Theme, characters and environment
When you have set your coin size between 0.30 to 7.20, and hit “Spin”, the five reels are set in motion and the exciting adventure has officially begun. Amongst the symbols you have the Indominus Rex, that can boost your win up to 1000x total bet and 2 scatters turn wild at any given time. When you play Jurassic World you can also use the “Autoplay” option if you want to sit back and watch the show unfold without lifting a finger.
History and background
The first Jurassic Park movie came out 1993, based on the novel by Michael Crichton. Universal Studios actually bought the rights to the novel before it was even published, so it was an immediate success. Jurassic World is the fourth film in the Jurassic Park series, and it stars actors we love, like Christopher Michael Pratt and Irrfan Khan, which are both symbols in this video slot.
Microgaming have also created another game on this theme, called Jurassic Park. It was the first Jurassic game from this game developer, whose popular video slots are played by gaming enthusiasts all over the world. Most casinos that have Jurassic World also has Jurassic Park, so you can play both of them in the same place.
Environment and atmosphere
Dark blue is the over shadowing colour both in the background and in the game view, with lots of browns and greys because that is the natural colour of the dinosaurs. The ancient beasts are framed with luminous shapes in red, turquoise, yellow, green and purple, which is just enough colour to make the game interesting to look at visually. One cannot help to be sucked into the enigmatic quality of this well-designed video slot, and it might require quite a lot of spins until one of the free spins features is activated.
Symbols and soundtrack
Dinosaurs, adventure and excitement is the theme in this video slot, with a variety of characters and symbols that are closely related to the title of the game. The soundtrack and the sound effects are ok and fit well into the game in general. It is a bit cinematic and adventurous, and it puts you in the mood for some interesting and unique experiences. Amongst the characters we see:
- Different types of dinosaurs
- Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire Dearing)
- Irrfan Khan (Simon Masran)
- Christopher Michael Pratt (Owen Brady)
- The Jurassic logo (wild)
- Yellow Mosquito Fossil (scatter)
Jurassic Park logo is the wild symbol, which can substitute for all other symbol in the game, except for the scatter symbol, which is the yellow mosquito fossil. The wilds can form winning combos both on their own and fill in the blanks to complete other winning combinations. Wild are stacked up to 10 high, and a minimum of three scatters activates a free spins feature.
The Free Spins feature in Jurassic World gives players the choice of three different locations, starting off with 10 free spins to play with. In the Gyrosphere Valley there is a multiplier trail on non-winning spins up to 7x and in the Creation Lab you will find Rolling Reels and Cyro Wilds which are frozen for three winning free spins. If you find yourself in the Raptor Den the scatters are wilds, so it is possible to win an additional 5 free spins. During the bonus rounds players can get wins that are over 14,000 times the stake, and this is definitely the most appealing aspect of this video slot. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t the lucrative bonuses what it’s all about? Microgaming usually has that covered, this game included.
The three different free spins features (Gyrosphere Valley, Creation Lab and Raptor Den) are picked by random until you active the feature for the 15th time. Then you are able to choose which free spins feature you prefer. All different free spins locations come with 10 free spins, so you can choose which one you like the most based on the functions and features. Many players love the Gyrosphere Valley, because it has a Multiplier Trail which increases the multiplier on each non-winning spin. The rolling reels in the Creation Lab is of course also very popular, since it can give you multiple consecutive wins. Each free spin game has a unique quality and it is always fantastic when they are activated.
Jurassic Park logo is the wild, and like usual it can substitute for any symbol in the game except for the scatter symbol. The wilds can also form winning combinations on their own. It is a very nicely designed logo with the profile of a dinosaur skull.
The yellow symbol of a mosquito fossil is the scatter in this slot game, and if you land at least three of them you can see some real action in the free spins features. When two scatter symbols appear in one single spin, they both turn both wild in order to help you out with some extra wins.
Pros and cons of the slot
In conclusion, Jurassic World is a fantastic game, with incredible graphics and really good bonus features, especially the free spins feature “The Creation Lab” where the Rolling Reels can lead to continuous wins.
