Jurassic Island is the first online slot produced in-house at bgo Vegas, but can it live up to its big budget namesake?

Gameplay

The dino-hunter theme exudes theme park-esque excitement. The reels are set into a rugged island landscape, and are permanently watched by a hawkish hunter and ominous raptor. The win symbols incorporate playing card symbols made of bones, ancient beasts and a triceratops skull, as well as the hunter and his lizard-like prey. The well-presented visuals are accompanied by dramatic Central American music that brings in drumbeats, chants and even panpipes to produce a surprisingly immersive experience.

Features

Behind the slick exterior is some equally impressive functionality. The basic setup is a five-reel, 25-payline video slot that’s easy to customise. After sampling the game with free plays, users can stake between £0.25 and £50, and win up to £46,860 on a single spin. Auto spins can be set up for five to 500 spins, and pre-programmed to stop at certain win values or special features, while graphics and sound can be turned up and down, and spins can be sped up to hurry through to your next win.

A good video slot isn’t just about functionality though. It’s also about fun gameplay and high prize potential. Fortunately Jurassic Island has something to offer here too.

The Expandable Wild, represented by the raptor, appears on reels two to four. It substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter, and automatically expands to cover the whole reel whenever doing so results in a win.

The Scatter, represented by the Victorian-style hunter, triggers the bonus feature when three or more arrive in a single spin. Unlike most bonuses, however, the hunter lets you choose your weapon in the form of four different games. These are:

  • Multi Spins: Awards 10 - 30 free spins, depending on how many Scatters started the feature, along with a three times win multiplier
  • Carnivore Spins: Awards 10 – 30 spins again, but instead of the multiplier only the high win symbols and bonus symbols are left on the reels during free spins
  • Raptor Spins: Awards 16 – 40 spins with stacked wilds
  • Hot Shot Hunter: A separate mini game that lets you take on the role of the hunter, and awards cash for every dinosaur you bag

Overall, the engaging aesthetic, functional console and versatile bonus features make this a stellar first offering from bgo.
