This slot is one of the newest group of games released by Playtech which feature the ancient Greeks, but Age of the Gods is the flagship title.
The graphics are stunning with a flawless backdrop complementing the other-lordly magnificence of the gods that can be found on the gameboard.
You’ll be playing on 5 reels which contain 20 paylines and a coin value which can be set between 0.01 and 25.00. This provides a total max bet of 500, and at the opposite end of the spectrum a total min bet of 0.20.
Your God of Choice
The Greek gods were famous for trifling with the emotions of mere mortals so feel lucky that on this occasion they’ve chosen to be benevolent, and bestow on you a choice of bonuses.
All you need to do to unlock this prize is pass their test of landing three of the Age of the Gods bonus symbols on the main reels.
Once opened, the Age of the Gods bonus will present you with a choice of 20 golden coins. You’ll need to turn over the coins to try and match up images of the various gods. If you get three of a kind you’ll win the relevant bonus but if you reveal Hades, the bonus feature will end and you’ll return to the main reels.
Winning Athena will grant you nine free spins and a random multiplier of between x2 and x5. Zeus is slightly more generous, also giving nine free spins but also a multiplier that increases after every three spins and a sticky wild on the centre reel.
Poseidon is another god that hands out nine free spins but watch out for the lightening that zaps from his throat! This will turn up to five symbols wild during any spin. In the nine free spins from Hercules, the muscle bound god appears on reel 3 as a stacked wild to provide extra benefits.
After the free games described above have been played, the player will be returned to the Age of the Gods bonus screen to try and win more free turns before uncovering Hades.
If all of the above wasn’t enough to tempt you onto the reels, the mention of not one, but four progressive jackpots should have you watering at the mouth.
All of the payouts are awarded randomly so there’s a chance for anyone to win. Every spin of the reels carries the possibility of a jackpot win, even if you don’t win a regular prize on the main reels. However, although it’s entirely feasible for any bet to lead to success, the higher you play the more likely it is that you’ll be selected.
Once you’ve been picked for the jackpot game you’re guaranteed a payout of some kind – the only question is which one you’ll win.
Similar to the Age of the Gods bonus, the jackpot game will offer you a screen of 20 gold coins. Uncover three matching symbols to discover which of the jackpots you’ll win. However, don’t take too long or wander away from your screen because there’s a timer on the game and if you don’t make your pick it will decide on your behalf and automatically award one jackpot to you.
