Big Ben Aristocrat Slot
Video slots are just as popular in Britain as anywhere else, if not more so, so it comes as something as a surprise that there aren’t more British themed slots games out there. Fortunately, one of the rare instances of there being such a game comes from Aristocrat, a developer where you know that the game itself is going to be of the highest quality.
To say that the game is British would be something of an insult to British people given that it is more of a British stereotype! Consider the things that are up for sale in a gift shop if you’ve ever been to London and you’ll have a decent idea of what this is all about, with red telephone boxes and double decker buses being two of the more prominent symbols, alongside the natural inclusion of the famed playing card icons. You’ve got 25 win lines over which to line up these symbols and can count on the assistance of the Beefeater who is not only wild but will also pay out a tasty 30,000 coin prize of his own should you manage to land five in a row. Even if you’re only using one or two to contribute to a win, he’ll still double the resulting prize value automatically.
Hit the Scatters for Free Spins
In true Aristocrat style, the title symbol of the game serves as the scatter symbol and landing three or more of them at once will lead to the free spins bonus game. It’s a case of the more the merrier too as landing three will award fifteen free games, which is already pretty handy, while four in view will lead to twenty free spins. Landing five Big Ben scatters at the same time will award 25 free spins and while there’s nothing themed about this particular bonus action, you can still rely on an instant win doubler that applies to each and every prize.
Themed Action in the Big Ben Mini Game
Fortunately, this game is not completely at a loss for themed bonus action and that’s all thanks to the Big Ben Chime feature. Landing the relevant scatter on reels one and five at the same time will see the action paused while the bell rings. Wins are awarded as a multiple of your total stake and more chimes make for bigger prizes. A single chime will see the return of double your stake but things can get so much better with a top end of 500 times your bet for the full twelve rings.
Big Ben is basically everything that players would expect from an Aristocrat slot and a little bit more on top thanks to interaction with the game’s theme. If you’re a fan of Britain or just great action, be sure to check it out with no deposit or download at the top of the page. You can also play it for cash and will find this game alongside plenty of other Aristocrat favourites when you head over to one of the great gaming brands featured to the side of this review.
