The objective of playing Heart of the Jungle online slot is to spin the reels and land matching symbols on the paylines. Unlike traditional casino games, such as online roulette or blackjack, Heart of the Jungle evolves over time, as you can unlock new bonus features the more you play.
How to Play:
You can open the Info Pages by clicking the Info button on the bottom left of the screen. You can move through the various pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. To return to the reel select Back. The Info Pages are described below:
Paytable – this page displays the Paytable, which shows all possible payouts for winning combinations.
Jungle Trail – this page describes the awarding of Jungle Trail Free Spins,
Deep Jungle – this page describes the special features of Deep Jungle Free Spins.
Crystal Falls – this page describes the special features of Crystal Falls Free Spins.
The Golden Mountain – this page describes the special features of The Golden Mountain Free Spins.
Lost City of Zantar – this page describes the special features of Lost City of Zantar Free Spins.
Achievements – this page details the different achievements that can be made and recorded when playing Heart of the Jungle slot.
Paylines – this page displays illustrations showing where all 50 paylines appear on the reels.
Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow from left to right across the reels to pay as Line Wins. There are 50 fixed paylines used in this slot.
Please note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the wager made on each individual payline. The Total Bet is the amount bet on all paylines, i.e. Line Bet x 50.
The payouts for all possible winning combinations are listed on the Paytable. Multiply the figure shown by the Line Bet to calculate the value of a Line Win.
Only the highest win is paid on each payline. Multiple wins can occur on different paylines; these are added together and paid as a total win.
A Line Win must begin on Reel 1 and be in an unbroken chain of at least three symbols on a payline.
The Wild Symbol can substitute for all other symbols (except Scatter Symbols) to form the best possible Line Win.
Three or more Wild Symbols falling on a payline (beginning on Reel 1) can form their own unique Line Win with a separate payout.
The Scatter Symbol appears on Reels 1, 3 and 5 only. They do not have any payout value. Instead, you will be awarded Jungle Trail Free Spins if you land three Scatter Symbols in any position on the reels.
All Symbols (apart from Scatter Symbols) can appear stacked on the reels. This means they can cover every position on each reel, which can potentially lead to 50 Line Wins in a single spin. If multiple stacks of the same symbol appear in a Line Win, it will be highlighted by animations on the reels.
Jungle Trail Free Spins:
Three Scatter Symbols landing simultaneously on Reels 1, 3 and 5 will award Jungle Trail Free Spins. There are four different levels of Free Spins that can be unlocked on the Jungle Trail: Deep Jungle, Crystal Falls, The Golden Mountain and the Lost City of Zantar.
