Slot Details

Rise of Athena is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols landing on a line from left to right only. You can face the fierce goddess on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility (6/10) with an RTP of 96.20%. Beware, lower RTP settings of 94.20% or 91.20% can be used on this slot, always check the help file to find out which version you will be playing.

Athena’s temple, the Parthenon, together with her golden statue provides the background to a semi-translucent game window that is held in a golden frame. Marbled card royals adorned with olive branches and a number of items and characters associated with the Goddess of War populate the reels to a heart-wrenching soundtrack with drawn crescendos on winning spins.

The pay symbols start at the low end with marbled card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 2x to 6x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by an ancient scroll, a smoking vase, Athena’s helmet, her horse Pegasus and the goddess herself. Hit five on a line to win 10x to 150x your bet.

An ancient coin marked with ‘W’ is the wild symbol, changing in colours based on the random multiplier it will reveal – bronze for x1, silver for x2 and gold for x3. It appears on reels two to four only and substitutes for all regular pay symbols. More than one in a combo will be multiplied by each other, giving a potential for a maximum x27 multiplier. Athena’s bird, the owl, serves as the scatter.

Rise of Athena Slot Features

While Athena is known as the Goddess of wisdom, handicraft and warfare, she is best known for the latter. Depicted as a fierce and ruthless warrior in Greek mythology, she was Zeus’ favourite daughter although she had no mother since she sprang directly from his head in fully grown and clothed in armour. With the historical part cleared up, let’s take a look at what features Play’n GO included on this godly creation.

Rise of Athena Free Spins

The wild symbol is at the core of the action in the base game and free spins as it can lead to wins in excess of 4,000 times your bet in a single spin when three land with an x3 multiplier on a line together with Athena. They turn even more potent in the free spins as they become semi-sticky with a decreasing multiplier.

Hitting three or more owl scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 12 free spins which cannot be retriggered. Plus, a coin win of 1x, 20x and 500x your bet is awarded for three, four and five respectively. During the feature, any wild landing will unveil a random multiplier of x1, x2 or x3. They will be locked in place and their multiplier reduced by x1 on each subsequent free spin. They will disappear after it reaches x1.

Final Verdict

After Book of Dead, Play’n GO has become somewhat of a specialist for volatile 10-liners with big win potential. They are not super elaborate and mostly not brimming with bonus features but provide exhilarating rollercoaster rides, especially for hardcore players. Rise of Athena fits perfectly into that niche Play’n GO has been dominating. Just like Book of Dead or Doom of Dead, it has only one distinct feature that can pack a really heavy punch on a good day.
