Age of the Gods: Rulers of Olympus is a Playtech slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Available to play from 25p to £500 a spin on all devices, this Greek mythology themed offering comes with 2 free spins features, a shifting wilds feature, a Thunderbolt Bonus feature as well as the chance to win 4 progressive jackpots.
Visually, Age of the Gods: Rulers of Olympus looks superb – with gods Zeus and Hera in the backdrop, symbols on the reels A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as gods/goddesses Aphrodite, Hades, Poseidon, Athena, Hera and Zeus. The latter 3 are the most rewarding giving you 40 times your stake for 5 across a payline. There’s also a wild that substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – it pays like the 3 most valuable symbols.
Age of the Gods: Rulers of Olympus comes with a Hera vs Zeus Shifting Wilds feature – the gods can appear on any base game spin with Zeus shifting right on each spin and Hera shifting left on each spin until they drop off the reels.
If you both land on the same row, they will trigger the Battle for Power Free Games feature. When the rulers of Olympus clash, you’ll benefit from wild wins – this occurs when Hera lands on the same row as Zeus. Every clash creates additional wild symbols and the feature ends when Zeus is finally defeated.
The game also comes with an Olympus Free Games feature which is played when the Olympus Free Games scatter appears on reel 5 – your reward is 7 free spins. The feature only uses higher paying god/goddess symbols – you’ll also play on a 50 payline reel set.
Up to 10 Zeus symbols are locked on every free spin for bigger wins – furthermore, the feature can be retriggered indefinitely meaning unlimited free spins. However, the value of the royals and Aphrodite, Hades, Poseidon and Athena is lower than the base game.
Finally, there’s the Thunderbolt Bonus feature which is triggered when the Bonus symbol appears on reel 5 – you feel the wrath of Zeus with extra wild symbols added to the reels. The mighty Zeus can add up to 7 wilds onto the reels for enhanced winning potential.
As part of the Age of the Gods series, you can win 4 progressive jackpots randomly – you enter the Jackpot Game where you pick from 20 coins. You need to match 3 identical jackpot symbols to win the corresponding jackpot – in ascending value, you have the Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power jackpots.
There’s plenty going on in Age of the Gods: Rulers of Olympus – I quite like it. The slot looks fantastic but the win potential is only 1,000 times your stake on every spin/free spin (if you manage to fill the reels with wilds, Zeus, Hera or Athena symbols. Another good addition to the Age of the Gods series, I’d rather play Age of the Gods with has plenty of gods and offers payouts of 7,000 times your stake on each Poseidon free spin!
