Tarzan vs. Wild

This latest iteration of Aristocrat’s Tarzan slot franchise is featured on the gigantic new King Max cabinet. The game was specifically designed for the new cabinet, its 63.5-inch monitor providing a cinematic display for high-resolution graphics of the Ape Man swinging through the trees.

The base game is a ways-to-win format which begins in a three-by-five format for 243 ways to win, but with wild symbols, reels 3, 4 and 5 expand to a random height. At full expansion with six symbols, there are 576 ways to win on each spin.

Triggering symbols transform the screen into a dual bonus wheel. Slices on the top wheel are various numbers of free spins, plus the lower static jackpot bonuses of $20 (Mini), $50 (Minor), and $100 (Major). The bottom wheel contains multipliers up to 20X to be applied to any credit award.

One slice on the wheel triggers the Super Bonus Wheel, which includes the two top progressive jackpots, resetting at $1,000 (Super) and $10,000 (Grand).
