There are no cruises down this river, in order to tame these wild beasts you are going to have to give this Dark Jungle mobile slot your time and fortune.
Anyone knows that any good adventure has a few pitfalls and plenty of danger – and this Cayetano Dark Jungle slot spells out the dangers from the word go.
The high paying symbols are the tiger, panther and boa constrictor and the star of the show, the one that triggers all the bonus features, the massive silverback Gorilla – think King Kong Game rather than the Gorilla Go Wild slot by NextGen Gaming.
This is a DARK jungle and whilst the Ace to 9 symbols may be a little bland, the sights and sounds are entertaining enough to keep you spinning.
If you love to play slots with bonus features, this isn’t it.
Dark Jungle is a 5 reel, 4 rows, 40 payline slot machine with wilds, an instant win symbol, scatters and free spins.
So during the base game, you are basically looking for the wild and the Gorilla symbol on reel 3 which randomly pops up and you get up to 50x your bet. Mostly you don’t, mostly you get 5x or 10x your bet, but it’s there as a hope.
Otherwise, you are just hoping to catch those scatters.
This is the part that turns this Dark Jungle video slot from just another slot from Cayetano like Money Tower, to something deserving of our return and attention.
Mostly it’s the fact that during the free spins you get sticky wins which they call ‘lock and re-spin’. As in, when you get winning symbols on screen they lock in place and the other symbols re-spin, and you keep getting re-spins until you get no more winning symbols.
By the end you get your win.
What makes this special? Haven’t we seen sticky wins in games like Sticky Bandits, Jack Hammer, Barbershop Uncut and so many more?
Yeap, but in this Dark Jungle game your multiplier increases by one on each re-spin, and we’ve gotten wins of well over 300 times our bet because of it.
This isn’t a perfect online slot machine, but if you can wait for those free spins, these animals can go truly wild.

Wild: The Tiger is the wild symbol and comes stacked across all five reels. It can replace any other symbol to create a win over any of the 40 paylines.
Instant Win: If you get the Gorilla symbol in the middle reel, this massive beast will beat the ground and pay out anything from 5x to 50x your bet.
Scatters and Free Spins: The free spin scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 triggers 9 free spin bonus games.
What makes this interesting is that on a win, those symbols will now stay sticky on screen and the rest of the symbols will respin. For each re-spin, the multiplier will increase by one and then you get the final payout.
You can also catch extra free spins and get an additional +3 free spin rounds.
If we loved this Dark Jungle slot on mobile so much why does it only get 4 stars? Well mostly because the RTP is only at 94.79% which is very low - we rarely like playing slots for real money with a return to play rate less than 95%.
Yet you don't feel it as much thanks to the free spins progressive lock and re-spin feature where you can collect scatters and sticky wins. It's fun to watch, and certainly exciting to get those big wins.
In short, we had good fun playing on this Dark Jungle game, just as long as you don't mind that you need to hit the free spins in order to get big wins.
You probably can't play for this video slot forever, maybe a quick 10 minutes to try and get that bonus feature, but we could see ourselves coming back to playing on this Gorilla. And then, there's always King Kong Fury slot if you want to up your game.
