Based on one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature, Journey to the West, Quest to the West is a video slot coming from the Betsoft creative kitchen. The game was released in 2020, and just like its title says, it takes you on a quest where you can unearth hidden riches across 5 reels and 25 paylines. The maximum possible payout stands at 1,260x the total bet.
The slot features the cloud-riding Monkey King that is responsible for all bonus features you can benefit from, including Walking Wilds, Respins and the Meter of the Heavens, where you can win a fixed payout worth 1,000x the bet. In terms of visuals and sounds, Quest to the West is a classic Asian-themed slot with its graphics and audio serving the theme of the game well.

On the reels, you will see high-paying theme-related symbols depicted as the characters from the book, including Tang Sanzang, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing. Mid-value symbols are represented as the golden dragon, white horse and lotus flower, while the rest of positions are populated by playing card icons. Sun Wukong, also known as the Monkey King, assumes the role of Wild. The game features no Scatter.
How to Play
The game uses 5 reels and 25 paylines. It is perfect for penny punters as the minimum bet is set quite low, at $0.02 per spin only, while high-rollers won’t be disappointed either since the maximum wager is $80 per spin. All you need to do to get the reels spinning is choose the total bet and push the Spin button.
The developer has also included the Autoplay option, thus enabling players to enjoy up to 100 automatic turns.
To win a prize, you have to land at least three matching symbols on a payline in succession left to right.
Strategy & Tips
Keep an eye on Monkey King Wild as it will replace all other symbols to complete your winnings combos. Once you land at least 3 Wilds anywhere in view, the Quest of the West feature is triggered. Wilds become Walking Wilds and move to the left while awarding respins.
Each time Monkey King Wild walks of the reels, it will contribute to the Meter of the Heavens by one level. If you manage to fill it up with 15 Wilds, you are granted 1,000x the bet. Respins continue as long as Wilds are present on the reels.
Betsoft has developed Quest of the West mobile-ready, so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your home or on the go. Anyways, a payout of 1,260x the bet is available, so join the Monkey King and make it yours.
