Traveling has been on ban for over a year so we got an idea of creating our own itinerary using exciting casino games. Here comes our 5-game trip around the world.
To kick our journey with the right foot, we decided to take a slow and relaxed start to get in to the holiday mood. After a passionate discussion 5 games from different continents and with different themes and game providers were chosen. Hawaii was selected as our primary destination for laid-back beach destination to get a strong escape from the everyday cycle. Then we’ll head to Europe and Paris, France before taking a trip down to Egypt and ancient treasures.
From the Middle East it was convenient to continue to farther east and China. We’ll be ending our relaxing but exciting trip in Australia by taking in some of the unique nature from Down Under. This itinerary includes games from 5 different gaming studios and slots that have distinctive features and attributes. So buckle up, because it is time to take-off!
Aloha Cluster Pays (NetEnt)
Slow and steady gets you ready. This applies on our first destination that is the beautiful islands of Hawaii and Aloha Cluster Pays from Net Entertainment. The game itself offers an easygoing beginning as it is a low volatility slot with a $0.10 minimum bet. In other words, we can expect that our budget will stay solid after our first stop since the bet sizes are small and the game is known to pay out more often than average.
The gametable is set with six reels in five rows. It was one of the first online casino slots with Cluster Pays technology creating wins not based on lines but clusters. The max win in this product is 10,000 x your bet size so with the maximum wager per spin of $10, the theoretic top prize is $100,000. This is achieved by getting your reels full of red wooden masks so 30 symbols in total.
Your best chance in scoring this grand prize is during the sticky win repin feature. The winning cluster will stay on the reels and others will keep turning as long as you can land matching symbols with the respins. If all goes well, you could get full 30 symbols in your cluster score big wins. Other interesting special feature is the symbol substitution. This wooden box with a question mark on it will transform into the highest paying symbol on your winning combinations. The main bonus game in Aloha Cluster Pays is a free spin feature. Every time the lowest paying symbols are dropped out of the picture so that during your final spins large wins with main symbols can be expected.
A Night in Paris (Betsoft)
Bonjour and welcome to France! This is A Night in Paris to remember for quite some time. Team up with the master burglar who is on a mission to steal expensive artifacts all over the French capital. Symbols and characters include familiar places and faces as for example Napoleon Bonaparte and the Eiffel Tower are some of the game’s symbols and strong icons of France.
The most interesting features are several bonus games. Caught in the Museum is an extra game in which you as the thief need to choose between three objects to steal. There is a statue, a painting of Napoleon and a vase. Choose wisely and win big prizes before the officer Jerome LaBaste discovers you. Other funny features is the Chase Free Spin mode that can be triggered with three or more police badges.
In total this game has 30 paylines and a max win of up to millions of dollars. Oh, right! We forgot to mention that this is a progressive jackpot slot from Betsoft. The minimum bet is only one cent ($0.01) but that would only cover one line. Minimum wager with all 30 lines in play would be $0.30 but in theory you could win millions only with one cent bets. To trigger the jackpot you need to land 5 Jerome LaBaste symbols on the reels. Merci and au revoir!
Book of Dead (Play’n GO)
Prepare for a heatwave as traveling next to Egypt with our adventurous friend Rich Wilde in Play’n GO’s super popular Book of Dead slot. This is one of the most played games ever and partly due to the fact that it is also one of the most used game for awarding free spins. Quite traditional layout has five reels in three rows. Wins are calculated from left to right and there are 10 paylines to keep it simple.
Your task is to find the mystical Book of Dead revealing unseen treasures. In real life this would be the maximum win of 5,000 x your own bet on a single spin. The minimum bet is only $0.10 and the max win of $100,000 is a bit low, which could explain the popularity as the designated no deposit free spins slot status at many casinos. Nice themed sounds, effects and beautiful graphics are creating a marvelous atmosphere for us dreaming to be Indiana Jones.
The actual Book of Dead works as a scatter in this game and three of these symbols will trigger a free spin mode with 10 free spins. Some times you can earn additional freeplays if you can get 4 or even 5 scatters. In this case scatters work also as wilds substituting any other symbols. Another special feature is expanding symbols that can randomly take over whole reels.
Fu Fortunes Megaways (iSoftBet)
Golden dragons, jade medallions and turtles. Yes, we have arrived in China with Fu Fortunes Megaways from iSoftBet. Some might not be yet familiar with the Megaways mechanics so a short introduction should be in place. There are six reels that are all dynamic and can carry between two or seven rows of symbols. Each time you press spin the game within the game will first draw you the number of paylines and after that the symbols will roll on to the reels. Each spin can have between 64 and 117,649 paylines due to this dynamic reel technology.
Also the wins can be huge since this feature contributes heavily on the volatility. You can win quite big bucks with a wide open game table but get basically peanuts with narrow reels. The minimum bet is only $0.20 and the number of paylines has no affect on that. You always pay the same amount no matter the amount of the active paylines. The maximum bet is $20.00 per spin and theoretical max win is up to 25,000 x your bet size.
Main special feature is the Fortune Free Spins bonus game in which you’ll be credited 10 free spins and all low paying symbols will be removed from the equasion. You need to collect at least 4 Jade Scatters to trigger this feature and any additional scartters will bring you more spins. Wild symbols are subsituting all symbols except Jade Scatters and can unlock win multipliers from the fortune pots above the gametable. If you can trigger the middle pot, you’ll win one of four instant jackpot wins.
Crazy Mix (TrueLab)
This game takes us directly to Down Under. It is time to head out to the great Outback of Australia with our hero, a random aussie guy with tattoos and surfing shorts. This blokey bloke is hosting this slot with 5+1 reels and 3 rows. There is 15 paylines, high volatility RNG and a max win of 25,000 x your bet. You can play with as little as $0.15 per spin or go up to $210 max bet.
Some of you might have wondered about the 5+1 number of reels but that is the case. This additional extra cocktail wheel is helping you to collect fruits and when you have collected all 4, you can make a cocktail. Our host, Chuck Wild appears to be his name, is randomly appearing on the reels with Boomerang Respins. He is both forming winning combinations but also throwing his boomerang and catching fruits for the cocktail. When you have 4 fruits, you can make the cocktail and a Cocktail Free Spins feature will trigger.
During this bonus game you’ll be getting extra perks based on the fruits you have collected with Chuck, who by the way brings us very strong Abo Casino vibes. Back to the point, red quandong gives you random wilds, jackfruit adds +1 more spins for reach, blue quandong will add +33% percent on your bet size and finger lime will give you a win multiplier +1 for each. Symbols include aboriginal style card symbols, fruits and Australian animals like kangaroos and koalas.
Hope you had a pleasant flight with us and we wish to see you again!
