Athena is one of the most popular Greek goddesses, since she is not only is she the goddess of war, but also the goddess of wisdom; and that is precisely what this online slot game by software developer Playtech is trying to capture. Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom is an offering in the series of Age of the Gods slots and it makes a perfect addition to this group of Greek-themed games. Like the other titles in the series, this one boasts great graphics and an overall very appealing design. In addition, Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom has an entertaining structure that can also prove to be quite rewarding, as you will see in this review. As for the symbols on the reels, these mainly include some of Athena’s accessories, such as her armor, sandals and helmet.
This brings us to the game’s setup, and starting with the layout, there’s nothing particularly unique about it worth pointing out. It’s just your standard grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. And it comes with a total number of 20 paylines. The paylines are not fixed, by the way, so you will have the ability to regulate them as you see fit. This obviously will also affect the betting range, making it even more flexible. In fact, you will find stakes here span from a minimum of only 1p per single spin, and they reach a maximum bet of £1000 per spin.
If you have played other online slot games in this series, you know that they all feature the opportunity to win one of their four progressive jackpots. This opportunity, however, is rewarded fully at random. But if you want to increase your chances of landing it anyway, you can always just play at higher stakes. If you do get so lucky, you will head over to a new screen filled with gold coins. Keep on picking coins until you have matched three identical ones. This will award you the respective jackpot.
Naturally, Athena is the game’s Wild and she can only appear on the three middle reels 2, 3 and 4. In addition, she will be able to replace any of the regular symbols to help complete winning sequences. But the Wild will not have the capacity to replace the game’s Scatter.
Speaking of the Scatter, notice that it comes in the form of Athena’s owl, which has also become another symbol of wisdom. What’s more important in the context of this game is that the Scatter can help you trigger the Freespins feature. This is perhaps the main attraction of Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom, and unlike the Wild symbol, the Scatter can actually appear on any of the five reels. Only you will have to land 3, 4 or 5 of these icons during the same time for the bonus round to begin. Once this happens, you will even get the chance to select the type of bonus you would like to play.
For example, you can choose the option with the helmet, which will reward you with 7 freespins and a 4x multiplier on your winnings. Then you can also opt for the armor and receive 14 freespins, instead – only these will come with a 2x multiplier on your freespins winnings. Last but not least, you can choose the Gorgoneion symbol, which will only offer you 10 freespins.
Note that in each option, the symbol you selected will replace the other two during the feature. On the downside, though, you won’t be able to retrigger the Freespins bonus.
The Freespins round in Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom makes this an exceptionally exciting offering. Not to mention how rewarding this feature can turn out to be thanks to the game’s medium to high variance.
