Visually, the Journey of the Gods appears and feels very grand whilst also capturing an ancient aesthetic, being set high up in the sky. On the reels, players can expect to come across the usual playing card symbols Jack to Ace as well as the caduceus which is the traditional symbol of the God Hermes, the ankh crosses from ancient Egypt, the Goddess of love and beauty Aphrodite and the God of thunder, Zeus. The game logo is the most rewarding symbol and players that land 3, 4 or 5 on any of their pay lines will be awarded 5, 50 or 500 times their bet staked respectively. The wild is represented by the sun and can replace all of the other symbols to create winning combinations. When the player lands a winning combination the symbols that have created it are replaced and new symbols then come into play which provides the player with the chance to win over and over again. Landing 4 cascading wins in a row activates the Free Games feature which players begin with ten free spins.
Whilst in this particular feature cascading wins are also applicable and will make the players free spins continue for longer and for every cascading win more free spins are won. There is a total of 50 free spins on offer if the player lands eight cascades and there is no limit on the number of extra free spins a player can win. This slot is simple yet incredibly effective and incorporates some of the most popular features found in slot games, all be it in a completely different way from the norm. Although I found that there wasn’t anything really special the features can be landed frequently and generate further winnings.
The gameplay and design are definitely impressive and for players looking for a slot that is simple but provides a lot of fun and some decent pay outs then Journey of the Gods is definitely the right choice. Personally, I really enjoyed playing Journey of the Gods and although it is possibly the most basic game ever produced by Blueprint Gaming, and I feel it is much better for it.
The slot has a medium volatility although there is the chance to win a spectacular x5,000 the players stake each and every time they spin the reels or play a free spin if they have filled their reels with the game’s logo symbol. For all players that have a penchant for volatile games that are themed around the Gods I would highly recommend the Journey of the Gods as well as Book of Gods from Big Time Gaming and Age of Gods from the development team at Playtech.
