The Wombat says: Jurassic Park – this blockbusting dinosaur movie is Steven Spielberg’s high-grossing film ever, would you believe? Well, let’s be honest, it was a right corker.
And guess what? Jurassic Park slot from Microgaming is based on the classic 1993 film! Remember the plot? A group of greedy geneticists created a wildlife park full of cloned dinosaurs – with disastrous results? But the real question is: does Jurassic Park slot live up to its movie namesake? Let’s check it out Wombat Fans…
Look and Feel
Design wise, Microgaming (the people behind the Football Star slot machine) have done a ruddy great job in this slot. All the film’s main characters including the scary-ass dinosaurs are in attendance and appear on your reels as the rolling symbols. It gives games like the Lights slot a run for their money on the design front.
There’s the screen’s background that looks like a virtual tour of the Park; panning in on different scenes as you spin. And other awesome design extras include the short clips from the film that pop up whenever you land 5x of the movie’s characters in a row.
3-D detailed graphics of each of the dinosaurs come to life during the bonus feature rounds, too – so if you were a fan of the film, you’ll LOVE it! Try the Tianlong slot, by the way, if you like this game. You’ll be swapping the dinos for dragons.
Jurassic Park Slot Game Play
Jurassic Park has 5 reels, 3 rows and is a ‘243 ways to win slot’. Your symbol on the reels include; a Velociraptor, a T-Rex, a Triceratops, a Brachiosaurus and a Dilophosaurus. Then there’s the human cast of the movie made up of; Dr. Allan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dr. Ian Malcolm and John Hammond.
The infamous Jurassic Park Logo is Wild symbol in the game, appears on all reels and will substitutes for any symbols, except the Scatter. These cheeky Wilds can also appear stacked on all reels – which is a nice touch.
Your Scatter is the Mosquito in Amber symbol. Land 3x or more of them and you’ll set off the Free Spins rounds.
T-Rex Alert Mode
Triggered at random, you’ll know when when it’s T-Rex time by the blood-curdling roar that resounds through the jungle… It had this wombat running for cover! Remember that guy in the movie who was hiding in the outside dunny? Classic!
This feature is quite nice, and rather unexpected too, especially if you haven’t looked at the pay-table! Here you are awarded 6 Free Spins and a whole load of extra Wild symbols too, which pleases us immensely.
Ol’ T-Rex does look like he’s got a bit of a goofy smile in this slot though- that disappears when the animation kicks in!
Free Spins Bonus
Once you’ve landed 3x Scatters, it’s time to play one of the 5, yes 5 different bonus features. Each of these sees a different dinosaur and offers combos of Multipliers, Spins and Wilds. Take a look:
Tyrannosaurus Rex Bonus This will give you 12 free spins with Wild Reels. The T-Rex symbol appears stacked during this round, plus a T-Rex may also decide to change your reels completely wild. Roar!
Velociraptor Bonus It’s 12 Free Spins for you with Multipliers and Split Wilds if you pick this bonus. A Velociraptor will leap onto the reels turning symbols Wild and adding a 4x, 5x or 6x multiplier to them. They will also double up, giving you new combos.
Triceratops Bonus Pick up 12 Free Spins and some Running Wilds here. The Wild stack increases with each spin, while Mr Triceratops lands stacked, too. No-win spins will give you a stack of sticky wilds and a re-spin, too. Ahhh we do like those friendly Triceratops!
Brachiosaurus Bonus This bonus features 12 Free Spins and a mystery multiplier. The hungry herbivore munches on the reels’ tree-tops to give you multipliers from 2x – 6x. The Brachiosaur symbol appears stacked on the reels, too.
Dilophosaurus Bonus If you get this bonus, Winning Wilds and 12 Free Spins will be yours. The dopey Dilophosaurus turns random symbols into sticky wilds to give you more wins.
