Available on Betfair’s ever popular Playtech powered Download casino, Around The World is a popular favourite with casino game fans, an easy to play game that the beginner will pick up in seconds it offers both the level of stake and the potential winnings to suit any pocket.
Play is centred on a board with paths leading to some of the worlds’ favourite tourist destinations. The game starts in the bottom left with a train and a safe and players find themselves facing the journey to the first of their destinations, Paris. The giant game-play wheel features the numbers 1-49 and spins randomly to provide the player with their starting number. The game is then in the players hands based on this initial number they must choose higher or lower to progress. The same number will never come up twice and as well as just the higher/ lower options players are treated to some special features.
Each level consists of seven steps and by advancing higher/lower to the end of the level players will multiply their initial stake, Reaching Paris gives 2.5x initial bet, pushing on to New York offers 3x the Paris total, the Great Wall of China 3.5x again and finally pushing on to London will offer 4x. This means that playing right through to the last level will turn an initial £1 stake into £105 – a pretty fantastic return.
Each level offers a player two ‘strikes’. Get the higher lower bet wrong once and you’re able to continue, twice and unfortunately that’s game over. If you’ve used you’re first strike to reach a destination then your winnings won’t multiply up and you’ll receive back whatever you took into that stage of the game. Each time you reach a destination you have the option to cash out or carry on playing and strikes are reset at the beginning of each new level.
The final three slots on the wheel are RS – which will remove a strike previously used, AS – which automatically advances players a step and AL – advances players all the way to the next destination. Staking options range from 10p to £100 per play so there really is something in it for everyone. You can also check out the Betfair Arcade where you’ll find a slot based on the same globetrotting theme.
