Aldo’s Journey Theme/Symbols

The Aldo’s Journey slot looks superb – with cartoon style graphics, you will see the reels on a 5x5 grid. With a pleasant soundtrack playing, you will see 4 locations (Italy, Mongolia, Persia and China) represented in the background.

Journey Wild symbol

The Journey wild symbol (which shows Aldo) appears in all modes – with every spin, this walking wild moves 1 step randomly in 1 of 8 directions. As with the regular wild, it substitutes for all symbols bar the free spin symbol. If the walking wild enters the centre square position (the middle of the reel set), between 3 and 9 regular wilds be spread out on the reels – a multiplier between 2x and 4x is applied to any wins. This is called the Wild Time feature. This feature can apply in the 4 location free spins features.

Free spins features

Aldo’s Journey comes with various free spins features – 3 free spin symbols landing on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the 3 middle ones) will trigger the free spin mode with 7 free spins. Depending on which land area the walking wild is standing, you will then play the corresponding free spins feature. Here are the 5 options:

  • Italy Free Spins feature – starting with a 2x multiplier, it increases by 1 with each free spin. This means the multiplier can reach 9x.
  • Mongolia Free Spins feature – after every free spin, 1 regular symbol is removed from the reels. This gives you more possibilities to form wins with higher value symbols. If there are only 2 symbols left, the multiplier increases by 1.
  • Persia Free Spins feature – 1 sticky wild symbol is added to the reels with every free spin which remains in place for the duration of the feature.
  • China Free Spins feature – the Journey/walking wild creates a line of wild symbols on every free spin. You will begin with a 2x multiplier.
  • Journey Free Spins feature – this is played when the walking wild is on the centre square of the reel set. All extras from Italy, Mongolia, Persia and China are active meaning any 1 of them could be played. You will begin with a 2x multiplier. If the walking wild lands on the centre square position during the feature, you will get an additional 3 free spins.

Aldo’s Journey slot overview

Visually superb, the Aldo’s Journey slot is entertaining and fun. It’s all about the Journey wild symbol which can add more wilds and multipliers up to 4x on each base game spin – it also applies in the free spins features for even bigger payouts. I like the Italy Free Spins feature as the increasing multiplier up to 9x can result in huge payouts. Medium to high variance, you can win 4,205 times your stake on each free spin. The RTP% is good at 96.5% too.

Overall, Aldo’s Journey is unique and has plenty of bonus features to keep you coming back. I like the fact the Journey wild can give you more wilds and multipliers in the base game meaning that all big wins don’t come in the free spins features. All that’s left is that you join Aldo as he searches for riches around the world. If you like slots that take you to different locations, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Orient Express is a good slot to play.
