzan. The game is based on a well known story which has been printed in millions of copies and had numerous movie and cartoon adaptations.
Left alone as a baby in the jungle Tarzan was raised by the apes and over time became the ruler of the jungle. One day when he meets Jane his life turns upside down and the adventures begin. Many players will see the resemblance this game has with Jungle Jim El Dorado.
The visual effects in these two games are on the same high level and the animations are simply amazing. On the left side of the reels we can see a great animation of Tarzan which just shows how advanced this video pokie game is.
Tarzan is the latest project coming from Microgaming. We noticed that the latest games coming from Microgaming have great visual effects with outstanding animations.
This is probably an attempt from Microgaming to create visually attractive pokie games which will match or surpass the ones from their rival Net Entertainment. So far they are doing a great job and we hope to see many new video pokie games from this provider in the near future.
How To Play It
Tarzan has a recognizable Microgaming design with 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 active pay lines. To be honest since this is a new video pokie game we expected to see 243 ways to win, but Microgaming decided to surprise us with the game design.
The main symbols of the game can also land covering up to 2 positions on a reel, making room for more winning combinations to occur. The bet levels can go from the minimum $0.40 up to the maximum $40 per spin. The bet size is regulated by using the Bet button and players can also use the Auto Play option for longer sessions.
When it comes to special features Microgaming is always creative with their latest releases. The game has a Wild symbol which is the Tarzan logo. It substitutes for all other symbols except for the bonus symbol. There are several bonus features in Tarzan which are all triggered by landing 3 bonus symbols on the reels.
This takes you to an upper level of the Jungle where you spin the wheel and see what feature you will win. Depending on your luck you can win cash prizes which are multipliers x your bet size, a Jackpot prize of 1,000 x bet, the Pick-a-Potamus Bonus and Free Spins.
The Pick-a-Potamus Bonus is basically a cash bonus where players need to pick some of the hippos to win cash prizes. The free spins are very interesting as they are played with a Rolling Reels feature and Growing Wilds. You will get 12 free spins and with each passing spin the Growing Wilds number increases up to a maximum of 15.
The Rolling Reels feature is very attractive to players as there are more chances of hitting a big win in a single spin. The winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will land from above the reels to fill in the empty spaces. This way the number of free spins during this bonus feature seems much bigger.
Tarzan seems like a nice mid variance video pokie game with frequent wins during base play and the potential for some big payouts during the bonus rounds. The biggest win in this game is from the Jackpot award which is equal to 1,000 x total bet. Still the game is capable of providing wins over 2,000 x total bet during the free spins bonus.
It’s great to see that Microgaming is working hard to increase their video pokie games offer and Tarzan is a very nice addition to the group. The design is great with excellent visual effects and the designers came up with an interesting bonus round.
There’s always excitement when you spin the bonus wheel waiting for it to stop on the Jackpot prize. Still our favorite part of the game is the free spins with the Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds feature.
