It is summer time and people are traveling away to foreign lands for holidays. There are several online video slot games that are based on the holiday theme. The similarity between these games is such that players often tend to mix them up. But this will not happen with the holiday themed slot game from the leading online casino software provider Top Game. The game is appropriately titled Voyager’s Quest. It does have similarities with other slots of this genre but it is the uniqueness that counts in the end.
There are two types of symbols generally used in holiday themed slot games. One type is popular tourist landmarks and the other is the means of travel used in holidays. Top Game Voyager’s Quest uses both these types of symbols. The higher paying symbols are the tourist landmarks, which are the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Big Ben of London and Eiffel Tower of Paris. The lower paying symbols are air balloon, steam engine, ocean liner, stage coach and car, which cover both early and modern means of travel. What makes these symbols unique is the caricatured way they are crafted. This along with the bright colors and lively background music will put the player in the perfect mood for the holiday. And the operating buttons of the Top Game Voyager’s Quest slot game are depicted as items of baggage all packed up and ready to go.
As is the practice with Top Game online video slots there are three special symbols in Voyager’s Quest. The airplane is the wild symbol and it also offers the highest jackpot line payout of 9,000 coins. When it assists in making a winning combination it flies around a globe. The open suitcase filled with gold coins is the scatter symbol. When this symbol appears at the same time on reels 1 and 5 players are awarded five spree spins. The compass is the bonus symbol.
What sets Top Game Voyager’s Quest apart from the other slot games of this genre is the bonus game on the second screen. The bonus game is triggered when the compass symbol appears simultaneously on reels 2, 3 and 4 of an active payline. The objective of the bonus game is to reach the ship by using the car, train, boat and plane on different legs of the journey before it embarks from the port. There is a maximum of 3,600 points up for grabs in this bonus game.
The bonus game is a visual delight. The first leg of the journey shows a number of roads from the home to the station and the player has to choose one. The car moves along the chosen road and as it reaches the station it discloses the credits awarded. The second leg of the journey shows a number of rail tracks from the station to the water ways. Similarly there are a number of water ways and finally a number of flight paths. Each choice sets off the animated journey and awards bonus credits. There are booby traps on the way. If a player chooses a wrong path on any leg he will crash out and miss the ship, but will keep the bonus points accumulated till then.
