The intro into the Heart of the Jungle slot game tells the story of a lady who has been rescued by a brave savage and together they are travelling to the heart of the treacherous jungle which is the backdrop of the online slot game. The graphics are fairly realistic looking while the sounds portray the theme with appropriate jungle sound effects.
The various symbols upon the reels help to tell the jungle themed story with themed images of jungle animals including a tiger; a chimpanzee; a parrot and an elephant. The reels also feature the two main characters, the lady and the brave savage, and the standard nine to ace playing card icons.
The Heart of the Jungle slot game was developed by Ash Gaming who fall under the Playtech group and features five reels, three rows and fifty pay lines as well as a turbo mode which sets the reels to spin at almost double the speed. The betting values of each pay line go from as little as a denomination of 0.01 up to the maximum denomination of 5.00 for each pay line. This makes the total maximum bet per spin a denomination of 250.
The Heart of the Jungle slot wild symbol is the symbol displaying the online slots real money Canada games logo. The wild symbol can assist in creating winning combinations by acting as a substitute for other symbols on pay lines. The wild symbol will only replace the regular paying symbols and not the scatter symbols. If the wild symbol is involved in multiple winning combinations then only the combination worth the highest pay out is awarded.
The wild symbol also pays out when three or more of them land consecutively on a pay line and during the Heart of the Jungle slot free spins bonus round the wilds become more active and have more advanced roles to play.
The jungle mask scatter symbols are the ones that trigger the Heart of the Jungle slot free spins bonus round. These need to appear in any position on the first, third and fifth reels simultaneously to be taken to a trail map where additional free spin features are unlocked every time the main feature is triggered.
From the first Heart of the Jungle slot free spins bonus round trigger the deep jungle feature is active. This awards eight free spins, a 5x multiplier and an ultra-spin which is one additional spin with a 25x multiplier. After the fifth trigger the crystal falls feature becomes active where ten free spins are awarded with four stacked wilds for every spin. When the tenth trigger is reached the golden mountain feature is activated where fifteen free spins are awarded with wilds that stay in position on the reels and nudge up or down for every spin. After the fifteenth trigger the lost city of Zantar feature becomes active to award twenty five free spins and wilds that shift horizontally with increased multipliers.
