Playtech’s Age of the Gods: Epic Troy Slot Review

The Age of the Gods: Epic Troy slot is by Playtech and has 5 reels and 243 ways to win. With a romantic feel, this Greek mythology game can be played from 20p to £500 a spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Based on the legendary Trojan War, it comes with 3 respins features as well as a free spins feature where only high value symbols appear to increase the chances of landing the respins features.

Age of the Gods: Epic Troy Theme/Symbols

The Age of the Gods: Epic Troy slot is beautiful to look at – set in the city of Troy (which was in the Asia Minor region), you’ll see ancient temples in the backdrop. Symbols include letters from the Greek alphabet – you have Alpha, Beta, Omega and Zeta. There’s also a ship symbol.

Then you have 3 legendary characters – you have Achilles who was a hero of the Trojan War and recognised as the greatest of all Greek warriors. Then you have Paris who was important in the Trojan War as famously wounded Achilles with an arrow.

Lastly, there’s Helen who was the most beautiful woman in the known world and was abducted by Paris (of Troy) – she’s the most rewarding symbol with 3, 4 or 5 in combination giving you 0.5, 1 or 2.5 times your stake. Achilles, Paris and Helen symbols can land fully stacked up to 3-high on the reels.

There’s also a wild symbol that appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the 3 middle reels) – it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. Being a 243 ways to win slot, you form wins by getting 3 or more matching symbols on successive reels starting from reel 1 (i.e. a Helen symbol on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4).

Helen Respin Bonus feature

Age of the Gods: Epic Troy comes with 3 respin features – based on each of the characters. If you land 2 or more full Helen symbol stacks simultaneously, you’ll trigger the Helen Respin Bonus feature. With 3 respins granted, only Helen symbols are active. With the triggering Helen symbols held, new Helen symbols appearing will also be held and the number of respins resetting to 3. The feature ends when all respins have finished or you fill the reels with Helen symbols – if you manage to do the latter, you’ll win 607.5 x stake.

Paris Respin Bonus feature

The Paris Respin Bonus feature is played when you get 2 or more full Paris symbol stacks on the reels. With 2 respins awarded, only Paris symbols are active. If more Paris symbols land, these are also held with the respins tally resetting to 2. The aim is to form a block of 3 or more adjacent Paris symbol stacks in order to benefit from a Mega Reel. This will give you additional cash prizes:

  • 3-stack Mega Reel will spin once to give you a prize of between 5 and 50 x stake
  • 4-stack Mega Reel will spin once to give you a prize of between 10 and 100 x stake
  • 5-stack Mega Reel will spin once to give you a prize of between 20 and 150 x stake

Achilles Respin Bonus feature

Lastly, there’s the Achilles Respin Bonus feature which is triggered when you get 2 or more full Achilles symbol stacks on the reels. With just the 1 respin awarded, the Achilles symbol is held in position. Once the respin takes place, the triggering Achilles symbol stacks act as wild symbols (i.e. 2 or more wild reels).

Free Games feature

The Age of the Gods: Epic Troy online slot benefits from a Free Games feature – this is activated once you see 3 or more shield scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. 3, 4 or 5 shields will reward you with 1, 10 or 50 times your stake as well as 6 free spins with rich reels.

More importantly, you’ll only see wilds, scatters, Helen, Paris and Achilles symbols in play during the free spins – meaning no low value Greek alphabet symbols. With a retrigger available to give you 12 free spins in total, you can also trigger any of the 3 respins features more easily.

Age of the Gods Jackpot feature

As with all Age of the Gods series slot, Age of the Gods: Epic Troy comes with an Age of the Gods Jackpot feature which is randomly activated. Once in, you will see a 4x5 grid of 20 coins – you click on the coins to reveal jackpot symbols. If you match 3 identical jackpot symbols, you’ll win the corresponding jackpot – here’s what they offer:

  • Power Jackpot: starts at £50
  • Extra Power Jackpot: starts at £500
  • Super Power Jackpot: starts at £5,000
  • Ultimate Power Jackpot: starts at £100,000

Age of the Gods: Epic Troy thoughts

Firstly, the Age of the Gods: Epic Troy game looks superb – Playtech always deliver on that front. When it comes to the bonus features, I like the fact the Helen Respin Bonus feature gives you the chance to fill the reels with the highest value symbol.

With an RTP of 96.5% (which is good), this medium to high variance slot pays out up to 607.5 x stake on each spin, respin or free spin – you can do this by filling the reels with Helen symbols. If you fill the reels with Paris or Achilles, you’ll win 364.5 or 303.75 x stake respectively.

Whilst it doesn’t offer the max wins like Age of the Gods: Mighty Midas (8,650 x stake payouts), it does offer plenty of bonus features, great graphics and 4 progressive jackpots. It’s another welcome addition to the popular Age of the Gods series from Playtech.
