Jumanji

Jumanji Slot

NetEnt’s Jumanji is a five reel and 36 payline slot based on the 1995 film of the same name. The slot’s design is clearly inspired by the movie as the backdrop is comprised of a lavish mansion while the actual slot rests on a Jumanji board game.

Just like the film, NetEnt’s slot boasts a variety of randomly triggered features to provide players with an exciting gaming experience. Some of the features include symbols sticking in place, symbols expanding to cover reels or even a rhino stampede that leaves behind extra wild symbols.

There’s also a board game feature in which players are tasked with rolling a pair of dice to move across a Jumanji board game to win cash prizes, extra spins or trigger some of the special features mentioned above. Lastly, the slot game has a mystery feature which rewards players with… well, we’re going to keep that one a mystery. 

Jumanji is one of Playtech’s most popular slots and it’s easy to understand why. The game’s randomly triggered features are fun and make the game exciting. It’s also incredibly easy to make wins with Jumanji, big and small.

The Wild Wood

The Wild Wood Slot

The Wild Wood is a Novomatic slot that features five reels, 10 paylines and is based on woodlands and the animals found there.

Throughout the game, players will spot animals such as badgers and foxes as well as plants and mushrooms. The Wild Wood features the same ordinary slot features such as wild and scatter symbols.

However, what makes The Wild Wood stand out is its extra spins feature in which the game’s theme changes from daytime to nighttime. It’s a unique and small feature but it does make the game memorable.

The Wild Woods is the perfect slot game for nature lovers and for anyone who enjoys exploring forests or woods. The visuals are great and the nighttime gameplay mechanic is unique to this slot too.

African Simba

Novomatic’s African Simba is an online slot with five reels and 200 paylines. It’s based in the African desert and features symbols of wild animals such as lions, giraffes, parrots and more.

The slot features the ordinary slot mechanics such as wild and scatter symbols which triggers extra spins. In fact, the game doesn’t have any unique or special features but it’s beautiful visually and incredibly fun to play.

African Simba is a great slot for anyone who enjoys wild animals. The game is easy to play which is great for beginners or for anyone who wants to play a simple slot.

Epic Ape

Epic Ape

Playtech’s Epic Ape online slot features six reels and over 4000 ways to win, which is unusual for a slot game. The game is based in a jungle and has symbols of apes, frogs, lizards, panthers and cheetahs.

Like most other slots, players can trigger extra spins by landing three or more scatter symbols. The number of spins players are rewarded with depends entirely on the number of scatter symbols they landed.

In addition to that, players can re-trigger the extra spins by landing the same symbols during their spins. This can keep the game going for a long time and allows players to rack up plenty of wins.

Epic Ape has an unlimited number of spins which means players have a huge change of making wins. The visuals are incredibly beautiful and the theme is pretty unique too.

Great Blue

Great Blue Slot

Great Blue is a Playtech slot inspired by the ocean and different fish. Like most other slots, the game features five reels and 25 paylines.

The game allows players to win a large number of extra spins by triggering the Great Blue bonus which is done by landing three or more Seashell scatters.

Players are also presented with a screen in which they must select two of five seashells to win additional spins and multipliers. In addition to this, players can also re-trigger the spins feature by landing another three or more seashell scatter symbols.

Great Blue is a very popular slot game that features some interesting gameplay mechanics. However, the game is high variance so it can be hard for players to land wins.

Orca

Orca Slot

Orca is a Novomatic slot that has five reels and 50 paylines. The game is based around Orcas, also known as killer whales, and we think it may have been inspired by the hit 1993 film Free Willy. 

For some reason, the game features a Mayan mask as the wild symbol which can substitute all symbols except the scatter.

Meanwhile, landing three or more of the game’s scatter symbol, a whale’s tail, will trigger the Free Games Feature and awards the player with 10 extra spins.

During the extra spins, wild symbols can appear on reels to help players create winning combinations. Meanwhile, players can receive extra spins by landing more scatter symbols.
