  • Tyrannosaurus Rex – Players are awarded 12 free spins with Wild Reels. Stacks of wild symbols will appear on all reels and T-Rex symbols will appear stacked 3-deep on all the reels. Whenever a T-Rex appears, players are guaranteed a winning payout.
  • Velociraptor – Players are awarded 12 free spins with split and multiplier wilds. Each time a wild symbol lands, if it can contribute to a winning combination, it can split in 2. This can lead to six-of-a-kind wins, which pay out twice the payout of a five-of-a-kind win. In addition, a win with a wild symbol will award a random multiplier value of 4x, 5x or 6x the win. The Velociraptor symbol stacks 3 deep on all reels.
  • Brachiosaurus – Players are awarded 12 free spins with a mystery multiplier value. During the feature, players will be awarded a random multiplier value of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x which will apply to a random number of free spins. The free spins can be re-triggered in this feature.
  • Triceratops – Players will be awarded 12 free spins with running wilds, random stack nudges and re-spins. Initial stacks of wilds will be 3 deep, but on each subsequent spin, one more wild will be added to the stack. If a partial stack spins up, a number of Triceratops will stampede across the reels creating full wild reels which will freeze in place while the remaining reels re-spin. Any full stack of wilds will hold in place and award a re-spin of the other reels.
  • Dilophosaurus – Players will be awarded 12 free spins with a winning wilds feature. The Dilophosaurus can appear on any reel, spit at a symbol and transform it into a wild symbol. The wild symbol then remains in place until it contributes to a winning combination.
