On November the 21st of 2019, the new wonder of the provider Yggdrasil was released: Aldo’s Journey™! A journey that will take us to 4 cities Italy, Mongolia, Persia and China with its free spins and The Wild Time feature that will trigger victories that will offer us winnings to galore! Aldo’s Journey™, a virtual slot machine Yggdrasil that will make us twirl on the reels with this character so friendly who wants to show us the way to wealth!
Little Aldo is an elf like no other. It comes from a tiny kingdom that lies near Italy. He has a special mission: He must take Princess Marame on a journey before she turns 18, otherwise she will not be able to rule. The king has no confidence in anyone but him because there is a conspiracy against him: someone wants to prevent the princess from travelling so that she cannot ascend the throne.
Everyone knew who he was: the wicked and envious cousin Leopold. He was convinced that it was he who should rule that a woman could not do it so well. But that was without Aldo who faithful to his king was ready to accomplish his mission at the risk of his life. Especially because the princess didn’t have a sense of direction, she was lost all the time and she didn’t listen to anyone.
The elf, very happy for his mission, kept hopping (as in the virtual slot Aldo’s Journey™). The big day has arrived but the only ones who know about it are our two travelers and the king. As the princess spent weeks and weeks without leaving her room to study books, it wouldn’t be strange. They leave at night and disguised for not being recognized.
Their adventure-filled journey will take them to Italy, Mongolia, Persia and China (features of Aldo’s Journey™) where the princess will learn martial arts. When she returns to the castle, she will be unrecognizable but above all she will have acquired all the necessary bases of other cultures to be able to govern her kingdom properly!
Features of Aldo’s Journey™:
Aldo’s Journey™ is a random 5×5 reels slot video with 65 paylines that will pay from left to right. The game has 8 regular symbols that will win if three or more are aligned on a sequence of a winning line starting with the most left position.
The game’s features have regular wilds that substitute all the regular symbols into free spin symbols that will appear only in the basic game and the wild Aldo Journey that will appear in all modes. Aldo moves one position per reel in one of the 8 directions per turn. Aldo works like a wild and can substitute any regular symbol. When the player changes the value of the aldo coin will have to return to his original position. When Aldo positions itself in the middle of the grid, free spins will reward 3 to 9 random wilds on the reels and add 1, 2 or 3 to the multiplier counter. For the full session of free spins, but this will not be applicable to journey free spins.
Free spin symbols only will land on reels 2, 3 and 4. If 3 symbols free spins, as much as possible, will trigger free spins mode. The Aldo’s Journey™ random slot video is divided into 4 regions represented by rectangles of different colors on the reels and a central square. Depending on which position Aldo will occupy when the free spins are triggered it is this region that will be rewarded. All free spins will be played on the same level of bet and the same lines as the game that triggered them.
Italy’s free spins will be in the rectangle at the top left. In this free spin mode the winning multiplier will start at x2 and increase with each turn of 1. Mongolia free spins are located in the rectangle at the top right. At the end of each free spin a regular symbol is removed from the reels for the rest of the free spins.
If there are only 2 symbols left on the reels, the player will receive a 1x multiplier instead. Persia free spins are located at the bottom left on the reels. At each turn Aldo throws a sticky wild that will remain in a random position for the rest of the free spins. The wild that has been sent will not be able to land on a wild already sent.
China’s free spins will be at the bottom and right. Aldo will create a line of 1 to 5 wilds and he is also included in 1 of the 8 directions in each round. This line always starts from Aldo himself and that ends on the edge of the slot (if Aldo is in that area of the slot machine the line he will create will be in a direction that can reward at least one extra wild.
This mode will start with an x2 multiplier. The journey free spins will be in the center square. This free spin mode uses the functionality of the region where Aldo is located, and if Aldo is in the center square then 3 additional free spins will be added.
Opinion about Aldo’s Journey™:
The latest novelty from the Swedish giant Yggdrasil has just been released: Aldo’s Journey™ a different virtual slot machine is coming to appear. Aldo as a very friendly character will make us discover 4 countries (Italy, Mongolia, Persia and China) and that will give their name to free spins with different features. It changes from a traditional slot machine with this little guy who jumps into all positions to offer us winning combinations.
The video slot is separated into 4 rectangles and depending on where Aldo will fall, it’s one of four features that will be triggered. These are all free spins but each different. In addition, when the free spins are triggered a bubble explains the feature triggered and when it ends Aldo makes us a little dance to announce the winnings: it’s super fun!
The four parts of the screen behind the reels represent the 4 countries Italy, Mongolia, Persia and China with completely typical landscapes, it’s very well done! The player might think that the random slot machine Aldo’s Journey™ is a bit monotonous with its symbols but not at all because little Aldo is there to set the mood, he jumps, he makes signs, he is very friendly!
As far as features are concerned, the player can find a bit of everything from wild substitutions, free spins, short payout multipliers are a pretty complete game of money. Are return to the player is 96.1% which is a little below average. On the other hand, you don’t have to wait for ages to see the features trigger, because the volatility is quite high.
Bets will range from 0.002 to £2, which will give us bets between 0.10 and £100. A range of bets that will be wide enough to target as many people as possible and that’s well thought out. It is not only for the average player or beginner who is not sure how to cope but also for the one who likes to risk a little more to win more substantial prizes. Aldo’s Journey™’s probably going to be a hit: congratulations Yggdrasil!
