Odysseus Slot Review
Odysseus is a Playson-powered video slot with 5 reels and 30 paylines. Playable from 30p up to £150 a spin, it’s on the Greek hero from Greek mythology (Odysseus). He was considered to be brave, strong and a good looking chap and known for being a problem solver which helped avoid war. Anyway, you will see symbols such as Achilles helmets, Trojan horses and Greek warriors.
There’s a quirky soundtrack which is typical Greek which is quite fun and upbeat. Anyway, graphically it’s not as sharp as newly released slot games but it has a classic/land based feel to it which I quite like. You will also notice other ancient Greek artefacts like coins and vases.
Anyway, Odysseus is all about the Free Spins feature which can be played when you get 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The scatter is represented, I think, but Athena who is the Goddess of intelligence, skill, peace, warfare and wisdom (according the Wikipedia).
Anyway, 3 Athena symbols will give you 10 free spins, 4 Athena symbols will give you 25 free spins and 5 Athena symbols will give you a whopping 100 free spins. You can also trigger more free spins (like described above) if you get 3 or more scatter symbols during the feature.
Odysseus is a medium variance slot in my opinion with wins being nicely balanced. The bigger wins will come in the free spins feature with my best return being just over 200 times my stake. You can only play this game at Red Queen Casino for now by the way. Finally, if you like ancient Greek themed slots, you should definitely try WMS Gaming’s Zeus which is arguably the most popular slot game of all time.
