After inking a licensing deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment in January, online casino solutions innovator NetEnt AB has now announced the launch of its latest branded video slot in the five-reel and 36-payline Jumanji.
According to an official Monday press release from NetEnt AB (pdf), Jumanji is themed on the 1995 fantasy adventure film of the same name and comes complete with four random bonuses alongside a board game attraction that offers four unique free spin innovations as well as a ‘mystery’ feature, coins wins and extra dice rolls.
“The unique branded game combines the classic board game with a video slot and unleashes a rhino stampede, wild monkeys, sticky vines and monsoons,” read a statement from Stockholm-listed NetEnt AB.
Regarding these bonus features, the Swedish developer stated that Wild Stampede sees rampaging rhinoceros adding up to nine wild symbols to the spinning reels while guaranteed wins await online casino aficionados that manage to trigger the Monkey Mayhem innovation. There is also the prospect of turning as many as two reels fully wild via the Monsoon Wilds feature whereas the Sticky Vines bonus will retain all winning and wild icons before re-spinning their counterparts.
“The Jumanji movie was a great success and we know it has fans all over the world,” read a statement from Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer for NetEnt AB. “Making a slot game true to the fantastic features of the movie has been challenging but most of all great fun. We found a way of incorporating both board game features and all the excitement into a slot game and the game has already been well received by players.”
