Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple Slot Review: Rival Gaming

Find Treasures Deep in the Jungle with this Fast-Paced Online Slot

Johnny Jungle Slot ReviewThis slot had some surprises. The first was Johnny, a square-jawed explorer, running in front of the reels after a win. Sometimes he even did a summersault at the end of it. This is a colourful Rival Gaming slot. It reminded me of the King Kong slots from MicroGaming. A gorilla does feature as the bonus symbol. There is an upbeat soundtrack, and some fun effects when you win with the stone playing card symbols.

You’ll find the standard picks game plus free spins in use. The free spins is the key feature of these two. It features sticky wilds with respins, which can lead to some big wins. Those same wilds (which feature Johnny) will double any winning combinations that they become part of.

Explore the Setup of the Johnny Jungle Slot

Compared to many new slots, the 25 win-lines is on the lower side. This does mean that individual wins can be bigger (compared to all-ways games for example). A standard 3 rows over 5 reels setup is in play. You can change your coin size (from 1c and up), the number of coins per line (from 1 through to 10) and even change the number of lines. With sticky wilds in the free spins, I recommend that you stay with the max 25.

Auto play options are offered, and the easy controls plus big spin button make this slot perfect for mobile phones as well as desktops.

Johnny Jungle Reels

Winning Symbols: An Explorers Toolkit

Many slots themed around jungle exploration are set 100+ years ago. Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple is more up to date. Winning symbols include a digital walkie-talkie, binoculars and compass.

The best paying regular (non-wild) symbol is a bright bowie knife. This is worth 500 coins for 5 of a kind, 100 for 4 and 25 for just 3 from the left-hand reel. Next come those binoculars (250), compass (150), a bright pink orchid (100) and radio (75).

Playing card symbols, which have been carved out of stone, make up the smaller wins. Ace down to nine are in play this time.

Johnny Jungle Multiplier Wilds

Our intrepid explorer appears on the reels as well as running in front of them. This guy is a wild symbol. You see a close-up of his square-jawed face.

Wilds have the biggest single prize when you line up 3 or more. You will get 1000 coins for 5, 250 for 4 and 50 for just 3. What makes these even more valuable is the 2x multiplier they give other wins which a wild becomes a part of. There are enough on the reels that they make regular appearances, though they are not stacked.

Gold Coin Picks Game

Gold coins with skulls on them trigger a quick picks game, and also give you scatter prizes. These prizes are based on your total bet for the triggering spin. For 5 coins, you get 25x your bet, 4 gives you 5x and 3 gives you 1x. You also get to click or tap on one, revealing a prize in coins. As with many picks type games, the prizes you did not win are revealed at the end.

Rival Gaming Johnny Jungle Bonus

Gorilla’s Trigger Free Spins

You can tell the gorilla in the Johnny Jungle slot is not King Kong, courtesy of his red face. You need 3+ of these symbols to trigger a free spins bonus. 3 gives you 10 free spins, 4 brings 20 and you get 30 free spins for 5.

During your spins, the reels individually have graphics of Johnny running towards you. If you get regular wins, the spins proceed as normal. If a wild is involved in a win, it will stick in place, while you get a free respin. If another wild hits, you respin again. If not, you continue with the rest of your spin.

If you are lucky, this can lead to little sequences where you get several wins in a row.

3D Design with a Deep Jungle Theme

Top marks to Rival Gaming for the design work for Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple. I really like the effect behind the (transparent) reels. There is a temple in the distance, and a jungle to the side. This is blurred and twisted, giving an air of mystery.

On the reels, Johnny stands out, grinning at you from his symbols. When you first start spinning, it comes as a surprise to see him summersaulting over the reels! When you win with Johnny, he says ‘yeah’. I do not recommend leaving the slot after one of these wins, the ‘yeah’ will continue on and on!

Another effect I like is the stone playing card symbol animations. These come apart when you win with them. The gorilla remains static until you trigger the bonus game, then gives you a slightly scary roaring look.

When you trigger the idol picks game a coin fountain appears. This confused me the first time – as I was searching the reels to see where my big win had come from… There are also effects during the free spins, with flickering Johnny running graphics in the reels.

Music is a fast TV soundtrack kind of tune. It aims to be dramatic, though is on a short loop.

Will Johnny Jungle Bring You Back the Treasure?

Another solid slot from Rival Gaming. Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple might be formulaic (spins, picks and double-up wilds), though is has a lot of character. Our explorer seems super-confident, and is your best bet for those bigger wins. His wild symbols will double your wins during the base game. When you get the free spins and find yourself with several Johnny symbols stuck to the reels, those wins can get big. Topping it all, Rival have made this slot mobile compatible.

If you need a break from King Kong or Gonzo’s Quest – the this could be just the slot to try.
