What is Jurassic Park Online Pokie about?
Jurassic Park Online Pokie offers 5-Reels and 243-Ways-to-Win which is pretty much a standard spec on most of Microgaming’sTM recent releases but what sets the Reels apart from the rest is that it features transparent Reels. In addition the Slot boasts a number of exciting features that really gets the blood flowing, namely the T-Rex Alert Mode and not 1 but 5 Free Spin modes – each win is followed by a video clip from the movie, with particularly large wins being accompanied by extra special scenes.
This feature is randomly activated and thunders into action, adding 35 extra Wild symbols to the Reels for the duration of 6 Spins. Now this is a winning feature that many a player will be hankering for – as much for the winning potential as for the amazing graphics associated with it.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when the player strikes three or more Scatter symbols represented by the Mosquito in Amber. The Free Spin feature has a unique, animated environment based on iconic locations in the film.

This feature offers players 12 Free Spins – during the feature all T-Rex symbols will stack 3 symbols deep on all Reels offering even more winning opportunities. While the feature is in action the T-Rex might make an appearance and turn up to 5 Reels completely Wild. This feature doesn’t support Multipliers or retriggers.
This feature offers ferocious winning potential as well as 12 Free Spins with stacked symbols – in this instance the Wild symbols split into 2 which dramatically increase the size of winning combinations.
Within the 12 Free Spins a Mystery Multiplier is awarded that ranges between 2x and 6x. The Mystery Multiplier remains in play from the first Spin which means that every Spin will have a Mystery Multiplier. Free Spins can be retriggered in this option and symbols are stacked.
