Journey Of The Sun Slot Game
In ancient Egyptian culture it was believed that the sun was a God named Ra, who made an epic journey across the sky every day. The Journey of the Sun slot game is based on this myth, and it goes about representing the Egyptian Gods in a truly unique and interesting way. The ancient Egyptians probably didn’t imagine their various animal headed Gods quite so cute and adorable, but in Journey of the Sun one can’t help but want to give each Godly creature a great big cuddle.
The Graphics of the game are not the best, especially in comparison to some other modern slot games, but the artwork is done with such love and attention to detail that the player is sure to be won over in a just a few minutes of playing. The music is also worth taking note of, being both catchy and modern, but still having a distinctly Egyptian style. All in all journey of the sun is certainly a game worth taking a look at. But let’s have a closer look at its various game play mechanics and bonuses.
Game Play Mechanics
Journey of the Sun uses a 5 reel, 25 betting line system. The betting lines are manually adjustable, and may be raised or lowered between spins. As with all slot games the aim is, of course, to create matching sequences on the reels, using the same symbols. Each matching sequence will grant a payout according to the value of the symbols matched. If bonus symbols are matched bigger payouts are given, and mini-games maybe triggered.
The God symbols are the most valuable in the Journey of the Sun slot game. Match them at least 3 times to receive a payout, while a 5 match will grant a much larger payout. The lowest value symbols are the traditional 9, 10, jack, queen, king and ace of playing cards, and although these symbols have been given a slightly Egyptian based style, it is a shame the developers did not come up with something more original. Let’s have a look now at the bonus symbols offered in the game.
Bonuses And Specials
The wild symbol in the game is shown as a golden Ankh, a cross with a loop at the top. The wild symbol is an essential part of the game, able to match with all other symbols to create a matching sequence. This, of course, makes creating matching sequences a great deal easier, although it will not match with the bonus symbol. Let’s turn out attention to that bonus symbol in question, since it is key to the most unique feature in the game.
The written words Journey of the Sun are the game’s bonus symbol, and if matching at least 3 times will trigger the mini-game. The mini-game is based on an ancient Egyptian board game titled Senet, but probably really only has resemblance to this game in terms of visual appearance. The real Senet is a great deal more complicated. In the Journey of the Sun version the player must click locations on the board to make move, which will determine how much is granted in terms of payout.
