Jurassic World is a 5 reel, 3 row online slot from Global Gaming (ex Microgaming) with 243 Ways to Win and a maximum win of 14,000x your stake.
It’s themed on the Hollywood movie of the same name, and is a medium volatility slot. The Return to Player (RTP) is 95.5%. This game was launched in June 2016.
If you loved the Jurassic Park movie franchise and the books by Michael Crichton that inspired them, then this collaboration between Universal Studios and those slots leaders, Games Global (ex Microgaming) to create the Jurassic World slot will have you smacking your lips like a T-Rex!
With a long tradition of bringing big creatures onto a smaller screen (check out the King Tusk slot if you don’t believe us) – dinosaurs were a logical next step for this game provider. As a dino fan, I couldn’t wait to land a T-rex or a group of raptors onto the reels.
Time for some Spin-o-saurus action!
Look and Feel
As you’d expect from a big money game like this, there are some large creatures on the prowl, and with plenty of bonus features and graphics that are straight from the big screen, this slot does not disappoint. You could probably do with calling up the reserves from the Bounty Hunt slot to sort them out!
The slot’s whole look and feel is themed closely on the blockbuster movie. The backdrop to the reels is a gigantic sea tank containing one of Jurassic Park’s biggest aquatic dinosaurs and the reels are headed with the film logo.
It’s clear what you’re going to get, which is basically hunted down by massive dinosaurs! Even if you’ve never seen any of the movies, you will still love the high-quality design of this game.
The soundtrack booms out with the familiar tones of the music right out of the movie. It’s a soaring and stirring slot with great atmosphere.
Jurassic World Slot Gameplay
This 5 reeler is bright and cheerful like the Neon Jungle slot and a real entertainer to play.
The reels are full of some familiar faces – and that’s before we talk about the humans!
The high value icons are all the stars of the Jurassic World movie, including the heroic keeper, Owen, Claire the Manager, Hoskins the security expert and the billionaire park owner Masrani. Rather unfairly in my opinion, the dinosaur cast are the lower value icons with a Pteradactyl, Velociraptor, Ankylosaurus, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Indominus. There are a few new ones in there next to the usual stars: the T-Rex and the Raptors.
Wilds And Free Spins
The Wild is Jurassic Park logo and this substitutes for any icon except the Scatter. The slot’s Scatter is the piece of amber with the dino-DNA in it and key to the bonuses.
In the base game there are some pretty neat features including the randomly appearing Indominus Rex cropping up, awarding some good multipliers that will shock you back into the Jurassic era with x100 up for grabs.
When you’re in the base game and you are lucky enough to land two Scatters in the same spin then these become Wilds making more chances for a win.
This game comes with a tasty bonus feature too. Just land 3 or more of those amber Scatters and you trigger another world of free spins which come in three different side games which are chosen at random.
Gyro Trip and More
There’s the Gyrosphere Valley Game, so called because of that ill-feted ride in the movie. This side game comes with 10 free spins and a rather nice multiplier that incrementally increases until a win ends the mode.
The Creation Lab, the side game where all that DNA happens, comes with 10 free spins but this time there’s a rolling reels feature whereby winning icons are replaced by new icons, making for more winning combos, there are also Cryo-Wilds which stick around for 3 whole spins.
Then of course…there’s the Raptor Den. Once again there’s that generous 10 free spins but this time you have frozen Wild Scatters which means that all those amber Scatters act as Wilds and stick around to create a free spin. Landing an additional 3 Scatters, translates into 5 more free spins!
Pros and Cons
Great graphics from the blockbuster movie
Max win 14,000x your stake
Chosse from 3 different free spins bonuses
RTP on the lower side – maybe to pay for the licensing fee?
Jurassic World is a winner of a slot. It’s glossy, expensive looking and has some neat features. I loved all the true to the movie styling which transport you into a world of big predators and danger. I did find it hard to trigger those juicy features- but as we all know, that could just be the luck of the draw!
This can trigger randomly in the base game. You will win between 3 and 50 times your total stake. The Indominus Rex can show up and gift you a multiplier between 10 and 200x on the cash prize. The max win is a tidy 1,000x your total stake.
Yes, this has been a popular theme for slot developers. There is the original Jurassic Park slot which is also good. There is also Jurassic World: Raptor Riches. and Jurassic Park Gold by Stormcraft Studios. If we are talking of other dino slots called Jurassic that are not connected to the movie franchise, well there are plenty of those too (Jurassic Juniors by Eyecon for example).
