Game description

Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx Slot (Microgaming)

Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx SlotThis slot is the second we have witnessed from this developer with the Jungle Jim as the main character. In the previous series, the adventurer sets out on a tour to South America, in search of El Dorado. However, in this new series, we see him braving the hot weather in Egypt, as he searches for treasures that are hidden in the Sphinx.

Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx have the usual 5x4 reels with up to 35 active lines. However, the game has the potential to go up to 5x5 reels with 50 pay lines.

I tried this slot and here is my review:

Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx’s have very good potential and payouts can go as high as 6,000xs. It also has an excellent RTP which currently stands at 96.30%.

The game has a long list of features that include multipliers, free spins, rolling reels, and win boosters among others.

Betting and Prizes

With this slot, I was able to select a wager for each round. What I noticed is that the game has a low start-up price, and I was able to place a bet at only $0.10. The highest amount you can use per spin is $20.

Although the single wins of the game do not pay much (pays only 10x stake). The multipliers do better and they can pay up to 20xs in free spins mode.

On the variance part, I noticed that Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx is a highly volatile game but with a good RTP, the risk is not as bad.

Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx Slot Features

Microgaming is one of the most reputable game software developers in the industry and I knew I would get excellent features from this slot.

One of the most notable features of this slot is the rolling reels. With it, you can be able to remove winning symbols, and new ones will immediately appear on the empty positions. This will continue as long as you get new wins.

Actually, continuous waves of new symbols bring along multipliers which have the potential to increase your wins.  

If you manage 3+ scatters, the slot will award you free spins, and here, the multiplier starts from 2xs, rather than 1x that is offered for the single wins.  This has the potential to boost the Rolling Reels multipliers up to 20xs.

The game has wilds as well and they work in the usual way of substituting the regular symbols each time you form new winning combos.

Theme & Design

If you are an admirer of adventure, then this is the game for you. Microgaming used an adventure theme that borrows heavily from Ancient Egypt.

The symbols on this slot include Jungle Jim, logos, pots, a treasure chest, gemstones, and a Book of Dead.  


Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx may lack in design, however, the slot is fun to play and I must admit that I was really thrilled by the virtual tour to Egypt.

With such an excellent RTP, plenty of cool features and high payout potential, I can say it’s one of the best releases by Microgaming in a long time.
