About the Big Easy slot

Do you know New Orleans, Louisiana ? This is a large city that for several hundred years has been a center of both trade and culture. It was French colonizers who founded the city a long time ago and the French influences are actually still very clear, for example in the city's restaurant offer. What New Orleans is most famous for today is probably the Jazz and the extravagant Mardi Gras celebration. If there is one city that can be considered the capital of jazz in the world, it is new ”The Big Easy” Orleans.

The Big Easy slot from IGT is all about jazz and late nights on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. When you click on the reels, you get to experience a portion of the bustling, noisy folk life$ing the classic parade street and its many classic jazz clubs. The background music is of course a jazzy story and the game is also otherwise well-sounding (for those who like jazz).

Playing the Big Easy is easy. We would actually like to say that this slot is one of IGT's most ”clear” slots when it comes to all$ing stakes and features. In some articles from IGT, it is a bit tricky to get started and difficult to understand the bonus features, but the Big Easy has the same simple concept for both bets and information about features that they, among others, Play'N GO and NetEnt can boast.

Stakes and winnings

The Big Easy has five classic reels with three rows of icons and a total of 20 paylines. The lines are of a fixed nature so they are always in play. However, there is a variant of the game that you can play with 1, 5, 10 or 15 lines instead of the 20, but it can only be hard to come up with New Zealand online casinos .

The coin value is normally between$ 0.10 and$100. The fact that we write ”normal” is because different online casinos can specify different maximum bets. Most of the time,$ 2000 is the maximum bet while$ 2 is the minimum bet.

The jazz singer and the wild symbol can both give a win of 1000 coins. This win can be multiplied by up to a factor of 10 in the free spins round, which means that the actual maximum win per line can be as high as 10,000 coins.

Similar to many others(the majority?) of casino games from IGT, the Big Easy RTP is not an exact science. When you play, you will receive a refund of between 92.15 – 96.16%. The lower number shows the RTP of the base game while the higher number is the maximum RTP if you get to play the free spins round with the maximum multiplier. Of course, these figures reflect an average over time.

Big Easy slot bonus


The symbols on the five reels of the Big Easy all have a direct and natural connection to New Orleans and the city's famous jazz scene. The symbols that can be considered high win symbols are in the form of the game logo (which is also the wild and actually also the free spins symbol), a jazz singer, a golden moon and a trumpet player. The icons that give a little less clink at the checkout represent a piano, an image of classic Bourbon Street, a saxophone, a street sign with the text Bourbon, a drink (the traditional drink Sazerac), a lobster plate and a poster. In short, IGT has boiled down all/half of New Orleans into eleven deliciously designed symbols.


The Big Easy has two special symbols, namely a wild and a scatter. A little special is that the wild symbol can also double as a bonus symbol. Three consecutive wilds activate the free spins round!


The wild symbol represents the logo of the game. It's about a neon light shining story with the text ”The Big Easy”. As a wild, it replaces all other icons with the exception of the moonscatter (see below). The Joker is also, along with the icon depicting a jazz singer, the one who pays the biggest winnings.


The scatter symbol in the Big Easy represents a moon. If you get at least three of these on the reels, you win a cash prize immediately. In fact, the scatter does not have any additional function. Three, four and five moonscatters will give you 4x, 11x and 20x respectively.

Free spins

With at least three of the Big Easy symbols on adjacent reels, a second screen opens where you get to make two choices. The first choice, which concerns the number of spins you are allowed to play, is made by clicking on jazz clubs. The second choice, which determines the size of the multiplier, you make by clicking on instruments. Below you will see the possible outcomes.

3 bonus symbols = 8, 10 or 15 freespins with multipliers of 2x, 3x or 4x
4 bonus symbols = 16, 18 or 20 free spins with multipliers of 5x, 6X or 10x
5 bonus symbols = 22, 24 or 25 free spins with multipliers of 7x, 8x or 10x.

An interesting feature of the free spins round is that it can be re-triggered an infinite number of times. You can actually get to play over 500 spins in succession!


The Big Easy is in many ways an extraordinary slot. The graphics and sound are both exemplary and there is a good balance between the base game and the bonus features. The free spins round itself is a modern classic that provides both great entertainment and the chance of huge wins. Imagine being able to play up to 500 spins with multipliers of up to 10 times on all wins! The only thing we have to point out as a major disadvantage is the relatively low refund.

Last but not least, we can draw your attention to the fact that Play'n GO has also given itself to the theme of New Orleans and jazz, this in the castles Jazz of New Orleans. The two games have quite a lot of similarities, but Play'N GO's alster also has a jackpot game. The game is part of the series of jackpot games that Play'N GO delivers exclusively for Betsson , Betsafe and other BML casinos.
