Welcome to the world of Jumanji
Buried in the woods, making the sounds of drums, it’s at the beginning of the 1995 Jumanji movie that you’ll hear the comments “What if someone digs this up?” and “God help them!”. This is when you know trouble is on the way. In this case, for Alan and Sarah and Judy and Peter who are separately getting into troubles while playing Jumanji but eventually end up working together to undo the terror caused by the game.
It was Alan who as a young boy discovered the Jumanji board game, not aware of the unimaginable powers of the mysterious looking board game. He and Sarah are the first two to try the game with Sarah throwing the dices first. Her action leads to a strange sound coming from the fireplace. Without waiting for what’s coming. Alan takes his turn and rolls the dice. It’s the message “In the jungle, you must wait, until the dice read five or eight” that warns for what’s coming after which Alan is literally sucked into the game. Meanwhile, a colony of bats coming from the fireplace chases Sarah out of the mansion to not return there for the next 26 years.
It’s 26 years later that Judy and Peter move into the mansion where they find the interesting looking board game in the attic. They open the game and start to play and soon Jumanji releases a swarm of big mosquitoes followed by a troop of rabid monkeys. Knowing all will be undone if they finish the game, they continue.
That’s when not only a lion is released by the Jumanji game, but Alan as well after being stuck in the jungle for 26 years. He soon finds out things have changed quite a bit with not his parents living in the mansion, but Judy and Peter. The three together have to find Sarah in order to finish the game so all damage will be undone. Until that point is reached the game releases fast-growing carnivorous plants and Alan’s good old friend from the jungle, the hunter Van Pelt, as well as a stampede of various animals. This while a pelican is stealing the game and Alan is arrested, Then Van Pelt is the next to steal the game, but Peter, Sarah, and Judy manage to get the Jumanji game back and reunite with Alan. Although completely overrun by jungle wildlife, the four of them get back to finish the game. Soon it’s Alan who wins the game, causing everything that had happened during the Jumanji board game to be reversed.
Some of the above adventures are now available on the reels as Jumanji Touch® was released in June 2018. The game was announced by NetEnt not too long after the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’s premiere in 2017. However, Jumanji Touch® is based on the original movie from 1995 which is why you’ll some of the above calamities that befell Alan, Sarah, Judy, and Peter turned into slot features. Of course, the Jumanji board game is involved too, with the Board Game feature being one of the most exciting and unique bonus games I’ve seen so far in a mobile slot.
Also pretty unique in Jumanji Touch® are the 5 distinctive reels showing a geometric form where the reels are 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 symbols high from left to right while surrounded by the famous Jumanji board game. While visible throughout the entire game, it is only during the bonus game that the Jumanji board game becomes available. Just as during the main game, it will be the Sticky Vines, Monsoon Wilds, the Monkey Mayhem and Wild Stampede feature that will be responsible for the action on the reels. However, during the bonus game, these features will be activated as Free Spins features.
4 Jumanji Touch® features
NetEnt managed to bring its own twist to Jumanji Touch® by transforming the calamities that befell Alan, Sarah, Judy, and Peter into slot features. Four calamities can now be activated s a slot feature. During the main game, they’ll be available as Random slot features while during the Board Game feature they will be activated as Free Spins features.
There will be the Wild Stampede feature which brings a rhinos stampede to the game! Chaos will be what follows but once the stampede disappears, a whole bunch of Wild symbols have been left behind on the reels.
They can catch you and once they do, you’re in big trouble! Hold on tight when as you might be on the carnivorous plant’s menu! During the Sticky Vines feature, wild-growing carnivorous plants will wrap themselves around the symbols in order to keep them there while the rest of the symbols keep spinning. You’ll be safe as soon as no new symbols of the same sort can be captured by the Sticky Vines!
You’ll be safe until a new feature is activated and this time you’re shoes might become wet. A bit of rain doesn’t kill you, but what if the Monsoon season is opened and all rain will fall within seconds? This situation can become dangerous and “see you later alligator” might not apply after the activation of the Monsoon Wilds feature. This feature will definitely add to your chances of a big win, though!
If you think it can’t get worse after the rhinos, alligators, and wild-growing carnivorous plants, you haven’t met this bunch of lunatics yet. Jumanji Touch® becomes a bit messy as soon as they show up, the wildest of them all! Although not the largest and certainly not the strongest, the rabid monkeys will be responsible for messing up the reels during the Monkey Mayhem feature!
Jumanji Board Game feature
Three or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the main game activate the Jumanji Board Game feature. Just realise you might have opened Pandora’s Box. Once you roll those dice, there’s no way back and you must finish what you started!
Continue by picking your pawn and role the two six-sided dice. The number of rolls depends on the number of Scatters involved in the activation of the Bonus Game. Each Free Spin feature is located at each corner of the board game. When your pawn lands on one of the two locations in front of a feature, that Free Spins feature will be activated.
When your pawn on the Mystery Feature location, a carousel of Free Spin features, coin wins (x2 – x10 bet), and 2 extra dice rolls will appear within the Jumanji circle. The carousel will decide what trouble is waiting for you next!
