Journey to the West

To the West you say? I'm more of a south-easterly person myself.

Play Game
The Journey to the West slot game is an online video machine developed by the Pragmatic Play company. Eastern culture and fictional characters are used as an inspiration for this machine, so the machine design, signs and effects are all unique. Based on a classic ancient tale, Journey to the West is a historical Chinese themed slot from Pragmatic Play. Available on mobile, tablet and desktop devices, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline game that comes with classy design, stacked symbols and a free spins feature where multipliers of up to 5x are on offer. Play from between 25p and £125 per spin at The Phone Casino.

The Journey to the West slot machine game has 25 fixed pay line, meaning that a gambler is going to pay for all 25 each roll, without an option to change that. However, coin value and bet per line are two optional parameters. It is important to first decide how many coins a gambler wants to put on each line, and it is ranging from 1 up to 10. Something for everyone at The Phone Casino.

At The Phone Casino, you can enjoy 5 reels , 3 rows, 8 regular icons, 1 wild and 1 scatter. Standard signs are represented as a monkey, the king, a ping and a warrior and four eastern unique signs. A wild is an icon that can act as any standard sign, helping a gambler to make the winning combination. Besides that, it is the most valuable icon in the game (two times more valuable than the highest valuable regular).A scatter triggers the Free Spins bonus feature. Free Spins Whenever three or more free spin signs appear at any position on the reels, the gratis addition is activated, and 5 costless swirls are awarded. Before the feature starts, a gambler can choose 1 out of 5 different options, each one with a unique prize multiplier and stacked icon. Their bonuses can be seen in the pay table section, on the 3rd page. The pay table is opened by clicking the “i” button. A great addition for The Phone Casino.

The icons in this game are strange and interesting. The symbols here include an Oriental prince, a Viking warrior, a pig wearing a green outfit and crown, and a werewolf with a golden headband. There are also various symbols with Chinese style lettering, along with wild symbol and a free spins symbol with golden snakes slithering up the sides.

Then music in the background features violins and flutes along with an Asian sounding lute, while there are drums and cymbals crashing in the background to give an air of drama. The scene behind the reels features a dark blue sky with twinkling stars, and glowing Chinese lanterns swinging in the breeze. Betting is easy in this game. Very engaging.

The next symbol to look for is the werewolf who pays just 100 coins for 5 symbols, while the prince pays 50 coins, the pig pays 30 coins, and the Viking warrior pays 25 coins. Finally, the Chinese lettering symbols pay from 13 to 15 coins for 5 symbols together on the screen. The wild symbol is the green circle with the golden lettering in the middle spelling WILD. This symbol stands in for the others in the slot to give more possible wins, though it doesn’t stand in for the scatter. Snake Scatter Awards Free Spins The free spins symbol with the snakes climbing the sides is the scatter. If you hit 3 or more of these icons you trigger the free spins round giving 5 free spins straight away. If you hit 3 or more again during free spins, you earn another 3 free spins indefinitely!

Look out for the Sha Wujing symbol as this gives you a 5x multiplier on your wins.

In fact, you only need to land 2 of the character symbols to create a winner. All symbols can land fully stacked. The Monkey King is the most rewarding, paying 100 coins if you land 5 on a payline. The standard symbols are joined by a wild which replaces all other symbols bar the scatter – it too can land fully stacked and awards payouts of 10, 30, 100 or 400 coins.

Journey to the West features 16 symbols total, eight regular, four low-paying and four high-paying (the four characters). Here’s the trick – all these symbols have the potential to be stacked. While this doesn’t mean they’ll always fill the whole reel, it’s more likely than not they will. Symbol combinations start paying when you get at least three of any on an active payline, but what you’ll want is landing five.

The golden dragons symbol is the scatter

The golden dragons symbol is the scatter – 3 or more of this symbol anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature and with it an initial haul of 5 free spins. You’ll then have a decision to make – choose from 1 of the 4 main characters or the wild. Extra stacks of this symbol will be added to the reels for your free spins. Each 1 offers a special multiplier award when it forms part of a winning combination:
• Wild wins pay 1x
• Monkey King wins pay 2x
• Xuanzang wins pay 3x
• Pigsy wins pay 4x
• Sha wins pay 5x
