Quickspin Releases New Online Slot – The Epic Journey

The Swedish based online slots games developer Quickspin has just released their latest title across select internet casino providing platforms.

The new slot is titled The Epic Journey, and draws its inspiration from the classic Jules Verne novel Journey to the Centre of the Earth, which has seen countless re-makes and re-telling’s across multiple media since it first was released in 1864.

The slot has taken a while to find its way to the surface, with whispers of its impending arrival first circulating back in November 2014 when Quickspin uploaded a promotional video to YouTube.

And now with it making its fully fledged debut it can join other historic storytelling slots in the Quickspin portfolio including Beowulf, Sinbad, The Three Musketeers and Treasure Island.

The New Slot From Quickfire – The Epic Journey

With a wealth of content to draw upon, including the aforementioned Jules Verne novel and a memorable film adaptation which was released in 1959, Quickspin has gone to one of their favourite creative pools here – the re-making of classic stories – for the production of their latest online slot.

It can be said that Quickfire generally handles this type of material well, and rather than resting on their laurels with a safe and trusted theme and title, they have gone the extra mile and loaded the game up with some very interesting content and features.

A Journey To The Details Of This New Slot

Not content with offering up your standard 5 reel 25 payline affair, Quickspin has reached deep into their game mechanics bag of tricks and gone for the big guns straight away, which will probably make more than a few players jaws drop when they first load up the game.

We’re talking about a 3 independent machine, 100 payline bad boy here, with the 3 machines reels not only all rotating at each turn, but also operating with interlaced connectivity.

It’s enough to make a slot players head spin!

Of course 3 machines means there is a lot to look at, and the players screen is packed from top to bottom with elements from the game, which including a cast of characters from the story which feature on the reels, and a sizeable control panel from which the player can game from.

Not content with all of the pokie action that the 3 machines can create, Quickspin has also woven in combinations of Bonus Games, Free Spins, Multipliers and Wilds into the game.

Bonus Features And Games

There are a total of 4 Bonus Features and Games included in The Epic Journey slot.

When 3 earth digging drills appear on the reels, a Multi Bonus/Feature game is activated, which will lead the player to an underground room with 4 rune stones that they can choose from.

Some of the goodness that waits once one of these runes is chosen includes:

A fossil hunt game where the gamer must collect earth digging shovels in an attempt to fully reveal a fossilised dinosaur, and the riches which are attached to it.

A mushroom picking activity which rewards players with Multipliers as well as other prizes.

A safari Free Spins feature where dinosaur Wilds are collected in an attempt to turn them into Multiplier Wilds.

A volcano feature which is triggered when 2 or 3 volcano’s land on the reels, which has the effect of causing the volcano’s to erupt and spew Wild symbols all over the place.

Will Slot Players Make A Journey Of Their Own?

While this slot is certainly not one for the faint hearted, and it does carry a lot of content weight around with it, we think it has real potential to become a fan favourite, and certainly contains enough gaming elements to keep your average player interested for more than a few spins.

All in all the team from Quickfire has done a good job with this slot title, and the extra time taken for it to make its official debut has been worth it in our opinion.
