Sneak a peek from above the clouds and gain a God’s perspective of the world of mere mortals below. It’s Age of the Gods: King of Olympus – another online slot game by Playtech in the series of Age of the Gods slots. It’s an exciting series in that it boasts superb quality graphics and always comes with a very sleek and appropriately stylized design. In addition, all games in the series offer players the opportunity to win one of the four progressive jackpots. But what makes Age of the Gods: King of Olympus different from the rest of its namesake offerings is that there’s less focus on actual Gods here. Instead, the developers have included mythical creatures, like Pegasus and Aetos Dios.
Now let’s have a look at the technical points of this online slot game. First off, the layout features the common 5 reel by 3 row grid, and it boasts slightly more paylines than some of its cousins – 25 of them, which are fixed. Therefore, players will not have the opportunity to set them to a lesser number, and with that in mind, the minimum stake in this game will set you back 25p per single spin. The range here is astronomical, leaving more than enough room for high rollers to spread their wings as well, since the maximum bet here is a staggering £2,500 per spin.
We already mentioned the progressive jackpot present in this title. It is awarded at random and the higher your stake is the higher your chance will be of triggering it will be. When that happens you will enter a new screen with a grid of coins, and you will have to select them until you reveal three matching symbols. At that point you will win one of the four jackpots.
The one God that this game does have among its symbols is Zeus – hence the title. He is also the game’s Wild symbol, able to appear in just about any position, anywhere on the reels. Furthermore, he is also incredibly lucrative and can potentially award you a whopping 3,000 times your total stake. But his main function is, of course, to substitute for the other symbols here. And in doing so, the Wild can help create more winning opportunities. However, there is one symbol that the Wild cannot replace and that is the game’s Scatter.
The Scatter can also appear in any position on the five reels. However, you will require a minimum of 3 Scatters to land simultaneously during a spin in order to trigger the Freespins feature. As a result, you will get a total of 10 free spins. In addition, these will come with an initial multiplier of 2x, and as you play, that multiplier will increase by 1x every two spins. Hence, any winnings from your 9th and 10th free spins will be subject to a 6x multiplier.
What’s more, the Wild will also become sticky on the middle position of reel 3. And it will remain there until the end of the bonus round. The bad news is that you will not be able to retrigger the Freespins feature.
The setup and structure in Age of the Gods: King of Olympus is rather simplistic. Most of the action revolves around the one bonus feature and there’s nothing particularly unique about it that would make it stand out. All in all, it’s a decent medium variance offering from software developer Playtech with great visuals.
