Slot Game Theme
Disc of Athena bears an ancient Roman theme combined with a hint of Greece. The symbols on the reels offer an insight into what life was like during 180 AD and you can’t help think of the box-office hit Gladiator starring Russell Crowe when you launch this slot game. Pyramids grace the top of the screen and stretch for as far as the eye can reach. Sunset skies lay heavy above the trees that lay motionless either side of the reels.
Symbols on the reels include colosseums, Viking ships, golden disc, Athena, gladiator mask and card values 10, J, Q, K and A.
Slot Creator and Winning Potential
Bally Wulff are the inventors of this slot machine and they are no strangers to the online slots industry. The German slot creators established themselves way back in the 1950’s and have built up an impressive catalogue of slot games with various themes. The majority of slots are fantasy slot games with titles such as King of the Jungle, Black Beauty, Book of Romeo & Juliet and King & Queen.
You could get your hands on a massive 25,000,000 coins by playing Disc of Athena – five of a kind of Athena and you’ll hit the jackpot. Naturally, the more you stake, the more you can win – but even if you are not a high roller, there’s still big cash prizes to be won.
To be honest, there isn’t a great deal of slot features to get your hands on when playing the Disc of Athena slot machine – you have wilds, scatters and free spins. The golden disc symbol is your wild and every symbol on the reels (barring bonus) can be replaced by this to help create winning combinations. Strangely enough, the wild is also the scatter – which has other features to it.
Three or more wild/scatter symbols will award 10 free spins. Before your free spins commence, a bonus symbol will be chosen and this will have the potential to award more wins.
Gamble feature is a simple money ladder game that allows you to potentially win more cash. Any base game win will bring this into play and to take advantage, you simply click the buttons to the lower of the reels to initiate the gamble round. Click the button on the screen to try and climb the ladder – you can cash out at any time, but should you reach the bottom of the ladder – you lose everything.
We found Disc of Athena to be a medium variance slot machine without too many complicated features. The slot game focuses heavily on free spins, but triggering these will be a bit of a task. You can trial the slot game for free, but it’s basic enough for even the newest of slots players to understand. The potential to win big is there – but this will only come by triggering five of a kind of the highest paying symbols, or by triggering free spins and re-triggering them. While playing, we managed to trigger a win in almost every spin, but nothing too big – just enough to keep us topped up in our quest to search for more money.
