Helena is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Novomatic. Available to play from 40p to £80 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the game is based on Helena, otherwise known as Helen of Troy, who is the daughter of Zeus – it has a Greek mythology theme.

Helena was deemed the most beautiful woman of the ancient Greek world – you are taken back in time where her glittering fate was written in the stars. With a temple as its backdrop, symbols on the reels include playing cards A, K, Q, J and 10 as well as vases and other artefacts. You will also see both Paris, the Prince of Troy, and Achilles, a hero of the Trojan war, on the reels – 5 on each of them on a payline will reward you with 3,000 times your line stake.

Helena is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols – she also doubles your outcome when forming part of a winning combination. If you manage to get 5 Helena symbols on a payline, prepare yourself for a huge 40,000-coin win.

The sunrise symbol is the scatter with 3 of them in any position on the reels triggering the Free Games feature – here you will receive 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier (meaning your wins will be trebled). If you find 3 more sunrises during the feature, you will get an additional 15 free spins taking your total to 30.

Like with many other Novomatic slots, Helena is a medium to high variance game – the key to winning big is the Free Games feature with the 3x multiplier. If the Helena wild is part of winning combinations in the feature, your wins will be subject to a 6x multiplier! If you like games based on Greek mythology, Playtech offer plenty with Age of the Gods my favourite.
