Celebrate all things retro London, as this Big Ben mobile slot will make you a true anglophile by the end of your spins.
Buckingham Palace guards, crown jewels, the union jack, red buses and phone boxes, old taverns… this is London as viewed by a tourist guide.
Yet, that of itself is no bad thing. Sure, Londoners will scoff at the cliches of these incredibly patriotic reels, but that’s not to say that it doesn’t have a certain charm.
It is certainly better looking than the Red Baron slot machine, which tried to do create a retro WW1 theme with less success.
With sticking to the basics, this Big Ben game looks only a little dated – like something you might get from a postcard sent by your aunt visiting 1960s London. Still kinda cool, if not particularly modern.
The only real symbol you’ll be continuously looking for is Big Ben himself, in all his gilded glory.
This scatter triggers 2 bonus games, each with their own merit, and neither can be dependent to show up that often. We would recommend budgetting for a good 200 spins if you want to last whilst playing this Aristocrat slot game.
The free spins will no doubt attract most players, and you’ll mostly get 15 free spins on 3 scatters, and all your wins will be doubled. Then you are talking about getting anything from 20x to 30x your bet on average.
But 5 scatters is the equivalent of getting a jackpot – not only will you win 1,000 times your bet, but also 25 free spins with a 2x multiplier. We haven’t experienced it, but knowing it’s there brings a soft glow to our mobile slot players hearts.
What we have experienced more often is the big ben chime feature. You need to get a scatter on reel 1 and 5, and Big Ben will chime sweet music to your ears.
They might seem like just bell tower dongs, but get 12 and you’ll win 500 times your bet- when it happened to us it took a while for our ears and our eyes to catch up with what happened.
That said, mostly you’ll get about 6 or 7, giving you about 12 times or 14 times your bet, and you’ll walk away satisfied to spin another day.
This Big Ben video slot won’t give you life-changing wins as you might find in Lucky 88, for example.
But it’s a friendly machine that keeps you spinning, all in the hope of catching one hell of a multiplier on a 5 of a kind in the free spins, or even those 12 golden chimes by the master clock.
It’s not the prettiest theme in the world, but is charming none-the-less.

Wilds: The guard is wild and replaces all other symbols except scatter. It also comes with a 2x multiplier as standard.
Scatters and Free Spins: Big Ben is the scatter symbol. Find 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels to trigger 15, 20, or 25 free spins.
All wins during the free spins are doubled, and if the wild is used, is quadrupled. You can re-trigger the free spins, but it's no easy feat.
More likely, you'll trigger the Big Ben feature.
Scatters and the Big Ben Feature: If the Big Ben scatter appears anywhere on reels 1 and 5, at the same time, you win instant cash.
How much depends how many times Bib Ben chimes. So it's basically random.
It varies from 1 chime giving you 2x your bet, to 7 chimes giving you 14x, and 12 chimes the awesome 500x your bet.
This bonus feature can trigger the free spins (if there's also a third scatter on the reels), meaning it will play before the bonus games, or can be triggered within the free spins themselves.
The Big Ben mobile slot tries to bring an oldy worldy London feel to your reels, and overall, succeeds.
With 2 simple, but effective, bonus features, it keeps you spinning as you hope to catch a big win in one of it's two frequent bonus features.
Once you've tried your luck in London, and liked your stay, then we think you'll equally love the Double Happiness slot game which keeps things just as simple, but moves to the far east.
