There’s no getting away from the very British slot theme, from the moment you load up the game to every single spin, this Big Ben slot machine will immerse you in the land of the royals.
Set on a dark cobbled street in a back alley of London, this Aristocrat slot, like many of it’s kind, feels a little out dated. Though if you are reading this is because we suspect you love all things English, but needless to say, if that’s not for you, then perhaps something like Lucky88 or the Red Baron slot games, might be more for you.
Because this this Big Ben slot review is as patriotic as you can get without having the actual royal family on the reels.
These 5 reels, 25 pay lines are covered in Union Jack flags, street lights, crowns, red buses, the iconic red telephone box, and a few old tavern signs.
Everyone knows there’s always a pub around the next corner in London.
But it’s the titular slot scatter symbol Big Ben that plays the biggest part in your slot entertainment here. It provides you with a possibly huge 1,000 times your bet win for finding 5, as well as triggering the free spins and an extra Big Ben bonus feature.
The wild symbol is represented by the Queens guard, dressed in red, and with the recognisable tall black bear skin hat. He’s the one that helps your casino budget tick along.
He comes with a 2 multiplier and shows up pretty often, making what can be a few dismal wins, that little bit better.
The betting range here allows you to wager between 0.25 to 50.00 per spin, giving you plenty of chance at spinning for a nice long while.
This medium volatility slot hits frequently, but still treat it with respect.
It might not eat your budget as harder hitting slots like the WMS or IGT games, but that doesn’t mean that if you’re not careful, this city will make you pay through the nose for a cup of winnings.
This is London after all.
Once again the Big Ben slot symbol is your friend. Find 3 across the reels and you’ll get 15 free spins, 4 gives you 20 and the rare 5 scatters will give you 25 free games and an amazing 1000x your bet win, straight off the bat.
Personally, we’ve only ever managed to hit the 15 free games, and with that you can still get anything between 30x – 50x your bet back. These aren’t huge wins and, even with their 2x multiplier, you aren’t going to get wins like you can with Cleo in the Queen of the Nile 2 slot game.
However that’s not all this Big Ben video slot has hiding in it’s clock tower.
These scatters can also aid you with some very decent multipliers in a random chime bonus game.
Find scatters on reel 1 and 5 and you’ll enter the Big Ben bonus feature where the bell will chime a random number of times.
You’ll be looking to hear those sweet bells ring all day as for every chime, you are rewarded with an increasing multiplier on your win of that spin.
You’ll get your win multiplied from x2 for 1 chime all the way up to x500 for 12 chimes
Here we’ve had between 6 and 8 chimes leading to x12 and x16 our win. Not bad for a little extra bonus.
We have to admit that living in the UK ourselves we weren’t the biggest fans of this Aristocrat slot. Yes the theme can appeal to many across the world who like everything that this small island has to offer, but for us it had one cliche too many.
The fact that the free spins can sometimes be hard to catch means we’ll often quickly move to some of our other favourite of 5 reels slots if Big Ben isn’t feeling very giving.
Usually the slightly better, and more lucrative, Choy Sun Doa. That said, it doesn’t that the Big Ben slot doesn’t have plenty to offer.
If you like slots with free spins, a bonus game that can reward at any time, along with that potentially huge 1000x your bet with five scatters, then Big Ben is perfect to lucky anglophiles out there.Play Now at Guts »
