Punch Bowl Party
There appears to be a Hawaiian theme to the party that all the animals of the jungle are having in this vivid slot from EGT. In addition to the fruits themselves, bananas and pineapples that beckon invitingly, there’s a pink hippo playing the trumpet, a rhino wielding the maracas, a monkey playing the bongos and also a snake and a parrot among others. This incongruous crew have gotten together for a night of revelry like no other.
Jungle Adventure is a medium to high volatility slot with 10 paylines and the potential to win up to 5,000 times your line bet. It’s got 3 jackpots built in including a progressive pot. The line bet can be set between 0.01 and 10, making for a maximum bet of 100 per spin. The premise behind the game is a simple one: the animals are having a party in the heart of the jungle and, judging by the industrial quantities of punch being consumed, it’s destined to be quite a boozy affair.
Rumble in the Jungle
The lion plays the role of wild, as lions are apt to do in jungle and safari themed slots. It’ll award 5 times your line bet for 5 wilds on a payline as well as substituting for regular symbols to boost your wins in the base game. There’s scatter too which is a raccoon or some kind of mammal at least, wielding a log playfully as if using it to create a percussive effect. Whatever its species, it’ll trigger free spins when you land 3 or more in view. There are up to 12 available.
As you collect them, the number you have remaining will be displayed clearly below the reels. If the bongo drums-playing monkey appears during free spins, your win for that particular spin will be doubled. As for the regular playing symbols, the rhino is worth 5,000 for 5 but the pink hippo fares better, coming in at 10,000 for 5 with the maximum bet settings enabled. Only the wild symbol is worth more, commanding a cool 50,000. As for the grandest prize of all, Jungle Adventure has a 4-level mystery jackpot that’s sorted according to card suits.

Holding its Own
There’s not a whole lot to say about Jungle Adventure other than that this slot can certainly hold its own against the glut of other jungle-themed slots that have been released since. The game is starting to show its age now, and yet the gameplay is still as good now as it was upon its release almost 10 years ago. With free spins in plentiful supply, there’s plenty of money to be made from playing Jungle Adventure while joining its creatures for a mischievous punch-fuelled party.
