Free Spins – There are 5 different Free Spins Features for you to trigger, with 7 spins awarded in each of them. This will be determined by Aldo’s position on the reels when the Free Spins are triggered:
Italy Free Spins – With the Italy Free Spins you start with a x2 multiplier and with each spin that will increase by 1.

Journey Free Spins – The Journey Free Spins begins with a x2 multiplier and depending on where Aldo is, that Free Spins mode is activated with each spin.
Aldo’s Journey is a typically bright and flamboyant Yggdrasil slot. It looks and it sounds like a computer game and whilst you will find more complex, more immersive Yggdrasil slots out there it is one of those games that makes you feel as if something could happen on each and every spin. You get 5 different Free Spins features, 2 different Wilds and the potential for big wins on every spin thanks to the Wild Time feature. The house edge is OK, but could do with a little reduction before we could consider this a contender for one of the best slots of 2019.
