Edgar Rice Burroughs’ famous tale about the feral child raised by jungle apes gets a slots re-telling courtesy of Microgaming. Beautifully designed, this 5 reel, 40 payline video slot comes with a pick me round, a dozen free spins with Rolling Reels and Growing wilds as well as instant jackpots of up to 1,000 times your stake. Join Lord Greystoke from between 40p and £40 per spin.
Microgaming has created a cracking looking game in Tarzan – the 3D graphics are bright, vibrant and full of jungle colour. Look out for fruit, birds, monkeys, leopards, explorers and Tarzan. The character symbols can land 2 high to offer better winning potential. The Tarzan logo is the game’s wild – able to hit fully stacked and fill multiple reels, it replaces everything with the exception of the bonus scatter (the wheel).
3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin trigger the Bonus Wheel – here you get to spin a Wheel of Fortune style spinner. There are 4 potential prizes on offer here depending on where the pointer finishes:
Multiplier – this awards a multiplier prize to your total stake. The more scatters that triggered the feature, the bigger the potential awards. 3 scatters and it’s 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x. 4 and the wheel features 6x, 8x, 10x or 12x multipliers. 5 scatters and the prizes are raised to 9x, 12x, 15x or 18x.
Pick-a-Potamus Bonus feature – here you’ll be presented with a dozen hippos. Pick 1 to reveal a cash prize. Keep on picking until you land the collect. You’re guaranteed at least 2 winning hippos here.
Free Spins feature – 12 free spins are awarded here. Also in play are Rolling Reels – any symbols that form a winning combo are blasted away and replaced by the ones above. These reel rolls continue until there’s no new winner on show. Look out too for the Growing Wilds – these are added following each free spin and can reach up to 15 extra wilds.
Jackpot – if the pointer on the bonus wheel lands on the Jackpot segment, you’ll win a prize of 200, 400 or 1,000 times your stake depending on how many scatters triggered the feature.
There’s plenty to like in this version of the famous jungle story. Visually, it’s supremely well done – the cartoon graphics, complete with some funky animations, are a treat. The features provide a nice blend too, offering a little something for everyone regardless of your bonus tastes. The variance is in the medium range – the bonus wheel triggers often enough but can still pack a decent payout punch when it does arrive.
We enjoyed this modern day take on the Tarzan tale. Combining sleek looks with decent bonus features, it offers a neat balance of enjoyment with winning potential – of up to 2,750 times your stake on each spin if you’re lucky!
