Oh my god! Looking at this The Grand Journey game for the very first time, it instantly reminded me of the Girls With Guns game. Everything looks almost the same, with the same overall colour scheme, with the jungle background scenario, and the unmistakable Stacked Wilds on the reels. I have already lost count on how many of such similar games there are in Microgaming list! A thousand games perhaps? Hmm, just kidding. Okay, I must admit, the graphics and the presentation of the game are all acceptable, nothing much to complain about, except for the cloning part. I guess some things will never change.

The logo 'The Grand Journey' is the Wild symbol, paying a very low 33.3x the total bet for 5 of them, is stacked on all reels, doubles all wins with it, and substitutes for other symbols except the Scatter symbol. Thank god it isn't one more of those typical dumb Wild symbols. The Globe is the Scatter symbol, paying the usual 100x the total bet for 5 of them, and getting 3 or more Scatters trigger 15 free spins with Increasing Multipliers of 2x to 10x. A non-winning free spin increases the multiplier by +1, but a winning free spin resets the multiplier back to 1x. The Free Spins game cannot be retriggered. Argh!

The Mole is an Extra Wild symbol, appearing only on reel 3, and expands into a Wild Reel with any winning combinations. It also appears during the free spins. As for the other symbols, the Man pays 16.6x, the Woman pays 10x, and the rest pay from 5x to 1.1x, all per total bet for 5 of each kind. For a 30-paylines game, this paytable is very low.
What more can I say about this The Grand Journey game? It feels like playing Girls With Guns Jungle Heat game, and the game play is no different from the so many other similar games. If you've played one game, you've played all of them, basically. Well, not exactly, because I couldn't get any decent wins from this game, unlike in the other games. The Free Spins games paid 14x, 6x, 13x and 11x my bet amount, in that order, so how on earth to like it?! The payouts were all simply horrible and blardy low, but honestly speaking, I am not surprised at all!
The Grand Journey slot it is Microgaming game. I played it only couple of times, because personally does not think that it is very interesting game, and also I do not like some other not big things.

Game looks regular for Microgaming slots, like always from not very new games by Microgaming you could expect decent animations, sounds, pictures, but unfortunately nothing really impressive. There is 30 paylines on this game.

Base game here is not boring at all, and almost same interesting as freespins, I do like this. Stacked wilds on this game appear on all reels, and also double wins, so it is just really great to have wilds on reels. But here comes very big problem for me - I am not very happy when slot has stacked wilds, and there is lack of lines. Stacked wilds and only 30 paylines - well, it is really boring and annoying, why not make there at least 100 lines - will be much more interesting to play. Also on reel 3 you could get expanding wild, but for some reason this wild do not double win when substituting. Quite strange decision. Payouts are not very high, but decent, and with stacked wilds you could earn decent amount of money in short period of time, if you have lucky streak.

Freespins feature can be triggered by 3 or more scatters. You will have 15 freespins with trail multiplier. Each non winning spin increase multiplier by 1x (up to 10x), and each winning spin resets multiplier. Can't say that I like this feature, for me it is boring and useless. And my observations covered by my results - 3 freespins features, and best result nearly 50 x total bet.

Never had wins over 100 x total bet on this game. I do not like freespins features (this trailing multiplier not nice for me), and I did not like that there is only 30 paylines.
Only 30 paylines this is bad. And also I am not big fan of trailing multiplier during FS.

The Grand Journey is a video slot consisting of 30 paylines going prehistoric! I'm actually impressed for the most part about how everything looks in this video slot. Dinosaurs, volcanoes, sabre tooth tigers.....it all adds up on here. The idea of putting stacked wilds on here is a great idea but...they also made this better by having everything pay 2x for these substitutes. In addition to these cool stacks there is another wild to look out for, the Drill wild on reel 3.

The animations are pretty awesome for this symbol in any position on Reel 3, drilling through the full reel as if it's digging through an underground tunnel. The final piece of self-satisfaction can be seen in the 15 Free spins, triggered for 3 Globes. It's Free spins by progressive multipliers, if I hit nothing on every free spin it increases the multiplier. I usually love this if it goes to about 6x and it hits something beautiful then it pays very well....although when a free spin pays out, it will reset the current multiplier back to 1x unfortunately! On average, hitting about $30 on a 3 coin triggering bet isn't so bad for this feature!
Personally this video slot really needs to be 243 ways to fully receive a bunch of winnings. In my opinion, the Wild drill symbol to drill through the 3rd reel isn't very helpful. Most of what I see for this symbol doesn't contribute to my combinations. Everytime it appears there aren't any symbols chaining together with this drill wild. I gotten only this twice for this drill wild symbol to appear chained to my combinations but mostly it isn't very helpful.

The 15 Free spins can be wasteful especially with what I saw. My last 3 Free spins were starting on 5x and when they played out they increased in multipliers per no combinations. The last free spin had 8x that didn't hit anything! Wasting free spins on good multipliers were some of the things I hate to see in features!
