We’re not saying that the Jurassic Park slot game is based on a movie because, well, obviously.
What we are saying is that the graphics are worthy of any film that’s due to come out now, never mind 1993.
Yes it was that long ago this beauty graced our screen, and not so long ago that the video slot came and swept us away back to the paradise island full of… not so cute little / big critters.
This is a fancy way for Microgaming to say, that as you spin the five reels, the lush jungle background moves, making you feel like your travelling through the film itself.
This is particularly effective as each dinosaur on the reels comes alive on each win, and a five of a kind on a character symbol gives you actual clips from the blockbuster movie itself.
It may not appeal to traditionalist, but you can’t deny that Jurassic Park video slot is stunning.
This background is put to even better use when you get the T-rex alert, and the greatest of the dinosaurs shows up in the background, bringing a chill to your spine.
Mostly because you’re hoping that this time, you’ll get all of the potential 35 extra wilds on the reels during this bonus game, even if you know from experience that what you are really going to get is a couple of stacked wilds.
Sometimes it pays off, but mostly, expect about 10x to 30x your bet on a good round.
It pays to be patient and wait for the free spins hiding in this prehistoric dino infested jungle
However, this is more than any mobile device can take. So Jurassic Park online slot is that only. If you’re afraid your computer won’t be able to hack it, don’t worry, there are options to turn off the background animations.
By now, you’re probably thinking; this is all very pretty and all, but where exactly are the big wins?
That my friend would be in the 5 free spin features. We saved the best for last. Read on.
There is one major drawback to this game, and one of the reasons why it only gets three stars.
For one, there are long periods in the game where you’ll be hard pressed to stay excited, T-rex or no T-rex.
That’s because what you are really waiting for, as with most Microgaming games, is the free spins.
And though you have five features to choose, you’ll need to enter the free spins round 25 times before you get your choice of which of the five features you prefer.
It means that you have to be in for the long haul with this Jurassic Park slot machine. But once you unlock them all, you have some brilliant choices with more wild options than you’ll know what to do with.
That’s more what we would like to call, a personal choice. And by the time you get to choose, you’ll be well versed in all the options and have no doubt found your favourite.
All start with 12 free spins and in our opinion, from best to least best:
Are there better Microgaming games out there? Probably. Isis certainly has bigger wins and few can beat the multi-million jackpot in Mega Moolah. And though it has a good betting range, it’s not exactly a high limit slot.
But can anyone else do it with the same style, adventure and beauty as the Jurassic Park online slot? Whilst bringing you true, jump out of your skin moments?
Can any other game truly make you feel like you’re lost in another world?
We can’t answer you at the moment as we’re running for our lives in a tropical jungle, trying to survive in a harsh, but of so rewarding, island. We’ll let you know when we get out, if we get out.
