Jackpots:

There’s no progressive jackpot on this high variance slot (RTP  96.56%), but with three reel grids and 100 different payways, there are plenty of opportunities to win. If you’re lucky enough to make it into the bonus rounds you could land a max win of 2000 coins!

Special Features and Bonuses:

This adventure-themed game is filled with fun features that we really love. They’re interesting and exciting and we couldn’t wait to land one of these:

  • Volcano Wild Feature: land 2 or more Volcano Wilds in reel 3 on any of the three game boards to trigger this feature. The volcanos will blow and spew golden lava randomly about the board, turning other symbols into wilds and increasing your chance of winning.
  • Bonus Scatter Symbol Feature: land 3 or more Bonus Scatter Drills to get a choice between four runestones; behind one is a random coin payout, the other three could be one of these Bonus Rounds:
  • Safari Free Spins Bonus: awards 10 free spins, where each reel grid has a special wild which turns into a multiplier if you land three per grid. Mammoth Wild has 2x wager and appears on grid 1, Sea Creature Wild has 3x wager and appears on grid 2 and T-Rex Wild has 5x payout and appears on grid 3.
  • Mushroom Forest Bonus: pick 3 mushrooms for rewards; mushrooms can be extra picks or multipliers to increase your bonus!
  • Fossil Hunt Bonus: collect as many shovels as possible in 3 spins. Shovels reveal fossils and lock with each spin – bonus is awarded based on total number of fossils.

Graphics and Sounds:

This slot is smartly designed to keep in with the adventurous theme… experience moving graphics like bursting volcanoes accompanied with exciting music fit for a journey. Enjoy spinning these colourful reels with beautifully illustrated landscapes in the backdrop.

Conclusion:

It’s time for adventure! The Epic Journey Slot is well-designed and full of fun features that we can’t wait to hit (still trying to land the 4th bonus rooms) but the high volatility of this slot keeps us coming for more and more.
