The Journey of the Sun video slots game offers a classic ancient Egyptian theme set in the desert sands of the Sahara and combines graphics of ancient monuments and animated pharaohs. The game, developed and released by the Microgaming Corporation, offers five reels with twenty five pay lines.

The main story of the game focuses on the Egyptian sun god Ra and his journey across the sky and through the underworld. He is joined by other Egyptian gods, such as Anubis, the protector of the dead, the feline goddess Bastet, and the sky god Horus.

The symbols used in the game draw on the ancient Egyptian culture, and include icons such as the pharaoh, an Egyptian bird, wolf god, and cat god, as well as the Journey of the Suns game logo and various card symbols to represent the lower paying symbols.

The Wild Ankh Symbol

The wild symbol in Journey of the Sun is represented by the golden ankh icon. This wild ankh symbol may be used to substitute any of the other symbols of the game, except for the scatter symbol. By substituting other symbols, the wild ankh symbol may be used to form the best possible winning combinations for players.

The Scatter Logo Symbol

The scatter symbol in this slots game is represented by the Journey of the Sun logo. Landing three or more of the scatter symbols in Journey of the Sun will launch the game’s free spins bonus feature. In this bonus feature, players will have to pick from among a selection of game pieces to reveal a certain number of free spins and a multiplier value.

Players will be presented with a 3 x 10 Senet board with black and white game pieces. The white game pieces will represent the number of free spins, while the black game pieces will represent the value of the free spins multiplier. Players will first choose a position for the white game piece in the first fifteen spaces, which will determine the number of free spins. Then players will place the black piece on one of the next fifteen spaces to reveal the multiplier value.

The free spins feature may be re-activated, and players will be presented with the Senet board again after the initial free spins round has been completed. When players land two or more scatter symbols on the reels, they may also be paid out scattered rewards.

Winning Combinations

Matching at least three of the symbols in Journey of the Sun from the left to the right will result in a winning combination. The highest payout to be received by matching symbols is for two thousand coins when players land five of the wild ankh symbols. All of the winning combinations and relevant payouts may be viewed in the game’s pay table.
