Kneel Before Him
In Greek mythology, there’s an almost never-ending list of gods and deities who are imbued with special powers and lover nothing more than to create mischief in the mortal world. But of them all, none is as all-commanding and omnipotent as Zeus himself, the god of all gods, and this is why he has the honour of a game all to himself.
You’ll be playing on 5 reels which are laid out in the standard configuration of 5×3 and includes 25 paylines. These are fixed so cannot be reduced down if you are trying to lower the overall stake.
However, you can adjust the amount you bet per line and this is a very effective way of controlling the budget and making sure you don’t blow all your money in just a single spin! The minimum amount you can bet per line is 0.01 and the maximum sum is 100.00.
However, don’t forget that these figures are per line and not overall, so if you don’t check the total bet you could be in for a nasty shock! The total min bet is 0.25 while the total max bet is an eye-watering 2500.00, perfect for the high rollers looking for a big win.
Unlike the other Age of the Gods slots, this title only features Zeus so this means that you won’t get the same choice of bonus features that can be seen elsewhere.
That doesn’t mean that this game isn’t worth playing however as you can still rack up a tidy sum from the freebies on offer.
To access the locked bonus rounds you’ll first need to spin three of the special scatter symbols on the reels. As well as giving you the standard scatter win, landing these tiles will also grant you entry to the bonus feature.
Here you’ll be given 10 free games that begin with a basic multiplier. For every two games that pass your multiplier will increase by 1. As an extra benefit you’ll get an additional wild during these spins, making it easier to get a matching line. These free games cannot be retriggered during bonus play.
Back in the main game, as well as the bonus game you’ll also have the wild. Represented by the musclebound Zeus himself, this Greek god stares moodily into the distance while simultaneously standing in for the other symbols on the reels. The only symbol that the wild can’t stand in for is the scatter.
Hit the Big Time
In keeping with all of the other games in the Age of the Gods series, King of Olympus also offers a lucrative bonus round.
Every player can qualify for this, even if they haven’t won on the main reels. The more you bet the better your chances of being picked for the bonus game but in theory no one is excluded. Once you’ve been chosen for the bonus game you’re guaranteed a win, even if you don’t yet know what it might be.
There’s Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power jackpots and you’ll find out which one you’ve won by turning over a series of gold coins. Out of a screen of 20 it’s up to you which ones you pick, but one you have three that match your fate is sealed. All of the jackpots are allocated randomly so there’s always a chance that you’ll be in for a top prize.
The Greek gods weren’t always renowned for their kindness to mortals but in Age of the Gods: King of Olympus developer Playtech have created a very benevolent deity. With bonus features and jackpots waiting to be won, this is a slot that can be enjoyed by players of all levels of experience, even total newbies.
