Discover the true power of Zeus, the god of all gods in this new slot machine by Playtech software. Age of the Gods: King of Olympus is yet another title in the brand spanking new video slot franchise by the popular slot machine maker, meaning that spinners can rightfully expect plenty of epic spinning action straight from the Pantheon of Mount Olympus
This time round, however, there is only one star of the show – the big daddy, the head honcho, the king of Olympus himself: Zeus. That does mean that there isn't the same range of bonus game variety in comparison to other slot machines in the series, but players can still hope for some wins from heaven with 25 paylines and a standard play jackpot of 300,000 as well as the usual Age of the Gods progressive jackpots.
There are loads of different gods, deities and demi-gods in the stories of Ancient Greek mythology, but none quite run the show like Zeus. The god of thunder and the sky is the leading figure of Mount Olympus and the overseer of all other gods, renowned for his power, fatherly nature and occasional outburst of bad temper! This slot machine reveals all of this almighty immortal character's most powerful attributes with a depiction of Zeus as some sort of grey-haired sage with superhuman strength and prowess, looking over the rest of the reels with firm and assured authority.
The rest of the reels incorporate a number of artefacts and objects from Ancient Greek culture such as clay vases, golden lyres and magnificent sailing vessels. However, the most beautiful icons of all depict a stunning eagle (often used as a symbol for Zeus) and the winged horse Pegasus, who served Zeus by delivering thunder and lightning from Olympus.
In strictly visual terms, this slot machine is up there with the best of them thanks to some awesome artwork. The colour scheme includes deep night sky blue as well as bright lightning yellow and orange to give the game a big blockbuster style appearance. Well, we would expect nothing less for a slot machine about the king of gods!
Age of Gods: King of Olympus gives spinners every chance to spin a winner thanks to the 25 paylines that are permanently placed on the 5 reels. Plus, those wins could be very big with a very hefty range of wagering options available for punters to choose from, as such: 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04, 0.05, 0.06, 0.08, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25, 0.30, 0.40, 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, 2.00, 5.00, 10.00, 20.00, 25.00, 50.00, 75.00 and 100.00.
Players can find most of their wins by lining up rows of the same symbols from left to right along any of the 25 paylines. This will award a line bet multiplier from the following paytable:
This slot machine may not offer the same variety of bonus gameplay features as other slot machines in the Age of the Gods series, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't throw up any special spinning action. First of all, there is a standard wild icon in the base game – as depicted by Zeus himself – which will substitute for all other icons to complete wins, except for one. That exempt symbol is the “Zeus” logo scatter icon which will award total bet multiplier prizes of 1x, 3x, 10x and 100x whenever two or more appear in any position on the reels.
What's more, should three or more scatter symbols appear during a single spin, players will be treated to 10 free spins with a multiplier that starts at x2 and which will increase by 1 with every 2 free spins. On top of that, these free spins include an extra Zeus wild symbol that is locked to the middle position of the middle reel for the entirety of the bonus game.
As with every title in the Age of the Gods series, King of Olympus has a special bonus game that is awarded completely at random. This pick'em style feature gives punters the chance to win one of four progressive jackpots for some truly heavenly wins.
Admittedly, this slot machine isn't quite as jam-packed with special gameplay elements in comparison to others from the same franchise. However, while this may turn some players off, Age of the Gods: King of Olympus is sure to appeal to video slot players who like to keep in relatively simple when it comes to extra features.
