Age of the Gods Furious 4 is a progressive jackpot slot game from Playtech. With 5 reels and 25 paylines, it is playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 20p to £500 a spin. Part of the Age of the Gods series, it has an ancient Greek mythology theme which is aesthetically beautiful.
The game features 4 gods: Prometheus, Apollo, Pandora, Atlas. Each one of them is represented in their own free spins feature (which is described below). Each with their own characteristics, the game benefits from the Turbo Mode found in other Playtech games which allows you to spin those reels even quicker.
In terms of symbols, the Furious 4 wild is the highest value symbol which rewards you with 10,000 times your line bet if you manage to get 5 on a payline.
The main appeal is the Free Games feature which is triggered when you get 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. You will receive 12 free spins with 4 Furious features available. Look out for the 4 gods covering the middle reel which will then trigger the corresponding Furious feature. Here are their details:
- Age of Light (Apollo) – if you get Apollo covering the middle reel during the feature, you will trigger 4 Age of Light free spins. Apollo symbols substitute for all other symbols (except wild and scatter) and expand to cover the entire reel when they land.
- Age of Curiosity (Pandora) – you will get a 1x stake cash prize when Pandora covers the middle reel during the free spins feature. You will also get 4 Age of Curiosity free spins which start with a 1x multiplier. Look out for Pandora as she increases the multiplier by 1 every time she appears. Your total winnings from the 4 spins will be subject to the multiplier at the end of the feature too!
- Age of Fire (Prometheus) – getting Prometheus covering the middle reel during the Free Games feature activates 4 Age of the Fire free spins. Reel 1 is then covered by locked Prometheus symbols with extra Prometheus symbols on the other 4 reels.
- Age of Endurance (Atlas) – this is played when Atlas covers the 3rd reel and gives you 3 Age of Endurance free spins. Atlas symbols substitute for all symbols (except wild and scatter) and freeze on the reels for all remaining Age of Endurance free spins.
Like with all other Age of the Gods slots, you can win 1 of the 4 progressive jackpots at any time – the higher your stake, the higher your chances of winning (naturally). When you are randomly taken to the Jackpot Game, you need to pick from a 4×5 grid of 20 squares to match 3 symbols. You can win either the Power, Extra Power, Super Power or Ultimate Power jackpot with the latter being the highest.
I found Age of the Gods Furious 4 to be medium to high variance slot with the bigger wins coming from the Age of Light free spins due to expanding Apollo symbols. I’ve also had good wins from the Age of Curiosity free spins with a high multiplier applied to all winnings. I also recommend you play Age of the Gods Zeus which is superb.
