Gulliver’s Travels Theme
The theme of this online slot game is quite obviously the story Gulliver’s Travels. In this story a sailor is shipwrecked on an island populated by tiny people. They have no idea what this giant in their midst is, and take him prisoner. The symbols, background and graphics in Gulliver’s Travels all are based on this story line, and such the reels are set against a blue bay in an island full of sailing ships.
The graphics are quite good, with lots of attention to little detail such as the rigging around the reels and the information at the bottom of the reels. All player info is set out simply at the bottom of the reels in an easy to read format. The paytable can be found on a different screen to make space for all the graphics.
Gulliver’s Travels Reel Symbols
The base symbols in Gulliver’s Travels are taken from the deck of playing cards. These range from 10 through to Ace, and are designed to look like they are made of wooden scaffolding, which is what the little people used to tie Gulliver up. They are cleverly done and you can see the time that went into them. The rest of the symbols are thematic, and you can find Gulliver, a princess, the tiny peoples Kingdom, books and a barrel.
The special symbols are the scatter and the wild. The wild symbol is the rather involved picture of Gulliver towing tiny ships. This symbol can appear anywhere on the reels and will take the place of all standard game icons; this excludes of course the scatter symbol. The scatter symbol is the tiny ships themselves and appears on the first, third and fifth reel. This symbol launches a bonus round where the player uncovers free spins hidden in little ships. You can get up to 20 free spins multiplied by 2.
Gulliver’s Travels Bonus Features
There are two main bonus features in Gulliver’s Travels. The first is a passive feature called Flip Out. In this feature each time a set of symbols for a winning line, the winning symbols will flip over. When these symbols flip over they reveal new symbols, which may form more wins. Should these new symbols also be winning ones, they too will flip, creating another chance to win. This carries on until there are no more winning combinations.
The second and biggest bonus feature of Gulliver’s Travels is Mega Line Mode. This is triggered by the Mega Line symbol found on the first or fifth reel. One Mega Line symbol will start a round of respins, spinning the reels until you hit any of the 40 paylines. If you find another mega lines symbol during this respin, you trigger the 243 ways to win feature. During this feature the Mega Lines symbol also becomes wild.
