Huge Wins Await Adventurous Bettors in NetEnt’s Jumanji Slot

NetEnt invites players to relive the much-loved Jumanji universe on the developer’s new video slot, Jumanji.

The newly launched online game is heavily inspired by its 1995 film namesake. The box-office hit revolves around Alan Parish and his friends being sucked into a fantastical jungle after playing a board game. NetEnt’s new offering aims to bring the Jumanji experience to the bettors’ screens.

Sounds of tribal drums and critters welcome the players as a chest reveals the Jumanji game. But the game will not suck players in. Instead, Jumanji brings out the jungle into the real world in the form of an online casino game. The slot features images of wild animals and thick vines. Jumanji has five reels arranged geometrically that follow an unconventional pattern of 3-4-5-4-3 rows.

Not only can players experience Parish’s adventures through the slot game, but they can also earn a ton of huge wins. The game has 36 fixed paylines with a coin value ranging from 0.01 to 20 and a theoretical return to player rate of 96.33 percent. Bettors can wager as much as 200 worth of coins for a bigger reward.

Apart from the usual letter symbols, wild beasts associated with the jungle represent different low icons. Five Pelicans on a payline pay 25 coins, while a quartet of Alligators offers 30. Meanwhile, a set of five Rhinos rewards 50 coins, and a pack of lions gives a huge prize of 140 coins.

The Jumanji Specials

Jumanji boasts a plethora of game features to entice more bettors to play the game. Some of these features are staples of usual slot games like Scattering Wilds, bet multipliers, and Sticky symbols features. However, what separates this game from generic titles are the specific bonuses that truly give players a genuine Jumanji experience.

One such feature is the Board Game, which brings out the Jumanji board game to determine the players’ fate. Three or more Scatter symbols, represented by a Jumanji-labeled chest, appearing anywhere on the reels trigger this bonus round. Players receive chances to roll two six-sided dice that determines where players will land. Different rewards rest in various boxes inside the board game, including a maximum of 10 free spins, bet multipliers, and extra rolls.

Bettors landing on the Mystery Feature box will unlock the Jumanji circle, which will decide their fate inside the game. Players will receive a reward randomly chosen by the glowing Jumanji circle. Prizes range from bet multipliers, extra dice rolls, and free spins. However, the Jumanji circle will only appear once within a Board Game session.

A Sony-NetEnt Partnership

The new slot is a result of a signed agreement between NetEnt and Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Inc. (SPCP). The company is a subsidiary of Sony Pictures Entertainment, which currently holds the rights to the Jumanji brand.

Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt chief product officer, said:

“Being able to secure a deal for another high-profile title showcases the moves we’re making in diversifying our roster of games. The original Jumanji movie, which debuted in 1995, remains a moviegoer favorite and continues to demonstrate its cross-generational appeal more than 20 years later.”

The fantasy-adventure film, starring comedian Robin Williams, is an adaptation of a children’s book of the same name. While the majority of internet reviews gave the film unfavorable scores, the filmgoers back in 1995 gave Jumanji a warm response as evidenced by the movie’s worldwide gross revenue of US$ 262.8 million.

Two decades later, the franchise still receives a warm response from movie viewers. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, earned a worldwide total of US$962 million. The 2017 sequel is the year’s fourth-most-profitable release, according to film news site Deadline Hollywood.

Bettors can now play the newly launched slot Jumanji in NetEnt-affiliated online casinos.
