With a possible 45 different combinations of bonus features, this Jungle Books slot is one like few others.
First, let’s get the Bagheera out of the bag; this is clearly heavily inspired by Disney’s Jungle Book story originally written by Rudyard Kipling.
Yggdrasil Gaming may not be allowed to say so out loud, calling the little man-cub on screen simply ‘boy’, and each character simply as bear, snake, panther and tiger… but no one is fooled.
And you know what? This Jungle Books slot actually has beautiful interpretations of the characters, both familiar and unique.
Ever played the game Seasons by Yggdrasil? Remember how the game moved from season to season, each with their own unique wild feature.
The Jungle Books mobile slot is a little like that, except on crack.
Because there are a total of 5 realms. Each realm has a host (one of the main characters) who each give you two bonus features.
For example, Shere Khan… sorry… the tiger gives you a free sticky re-spin on a win, and stacked wilds.
Every once in a while, you get one of the other Jungle Books slot characters, who can add one of their own 2 features to the reels.
These characters swap and change constantly, totally randomly, making you feel like you’re playing, at the very minimum 5 games in one with a possible of 45 different bonus game combinations.
The thing is, this is one of those slot games where it’s actually simpler to play it and see how it works, rather than to try and explain.
We’re not saying that it’s not complicated, just that once you start spinning this Jungle Books video slot, you’ll quickly get into the swing of it.
Yes there is a lot going on, but it’s all in your favour. The only thing we will say is that you do need to keep an eye on your wallet at times.
This medium variance slot machine can, at times, feel a little slow; especially when Baloo… sorry… the bear is on screen alone.
If your idea of a good time is spinning on something like the Reel King slots, then this Jungle Books mobile game is definitely not for you.
There’s a modern complexity here that will appeal to those looking for the next generation of video slot machines.
The ones that dare to be a little bit different, and constantly changing, so you’re never quite sure if you’re playing on the same slot machine each time you load it.
Trust us, with the right combination of bonus features, this Jungle Books game is one fairytale that can give you a very happy ending.

Characters and their Realms: There are a total of 5 characters, each will sit by the right hand side of the screen.
These realms change randomly, sometime lasting 10 spins, sometimes lasting 50 spins, but rarely more than 100.
Each of the characters will give you two special features on the reels:
Our favourite? The snake has given us the biggest wins, though we suspect in combination with the panther, you can get some stunning multiplier results.
Character Guest Appearances: Whenever you are in anyone's realm above, any of the other characters can suddenly pop onto the right hand side of your screen.
These guests will then add one of their two features to their reels for a few spins.
It's this combination, when you have 3 instead of 2, Jungle Books bonus game features active, where the really big wins come.
58 or 68 paylines? The reels change realm by realm, with different reel configations.
But basically, you get 58 paylines when playing in the realm of the boy, the bear, and the tiger.
You have 68 paylines when playing on the far more lucrative realms of the snake and the panther.
Yggdrasil slots don't generally tend to go for complicated; the bloated Spina Colada game being the one exception.
And whilst this multitude of combinations and bonus games shouldn't work, there's something fascinating about playing a casino game that is constantly changing.
It's not as complicated as it sounds, and can be frustrating if you get stuck on a character you hate.
But we still think this mobile Jungle Books slot is well worth trying, if only for the novelty of trying something a little bit different from the norm.
