The ‘Jurassic World’ sequel crossed the $700 million milestone at box offices worldwide with its weekend release and online casino providers are witnessing a surge in the "Jurassic World" movie-theme slots as a result. 

The "Jurassic World" slot is an obvious popular one for fans of the "Jurassic Park" movie series.  And the franchise has a massive fan base if this weekend's box office numbers are any indication.  It had the fourth biggest opening of the year, behind "Avengers: Infinity War," "Black Panther," and "Incredibles 2".

This 5-reel, 3-row title features 243 paylines as well as plenty of free spins through the Gyrosphere Valley, Raptor Den, and Creation Lab free spin game modes (activated by 3 or more Scatter symbols). The slot also contains a non-progressive jackpot, capped at just 1,000 times your total bet. The maximum bet is just £7.20.

As if that weren't enough to get the adrenaline running, Microgaming also added a random win multiplier feature called the Indominus Rex. When triggered randomly, players wil be rewarded up to a x1000 multiplier that can be applied to their winning bet.  SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE

Those looking to play the "Jurassic World" slot can do so from practically every jurisdiction in the world provided the online casino allows it thanks to the wide embrace of bitcoin.  One can simply connect their betting accounts with a bitcoin wallet, which itself is then linked to an exchange and bank account as well as PayPal or similar platform.

Coming of Age of Movie-Themed Online Slots

ThePogg.com has monitored the innovations of movie-themed slots in just the last few years.

"In terms of aesthetics, the majority of video slots feature outstanding graphics to complement the gameplay and to convey a theme. Usually, these themes range from (but aren’t limited to) fairy tales, pop culture, vintage/classic slots, action, fantasy, celebrities, and some even draw from history. However, the last couple of years has seen a growth in popularity of a specific kind of video slot."

Some of the more popular movie-themed slots include "Planet of the Apes", "Rocky", "The Godfather", and there is even a slot based on the 1979 John Carpenter horror classic "Halloween" complete with that eerie soundtrack and a masked homicidal maniac, Michael Myers, lurking in the background.

Game providers and online casinos have benefitted from other big name titles such as the "Batman" series.

ThePogg.com writes of The Dark Knight Rises: "What makes the video slot such a popular title though is the myriad of features that players can activate when playing it. The video slot has features such as Symbol Scramble and Fight Between Batman and Bane that are activated randomly even if a spin doesn’t result in a win. Other than this, the slot also has free spin features activated by the appearance of at least 3 Bomb (Scatter) symbols. These features include Bane Rolling Reels and Super Stacked Wilds as well as Batman Extra Wild Blast and Heat Seeking Wilds."

A number of the online casinos offering the movie-themed slots also feature live dealers for games such as roulette, baccarat and blackjack.

Not Just Online

These popular film and television-themed slot machines can also be found in various Las Vegas casinos.

Here you will find more "human interest" titles like "The Hangover", "Sex in the City" and "Grease".

IGT and Bally Technologies dominate the market here.

In 2016, IGT even released a slot based on the early film era "Silent Movie" with its featuring 30 paylines and 5 reels.

Slot makers need to tread carefully, however, as such themes are subject to licensing restrictions.

Case in point, IGT was the subject of a lawsuit back in 2001 when Arnold Schwarzenegger sued to have his image removed from the company's "Terminator" slots. After the suit was settled in April of this year, the company moved to develop a game using other Terminator images that did not include the main character played by Schwarzenegger.

No such issue for Microgaming, the preeminent provider of such games online. They paid dearly for licensing the "Jurassic World" game from the title's creators.
