Players guaranteed nostalgia with NetEnt’s new title
Netent has announced the release of its unique video slot game, based on the renown classic film Jumanji of Sony Pictures Entertainment. The branded game brings the classic board game to life with its rhino stampede, wild monkeys, sticky vines and monsoons.
Along the original story-line, a neglected board game retains the power to wreak havoc. NetEnt has brought Jumanji to the world of online video slots with the five-reel game containing all the excitement of the movie.
NetEnt leaves its personal mark in the Jumanji universe by transforming the misadventures of Alan Parrish into features with slot mechanics. Jumanji is a five-reel video slot game with 4 random features, a Board Game with four different Free Spins, a Mystery Feature, coin wins, and extra dice rolls.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, commented: “The Jumanji movie was a great success and we know it has fans all over the world. Making a slot game true to the fantastic features of the movie has been challenging but most of all great fun. We found a way of incorporating both board game features and all the excitement into a slot game and the game has already been well received by players!”
Jumanji is an industry-first and a new innovation in video slots as the game combines both board game and video slot game elements together. Additionally, the board game includes both free spins and a mystery feature.
NetEnt is reputable for its reward-filled gaming system, with a player landing a €3.7M jackpot just last month.
Four famous features present in the Jumanji film will also feature in the Jumanji video slot game:
- Wild Stampede: Rhinos stampede across the screen while the reels spin, adding four to nine Wilds.
- Monkey Mayhem: Awards potential wins when the reels have stopped before all symbols are shuffled randomly to create a guaranteed win.
- Monsoon Wilds: One or two reels will be completely covered in Wilds while the reels spin.
- Sticky Vines: All symbols that are a part of a win and all Wilds from the initial spin (even if they are not part of a win) stick to the reels, and all other symbols spin again.
