Welcome to the Jungle! Or (really) the Alan Parish Family home as this Jumanji mobile slot game brings back everything that was awesome about the 1995 cult classic movie.
And what was awesome wasn’t the characters or the surprisingly dark story of a boy losing 26 years of his life.
It’s the board game, it’s those drums beating the promise of exciting things to come, and it’s that terrifying moment when you roll the dice and you don’t know if you’ll be hit by giant spiders or lions.
That’s the core of what the NetEnt studios have achieved here; they’ve put together a 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 symbols high geometric 5 reel slot that mixes jungle movie theme and slot beautifully.
The clever part here is the way the bonus games work. 3 Scatters will allow you to play the actual board game of Jumanji. You will roll two six-sided dies and go around the board.
What you are trying to do is go around the board as often as you can, either getting cash prizes, extra rolls of the die, or one/all of the four free spin features.
These Jumanji free spins could be: 10 free spins with sticky wins, to 7 free spins with wild reels, or 6 free spins with a guaranteed win on each spin, or 5 free spins where 4 to 9 wilds are added to the reels each time.
You can trigger all four of them, and we’ve triggered at least two, if not three, in one turn of the board game to be impressed by the mechanics.
A little bit, mostly because it can take a while to go around the board game, and you are left wondering if your time wouldn’t be better spent spinning on this Jumanji slot and it’s 36 fixed paylines.
And to be honest, it could be. Because each of the four free spin features below can randomly occur during the base game in one re-spin, just like in NetEnt’s Hooks Heroes slot.
The symbols come in sufficiently stacked that you are likely to get several decent 4 or 5 of a kind win that you don’t even need the bonus game to get wins of over 50x your bet.
We genuinely really enjoyed this slot machine by NetEnt – possibly as much as we did their Archangels Salvation 2018 slot.
The theme fits with all our memories from our childhood movie, and better yet, adds an air of extreme excitement to the features.
Who doesn’t love seeing leaping crocodiles land on the reels and turn wild? Or vines creeping through the hexagonal reels, keeping winning symbols on the board to help create larger wins?
If you don’t absolutely love Jumanji, past or new, you could probably drop a star, but we’d still recommend you take a spin and see if you’ll survive this monsoon.

Wilds: The word 'wild' is the wild symbol and replaces all others on these 36 payline slot game to create wins.
Random Base Game Features: At any point whilst you play one of the four corners of the reels may activate with one of these features.
Scatter and Bonus Games: 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the board game feature.
Here you will roll two dice; with true odds to the roll. The free spins are located on each corner of the game, and if you land on the cases, will trigger.
You can only play each of the free spin rounds once, but you can play all four free spin rounds if you get to go around the board game enough times.
You want to land on the four corner free spins, but you can also land on the mystery feature, which grants you more 2+ rolls, coin wins of between 2x and 10x your bet, or even trigger one of the free spin features.
There are also cases which simply give you a small multiplier on your bet cash win or an extra roll of the dice.
If you do hit one of the corner free spins, you'll win:
Our favourite has to be the stampede, but you can get pretty good wins on all features if we are honest.
Did a hint of nostalgia help make this Jumanji Touch slot on mobile a 5-star review?
Maybe. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a very good animal themed game with great design features and fantastic bonus games.
Better yet, unlike more famous hexagonal reels like Siberian Storm Dual Play, NetEnt keeps things simple here by giving you 36 paylines and a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin.
It means newbies can afford to take a few spins, but those of us who've played on many mobile slots will enjoy the unique board game bonus and the multiple big win free spin features.
