When thinking about Ancient Greek mythology, Hercules is perhaps one of the most famous of the legends to have been told and is likely to be one of the first that come to the mind of those that know anything about the historic period.
Indeed, Playtech look to have taken inspiration from the legend that has been told in various forms of media and have provided players with their Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus slot game.
Our Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus game review found that the slot developers used some of the very best graphics we have ever seen, whilst they fit incredibly well with the purple background that has been adopted.
Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus is played on a grid that has five reels of three rows and features 25 paylines. The paylines are adjustable, meaning players do not need to have all of these active when spinning the reels. For instance, bettors can have as few as one activated if they wish.
Bets for this game can be placed from as little as $0.01 per spin, whilst those that want to play with all 25 paylines and a maximum wager of $250 per spin. This means players of all betting budgets can try and help Hercules in this slot game. Naturally, our Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus Free Play version at the top of this page will give players the chance to test it out without using real money.
As mentioned, players have the ability to adjust both the paylines and the bet values. In addition, they also have the opportunity to use the ‘Autoplay’ button, which allows players to set a number of spins to be made uninterrupted.
Symbols available on the paytable come in two different categories; low and medium values. The playing cards that feature the royal values of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A all feature and provide rewards of between 50x and 100x for five of a kind on an active payline, whereas the Club and the Belt icons will each reward players with a reward of 200x for five, however only two of these are needed to trigger a prize. The apples follow whereas Cerberus provide some of the biggest rewards with two, three, four and five of a kind paying out 5x, 100x, 400x and 4,000x respectively.
Our Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus slot review found that there are three different special symbols that players can use to increase their chances of winning big rewards. These are:
- Herculean strength: Triggered when a Hercules Wild symbol appears on the grid in either the second, third, or fourth reel as it has the ability to substitute all other icons. If it appears on reel 3, then it will expand and cover all positions on that reel and remain in place for 2 re-spins. If three icons appear anywhere on those reels, then it will expand to cover each of those reels and stick in place for 1 re-spin.
- Free game: Three or more the Hercules Scatters in any position will see players rewarded with 10 free spins that will also see any wins formed be multiplied by 3x.
- Hydra bonus: A ‘Bonus’ icon can appear on reels one and five and if they appear on both in the same spin, then they will be taken to a game where they will need to fight the nine-headed monster. All players need to do is to shoot arrows at the various heads to win prizes. If a head is slashed from Hydra’s body, then a win multiplier will be awarded to the overall win.
In addition to these features, the game also provides players with the chance to win a progressive jackpot. There are four available to win and these are triggered at random. However, bettors that place the larger wagers are more likely to see it activated.
