What is “The Grand Journey” mobile slot about?
The Grand Journey is a jungle adventure themed mobile video slot developed and produced by Microgaming. The game hosts 5 reels and has 30 paylines available to play with. The coins size in this slot ranges from €0.01 to €0.02 and this slot may be more favoured by low-stake players. There is a maximum of 20 coins to be played per line and so a maximum price for a spin comes to €12.00 (a minimum cost for a spin comes out at only €0.01). A non-progressive jackpot prize can see you win 1,000 coins at 1 coin per line (20,000 coins at 20 coins per line) and up to 600,000 coins can be won in the free spin rounds.
Features such as scatters, wilds, free spins and multipliers can help you get lucky and win big. There are no bonus games in this slot.
Look & Feel
The Grand Journey has all the relevant features to make the theme feel realistic. The backdrop is dark and creates a mysterious atmosphere whereas the symbols are colourful and artistic. The animations for winning combinations make the symbols come to life and this keeps the slot from becoming too boring. The spin speed can be adjusted for those who are impatient.
Game and Winnings
To start playing, you must wager 1-20 coins on a selected payline (playing 1 payline will open up further paylines) and then press spin. The coins range from €0.01 to €0.02 and so selecting the ‘bet max’ option will allow you to bet the maximum of €12.00 (up to 600 coins) per spin. The jackpot prize comes out at 1,000 coins of which will be multiplied by your initial bet (a max bet on a winning payline can see you win €400 for a bet of €0.40). A match of multiple symbols on a selected payline will see you win a cash pay-out of which the combinations and pay-outs can be seen on the pay table in-game, via the ‘view pays’ function.
The symbols are all theme-relevant and include a dinosaur, a harpoon, a tiger, a poison mushroom, an erupting volcano, a temple, an Amazonian warrior, an adventurer, a globe (scatter), The Grand Journey game logo (wild), a lizard and adventuring kit.
The wild acts as any wild would and will substitute for any other symbol (excluding scatter symbols) to complete a winning combination while multiplying the winnings by 2x. A wild on the middle reel will turn that whole reel wild. Matching 5 wilds will win you the 1,000 coin jackpot during normal play, but this can increase to 20,000 coins if you bet was 20 coins per line; the game also boasts about a chance to win up to 600,000 coins during free spins.
Matching three or more scatters will grant you 15 free spins of which has a progressive multiplier of an increase of 1x per spin (the second spin will give you 2x, third spin 3x etc.) of up to a 10x multiplier – the multiplier will reset to 0 if you match a winning combination and begin to increase again with each spin.
