Ancient Greece is the setting for Gods of Olympus, a myth and legend themed slot from 1X2 Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine, this trip to the classical world comes with a pick me round and a free spins feature where all wins are doubled. Join the gods from between 20p and £50 per spin.

Gods of Olympus is another finely designed game from 1X2 Gaming – set within a pair of Parthenon-style marble pillars, the cartoon reels include A, K, Q and J symbols alongside pottery vase, sword and crossbow, a galley-style ship, a warrior’s helmet and a Greek temple. The latter is the most lucrative, awarding 700 coins for a 5-of-a-kind combination. The goddess coin is the wild, replacing all other symbols apart from the bonus and scatter.

There are 2 features on offer in Gods of Olympus. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the coin featuring the Poseidon, the god of the sea, anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the Bonus feature. If they land on the same payline, you’ll also pocket a payout of 110, 340 or 800 coins. The feature is a pick me round where you’ll be taken to a new screen and offered of a selection of 5 vases. Pick to reveal coin prizes.

Also on offer is the Free Spins feature – to trigger this, you’ll need to land 3 or more of the Zeus coin anywhere on the reels. Like Poseidon, Zeus offers a payout if the coins land on a payline. Prizes of 100, 320 and 750 coins are on offer here. Whichever way you trigger the feature, there are 10 free spins awarded. All payouts during the feature are doubled.

Similar in style to fellow 1X2 Gaming slot Gladiator of Rome, Gods of Olympus is another fine looking game. The imagery is done cartoon style and works very well, especially in combination with the traditional backing track that accompanies the action.

The features are well constructed too – they come along at fairly regular intervals but still offer enough winning chances to make things interesting. We’d put the variance in the medium range.

Classically themed slots are ten a penny. This light-hearted affair is very different from say, Playtech’s Age of the Gods which has a similar theme. Simpler in design and gameplay, Gods of Olympus offers a nice change of pace. Get lucky with the free spins and it’s still possible to bag an Olympian prize though.
