Magic Journey Slot Review (Pragmatic Play)

Magic Journey SlotMagic Journey draws a lot of its inspiration from Chinese culture and legends. The Main legend in this game is the monkey and pig men who work together with Buddhist monks to bring you unlimited entertainment.  

For Magic Journey, Pragmatic Play uses a 3-reel setup and a total of 8 active lines. Wins go to as high as 400xs per single spin. Free spins are also present in this slot to bring you additional winning combinations.

Betting and Prizes

To place a wager on Magic Journey, you will need between $0.20, and $100 per spin.

Given the highest pay that is capped at 400xs, this slot does not seem like a game with high payout potential. However, if you are lucky enough, you can walk away with the maximum payout of 400xs which is $40,000 per spin.

Note that the slot is highly volatile, although Pragmatic Play offers an RTP of 96.54% to players.

Magic Journey Slot Features

Personally, I find this slot a little unusual. The main game area is created with 3x3 symbols that are also fixed. There is a horizontal reel located on the bottom area of the game and this is what brings you winning symbols.

On the top area, you will find 9 positions that mark the 9 characters.

Any time these characters show up at the spinning horizontal reel, you can be able to activate the slot characters. The more active they are, the easy it will be to form winning combinations. After that, you can be in a position to get the re-spins.  

I love the Monkey symbol that comes in handy when you are looking for a way to triggers a re-spin. This is what you actually use for re-spin as long as it’s present on the reels.

Theme & Design

The story in Magic Journey is not a new one as we have already seen a number of slot games using this storyline. It’s an interesting story between the monkey king and pig men plus a couple of legendary Chinese heroes.

Actually, on other slots that have borrowed this theme, the games are better designed.

Pragmatic Play decided to set up the slot game on 3 reels which is a little unusual. Regardless of this flaw, the slot game does alright when it comes to design. In fact, at first, you would think you are playing a 5-reel title.

Most symbols are represented by a number of characters used in the story. Obviously, you will get images like Master Tang and Nezha, Monkey King, Princess Iron Fan, Bull Demon King, a Pig Man, Sha Wujing, and Hai Long Wang.


I love the excellent graphics that Pragmatic Play has used on this lt. The RTP is also good and it is within the normal market range. Magic Journey uses a very unique way through which you can form winning combinations.

However, the slot’s low-payout potential (max of 400xs), combined with its high variance can deter players from it.
