Most casinos lease games from developers and this means that they're always paying out rental fees. Bgo.com are cleverly looking at getting round this issue by starting to develop their own suite of games. They already run their own bingo software and have now taken their first step into the world of online slots.
Jurassic Island is a dinosaur themed five reel slot with 25 pay lines. It's fairly basic and features a hunter, dinosaur, a large gorilla and bone inspired icons. A kind of Jurassic Park meets King Kong but perhaps not quite the same so as to get round any copyright laws. The game is accompanied by some haunting tribal music that's not too irritating.
You can play between 1 and 25 lines and cost per line ranges from 1p to £2 - this means you could spend up to £50 on a single spin. Game play is smooth although it does feel that the reels don't spin too much. Outside of the spin area you get occasional movement from characters surrounding the game.
The game has two features - Wilds and Scatters. The wilds when they arrive will fill the entire reel which can result in a bigger prize. The scatter feature results in the choice of four bonus games where for the most part you can pick up free spins. In another game - Hot Shot Hunter - you get to test your shooting skills to pick up extra wins.
This is a great first effort from Bgo.com and we actually enjoyed giving Jurassic Island a spin. There's nothing too fancy or gimmicky so you simply end up with a fun slot to play. Hopefully this will be the first of many new games from the company - if so it will make their Bgo Vegas and Casino sections even more worthwhile visiting.
