In the Jungle
Jungle Boogie is taking place in a simple yet colourful environment. Imagine that you were dropped in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, with no map and surrounded by wild animals. Your task is to escape in one piece, but do take a moment to admire the fauna and flora around you.
Jungle Boogie sticks to basic graphics but offers players a clear view of the trees, parrots, tigers and other animals in the background. This old-school style is guaranteed to attract plenty of potential gamblers, and the gameplay sticks to the same simple style as well.
Only Three Reels to Deal With
Jungle Boogie is based on the simplest settings you can think of: 3 reels and a single payline right in the middle. You can bet 1, 2 or 3 coins per turn, with a betting range going from 0.01 to 300 credits maximum, which is very comfortable. Adjust the coin value with the plus and minus buttons under the reels or use the bet max shortcut to skip ahead and simply go all-in, if you feel up for it.
The paytable of Jungle Boogie is displayed right on top of the reels, split into 3 columns to highlight the current stakes depending on how many coins you are currently betting on the reels. The different symbols available are fish, monkeys, jaguars, parrots, tigers and other dangerous animals, with a top prize of x4000 available to players who play all-in. Note that the fish can be combined with other symbols and still unlock small cash rewards.
More of the Same Kind
Party Line and Crazy 7 are 2 other Playtech slot games based on a small reel set that rely on this old-school style to attract new players. The themes are obviously different from the tropical settings of Jungle Boogie, but the gameplay is virtually the same in all 3 games.
For a more cartoonish and positive take on the same theme, check out Happy Jungle from Playson and you will get to enjoy a more modern, 20-payline setup at the same time.
Basic Rules and Generous Rewards
Jungle Boogie can be easily described as one more retro slot game on the modern market. We liked the fact that the paytable was more generous than in most games in that category, but Jungle Boogie really lacks variety and can turn out to be quite repetitive after some time.
As a result, Jungle Boogie would probably be best enjoyed by more experienced players looking to experience the old-school slot game atmosphere that they have known all their life.
