The Age of Gods series of progressive jackpot games is one of the most successful in the online casino world. It currently spans over ten titles, two of which heavily feature Mount Olympus and the gods of Greek mythology who according to legend reside there.
Playtech is now adding a third Olympus-themed slot to their library, as Age of Gods: Rulers of Olympus springs up at gambling websites this month. Aside from the obvious references to the Greek gods which frequently appear in such games, there are plenty of nifty new features to get excited about.
The Rulers of Olympus
In many ways, the new Playtech slot features the same kinds of payline structures, and wagering ranges frequently found in the series. There are 5 reels and 25 paylines to the latest game in the franchise, and this means a predictable wagering range of 25p up to £500 is to be expected.
Aside from wild symbols – which naturally substitute for all but scatters – there is a Thunderbolt Bonus which can promote wins. It comes to the forefront when bonus symbols appear on the fifth and final reel. This feature will throw a few extra wild symbols onto the reels, with as many as seven of them ramping up the odds of winning.
Two Free Game Features
Two free game bonus rounds have been worked into the design of Age of Gods: Rulers of Olympus. The first of these is the Battle for Power round. This occurs when Hera and Zeus appear on the same row. Aside from a Shifting Wilds bonus (which sees the gods walk in opposite directions during re-spins), extra wilds will be spread across the reels and free spins granted until Hera is defeated by Zeus.
An Olympus Free Games bonus can be triggered by landing a scatter on the fifth reel. It can offer 7 free spins, and only high-paying god and goddess icons will appear on the reels during this round. The free spin bonus is played over an extended reel set which features 50 paylines.
Brand New Game, Same Old Jackpots
The same progressive jackpot cash prizes which can be won in other Age of Gods slots appear in Rulers of Olympus. These are triggered at random and promise prizes which can rise as high as several hundred thousand pounds via a simple click and win feature.
Like the other Playtech slots in this series, Age of Gods: Rulers of Olympus is available to play at all top online gambling venues offering slots from this provider.
