The Epic Journey Slot Review

The Epic Journey is Quickspin’s take on the Jules Verne novel, Journey to the Centre of the Earth. The casino software providers do not specifically state that, but it is quite clearly implied by the imagery and graphics which appear on the reels. The one which stands out more than anything else in this game, though, is not the imagery or the theme, it is the features. There are plenty of them.

Quickspin has seen fit to include four bonus rounds, and they are not all free game modes, either. There are also two symbols of wilds. Goodies galore can be found in this game, and that is just as well as the graphics are a little elementary at best. There is always a downside to every slot, and in the case of The Epic Journey, it is the cost of a spin.

We will look at the cost of those spins in a moment. However, after giving this game a good playthrough, we can say that the prizes you can win do compensate for the costly bets, and the features themselves are thoroughly enjoyable – well, three of them are. This offsets any negative feelings we encountered playing The Epic Journey.

How to Play The Epic Journey

The Epic Journey features one hundred paylines. To fit them neatly onto the screen, Quickspin has chosen to create three sets of five reels. Officially, there are only five reels, but once you land a combo on one of the main ones, these can carry over onto the other sets of reels. It sounds complicated, but when you give it a spin, you will soon see what we mean.

This extensive payline structure comes at a cost – and a hefty one at that.

You are looking at minimum bets of 0.80 a spin, while maximum bets can rise to 80.00 a game.

On the upside, prizes are capped at a non-progressive 500x a bet, there is an RTP rate of 96.54%, and this is a medium variance game.

To help you land wins, there is no shortage of special symbols. Here is what you can expect to see…

  • Wild – Standard lava wilds can replace all paying symbols.
  • Volcano Wild – Volcano wilds can appear on all the reels. However, they only pop up in the centre of each reel, at least initially. If two or three show up, they can erupt to spread to other parts of the screen.
  • Bonus – Bonus symbols appear as drills, and you will need three to activate any of the game’s three special modes.

Game Rules

The Epic Journey Slot Features

After acquiring three drills, you will get to pick one of four runic stones that the drills have uncovered. Your choice is of paramount importance here as it determines which round you get. There are four special modes you trigger, and while three of them are decent, one is a touch boring. Here is what you can get…

Safari Free Spin Round

This free spin mode offers ten free games, with Mammoth wilds, Sea Creature wilds, and T-Rex wilds appearing on the first, second and third reel-sets, respectively. Get all three, and they can boost your winnings with handsome multipliers.

Safari Free Spin Round
Mushroom Forest Instant Prize Mode

A basic click and win game, this profitable round can see you choose from a series of mushrooms to land cash prizes, multipliers, or extra picks.

Mushroom Forest Instant Prize Mode
Fossil Hunt Spin Bonus

This second free spin round gives you a total of three games. You need to collect as many shovels as possible here. Every shovel you acquire showcases a fossil, and that will remain on the screen until the feature ends. The more shovels (and thus fossils) you get, the bigger your prize will turn out to be.
