Look & Feel

Orient Express is no exception and you’ll be surrounded by all things luxurious. The slot is themed around a luxury train ride through all the most beautiful cities. You get to play in style with the backdrop being transparent through the reels and the reels framed by the golden window frames of the train. The backdrop is basically a window view of the city you are currently visiting. On the reels you will find luxury and high class symbols. The low value symbols are precious blue, red, green and pink gems framed in bronze. The high value symbols are the high class passengers who will be going on the journey with you. Everything about this slot screams luxury, upper class and aristocracy and the best part of all is you get to enjoy it like you’ve been born into it.
Sound & Score
The soundtrack is a superb and relaxing tune which takes you back to Paris or Italy in the olden days. It will make you reminisce over the days watching your favourite black and white or classic styled movies. It’s subtle enough to be kept on loud throughout your gameplay whether you play for a minute or hours on end. It comes as no surprise as Yggdrasil always seems to be spot on when matching designs and sounds to a theme.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The slot comes with 4 wilds of which the general wild is a golden symbol of the game name. The wilds substitute for all other symbols on the reels except the free spin symbols. The 3 other wilds available in the game are linked to a certain city and you will only find them on your reels during your visit to this city.
To trigger the free spins feature you need to land at least three of the globe free spin symbols. The amount of symbols used to trigger the feature will determine the amount of free spins awarded. Landing three will get you 7, 4 symbols will get you 15 free spins and if you score 5 free spin symbols you’ll walk away with 30 free spins. The free spin feature is played out in the same mode as the triggering spin and can be retriggered.

In Paris you will receive walking wilds that award a free re-spin and move to the left of the reels until they are completely out of sight. New walking wilds can appear during the re-spins and walking wilds appear more frequently during the free spin mode.
In Venice you will come across a Multiplier clock that appears after a winning spin to award a win multiplier. You can receive a 2-5x multiplier during both the base game and the free spins feature.
