There are a few tales that have been mainstays through the years, which have entrenched themselves into popular culture. It matters not how many times the story has been told through books, plays and motion pictures; there’s always budget for a new rendition of the tale. Gameburger Studios is savvy enough to know this and has pulled off a masterstroke by landing the licensing agreement to develop Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar, which now means online casino entertainment is also a platform for this story to thrive. Plenty of winning opportunities have been attached to the new title, with various spinning wheels determining free spins and savage multipliers. Let’s go in for a closer look.
You just saw that we mentioned Gameburger Studios developed Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar, which might be a name unfamiliar to you. This is one of Microgaming’s micro studios, which basically operates under a different name. You might have played a slot named 9 Masks of Fire, which was developed under the Gameburger Studios name, however, you’ll most definitely know Microgaming as they’re famous for doing the Playboy online slot machine series. The graphics and animations are all on a very high level, as Microgaming is one of the biggest on the business, having been established in the 90’s. You’re most probably familiar with the story of Tarzan and Jane, so there’s no point wasting time explaining it.
The trend of the low maximum bet limit continues, as Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar only requires £20 as the maximum wager. This is definitely a result of market research, with casino and studios realising that players were never going to wager the £100+ that they were setting as the maximum bet. The minimum wager is 20p, so the betting window should be very manageable. The trend also seems to be five reel slots online these days, which Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is.
The symbols are where the theme of the slot’s titlecomes into fruition. It is here where all the characters from the originalstory claim a place on the reels. It goes without saying that the jungle manhimself takes the place of the highest value icon, while a tribal lady, Janeand another male explorer also take up positions on the reels. The symbols thatare lower in value, albeit still valuable if wagering a decent amount, areplaying card royals J, Q, K and A.
There’s a couple of symbols that do their part to give thegame plenty of excitement. The first of these is the wild, which is a blackpanther, and this one will act as any regular symbol in the game to make up a3, 4 and 5 of a kind winning combination. The only icon in Tarzan and theJewels of Opar that the wild won’t substitute is the Free Spins symbol, which you won’t have anyissues identifying.
The headlining bonus feature is a free spins game, andit takes a bit of a different look and feel than what you might be used to.First of all, you’ll need to land three free spins icons on the same spin.These symbols only land on reels 2, 3 and 4. Once you’ve managed this, you’llbe taken to a spinning wheel, which determines the number of free spins you’llbe awarded. The least you can snag is 10, while 30 free spins is the pinnacle.What makes things a little better, after determining your number of spins, isthat you proceed to a multiplier wheel, which applies a 2x – 10x multiplierto all wins during the free spins. Landing 3 scatters during the feature willadd more spins.
But wait, there’s also a Jackpot Scatter icon, andlanding 3 – 9 of these ona single spin will award a jackpot. Obviously, 9 Jackpot Scatters is the numberyou want to achieve.
Tarzan doesn’t exactly take on a new look here, as it’s the same thing in online slot machines form that you’ve seen on film. However, the bonuses are quite the treat and aren’t too complicated. They’re also quite interactive, so there’s a bit of a different dimension in Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar. Let’s just say, there’s scope for a swinging good time.
