The Wombat says: A couple of years ago Microgaming secured the license to the Tarzan brand. Now that infamous jungle hero has been transferred onto your slot screens, in the Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar slot developed by Gameburger Studios.
Microgaming and Gameburger Studios partner up quite often nowadays – so what can you expect from this release? Well, these US developers are the very same studios that brought us 9 Masks of Fire and 9 Pots of Gold slots, so they should give us the right mix of great graphics, decent pays and interesting game play.
It is also a medium/high volatility game Wombat fans, that comes with the chance to win up to 12,500x your stake in the Free Spins bonus round. That’s even more than the Visitors slot machine from ELK Studios my furry friends!
So, how about we hit the jungle pronto? Grab that loin cloth and get ready to start yodeling…
Look and Feel
This slot looks like the business. If business means awesome graphics Wombat fans! We haven’t seen anything this fancy since the Coins of Fortune slot from Nolimit City.
Your stone reels are set against a colourful lush rainforest backdrop. The leaves gently sway in the breeze and the vines shake, too. Best of all, as the game fires up, Tarzan will swing from behind and over the reels clutching on to his rope for dear life. Which gave this wombat a bit of a shock, truth be told…
The soundtrack to your spins mainly consists of tribal drums and the odd screech or roar of jungle wildlife. But, scoop a big win and Tarzan will fly towards you at a rate of knots yodeling his famous jungle call. Plus, the soundtrack will become faster and more up tempo.
Peer behind the reels and you’ll see the top of the Multiplier Reel hiding at the top of the screen. But more on this later…
A great-looking game, and a definite step up graphics-wise for Gameburger.
Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar Slot Game Play
Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines, just like the Rise of Dead slot from Play ‘n Go. You can take a spin (or should we say swing, ha) on the jungle reels from as little as 0.20 up to a maximum of 20.00 per spin.
Your reel icons are made up of 4 lower value symbols – the J, Q, K & A playing card symbols that are designed up camo-style. Next comes the big guys; Tarzan’s nemesis The Belgian, his lady friend Jane, a jungle High Priestess and bare-chested Tarzan himself. Land 5x of this fine male specimen on the reels and you’ll win 37.50x your bet.
The standard Wild symbol in the game is the Black Panther icon. It will do the usual job of wilds to substitute for all other icons in play to make extra wins.
The bonus icons are yellow and pink and have Free Spins written on them, while the pink shiny gemstones (most likely said Jewels of Opar) makes up the Scatters that will pay out for 3x or more.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
In the base game, Tarzan can randomly swing across the reels and set off the Random Wild feature.
This cool little extra will give you from 2- 15 extra Wild Symbols added to the reels on random positions. As you can probably imagine, the more Wilds that Tarzan chucks at the reels for you, the more chance you have of landing a chunky pay out.
FYI Wombat fans: This bonus can randomly hit during the Free Spins round, too. Bonza!
Scatter Pays: Jewel Jackpot
This is one of Gameburger Studio’s trademark features – and one that this wombat has got a lot of time for.
To the right of the first reel you’ll see that there are 7 individual cash prizes up for grabs. You can win them by landing anywhere from 3 to 9 of the shiny pink gemstone Scatter Symbols on the reels. But it has to all at the same time.
Pay outs start at a measly 1x your bet, but this can go all the way up to a mind-blowing 5,000x your bet if you’re lucky enough to land 9x of the blighters! Good luck!
Free Spins Bonus
Trigger off the Free Spins round by landing 3x of the brightly coloured Bonus symbols on the second, third and fourth reels on the same spin. Manage this and it’s time to celebrate!
But before we get down to serious business, you’ll need to spin a chance wheel that will move from behind the reels to the front of them. This will tell you exactly how many Free Spins you will be awarded, and what the win multiplier will be on them. Here you can scoop from x10 to x30 Free Spins and up to a 10x Multiplier.
Your Free Spins will then be played out- and the good news is you can re-trigger the bonus by landing 3x more of those lurid Bonus icons. Ruddy excellent!
The question is, does Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar slot prove itself to be king of of the jungle in Slotland? Well, we’ve got no idea who ‘Opar’ is, but we do know that this slot is a whole lot of fun to play.
The action is non stop whether you’re hoping to clinch scatter wins, a screenful of wilds or even bring home the bacon in the Free Spins.
Add to that a very decent max win and some top notch visuals – and you have a game that is sure to put a smile on your slot loving chops…
It’s a must-play. Well done the chaps at Microgaming and Gameburger Studios!
Wombat score: 5/5
