Theme – join the Greek god of the sun

Theme: Ancient Greek Mythology

High Value Symbol: Helios

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

With an ancient Greek mythology theme, The Divine Riches Helios slot is based on the ancient Greek god of the sun and personification (Helios). Bright and colourful visually, it’s set in the heavens and has a cartoon feel. You will see the powerful, young Helios to the left of the reels who boasts some impressive arms.

The soundtrack is rhythmic and better than the visuals. Graphically, it’s not as sharp as the likes of Playtech’s Age of the Gods or NetEnt’s Divine Fortune Megaways for example. It resembles WMS’ land-based classic, Zeus (which is also available online).

On the reels you will see low value diamond, club, heart and spade symbols. Then you have grapes, vases, harps, horse heads and Helios. Helios is the best paying symbol with 3, 4 or 5 in combination paying 1.5, 5 or 10 x your total stake.

Importantly, Helios symbols pay both ways meaning from left to right and right to left. You will also see a wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the free spins scatter. There are also bonus token symbols which can trigger the Blazing Bonus feature (more details below).

Divine Riches Helios Mobile

divine-riches-helios-mobile-slot

Created by Just For The Win using HTML5 technology, Divine Riches Helios is playable on mobile, laptop, PC and tablet devices. The 5×4 setup lends itself to all kinds of devices, including mobiles using iOS and Android technology. As always, a bigger screen is always better in my opinion.

Divine Riches Helios Bonus Features

The Divine Riches Helios slot has 3 bonus features. Offering free spins with upgrading symbols, the main attraction is the Blazing Bonus feature where you can win 1 of 4 fixed jackpots. The Divine Jackpot is worth 5,000 x bet.

Blazing Bonus feature feature

divine-riches-helios-slot-blazing-bonus-feature

Look out for bonus token symbols landing on the reels. Randomly, they can trigger the Blazing Bonus feature. You will be taken to a new screen where you make picks. 4 types of symbols can appear: Divine, Mega, Major and Big.

You need to reveal 3 of the same symbol to win the corresponding jackpot/cash prize. It’s a bit like the Jackpot feature in any of the Age of the Gods series slots. Here’s what each of the fixed jackpots will award you:

Jackpot Prize
Divine 5,000 x stake
Mega 200 x stake
Major 40 x stake
Big 15 x stake

Free Spins feature

divine-riches-helios-slot-free-spins-feature

The Free Spins feature is played when 3, 4 or 5 free spins scatters land anywhere on the reels. 8, 12 or 16 free spins are then awarded respectively.

After every free spin, all Helios symbols that land will be collected. When you collect 12 Helios symbols, the Hand of Helios feature is triggered. Any collected Helios symbols in addition to the initial 12 could towards the next trigger of the feature.

Basically, a high value symbol upgrades to the next more valuable symbol. Every time you activate the Hand of Helios feature, 2 additional free spins are awarded. This means up 8 extra free spins can be won taking your potential total to 24.

Originality








Design wise, the Divine Riches Helios slot is well designed and has a land-based feel to it visually. When you get a win, the Sun God shouts out and encourages you.

In terms of the gameplay, the free spins is all about collecting Helios symbol as this upgrades the other high value symbols. The aim is to play with as many Helios symbols as possible. That said, a screen full of Helios symbols will pay 400 x your total stake.

The biggest wins will undoubtedly come from the Blazing Bonus feature. The Divine Jackpot is the only 1 of note with a 5,000 x stake prize awarded if you win it. Whilst this figure is good, many other Microgaming slots offer fixed jackpots. Games like Game of Thrones: Power Stacks also have 5,000 x bet jackpots.

The difference with Divine Riches Helios is that there’s not much else besides the Divine Jackpot. If you compare to Relax Gaming’s Helios’ Fury, there’s more in the way of bonus features as well as a higher RTP rate and 50,000 x stake max wins.

Fan of ancient Greek mythology slots? Apollo Pays Megaways by Big Time Gaming would be my recommendation. With a high 96.56% RTP rate, it comes with god-like max win potential up to 116,030 x stake.

Pros
  • 4 fixed jackpots up to 5,000 x bet
  • Land-based slot feel
  • Symbol upgrades in free spins
Cons
  • 5,000 x bet win only from 1 jackpot
  • Low 400 x stake max wins per spin/free spin
  • Nothing unique vs many other slots with same theme
