Big Ben offers traditional English fare. The main symbols are the guard in bearskin caps and Big Ben. In the win animations you see the guards marching and get a 360 degree view of Big Ben. You can actually hear the Big Ben Chime in one of the bonus games. The other symbols are jewelled crown of the monarch, the Union Jack, the double decker London bus, the red telephone kiosk, the gas light and the tavern sign.

Important Symbols and Combinations
The guard is the wild symbol and it doubles the payout when substituting in winning combinations. Big Ben is the scatter symbol. It plays an important role in the bonus game and the free spins. The guard, Big Ben, the crown and the Union Jack start paying from two symbols, instead of the usual three.
Big Ben has the usual configuration of five reels and three rows of symbols. You are permitted to activate any number of paylines up to the maximum of 25. But it cannot be overstated that slot games should be played with all paylines enabled. The line bet can be varied from 0.02 to 4.00. With all paylines enabled, the maximum bet per spin works out to 100.00 credits.
If you are the type of player that finds it cumbersome to activate the reels after every spin, then you can use the Auto Play feature that gives you up to 500 spins without manual intervention. You can mute the background audio or keep it enabled. The payout table and the game rules can be accessed from the Info button. Do look at it before you start wagering.
There is an interesting Big Ben bonus feature that gets triggered when the Big Ben symbol appears simultaneously anywhere on reels 1 and 5. Your payout is determined by the time announced by the famous chimes of the clock. One chime doubles your stake and 12 chimes multiply it 500 times.
The gamble game can be optionally activated after any spin in which there is a payout. You can double your win if you guess the colour of the next card. Or you can quadruple your win if you guess the suit of the next card. But if you make a wrong guess you will lose your original payout.
The slot game has a simple free spins round. Three, four or five Big Ben symbols scattered anywhere on the reels award 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. All payouts during the free spins are doubled. The free spins are played at the same number of paylines and same bet as the triggering spin. If you get three or more Big Ben symbols during the free spins then the feature will retrigger.
Top and Secondary Prizes
The attraction of Big Ben is the high payouts at the upper end. The top line payout of 30,000 coins is awarded when five guard symbols appear in an enabled payline. The top scatter payout is 1000 coins for five Big Ben symbols. Understandably, the next highest line payouts of 800 coins awarded by the crown and the Union Jack are somewhat lower.
