The Epic Journey is a high-tech video slot released in 2014 by Swedish software developer Quckspin. They were inspired by an adventurous expedition deep in the bowels of the Earth described in the famous novel written by Jules Verne – Journey to the Center of the Earth.
This is a 3 in 1 slot, with three sets of reels and a 100 pay-lines total. As far as the base game goes, the three slots work independently from one another and you can hit winning combinations in all three sets simultaneously, but the combined mechanics of all three are needed to activate some of the most interesting bonus features to be found among the Quickspin products. On the right of the screen you can see the largest slot with 5 reels, 4 rows of symbols and the highest number of 40 fixed pay-lines. The other two slots are smaller and located on the right side of the screen, one above the other. They share the same configuration of 5x4, and use 30 fixed pay-lines each. Placing bets is easy, and you only need to pick the desired stake from the list in the bottom of the screen. The game is playable from $ 0.80 up to $ 80 per spin.
The theme presents a journey undertaken by professor Otto Lidenbrock together with his family members Axel and Grauben, and their resourceful guide Hans Bjelke. The main images in the reels are made in their likeness and the rest of the symbols include colorful precious stones, prehistoric animals preserved in ambers and giant drilling devices. Younger generations will probably be more reminded of the Jurassic Park franchise – there are many unintended similarities with the films.
The Epic Journey has an amazing number of 5 different Wild symbols and 5 bonus features with great prizes. It is impossible to get bored playing this game, with all three sets of reels full of action.
Volcano Wild Feature
This feature can award very decent prizes and is tends to activate most often. The Volcano Wild symbol can appear on the middle reels of all three slots, and if you manage to land at least three in one spin you will trigger a beautiful sequence of animations which depict an erupting volcano shooting flaming debris all over the screen. The debris then transforms many regular symbols into Amber Wilds. Amber Wilds act as regular Wilds and substitute for all regular symbols to help generate wins.
There are 4 bonus games total that players can activate by landing three scattered Drill symbols on the middle reel of each slot. A new screen then appears with 4 rune stones to choose from. Depending on the rune stone chosen, players can be awarded Safari Free Spins, Mushroom Forest, Fossil Hunt or Coin Win bonus game.
The Safari Free Spins feature awards players with 10 free spins and three extra Wilds added on each of the three slots. There are Mammoth, Sea Creature and T-Rex Wilds that can combine into multiplier Wilds. These Wilds can also increase the value of all wins two, three or five times for the duration of the free spins.
The Mushroom Forest feature is a pick me style game where players are able to choose among three glowing mushrooms and win different prizes or extra mushrooms to pick from.
The Fossil Hunt feature includes fossil excavations with different cash prizes available.
The Coin Win feature awards instant coin prizes.
Our Take on The Epic Journey Slot
You don’t see this kind of games often, with such an unusual configuration and so many creative features. The only downside of The Epic Journey is that it can be a bit costly to play, but the experience is definitely worth it.
