Big Ben Slot Machine Overview
When one thinks of London, it’s likely they’ll envision Queen Elizabeth and the Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, the Bobbies, Harrods, and – for sure – the Big Ben.
Designed in 1856, the famous clock has chimed its first note three years later. Did you know that originally it was called simply the Clock Tower? It wasn’t until 2012 that the name Big Ben was adopted to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The big bell, weighing more than 13 tons and famous for its reliability, strikes on the hour for the number of the hour, and if you hear its chime while playing Aristocrat’s Big Ben slot machine of the same name, it could make your virtual visit to London extremely profitable.
The Queen’s Guard Offers Assistance
Typically for an Aristocrat slot, Big Ben slot machine features 5 reels and 25 flexible pay lines. Bet per line can be set at very accessible €0.01 minimum and up to €2.5 maximum, offering the highest investment of €62.5 per spin.
The game plays with typical British and/or royal symbols, such as the crown, British flag, double-decker and recognisable red phone booth, among others. The famous Buckingham Palace guard takes on the role of Wild and doubles all wins it helps create. He’s also your highest-paying icon, offering as much as 3,000 credits for five on a pay line.
Can’t be bothered to keep clicking the mouse in order to play? No worries, Autoplay function will do the spinning automatically for up 100 rounds.
Big Ben Pays While Chiming
Generous Scattered Big Ben has the power to cash out up to 1,000x your total stake, which is truly generous, and having landed on reels 1 and 5, also launches 15, 20 or 25 free games (depending on whether the feature was triggered by 3, 4 or 5 Scatters). All your free spin wins will be doubled and new Scatter icons offer an opportunity to re-trigger the feature and continue spinning on the house. But that’s not all this popular British landmark has to offer!
Each time it shows up anywhere on reels 1 and 5, Big Ben will chime, and the number of times it does it determines the size of the prize. Fingers crossed that you manage to count 12 chimes and collect a whopping 500x your stake.
What’s more, each of your wins could potentially get doubled or quadrupled by correctly choosing card colour or suit. Gamble feature will allow you to do this up to 5 times, so feel free to calculate the boost one can receive with a bit of luck.
Whether you have enjoyed an actual visit to the UK’s capital or not, this is one trip to London you will not want to miss. There’s no need to look for a passport, book flights, find a hotel and hop on the bus or stop the famous black cab. Launching Aristocrat’s Big Ben slot machine will get you there in a second, and each sighting of London’s popular clock tower offers a chance of massive payouts.
What makes Big Ben Slot so special?
We have to come clean here and admit that we love London, the bustle, the culture, the opportunities it has to offer, so we are suckers for any game that uses the famous city as its theme. This is the case with Big Ben Slot so we apologise if we appear slightly biased in our appreciation of it. Of course, a theme on itself often isn’t enough to make a game special but there are a number of other factors that contribute to Big Ben to help put it head and shoulders over much of the competition.
We admit that the symbols and graphics have been accused by some of being cliched images from the British Capital. But, anyone who has visited can verify that there is no shortage of them in real life.
The ubiquitous Red Phone Box, the Red Double Decker Bus, Union Jack, and the clock face of Big Ben are all must-sees when visiting. They all transfer over to the slot well and give a fair representation of London – you will have no problem identifying where you are when you play this game. The way the slot has brought London to life is certainly one element in making it special.
Big Ben slot is fun to play and perfect for low rollers with 0.01 coin spins up to the higher rollers with 2.5 coins a spin. The game takes all of the iconographies, successfully employed, and wraps it all up with a generous jackpot tied on top.
Lucky punters can walk away with maximum payouts of up to 3000x their stake in this slot which is fitting for a city that is built on wealth and revolves around commerce. All up, this is a nice little number from Aristocrat.
