Jungle Reels Review
Welcome to the jungle, we've got fun and games introduces one of Guns N Roses greatest hits. It could also be a strapline for the latest addition to Jumpman's burdening slots and bingo network. Jungle Reels emerges from the same stable as Moon Bingo, Robin Hood Bingo and other brands. It offers visitors the chance to play bingo, top slots, table games and live casino. New depositing players can win up to 500 spins on Starburst thanks to the presence of the ubqiutious Mega Reel.
Jungle Reels is a very colourful site. A leafy green backdrop that represents the theme hosts the welcome offer and featured slots. A few small skulls hanging from the logo are a little bit weird and don't exactly convey a warm welcome. We're very disappointed not to see some Starburst gems scattered on the ground. Jungle Reels is designed to be accessible on desktop, tablet and mobile. No app is required if you wish to play on the move via your handheld devices.
Jungle Reels Welcome Offer
The Mega Reel is the Jumpman Slots standard welcome bonus and it's in play at Jungle Reels. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to earn one spin of the bonus wheel. A spin of the Mega Reel can win you anything from Amazon vouchers to 500 spins on Starburst or Fluffy Favourites. Terms apply and these include a x65 wagering requirement as well as a maximum bonus conversion of up to £250 - depending on lifetime deposits. Note that Mega Reel spins are not guaranteed so you could possibly end up with nothing for your deposit.
Like it's many sister sites, Jungle Reels gives players the chance to try slots from many leading providers including NetEnt, Yggdrasil, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming and Eyecon. Some Jumpman brands claim over 600 games but Jungle Reels is being more modest with "over 350". Slots can be found by newest, A to Z, popularity and - once logged in - your most played. Jungle themed slots are available and include Jungle Books, Jungle Jackpots, Jungle Jim, Jungle Spirit and even Neon Jungle!
Jungle Reels Promotions
Joining the slots at Jungle Reels are a growing selection of table games and live casino options. At time of writing roulette, blackjack and bacarrat options were available. We'd like to see Evolution Gaming products added to expand this section but it's nice to see it developing. Also under development is a new bingo channel. Pragmatic Play's bingo rooms and Bingo Millions games have replaced the derelict Jumpman rooms. These new products do offer a better bingo experience but Jungle Reels is predominantly about the slots so we don't anticipate bingo players will opt for this brand in search of games. Most certainly there are better options around for bingo players.
Promotions at Jungle Reels are the standard network offers. These include CashDrop for regulars and new players, Happy Hour every Wednesday and extra spins of The Mega Reel on deposits of £20 or more. Note that wagering terms still apply to these extra spins of the Mega Reel. A trophies scheme is also in play and this gives players opportunities for further turns on the Mega Reel. Players can increase their status and earn trophies by wagering at Hyper Slots and completing challenges. Tournaments and prize draws from slot providers regularly take place every month.
Player depositing and withdrawal terms at Jungle Reels are not the best and the x65 wagering on the bonuses is quite hefty. Jumpman also have now added a £2.50 transaction fee on all withdrawals. This means that if you withdraw £100 you actually only receive £97.50. Another issue worth considering is that the welcome bonus is not guaranteed. Whilst yes you can win 500 spins on a slot, you could also win nothing. Other platforms offer guaranteed bonuses and may be more tempting if you're attracted to brands based on bonus deals.
So does Jungle Reels offer fun and games? Well it does have an excellent choice of slots and it's nice to see regular new additions and improvements, especially in terms of bingo and casino. However Jungle Reels is limited in terms of the welcome offer and player promotions. Furthermore the transaction charge is disappointing.
