Jungle Jim online pokie swings into Microgaming casinos
The 25-line video slot follows the travels and travails of an intrepid adventurer on his quest to find El Dorado – the legendary lost city of gold.
The eponymous, khaki-clad hero draws obvious inspiration from Indiana Jones, but with smatterings of James Bond and his fancy gadgetry.
The game uses Microgaming’s signature Rolling Reels layout, where winning symbols explode and new ones fall down to create numerous chances to win per spin.
Furthermore, each consecutive win caused by exploding symbols increases the Jungle Jim multiplier, which can rise to 5x in the main game.
It gets even better if you land three scatters to unlock 10 retriggerable free spins, during which the multiplier can go as high as 15x.
In a press release last week, Microgaming’s Neill Whyte said: “We’ve been eagerly awaiting Jim’s El Dorado adventure, and now the game is ready to launch, we are very excited.
“This character-led game is visually stunning and combines a set of proven features, such as the multiplier trail.
“We know operators are excited by this game and we believe Jungle Jim – El Dorado is all set to become a long-term player favourite.”
The Jungle Jim online pokies game will go live from September 7 at our top-ranked Microgaming pokies sites:
Quickfire signs new development deal with Pariplay
Microgaming has furthered its existing relationship with Pariplay, which has signed on as a full development partner for the Quickfire instant play platform.
The two Isle of Man companies have already worked together this year to integrate Microgaming’s game catalogue onto Pariplay’s FUSION platform – a content aggregation network that offers iGaming operators easy access to hundreds of casino games from the industry’s leading developers.
Now more than 400 Microgaming casinos web-wide will have the option to run Pariplay’s own titles, which include the Atari series of licensed online pokies and instant win scratchies.
“We’re excited to see our partnership with Microgaming, which has significantly diversified our FUSION content network, continue to evolve by Pariplay becoming a Quickfire development partner, and having our games added to their platform,” said Adrian Bailey, General Manager at Pariplay Ltd.
“With over 400 brands live on the open platform, Quickfire will extend the reach of our online scratch cards, slots and other games into new global markets.”
This is but the latest in a string of similar deals as Microgaming looks to diversify its catalogue and keep pace with the growing list of multi-supplier casino operators.
Other new additions to the Quickfire development team in 2016 include Gamevy, Just For The Win and Playson.
“Having content from a range of development partners is a core strategy for Quickfire, providing our operators with the very best gaming content available through one single integration,” said Quickfire head Tom Chamberlain.
“We’re thrilled to be extending our already strong relationship with Pariplay. Their games are a fantastic addition to the platform, and we look forward to working with the Pariplay team long into the future.”
