Obviously, most of us love travel. Getting out into the world and experiencing different sights, sounds, tastes, and smells is bliss for many of us. That said, it’s not all heavenly. Travel can involve loads of waiting around. Whether it’s in airports, on the train, or on a packed bus – sometimes even us travellers need a distraction.
Slots can provide just that distraction and for those of us that love to travel, there are loads of brilliant games with travel-type themes from the gambling industry’s most recognisable names. Our top five will surely help satisfy that urge for a punt when spreading your wings and taking off to pastures new.
Of course, there are loads of other slots out there too. Check out CasinosCA’s library of free slots to try some before you start actually betting.
What better way to pass some time on the road than by questing into the tombs of ancient Egypt? Although there are many slots themed on Egyptian kings and the like (treasure is a recurring idea in slots), this title by Pragmatic Play is one of our favourites.
Mysterious and gripping music draws players in to Egyptian Fortunes, whilst simplistic but stylish reel icons won’t be too demanding on your phone or tablet. Battery and roaming data will thank you for this!
Egyptian Fortunes has up to 20 pay lines, and a maximum win per line of 50x the total bet. With a 96.5 percent return to player rating, it can also be one of the more lucrative slots around.
The highlight of the game is certainly the Energy Spins special feature. In addition to the random Free Spins stage, Energy Spins give players additional chances to win big without denting their bankroll!
Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild
Jungle Spirit by NetEnt is another title that’s perfect for those with a perpetual case of wanderlust. As the title suggests, this one’s set in the jungle. If majestic beasts are your thing, you’ll probably love this five-reel, three-row slot.
During the game, the symbol expansion feature can literally make the reels come to life. If a symbol marked with butterflies forms a winning combination, it suddenly expands to fill the whole reel. Not only does this give the player a full glimpse of the mighty beast on the symbol but additional winning combinations created also pay out.
The Free Spins mode is another big highlight of the Jungle Spirit slot machine. Players must first select one of the creatures. This will form the theme of the free spins mode and also denote the number of spins they receive.
Like Egyptian Fortunes, this one is another treat for the ears as well as the eyes. A distinctly jungle-flavoured, yet ominous track plays as you try to spin in winning combinations on the vibrant game board.
In terms of actual gameplay, Jungle Spirit features a “1,024 ways to win” pay out structure. Rather than matching symbols along a single win line, three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels will result in payment.
G’day, mates! If you’re looking for a slot, or as the locals say “pokie”, to play on a trip down under, Kanga Cash by WagerLogic could be just what the doctor ordered. The slot is set right in the Aussie outback and, naturally, there are some beautiful beasties to look at.
Adorning the five reels and three rows of Kanga Cash are dingoes, vultures, and some fearsome looking lizard creature. A beautiful representation of a kangaroo striding past the sunset is the game’s “scatter” symbol. Meanwhile, a more intense mugshot of Australia’s most famous creature is the “wild” symbol.
The highlight of Kanga Cash is, of course, the Kanga Cash Feature. Although a little lengthy to explain in full here, it usually results in large wins. As too does the secondary “spin and hold” feature.
Like other selections on this list, Kanga Cash might not be the showiest or flashiest. It is very low demand on phone resources though. If you’re really spreading your wings and travelling far, both roaming data and battery will likely become increasingly valuable.
Ecuador Gold is an innovative modern slot machine from a relative newcomer to the online casino industry. With strong visuals, gameplay, and music throughout, Elk Studios, out of Sweden, proves it’s easily capable of designing games to rival giants like Playtech or Microgaming.
With four rows and six reels, the game features 4,096 different ways to win. As on Jungle Spirit, the slot pays when players match symbols anywhere on adjacent reels. They don’t need to be on win lines per se!
The game’s symbols are tastefully designed after the kind of artwork you’d see in an ancient South American temple. What’s more, these higher value symbols can appear in various square blocks. The smallest is just one single symbol and the largest is a massive 4 x 4 symbols. Understandably, this makes for some mammoth wins!
The game is also loaded with exciting special features. These include the “ghosting wild” that can move around reels, leaving “wild” symbols behind, the avalanche extra win feature, and a free spins mode. During this latter feature, the reels expand, eventually creating an insane 262,144 ways to win.
Granted, this game is going to be much heavier on your phone resources than others. It’s certainly the most modern title on this list. Perhaps you’d better save this for the hostel Wi-Fi and charger terminal!
As you can tell, Elk Studios really impressed us with their modern take on the slot machine. The designers make their second appearance on our list of travel slots with Route 777, a game dedicated to the great American road trip.
The slot itself has a real vintage Americana real to it. From its heavily “stylised gas station on the open desert road” backdrop to its nod to the beginnings of casino culture with vintage reel symbols, the game actually feels like a modernised version of the kind you’d slip a quarter in whilst the gas station attendant “fills her up”.
In terms of a soundtrack, you can expect rocking guitars, endless open road, and the occasional roar of an engine. It’s all pretty cool and would make the ideal companion game for a trip across the US. You’d probably need a VPN for that though.
As to notable additions, the Overtake Respins are a creative take on a tried and tested bonus feature. Being relevant to the driving theme is a nice touch too. There’s also the Route 777 Bonus Game, a Wheel of Fortune-style game that can award players with massive instant prizes! Depending on the bet size, the largest jackpot could be truly life changing!
