How to Play
The first look at this slot will show you a number of inspiring symbols, but Athena, the goddess herself, is the greatest among all, taking the role of the Wild symbol when she lands on reels 2, 3 and 4, and substituting for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol, which is Athena’s Owl, symbolizing wisdom and activating the game’s main feature.
Gameplay Experience: Graphics and Sound
Playtech has advanced the visuals for this game quite extensively, giving it more animations and depth. And, while the graphics might not come close to actual video games, true fans of the series will certainly appreciate the improvements.
Sound effects in the original Age of the Gods slot were more focused on the gods battling it out; this time around, the music and sound effects mirror Athena’s wisdom and provide a more relaxing soundtrack to the spinning reels, which will sound off in a magical way when you hit a winner.
Goddess of Wisdom has prepared a nice present with her progressive jackpot. The progressive jackpot is triggered randomly for any type of line bet, but higher bets mean a higher chance of triggering it. If you activate it, the game will take you to a separate screen with a 4×5 grid. You will have to select coins on the grid until you find 3 matching coins, which guarantees a win. There are four available jackpots – Power, Extra Power, Super Power, and Ultimate Power.
Athena’s Wild symbol will help you make winning combos, while Athena’s Owl will trigger the Battle Game, the special bonus round. In order to activate this, you need to land 3 of the Owls anywhere on the reels. The game will require you to choose from 3 different free spins options:
- 10 Free spins + extra Shield symbols on the reels
- 7 Free spins + a 4x multiplier applied to all wins + extra Helmet symbols
- 14 Free spins + a 2x multiplier applied to all wins + extra Armor symbols
If any Wild symbols land on the reels during the free spins, they will expand and cover the entire reel they land on, creating extensive opportunities for winning combos. The only downside to the Battle Game feature is that you can’t win any additional free spins within this round.
