Ready to take the ride of a lifetime? Perhaps pick up a pocketful of prizes along the way? We’ve got you covered with The Big Journey, courtesy of the legendary developers over at EGT!
The Big Journey takes players on the kind of trip they might actually take, if they managed to scoop up one of the four progressive jackpots. That’s right – FOUR progressives with potentially life-changing sums of cash up for grabs! Playing for fun is always an option, but The Big Journey is another EGT classic where real-money play is just about as thrilling as it gets!
Fresh for 2017, EGT put out The Big Journey to cater to those who favor function over form. Simple, uncomplicated and stripped back, The Big Journey is a five-reel slot with three rows and a total of 10 paylines to play for. Coin values cater to all budgets across the board, The Big Journey is 100% browser-based and the action takes place across mobile and desktop devices with pure perfection!
Along with the usual playing card values, the symbols you’ll come across include the two travellers themselves, the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower and various other global landmarks. As usual, you’ll be looking to line up these landmarks and travellers for the bigger prizes on the pay table – the playing card values being their usual frugal selves!
Spicing normal play up enormously, The Big Journey also features wild symbols in the form of airplanes. But they’re not your everyday wilds, as along with taking the place of any other symbol to form winning combinations, these wilds also DOUBLE the value of the paylines they appear in! So whatever you would have won, you’ll walk away with twice as much if there’s a wild symbol in there!
In addition, there’s a scatter symbol which takes the form of a train. You’ll need to land at least two on the reels to take home an instant prize. However, land at least three at the same time and you’ll be taken over to the free spins bonus round. Along with a whopping 25 free spins to play with, every win is subject to a 2X multiplier from start to finish! And if all that wasn’t enough, you can even re-trigger the free spins at any time during the feature!
Of course, the standout special feature across many EGT games is the random progressive jackpot. Or should that be, FOUR random progressive jackpots. At any time, you may be given the opportunity to choose from 12 mystery cards. Just as soon as you’ve picked three from the same suit, you’ll be handed the corresponding cash prize! And if you know EGT, you’ll know these progressives can be huge!
Boasting an RTP of 96.06%, The Big Journey is pretty high on the variance scale. Which means that while patience is definitely a virtue, the rewards at the end of your journey could be more impressive than you ever imagined!
