With its Egyptian theme, Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx brings stone carved hieroglyphics, precious gems and antique symbols to the reels. The reels are set in the entrance to the Lost Sphinx tomb. In the background the clear night sky is populated with shining stars.
The game’s theme also extends to the symbols on the reels. There are four higher value theme related symbols including Jungle Jim, a book, chest and an urn vase. The lower value symbols are gems coloured pink, green, blue and brown.
Central to the gameplay is the rolling reels feature. After a successful spin, the winning symbols are removed from the reels and new symbols cascade into place along with the remaining symbols. If another win is formed then the process will repeat itself, and this can continue until no more wins are formed.
The importance of the rolling reels is that it works in tandem with a multiplier trail. With each successive win, you will move along the multiplier trail and increase the potential size of your win.
For example, in the base game you will make your initial spin on the 5x4 reel set with 35 paylines. A win will see you move along the multiplier trail and have a multiplier of x2. A second win and you obtain a x3 multiplier. The third win increases the multiplier to level 4 and increases the reel size to 5x5 and 50 paylines, further increasing the chance of a win. A fourth and fifth win from the rolling reels will grant a x5 and x10 multiplier, respectively. If you fail to secure a win at any time during a run you will return to the beginning; however, at the third level of wins you will be granted a second chance respin to try and continue the winning streak.
12 free spins are awarded when you land at least three scatter symbols along the reels. The free spins will immediately commence on the 5x5 reel set, offering 50 paylines. On the rolling trail the payout multipliers are increased compared to the base game. This time the multiplier effect starts at x2 and increases to x3, x4, x8, x12 and lastly x20. The sphinx scatter symbol may land on the third reel, and if so, it is removed and one extra free spin is granted.
To help trigger the free spins you can use the Win Booster feature. This will increase your bet per spin but it unlocks an extra scatter symbol and increases your chance of triggering the free spins, as you will need just two scatters.
