We remember vividly when this online slot from Microgaming first hit online casinos. There was a great deal of excitement surrounding it then, being one of the new generation games, and there is still quite a bit of excitement to be had when playing this slot. Named – Around the World, if you really can’t get around the world in real life, you certainly the might be able to get around it virtually in the game. It is a five reel, non-progressive, twenty –pay-line, Online Video Slot, with a maximum jackpot of £/€/$100,000, made up of 100 000 coins.
If you love the Jules Verne tale of the wager made between The Geographical Society of London, and Phileas Fogg, to travel around the world in eight days, chances are you will love this slot too.
OK, so, we already know there is the potential to win huge cash prizes featured in this particular slot, now we need to find out how. There is a Wild Symbol, as well as a Scatter symbol, Multiplier and more (check out the reverse spin feature). A maximum bet on this game is 200 coins which could make it quite pricey, but there is a good betting range to choose from 0.01 up to 200.00, and a coin bet range of 0.01 to 1, with ten coins per line. And, yes…there is a pretty smart bonus game too.
The characters, modes of transportation, and so on, have all been beautifully graphically rendered in vintage style, and woven into this slot, from a backdrop of London, Paris, St. Petersburg, Egypt, New York and the Great Wall of China. Icons are trains, elephants, camels, steam ships, Chinese junks, aeroplanes, hot-air balloons, Globes, compasses and so on. The Around The World Logo is wild, as is Phileas Fogg, the scatter is the compass, and there is a Globe Bonus, plus a Travel Game.
The aim of this video slot is to land as many wilds, scatters, multipliers and bonus rounds as possible; of course all of this in the effort to land the very top prize. Make sure and read the pay tables carefully, this slot takes a little skill to understand. Fortunately it can be played in demo mode first before risking any money on a wager.
Around The World Bonus Features
A second screen opens that will see players travelling around the world too, this feature is triggered by the Globe icon. Land three or more on an active pay-line, then you are in for a travelling treat. We don’t want to say too much about it, as we don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun.
