Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild
Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild is a fantastic 3D 5 reels and 243 ways to win slot powered by Net Entertainment. Net Entertainment kicked the year off with a bang by already releasing an impressive amount of new slots and announcing the release of many more which include the graphical masterpiece, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild.
The slot has a return to player percentage of 96.8% and players can win a non-progressive jackpot of up to 7,600x their stake. It might be safe to say that this slot is a high-variance slot with the rewards being so high one can expect the risk to be just as high.

Players will be able to experience the jungle spirit on their desktop computers straight to their tablet and mobile devices. If you have a love for nature, wild animals and spectacular winning opportunities then this slot will definitely be one worth playing.
Look & Feel
While the theme of the slot isn’t quite unique the graphics are simply fantastic and a real 3D treat. Firstly, if you are someone who prefers a little bit more of a simplistic design then this slot might not really tickle your fancy but those who adore a visual overload of animations, details and overcrowded designs will fall in love with this slot from the very first spin.
The backdrop of the slot features a beautiful crowded jungle background with swinging tree branches. The backdrop isn’t a still life and will come to life on your screen once you open up the game. The symbols include 5 detailed animal designs of cobras, crocodiles, elephants, tigers and bears. The lower value symbols include the normal playing card symbols A, K, Q, J and 10. Of all the symbols on the reels the tiger is of the highest value and can reward you with up to 150 coins a pay line if you manage to get 5 simultaneously.
Despite the fact that the theme might have been done a couple of times in a variety of slots from different gaming providers this one is most certainly one of the best quality ones when it comes to the graphics and sounds.
Sound & Score
Playing Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild will actually transport you to the jungle with the beautiful and detailed sounds attached to it. To be honest we felt more like we were watching a movie with surround sound than playing an online slot game. Each time you form a winning combination with a set of one animal symbol then you will hear the animal sounding out its delight. When you form a winning combination with the elephant the reels will look like it’s part of a stampede, the snake will hiss and the tiger will roar.
One of the best things about the sound for this slot is that NetEnt has allowed you to choose between two different soundtracks. So if the visuals are already a bit of an overload you can opt for the more calming and soothing sounds of nature, if you prefer to fully immerse yourself in this jungle journey then you can blast the sounds of native drums and animal sounds.
Bonus features and Gameplay
Symbol Expansion Feature:
Small butterflies will appear on certain symbols and if any of these butterfly-framed symbols form part of a winning combination the symbol will expand to fill the whole reel. This expanded symbol will reward you with much higher winnings than your original combination would’ve gotten you.
Butterfly Boost Feature:
This beautiful feature takes place in the base game and can be hit at random on any winning spin that doesn’t include a scatter or butterfly frame. Butterflies will flutter across the reels and expand over 1-3 symbols to grant you with one lucrative win.
Free Spins Feature:
If you manage to land 3-5 scatters on the reels you will trigger this feature as well as score up to 50 times your stake. The reels will be replaced with an open view of 5 animal statues in the middle of the jungle and you’ll be allowed to pick one. The symbol you choose will be the only higher value symbol on the reels during the free spins. The animal you choose also determines the amount of free spins you might get. The tiger gets you 4 free spins, the elephant 8, the bear 12, the crocodile 16 and the cobra 20.
The symbol Expansion feature can be triggered during the Free Spins rounds and during the free spins round an extra row will be added to improve your reels which will leave you with 1,024 ways to win.
