Using the Metro, Subway or Tube (depending on where you live) to get around the city can be both heaven or hell. Some trips are as smooth as silk and will get you from one place to another in no time. Other times the train is late, it’s jam-packed with hairy, sweaty people courtesy of a no-existing AC making it hotter than the hinges on the gates of hell – what a nightmare!
Next Stop – Success
Red Tiger recently released a new slot on the subject, called London Tube. Because of the different theme, I was curious to see how it works and if Red Tiger could create a fun game out of it. If you have ever had to commute via underground transportation, I’m sure you can relate to what you’re about to see.
The train just pulled up to the station so we might as well get on it, right?
Welcome to the Station
With the London Tube sign sprayed onto the wall, it sure looks like it could be any station I’ve ever seen and immediately takes me back. The game also has symbols that represent a lot of the characters you’ll run into on the trains.
You’ll find the teen stuck on his phone, people listening to music a.k.a. doing their best to prevent people from approaching them (a classic traveling trick), the elderly lady reading the latest novel and of course security.
Paylines: 1,024 ways
Next Train Arrival
Red Tiger has found a clever way of connecting a special feature with the actual signage in a subway station. Known as the Train Arrival feature, you will see a count in the top right corner, letting you know when the next train is coming.
Look Out For Golden Frames
As you spin along, you will see The Tube symbol leaving golden frames around certain positions. The train will arrive every 10 spins, the doors will open and will award one of the following prizes on each of the golden frames left on your screen:
- Ways Multiplier
- Cash Prize
Nice One, Red Tiger
I really like this feature and it’s a smart move by Red Tiger. Because I knew the next train was coming every 10 spins, that alone kept me spinning and spinning. I almost didn’t care much about the spins in between.
Get Your Free Spins Here
No matter how much fun I thought the Train Arrival feature was, I would be disappointed if that was the only feature. Thankfully there are Free Spins as well and what better way to present them than by a charging train scatter.
Move From Station to Station
Three scatters will do the trick and get you on the Free Spin train towards success. While in Free Spin mode, every time a scatter shows up, it will move you to the next station and you can follow your progress above the reels.
Extra Prizes Along the Way
Every 3rd station is a bonus and this is where you can pick up extra golden frames for Free Spins, Bonus Spins and/or Win Multipliers!
I’m Ready to Commute
With all the slots and themes out there, it’s super easy to get tired of the same ones being reused over and over again. This is why the London Tube feels like a breath of fresh air!
It gives you a new look, interesting features that will keep your attention on the spin button and leave you wanting more. I’m sure the memories of having spent years riding the underground trains plays a part in me liking the game but if you share the same experience, you’ll understand why.
No, it’s not the best game I’ve ever played but it did put a smile on my face, which not a lot of games do.
