This game, as can be guessed from the title, has an intriguing theme loosely based on the famous tale of Around the World in 80 days by Jules Verne. For anyone who does not know the book, it is the story of an English gentleman called Phileas Fogg, who makes a bet at his club that he can go round the world in 80 days. The bet is accepted by his friends, and off he goes, using all manner of transportation, to travel through the countries of the world.
The colourful backdrop of the game includes skylines of some very well known cities, like London, Paris and New York. The symbols in Around the World include a Passport, the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, the Clock Tower, Mount Rushmere and a Pyramid. Of all the symbols, the Pagoda, the Eiffel Tower and the airplane are the most valuable. The graphics are in an antique design, with the symbols appearing to be painted on Victorian postage stamps. There is also a selection of the travel methods used, like a Ship, Balloon, Train, Elephant and Camel. There is also the Traveller himself, who can substitute for all other symbols too.
Around the World is a five reel, 20 pay line slots game from Ash Gaming, and comes with bonus rounds, wilds and scatters like you find at Gaming Club online casino. The adventure theme of this slots game will keep most players fascinated and interested for a long while.
There is also a big spinning wheel featured as a compass, which is numbered and also has written on it a couple of letters. One of the big ideas of the game is based on the concept of guessing what the next number will be, either higher or lower than the number previously spun. If the player is mistaken in his guess twice in a row, he has to start the game over.
The two Wild symbols in Around the World are the Around the World symbol, and the Traveller symbol. Both Wilds will substitute for other symbols, apart from other Wilds, the Scatter and the Globe bonus. The Traveller symbol carries a multiplier of two times, and any two of them appearing on the reel ensures that the wins will be doubled.
Unique Reverse Play Feature
Around the World has a unique feature, called the Reverse Play feature. If the player feels that luck is not with him, he can switch to this feature and play in reverse. If the player lands on a non-winning combination on the selected pay line, he will win. In essence, the non winning combinations will now win, while the normal winning combinations will not. This slot game also features an Auto Bet button, which lets the player activate between ten and twenty five automatic spins.
On the Wilds, there is a bonus win of two times the original bet on any winning combination, but the real appeal is the cumulative multiplier on the Compass scatter, which can be from two times to thirty two times the original wager.
Travelling the Globe will Win Prizes
The bonus round will trigger the Travel Bonus, if the player finds 3, 4 or 5 Globe Scatters anywhere on the reels. The player can collect all his winnings at this point if he wishes.
The idea of Around the World slots game is, the further the player can go, the more money he will win.
