Microgaming and Gameburger Studios Unveil New Tarzan Slot
One of the most anticipated slots from Microgaming for 2020 is about to go live at your local online casinos. The high-volatility follow-up to their classic Tarzan® series is developed by their independent studio Gameburger, which you may know for slots like Playboy Fortunes, 11 Champions, 9 Pots of Gold, and 9 Masks of Fire. The all-new Tarzan® and the Jewels of Opar™ is released on 20 October.
Played with 20 lines and 5 reels, the interface of the new Tarzan draws inspiration from the US land-based slot machines, which is a signature feature of this fairly young studio. This way the main features and win potential are visible on both desktop PC and mobile at all times. That includes the Jackpot Scatters feature, where for three or more players have a chance to win up to 5,000x their bet.
During the base game, Tarzan may occasionally swing by and drop random Wild symbols. In fact, he can generate up to 15 Wilds during this random bonus, creating thrilling win moments. The feature is also active in the main bonus.
To trigger the main feature, however, you’ll need Free Spin Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4. This will activate the Wheel Feature where you can win 10-30 free spins and an x2-x10 win multiplier on top of that. Note that the multiplier applies to all wins except Jackpot Scatters, so the maximum win potential of the game doesn’t change. During the free spins, getting another three bonus symbols will re-trigger the feature and add the starting number of freebies to the counter.
Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar can be played from €0.20 to €20 per spin. The volatility is on the higher end, so getting the main feature may require some effort and time. However, the game seems to be nicely balanced and there are relatively frequent wins in the base game, partly thanks to stacked symbols which can pay up to €37,50 for 5-of-a-kind on a single line. The theoretical average return to player or RTP is 96.38%, which is an okay.
Stay tuned for the full release of this branded slot that will happen on Tuesday, 20th October. Meanwhile, you can watch the official video trailer and pick your favourite online casino from our curated list of Microgaming sites.
