Age of the Gods Goddess of Wisdom is a Playtech slot which is part of the Age of the Gods series. With 5 reels and 20 paylines, it can be played from as little as 20p per spin. With a progressive jackpot element, the game is based on Athena who is the Goddess of Wisdom (and War).

Graphically, the game looks fantastic and is set in an ancient Greek temple. Symbols on the reels include olive branches, sandals, armour, helmets and Gorgoneion which is a magic pendant showing the Gorgon’s head – the latter is the highest value symbol as it gives you 5,000 times your line stake when you get 5 on a payline.

Athena is the game’s wild symbol as she appears on the 3 middle reels – she also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The scatter is the owl with 3 or more anywhere on the reels activating the Battle Game feature. Then you have the choice of 3 free spins modes.

If you select the Gorgoneion, you will get 10 free spins. If you choose the helmet, you will receive 7 free spins with a 4x multiplier. If you choose the armour, you will get 14 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Now, all wild symbol in any of the 3 free spins modes will expand to fill the entire reel they land on.

More importantly, your chosen symbol will replace the other 2 symbols during the free spins – the 14 free spins with a 2x multiplier may seem like the best option but 10 free spins with the high value Gorgoneion could pay much more. I personally would go for 7 free spins with a 4x multiplier. Finally, you cannot retrigger more free spins.

As with all other Age of the Gods series games, there are 4 progressive jackpots to be won – randomly triggered from any spin, you can enter the Jackpot game. You will come across 20 gold coins – make picks until you match 3 of the same one. You can win the Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power jackpot – the latter is the highest value and can be life-changing.

I found the variance in Age of the Gods Goddess of Wisdom to be medium to high – it’s all about the Battle Game feature though. As mentioned, the 4x multiplier is very appealing but 10 free spins with the high value Gorgoneion will probably give you the bigger wins. I recommend you try Age of the Gods which is based on Athena, Hercules, Poseidon and Zeus and has the best bonus feature of all the series.
