Magic Journey Theme/Symbols

Magic Journey is a Chinese themed slot which is based on the warrior Sun Wukong. With a traditional temple in the background, it has a distinctive soundtrack which is rather pleasant. You will see a 1x5 scorecard at the bottom of the screen – then you’ll see a 3x3 grid above it. Symbols include a selection of mythical and iconic Chinese characters – all of them offer the same payout.

Respin feature

The key to winning is to highlight symbols on the 1x5 scorecard at the bottom – if the highlighted symbols light up a payline, you’ll win. If you see Sun Wukong, this Respin feature is triggered with 1 respins awarded. The more paylines you get a win on, the bigger the payout.

On the respin, more symbols can land which will also highlight on the score card. The respins keep on coming as long as new paylines are being formed or the respin symbol (Sun Wukong) is hit. At the end of the respins cycle, you will get a payout depending on how many paylines are highlighted:

  • 1 payline = 2 x stake
  • 2 paylines = 5 x stake
  • 3 paylines = 10 x stake
  • 4 paylines = 15 x stake
  • 5 paylines = 30 x stake
  • 6 paylines = 100 x stake
  • 8 paylines = 400 x stake

Magic Journey thoughts

The Magic Journey slot is an odd one – a few spins in demo mode (above) should make sense pretty quickly. Basically, it’s about filling paylines by getting highlighted symbols. If you see the respin Sun Wukong symbol, you will get a series of respins which can highlight the whole 3x3 grid – do this to win 400 times your stake (which is the maximum payout).

High variance and highly unconventional, Magic Journey is different and worth trying. Other Pragmatic Play slots that are recommended include the magical Aladdin and the Sorcerer which can conjure up to 6,532 x stake wins.
