Aldo, a travelling merchant, is about to start his conquest of Italy, China, Persia and Mongolia. On his travels, he will try to connect these four countries, but will also try to make merchant contracts that will make him extremely rich. Join his crew and you will get a slice of the money, up to 3,000x the bet per spin. Aldo’s Journey is a 5-reel video slot that offers 65 paylines and comes from Yggdrasil’s creative kitchen.
With bright and colourful visuals, the 2019 release will more seem like an animated video for children than a video slot, but you will soon realize that you need to be an experienced tradesman if you want to succeed on this voyage across the globe. Depending on the current country you are in, you will get freebies with all sorts of extras.
Play Aldo’s Journey
The reels are set on a scroll that offers 4 different maps and these maps represent Italy, Mongolia, China and Persia. Aldo will be there to keep you company, because he acts as a Journey Wild that substitutes for all symbols and will roam the reels on every spin. Regular Wilds will also appear on the screen. Plenty of Gemstones will appear as well, acting as high-value icons, while card suits represent low-paying ones. The Compass is the Scatter that triggers freebies.
How to Play
The scroll with maps is the 5x5 reel grid where the symbols land. Aldo will be present on each spin and every time he will occupy a different position. The 2019 release offers 65 paylines and pays left to right, beginning from the far-left reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Gamers need 50 coins for each spin. Since the coin value can be altered, you can wager from $0.10 to $100 per spin.
Strategy & Tips
Once Aldo appears on the central spot of the reel grid, the Wild Time feature starts. Players get 3 to 9 Wilds on random positions on the reels and a win multiplier going from 2x to 4x.
Get three Compass Scatters on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature. Depending on which map Aldo is occupying in the moment you triggered freebies, you get different extras during the feature.
In Italy, the win multiplier starts at 2x and goes up 1x for every successive spin. Mongolia will remove all instances of one symbol each spin. Persia offers 1 Sticky Wild on each freebie. China secures a 2x win multiplier. Journey Wild, represented by Aldo, will create Wild Lines during freebies.
If Aldo is on the central position on the reel grid when you trigger freebies, the Journey Free Spins start and you get extras from all 4 countries.
If you want to become a successful traveling merchant as Aldo, you do not have to leave the comforts of your homes, or you can be far from the map, because the Yggdrasil product can be played across all devices, desktop and mobile.
