Join Poseidon, Greek God of the Sea, in Tridentia, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Blueprint Gaming. Highlights here include wilds that expand to fill whole reels whenever they hit as well as a bonus round that awards 12 free spins with symbol upgrades. Play, on all devices, from between 10p and £100 per spin.
The design in Tridentia is very nicely done, combining the underwater and ancient Greek themes rather well. The reels are set within a pair of sunk marble columns. Joining the A to J royal values are 6 higher value symbols done in the style of a mosaic tile. You’ll see coins, vases, galleys, dolphins and the winged horse Pegasus spinning around the reels. The best of these tiles is the golden trident which pays 10, 25 or 50 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
Helping to create those winning combinations is the bearded figure of Poseidon who is the game’s wild – he substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter. Whenever Poseidon lands, he expands and turns the whole of that reel wild.
The Acropolis-style building is the scatter. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels will get you an award of 2, 20 or 50 times your stake as well as triggering the game’s Free Games feature. On offer here are 12 free spins. As well as performing his usual expanding wild functions, Poseidon also delivers upgrades to the other higher value stacked symbols on that free spin.
For example, if you land an expanding wild alongside a stack of coin symbols they will upgrade and turn into vases. Extra free spins are added to your total whenever Poseidon lands too – hit 1, 2 or 3 wilds and 1, 3 or 5 extra free spins are added to your tally.
Finally, Tridentia is part of the Jackpot King network – this means that 5 Jackpot King symbols allows you to spin the reels to collect crowns. The more crowns you collect, the bigger the reward. If you manage to collect 15, you’ll enter the Wheel King – this is a tombola style wheel where bigger stake multipliers can be won. You can also win the progressive jackpot which is worth 7 figures!
Tridentia is a fine-looking game. It’s a bit of a surprise that Blueprint Gaming has kept a generic bangs and bleeps style backing track rather than something more in keeping with the ancient theme though. The gameplay here is very simple but that’s no bad thing. The expanding wilds, free spins and symbol upgrades are very solid.
This ancient-themed slot works well, combining good looks with some simple but entertaining extras. If you like the myth and legend theme then Tridentia is well worth your time – I also recommend you try Playson’s God of Wild Sea and Novomatic’s Mighty Trident as they both feature Poseidon.
