From the first moment Steven Spielberg released his first Jurassic park movie it was evident that he’s on to something great. The park quickly grew into a franchise that got its last volume from 2015 called Jurassic World featuring Chris Pratt as Owen, Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire and all sorts of those scary ancient animals as themselves.
Now that you think of it, it was only a matter of when and who will be the first one to grab rights to create a Jurassic World slot game. One of the biggest names in the industry, Microgaming, won the race and have come up with a remarkable 5-reel and 243 ways to win slot that is playable from as little as $0.30 making is available for a wide range of audiences. What sets this game apart is a cracking jackpot on some of 4 bonus games and eye-popping graphics that will drag you into the game.
There is little to tell about Microgaming that anyone who’s ever been in even the slightest of touches with gaming industry would not have already heard. Based on the Isle of Man, Microgaming have started redeveloping the gaming industry from the first moment they stepped on the scene in 1994.
Without ever looking back over hteir shoulder, Microgaming have taken the gaming landscape firmly under their feet and went on to reshape it, remodel it and rediscover it as well. Innovation, quality and reliability are the three words that best describe the developer boasting a huge portfolio of unique, top quality and branded slot titles, such as this particular one.
How to Play It
Jurassic World takes you into the recognisable environment with scenes from the movies and original characters bursting from behind and within the reels. Microgaming teamed up with Universal picture to create a highly dynamic game playable from $0.30 to $7.20 across all devices and platforms as would be expected.
Symbols on the reels – apart from the main characters which are presented with original photos from the movie – include six different dinosaurs. The wild is represented by the Jurassic World Logo and this particular symbol will substitute for all other symbols except the amber-encased mosquito Scatter.
The game starts with a hit on the spin button when you hope to land at least three matching symbols from left to right on any of 243 ways to win.
The action-packed Jurassic World slot bring a fast-paced adventure straight from the base game with a fantastic Indominus feature. This feature is triggered on a random winning spin, whenever you get somewhere between three or five times your stake. This is exactly when the big beast from the movie will jump up on the grid to boost your winning up to 1,000 your stake.
Three or more Scatters will engage the three-mode Free Spin feature. You are given an opportunity to explore three different localities in the Jurassic World which are chosen at random.
First up is the Gyrosphere Valley where you get 10 free spins with a multiplier trail which starts at 2x and goes upwards to 7x on each non-winning spin. Next on the map is the Creation Lab where once again you’ll be given 10 free rounds. The only difference here is that you get Rolling Reels which remove winning symbols and replace them with new ones thus increasing your chances of landing successive wins. Cryo Wilds are there as well, simply to top up your spins as they remain locked in place to boost your opportunities.
And finally, you have the Raptor Den where you get 10 free spins and Scatters that turn into Wilds and get locked in place for the duration of the feature. Three scatters during the bonus feature will top up the tally by five complimentary rounds until you hit the 15-spin mark.
Jurassic World is a medium variance slot with an RTP of 96.3%. Microgaming have packed it full with four impressive features and a couple of engaging delicacies which will make your playing experiences a remarkable one. The Jurassic World will reward the luckiest of players with a top jackpot in excess of 3,000 coins which translates into whopping 14,000 the stake.
Microgaming had a big task to fulfil as they did not want to disappoint the large army of Jurassic World’s followers. Universal Pictures have set the bar rather high and Microgaming should be praised for their efforts as it is clear they managed to live up to the expectations.
Impressive user interface, 3D graphics and neat, clean lines are only a small part of everything that’s great about this game. Best is yet to come with no less than 4 action-packed special features which have all you need – random cash boosts, free games, locked scatters acting as wilds and multipliers. What else could you ask for?
