FEATURES

Traveling the Four Cities

In Orient Express players get 4 games in one. Each city has it’s own features, it’s own background and it’s own Free Spins. This makes the game feel like there is always something new to discover. Players start in Paris and then move to the consecutive cities by completing the 4 different Free Spin modes. After each Free Spin mode, a map appears with the player’s current location. When players first start playing Orient Express, they will not be able to choose the next city the train stops at, which will entice them to keep playing. When they complete Istanbul’s Free Spin mode, the last of the 4 cities, they will be able to chose the next city they wish to play in after each Free Spin mode. Winning in Free Spin Mode

Not only do wilds appear more often in Free Spin mode, Free Spins can also be re-triggered. This means that Orient Express has the potential to keep players in their seat playing for a long time trying to combo those Free Spins.4 Distinct Wilds and a Win Multiplier

Wilds are the hallmarks of Slots and if one is good, then four are awesome. Wilds appear randomly in the base game and either every spin or very often in Free Spin mode. Each wild is represented by a different train themed character or item. They have their own special animation which is sown seamlessly into the game-play. On top of the 4 different wilds, there is also a Win Multiplier, which will make any player get out of their seat begging for that x5.

WALKING WILD

Walking wilds appear on top of random symbols after the reels stop. They grant a Free re-Spin and move left to the adjacent reel. Re-spins are awarded as long as at least one walking wild symbol in on the reels. New walking wilds can appear during re-spins.

Base game: Walking wilds appear randomly on any reel.

Free Spin mode: Walking wilds appear more often.

WIN MULTIPLIER

The Multiplier clock appears after a winning spin to grant a win multiplier.

Base game: A 2-5x multiplier is applied randomly to winning spins.

Free Spin mode: A 2-5x multiplier is applied to all winning spins.

WILD REEL

Small trains drive from the right side of the game panel to the left. They award a wild reel on which ever reel they stop.

Base game: 1-3 reels can become wild reels during a spin. 

Free Spin mode: 1-3 reels are turned into wild reels each Free Spin.

RANDOM WILDS

Postcards fly onto random symbols and turn them into wilds. Random wilds cannot appear on top of Free Spin symbols and Wild symbols. 

Base game: 2-12 symbols are turned into wilds randomly.

Free Spin mode: 2-12 symbols are turned into wilds after each Free Spin.

  • GameplayThere are 2 types of train rides. There’s the train ride you take everyday to work, and there’s the train ride you take once in a life time to some exotic destination; this game is definitely the latter. 
    The game play is enticing, even addictive. The concept of unlocking new cities will excite any curious player and hook them into prolonged game-play. One of the defining features in this game is the ability to combo 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.

Theme

The game has a distinctly European feel. Everything from the red wine displayed on the Venice game panel to the high symbols represented by British travelers, gives the player a sense of European extravagance. Though the graphics and game-play are very modern, the theme is definitely classic. The passengers look like they came from a time when it was the train that was the future of transportation not the Automobile or plane.

GAME RULES

ABOUT THE GAME

Orient Express is a video slot with 5 reels and 20 lines paying from left to right.

HOW TO CALCULATE PAYLINE WINS

  • To calculate your total payline coin win, calculate all payline wins and add them together.
  • To calculate a single payline win, count the number of identical symbols lined up in sequence on the line starting from the far left.
  • If three or more identical symbols are lined up, find the coin win value in the Pay Table. There you can find the value for 3 in a row, 4 in a row, and 5 in a row for all the symbols. Only the highest winning combination per line is paid out.
  • The above doesn’t include any free spin symbols which pay scattered.
  • If the winning combination starts with three wilds, there can be many ways to interpret the win. In this scenario, only the highest win combination is paid out.
  • Calculate the total win in your home currency by multiplying the total coin win with your coin value.
