Online casino software and game developer, Microgaming, has used the platform at iGB Live! this week to announce that one of their most popular properties, Jungle Jim, will return for another adventure after the massively successful El Dorado outing.
Last time we saw Jungle Jim
He was trawling through the Amazon jungle searching for the lost city of treasure El Dorado in a 5x3 slot game with twenty-five paylines.
Now the sequel, Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx is upping the ante in a major way. Developed by Stormcraft Studios, the follow-up will be bigger and better with a 5x5 layout and 50 ways to win.
Another Hit from Stormcraft:
Microgaming has high hopes for the new release as the studio developing it was already behind some very successful games like Fortunium, Agent Jane Blonde Returns, and Dragon Shard.
Just as a reminder, Fortunium was also a 5x5 slot but with 40 paylines and a steampunk theme and with mystery stacked wilds and a win booster feature.
Taking Center Stage at iGB Live!
The new project by the independent Stormcraft studio will take center stage at Microgaming’s stand iGB Live! in Amsterdam.
iGB Live! 2019 is taking place in Amsterdam and is the most hotly anticipated yearly iGaming event. Industry heavyweights will come together from the 16th to the 19th of July at RAI Exhibition and Conference Centre.
