Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar Slot Review
Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is one of the many games that Microgaming is releasing as an exclusive slot, and a title which was designed by the Gameburger Studios developers. With an excellent design, a couple of features that could prove interesting, and above average top payouts, I’m sure that the story will be appreciated by the platform’s players.
20 active lines will be present on the 5x3 reels used in Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar. The slot’s going to have a good mix of features, with free spins where 10x multipliers can apply, but also with wilds, scatters and the possibility to get the Escalating Jackpot, worth 5,000x the stake. The alternative is getting wins of up to 1,250x in the base game, or even better for the free spins. RTP is set to 96.38%.
Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar Betting and Prizes
$0.20 is the minimum bet required, with $0.01 line bets active then. The other end of the range is set to $20, with a line bet of $1.
One of the things that will get a player’s attention in any game, is the size of the top jackpot. The odds might be small, but everyone wants to at least have a chance to take home a big prize. Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar obliges, offering a top jackpot worth 5,000x the round’s stake.
Through regular combinations, the game can also deliver wins of up to 1,250x the stake, but first you need wilds covering all positions (possible through the Random Wild feature). Multipliers improve the potential of the game further, as they boost wins by up to 10x during free games.
A slot machine with medium volatility, a 33.26% hit frequency and a 96.38% RTP, Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar looks pretty good where the math model is concerned. It should appeal to most casual players, perhaps to some of the veterans as well.
The Wild logos, jungle themed as expected, will be able to land on the slot’s five reels, to be used as substitutes when the active lines that they are on end up with the rest of the required symbols as well. Rewards of 62.50x the stake are possible when wilds form combinations directly, with 1,250x the stake paid for a screen filled with such symbols.
A Random Wild feature can trigger and add 2-15 extra wilds to the game area.
A lot more interesting, though not as common, the Wheel scatter can be used to trigger a special feature that will reward you with free spins and multipliers. With 3+ Wheel scatters in view, the game offers you a spin on the wheel. The best case scenario is getting 30 free spins and a 10x multiplier for all wins, but it could be lower as well.
As for the top payout, that 5,000x jackpot, triggering it is a matter of getting enough Jewel scatters in view. This can happen on the 9 positions from the middle three reels. Depending on the number of Jewels landing at the same time, rewards vary between 1x and 5,000x the stake (3 to 9 symbols).
Theme & Design
The adventures of Tarzan serve as inspiration for this game, and they are going to include the jungle as the location, along with the two main characters that everyone expects to see. Tarzan and Jane are two of the main symbols, a Priestess of La is next, and then there is a Professor as well. The logos and jewels which serve as feature symbols are also there. Less relevant, but still designed somewhat appropriately for this story, the Royals show up with palm tree leaves behind them.
Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is a pretty good game, one of those slots that can appeal to plenty of players. It has big enough rewards that it could be fun for experienced players, and the risk is not quite as high, so casuals could also give it a shot. Everything else, from RTP to hit frequency and 10x multipliers, also tells us that it could be fun for more than a few players.
