Jurassic World: Raptor Riches Review
Following the success of Jurassic World and Jurassic Park Remastered, Microgaming decided to make this series into a trilogy. Developed by Microgaming's Fortune Factory Studios, Jurassic World: Raptor Riches follows on from the 2015 Jurassic World film and instead focuses on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
At this point in the story, the park is fully gone and humans have to face the looming threat of these genetically enhanced dinosaurs. It's up to you to try and contain these dinosaurs along with all your favourite characters from the series. If you manage to keep these dinosaurs at bay, you may even be rewarded handsomely for it.
Compared to the other two slots in the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World: Raptor Riches is definitely of a higher quality. As the slot opens up, the background is clearer and vibrant to showcase the beauty of the famous park on Isla Nublar. There are even animations throughout the slot making you feel more like you are part of this world rather than playing something lifeless.
As for the symbols on the reels, you can expect to see all the fan-favourites from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Owen Grady (played by Chris Pratt), Claire Dearing (played by Bryce Dallas Howard), Dr Henry Wu (played by BD Wong) and Dr Iam Malcom (played by Jeff Goldblum) are the stars of the reels with the dinosaurs being the lower-paid symbols. The avatars of the actors are more than a copy-paste job with specially designed backgrounds and enhanced pictures to make them fit into the aesthetic of the slot.
Overall, the design of this slot is leaps and bounds above the other slots as it feels more like a modern slot. The animation of the wild stacks is terrifying and perfectly done to create a more intense atmosphere.
The music of this slot is a generic action track with drums and an intense beat to build up tension. Thankfully, it's not too intense but it would've been nice to have one of the scores from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Michael Giacchino.
You can expect straightforward gameplay with this slot as there are only 5-reels with 20 paylines. Sure, there are various amount of features but they are all self-explanatory making this slot perfect to just pick up and play.
In terms of buttons, you can find them all at the bottom of the screen with the spin button centred in the middle. To either side of the spin button, you'll find the autospin and bet level buttons. If you need additional settings such as sound or the paytable, then you'll find them on this bottom bar as well.
Jurassic World: Raptor Riches is a high volatility slot with a decent RPT of 96.02% but it should be noted that this is just over the average standard. In terms of the volatility level, you can expect high payouts but less frequently - so make sure that you have the bankroll to sustain your gameplay.
The maximum win is a little disappointing with a maximum win of 2,500x your stake which comes directly from the Apex jackpot. There are multipliers and other features to help you, but you'll never gain over 2,500x your stake. However, if you are playing with the maximum bet of 100.00, you could end up with some satisfying wins. This slot is definitely intended for players who prefer to bet big to gain high volatility returns.
This TV/Movie slot is a strange one as it improves on every criticism from the earlier two slots, but has a decreased win potential. Of course, the visuals in Jurassic World: Raptor Riches are not mind-blowing, but they are entertaining and definitely deliver what they are trying to do. The same comes with the gameplay as there isn't anything innovative, but it's thrilling enough for a good time.
Sadly, the low maximum win of 2,500x is not great and the only real way you can gain that much is through the jackpot or max multipliers which isn't a common occurrence. If you love the Jurassic Park franchise and want to see the next instalment, then we definitely recommend a spin on Jurassic World: Raptor Riches - just be aware of the volatility level and the maximum win.
