The renowned crime writer’s globally famous 1934 whodunnit novel featuring super-sleuth Hercule Poirot has already sparked two gripping movies.
Now you can play detective in Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express Slot, based on this mystery thriller, or Agatha Christie’s Mystery Wilds. It was launched to coincide with the Kenneth Branagh film release at the end of November 2017, and to make the most of the surrounding hype, although there was no formal tie-in.
There are five reels and three rows here, plus 25 Paylines which payout from left to right in this Gamesys-powered offering. HD graphics heighten the atmosphere and contribute to the overall playing experience.
You’ll see Poirot himself, pondering the complexities of the case, in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
Meanwhile, a jazzy 1930s background tune plays on each spin, also adding to the fun. So jump aboard – and start your dramatic journey through the heart of Europe!
How to play
Coin sizes in the game range from £1 to £4, and there’s a top payout of 750 coins. The highest payout is 750 coins, while the minimum stake is just 25p.
Set your bets per line using the coins size function at the bottom of the game. Perhaps unusually, there’s no Autopsin feature with Orient Express.
Symbols reflect the 1930s setting of the story and include characters from the novel, as well as items like a glass of wine, gun, watch and piece of paper signed by Daisy Armstrong. The characters are the higher-paying symbols.
Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express Slot special features
The train is the bonus symbol.
As Poirot watches over the reels, he takes over certain symbols on Reel 1 at random, inspects them and turns them into Wilds. Whichever symbol is stopped becomes Wild, as will all other icons of the same type wherever they are on the reels.
Wilds replace all other symbols, apart from bonus ones, to complete a win.
Passenger investigation free spins bonus
Land three bonus symbols (the train icon) on Reels 1, 3 and 5 to play this round. Open the carriage doors and discover passengers and the number of multipliers or free spins (up to five) that they’ve hidden.
Reveal the prime suspect to kick off the free spins.
Landing an additional three bonus icons will land you further free spins during this round.
Unfortunately, this game doesn’t feature a progressive jackpot, so you’ll need to make your money in other ways.

RTP or Return to Player with this game is pretty average at 95.52%
