After the release of “The Legend of Tarzan” movie earlier this year, it is perhaps unsurprising to see the release of a new Tarzan slot machine.

Interestingly, though, the graphical style of this game bears little resemblance to this years darker Hollywood interpretation of the Tarzan story, instead opting for the more colourful and cartoon-like look of the 1999 Disney movie release.

About The Developer

Microgaming needs little introduction as they have been creating on-line slot machines for over two decades now. They have a reputation for creating games of the very highest quality, with excellent payouts to match.

This is just the latest in a long line of licensed games from the developer, following on from big name hits such as Jurassic Park, Playboy and Terminator 2.

How To Play

Simplicity is often the best design technique when creating the user interface for on-line slot machines, the fact that Microgaming learned a long time ago. It’s taken several years of constant refinements, but the current style is pretty much perfection.

Clicking the credits box toggles between showing your available balance in either coins or currency, whereas the bet box allows you to set the size of your stake.

Tabs located along the right edge of the screen open the paytable, instructions and banking screens, and two more icons in the top right corner open the game rules and toggle the music and sound effects on and off.

Special Features

During normal play Tarzan features stacked wilds and double height picture symbols, giving the possibility of winning on a large number of the games 40 pay lines simultaneously. Most of the big win potential though is, as ever, tied up in the games various features which are activated when three or more “Bonus” symbols land in view.

It is perhaps a little disappointing that half of the bonus wheel is taken up with small cash prizes of just 3x-6x your stake, but on the plus side, there are two segments each for the bonus game and free spins, as well as a single jackpot prize.

The bonus game is a simple “Pick-Me” style bonus. Twelve hippos are shown, ten of which hide prizes whilst the remaining two exit the bonus game immediately.

This kind of bonus is rarely as rewarding as the free spins, and it can be very frustrating if you end up picking an exit item before you have managed to collect any prizes. Still, with a little luck it is possible to get a decent win here, and most times it will certainly award something better than the cash prizes on the bonus wheel.

The free spins feature combines two popular features from other Microgaming slots, the “Running Wilds” (called expanding wilds in this game) from the Sofia feature in Playboy, and the Rolling Reels which have appeared in several other games such as Thunderstruck 2, Break Away, and Immortal Romance.

The stacks of wilds grow in size through the duration of the feature, and it is possible to get several very large wins one after another when a lot of wilds appear on screen at once.


Big wins are possible even during the base game with the right combination of stacked wilds and picture symbols, although such combinations are likely to appear extremely infrequently.

The jackpot slice of the bonus wheel awards a reasonable 200x your stake, beating the bonus games maximum of roughly 100x but doesn’t come close to the potential of the free spins mode. It’s difficult to calculate just how much could be won during free spins because of the particular and unusual combination of features, but several thousand times your stake is a certainty.


It is surprising that Microgaming didn’t opt to base this game on the more recent Tarzan movie incarnation, but there again light hearted themes do seem popular with slots players and the Disney movie was considerably more successful at the box office than this years version.

The unique characteristics of the free spins bonus will likely tempt many players into giving this game a try, and it will be interesting to keep an eye out for news of big wins in this game to find out just how much potential that feature really has.
