Magic Journey Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play has started their journey for 2020. They have already created a roadmap of set releases until mid-March. Being 3 months ahead is great for the provider and exciting to wait for the game reveals. Greek Gods is the studio’s last game of 2019, which has interesting gameplay. Their next game release for 2020 is ‘Magic Journey’, set to release 16th January across all sites.

Magic Journey is an Asian inspired game, which is a popular choice in the casino industry. The artwork for this game is full of detail and represents the theme well. The background has temples, trees, and clouds. Along with Asian inspired detail on the reel border and small animations. I think the visuals are well made and look fantastic.

This game has a setup of 5 reels by 1 rows, this includes 8 pay lines. Magic Journey is a low variance game, due to the max win capped at 400x a spin and set RTP of 96.54%. You can bet from £0.20 – £100. The reel set is made up of one row which spins first and a 3×3 grid in the background.

Magic Journey Slot Review Symbols & Paytable

This game has 9 symbols in total, this includes 8 paying symbols. These are represented by character and animal symbols with Asian inspired details. There is also golden money respin symbol. There is no wild or scatter or main bonus feature in this game.

Magic Journey Slot Review Features

Instead, this game is formed of a 1×5 slot and a 3×3 scorecard with 8 fixed pay lines. All symbols that hit on the 1×5 reel will highlight on the scorecard. Whenever at least one of the fixed pay-lines on the scorecard is filled with highlighted symbols a respin occurs. More symbols can land on this respin which can result in more highlighted symbols on the scorecard. The respins will stop when no new pay lines are formed. This game pays a set amount for the number of filling lines.


Overall, I think this game shows a unique gameplay. However, the lack of volatility and features is a disappointment. It is a more simple game selection, so it depends on what games players gravitate towards in 2020. Be sure to try the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
