A Feature Filled Pokie with Progressive Jackpots Based on the Lord of the Jungle
You might not believe it by the look of him, but Tarzan is now over a century old. Edgar Rice Burroughs’ famed novel ‘Tarzan of the Apes’ first appeared in 1912 as part of a magazine publication and would see an incredible 25 sequels. The original story tells the tale of how Lord Greystoke is raised in the jungle by apes, after the death of his parents. Aristocrat seem to be very keen on the story, as this is their third Tarzan related pokie, after ‘Tarzan Lord of the Jungle’ and ‘Tarzan: The Legend Returns’.
Reasons to Give Tarzan of the Apes a Spin
Tarzan of the Apes pokie is an action-packed pokie with a stunning jungle design. There is plenty to get your teeth into game-play wise too – here are the highlights:
During the base game of Aristocrat’s pokie Tarzan of the Apes there are two features which are sure to give your bankroll a boost:
Stampede Remix – During the base game you’ll find small mask symbols accompanying the standard range of symbols. Land five mask symbols in a row on a win line and the Stampede remix feature is activated. Each of the winning mask symbols will now turn wild and every symbol of the game will now swirl and reposition. At the end of this ‘remix’, the reels will be re-evaluated. With at least five wilds in this mix, a nice win is highly likely.
Tarzan Wild Swing – At any time during the game, Tarzan may swing across the reels leaving a trail of Tarzan symbols on the reels. With Tarzan being the highest paying symbol in the game, this can lead to some very tasty wins.
The main feature of the game surrounds the bonus wheels, which is activated by hitting three or more bonus wheel symbols in the base game. You’ll now get to enjoy the spin of three bonus wheels, so you’ll be guaranteed three prizes.
On each of the wheels you’ll find a variety of wins. Many of the segments on the wheel contain simple credit wins, which will be added to your bankroll immediately. You’ll also win the progressive Jackpots directly on these wheels too. There are four jackpots in all – the Mini, The Minor, The Major and the Grand, with the Grand Jackpot (which pays more than five figures) appearing only on the third wheel.
You can also gain entry into a couple of extra bonus features via the wheel. One is a pick me adventure round, where Tarzan will fight gorillas and leopards on the way to the City of Gold. Another will see Tarzan shoot a series of arrows onto the reels, turning many symbols wild.
Tarzan of the Apes plays out on the 5×3 configuration found at so many casino gambling machines. The game features a total of 25 win-lines, that each pay from left to right. Alongside the high paying and double stacked Tarzan symbol are Jane, jungle creatures in zebras, deer and elephants, while bongo drums and a machete also appear. Last but certainly not least, you’ll also find the apes, which are a must for any Tarzan themed pokie.
If you enjoy pokies with a BIG design, this is the game for you. The action takes place as you sit in the immersive iChair, with surround sound to keep you zoned in. The visuals in the base game are eye-catching and colourful while things move up a notch during the features. With three impressive large bonus wheels on the upper screen, and the cartoon style action in the features, there is a whole lot to like.
Tarzan of the Apes is one of those gambling machines you just can’t walk past on the casino floor. The visuals throughout the game are big and bold, while the gameplay is hard to top. With two features in the base game, a winning boost is never far away. Enter the wheel bonus features and you’ll be delighted with the three-fold prize, which could see you land progressive jackpots and further features. This is a highly recommended slot. Although it is advisable to wear more than just a loin cloth when playing!
