When someone develops a penchant for jetting off to explore far off lands, it’s often said that they have got the travel bug. As it happens, all of the travellers in this slot game are travel bugs…literal travel bugs. It’s an extremely silly spin on the saying and it’s great fun to watch the animations come to life.

The overall layout of Travel Bug consists of five reels and three rows in total, while 20 pay lines are also present for you to bet on. You can change your in-play bet by selecting a coin value of between 1p and 25p and bringing up to 10 of those coins into play. This means that a maximum bet of £50 per spin is possible.

Rival Gaming has made sure that the slot includes some wonderful graphics as well, with vibrant colours shining through and all the symbols being crisp and clear. Speaking of the symbols, these include a Parisian caterpillar, a sunbathing slug, a London-bound rocker beetle, and a spider on a tropical vacation. These join other symbols, including the train and the aeroplane as modes of transport.

Special Features

Passport

Now, what is it that we must not forget before we leave for the airport? A passport, of course! We wouldn’t get far without one. The passport that you see on the reels in Travel Bug will work as the slot’s bonus round trigger.

When three or more of that symbol come into view in any location then the bonus round begins. This is known as the Travel the World feature, so just follow the instructions on the screen in order to go on your own journey around the globe and hopefully come back with some extra cash in your pocket.

Wild Ladybird

While there are a variety of bugs on the reels of this slot, it is the ladybird that will operate as its wild symbol. This means that it can appear in any position and will substitute for all the other standard symbols in the game. The only icons that it won’t replace are the scatters, but it has the possibility of helping out a great deal with forming wins.

If you manage to form a win out of five wild icons, then you will see your wager multiplied by a total of 5,000x over.

Stranded Mosquito

There’s nothing worse than having to wait around in the airport because your plane has been delayed…or even worse, cancelled. Unfortunately, it seems as though the mosquito has been caught in such a situation. He works as the slot’s free spins scatter symbol, and this means that he has the ability to activate the free spins round. This is done whenever three or more of the mosquito scatter show up anywhere.

The feature is a Can’t Lose round, which means that all of the 10 spins will pay out at least one win. The first reel will always be completely wild throughout, while two-icon pay-outs will also come into effect for the duration.
