Journey of the Gods - Introduction
2018 has undoubtedly been a good year for Blueprint Gaming, dominating with a steady flow of successful Megaways titles such as Vikings Unleashed, Diamond Mine, and Jackpot Genie as well as a handful of branded titles, namely The Goonies, Spinal Tap and Mars Attacks. The company also produced a few simple high variance games that didn't gain much attention outside of the community of slots enthusiasts but turned out to be some of their best. One slot in particular that we have in mind is Napoleon from which we saw several 3000x+ screenshots being posted and shared around the web.
Journey of the Gods is a Blueprint slot that shares many similarities to Napoleon. With its 5x3 layout and 10 paylines, it's a rather straightforward and uncomplicated slot that offers outstanding potential nevertheless. This one is all about the cascading mechanics where winning combinations are replaced with new symbols thus granting players a chance to win repeatedly from one spin. Playable on desktop computers as well as mobile devices, players can bet from 0.10 all the way up to 500 EUR, covering all gambling budgets.
Set in the burning heavens, players encounter the almighty ancient Greek gods in this medium to high variance serving of epic proportions. It's not the most advanced slot in regard to graphics or animations, but more a work of art with a somewhat retro feel to it.
Journey of the Gods - Symbols & Paytable
Spinning the reels you will come across A, K, Q and J playing cards as well as ancient Egyptian Ankh crosses, the Staff of Hermes, and the three Gods - Hermes, Aphrodite and Zeus. The most valuable symbol, however, is the Journey of the Gods logo with 5 across a full payline yielding 500 times your stake.
When it comes to special symbols there's only one - the Sun symbol is the wild and replaces all other symbols to help increase your chance of landing winning combinations.
Journey of the Gods - Free Spins
Triggering the free spins here is a bit different from what you would typically expect from a slot. 10 free spins are awarded when a chain of 4 subsequent cascading wins. Players can trigger as many as 50 free spins depending on the number of cascading wins with a chance to retrigger the feature during the course of the bonus.
Don't expect any explosive wins involving multipliers or wild features here. Instead, the bonus is a dragged-out battle with the Gods. As there's no limit to how many free spins that can be retriggered, that's where the potential of this slot lies.
Journey of the Gods - Conclusion
Journey of the Gods is a simple slot by the standards of Blueprint Gaming but no less entertaining as the chance for retriggers as well as the outstanding potential will keep the players on their toes throughout the session. Beware, however, as it can be a bit of a balance eater but seeing it has a max win potential of 10,000 times your stake it's well worth a shot if you're feeling lucky.
Journey of the Gods is not a revolutionary game, but it has its moments.
