Epic Adventure is brought to you by Novomatic and is a progressive jackpot slot with 5 reels and Scatter Pays payouts. Playable from 40p to £50 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you go on an adventure with the explorer where you can benefit from a progressive jackpot as well as free spins.
Visually, Epic Adventure looks like Jungle Explorer and Temple of Secrets (by Novomatic). With an Incan feel to it, symbols on the reels include just the courageous explorer himself and ancient masks. In order to form a win, you need to get 5 or more explorer symbols anywhere on the reels – odd, I know.
If you get 7 or more explorer symbols simultaneously on the reels, you will trigger the Free Games feature – here you receive just 1 free spin with these explorer symbols held in position. If additional explorer symbols land in the free spin, they will also be held in place with an extra free spin granted. This continues until no more explorer symbols land on the reels. When it comes to wins, you will win the following depending on how many explorer symbols appear at once on the reels:
|5 x explorer symbols – 1 time your stake||10 x explorer symbols – 15 times your stake|
|6 x explorer symbols – 2 times your stake||11 x explorer symbols – 20 times your stake|
|7 x explorer symbols – 4 times your stake||12 x explorer symbols – 30 times your stake|
|8 x explorer symbols – 6 times your stake||13 x explorer symbols – 50 times your stake|
|9 x explorer symbols – 10 times your stake||14 x explorer symbols – 100 times your stake|
Now, if you manage to get 15 explorer symbols on the reels, you will win the progressive jackpot – you need to play at maximum stakes for this to happen. If playing at lower stakes, you will win the proportional amount.
Epic Adventure is definitely not typical as it only has 2 symbols – as a result, you will trigger the Free Games feature fairly regularly. However, winning anything above 15 times your stake is quite rare. I’ve won 50 times my stake once and 30 times my stake a few times.
I found it to be a medium to high variance game which is all about the progressive jackpot really. It’s not one of Novomatic’s better offerings in my opinion but it does offer that big pull of a huge jackpot.
