Jurassic Park™ is a 5×3 reel game developed in commemoration of the well-loved and celebrated film of the same title. It transports players more than 65 million years in the past and bring them into contact with creatures such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Velociraptors, and the Triceratops, to name a few. In this online slot game, the prehistoric dinosaurs are not something you’d flee from, but welcome with open arms as you rake in your winnings.
This brand new online adventure slot game leads the player on a quest through an island jungle setting, starting from the Base Game, where the most recognizable scenes and cast of the characters will be revealed via videos. Jurassic Park™ offers 243 ways to win, all distributed in different game modes, such as the T-Rex Alert Mode and the Free Spins mode, where bonuses are aplenty. Players win awards for left to right symbol combinations, while way wins multiply by coins bet. The Scatter symbol, however, pays no matter what position it is in and will be added to way wins. The wins with the Scatter symbol will also multiply, depending on the total bet placed by the players.
Jurassic Park has 5 Free Spin Bonus features, which can be triggered by the 3, 4, or 5 Scatter symbols. All of them boast dinosaur themes, namely the Tyrannosaurus Rex Bonus, the Velociraptor Bonus, the Brachiosaurus Bonus, the Triceratops Bonus, and the Dilophosaurus Bonus. Players will get 12 spins from each Bonus, along with other features. The Tyrannosaurus Rex Bonus, for instance, awards Wild Reels while the Brachiosaurus Bonus comes with a Mystery Multiplier. During the Bonus features, all 5 themed bonuses will have their respective symbols stacked with 3 each on all the reels.
What We Like
The original Jurassic Park film set a high precedent in terms of visual effects and sound, and it was only fitting that the same aesthetic also translate to this online slot game. Microgaming certainly delivered in that aspect, designing this game with rich sound and graphics that is truly reminiscent of the film. Apparently, this game was the first time that Microgaming introduced the Parallax Scrolling feature, adding more depth to the already colorful and rich imagery and graphics present in the game. The animation is so impressive you’d literally see the gentle breeze moving through the jungle foliage.
The rendering of the dinosaurs is also incredible, with Microgaming clearly displaying a lot of attention to detail. That’s not really a surprise, since the designers used the latest 3D animation technology in bringing them to life. The use of the original soundtrack from the film further added to the cinematic feel of the game, making each player experience it more fully.
Despite the standard 5-reel layout, there is a lot to look forward to in the game play of the Jurassic Park video slot. By utilizing the 243 ways-to-win system, players will find it much easier to get winning combinations and hit it big. Add to that the 5 different free spin bonus modes, and the chances of winning are multiplied. At first, selection among the 5 will be out of the control of the players. The DNA analysis of a dinosaur that has been randomly selected will determine the mode. The only time the players will be able to select is after the Free Spin bonus feature has been triggered 25 times already. This could both be good and bad for the players. Good, because it adds to the thrill of the game waiting to see which mode will be activated, and bad for those who don’t get lucky with the random selection. But hey, that’s all part of the thrill of the game, isn’t it?
With the Jurassic Park online video slot, it looks like Microgaming has a huge winner in its hands. Fans of the film will definitely flock to play this slot game, if only to relive the best parts of the movie. Non-fans, on the other hand, will also find the gameplay utterly fun and enjoyable, and will no doubt find themselves hooked to playing it.
