Jurassic World Review
In 2015, Jurassic World was released and the world went bonkers for the film. It was the fourth in the Jurassic Park series and there was a huge 14-year difference between Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World. The film stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard with the film being set 22 years after the events of the first film.
With the film being so successful and even the second-highest-grossing film of 2015 (second to Star Wars: The Force Awakens), it was an obviously choice to develop a slot based on the film. Developed by Microgaming, Jurassic World plays on 5-reels with 243 ways to win.
The background of the reels is a still from the film with the park at the top. All the characters from the film are featured as symbols on the reels with the main characters and creatures acting as the biggest payouts.
Disappointingly, there is little music playing throughout the spin as only a few sounds. It's not the end of the world but feels a little cheap. They could've easily put in the infamous Jurassic Park theme by John Williams or something epic to build up the tension.
The gameplay to this slot is quite minimal as all you do is spin the reels. It's simple and the only different effect is a 3D scanner movement on the reels to give it a futuristic feeling. Honestly, other than that - there's nothing too exciting about the slot.
Most of the play menus are at the bottom with the bet level, spin and autospin here. To the left of the reels, there is a drop-down menu for the paytable and other information.
The biggest base game win comes from the Indominus Rex which can boost your bet up to 1,000x your bet. Of course, you could potentially win up to 14,000x your stake if you fill the reels with wilds and gain the multiplier of x7 during the Gyrosphere Valley free spins feature.
Jurassic World has an RTP of 95.45% with a medium volatility level which is a decent level. With the medium volatility level, you can expect a mixture of low frequent payments and less frequent higher payouts.
The Jurassic Park series is beloved by all film fans, but sadly this won't be the case with this slot. The design is a little outdated and the gameplay is a bit too basic for our likings.
Thankfully, the win potential is decent and holds the slot together. If you love TV/Movie slots, then you should check out Jurassic World. We'd recommend giving Jurassic World a spin as the win potential is decent enough to hopefully give you some solid wins.
