Jurassic Park Video Slot review
Jurassic Park is a Microgaming-powered slot game with 5 reels and 243 paylines. You can play from as little as 30p a spin to as much as £30 a spin. This branded slot is based on the Steven Spielberg 1993 film where a group of genetic scientists created a wildlife park full of cloned dinosaurs. To date, it’s the high grossing film directed by Spielberg!
The slot version incorporates footage from the film with amazing and detailed graphics which are brought to life in the bonus features. This is known as Parallax Scrolling effects – anyway, the unique and detailed environments of the film locations and brought to life in the free spins features.
In the base game there is a T-Rex Alert Mode feature which is activated at random. It plays for 6 spins with T-Rex appearing behind the reels on the 3rd spin. In total, you can get up to 35 wilds added to the reels during the 6 spins which can lead to huge wins. The Jurassic Park logo symbol is all important as it shows up stacked on all the reels.
There is a Free Spins feature which can be activated when you get 3 or more Dinosaur Egg symbols. You will notice there are 5 individual free spins features with their own characteristics. You can benefit from wild reels, split wilds, wild multipliers, running wilds, mystery multipliers and winning wilds. Firstly you will play with the Tyrannosaurus Rex and will access the others when you’ve triggered the free spins feature more than 25 times – then you can choose. However, you will get 12 free spins for any one you choose.
The Tyrannosaurus Rex Free Spins feature gives you wild reels. The T-Rex symbol is triple stacked on all reels when appearing. Now, look out for the T-Rex as you will be guaranteed a winning spin with reels turning wild! The Velociraptor Free Spins feature benefits from split wilds or wild multipliers. You can get 6 of a kind wins from split wilds and up to a 6x multiplier with wild multipliers!
I really like the Brachiosaurus Free Spins feature where there is a Mystery Multiplier. A multiplier ranging from 2x to 6x will apply to a random number of free spins with the 6x multiplier being available for 4 free spins. Unlike the other features, you can get more free spins if you’re lucky!
Fourthly there is the Triceratops Free Spins feature – here you can get running wilds, random stack nudges and re-spins. Running wilds appear on all wilds with a wild added to each stack per free spin. Partial stacks are good as Triceratops stampede occurs rewarding you will fully wild reels – these remain with the other reels re-spinning for big wins!
Lastly there is the Dilophosaurus Free Spins feature which gives you winning wilds – the Dilophosaurus appears to spit at a symbol and changing it into a wild. A winning spin with a winning wild will remain throughout the whole feature for big wins.
You may be thinking that lots of bonus features can mean it’s a low variance/entertainment-orientated slot – well, I find it to be medium variance as well as highly entertaining. So a big thumbs up from me! You can win more than 6,000 times your stake in the T-Rex Alert Mode feature, base game and all free spins features. I quite like the Brachiosaurus Free Spins feature as I’ve triggered more free spins and got a 6x multiplier for 8 free spins. However, nothing beats the T-Rex free spins feature as wild reels can really give you massive wins! Jurassic Park is one of my favourite Microgaming slots but you should definitely try Immortal Romance which is still my favourite.
