Epic Journey Slot Review

Epic Journey is a historical Chinese themed slot from Red Tiger Gaming that has 5 reels and 20 paylines. Visually stunning, it benefits from Big Wilds where you basically get a 3-reel wild block! The Epic Staff can appear randomly in the base game to give you 3 mini features – there’s a massive 3x3 symbol, nudged reels and symbol transformations on offer. There’s a Gold Bonus feature where you pick from gold pots to win cash prizes. The main attraction is the Journey Bonus feature where you work your way along the cash trail to win up to 888 times your stake.

Epic Journey is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Red Tiger Gaming that has a historical Chinese feel. It comes with plenty of extras including a quartet of stacked wilds, giant 3×3 symbols, magic nudges and transforming symbols. There’s also a cash trail that offers multiplier prizes of up to 888x. Start your trek from between 20p and £500 per spin.

The visuals on display in Epic Journey are reminiscent of the cult TV series Monkey – joining the lower value A to 10 are a scroll and a crown as well as emperor, prince, pig and monkey characters who are all wild and can land fully stacked. 5 wilds on a payline pays 1,000 coins. There are Big Wilds available which cover 3 reels fully!

As usual with slots from Red Tiger Gaming, Epic Journey is packed full of features. Watch out for the Epic Staff that can fly across the screen and trigger 1 of the following:

  • Mega Tile feature – massive 3×3 symbol is added to reels that brings with it a guaranteed win.
  • Magic Nudge feature – the reels can be nudged up or down to create a new winning combination.
  • Magic Reels feature – a selection of symbols are transformed into the same highest paying symbol to deliver a new winning configuration.

Landing 3 Bonus symbols on the same spin will unlock the Gold Bonus feature – you’re taken to a new screen and presented with a selection of 10 gold pots. Pick 1 to reveal a multiplier prize and hopefully a pick again. You’ll have up to 5 picks here with some very big prizes up for grabs the further you make it.

There is also a Journey Bonus feature which is triggered by landing 3 of the Journey Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. As you’d expect given a slot called Epic Journey, it’s a cash trail feature. Work your way along the map to reveal multiplier prizes. Reach the final destination and a massive prize of 888 times your stake is on offer.

Epic Journey is fairly typical of Red Tiger Gaming slots – it’s well designed (with a fine Asian soundtrack) and comes with plenty of base game mini features. The main bonus features are much harder to come by but can be well worth the wait. I consider it to be a medium variance game with the bigger wins coming in the 2 main bonus features. The mini features can be quite lucrative too as well as the Big Wilds (1×3 wild block) in the base game.

If you enjoy Chinese themed slots that offer plenty of base game extras, then this Epic Journey is one worth undertaking. I also recommend Yggdrasil Gaming’s Legend of the Monkey King which theme wise is very similar (and is very good I should add).
