Jurassic Island 2 Slot Review
Jurassic Island 2 is a dinosaur-themed online slot game developed by the team at Playtech. Those who played the original Jurassic Island will notice very few similarities between the two games outside of their theme. Several of the bonus features have been stripped away, though, a new maths model sees a serious increase in the number of ways to win. The original title was not a runaway success for the company, so making changes for the sequel seems like a smart move. Does it manage to improve upon it though? Let’s take a more detailed look in this Jurassic Island 2 slot review.
Jurassic Island 2 Technical Features
The set-up of the Jurassic Island 2 slot is fairly standard, with the game taking place across a 5x4 grid. What is notable, however, is that the slot boasts an impressive 1,024 different ways to win. Other than this, the base game is what you’d expect, with very few bells and whistles being thrown in to mix things up.
One thing that is very notable here, though, is the betting range. Players can spin the reels for a minimum of €0.10 or a maximum of €500. This is a high amount that is definitely going to attract the attention of some players, especially when combined with a maximum win of 23,290x your stake. The RTP of the game is an average 95.7%
Jurassic Island 2 Bonus Features
Wild Trial Feature
Sadly, Jurassic Island 2 does not come packed with too many bonus features, with the Wild Trial feature being the only one. This feature is triggered whenever players manage to land a scatter symbol on rows 3 or 4 or reel 5.
During the feature, a wild is locked onto reel four and players are given a free spin. If the free spin doesn’t return a win, a wild is then added and locked onto reel three, if this still doesn’t return a win, then another wild is locked onto reel 2, which will guarantee a win. Once a win has been secured, the feature ends.
Any wilds that appear during the round will appear as a multiplier of either 3x, 4x, or 5x, which can add a nice little boost to your win.
Jurassic Island 2 Theme and Design
The clue for the theme of this title should be in the name. Jurassic Island 2 takes place in the heart of an island, with a T-Rex wandering around behind the reels as the game plays. This was one area of the game that we weren’t too fond of. As the action is taking place, the camera continues to pan around, creating quite a nauseating effect that can almost remove any of the pleasure from the gameplay. Outside of this, the reels themselves are very basic looking and the animations don’t really capture the imagination all that much.
Conclusion and Verdict
Jurassic Island 2 is a fairly unspectacular outing from Playtech. The lack of too many bonus features is going to turn some people away, though, the fact that the bonus round offers a guaranteed win is definitely a selling point. The 23,290x definitely gives this one a boost but an average design and fairly uninspired gameplay will mean that this slot isn’t going to be for everybody.
