Mr Green’s Jolly Grand Tour of Europe Slot
Mr Green's Old Jolly Tour of Europe Slot is a bit of a mouthful, but it's also an exclusive online slots game that been developed by NetEnt for the Mr Green Casino. This slot has 5 reels, and 25 pay lines. The enigmatic Mr Green – he of the green suit and the matching green bowler hat – has packed his case and is off on a tour around Europe (whether the UK is included in this tour, post Brexit, is a thorny issue), and is hoping you will join him. It's hard to know where's he's going, as no European destinations are mentioned in this game. We're willing to bet that Monte Carlo might just be one of his stops.
The symbols used in this game are a little eclectic. There's a horseshoe, a lamp, a hot air balloon basket and an anchor. We're guessing Mr Green is going by balloon but he's taking a horse with him as backup. Joining these items on the reels are playing card values ten to ace.
You can choose the size of your coin from 0.01 to 0.50, and your 'bet level' from one to ten. As there are twenty-five lines in play, and that number is fixed, your wager-per-spin is always your coin size multiplied by your bet level multiplied by twenty-five. When you're ready to yell "chocks away", hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winnable pay out in this game is for three jacks or tens on a pay line – this will win you twice your coin size. The maximum pay out in normal play is for five 'Grand Tour' symbols – this wins you five hundred coins.
A golden star is the 'multi wild' symbol in this game. It only appears on reels two, three and four and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the free spins symbols. The multi-wild symbol activates three different wild features: Re-spin wilds, expanding wilds or 2x wilds. When a multi-wild symbol appears on a reel the symbol will flip over to activate one of these features:
- Exanding wild – the wild symbol expands to cover the entire reel
- Re-spin wild – the wild remains in position and triggers a re-spin
- 2x wild – if the wild completes a winning combination then the associated jackpot is doubled
If you land three or more free spins symbols anywhere on the reels then you win a number of free spins. Three symbols earn you ten free spins, four symbols earn you twenty and five earn the maximum of thirty. During free spins each wild symbol now flips to reveal two of the three features as listed above. For example, a '2x re-spin' wild doubles any win and awards a free re-spin.
Mr Green is one of our favourite online casinos, and NetEnt are our favourite gambling software provider, so the combination of the two should create a powerful slot. In truth, this game is a little lacking in graphics and sound, but more than makes up for that with cracking game play. Having more than one wild feature is a superb idea, especially during free spins when they are combined to pack twice the punch. You're unlikely to get tired of this slot quickly, and that's the best news possible.
