At first glance
Character based slots seem to be all the rage at the moment, as shown by the immediate success of Justice League by NextGen Gaming. With the announcement of Tarzan, Microgaming look to follow on from this success with a game based on the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The game consists of 5 reels and 40 paylines, and all premium symbols are based on characters from the book (Tarzan, Jane, Professor Archimedes, a leopard and a chimp) and lower value symbols represented by various fruits. Tarzan, Jane and Archimedes can fill up 2 Positions on the reel. The scatter symbol is a wheel with bonus written on it, and the wild symbol is simply the games logo. The max win in this slot is 2750x the stake, however the official RTP has not been announced yet.
The bonus in this game is triggered by landing 3 scatter symbols. This triggers a spinning wheel which can award:
- Bet multiplier coin win – cash win
- Pick-A-Potamus picking mini-game – choose from hippos each hiding a cash prize
- 12 Free Spins – Winning symbols will disappear in this feature and new ones appear after, keep spinning until no win. Wild stacks increase by 1 after each spin
- Jackpot – Win either 200, 400 or 1000x the stake depending on how many scatters triggered the bonus.
How can I play it?
The game will be released on 31/12/2016 and will be a multi-platform game so you will be able to access it on mobile and desktop devices. As with most Microgaming games it will be available across many reputable online casinos.
This game looks good fun with plenty of bonus features to keep you interested – you definitely won’t want to leave until you hit them all! The graphics, as with most new games seem to be very neat, and gameplay seems similar to another Microgaming slot, Bridesmaids.
