All aboard! Jump in your carriage and set off on a journey through time on the legendary Orient Express. Start your path to discovery in romantic Paris and make your way through Europe, stopping in watery Venice and historic Belgrade before reaching the magnificent city of Istanbul.
Unique And Refined Slot Gaming Masterpiece
Orient Express is a video slot inspired by the detective novel and the new film, with five reels and 20 lines paying from left to right. The game has eight regular symbols, with the four high paying symbols represented by train passengers, while the four low paying symbols are card suits.
The game’s cartoon artwork is a masterclass of tasteful game design. The graphics are superbly done with period flourishes. There’s also a beautiful Orient Express Wild which appears in all modes and three other wilds which appear respectively in Paris, Belgrade and Istanbul. To that you must add the relaxing soundtrack, which has a bohemian feel that harks back to a bygone era of luxury and class. Violin, accordion, kettle drums and piano combine in a relaxing symphony of smooth.
Yggdrasil Gaming – Game Design Gurus
Yggdrasil have outshone the competition, and themselves, once again. Their philosophy is one of leaving behind the boring and embracing unconventional design in their slot games. This emphasis on creativity allows them to go wild when designing their products, which shines through in this slot game. Who would ever have thought a 300-year-old murder mystery could inspire an unrivalled slot machine experience like this?
20 Paylines Of Mystery And Fun
Murder on the Orient Express is not advisable, but this beauty of a game will definitely let you kill some time – and make some money too. With 20 paylines and the possibility of earning a maximum 1000 times your stake, it’s definitely worth a spin or two.
Each of the cities have their respective unique features – Walking Wilds, Win Multipliers, Wild Reels and Random Wilds – and you can move from destination to destination by hitting the Free Spins. The game starts in Paris, moving on to other cities after completing the Free Spin mode in your current city. Once you’ve reached Istanbul and unlocked all the cities, you’re free to pick your favourite destination and feature after every Free Spins round. So don your finest outfits and join gaming’s high society on the Orient Express! Your current location is even saved between sessions, lest travel fatigue set in.
The game is enthralling to play. The exciting concept of unlocking new cities gives you something to aim for and plays on our curiosity.
Take A Spin Around The World!
When traveling the four cities on the Orient Express, players get four games in one. Each stop is a city with its own features, its own background artwork and its own Free Spins. There is always something new to discover.
Bonjour Paris! Look out for walking wilds which are represented by a ticket inspector – they appear on top of random symbols after the reels stop spinning. They will give you a free re-spin and move left to the next reel – the re-spins continue as long as at least one walking wild is on the reels. Obviously, new walking wild symbols can appear during the re-spins.
In Venice, a win multiplier ranging between 2x and 5x can appear randomly after a winning spin.
In Belgrade, you can benefit from Wild Reels. Players will see trains drive across the reels from right to left, changing a reel into a wild reel when they stop. Up to three reels can be turned fully wild – srećno!
In Istanbul, you will say many a shukran when random wilds in the form of postcards fly onto symbols transforming them into wilds. There are four random wilds representing the four cities.
Winning In Free Spins Mode
One of the defining features in this game is the ability to combine Free Spins. Not only can Walking Wilds spawn more Walking Wilds, giving the player a sense of big value per spin, players can also re-trigger a Free Spin mode from Free Spins.
When you complete Istanbul’s Free Spin mode, you’re offered a choice of the next city in which to play after each Free Spin mode. Not only do wilds appear more often in Free Spin mode, but Free Spins can also be re-triggered.
Three scatters will give you seven free spins whilst four earns you 15 free spins. If you get five scatters, you will benefit from 30 free spins. You can retrigger the feature, potentially getting an eye-popping total of 60 free spins! That’s enough to make your head…err…spin!
One Ticket To Istanbul, Please!
There are two types of train rides. There’s the daily commute train ride and there’s the once in a lifetime train ride to some exotic destination; this game is emphatically the latter.
