Founded in 1994, Microgaming has released hundreds of slot games by today. They have developed their own unique style and it's to no surprise that they design great slots. Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx is a sequel game that sends our explorer from the jungle to the desert. The game is no less interesting than the first one, even though it has a commonly used theme in the online gaming industry. The designers did a great job at making it different from other slots with the same inspiration behind them. In the background is, of course, the desert with a big tomb. The graphics are great and the characters have an impressive design.
Some of the symbols include differently colored gemstones, old books, pots, treasure chests and of course the most valuable Jungle Jim symbol. The game also features a scatter symbol that can activate the free spins round and the Jungle Jim logo as the wild symbol. The soundtrack is the very fitting and relaxing music of the goblet drum. Aside from good looks, it has good gameplay and great payouts as well. The player can bet a minimum of 0,10 and a maximum of 20 coins per spin. Thanks to the free spins and multipliers the player can, if lucky, win up to 6000x the stake. The game also has a 96,30% RTP which is quite good.
Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx has some great features that keep the game exciting and interesting to play. The game features the rolling reels mechanic that removes the winning combinations as soon as they occur making room for more to happen. What is great about this particular game is that the new cascading symbols that roll in increase the win multiplier. The player starts with a x1 multiplier and 35 paylines active and can end up with a x10 multiplier and 50 ways for that winning combination to happen. The game also has a Second Chance Respin feature that can be very helpful for the player. It is activated if no winning combination occurs after the third cascade.
The best part of the game is the Free Spins feature that is activated when 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols appear on the reels. The player is then gets awarded 12 free spins and a win of 5, 10 or 20 times the stake. Another great thing is that the free spins round gets to be played with 50 paylines. Also take notice of the Sphinx symbol appearing on reel 3, as it gives the player an extra free spin and increases the multiplier by 1 each time. If the player can't anticipate the free spins round full of amazing chances to win, there is a bet called the Win Booster that costs the player 4x the total stake. It triggers the round with only 2 scatter symbols with a potential win of up to 1,560x the stake.
Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx by Microgaming has shown itself as a very good upgraded sequel. The designers kept some parts from the original game upgrading and adding features, and giving the explorer a new environment. For the players who enjoy a simple slot game with some very good potential payouts Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx is the one.
