New Game: Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx Online Slot

Online slot game fans know Jungle Jim. He is the handsome British adventurer who made his debut in 2016. That El Dorado adventure left players wanting Jim to return, and he is now back.

Microgaming took Jim out of the jungle and into the Egyptian desert to find the lost sphinx. And during the first week of November, Microgaming presented the game developed by Stormcraft Studios: Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx.

Not Just Any Slot Game

The game is so highly anticipated that Stormcraft Studios put together several videos to explain how the game was made and what to expect. Executive Producer Terence Igesund explained the remaking of Jungle Jim in 3D to give him more movement and personality in the new game.

Igesund then explained how the game works and how the Win Booster improves the game’s RTP and the frequency of free spins. Also, he explained the changes to Jim’s appearances throughout the game.

The third video from Stormcraft allows Jim to answer some questions from fans. Jungle Jim really comes to life and his personality shines. He talks about his journey to Egypt and even promotes his own Instagram account.

Microgaming Director of Global Operations James Buchanan expressed excitement about the return of Jungle Jim. “The combination of innovative game mechanics and a graphically rich visual experiences makes this latest installment of Jungle Jim a game not to miss!”

About Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx

The base game starts with a 5-reel game with four rows and 35 paylines. However, when a player wins three times in a row, the game automatically upgrades to a 5×5 set of reels with 50 paylines.

Players can win up to 6,300 times the wager for a $125,000 payday.

Bets can be as low as $0.10, which requires the coin size be set at $0.01 and one coin per line. The highest best is $0.50 coin size and four coins per line for a $20.00 bet per spin (or $80.00 by turning on the Win Booster). Players can also choose quick bets of $5, $10, $15, or $20.

The payouts for the symbols, when set at the lowest bet and hitting five on a payline, are as follows:

  • Scatter = $2.00
  • Jungle Jim = $1.00
  • Book = $0.50
  • Trunk = $0.40
  • Vase = $0.25
  • Red or yellow gem = $0.12 each
  • Green or blue gem = $0.10 each

The Jungle Jim logo serves as the wild and can substitute for all symbols except scatters and sphinxes.

How to Play Jungle Jim and the Lost Spinx

As mentioned, play starts with a 5×4 setup and base game multipliers above the reels of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, and 10x. The multipliers advance with each consecutive roll.

  • Initial spin = 1x multiplier with 35 lines
  • Roll 1 = increases to 2x multiplier
  • Roll 2 = increases to 3x multiplier
  • Roll 3 = increases to 4x multiplier and upgrades to 50 lines
  • Roll 4 = increases to 5x multiplier
  • Roll 5 = increases to 10x multiplier

If no win happens on the third roll, a second chance respin is awarded.

When three or more scatters appear on a spin, the player wins 12 free spins. That bonus round comes with all new multipliers:

  • Initial spin = 2x multiplier with 50 lines
  • Roll 1 = increases to 3x multiplier
  • Roll 2 = increases to 4x multiplier
  • Roll 3 = increases to 8x multiplier
  • Roll 4 = increases to 12x multiplier
  • Roll 5 = increases to 20x multiplier

Players should look for golden sphinx symbols, which will appear on the third (middle) reel. They produce a roll and collect atop the reels to award the additional spins and upgrade the multipliers.

Players can use the Win Booster to the left of the reels. By clicking it, players agree to a 4x larger bet size, but it activates an extra scatter and increase the chances of triggering free spins.

Look for Break da Bank Again Respin

Just a few months ago, Microgaming released the third installment in its Break da Bank series of online slots developed by Gameburger Studios. It has been a huge hit so far and remains a top pick for players.

The 5-reel slot offers nine paylines and features Hyperspins, a paid respin feature that takes the game excitement up another notch. There are also scatters that trigger up to 25 free spins, multipliers up to 25x, and wilds that increase multipliers.

Break da Bank Again Respin offers more action than most online slots.
