Gonzo’s Quest slot review Jungle Jim El Dorado slot review
Before you ask, yes I did do that strike through title on purpose. Jungle Jim El Dorado is about as uninspired a slot as you can get. Microgaming know exactly how hugely popular Gonzo’s Quest is (the NetEnt classic slot) and as they seem to be only capable of coming up with one original idea of their own per year these days so they have just gone and ripped off NetEnt completely. Not only the same game mechanics as Gonzo’s Quest but they have even taken the same exact theme with Jungle Jim taking over the mantle of the great Gonzo.
I know that a lot of the lesser slot providers copy classic slot formulae and I know that even the big boys take inspiration from each other but this one is ridiculous. Microgaming should be better than that, they should be bigger than that and they should be leading the way rather than hanging on NetEnt’s coat tails like a lost little puppy.
How very very sad that they have stooped this low.
That being said, if Jungle Jim is half the slot Gonzo’s Quest is then they are bound to have a big winner on their hands.
I’ll give you the Microgaming blurb now:
“In this innovative 25-line slot, our intrepid adventurer is on an epic quest to find the legendary city of gold. Rolling Reels™ and a golden Multiplier Trail take players on a journey of untold riches where multipliers can build up to 5x in the base game and 15x in free spins! Follow Jim on his search for El Dorado and discover a trail of fortune with a 0.25 minimum bet and 92,000.00 max win.”
And then leave you with a couple of videos of the original from way back in 2010 and 2012:
Gonzo’s Quest for Eldorado / Jungle Jim El Dorado
Gonzo’s Quest™, Net Entertainment’s first platinum game launched in 2010, has quickly become recognised as an international blockbuster.
Based on the historical character of Gonzalo Pizzaro, our conquistador sets off to find the lost city of gold – Eldorado. Boasting exceptional 3D graphics and a host of uniquely entertaining features, Gonzo’s Quest™ sets the benchmark in online casino games — and now on mobile.
Shame on you Microgaming, for shame, for shame.
Update 25/07/2016: Today Microgaming released their official preview video for Jungle Jim, and as you can see even down to the very last detail this is just Gonzo’s Quest:
Meet Jungle Jim, an intrepid adventurer on a quest for lost treasure. In this exciting new 25 line slot game, Jim’s journey has taken him deep into the heart of the jungle in search of the legendary city of gold. Armed with his bag of high tech gadgets, Jim never turns down the challenge of a great treasure hunt,
especially if it gives him an excuse to update Instagram with an epic new selfie. What better way to uncover big wins than with the Rolling Reels™ feature, where all winning symbols explode on screen and a new set of symbols drop down, allowing for multiple win opportunities!
