Back in 1993, Jurassic Park opened our eyes to the wonder and the sheer power of dinosaurs. It is one of Steven Spielberg’s greatest ever movies, if not the greatest, and to this day it remains hugely popular among the public. It was one of those films that are both fascinating and spooky; a movie that showed that a concept can pull in audiences as much as a couple of mega superstars can.
The forest has been a fascination of man for ages. Even today, Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is being taught in schools, movies are being made based on his novel, and Mowgli remains one the most loved fictional character. The fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World, was released in 2015 and raked in over $1 billion. Jurassic World 2 is set to be released in 2018 and could be an even bigger hit at the box office.
Jurassic Park has been a huge influence on video games and online gaming. The popularity of the films has seen children and adults play video games with dinosaur themes. Online casinos now offer a range of slots based on forests and dinosaurs that are fun to play and are educational as well. It is not always possible for us, especially those who in live metropolitan cities, to enjoy the wildlife or go on safaris, which is why such online slots based on animals and jungles are so popular nowadays.

Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Dinosaur Up are two of the many dinosaur-based online slot games. While the former takes you back 245 million years to a Stone Age rainforest with some fierce dinosaurs, the latter is based on the concept of an explorer on a jungle dinosaur hunt.
While Zuma is based in the Aztec forest, Heart of the Jungle lets the player explore the forest with photorealistic graphics and an atmospheric soundtrack. Amazon Wild is quite educational in the sense that it tells tales of ancient civilisations and cities that are lost. As for Jungle Madness, it is exactly what the name refers to - there are monkeys, snakes, exotic birds and a jungle man, and it is full of madness.

With the rainforests deteriorating and many species becoming either extinct or are endangered, such slot games based on wild animals and jungles are only going to gain in popularity. Man’s fascination with the unknown is everlasting, and it is not hard to understand why such online slots are so popular. Jurassic Park was meant to be just a movie about dinosaurs. More than 20 years later, it has become much, much more, and is still influencing us, whether we are aware of it or not. There is a reason why that movie is a classic, an all-time great, one of its kind.
