NetEnt Releases Jumanji Slots Following 2017 Box Office Hit

After the success of the 2017 reboot, leading casino game developer NetEnt released their video slot version of Jumanji on June 21st.

NetEnt based their game off the original 1995 movie starring Robin Williams instead of last year’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” starring The Rock and Kevin Hart. The movie centers around a man trapped in a board game that comes to life as you play. The game was first announced back in January after the Sweden based studio signed an agreement with Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Jumanji Slots Features

NetEnt’s slots version combines traditional slots mechanics with Jumanji’s iconic board game. The base game has 5 reels set up in a 3-4-5-4-3 formation with 36 different fixed pay lines. The Auto Play function returns to allow players to keep spinning with minimal effort. The game starts with traditional slots, lining up J, Q, K, A, or pictures of pelicans, crocodiles, rhinoceroses, and lions (in order of ascending value, animals being more valuable than letters). There are also wild slots and pictures of the Jumanji board game.

There are four randomly triggered bonus features when playing the base game.

  • Stick Vines: Winning symbols and wilds are held while the player re-spins.
  • Monsoon Wilds: Turns one or two entire reels completely wild while spinning.
  • Monkey Mayhem: a troop of monkeys dismantle and reassemble the reels for a guaranteed win.
  • Wild Stampede: a rhino stampede adds 4-9 wild symbols to the reel while spinning.

More Than Slots

If 3 or more Jumanji board games appear anywhere on slots, the reels are replaced with the board game. Depending on how many Jumanji boards appear, the player may start with 6, 7, or 8 rolls of the dice on the board game. As players roll the dice, a piece moves around the game board, acquiring cash prizes, free rolls, or free spins. The two squares in the middle of the board grant a mystery award, granting cash prizes and 2 extra dice rolls.

The corners of the board game grant the player free spins on the slots with the aforementioned modifiers. The specific corners will determine the modifier added as well as the number of free spins (Clockwise from the top right: Stick Vines, Monsoon Wilds, Monkey Mayhem, and Wild Stampede).

  • Vines Free Spins: 10 free spins and re-spins after winning combinations. Similar to the sticky vines feature, vines hold wilds in place for the entire feature.
  • Monsoon Free Spins: 7 free spins with the Monsoon Wilds feature.
  • Monkey Free Spins: 6 free spins with the Monkey Mayhem feature (which means 6 free wins).
  • Stampede Free Spins: 5 free spins with the Wild Stampede feature.

Name Recognition

After being announced in early 2018, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt Henrik Fagerlund said:

“Being able to secure a deal for another high-profile title showcases the moves we’re making in diversifying our roster of games.”

Jumanji is the most recent addition to NetEnt’s long line of name branded games. In movies alone, Jumanji joins the likes of Aliens, Scarface, and Planet of the Apes to have branded games by the company. Other big names include band games like Motorhead and two separate games branded with the South Park television show. Jumanji itself draws some inspiration from NetEnt’s 2016 Guns N’ Roses video slots, which similarly offers multiple bonus games with more rock’n’roll and a different Jungle.

If that weren’t enough big names, NetEnt released Jumanji during their World Cup event. The company is offering extra bonuses on two of their top online slots games during every match day of the world’s largest tournament.

NetEnt’s Jumanji is available for computer, phone, and tablet devices.
