Produced by world-famous developers Microgaming, Jurassic World was a hugely anticipated slot released in June 2017. Based around the box office smash-hit movie of the same name, which came out in 2015, it is another addition to the recent history of big-name movies that have made a successful transition to the slots world.
The movie itself proved to be one of the world’s highest-grossing productions ever, and Jurassic World slots have been almost as popular with online casino fans.
The game is a medium variance slots title with 5 reels and an impressive 243 pay lines, and a respectable RTP of 96.3%. It boasts an impressive jackpot of 3,000 coins or 14,000 times your original stake, and with stakes ranging from $/€/£0.30 to $/€/£7.20 per spin, it offers a solid playing experience for low stakes players and high rollers alike.
The game offers a slick playing experience and is packed with characters from the movie, including Chris Pratt’s character Owen Brady and Claire Dearing, played by Bryce Dallas Howard. These leading characters and others appear as symbols on the reels, along with the real stars of the show: the dinosaurs. Six of them, the Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Indominus, Pteranodon and Velociraptor all make an appearance, helping to recreate some of the feel of the movie.
But where this game really excels is in its impressive array of free spins bonus rounds. The Indominus Bonus is triggered whenever a player lands a win of between three and five times their original stake while playing the main game. When this bonus is triggered, it gives you the chance to win an impressive 1000 times your original bet if you land the Indominus symbol.
Another player-friendly bonus game is Gyrosphere Valley. When this option is triggered, it provides 10 free spins together with an array of stacked wilds and a multiplier trail. Although the trail begins low at 2-times, it rises to a ten-times multiplier on each non-winning free spin.
The Creation Lab: Cascading Reels is arguably the game’s feature bonus. This is reminiscent of the game mechanics featured in the legendary Gonzo’s Quest slots game. The bonus gives players 10 free spins, but the symbols that can lead to a payout are swapped for new tiles, with the result that you can land a big win on each of your free spins.
We should also mention the Raptor Den Bonus. When this bonus is launched, players can enjoy 10 free spins including scatter wilds and sticky scatters, and the feature relaunches every time you land three or more scatters on the reels.
Online slots players have become used to big-movie tie-in titles, but in a crowded field, this one stands out, and not just for the way that it invokes the feel of the movie. With an impressive payout, plenty of customisable bet options and an array of player-friendly bonuses, this is a monster-sized slot that will appeal to newcomers and experienced online casino gamers alike.
