|What’s Hot||What’s Not|
Inspired by the classic Jules Verne epic Journey to the centre of the Earth, Quickspin shouldn’t be short of ideas for this tale they have brought us to play with, The Epic Journey will hopefully live up to its name. Upon first glance, the game, it looks like we are in for a treat as we embark into a peculiar world where dinosaurs still exist in a might chasm within the Earths centre.
Our adventure will play across a total of three slots, on the left, the largest of the 3 slots, with its 5x5 grid, two smaller grids of 4 x4 are to the right one on top of the other. We can, therefore, conclude that this game is going to not only be grand but will also give us plenty of opportunities to win.
This wondrous world is exquisitely built and designed by Quickspin, the graphics are extremely well done and it has to be said that it seems to be this was a key project for Quickspin, never have we seen so much packed into a game of theirs and it would be very trying to find a game that can equally contend it.
Looking at the finite details of the game, there are many to point out, starting firstly with the slots, by listing them from left, to top right, to bottom right, we have slot 1, 2 and 3. Slot one has 40 pay lines, slot two and three both have 30 each. So a total of 100 ways to win. Betting totals range from 0.80 to 80 in real money, there is auto and turbo gameplay should you wish to play with a bit more haste? The symbols are predominately the journey’s characters, professor, explorer’s both male and female, young adventurer, and the ever trusting mature guide, the rest are made up of exotic stones. There are two noticeable larger symbols, the bonus, which is the drilling craft that took you on your journey and then volcano wild, both are twice the size of normal symbols and will trigger the magical features, as well as play out some fanciful animation within.
Bonuses and Rewards
Rewards are plentiful, and noticeably come around fairly often, the Wild Volcano, when landing on any 2 or 3 reels throughout all slots they trigger a reaction that plays out in animation. The volcano will erupt and with random fireballs spewing from its top, they fall upon the game to produce more wild symbols for an opportunity to cash in big. The Bonus rounds of which there are four can be triggered by landing all three bonus symbols, one in each slot grid. The round consists of a pick-me option, 4 mystery rune stones deep underground in a crystal cave. The features within include Safari Free Spins, Fossil Hunt, Coin win, and Mushroom Forest.
Safari Spin has an additional bonus within, to the top left you’ll see wild markers to fill, 3 of each will make wilds to become multipliers, of either 2, 3 or 5.
Inside Mushroom Forest, you have the pick-me choice of 3 of the 9 mushrooms on offer, prizes contained within are multipliers, extra picks, and cash values.
Fossil Hunt, 3 spins are awarded here and you must land as many shovels as possible, each shovel reveals a part of the fossil and will lock in place for the remaining spins.
Coin Win is a basic cash prize revealed upon the rune stone.
A great game from Quickspin, equal to that of their Big Bad Wolf slot, in terms of gameplay and depth it is one of the best out there online. We would highly recommend this as one of the slots you must play within your lifetime and found in the depths of NetBet Casino, Bet365, Casumo Casino and Kaboo, just to name a few.
