Grand Express: Action Class theme, graphics & soundtrack

This game has a similar theme to the Orient Express demo slot with a jaunty 1920s-style soundtrack and a design that takes you on a multi-stop journey to the heyday of rail travel and your favourite casino all in one go. The reels offer a variety of symbols, from a flapper and champagne flutes to gambling chips and a roulette wheel. There are also card suit symbols that, for once, actually feel like they could be part of the theme of the game.

Grand Express: Action Class bonus features

First Class

Each tenth spin of the game will trigger the First Class feature. The prize icon only appears during this feature and at least six of these will earn you the express respins bonus. During the First Class feature, each prize icon can offer a win of 1x your total bet. This prize is awarded if a wild lands in a framed position. These lit frames are positioned and locked throughout the feature if a wild lands on them, so a second wild in the same position will reward you with a 1x prize. Once a wild lands in a framed position, it will become either a wild or a prize symbol. Multipliers attached to wild symbols create wild multipliers, which can multiply with each other to create bumper wins.


In standard play, the Grand Express wild can replace other symbols apart from the scatters and the prize symbols to help create wins. These wilds won’t appear on a tenth spin when the feature is going to be triggered, nor can they land during the respins round.


If you trigger the Express respins bonus, the prize icons that started it will hold and the remaining positions will turn into individual reels. You will get three respins - in addition to holding in place, each prize symbol that lands will reset the respin count to three. If you can fill any - or all - of the reels with prize icons, you will win one of the game’s three jackpots. 


The grand jackpot of 1,400x your total bet is awarded if you fill all three rows with the symbols, while the major jackpot can reward you with 40x your total bet if you fill two of the rows. Fill one row and the mini jackpot could be yours. This is valued at 15x your total bet.

Free spins

The game also offers a bonus free spins round, which is triggered by at least three steam train scatters landing anywhere on the reels. You will get ten free games with the playing card symbols removed. The games will play in the same way at the First Class feature. At least three more scatters during a free spin can retrigger the respins bonus. 


The steam train scatter will also pay wins wherever it lands on the reels. The prizes on offer if you bet the maximum of 100.00 per spin are:

Five steam trains = 10,000.00
Four steam trains = 1,500.00
Three steam trains = 1,000.00

Grand Express: Action Class review: our verdict

This isn’t the most sophisticated-looking slot out there, but it is not short on action. The regular bonus features keep the interest levels high, as does the prospect of winning one of the three available jackpots.
