NOTE: It's confirmed! NetEnt will be doing a Jumanji slot based on the original movie in 2018. We were the first to guess it, here's everything we know, and more as we know it.
You heard it here first folks! NetEnt has announced that they will be releasing big news come the 17th of January, but we've cracked their teaser in minutes.
Once upon a time, around 1995, a little before we hit puberty, but old enough to recognise that cartoons were lame, we sat and watched the film Jumanji religiously.
Why is this relevant right now? Because, for once, our misspent youth actually helped us in our day to day life.
NetEnt Gaming slot studios have released a quick teaser of some big news coming next week on the 17th of January 2018. But you don’t have to wait that long, as we instantly recognised what that was.
Technically they haven’t said so out loud… yet.
This is what we got on Youtube; it’s 22 seconds long, we promise it won’t take much of your time.
Exciting right? Great big lion, coming slowly out of the shadows… could be anything… right?
Wrong! It can only mean one thing.

We would like to refer you back to the first sentence of this post, and the fact that, in retrospective, we had a really, really boring childhood.
Jumanji was part of our experience growing up.
Some people have sweet memories of the muppets, others love the Chronicles of Narnia, other’s (still) are Pokemon fans to this day.
Some of us watched two kids make terrible life decisions.
Don’t believe us? We’re hurt. It’s like you can’t trust anything on the internet these days.
Well, if you think we’ve gone mad and that we are jumping to conclusions based on very little, we ask only one thing take a look at this clip:
You’ll soon see it’s the exact same Lion from the NetEnt slot teaser advert.
Every year around this time, NetEntertainment like to make a big announcement around a brand they’ve managed to acquire.

And unlike many other slot developers, who are happy to take whatever nostalgia movie they happen to be able to get *cough Microgaming’s Highlander cough*, they are a bit pickier.
Right now, if you go to the cinemas here in the United Kingdom, you’ll be able to see Dwayne ‘The Rock” Johnson head into the Jungles of Jumanji 13 years after the original film came out.
And whilst no one expected the new movie to do as well as the original, it has hit all the right notes for most of us to remember how wonderful the first Jumanji really was.
Something that NetEnt will hope for as they no doubt release their Jumanji slot online.
Make no mistake, whilst NetEntertainment will no doubt capitalise on the fact that their’s a whole bout of nostalgia happening thanks to the new movie, it’s the original that will be made into a slot game.
The question, of course, is will they have access to all the characters from the movie?
The big ones being the late, great, Robin Williams who is now the next thing close to sainthood for 90s kids, and Kirstin Dunst who is all grown up.
Of course, despite our absolute total certainty, there’s a chance that NetEnt are making some big January joke.
The news about this new Jumanji mobile slot is pure (educated) speculation, based on a 22-second video clip.
Maybe they’ve just used the first lion they could find on Google and they are making a Spartacus slot of their own?
But we doubt it. As soon as we know, we will let you know.
Might as well try a great NetEnt slot before Jumanji comes at some point in 2018.Start Playing at Casumo »
