Ever since Wells wrote The Time Machine the fascination for travelling to different time zones has only increased. So much so, astrophysicists have been devising theoretical models of how this could be achieved. But players at Australian online casinos would be more interested in time travel themed online pokies.
Rival Gaming powers online casinos like Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino. If offers one of the best time travel themed pokies appropriately titled A Switch in Time. The first highlight of this online pokie is that it is played on three different sets of reels representing different time periods. You start in the 19th century Victorian era with symbols like pocket watch, parchment, gas lamp and sherry decanters. The wild symbol is the hour glass and the Victorian girl activates the free spins. The time machine symbols activate a bonus game after which players are taken to the prehistoric era. The symbols here are mastodon, sabre tooth tiger, T-Rex and prehistoric man. The fire is an expanding wild symbol. The girl, now in a prehistoric avatar, triggers the free spins. The time machine again triggers the bonus game which is based on a battle with the T-Rex. It then takes you to the future where you encounter aliens, alien city, radar panel and spaceship. A gas cloud is the wild symbol. The bonus game simulates a cyber war. Then the cycle repeats.
Betsoft offers a video pokie titled The Curios Machine at online casinos like Casino Mate and House of Jack. It has the typical Betsoft 3D graphics and has a story to tell. A 19th century inventor named Miles built a time machine with his robot assistant Gizmo. But they are up against General Traytor who is trying to steal the curious machine. These three characters are the high paying symbols. The same reel set has symbols from different time zones including dinosaurs and space cities. The dinosaur triggers the Blast to the Past Multiplier Free Spins. A random multiplier up to 5x will be applied to each free spin payout. In a winless spin with all 30 paylines enabled, one of the five reels will randomly rewind giving another opportunity to hit a payout. The Travel Through Time bonus round triggered by the time machine symbols scattered anywhere on the reels. It features fantastic animated action between General Traytor and Miles and Gizmo, but players will be more interested in the credits they notch up.
