Ancient myth and legend is the theme on offer in Journey of the Gods, a 5 reel, 10 payline slot game from Blueprint Gaming. It’s played using a cascading reels game engine and also comes with a bonus round where you can win up to 50 free spins (initially). Play on all devices from between 10p and £500 per spin
As usual for a Blueprint Gaming slot game, the design in Journey of the Gods is very high end. With a sun-kissed sky in the background, you’ll see A to J symbols plus jewels, crosses and a trio of ancient gods. The best paying symbol is the Journey of the Gods logo. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in a row and you’ll pocket an award of 5, 50 or 500 times your total stake. The sun god emblem is the game’s wild. This can land on all 5 reels and substitutes for all other symbols.
The game is played using a cascading reels game engine. After a successful spin, the winning symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. The cascades continue until there’s one where no new winning combination is created.
Rather than scatters, its consecutive cascade wins that are the key to unlocking the Free Games feature in Journey of the Gods. Land 4 or more cascade wins in a row to trigger the feature round and with it, 10 free spins. Each extra cascade win adds another 10 free spins to your total. 5, 6, 7 or 8 cascade wins award 20, 30, 40 or 50 free spins. The cascading reels game engine is in play during the free spins round too. You can re-trigger more free spins too if you get on a roll.
This is one of Blueprint Gaming’s simpler slot games. The visuals are as impressive as usual and the stirring orchestral score fits the theme perfectly. The cascading reels keep things ticking along at a decent enough gallop to keep things interesting. As far as variance goes, we’re in the medium range but you can win 5,000 times your stake on each spin/free spin though.
There’s nothing particularly spectacular about Journey of the Gods – everything it does offer it does well though. If you enjoy the ancient theme, then it’s certainly worth investigating. I would also recommend you try Age of the Gods from Playtech which offers huge payouts of up to 7,000 times your stake for each free spin in 1 of the free spins features.
