Tarzan is a slot game by online gaming giant Microgaming. We’ve seen our fair share of superb slots by this provider and it’s regarded as among the leading manufacturers in the world for a reason. However, that reason doesn’t seem to be this slot game. There’s much detail to marvel at in the backdrop, but all in all you can’t help but notice the childish graphics. In addition, we’re not quite sure why traditional, retro slot machine symbols were included either. True, it’s a jungle theme, but we’re not sure that’s where plums and watermelons grow.
Tarzan features a 5 reel, 4 rows layout with a total of 40 pay-lines. Those, by the way, are not subject to adjustment. You can start betting with 40c per spin and increase that amount to reach the maximum of R40 per spin.
As for the symbols, we already mentioned that they include customary fruit from old-fashioned slot machines. There are apples, oranges, plums and watermelons. Next are the jungle wildlife representatives, such as the parrot, a chimp and a leopard. Following them are the familiar character from the book – Professor Porter, his daughter Jane and Tarzan himself.
Finally, the highest paying symbol is the Wild, which can also replace the lesser symbols to contribute to winning combos. It cannot substitute for the Scatter, however, which is the form of the Wheel of Fortune.
Landing the Scatter symbol will trigger the game’s Bonus feature. A Wheel of Fortune will appear, providing a selection of 4 different prizes for you to win. Among them are multipliers of up to 18x, as well as 12 free-spins.
In addition, there is also another bonus game called the Pick-a-Potamus Bonus feature. There you will have several hippopotamuses to choose from, each of which will offer a certain prize. Finally, you can score the jackpot and win up to 1,000 times your stake.
We wish we could say that the abundance of bonus features makes up for our initial discontent with the game’s graphics. Sadly, the payouts prove to be insignificant and the bonus game appears to be quite elusive.
