The jungle theme gives players plenty to look at as the reels spin with lots of exotic animals on the reels and a green background filled with vegetation and golden Aztec statues. There are also a few Aztec explorers here along with backpack with camping equipment and some binoculars. There are a few musical interludes when you hit a good win but on the whole this is quite a quiet slot.
