The Big Journey slot is one of those globetrotting games where the reels depict various famous travel destinations and their landmarks along with the means of getting to them. If you blend Ash Gaming’s Around The World with Netent’s Mega Fortune Dreams you’ll just about have the idea of this slot, an inspirational theme around the lives of the glamorous. The reels are placed over collage of iconic structures such as the Pyramids, Eiffel Tower and Leaning Tower of Pisa and although we get the usual EGT trotting noises there are some fun effects and sounds when certain destination wins land. Will our bankroll last us enough miles to complete this Big Journey though?
On the reels…
The Big Journey gives us 10 paying lines over its 5 reels of 3 rows, with all symbols single and we have normal left-to-right pays only. The awards for 5-of-a-kind wins are quite high and if we see the Private Jet Wild not only does it double any wins it appears in, but you get a huge 1000x bet for a full line! The High Speed Train scatter will award 500x if you were lucky enough to trigger the bonus with one on all 5 reels, and then we have the picture icons: the Male or Female character pay 80x, Eiffel Tower 40x, Statue Of Liberty or Sydney Opera House 25x with six card values paying either 12.5x or 10x for a full line.
There are no random in-play features as EGT simply don’t do those very often, if at all but we get some good animations and effects, for example when you win with the Statue Of Liberty a brief burst of a rock concert will occur or if the Sydney Opera House wins a fireworks display erupts over it.
Big Journey bonus
So when three or more High Speed Trains roar into their animation mode that means you have arrived at destination free spins – you get 25 of them at 2x multiplier and they can be retriggered indefinitely. There aren’t any other enhancements but retriggers are quite common and they can rack up some good amounts too considering the decent line pays we have here.
The Big Journey slot is quite a volatile one due to the high line pays so you need a lot of Air Miles to begin your trip here! You will usually be handsomely rewarded though in the free games and I found that each alternative trigger paid over 100x during my travels. I do like the sound effects and animations and the RTP of 95.10% is decent enough too plus you always have the chance of a large hit in the base game. I will surely be tempted to go sightseeing again – when I can afford the ticket!
