Age of the Gods God of Storms is another game from the popular Age of the Gods series. Based on Greek mythology, this title is based on the God of the Sea. With 5 reels and 25 paylines, it can be played across desktop, mobile and tablet devices from as little as 25p per spin.
Visually superb from Playtech (as always), the scene is an ancient harbour which is overlooked from within the city walls – the reels are encased in pillars with marble-like reels. Symbols on the reels include traditional pots and vases, an archer with his bow, Artemis (Greek goddess of hunt), a Spartan and Hydra (sea monster).
It’s all about the Argo (ship) which is the wild symbol – it lands fully stacked to take over the entire reel. When it lands on the reels, you will trigger the Wild Wind Respin feature. Here, you are rewarded with a free respin – Aeolus then appears to the right-hand side of the reel set and blows the stacked wild 1 reel to the left.
As a result, the multiplier increases to 2x then 3x and finally 5x. If you get more than 1 stacked wild on the reels, this can lead to some god-like wins as you will get respins with increasing multipliers. I managed to get 3 fully wild reels with a 5x multiplier which resulted in a 920 times stake win!
As Age of the Gods God of Storms is part of the Age of the Gods series, there are 4 progressive jackpots to be randomly won – you enter the Jackpot Game and will see a 4×5 grid containing 20 squares. Match 3 symbols to win 1 of 4 progressive jackpots – you hope for the Ultimate Power jackpot which offers life-changing amounts!
All in all, Age of the Gods God of Storms is quite a simple slot – it’s medium to high variance with the big wins coming from multiple wild reels with the big 5x multiplier. If you want more variety in your play, Age of the Gods is still the best from the series. Alternatively, you cannot go wrong with Novomatic’s Lord of the Ocean which is based on Poseidon.
