Orient Express Slot Review

Experience what it was like to travel on the world famous locomotive through 4 European cities in the utmost luxury. Okay well you won’t nearly have the same experience as actually being on the train but one can only dream. Let’s rather say have a taste of what it was like. Nope, not even that will give it any justice. So let’s just say enjoy the depiction of what it may have been like via a wonderfully crafted animated version of the luxury train.


Orient Express is a 5x3 reel, 20 payline video slot powered by Yggdrasilsoftware. Symbols include 4 lower paying symbols in the form of different Card Suits and higher paying symbols being 4 Distinguished Passengers. Special symbols include the regular Orient Express Wild and Free Spins Scatter. There are 4 different modes in the game, Paris, Venice, Belgrade and Istanbul that the train travels through, each with their own features. More detail will be given in the Features section.

The game controls at the bottom of the screen from left to right are: a Plus Icon that expands to the Information button with the Pay Table, Game Settings button, Game History button, Game Rules button and Sound button. Next is the Lines Window, adjustable Coin Value window, Cash Bet window, Max Bet button, Spin button, Autoplay button, Win window and Balance Window.


The features in Orient Express include the regular Orient Express Wild, the Free Spins Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature and the 4 different modes in the game, Paris, Venice, Belgrade and Istanbul that the train travels through each with their own features.

The regular Orient Express Wild substitutes for symbols except for the Free Spins Scatter, in forming a potential winning combination.

Land 3 or more Free Spins Scatters to trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded 7, 14 or 30 free spins for landing 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins Scatters respectively.

The game has 4 different modes, each time you trigger a Free Spins Feature in the mode that you are in, you will move onto the next mode once the feature has completed. In Orient Express, the different modes are represented by the 4 different cities that the Orient Express travels through namely Paris, Venice, Belgrade and Istanbul. Each mode (as previously mentioned) has their own features attributed to them:

In Paris mode you have the advantage of Walking Wilds represented by the Ticket Inspector character symbol. During the base game he will appear on top of random symbols after the reels stop spinning and then provides a free re-spin, moving along towards the left of the reels. The re-spins continue until the Walking Wild reaches the end of the left reel. New Walking Wilds are also possible to land during the re-spins extending the free re-spin play. This symbol is also present during the Paris Mode Free Spins Feature but lands much more frequently.

In Venice Mode a Multiplier Clock ranging between 2x and 5x can appear at random after a winning spin, multiplying the win. The Multiplier Clock is also present in the Venice Mode Free Spins Feature but is permanently above the reels multiplying every win.

In Belgrade Mode a small train travels across the reels at random awarding a Reel Wild on the reel that it stops on. In other words the entire reel becomes a Wild Reel. Up to 3 reels can become a Wild Reel. The Wild Reel is also present in the Belgrade Mode Free Spins Feature but appears after each free spin.

In Istanbul Mode golden post cards fly over the reels, turning 2-12 symbols they randomly land on into Postcard Wilds. The Postcard Wild is also present in the Istanbul Mode Free Spins Feature but appears after each free spin.

Once you have completed all the different Free Spins Feature Modes you are able to select which mode you want to play in when you land the Free Spins Feature again.

All Free Spins Features can be retriggered.

Unique Features

Unfortunately there are no unique features to this slot.


Orient Express has taken slot play on a journey of exuberance and opulence. Although there are numerous features and modes to this slot, it is not complicated at all, pretty self explanatory. The wonderful cartoon-style graphics and design used adds great charm to the gameplay. The RTP is 96.1% with low-medium volatility.

Max Win

The max coin win is 20000


Ironically, you won’t often get heaps and heaps of cash out of this game but it is possible with special thanks to the Free Spin Features, especially in Belgrade mode. Take in all the opulence as you travel through some of the most grandeur cities in the world. If not, you can always apply to be coach crew, unlike me, I would probably be accepted to shovel coal into the boiler and the only Eiffel Tower I would see is the trains chimney towering above me blocking any kind of view.
