Italy (North-West quarter of the grid): Italian free laps start with a x2 multiplier and increase by x1 for each lap.
Mongolia (North-East quarter of the grid): the same set of symbols is removed from the reels at each turn during the Mongolian free spins. When only a set of 2 different symbols remains, a x1 multiplier is added.
Persia (South-West quarter of the grid): a sticky WILD appears on a roll every turn during Persian free spins.
China (South-East quarter of the grid): Chinese free laps start with a x2 multiplier and the WILD traveller shows WILD symbols all along the line where he is present.
Journey (in the central box): the journey free laps start with a x2 multiplier and 3 additional free laps are granted. Aldo's position determines which free spins mode is activated.
Another feature, the Wild Time: when the WILD traveller lands on the central box, 3 to 9 WILDs are randomly placed on the grid accompanied by a multiplier x2 to x4. This feature is also present during the free spins bonus function with a current multiplier increased by +1, +2 or +3 and 3 additional freespins in the journey mode.
Our opinion about Aldo's Journey
With its constant animation and travelling character, the Aldo's Journey video slot stands out from many other slot machines. The supplier Yggdrasil once again proves its creativity with this machine with its colourful graphics and interesting historical theme. Don't expect to make a lot of money in the basic game, as the different symbols are of little value. Nevertheless, the 5 free spins modes promise some thrills, as does the Wild Time bonus. So pack your bags and go on a trip with Aldo now!
