Around The World Microgaming slot appears to be inspired by the famous Jules Verne novel, called “Around the world in 80 days”. Since you have things like early 20th century airplanes as well among the symbols, it doesn’t seem to be directly themed around that book, but the inspiration is clearly there. With images of all sorts of means of locomotion from about one century ago, it’s a charming travel themed slot machine which also manages to offer a couple of features, consisting of wilds with multipliers, scatter symbols and a bonus game. You get 20 paylines here, and hopefully there will be payouts of up to $100,000 as well.
Betting and Prizes
You have 20 lines to work with, and so you first need to decide if you want to use them all. Each one will require a bet of at least 1 coin, though it can be taken up to 10 coins. Since coin values range between $0.01 and $1, you end up with line bets of up to $10 and total bets of up to $200.
The slot mentions a top jackpot of 10,000x, which given the wager system can mean a payout of 100,000 coins, or $100,000. It’s a good jackpot to go after, better than average in fact.
Around the World Slot Features
Two different wilds are used here, one of them better than the other in more ways than one. The simpler wild has the logo of the game on it, and it is just capable of substituting for other symbols, while also creating combinations which give out up to 5,000x in prizes.
The more complex wild will pay more when it forms a combo, up to 10,000x, and it will also apply a 2x multiplier to the regular symbol wins which are formed thanks to its substitution ability. Wilds can’t substitute for each other, and they also can’t replace scatters.
Another feature comes from the Compass, a scatter that will reward you with a prize that depends on your luck. It takes into account the Compass symbols which point North, and then it can pay you based on that and on the triggering symbols. You get up to 800x the bet value through this feature.
The final feature needs for 3 or more Globe icons to appear on a payline, and to form a combo. The reward will be this feature, where you get to travel on a route that you choose from the map. You can collect your prize, or you can use it on the map, trying to reach the destination and double the amount.
Theme & Design
It offers a charming design, with a vintage look to it, though mostly the kind that people like, not the kind that just looks dated. The symbols are inspired by various means of locomotion, so you will see steam ships, trains, balloons, airplanes, elephants and camels.
Around the World video slot is the perfect game for the adventurer in you, and if you’ve read Jules Verne’s book when you were a kid, you will definitely want to check out this slot as well.
