Playing slot games can see players travelling around the world without all that hassle of having to queue up at the airport. Well, in EGT’s ‘The Big Journey’ slot, we take a trip all over the globe and if you can win lots of coins playing this entertaining slot, then you might be off to the airport sooner than you think.
‘The Big Journey’ can be played at online casinos that use software by EGT. It has a total of five reels and on its three rows of symbols there are a total of just ten pay-lines. Those ten pay-lines aren’t a fixed amount so you are in a position where you must choose just how many to activate for each spin of the reels. Players can bet up to 20 coins on each of those pay-lines so the minimum cost of playing this game with all pay-lines activated is 0.10 and the max bet 200. A wide range so finding a level at which you can comfortably play shouldn’t be any problem at all.
The symbols in this slot mostly adhere to the theme apart from the nine to Ace playing card symbols that produce the low-paying wins. For higher windfalls, you need to get the other symbols which represent famous landmarks from around the globe. There’ the Sydney Opera House, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and The Statue of Liberty. We also get to see the male and female travellers who are lucky enough to be going on this big journey.
The wild symbol in this travel themed slot is the airplane that takes the two travellers on their fantastic trip around the world. This can get you some big wins when it lands on the reels and substitutes for other symbols. Hopefully that will bring some big wins that will boost your account balance. Any win created by the wild is doubled so hopefully it’ll be a busy symbol when you play ‘The Big Journey.’ The wild can’t replace the scatter symbol which is the train but five wilds on an activated pay-line wins you 200,000 coins.
We all fancy some free spins and they can be triggered here if you are able to get three or more of the train scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin. There’s a tasty 25 free games awarded and the even better news is that any wins you get are doubled. With so many free games and that multiplier, it’s perhaps not surprising that this bonus round can’t be re-triggered.

‘As is often the case with EGT slots, there’s the Jackpot Cards feature. This is randomly triggered and the more you stake, the better the chance of that happening. If it is triggered then a second-screen appears which has 12 face down cards. The gambler need to choose them and when three of the same suit are chosen that’s the jackpot you win. The top prize is for three spades and that’s followed in descending order by hearts, diamonds, and clubs.
The Big Journey’ also has a gamble feature. This comes along when you are lucky enough to get a winning combination in the base game. The option to play this only comes up when your win is less than 350 coins. It’s not compulsory but if you do decide to go for the gamble, it’s the playing cards game. The task is to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card and whether it’ll be red or black. A correct decision will see the win doubled with four more chances to increase it even further. Be careful though because a wrong guess sees you lose your win so perhaps only gamble low wins.
The gameplay here is similar to that you will encounter when playing other video slots at online casinos. If you fancy playing some more EGT slot games then have a play of ‘Coral Island’ which isn’t far off being an exact match. It has ten pay-lines, a gamble feature and the Jackpot Cards feature but the free spins round offer 15 games with the chance to cash-out tripled wins. Also, test out the Ash Gaming slot ‘Batman and Catwoman Cash’ game which also has a progressive jackpot that players can try to win as well as free spins.
‘The Big Journey’ video slot has a lot of the gameplay that is seen in plenty of other EGT games. The theme is a good, if not unique one and well adhered to. The fact the wild symbol can create double wins is always helpful and 25 free spins with doubled wins is great news. Add on the Jackpot Cards feature and the gamble feature, then this is a game that you should add to your play list.
