Gulliver’s Travel is a video slot machine developed jointly by Chartwell and Amaya Gaming. Those of you who have already read the original version of Gulliver’s Travels, the satirical publication by Jonathan Swift which was published in 1721, will certainly have substantial expectations concerning this game. It must be said that the travels of Lemuel Gulliver, a ship’s surgeon who found himself shipwrecked on an island and ended up experiencing numerous astonishing and unbelievable encounters, were narrated in a book which initiated the period of the British Enlightenment, long before Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe. Although Gulliver’s Travel remains sufficiently faithful to the original tale and brings the main character together with the famous Lilliputians, Chartwell’s video slot machine however does lack the same depth and substance. And its generous jackpot is insufficient for us to give it a good score.
Gulliver’s Travel therefore attempts to somehow render homage to Jonathan Swift and his world famous novel. From a graphical standpoint, it is a rather successful attempt: Gulliver’s Travel certainly reminds us of the slot machines developed by Playtech, but the rotation system is efficient in spite of everything. The symbols are beautiful and you will notice that Chartwell’s artists are still capable of doing a good job. However, there are not enough of them and it is unclear as to why the editors insisted on the presence of poker symbols which are totally out of place here. The ever present and redundant 10, J, Q, K, A are fully in evidence and served to detract from our pleasure when we played. Another issue: the background setting is certainly nice but does not look inviting enough for travelling. As far as we know, Gulliver did not spend his entire life in his home town of Bristol! The only consolation? The presence of the Lilliputians and their convincing representation. With their 15 centimetres, they will make you smile.
Gulliver’s Travel is satisfactory in terms of its accessibility from a budgetary standpoint . Chartwell provides numerous limits for adjustable bets through its slot machine, which makes it very profitable, all things considered. The minimal authorised amount per payline is only $/£ 0.02 while the maximum amount is $/£ 200 – yes, it’s starting to get expensive, except for high rollers, that is!
Bonuses and rewards
On the bonus plan, there is nothing to mention. Gulliver's Travel does the job. A Wild symbol, bearing the Mega Spins brand can appear on reels 1 and 5 and can launch the associated function: indeed, as soon as the Mega Spins mode is unlocked, new payment lines will appear. Thus, Gulliver's Travel can contain up to 243 payment lines! That is probably the best way to make a profit! In addition to a scatter symbol that will offer free rounds and multipliers to users, we are pleased with the Flip Out option that will transform the already winning combinations randomly to extend the player's winnings! In the end, without a slightly doubtful artistic direction, Gulliver's Travel could have been a completely suitable game. Perhaps Chartwell and Amaya will do better next time!
