Reviews

The game reel format is a standard 5 reels with 4 rows. The wins are made when 3 or more matching symbols line up on one of the 40 paylines, from the left most reel to the right. The pay outs are based on a multiple of your line wager. The total bets playable range from 0.40 to 120, so to work out what line bet that is, just divide the bet by 40 (number of paylines).

Once you have selected a suitable bet to match your budget, you can hit the big spin button to get the action underway. If you would prefer that the machine spin for you, you can select Auto Spin and set from preselected spin amounts: 10, 50, 100, 500, and 999. You must then set the parameters for the Auto Spin. This entails setting when the Auto Spin should halt spinning:

•    Stop spinning on any win.
•    Stop on a win exceeding a designated amount on a single spin.
•    Stop spinning on a specific win amount.
•    Stop spinning after a loss of a designated amount.

JOURNEY TO THE GOLD THEME, SOUNTRACK AND SYMBOLS

This slot game is based on the classic Chinese novel, “The Journey to the West”, which was first published in the 16th century. The famous book’s characters headline the reels and are designed in a quirky cartoon fashion. The visual rendering is very attractive, crisp and sharp and the animations that accompany the spins and wins are entertaining.

The reels set is transparent in this game, which works well, as Ganapati Gaming have provided a beautiful backdrop behind the round game reel symbols. The background is a traditional Chinese country side, where tall peaks extend higher than the clouds to hold mysterious monasteries in the air. To the right of the reels is the Monkey King, who animatedly presides over the action on the screen and to the left of the reels is a wild collection panel which is prominent in triggering the bonus pick game.

The Chinese traditional musical tones bolster the theme of this epic very well and will have you entranced in no time at all. The oriental theme of the game cannot be escaped, but who would want to escape anyway, as Eastern influence always comes with a little extra bit of luck.

The round reel symbols are the focal point on the screen, as these little icons aligning on the reels will either make or break your bankroll. One of the positive points that we noticed by Ganapati, is that they don’t often use generic symbols, such as card icons etc. Instead, they have gone with some theme related apparel as the lower value game icons. These include: A calabash for storage, the King’s crown, a traditional fan, and lastly a white cloud.

The higher-ranking symbols are all characters from the book. These include the young Monk, Tang Sanzang, who is on a quest to India; Sha Wujing, the kappa (river spirit), and Zhu Bajie, the pig companion.

The game wild is Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. When he appears on the screen, he will substitute for all the symbols except the scatter, to help produce wins. Each time he arrives on the reels he comes with either a red, blue, or green gem crystal, which will be applied to the collection panel on the left. He is also a trigger for respins.

The scatter symbol is the Buddah like character. He is key to unlocking the free spin bonus game.

SPECIAL FEATURESJourney to the Gold slot

This game is not shy on the feature side, at all. There are three out of the ordinary extras that can happen in game to keep you intrigued. These are:

Monkey Respins

Once a Wild land on the screen, the coloured gem will leave the character and attach to the gem collector. Once this happens, the reels will respin immediately, giving you another chance and landing a win without paying for the spin. You can trigger up to 3 consecutive re-spins, before the bonus game is triggered on the forth appearance of the Monkey King.

Zap a Bull Demon King Bonus Game

Two red gems, one green, and one blue collected by landing wilds on the reels will trigger the bonus pick game.

You will be transported to a cave in order to pick 3 of the multiple Bull Demons on the screen, to reward you with either cash prizes or extra picking opportunities. This feature is sure able to pay out well if you are lucky enough to pick the right devils. The fun comes as you watch each demon zapped into oblivion after being chosen.

Free Spins

Should you land 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, you will be awarded with 5, 7, or 9 free spins respectively. Do not be dismayed by the small number of spins on offer, as these are added to by other extra features.

During the free spins, the entire 5th reel will be wild to help land combinations in game. Each time regular wilds appear on the screen, they will remain frozen in place for the remainder of the feature. The gems that they come with them will continue to be collected in hopes of triggering the bonus game.

JACKPOTS

This game does not hold a progressive jackpot, but normal combinational wins could win you as much as 250 times your line stake, per payline. On maximum bet, that translates to €750 per line. The maximum possible win will therefore be around 30,000

GAME VERDICT

Ganapati Gaming are doing a sterling job in producing games with a distinct Asian feel. If oriental style games are your ‘cup of tea’ then give this game a go. For a similar game theme, try Epic Journey from Quickspin, as both slots are based on the same story.

The bonus features provided by Ganapati Gaming are able to pay quite decently, especially if you collect up a number of sticky wilds in the free spin feature.
