FEEL THE REAL GAME AND BECOME A WINNER AT OUR TOP CASINOS
When it comes to slot machines, Microgaming is arguably the king of developers, with most of their products hugely popular with all walks of gamers; whether they go old school or opt for modernity, their games seem to be instant hits. Tarzan, one of their newer releases, supports that theory 110%.
Sporting multidimensional 3D graphics, retelling a story we’ve all heard (in its various forms), we’re able to embed ourselves into the wild environment of the jungle, swinging from tree to tree with Tarzan. On our way we’ll have to pick the correct hippo, spin a wheel of prizes, and flex our pecs as we run towards the finish line of 1,100,000 credits.
Every aspect of the title screams success, but whether the game play will actually suffice is anyone’s guess without getting involved. And so, us brave explorers have donned our beige outfits and started a trek into the unknown.
Crying Out for a Bonus
So the scatter symbol is where it’s at, bringing in a wide array of gifts for you to sample upon your journey, with some of them undeniably better than others. This icon can pay out a mere multiple of your bet, but should you land over three of them then the feature round will start up, the wheel awaiting your spin.
This is where you can get that whopper of a jackpot, though it won’t reach that height unless you bet the max amount, and where you can unlock all the features: the spins, the Pick-a-Potamus Bonus, and general cash prizes.
Pick Me, hippy.
The Pick-a-Potamus round isn’t just fun because of its silly name, but because of how engaging it is. There’s 12 hippos in all that you can tap on to win prizes; you just need to keep going, bringing in the money until the word ‘Pop’ pops up and ends the round. We found we managed to get a good couple of goes before that dreaded word sounded the end of our fun. Not to worry though, as there’s the Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds to dive into.
This is the other feature of the wheel, and while on the surface they’re just part of the free spins machine, they’re exceptional extras that make it feel like you’re getting more for you money. Taking the Rolling Reels for example, that refers to getting multiple wins one after the other, while the Growing Wilds can keep going until you end up with as many as 15 covering your grid.
Introducing the Modern World
Tarzan has a lot to be dealing with already, but then he (and now you) also have the betting system of the game to contend with. On first glance it doesn’t seem to be time consuming, for in truth there’s only really the spin button and then an arrow to toggle open the menu. Well take hold of that arrow and open the settings section, as this is where setting your betting amount begins.
You can start from a small 0.01, which is great for all of you who like to go at a relaxed pace, but then you have the addition of needing to place coins of that value on each of the win lines, of which there’s 40. It isn’t a problem as such, as the pay-in is still relatively low, but some of you who go all the way to 0.10 might start feeling the pinch with ten of those in play on the full 40.
Inside this little nook is also where you’ll find the quick spins, your way to the fast lane. Let’s face it, the reels can spin extremely low, and when you’re in a hurry to win and finish up, you don’t really want to be waiting it out. Well now you don’t have to. Just click it and you’ll notice the difference in an instant.
Call of the Wild
You’ll have probably become used to reviewers praising Microgaming, and therefore await the day when a bad review rolls in. Sadly that won’t be happening here; the brand has done it again and created an excellent game. Tarzan is a real cash slot with a lot of personality, not to mention fluid game play and controls. Having to dip into the settings is a little annoying, but it’s a minor problem at best.
