Would Jungle Jim Survive In NetEnt’s Jungle?

Jungle Jim is one of the faces of Microgaming and it’s no wonder. Jungle Jim: El Dorado is one of the most popular online slots around, offering as much adventure as rewards. But is Jungle Jim heroic enough to last in NetEnt’s jungle? That of Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild?

The Jungle Grudge Match

Jungle Jim: El Dorado is a five reel, 25 pay-line slot that includes us in the action from the very beginning. Jim, or Jimmy to his friends, stands by the side of the reels, helping us as we spin the reels and traverse through mystical lands on our way to treasure. We’ve also got Microgaming’s Rolling Reels™ to help us keep winning, Free Spins which offer up to 20 free spins and the Multiplier Trails which keep adding up our value.

NetEnt’s jungle is very different. It’s more akin to Jungle Book with animals on the reels and a heavier focus on the jungle itself, and the animals therein. This slot has five reels but loads more pay-lines. 243, to be exact. The Free Spins feature lets us choose from five animals to see how many spins we land, while the randomly triggered Butterfly Boost does just what it says, expanding symbols across the reels to create more winning combinations.

Two Very Different Jungles

It’s difficult to say if Jungle Jim would survive in NetEnt’s jungle. We think he’s more cut out for adventure rather than tiger taming. The animals would eat him alive. Probably even the elephant. However, Microgaming’s slot does boast better graphics and a more interactive playing experience compared to NetEnt’s jungle offering. Saying that though, NetEnt also counteract this with Gonzo’s Quest, another explorer type game, mascot character and bonus features. So, the real fight should be between Jim and Gonzo. Who will win that?
