The lord of the jungle, Tarzan! Raised in the jungle, molded to survive in the harshest conditions the jungle has to provide, Tarzan is a legend that has lived on for a century. You may not jump from one vine to another, but you will win big with Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds, the two distinctive features you should pay attention to. Tarzan by Microgaming comes with a jackpot of outstanding €/$/£110,000, without the need to trigger a jackpot feature.
All in all, Tarzan provides a mix of stunning visuals accompanied by appropriate audio. Below you can find in-depth information on what’s under the hood.

In essence, Tarzan has the basic Microgaming interface. Everything that’s not on or next to the reels is pretty much standard. There’s the autoplay button, the bet settings and the bar the shows how much you’ve won. You can’t adjust the number of paylines, instead it’s fixed at a high 40. You can start playing Tarzan with an entry minimum bet of 0.40 or if you want to play with fire set the maximum bet which is 40 per single spin. The bonus feature trigger rate is decent, which makes the game more enticing. After all, if we don’t see any of the bonus games, it’d be just another Microgaming game.
During the testing period we noticed that Tarzan is much more generous at higher bets. However, this was just our experience. The RTP of 96% promises a lot, most likely we were on the winning end this time around. As expected, the logo of Tarzan is the Wild which substitutes for any other symbol except the Scatter symbol. 3 or more Spinning Wheel symbols, which is the scatter, brings a Bonus Wheel to the screen. Triggering this feature with 5 scatters is way better than triggering it with 3 for instance. However, something is better than nothing.
Without a doubt, the most lucrative and most thrilling part of Tarzan is the Free Spins bonus game. During these 12 free spins players benefit from Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds. Rolling Reels resembles NetEnt’s avalanche feature. All symbols that are part of winning lines explode, new symbols fall down to take their place. This sets the ground for some long winning sprees without having to pay for the spins. Rolling Reels do not reduce your Free Spins count.
Growing Wilds increases the wild count. More wilds appear on the reels, stacked or adjacent, they are put randomly on the reels. Because the number of wilds on the screen increases over time, the last few free spins turn into a Rolling Reel bonanza. Free wins will shower you!
The other bonus game is a pick and click game starring a hippo. It’s called Pick-a-Potamus in which players can choose up to 12 cash prizes. Keep the “Pop!” symbol at bay, because it can end the bonus game.
The bonus wheel can also reward you with a cash prize between 6x and 200x your bet.
If you’re fond of classic stories, sagas and you want to see more of them on the reels, Tarzan is amazing game. We really enjoyed it, mainly due to the frequency at which the bonus games are triggered and that you can actually benefit, profit from them. The payout percentage is surprisingly favorable. We wish Rolling Reels were available in base game. That will definitely put Tarzan at the top of the Featured games list.
