Embark on a journey through four historical sites with an intrepid explorer in the Aldo's Journey slot machine from Yggdrasil Gaming.
When this slot machine was announced in January 2019, its working title was Marco Polo, and it was immediately clear that the design and gameplay would be in line with the legendary Italian explorer and merchant. He left his hometown of Venice in 1271, began his journey through Asia and reached China and stayed there for 10 years. Therefore, it is not surprising that Yggdrasil Gaming included four locations, Italy, Persia, Mongolia and China, in their game design. But perhaps due to copyright issues, the main character was named Aldo instead of Marco Polo, and thus the slot machine itself was called Aldo's Journey (Aldo's Journey).
When opening the Aldo’s Journey slot machine, the first thing that catches your eye is a bright and colorful design made in the style of a cartoon. The background looks very unusual, since the playing field is located at once on four locations where Aldo travels (Italy, Persia, Mongolia and China). As for the technical characteristics, Aldo's Journey slot received a 5x5 playing field and 65 lines with which to form your combinations. The symbolism of the Aldo’s Journey slot machine has nothing to do with the theme, on the reels you will find card suits located on coins. They are followed by green, blue, purple and red gems. There are two types of wild symbols in the game, the standard one is a golden icon with an inscription. The second is Aldo himself - he is Journey Wild and appears on every spin in the main game and bonus features, moving through the cells. Both wild symbols perform the usual duties of replacing images. The Medieval Compass acts like a scatter and appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Free Spins are activated when scatter symbols (compass) appear on the second, third and fourth reels. After that, 7 free spins will be available to you. Please note that the playing field is divided into four territories and a cell located in the center. Depending on which territory Aldo is located in during the triggering of free spins, which of the five locations will be selected for the free spins draw will be determined. There are five options in total:
But that's not all, there is another very interesting feature called Wild Time. It is activated every time during the main game, Aldo lands in the center cell. After that, you can get from three to nine additional wild symbols, as well as a x2, x3 or x4 multiplier for your winnings.
Summing up, I would like to say that Aldo’s Journey is a very interesting and high-quality slot machine developed by Yggdrasil Gaming, playing which you can make an exciting journey around the world and earn good prizes.
