Land of Dinosaurs
The general theme of this slot game is the land of dinosaurs and hidden jungles. From a time when monsters and threatening creatures roamed. Capturing the correct creatures will provide your wins. Scatters, wilds and natural phenomena like volcanoes will help increase those wins.
Genesis Island 5 Reel Slot
The slot game is a 5 reel slot that uses a 3 row grid layout. There are 20 fixed lines that are active at all times.
Many interesting features in the game like wilds that can fill entire reels. In addition regular symbols can land that are 2×2 or 3×3 symbols that can possibly fill multiple reels or rows at once.
Genesis Island Slot Icons
The main premium symbol is the gorilla symbol, he almost looks like king kong. Next there is a Tyrannosaurus rex, followed by a blue and grey looking monster. Many describe the blue creature as a crab monster since he does have crab looking type claws.
The minor symbols are filled out by card symbols of A, K, Q, J, 10.

Symbolized as a volcano the primal wild symbol can land on any reel in the base game as well as bonus spins. When landing a wild symbol 1 or 2 reels can expand in to full reel wilds. Volcano wild symbol will substitute for all regular symbols except the scatter on a payline.
Wild symbol may appear at same time as a mega reel which has the possibility to be a huge win.
The scatter symbol is easily identified and simply states Free Spins on it.
Any time you land a full 3 x 3 scatter in a 4 reel mega reel you gain 10 free spins. Every free spin will award a new mega reel. You can re-trigger 10 additional free spins again by landing another 3×3 scatter.
There are times when a symbol will combine to create either a 2 reel or 3 reel Mega reel. High pay icons and wilds can also combine in this manner as a mega reel. Mega reels appear completely at random. During free spin rounds they will appear on every free spin.
Evolution Mega Spins
Any time you land a full 3×3 scatter in a 3 reel mega reel you get 10 free spins. This free spin feature can be re-triggered.
High Minimum Bet Amounts
The minimum bet amounts for this game are $25.00 per spin. We have seen maximums at $1000.00 or more depending on the current VIP levels. Some VIP levels enable this game for a maximum of $10,000 per spin. Slots such as this are clearly more popular among high roller slot players.
Currently when we prepared the review of this game the rtp was unknown. If or when we can get it confirmed we will update the review to reflect that.
Conclusion to Genesis Island Slot
To summarize our thoughts, based on the $25 minimum bet this is not a slot for the budget minded player. For example, you are wagering a minimum of $100 just to spin it 4 times. Volatility and rtp aside we can not see this as a very viable option for a lot of players.
The game play and theme of the game is good and it is mostly a no nonsense style of video slot. We honestly think this would be a much nicer game if not for such high minimums. Nevertheless, for those that like to play slots with the higher per spin wagers this might just be a game for you. Average player be aware as this game can eat your bank very quickly.
