UPDATE: The release date has now been confirmed for August 2014. Sorry about that!
Microgaming are getting ready to launch their big bad razor sharp slot online, so here's the video to wet the appetite. Billy Goat not included.
If you got that reference then you’ve past the test. Well done Jurassic Park fan, you are allowed to enter into our world and find out all about the latest of the big blockbuster slots by Microgaming .
It’s no Game of Thrones slot, but it will do as a July 2014 release from the big casino software provider that just keeps on giving. Will the Jurassic Park mobile slot be available at the same time? That, we can’t confirm, but there’s always hope.
So far all we’ve seen for all the promotional material and all the official releases is ‘online slot’ but we shall keep that hopeful optimism that would make us call a Dilophosaurus a ‘nice boy’ before it viciously acid blinds us. Because we are suckers like that.
Now for the fun bit. Let’s dissect this beautiful prehistoric beauty and try and decipher it’s precious mosquito based slot game DNA. Yes we will keep putting movie references in our sentences and you can bite our arm off if you don’t like it.
It’s 243 ways to win, with 5×3 reels . Why of course. What else? So was Terminator II, so was Playboy, so was Hitman. If it ain’t broke… Up the jackpot to 95,000 in cash, put some different movie clips in the game and make it sound, play and look awesome.
Considering that the original film won numerous awards, including Academy Awards, for best visual and sound effects, we can expect nothing less from this game. Have you seen those dinosaurs? You can’t get much closer to the movie than that.
Talking of which, Microgaming have said that Jurassic Park slot game will be the first to host it’s Parallax Scrolling feature. What is this? Well, we deciphered the babble speech and basically… see how in the background of the video you get lush jungle? Apparently, as you spin, the jungle will change, making it appear as if you are moving through the dense forest bush. So when that T-Rex comes out of nowhere it appears twice as realistic.
Now that’s ‘immersive’ game play.
Wilds! Stacked wilds everywhere! Well, it is a wild jungle, so what do you expect? The T-Rex alert feature where he pops out of nowhere and gives up to 35 extra wilds for a total of 6 spins (which you pay for) seems more gimmicky than for any real big wins, but there is certainly potential here. It does say ‘up to’ which can mean ‘not really’.
Either way, looks like the game has so many wilds of different kinds, the Microgaming teams brainstorming session probably went something like this:
“Stick those wilds in Jurassic Park! It fits with the theme! Dinosaurs! Wild Dinosaurs! Grrr… Wildness wilds!”
They probably used more exclamation marks in the memo.
Bigger is better here as you get not one, not two but five dinosaur-themed Free Spin features. But does that mean it’s going to be awesome a la Thunderstruck II? Well… no but… kinda? Basically, you’ll get a random free spin feature assigned to you, until you’ve hit 25 free spins features and then you can pick your favourite.
Bright side, you get to test them all thoroughly before you get given the keys to the free spin slot Jeep. Downside, you may get stuck with some of the more mundane free spin features as Microgaming stops you from getting the ones with the big multipliers.
Talking of which, we already know which of the free spins feature is going to be our favourite. It’s got to be the Velociraptor right? Those sharp toothed hunters are waaaaaaaaay scarier than the T-Rex. Plus they come with up to 6x multiplier on wilds AND split wilds which allows you to get 6 of a kind wins.
Here’s where you’ll get the real frightening jumps in the game as you chase the big bucks.
Yes. You have to try this game. Even if it ends up being far too chaotic and with far too many features, Jurassic Park slot game is BIG. As in, all you can eat, every possible slot feature, water rippling big. If nothing else, once you’ve played it, you can go and play any other mobile slot and you’ll be able to recognise the feature because you’ve seen it here.
Our favourite Microgaming Casino at the moment is Guts. Because they put all the new games up as soon as they launch and they have a very generous 3 deposit bonuses and 100 free spins (which you get with no wagering requirements). Plus 6 other softwares including NetEnt and IGT.
What? We like variety.
And dinosaurs. Because nothing is cooler than dinosaurs.Start Playing at Guts »
