Age of the Gods: King of Olympus
Brace for an encounter with mighty Zeus on the slot from Playtech. Age of the Gods: King of Olympus brings the ruler of the heavenly realm onto a set of slot reels with wild substitutions, a free spins round with increasing win multipliers and a jackpot bonus game that could lead to wins of up to 600 times your bet on a single spin or the trigger of one of four progressive jackpots with potentially life-changing payouts.
Age of the Gods: King of Olympus is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 25 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Two wild symbols will pay a consolation prize. You can ascend to the Mount Olympus on desktop or mobile from 0.25 to 10 credits per spin. The game has medium variance with an RTP of 94.98%.
Opening the game will take you to the heavenly realm that has become a stalwart of Greek mythology and was purportedly the home of the Twelve Olympians with Zeus as the leader of the mighty deities. He appears in an imposing manner on the reels wielding his power as the wild symbol. Other icons from the mythological tales complete the pay symbols spinning on a finely ornamented game window.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from J through to A in Greek style, awarding 1.25x to 4x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by ancient amphoras, harps, a Greek trireme, Zeus’ eagle Aetos Dios and the divine winged horse Pegasus. Hit five on a line to win 6x to 40x your stake,
Zeus himself is the wild and top-paying symbol, substituting for all regular symbols and yielding 120x your bet for five. A Greek pantheon marked with ZEUS acts as the scatter. Land two, three, four or five in one spin for a payout of 1x, 3x, 10x and 100x your total stake.
Age of the Gods: King of Olympus Slot Features
According to Greek mythology, Zeus was the leader of the Twelve Olympians and the ruler of the Olympus. You would expect that any game developer dedicating a slot to the mighty god would create an intense gameplay with ample random and bonus feature to match the powers bestowed on Zeus. However, Playtech went for a rather tame design that comes with a free spins round only, and yes, the obligatory jackpot bonus game since it is part of the series.
Hitting three to five scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 10 Free Spins with a progressive multiplier, which cannot be retriggered. The round starts off with an x2 win multiplier that will increase by x1 on every second spin, leading to an x5 multiplier for free spins 9 and 10. What’s more, a Zeus wild will be placed on the centre of reel three and will stay locked throughout the feature, providing more potential to score a win.
The Jackpot bonus game can be triggered on any paid spin in the base game. The higher the bet, the higher your chance to enter the bonus game, with a guaranteed win of one of the four progressive jackpots – Power with minimum 50 credits, Extra Power with minimum 500 credits, Super Power with minimum 5,000 credits, and Ultimate Power with minimum 100,000 credits. The 20 reel positions are covered by gold coins and the aim is to pick coins until three matching jackpot symbols are revealed.
There are about a dozen titles in the Age of the Gods series and King of Olympus looks like one of the weaker games. There is little else going for it other than the potential to trigger one of the four jackpots. The odd free spins round in between is more like a balance stabilizer than a source of mega wins. Scoring a full line of wild Zeus symbols on an x5 multiplier in the free spins will yield 600x bet and that is about as far as it goes on this game.
