How to Play

Microgaming slots are famous for having simple controls and Jurassic World is no exception. In fact, they may be even easier than some. Upon launch, you’ll find all controls at the bottom of the screen. The Bet button will allow you to select your bet size ranging from .10 to $7.20.

The Autoplay button will allow you to auto-spin. You can choose a pre-set total of spins or to continue until stopped. Finally, you have the standard Spin button you can click at any time to start the game.

Like any other slot, you must match 3 or more symbols to win a prize. Here are the symbols in Jurassic World:

  • Owen Brady
  • Vic Hoskins
  • Claire Dearing
  • Simon Masrani
  • Velociraptor
  • Pteranodon
  • Stegosaurus
  • Ankylosaurus
  • Tyrannosaurus
  • Indominus

To access the paytable, click the menu box in the upper left hand corner of the screen and select Paytable.

Graphics and Sounds

The graphics and animation in this game is a mixed bag. The symbols are excellent as they are graphic straight from the movie. However, the symbols do not animate in any meaningful way when hit. The boarders merely light up around the winning symbols.

The sounds in this game are excellent. For starters, the background music is similar to the buildup music you hear in Jurassic World. The act of spinning can be dramatic as each time a reel stops, it sounds like a T-Rex stomping towards you.

The basic winning sound isn’t very inspiring but you’ll know when you get a big win. Big wins are accompanied by a big feature introduction sound similar to what you might hear when you first approach the T-Rex in any of the Jurassic Park films.

When you play the bonus game, you will enjoy an adventure theme similar to what you see when travelling around Jurassic World in in the Gyrosphere. It is easily some of the best sounds of the game.

Overall, this is a great video slot title. If the game was a bit more animated, it would be outstand-ing.

Jackpot

Jurassic World does feature a fixed jackpot of $102,000. The best way to achieve this jackpot is in the bonus games. The Raptor Den can potentially award more than 10 spins, so this is the best odds of hitting the jackpot.

Normally a jackpot like this we would view as medium volatility but in our testing we found it tough to get to the bonus game often. Therefore we rank this as a medium-high to high volatility bonus.

Special Features

Jurassic World features multiple special features including 3 different bonus games. When you hit 3 or more Scatter symbols on your board, you will play in one of three randomly selected free spin games. Each game awards 10 free spins.

Note, that if you happen to be a high volume player, you will have the option to select your own free spin game after you have triggered the bonus game at least 15 times in a session.

The 3 free spin games are as follows:

  • Gyrosphere Valley – This is a Multiplier Trail where the multiplier increases on each-non winning spin. The multiplier then resets on a winning spin. Note that free spins can only end on a winning spin, so there’s a chance you may get more than 10 free spins.
  • Creation Lab – This is a Rolling Reels game. Winning symbols are removed from the game to allow for new symbols. You can get multiple consecutive wins this way. It also features Cryo Wilds which means that wild symbols are frozen for 3 wins.
  • Raptor Den – This is a Wild Scatters game. All Scatter symbols are wild and are held until they award free spins. 3 or more Scatters on the board at one time awards as 5 additional spins.

In addition to the 3 bonus games, there are a couple of other features you need to look out for.

Indominus – This randomly triggered feature in the base game will win you from 3 to 5 times your bet.

Indominus Rex – If the Indominus Rex appears, your winnings will be boosted by up to 1,000x your initial stake.

Conclusion

Jurassic World combines the action of the hit movie with huge prizes. With 243 ways to win, players can look forward to regular payouts while trying to take down the $102,000 jackpot. This game is more fun than leading a team of Velociraptors on a hunt. Become the Alpha and take down dino-sized prizes with Jurassic World slots.
