To be honest this slot is still a massive controversial for me because there are things what I adore here and others that I don’t like too much and I’m starting with this latter. With a name like this the player simple can’t go wrong with the idea that the slot is dedicated to the city of London and though the slot gives all of the symbols what initially can be expected but somehow their displaying solutions are not what hoped. The game is working along with Big Ben, guard, crown, flag telephone box or Double Decker emblems which are all very characteristic and iconic symbols of London but for me their illustrations are not what they could represent the theme very well. The graphics of the pictograms is just average in best case but for example the background supplementary image is more of ugly and has very different graphical style which is not too suitable to the symbols and I also think choosing the most simple and comfortable displaying solution to the background of the reel area, namely, make it all white was a mistake because it makes the otherwise not too impressive and attractive symbols even less powerful and whenever I play with this game I always have a feeling that the slot would have deserved a visually much more effective interface and stepping out of the traditional and conventional displaying structure some imaginative and maybe innovative pictorial elements would have made the game more interesting and perhaps more inviting. So I’m not really satisfied with the interface and visual realization of the theme.
And now speaking of what makes the game still unique and very tempting for the players which is the very huge potential what the game offers. My usual bets here and other games are around €1.25 and if I was forced to name just 3 other games where I could experience better top end payouts I think I really would be in a big, big trouble as I can’t name just one where a single 5 of a kind win - which no need Wild or multiplier – could reward me €1500 or recall other product where the Scatter would have the potential to pay me back €1250 for my mentioned stake. With other words, the 30.000 times of line bet awarding quality what the best paying 5 of a kind win provides or the Scatter’s power to hand over 1000 times of total bet prize are really shocking and very respectable at the same time and that’s why I think this slot should be a target game for many players.
Anyway, the ‘€1500’ symbol is the Guard which is also acting as Wild and when it replaces other icons in a winning combination it also double the values of it. The other coveted pictogram is of course the Big Ben which also has not just one but two feature triggering function, namely, the free spin feature and the Big Ben bonus round. The free spins feature is activated if at least 3 of Big Bens appear anywhere on the reels then we’re awarded 10, 15 or 20 free game where all wins are multiplied by x2 and the feature itself can be re-triggered and the Big Ben bonus starts if a Big Ben figure becomes visible on the first and the last reels at the same time then Big Ben starts to chime and the more it does that the more we can pocket at the end of the secondary game. 1 chime means we win x2 of the total bet, 5 chimes gives back 10 times more than the stake was, 10 chimes reward us x20 of total stake while in the very best case when we hear 12 chimes our total won amount is the huge gift 500 times of total stake.
As you can see, not just the high end prize are awesome at this slot but all features and function symbols have very great qualities and the game offers us lot of ways to win big. Even if the game’s average payouts are not so incredible and there’s session when I feel I couldn’t get enough but playing with a game what has the ability to make me very happy anytime during the play session is a really welcomed gambling partner in any day. I wish if the appearance and the interface of the game could be matched by the great attributes of game segment but most of the times we can’t get all of it from a video slot so we must conform to this and respect what we actually receive. Needless to say that the main strength of the game is this unbelievable paying potential and maybe I’m just an opportunist but I really like this slot almost exclusively just because of it so if someone want to play with a game where there’s a possibility – however slam it is – to win remarkable amounts Big Ben can and should be the number one target at a casino where this product is available to play.
