“Big Ben” provides the players with a virtual tour through the streets of London. The aesthetics of the slot are fashioned after the streets of London, with the sights of Big Ben, the Royal Guards, the Royal Crown, Red Telephone Boxes, taverns and street lamps decorating the slot icons. The betting range is $0.01-$5 which is best suited for newcomers. But would the lack-lustre bet range interest the deep pockets? We doubt. The max win of 30,000x sounds very lucrative, even at a relatively low $5 max bet. The prospect of 25 max free spins is another silver lining that could grab attention, along with moderately high regular payouts shooting upto 1,000x. However, the RTP of 95% coupled with the medium-high variance can be a significant disadvantage of this slot. Payouts would be sporadic and unpredictable. Players can also explore the Big Ben free version to acclimatize themselves to the Big Ben real money game. Players can also try out the Dragon Emperor slot for a 1,000x bonus multiplier or Queen of the Nile II for an astounding 3,000x and 20 free games.
Free Game Feature
The Big Ben scatter symbol can grant 15, 20 and 25 free games for any 3x, 4x and 5x multiplier win. What is more attractive is that the wins during the free game rounds are doubled. Free games will create the opportunity to win more free games.
Big Ben Feature
The occurrence of the Big Ben scatter symbol anywhere on reels from 1 to 5 unlocks the Big Ben feature. Players should carefully listen to the number of chimes of Big Ben, as chime counts from 1-12 ensure a wide range of 2x-400x multipliers.
RTP and Payouts
The RTP of this slot is 95% which is a letdown for the players. The RTP along with the medium-high variance makes it somewhat difficult for aiming major wins. However, the range of avialble multipliers and free game features can moderately aid in balancing out the RTP disadvantages.
