Time travel is the theme of this very good-looking online slot from a small developer called Foxium; it’s released on the Odobo software platform and it’s called Big Time Journey. At first glance it would appear to have a just a free spins round but dig a bit deeper and there’s a time travelling element to this game along with achievements.
Big Time Journey is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines; the reels spin on an industrial looking time machine and we begin out time-travelling journey during the Edwardian age. The rather young inventor watches over things from the left hand side.
The four high value symbols include a clock along with red, green and purple jewels set into a gold background; metallic 10, J, Q, K and A icons make up the lower values.
The wild symbol and the scatter are both metallic and are labelled ‘Wild’ and ‘Big Time Journey’ respectively.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Big Time Journey scatter symbols anywhere in view and not only does it award eight free spins, it also starts the time-travelling component of this game.
Initially you will be asked to spin a wheel which will land on a coloured gem; that gem determines which time period you travel to for the free spins:
- Ice Age
- Jurassic Era
- Medieval Era
- Victorian Era
- World War I
Now the background will change to reflect that era and the spins will begin. More spins can be re-triggered by landing three more scatters and when the round is over you will be returned to the Edwardian age.
Each era you visit will be represented above the reels by a coloured gem and if you manage to collect all five gems the Future becomes available. If you reach this point and trigger the free spins, you no longer need to spin the wheel – you can just choose which age to visit.
If achievements are your thing you can keep track of what you’ve accomplished (eras visited, collect 3 gems, etc) from the paytable.
Big Time Journey is definitely worth checking out – it looks and sounds good and the time-travelling element adds a little excitement. The RTP is a perfectly acceptable 96.02%.
