Dinosaur Themed Slots by Software Providers

Dinosaurs have always been fascinating entities. The mystery surrounding their disappearance and the painstaking re-creation of the Jurassic period has added to the interest. Jurassic Park and its sequel movies allowed people world over to get a close up look at dinosaurs and since then they have become a hot topic. Every major software provider has a slot game based on the dinosaur theme.

The Cryptologic dinosaur themed online slot, Dino Delight, takes a comic view of the theme in the manner of The Flintstones. In fact the caveman and the cave girl somewhat resemble Fred and Wilma Flintstone. The cave girl is the wild symbol and is desperately in love with her mate as depicted in the animations. The baby dinosaur is the scatter symbol and there are two other cutely crafted dinosaurs. The high value card symbols have been fashioned from stone. Dino Delight has a very interesting side bet. The players wager an extra amount and select from head or tail. While the reels spin a dinosaur in the background tosses a coin. If the player has guessed right the side bet amount is doubled.

The software provider Microgaming shows a diametrically opposite view in the slot game Dino Might. The introductory clip takes players back to a savage world that has been lost in time. The symbols on the reels are various dinosaurs and exotic plants from that era. There are two bonus games that add interest to the play. The Reel Bonus is activated when three or more "Triggersaurus" symbols appear in a payline. This docile looking dinosaur suddenly becomes ferocious and lets out a roar. Players choose one of the symbols to win bonus credits. The Match Bonus is triggered by the amber fossil symbol. Players can win 20,000 coins in this game and more if they find the mighty multiplier.

One of the most popular dinosaur themed slot games is T-Rex from the software provider Realtime Gaming. As in the other slot games of this genre the Jurassic atmosphere is created through use of appropriate symbols and graphics, though it is more somber. However, this slot game shows why T-Rex is the king of the dinosaurs. The T-Rex is the wild symbol and doubles payouts. It appears only on Reel 3 in the main game, but when it is in a winning combination it announces its majesty by breaking the boundaries of the symbol and letting out a ferocious roar. It is even more fearsome in the free spins because it will eat all the other dinosaurs on the reels and replace them with the wild T-Rex symbols before payouts are awarded.

Jurassic Slots from the software provider Vegas Technology follows the script of the Jurassic movies. The introductory clip shows a team landing on a remote island and what follows is an epic battle between man and beast. The beasts are represented by the dinosaurs and the humans by the girl with the dart gun, the land rover and the helicopter. And there is the smoking volcano that will still be there when the battle is over. There is plenty of audio visual animation suitable to the theme. The bonus symbol is the eggs and the scatter symbol is the jungle and these offer additional payouts.
