Join ancient Greek gods Zeus and Poseidon on their quest to destroy Hades, Lord of the underworld and ruler of the dead in The Legend of Olympus. Powered by Rabcat, this 5 reel, 20 payline slot is superbly designed and comes with free spin and pick me features. Join the gods from between 20p and £40 per spin.
The design team at Rabcat has created a superb looking slot – set within the columns of a Greek temple and overseen by the mighty Zeus, the reels include spears, goblets, helmets and shields alongside the gods Ares, Aphrodite and Poseidon.
The trident carrying god is the top payer, awarding 1,000 times your total stake if you land 5 on a payline. That mighty haul of treasure is also on offer if you land 5 of the wild in a single payline. The deathly looking Hades is that wild.
There are 2 other symbols to look out for, both of which are instrumental in triggering a feature. Land 3 of the gold coin bearing the face of the bearded Zeus (who looks a bit like Chewbacca!) anywhere on the reels and you’ll win the River Styx Bonus feature. Here you’ll be presented with a selection of gold coins – pick to reveal cash prizes. Pick 2 winners and you’ll proceed to a new screen where treasure chests filled with even bigger coin prizes are on offer.
3 free spin symbols trigger the Free Spins feature – Zeus will fire off some bolts of lightning and in the process reveal the number of free spins you’ve been awarded. Land the free spins symbol again and you’ll re-trigger even more extra free spins.
Legend of Olympus matches superb visuals with solid gameplay – the 3D imagery is fantastically well done. Even the lower value symbols burst into outlandish animations when they form part of a winning combination. The action is matched by a haunting Mediterranean soundtrack punctuated by crashing swords, eerie winds and clanging bells. It’s all rather atmospheric.
The features aren’t quite as spectacular as the visuals but the pick me style River Styx Bonus feature is very stylishly done. This isn’t a particularly volatile slot with the variance in the low to medium range. If the gods are in a benevolent mood though, The Legend of Olympus can deliver some Olympian-sized payouts. If you like the theme, Playtech offer you the Age of the Gods series with Age of the Gods and Age of the Gods Furious 4 worth a look.
