Latest slot release by Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play recently released a new video slot to add to their collection, called Magic Journey.

Magic Journey is an Asian-inspired slot game with reels set in an orate temple. The symbols are full of exotic characters, including monkeys, bulls, pigs, and local warriors, who will all move and interact as the reels fall into place.

Although the design is of a high quality, it is not this which sets Magic Journey apart from other slot games. Rather, it is the unique gaming feature they have created which adds a new element to spinning the reels.

Immersive experience

Pragmatic Play hope that, through this slot, players go on a magic journey of their own. The intricate design aims to make players feel immersed into the exotic landscape, and feel part of the world which has these fun characters in it.

Unique layout

Basing a slot game around an exotic landscape is not unusual, but the gameplay of Magic Journey is certainly unique. It has a 3×3 reel with 8 paylines, but the main point of interest is the one line of 5 symbols underneath it.

The 3×3 reels themselves do not spin. Instead, it is just the one line with 5 symbols that spins. You may wonder how you can then win! It is quite simple once you start playing. When you spin, symbols appear on the single row. These symbols will then highlight on the 3×3 reel, which can subsequently form a winning combination.

When you find a winning payline, or get the central monkey symbol, you get a free respin. Also, with a win, the meter by the side of the reels will light up showing you what you have won.

There is a big winning potential on this slot as, if players find all the symbols, they could win a multiplier of up to 400x! So, although it is also a game with high volatility, there is the opportunity to win big!

“Engaging gameplay”

Melissa Summerfield, Chief Commercial Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Magic Journey is a step away from the traditional layout of a slot game, offering an exciting and easy to understand matching system which can quickly pile up big wins.

“The engaging gameplay and giant win potential give Magic Journey all the ingredients to be a hit.”
