West Journey Treasure Hunt

West Journey Treasure Hunt is an online slots game which is loosely based on the 16th century Chinese novel ‘Journey to the West’. This novel inspired the 1970s Japanese TV series Monkey, which is sure to be familiar to many fans of fruit machines who grew up during the 70s and 80s. Developed by High 5 games, there is plenty in this game to keep anyone who likes playing slots online happy.

About the Game

West Journey Treasure Hunt has five reels, three rows and 40 fixed paylines of action on offer, with the reels floating in front of a suitably Oriental valley scene which perfectly matches the theme of the game. As is typical of many online casino slots games, the game’s lower value symbols are numbers and letters, with 10, J, Q, K and A all being seen on the reels.

The higher value symbols on the reels are the characters from the novel/TV series. If you spent time watching Monkey as a child, then you can probably identify Monkey himself, as well as Pigsy, Tripitaka and Sandy. The game’s wild symbol is easy enough to identify, as it is simply the word ‘wild’ written in gold. This can substitute for all other symbols on the reels to create winning combinations, apart from the distinctive red, gold and green scatter symbol.

There is only one bonus feature for players to enjoy in this game, which is Free Spins. You can receive eight free spins when three full stacks of scatter symbols land on the second, third and fourth reel. You need to pick one of the scatters to reveal a stacked high-value symbol which will help you during the free spins.
