The Age of the Gods is upon us! We are talking about this online video slot game by Playtech that focuses on the theme of Ancient Greek mythology. With five reels and 20 paylines, this game gives players a visually stunning game with exciting bonus games that take after the different gods and demi-gods of Ancient Greek Pantheon.
Progressive Jackpot: Yes
Age of the Gods is a five-reel slot with three reels and 20 fixed paylines. The gold-rimmed reels float against a backdrop that holds the palaces of the gods with water cascading through columns into a massive lake.
Greek mythology is arguably the best type of mythology. It’s considered to be a lot like a television soap opera, but on a more massive scale. There is treachery, deceit, and all kinds of shenanigans going on on Mount Olympus – much like your favorite soap opera.
However, the immortal characters of this drama do happen to have great powers and an ability to control the elements and determine the fates of mortal humankind.
Age of Gods taps into this mighty narrative of heavenly power to give players a spectacular online video slot where punters will come across a series of famous figures from the Pantheon of Greek myth, like the demi-god Hercules who was born with superhuman strength and Hades, the guardian of the underworld and Aphrodite the goddess of love and beauty.
However, those guys are just minor characters compared to the real head honchos such as Poseidon, the god and ruler of the sea; Athena, the fierce goddess of war, and, of course, Zeus himself, the god of all gods who ruled over the world from the sky with his mighty lightning bolt.
Age Of The Gods is actually well worth checking out, especially if you are into Greek Mythology. The variety in the bonus features is excellent and of course, there’s a progressive jackpot to add to the fun.
The higher value symbols are primarily Greek gods headed by Zeus, Poseidon, Ares and Athena among others. Achilles’ helmet also makes an appearance and then Q, K and A make up the lower values. There’s a big gold “Wild” symbol which substitutes for all others except the Age Of The Gods scatter symbol.
Pantheon Of Power
This is initiated by landing the various gods shown below in any order on an active payline. Manage this and you will receive 200x your line bet.
Age Of Gods Free Spins
Trigger this by landing three or more of the Age Of The Gods scatter symbols anywhere in view. This kicks of the free spins round and first, you must pick from the grid of gold coins on display to find three that match. This determines which of the four free games variations you get to play although if you pick three Hades, the round ends there.
Athena = nine free spins with a prize multiplier of 2x to 5x on each spin.
Zeus = nine free spins with the multiplier increasing by 1x every three spins; wild is locked in the center position of reel three for the entire round.
Poseidon = nine free spins with up to five extra wilds added to the reels after each spin.
Hercules = nine free spins with the Hercules wild stacked on reel three for the duration of the round.
When the round is finished you are taken back to the coin screen for another chance at some more free spins.
