Powered by Odobo, Big Time Adventure is a 5 reel, 25 payline time-travel themed slot from up and coming Estonian developer Foxium. Join intrepid young inventor Artur as he moves through history from the Ice Age through to the First World War. Superbly designed, it comes with a free spins feature with stakes ranging from between 25p and £250 per spin.
Set in Edwardian era London, the reels in Big Time Journey have the feel of an inventor’s workshop. Look out for industrial style letters from A to 10 as well as a series of gemstone symbols. The richest paying standard symbol is the red circle gem which offers payouts of 1,500 times your line bet if you land 5 in a payline.
These symbols are joined by a standard wild that substitutes for everything else apart from the scatter – 5 wilds in a line will get you 3,000 times your line bet.
The Big Time Journey logo is the scatter – land 3 of them anywhere on the reels for 8 free spins. Four will get you 15 free spins with a whopping 30 free spins on offer if you’re lucky to see 5 scatters sitting on the reels. It’s possible to re-trigger extra free spins if the scatters land during the feature.
You’ll notice Artur the inventor perched to the left hand side of the reels – when you trigger the free spins feature, you get to spin a wheel. Depending on where it lands, it will transport Artur to a different period of history. The backdrop behind the reels will change to show the Jurassic period, the medieval age, the ice age, the Victorian age or the First World War. The spins don’t change but you do get a nice change in visuals.
There are also plenty of achievements to unlock for completing particular tasks. Again, they won’t transform the payouts but add a little variety and interactivity to the game.
The imagery in Big Time Journey is superb, more akin to a video game than a standard slot. Likewise, the fantastical soundtrack. The features don’t quite match those high visual standards. The variance here is low so it’s a good choice for players with a limited bankroll.
Despite the low volatility, Big Time Journey remains a very playable slot though and offers plenty in the entertainment stakes. We hope to see more from Odobo/Foxium in the future. If you like slots that take you to another era, there are plenty of Ancient Egyptian-themed offerings with Novomatic’s Pharaoh’s Ring being superb. Odobo also offer you Extinction which takes you back to a Jurassic era.
