Play with Dinosaurs in Jurassic Island Slot
Jurassic Island’s name is probably inspired by the popular Jurassic Park movies, the first one being released in the 90s.
The idea seems to be the same one, even if this isn’t a branded game, with dinosaurs brought back to life on a secluded island.
Human hunters are present there, so one can presume that hunting dinosaurs is a sport that can be undertaken in it, and one of the main symbols does have one of these guys, armed with a rifle.
The slot offers its 25 lines, a pretty standard layout these days, there are 5 reels as expected, and inside the game you are offered prizes of up to 1,000x. As for the features, an expanding wild, free types of free spins, a scatter and a bonus game are available.
What We Love
I’ve really enjoyed the game’s design, one of the strong points it has in this case. It all starts with the feature symbols, which will show you a Raptor dinosaur and a Hunter, the wild and the scatter, respectively. Three other land dinosaurs are used, along with a pterodactyl and the skull of a Triceratops, for the high paying symbols.
The low paying icons have poker numbers/letters made out of bones. As for the background, it shows the island, with flying pterodactyls in the sky and with a Raptor dinosaur on the right, while the Hunter is on the left.
It’s that same Raptor that you will see when the wild lands on the reels. It’s only going to be used on the reels from the middle, from the 2nd to the 4th columns. As an expanding wild, it can be used to help form any combination, as long as it is on the reel where there is a need for it. It will expand only when it is required to do that.
The Hunter, as a scatter, needs to appear a minimum of three times to get the feature to you. The more scatters trigger it, the better the outcome inside. You choose a bonus game or one of the three types of free spins.
The bonus game allows you to hunt the dinosaurs yourself, and to get prizes of up to 180x the round’s wager (4,500 coins). The three types of three spins will allow you to get free spins with 3x multipliers, with only high win symbols present, or with stacked expanding wilds.
Anywhere between 10 and 40 free spins are given, depending on the version you chose and on triggering symbols.
What We Do Not Like
It would’ve been great if there were bigger top prizes, something to make the player really want to play the slot from Playtech, other than the theme.
I’ve enjoyed the slot’s features and the graphics, not so much the biggest jackpot possible inside.
