Jurassic World Slot Review

Jurassic World is a 243 ways-to-win slot from Microgaming, and it’s based on the dinosaur blockbuster movie that came out in 2015. And of course, it’s also a sequel to the popular Jurassic Park slot and movie.

How to Play

Micorgaming released this sequel to its hit game, Jurassic Park, and of course it’s also a fantastic tribute to the Jurassic World movie itself. This game has the genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the infamously intelligent Indominus Rex, and you’ll be spinning with these guys as well as the heroes in this big, shiny slot.

Getting started with this game is surprisingly easy. As with all 243 ways to win games, you have to bet on all 243 lines at the same time. So all you have to do is adjust your bet size. It goes from £0.30 to £7.20 per spin – which makes a game enjoyable for casual players as well as high rollers. Once that’s done, you’re ready to spin.

There’s the option to use Auto Play, which lets the machine spin by itself for 10, 25, 50 or 100 rounds.

Important symbols in Jurassic World

Wild: Jurassic World logo

Scatter: Amber

The other symbols, from highest to lowest value are:

  • Owen
  • Claire
  • Simon Masrani
  • Hoskins
  • 6 dinosaurs: Indominus Rex, T-Rex, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus, Dimorphodon, and Ankylosaurus

Jackpots

The fixed jackpot in Jurassic World may not sound very impressive at first. 5 scatters (the Amber) will get you 720x your total bet. But by the time you spin 5 scatters, you will invariably also trigger the bonus game, with more cash to be won. This adds up rather nicely and quickly. Also watch out for Indominus Rex – you could win 1,000x your bet. More in the Special Features section below.

 

Special Features and Bonuses

Jurassic World is famous for its 4 bonus features.

3 of these bonus games include free spins and are triggered by spinning 3 or more scatters.  They are awarded randomly until you reach the 15th time of hitting a bonus game, at which point, you’ll get to choose your bonus feature:

Gyrosphere Valley: 10 free spins, during which you’ll have a Multiplier Trail. The multiplier increases with every win that doesn’t win, and after a winning spin it’s reset. This is literally a win-win bonus game!

Creation Lab: 10 free spins, which has Rolling Reels and Cyro Wilds. With Rolling Reels, the winning symbols disappear to make way for new symbols and can award multiple wins. The Cyro Wilds are like Sticky Wilds and can remain for 3 spins.

Raptor Den: 10 free spins, during which scatters are also wilds. These are held in place until you spin more to land yourself more free spins. 3 or more scatters will get you an additional 5 free spins.

Last but not least, there is the Indominus Feature:

Indominus Feature: this is triggered completely randomly during the base game only. And when this monster of a dinosaur takes over your screen, you could be running away with up to 1,000x your total bet.

Graphics and Sounds

Jurassic World’s theme is based on the movie, so you’ll see characters – both human and prehistoric dinosaurs! – in this slot. It’s a smooth slot overall, background scenes can change and wins will show flashing lights. However, in this modern day and age, unlike all the dinosaur genetic engineering, Jurassic World is not the most innovative slot from a multimedia perspective – the symbols look a bit like football trading cards. All that having been said, when you do hit the Indominus feature, it’s quite impressive when the beast takes over your screen – you might want to run away but try to stay put because that’s when you’re looking at rolling in some serious money!

Conclusion

Jurassic World is a fantastic slot to be playing. It’s packed with plenty of rewarding bonus features, with multipliers, sticky wilds and free spins. And with 243 ways-to-win, players can walk out of this Microgaming video slot with a reasonably good payout. It’s a fitting sequel to the Jurassic Park slot, so fans should definitely take a look at this game.
