An Online Pokie That Takes You Across Time

December 9, 2017


Since H.G. Wells wrote The Time Machine the interest in time travel has only risen. So much so that astrophysicists have worked out the mathematical possibilities of travelling to different eras. Online pokie developers are quick to catch on to any theme that attracts attention. At Australian online casinos like Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino you can play on a pokie titled A Switch in Time. It is from the portfolio of Rival Gaming. A Switch in Time is played over three different reel sets each representing a different era. They are connected by a time machine, which is a common symbol for all three reel sets.

The online pokie loads in the 19th century. The symbols on the reels are relics from that period. They include pocket watch, parchment, gas lamp, traveller's case, ornate table clock and sherry decanters. The wild symbol is the hour glass and the free spins are triggered by the girl in period costume. When you land three time machine symbols on the reels the bonus round is activated. You are in control of the time machine. By operating the buttons in the control panel you collect bonus credits. After the bonus game is over the time machine will take you way back into the past.

The second reel set represents the prehistoric era. The symbols on the reels include the ferocious beasts that roamed the earth like mastodon, sabre tooth tiger and the dinosaur Tyrannosaurus Rex. The other thematic symbols are rock painting, prehistoric man, stone tools and wheel. The fire is an expanding wild symbol. The prehistoric girl is a scatter symbol and triggers the free spins. Visually, this reel set is the best because of some great win animations. The Tyrannosaurus Rex exhibits his majesty in full screen win animations. The time machine again triggers the bonus game. You battle the T-Rex and win bonus credits. After the bonus game the time machine takes you to the future.

The future zone is out of a sci-fi movie. The symbols on the reels are aliens, alien city, radar panel and spaceship. A purple gas cloud is the wild symbol. The bonus game in this time zone is a cyber robot war. In all three eras the scoring opportunity lies in the free spins round, which is structured similarly. You can win up to 78 free spins with up to 9x multiplier.
