Most people dream of leaving their everyday lives, the places they know too well behind for a little while, there are often things – their jobs, their budget, their health – that keep them in place. Back in the day, these people had to resort to their imagination to see far away places – read other people’s (adventurers’, travelers’, and explorers’) accounts of the wonders of other lands.

Today, in turn, technology helps us see these far away places with our own eyes even if only on a screen. Today we have websites and smartphone apps, even games that can take us to places virtually, to explore things we never though we might actually lay our eyes upon otherwise. Today we’ll take a look at a few such games you can try at the Vegas Palms, where you can even start the fun with $/€100 free!

Wild Orient

The mysterious East, the cradle of so many civilizations is filled with wonders and riches. Its biggest riches are not its ruins or its hidden treasures, but its vast jungles inhabited by amazing animal species. This is exactly where Wild Orient, one of the most beautiful Vegas Palms slot machine, will take you.

The game’s reels are filled with the likenesses of fascinating Oriental animals like the tiger, the crane, the monkey, or the giant panda, among others. All this coupled with a relaxing, green background of a lush jungle, and an Oriental background music to soothe your mind.

Jungle Jim: El Dorado

Jungle Jim is a new character introduced last year at the Vegas Palms. As his name suggests, he is an explorer bent on uncovering the secrets hidden in the jungle. In his first adventure, players can join Jim on a quest to uncover the incredible riches hidden in the Amazonian rainforest, to find the legendary city of gold, El Dorado.

The game has amazing visuals and big wins in store for its players. Hopefully, it will be followed by further adventures of the famous explorer – after all, there are still jungles with undiscovered riches in them.


Strictly speaking, the Tarzan video slot machine is a bit like a mix of the two games above. Vegas Palms players can join Edgar Rice Burroughs’ immortal character, Tarzan, in his home in the North African jungle, and assist his first encounter with the Western civilization (namely Jane Porter and his father) surrounded by all his animal friends.

The game is not only a tribute to one of the most beloved literary characters, the protagonist of countless books, movies, and comic books but also a playful way for players to explore some of the secrets of the jungle from home, and leave their lives behind, even if for a short while.

I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

Like everyone else, I love to travel, have visited a lot of countries and all that but my big thing is Africa.

I also own and run The Grown-up Travel Company as a travel designer creating personalised African itineraries for experienced adventurers
