Tarzan Pokie Expected To Be Released in December
In Tarzan, Microgaming is going to offer us a themed game, one which gets inspiration from a Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, published in a magazine in 1912, and then in a book format in 1914.
The story tells of a boy that is raised by the great apes, left without his parents in the middle of the African jungle.
He goes back to civilization eventually, meets a girl and becomes a lord after taking back his heritage, of a British lord. It’s a very popular story, and there were a lot of movies, TV shows, animation films and books that were created based on it.
Microgaming obtained the rights to the Tarzan license, and they’ve designed a game with 40 lines, which is going to be released in December 2016. The game will apparently have stacked symbols, wilds, bonus scatters and bonus wheels that can trigger free spins, cash prizes or other bonus games.
What We Love
I think that the visuals are important these days, especially since pokie machines no longer have to worry about download speeds as much. Tarzan will have that high quality design that you want from any new Microgaming title, and it will look as good as any animation film.
The three main symbols appear to show us Tarzan, his girl Jane, along with an older gentleman.
Next, we’re looking at symbols with wild creatures, including here a small monkey, a leopard and a bird. Finally, on the list of symbols there are also non-related fruit icons, with apples, plums, melon or oranges, none of them being typical for an African jungle tree.
Expect to find stacked symbols in the game, of the regular variety which form combinations. They’re not very tall though, each of the three symbols coming in only two symbols tall. The three stacked icons are the ones with the human characters.
Should you have wild symbols appear in the game, they will be capable of substituting for other symbols, but only for the kind that would form combinations on the 40 lines. They wouldn’t be good replacements for the Bonus scatters.
The feature that seems to offer the most appears to be the Bonus Wheel, which is the scatter in this case. The way it happens in most games, it will be required to appear in three positions or more. Getting these symbols in the required numbers, without mattering what the position is, will trigger a bonus game.
In this bonus game you’re going to gain access to a wheel which will spin, and will determine the kind of reward that you will get. It can be a small prize, or it can be the jackpot worth 200 times the bet.
It can also be a bonus game where you pick from a bunch of hippos to get prizes, or a round of very interesting free spins (with Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds).
What We Do Not Like
The jungle has plenty of fruits in its trees, so Microgaming could’ve chosen some of those to use for low paying symbols, rather than going for apples, plums or watermelons.
Tarzan has the right design, the features are sort of interesting, and hopefully the payouts will be big.
