The age of the dinosaurs is back and you have the chance to hunt down different kinds of dinosaurs that are walking around the Jurassic land.
Set against the backdrop of a volcano and desert land, Jurassic Island is a 5 reel 25 payline video slot delivered in brilliant graphics equally enjoyable on all devices.
With the sounds of the volcano and the squeaks of flying dinosaurs, the music prepares you for the culmination of the game when you have to shoot the giant animals in order to get multipliers.
A hunter is there to keep you company and help you get to the choice of four bonus rounds. You are in for many Free Spins, stacked wilds and other prizes, so stick around.
Leading gaming software development company, Playtech is based on Isle of Man and listed on London the London Stock Exchange. Award-winning developers are holding on to their leading position firmly by working constantly on developing new and exciting games.
How to Play It
Face to face with the mean-looking dinosaurs you will spin five reels and three rows with all the typical functions that you can find in any slot. The game play is pretty simple and straightforward. Set your bet and start the spinning.
In case you wish to speed things up you can use Turbo mode or you can lay back and switch on Auto spin.
The main characters in the game are the Hunter and a really scary dinosaur who acts as game’s Wild so you better get used to it. It can replace any symbol, but the Hunter, that is, the Scatter.
Hunter will appear across the reels with one sole purpose – to help you trigger the bonus round. So, don’t expect any money from him. The only dinosaur that has a benevolent face is the green herbivore that will pay 1,000 coins for five of a kind which is the most you can get from any of these creatures.
The rest of the animals are also dinosaurs who don’t look so friendly and even one skeleton head of a prehistoric animal. The bottom of the payouts table is reserved for playing cards symbols created from bones.
Playtech has really gone out of their way to reinvent the bonus games and typical Free Spins. Even though there will be only one bonus round to trigger, you will have a choice of four options to play. But first make sure that you get at least Hunters on the reels. With more Hunters you get more Free Spins.
First one of the options you can choose to play is Multiplier Free Games that triple all of your wins and depending on how many Scatter symbols you landed, you can get 10, 15 or 30 Free Spins. The good news is that the Scatter symbol can add Free Spins during the free play too.
It will be enough to land 2 for 3 extra spins, while three Scatters will add 10 extra spins, four Scatters award 15 and finally five Scatters will add 30 additional free spins. According to the information provided by the developer this option of the Free Spins is highly volatile, which in practice means that hefty prizes might pass you by here.
The second option is Carnivore Free Games that takes away the hassle with low paying symbols and leaves only the dinosaurs. It will get scary, but it might be worth it. As for the Free Spins, it is the same as in the previous game. You can get up to 30 Free Spins initially and up to 30 more during the free play.
Raptor Free Games bring a slightly higher number of Free Spins: 16, 24 or 40 for three, four or five Scatters and it also adds as much free spins depending on how many Scatters appear during the free play. This variation of the Free Games comes with stacked Wilds.
The last option you can choose, Hot Shot Hunter Bonus, has nothing to do with the free play but it does represent a chance to earn some massive multipliers. Actually, what you need to do is shoot the dinosaurs that are running in front of you.
The flying dinosaur can bring the loot between 3x to 50x multiplier, while the green dinosaur can add a multiplier of up to 120x. There is one more dinosaur left to shoot – the white one which can earn you between 6x and 180 x multiplier.
As for the base game, you can rely on the tyrannosaurus to spread across the reel should it come as a part of a winning combination.
The maximum amount you can win during the base game is 1,000 coins for five green dinosaurs, which is not much but if you choose Hot Shot Hunter Bonus, you stand to win a 180x multiplier.
On the other hand, Raptor Free Games hold a chance to get up to 80 Free Spins. The maximum stake is limited to $125, while the return to player is around 96%.
Jurassic Island is a high variance slot that brings a lot of exciting options through four different bonus games, but we are not sure if it will be as lucrative as the games promise. It might just happen that you end up looking at the reels spinning without any wins.
The spins will be free but that is not much of a consolation. If you are not a fan of taking risks and playing highly volatile slots, then you should probably skip this one despite the amazing audiovisual experience.
