A mysterious island inhabited by prehistoric creatures will definitely remind you of the famous Jurassic Park movie, but actually you are about to walk among dinosaurs accompanied with a Victorian hunter.
The 2016 release offers plenty of fun and rewarding features, involving Raptor expanding Wilds, three different Free Games options with lots of free spins and multipliers, and a great Hot Shot Hunter Bonus game, for a starting price of $0.25.
When it comes to visuals, you will certainly not be amazed by it, but you will be pleasantly surprised with the engaging soundtrack.
What We Love
We were pleasantly surprised with the Raptor expanding Wild, since it appeared very often during the base game, rewarding us with decent payouts.
Every time there was the slightest possibility of forming a winning combination, the Raptor would expand to a full-reel length. More than once we managed to land two and even three Raptor Wilds on adjacent reels, resulting in mega wins.
Being true action junkies, we love when our slots are filled with action, which is definitely the case with the 2016 release. There aren’t many slots out there that offer four different Bonus games, up to 80 freebies and an amazing 180x multiplier.
Once you land at least three Hunter Scatters, which can sometimes be quite difficult to accomplish, you will get to choose between three modes of Free Games and a cool Hot Shot Hunter Bonus.
The Free Games offer up to 40 freebies, multipliers, high-value symbols and expanding Wilds, which will definitely result in amazing payouts, and because of the fact that you can retrigger all of them, you can win up to 80 free spins.
The Hot Shot Hunter Bonus is for all spinners who want to test their shooting skills by hunting down three kinds of dinosaurs.
The result will depend on your reflexes and your sharp eye, and you can win an amazing 180x multiplier for shooting down white dinosaurs, a 120x multiplier for the brown ones, while pterodactyls can award you with a 50x multiplier. You can really strike it rich in this Bonus game if you are good with a rifle.
What We Do Not Like
Sometimes we were tempted to try and shoot down that crazy-looking Hunter, because he simply refused to land on the reels. We didn’t like the fact that it is pretty hard to land even three Scatters, so you can imagine how often we saw four or even five of them on the reels.
The biggest frustration was to land two Scatters on the first two reels, than helplessly look how the other three stop without a single Scatter on them. Unfortunately, that happened more than once while we tested the game. Anyway, we would advise all spinners to arm themselves with patience, because the Free Games are definitely worth the trouble.
At a first glance, the slot will not seem promising, since the visuals are not as good as they should be. But we would advise you not to judge a book by its covers, since Jurassic Island is definitely worth playing, because of the cool additional features it offers.
You will love the fact that the base game itself offers plenty of possibilities for hefty payouts, thanks to the Raptor expanding Wild, and you will even love the Free Games, even though you will not be given the chance to play them that often.
Plenty of free spins and multipliers are definitely worth the wait, so if you have the time and money to spare, you should take the 2016 release for a spin.
