The new installment of the rebooted Jurassic franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is set to hit screens this summer and, needless to say, there is a lot of hype around the movie. To get in the mood for the next stage of the saga directed by J.A Bayona, there are two great games that fans can play. One is an intense online slot that gives players the chance to win money, while the other is a Pokémon Go-style collecting game. Here, we compare the two offerings so you can decide which is best for you.
Jurassic World Online Slot
Microgaming followed up their award-winning Jurassic Park online slot game with Jurassic World, which is another popular offering from the online casino giants. A lot of successful online casinos in Canada have struck deals with the developers as a way to pull in players. For instance, according to this Spin Palace review, there are over 600 Microgaming titles on offer at the Canadian site. The Jurassic World slot features the main characters from the 2015 film, along with some of the most popular dinosaurs and the Jurassic Park logo.
Some of the best features of the game are the Wild Scatters and Free Spins, which can result in tantalising returns. If the Indominus Rex appears, the player’s win could be multiplied up to 1,000 times. For seasoned slots players, this one will be easy to get the hang of. But newcomers may wish to play it without risking any of their own money. To do this, look for free spins on slots, which are frequently awarded to new customers at online casinos. This way, you can enjoy the game and learn how it works for free. There’s also a chance you could win some money.
Jurassic World Alive
Augmented reality could well be the next big thing, and the success of Pokémon Go in 2016 has led developers to realise the potential of the technology. By the end of 2017, the game from Niantic had generated $268 million and had been downloaded 100 million times on the Google Play Store alone. Needless to say, others are now trying to replicate this innovative format.
One such game is Jurassic World Alive, which is being developed by Ludia in partnership with Universal. The game has already been rolled out in Canada and Australia, with a worldwide release set to coincide with the build-up to the new film. Similar to Pokémon Go, players will have to explore their surroundings in search of over 100 different dinosaurs. There is also the possibility to create dinosaurs using hybrid DNA. The social element comes when players meet up and pit their dinosaurs against each other in battle.
These exciting games should help Jurassic World fans get psyched up for Fallen Kingdom. The good news is that it doesn’t stop there. There is also Jurassic World Evolution from Frontier Developments set for release on PlayStation, Xbox, and Microsoft Windows on the same day as the new movie hits screens.
