Play Journey to the West Slotss for free or real money
Chinese mythology is full of great characters and fun stories that can’t wait to be adapted into slots. One of those tales is Journey to the West: a novel produced all the way in the sixteenth century. It tells the story of Xuanzang who wandered to the western regions alongside Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing. You’ll be able to find all four stars of this tale decorating the stylish reels. And if you’re scratching your head wondering why so many characters are anthropomorphic animals? Your guess is as good as ours, dear reader.
Pragmatic Play really nailed the atmosphere of this game, all thanks to its background image. The dark background helps the two swinging lanterns shine even brighter! It also lets a few fireflies flicker in the darkness, which makes this release look even better! Personally, we liked the symbol designs of Journey to the West, but if you’re burned out on Chinese icons, you might not enjoy it as much. The symbols are a mixture of simplified Chinese letters and the four characters from the story.
You play this slot on a 5x3 board with 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right only. There’s only one special feature in the game; a free spins round. However, each time you activate it is different from before! Or it can be exactly the same, if that’s what you prefer. How is that possible, you might ask? It’s because the free spins are effectively five different types of extra turns rolled into one bonus. Before the free spins start, you will be asked to pick one of five different special features.
One of the most important thing about any kind of journeying is budgeting accordingly! And the developers give you plenty of betting options to set your total bet. You can individually change your coins per line and coin value to find your ideal wager! This allows for wagers between GBP 0.25 and GBP 125 on each spin, which is a fantastic betting spread. All of it comes packaged in Pragmatic Play’s gorgeous user interface, which combines sleek looks with versatile functionality.
This release has a great theoretical jackpot, worth 2000x your total stake. In order to win said prize, however, you have to land a full screen of Wilds while having a 5x multiplier active. So unless you have Caishen’s luck, that jackpot is going to stay theoretical! Journey to the West has a medium variance, and an RTP of 96.47%, which is above the current industry average. As a result, you’ll be able to land plenty of small and medium sized wins. Nothing life changing, but it adds up over time!

We had a lot of fun playing this slot. What can we say; we’re suckers for free spins, especially when they’re further enhanced with multipliers! Thanks to stacked symbols, you have good odds of landing awesome prizes, too. Pragmatic Play could have stopped there, but they kept adding more cool stuff. Great symbol designs. A fantastic background image with pretty animations! We could keep listing more and more things, but this review has to end sometime. Give it a go, you won’t regret it!
