The goal of playing Jurassic Island online slot is to spin the reels and land matching symbols on the paylines. The slot also boasts special features, including Expanding Wild Symbols, Free Games and Bonus Game. This online casino game is a must for fans of adventure-themed slots!

How to Play:

When the game loads for the first time a screen will appear detailing some of the slot’s special features. Press Continue to go to the main screen. Check Don’t Show Next Time if you would like to skip this screen the next time you load the game.

  • Choose the Line Bet by using the +/- buttons on the bottom of the screen.
  • Click Spin when you have selected your bet.
  • Select Auto Play if you would like to set a number of spins to be played through automatically. You can exit from Auto Play by clicking the Stop Auto Play button (replaces Spin).
  • Click Turbo Mode if you would like to speed up the animations when you spin the reels.

Please note:

  • The slot is played with 25 fixed paylines. Therefore, the Total Bet is calculated as Line Bet x 25.
  • Winning combinations of symbols will be highlighted on the reels after a spin. You can view the payouts for all winning combinations by clicking the Info button. All payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet.

Info Pages:

Click on Info to launch a screen showing the slot’s reference pages, which include all payouts for the main game and information on special features. You can use the arrows on the bottom right to navigate through the pages. Click on the X button to exit and go back to the reels. Descriptions of the Info Pages are provided below:

Paytable (Low Wins) – shows the payouts for the Low Paying Symbols.

Paytable (High Wins) – shows the payouts for the High Paying Symbols.

Special Symbols – explains the behaviour of Scatter and Wild Symbols.

Free Games – provides a description of the three Free Games Bonus Features.

Hot Shot Hunter Bonus – explains the rules and awards for the Hot Shot Hunter Bonus.

Paylines – displays the positions of all 25 paylines as they appear on the reels.

Paylines:

Jurassic Island slot is played using 25 fixed paylines. These are the directions that matching symbols must follow across the reels to record Line Wins.

Please be aware that the Line Bet and Total Bet are not the same. The Line Bet is the stake made on each of the paylines. The Total Bet is the stake made on all paylines added together, i.e. 25 x Line Bet.

About Payouts:

A complete list of payouts for the main game is found on the Paytable Info Pages. The figures shown for each winning combination are multiplied by the Line Bet.

A Line Win consists of a group of matching symbols working left to right in a chain on one of the paylines.

If more than one winning combination occurs on a single payline, you will be paid for the highest value combination only. Wins on different paylines are added up and paid out as a total win.

Wild Symbols:

Wild Symbols can fall on Reels 2, 3 and 4 only. They do not have a separate payout value. Instead, they can substitute for all other symbols (except Scatter) to make the highest paying combination on a payline.

In addition, the Wild Symbols will expand to cover the entire reel when a winning combination is possible. This can happen simultaneously over all three reels that Wild Symbols appear on.

Scatter Symbols:

Scatter Symbols can fall on any of the five reels. They do not have a payout value. However, you will be awarded Free Games or the Hot Shot Hunter Bonus if three or more land on any position on the reels.

Scatter Symbols do not need to fall on paylines or be in any order to be active in the game.

Free Games/Hot Shot Hunter Bonus:

When three or more Scatter Symbols appear on the reels after a spin, you will be taken to the Feature Picking Round to choose one of four bonus features:

  • Multiplier Free Games.
  • Carnivore Free Games.
  • Raptor Free Games.
  • Hot Shot Hunter Bonus.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
