iSoftbet are well on the way making a name for themselves and decided to release their own version of Raging Rhino.
It could also be that the creatives may have lacked inspiration, software providers sometimes run out of fresh ideas. In the music industry, they used to solve this problem by filling vinyl records with so-called “fillers”. Songs that were not up to usual standards and were only meant to be able to finish an album and quickly release it.
We expect it to work the same way for game developers.
If they don’t know what to develop next, one of these 3 easy choices is always made:
- The next clone of the Book of Ra slot
- Another Irish Leprechaun slot
- The umpteenth Raging Rhino Clone
You may not be surprised we were not exactly jumping for joy to review Jumbo Stampede.
How does the Jumbo Stampede slot machine work?
Jumbo Stampede has 6 reels with 4 rows of symbols. Because it is a win all ways video slot, there are no paylines, but 4,096 ways to win.
Betting is possible from $€ 0.20 per spin, and that increases to a maximum of $€ 20 per spin.
That may all seem a bit tame, however, don’t forget, these are wild animals, straight from the jungle. This slot is high variance and can, therefore, generate substantial wins even with small bets.
The theoretical payout rate is 95.94%.
Symbols and payouts
The wild animals in this video slot are the premium symbols, with the elephants in front, closely followed by the rhino (duh!) and panther.
Spin 6 elephants and you win 150 coins. 5 rhinoceroses or 5 panthers yields a payout of 125 coins. The antelope and zebra are also worth a decent 100 coins for a 6-of-a-kind.
The card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A award you between 50 and 75 coins for a 6-of-a-kind.
Most symbols also appear in stacks of 2 or 3 symbols. In combination with the wild symbols (the sun) very lucrative combinations can arise.
Free spins bonus
3 or more scattered golden elephants in the red circles activate the free spins bonus.
Depending on the number of scatters you win 8, 15, 20 or even 50 free spins.
When you spin at least 2 scatters during the free spins, you are rewarded a minimum of 5 extra free spins.
During the free spins there are two extra boosters active:
- The wilds on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 contain an extra multiplier of 2 x or 3 x
- The elephants no longer need to appear next to each other on the reels to get a price.
Especially the fact that elephants don’t have to be spun on the reels in a row anymore is a funny twist: we hadn’t seen that before.
With this extra feature, you will find it is quite easy, in combination with the wild multipliers, to hit some nice payouts in the bonus game.
And occasionally you hit a super big win, which is very well possible with this video slot.
Our verdict on the Jumbo Stampede
This slot is another title in a long list of Raging Rhino clones, and we are, if we are honest, a bit done with it.
Whether you use elephants or any other animal, it can’t excite us anymore. It is still just another cheap Raging Rhino copy.
There are a few small tweaks in the (bonus) game and that all looks fine and dandy, but it’s time this stops.
Dear iSoftbet, don’t take this personal, but you can do better than this tired release.
2 out of 5 stars.
