Gaming Gets Jurassic
Spinosaurus is a new online slot from Booming Games which takes you back to the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. The natural landscape of the world might have been untouched by the presence of humans in those days, but it was still a fairly dangerous place to be, and any creature that wasn’t strong enough, fast enough or clever enough to evade predators wouldn’t last long by any stretch of the imagination. Thankfully, online slots players aren’t at risk from extinction, so you should be good to play this game for as long as you want.
Format and Setting
This game has five reels and three rows, and the natural landscape just mentioned serves as its backdrop. Four different dinosaur footprints in what appears to be slabs of grey stone serve as the minor symbols, and the four dinosaurs that made those footprints (including the ever-popular Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex) serve as the major symbols. The egg of a Pterodactyl serves as a wild symbol, and an erupting volcano serves as a scatter.
The artwork here is reminiscent of a colourful textbook on dinosaurs, so whilst it has something of a comic-book style, the creatures portrayed look as fiercely realistic as you could want them to. An orchestral soundtrack adds a superbly epic tone to the adventure, and the incidental audio effects strike a nice balance between highlighting wins and not breaking the overall mood.
Pterodactyl Wild Feature
We have already said that a Pterodactyl egg symbol serves as a wild, but this game also has a separate Pterodactyl Wild feature which can be randomly triggered at any time. When this happens, a Pterodactyl will fly across the screen, and it will drop anything from 0 to 15 wild symbols onto the reels as it does so. This means that triggering the feature doesn’t guarantee that any wild will be awarded, which adds an extra element of surprise to the mix, and increases the satisfaction experienced when one or more wild eggs are dropped.
Symbol Upgrade Feature
Another feature which is triggered randomly, and which doesn’t always lead to success, is the Symbol Upgrade. When this is triggered, anything from 0 to 10 of the minor symbols (that is, the footprints) on the reels will be upgraded to their corresponding major symbols (the dinosaurs that made them).
Free Spins Feature
The main feature in this game is the Free Spins feature, which is triggered by getting three scatter symbols on the reels. Each scatter symbol will show a number, and the total of the numbers shown on the scatters will determine how many free spins you will receive. The minimum number of free spins you can get is 8, and the maximum is 12.
Journey to the Land of the Dinosaurs
Spinosaurus is really quite a simple game, which makes it just as suitable for rookie slot players as for those who have been playing for some time. The graphics and audio are impressive, and playing on tablet or mobile devices doesn’t diminish the gaming experience one bit. Just as important, this game is being offered via Microgaming, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a venue that hosts it. Head over to your preferred casino to take it for a spin, and good luck in landing a monster win!
