Novomatic Jungle Queen Slot Review and Free Play

Jungle Queen: Demo

Join a mighty female warrior on a quest for hidden forest treasure in Jungle Queen. Powered by Novomatic, it’s a simple, 5 reel, 20 payline video slot. Watch out for the stacked Jungle Queen though who is wild and also triggers the free spins round which is played on a 40 payline machine. Take aim from between 40p and £50 per spin.

Like many Novomatic games, Jungle Queen isn’t a thing of beauty. The design is better than some games from this developer but we’re still a way of Thunderkick or Yggdrasil Gaming standards. The reels are set against a forest backdrop and are flanked by statues and ruins.

As usual, the lower value playing cards are present and correct – you’ll also see knives and necklaces which pay up to 10 times your total stake per payline. The green snake is next, offering awards of up to 15 times your stake, followed by the monkey who awards 20x for a 5 symbol combination.

They’re joined by the death mask which is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels and you’ll win 2, 5 or 20 times your total stake. The scatter doesn’t trigger the bonus feature though.

The Free Games feature is in fact triggered by the Jungle Queen who is the game’s wild – she can hit on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. If she fills up the whole of 1 of those reels, you’ll be awarded 5 free spins with the triggering stacked wild locked in place.

These free spins are played on an expanded machine which offers 40 rather than the usual 20 paylines. Land a stacked wild here and it too is locked in place for the rest of the feature. An extra free spin is added to your total too.

This particular jungle is prime Novomatic territory. It’s not especially pretty to look at but there’s some decent action lurking beneath the undergrowth. The key to the action is the bonus round where the stacked wilds can have a big impact, especially if you land more than 1 of them.

Simple Jungle Queen certainly is – it can deliver some solid action too. Novomatic video slots are something of an acquired taste. If you enjoy their usual simple design and potentially explosive bonus round then this is a jungle trek worth undertaking. If you like female warriors, I also suggest you take a look at WMS’ Amazon Queen.
