The wombat says: Well, if things haven’t just all gone a bit 1980s over here at Wombat Towers.
Neon graphics, an electro rainforest soundtrack and pink flamingoes scattered across the reels? Why it has to be the new release from Irondog Studios. It looks pretty snazzy when you compare it to older games like the Wheel of Wealth slot machine, but does it deliver on game-play?
We’ve heard good things about this slot so let’s fire it up and see if we can’t make some jungle-sized wins
Look and Feel
As you’d expect given the title Wombat fans, neon dominates the graphics in this game. Behind the dark purple reels is a view of a high-rise cityscape (could it be Rio?) that’s lit up with a rainforest canopy in the foreground.
It’s all very quirky and quite pleasing to the eye. The reels are filled with very bright neon animals – all of which can be found in the jungle. Of course. The graphics are in the same league as the Wish Upon a Jackpot slot– they’re eye-poppingly good.
Neon Jungle is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 20 pay-lines. Your symbols on the reels are made up of a neon pink flower, a bright green butterfly, an electric blue Tree Frog, a red parrot and a furry-looking tiger. These are joined on the reels by the usual playing cards; J, Q, K & A that represent your lower value icons.
The Wild symbol in Neon Jungle slot is the neon monkey and he will replace all others symbols on the reels to help you make extra winning combos; except for the lizard Scatter symbols, the Free Spins icon and those pink flamingoes. Primates always seem to be the stars in our slots – just take a look at our Planet of the Apes game if you don’t believe us. That one is based on the movies of the same name, by the way.
Well now, here’s the best about Neon Jungle! As there are 4 ways to win extra cash in this slot outside of the base game all thanks to something called the Halo Glow.
Keep your eyes peeled for a neon glimmer which when activated will surround symbols with a glow and set off some truly excellent extras for you, including free spins, a glowing bonus round and some hefty multipliers:
The neon glow appearing on a winning combination will award you a x4 multiplier on your win. This will apply to all the paylines in use!
This is triggered with a neon glow around the purple snail and you will receive 6 free spins
The Neon Glow appearing around a scatter symbol on any positions will scoop you an instant prize of awards 250 coins.
Keno Light Bonus
You can set of this feature by landing with a neon glow around the pink flamingo. Pick 10 numbers from the 28 available or you can even use the ‘random’ button if you’re lazy like this wombat, and then press ‘Start’. The slot will draw numbers for you while you keep your fingers crossed for matches. If you don’t manage to make any matches at all you’ll receive 50 coins, and if you land 10 matches, you’ll scoop and enormous 20000! Swwweeett!
Neon Jungle looks great. The graphics are sharp and crisp and the features aren’t bad either with the keno-style pick game offering something this wombat hasn’t seen before (and that’s saying something!). Overall a nice addition to all the jungle-themed slots out there… Don’t miss this one.
Wombat score: 5/5
