When Universal announced that they would be releasing a new Jurassic Park movie in 2015, everybody knew that Microgaming would follow on from their Jurassic Park slot machine with one based on the fourth movie in the franchise, Jurassic World. Jurassic World is scheduled to be released this summer, and it is already shaping up to be just as exciting and authentic as its predecessor.
Look and feel
Jurassic World’s design is very much in the same vein as the original Jurassic Park slot game. Expect to find decent features, Microgaming’s customary 243 ways to win payline structure, and dirt-cheap bets throughout the slot.
This slot has been designed with Universal Studios’ blessing, so from a graphical perspective, players can expect to find the heroes of the Jurassic World movie on the reels of this game, as well as the loveable and legendary dinosaurs from the film and series. Claire Dearing, Owen Brady, Simon Masrani, and Vic Hoskins all make an appearance, as do the Ankylosaurus, Pteranodon, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor and the star of the film, the mutant Indominus Rex.
Jurassic World features Microgaming’s 243 ways to win payline structure, which means you won’t be able to adjust any of the paylines in the game. Coin values and the number of coins a player can stake per spin can be altered, though, giving Jurassic World floor and ceiling bets of 30p per spin, and £7.20 per spin, respectively.
Yes, this is a game which is as cheap as chips to play. The slot contains a non-progressive jackpot which is capped at 1,000x your total bet.
Wild symbols are back in Jurassic World, and they appear as the film’s logo. These symbols can replace all other icons save for scatters, and can appear stacked. Scatter symbols are once again the amber symbols, and if only 2 appear on the reels they will turn into wilds in lieu of a bonus, which is helpful.
Three or more scatters will trigger a free spins bonus round. There are three tiers to this bonus round. You will be randomly taken to one of the three levels, but once you’ve triggered the bonus round 15 times, you will get to pick where you wish to play your spins. In Gyrosphere Valley, players can enjoy 10 spins with increasing multipliers on non-winning spins.
The Creation Lab bonus offers 10 spins with a rolling reels feature and Cryo Wilds (frozen wilds). Lastly, the Raptor Den bonus promises 10 free spins with wild scatters. These scatters double up as wild symbols and can help you retrigger the bonus round.
