When you look at the screen you will see it is relatively uncluttered, and the important information is easy to find. At the right towards the top there are three small lines that give you access to a menu that contains the paytable and more information about the game.
Above these are links to social media, such as Twitter, where you can share wonderful moments of your Epic Journey with your friends and followers. At the bottom of the screen at the right you will find the Spin button, which begins the game. At the bottom left is a panel that tells you how much is staked on each spin, with handy arrows at the side where the wager can be adjusted up or down.
To the right of this is the Autoplay feature. Click on this to reveal a panel where you can set the game in motion for the desired number of spins and choose various other settings. If you press on the spacebar, you can speed up the game by putting it in turbo mode.
There are four heroes in Epic Journey, and each one is an extra-large Wild that will help you win even more rewards. Line up five giant Wilds for a mighty 1000x payout on your total bet. The game also features an entertaining array of random elements to make things more interesting and bring more wins your way. Watch out for the Epic Staff, which will tumble across the screen, sending the reels into a frenzy that can bring you more prizes.
The Nudge is another fun addition that can wiggle the reels into position to ensure further wins. Then there are Mega Tiles, which being really large can help usher in some large rewards, and Magic Reels, where the best symbols go to work - they will transform into the ones that pay the most.
