Don’t let the name fool you, as Quest to the West by BetSoft is actually an Asian inspired slot game. The game offers us 5 reels, 3 rows, and 25 winning ways. The amazing design of landscapes combined with some great graphics will definitely catch your attention. To keep your attention, the provider has included some awesome features that are fairly rewarding as well.
The Asian theme is one of the top three used themes in the gaming industry, which is why providers tend to make similar games to one another. This is a game that definitely does not follow the same repetitive pattern and it shows that the provider wanted to make a game that will stand out from the rest. They offered us some amazing graphics and a picture that really does say a thousand words.
In the background are beautiful cliffs with waterfalls streaming down them. There is a classic Asian castle on top of one, which is one of the rare examples of their culture used in this game. There are also horses, people, and some really pretty trees growing from stone.
The soundtrack is another segment that contributes to the Asian feel. It consists of string instruments that are both calming and cheerful. The symbols are just as interesting as the background and include the regular colorful royals as the low paid symbols. Then there are lotus flowers, horses, dragons, pigs, warriors, and a prince as the highest paying symbol. The game’s wild symbol is represented by a monkey.
This is a medium volatility game which is perfect for long term play. The betting range is decent as well with the minimum bet set at 0,04 and the maximum at 80 coins per spin. The game has a very impressive RTP which is set at 97, 53%. The payouts will satisfy as well and players have the chance to win up to 1260 times the take in a single spin.
When it comes to the features, there are not that many of them, but they sure as hell are rewarding. Everything revolves around one symbol which is the Monkey King wild symbol. This might sound boring, but the provider made sure to spice things up a bit.
The wild can appear just like regular where it does its duty of replacing all other symbols of the game. But that is not all, as the game offers a Walking Wilds feature that is triggered randomly. The wild symbol moves on every spin until it falls off the grid, hopefully creating winning combinations on every move. Every time the wild symbol moves a meter to the left of the reels is filled by one level. Once the player has collected 15 monkeys the Meter of the Heavens feature is triggered. The player will then receive a prize of 1000 times the stake, which is quite amazing.
Last but not least, is the Quest to the West feature that is triggered when the player lands at least 3 wild symbols anywhere on the reels. The triggering monkey symbols will move to the left and the feature will end once they disappear. The Walking Wilds feature remains active which means that you could just land another walking wild and increase the number of free spins.
Overall, the game is quite an impressive one, not that anything else was expected from out trusty provider. They managed to create a unique game and a different perspective on the Asian theme. The main character which is the monkey will for sure put a smile on our faces, not only for the funny looks but for the rewards that it brings with.
