A simple unwritten law of the universe says that if something is considered to have “iconic” imagery, a pokie can and will be made inspired by it. Such is the case for London and the Aristocrat’s Big Ben slot. Not only does it feature all of the most familiar images of The City, but it features many ways to win large lots of pounds (or Aussie dollars if you prefer), too.

Aristocrat is one of the best and most prolific pokie makers both in Australia and worldwide, making pokies since 1953 and being a publicly listed company in Australia since 1996. This pokie is just another in its storied collection, and in our opinion, one of their best. Read below in our Big Ben review to find out just exactly why.

Detailed review


Jackpot & bonus games

Big Ben has two main bonus features. The first shares its name with the game, and is triggered whenever the scatter symbol (Big Ben) appears anywhere on the reels. Just appearing two, three, four, or five times will win you 2x, 5x, 25x, or 1000x your wager, but if Ben appears on reels 1 and 5 at the same time you’ll also get to listen the clock ring between 1 and 12 times. The more it rings the more you win in bonus real money, up to 500x your bet if it clangs 12 times.

There is also a free spin feature that is activated when Ben appears three or more times on the reels. Depending on how many times that is, you’ll win 15, 20, or 25 free games during which all wins are doubled. So if you’re keeping all of that straight, that’s three different ways (normal scatter multiplier, Big Ben random rings multiplier, and the free game feature) to win real cash just from the scatter symbols!

Mobile play

Unfortunately there is not a mobile app version of Big Ben available, nor is it available in Aristocrat’s All-Stars app. Our Big Ben online pokies review team had trouble loading it on our mobile smartphones and tablets, but that doesn’t mean there are some devices out there it could possibly work on. If you look hard enough, you might be able to find it on your favourite Australian online casino apps, too.

Why Big Ben Is Worth Playing

In or outside of an actual land casino, Big Ben is an Aussie pokie classic that can still pay out huge amounts of real cash even after all these years. As long as you aren’t picky about your graphics being the latest and greatest, we’d recommend Big Ben to all Aussie pokie players.
