The Orient Express, which is the title of this next slot from Yggdrasil, borrows its theme from the long-distance Paris to Constantinople (Istanbul) luxury passenger train that was designed back in 1883. While it has long ceased operating, its history has not been forgotten as is evident with this 5-reel, 3-row and 20 fixed paylines slot with up to 20,000 coins ready to be won!
Graphics and audio that amuse and delight
The slot invites you on four stops on its famed journey from Paris, through Venice, Belgrade and finally Istanbul. Yggdrasil is known for their creative design and so it should come really as no surprise really that this slot does not disappoint. There are no reels to observe – just suspended symbols atop a train window with a view of the Eifel Tower. There are eight base symbols that include four passengers and four card suit symbols. There is some mild animation which includes the swaying of a curtain in the adjacent window and fantastic French-style music that pleasantly chimes away in the background. The sound effects can be amusing and entertaining depending on the situation.
Paris, Venice, Belgrade and Istanbul mode
The slot has four distinct modes referred to as Paris, Venice, Belgrade and Istanbul. Your departure is always France but by unlocking free spins you advance along the route. Each city has a different feature to keep things chugging along. In Paris, the ticket inspector walking wild makes an appearance atop of another symbol and credits you a free respin, moving left to right after each spin. The respin continues to run provided that there is an inspector present on the reels and it is possible to land additional inspectors while you are already playing with respins. While the inspector can appear during the free spin mode and base games, he will have a greater tendency to appear with the former. When in Venice, the Multiplier clock can appear, to act as a multiplier of between 2x and 5x in the base and free spin mode. In Belgrade the trains moving from left to right stop on a random reel which then turns between 1 and 3 reels wild. In Istanbul, a file of postcards of the four different cities scatter onto random positions in quantities of anywhere from 2 to 12 on the reels making them wild in both the base and free spins mode.
In addition to the features already mentioned, there is also a free spins symbol that can appear in sets of 3, 4 or 5 to unlock 7, 15 or 30 free spins. It is possible to re-trigger the feature for an even longer ride aboard the free spins!
