Aldos Journey Slot Review (Yggdrasil)

Aldos Journey SlotJoin a merchant by the name Aldo, who sets out on an adventure in search of treasures in this new release by Yggdrasil. I love the way the developer has incorporated cartoon-like graphics. This makes the slot one of the most fun that I have come across in the recent past.

Please read my review on this slot before committing any betting funds to it:

Aldo’s Journey is a slot game that comes on quite a large playing area. The game is set up on 5x5 reels plus a total of 65 pay lines.  There are different combinations that you can use to earn top wins that can go to as high as 4205xs.

Yggdrasil announced this slot as of medium in volatility and it has an excellent RTP of 96.50%. On the part of the features, Aldo’s Journey has quite a number that includes the Wilds, free spins, as well as Compass scatters.

Betting and Prizes

Although the slot may look very large and expensive to play, bets prices here start from as low as $0.10. If you are a high roller, you also have a chance to gamble big on Aldo’s journey with their top betting price hitting $100.

Although the game has the potential to reach high payouts of up to 4,205x, it is important to know that this is not going to be a walk in the park.  

When we look at the volatility of the slot, we see that Aldo’s journey is a lot with medium volatility. However, this is not the best variance for a slot with such low top prices.

Aldo’s Journey Slot Features

Yggdrasil is a prominent game developer and it can only be fair for them to offer some of the best features for a slot. Well, Aldo’s journey has quite a number ad they include wilds, scatters, free spins as well as multipliers.

It is the Aldo icon that you need to use as a substitute for all other regular symbols apart from the scatter. Aldo is one of the features that can help you increase your odds of winning although this depends on the number of lines that it is a part of.

The scatter symbol will appear as the Compass symbol, and you will only need three to trigger 7 free spins. The scatter symbol comes in five variants, and these are based on where the scatters are.

There are free spins version in different place like versions for Italy, Persia (sticky wild that is added after each round), Mongolia (used to remove one symbol after every spin, if you manage two of these, you will be given the multiplier), China (comes with 2x multiplier plus a trail of wilds) and lastly, we have the Journey (2x multiplier and thereafter, one of the four gets triggered).

Theme & Design

Aldo’s journey is quite straightforward and what we get here is an adventure inspired slot. The explorer by the name Aldo is a model after the famous Marco Polo. He sets on a journey through different continents, and we see him traverse countries like China, Persia, Italy and finally Mongolia.

The slot’s symbols come in the form of four card suits, and there are additional symbols with icons like Aldo, a Compass as well as four different types of gemstones.


Aldo’s Journey is an average slot that is fun and good for spending some free time. However, the low payout did not motivate me enough to play for real money.
