Journey to the West slot review –
Journey to the West is a video slot produced by the company “Pragmatic Play” made with an Asian theme based on the legend of The Monkey King.
This is a slot with a structure of 5 x 3 reels and is equipped with 25 pay lines. This game counts with 8 regular symbols, 4 high paid symbols, and four low paid symbols, and a very important detail that can be seen on the paytable, is that for all symbols, differences between prices paid by forming a line of 3, 4 and 5 of a kind is very small, so that to form a long line is not something that really excites anyone.
The reason for this is partly that in this game all the symbols, including the wild, have been set to appear stacked. On the other hand, hit average of this slot is good enough to allow relatively often to cover all the reels almost entirely with the same symbol, however, the awards received by this concept are quite modest; so for example, I got a hit where all except two symbols were symbols of pig-like character, and my payout in this case amounted only 6.24x my total bet; also got another couple of hits with The Monkey King, the best paid symbol of the game, and in both cases I only missed one symbol to completely cover the screen with that icon, and in these hits my payouts were 64x and 68x my total bet respectively.
Hence, prices of the paytable are rather weak, but hit average is better than we could expect from a slot of these characteristics.
Meanwhile, round free games contains only 5 spins regardless of the number of scatters you achieve gathering; once therein you choose one of 5 symbols to make this your special symbol during all that round, and each has attached a wins’ multiplier between 1x and 5x, and I think if you’re very lucky in this round, you could finish with profits larger than 100x your total bet, though I never got to exceed 30x in this round.
Finally, “Journey to the West” is a slot that has passed through my hands without trouble or fanfare; I think maybe this slot could be used to meet certain wagering requirements because, in my opinion, this seems to be a set of low-medium variance that could very likely be useful doing this work, however, this does not seem to be a game suitable for those players who love wins bigger than 100x your total bet. It may be a video slot of your taste, or maybe not, so it is better you try it out in order to get your own opinion and good luck.
