Feel the lightning bolts and the power of Zeus and Hera as the two clash on the reels of the progressive slot from Playtech. Rulers of Olympus is the next addition to the Age of the Gods series of progressive video slots. It features Hera vs Zeus shifting wilds, the Thunderbolt bonus feature, the epic Olympus clash and an Olympus free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 1,000 times your stake on every free spin. And not to forget, four progressive jackpots that are pooled from all games in the series.
Age of the Gods – Rulers Of Olympus is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 25 fixed pay lines in the base game. This doubles to 50 pay lines in the Olympus free spins round. Play the game on mobile or desktop from 0.25 to 500 credits. The RTP of this medium variance game is set at a rather low 94.06%.
Age of the Gods – Rulers Of Olympus looks well designed with gracious statues of Hera and Zeus in the background while more gods and goddesses populate the reels. The displays for the four all-important progressive jackpots tower on top of the game window, which looks like it was carved from a piece of rock. As expected, a rather heroic soundtrack coupled with thunders is the main audio on the game.
The low-value symbols are no godly creatures, instead, Playtech opted for the ever-used card royals from 9 through to A. They are followed by six gods and goddesses – Aphrodite, Hades, Poseidon, Athena, Hera and Zeus – at the high level. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 1x to 40x your stake. Hera and Zeus act also as wandering wilds, in addition to the standard wild. All three perform the usual substitution duties. An Olympus Free Games and a Bonus symbol appearing on reel five only will trigger their respective feature when they land on a spin.
Hera and Zeus wilds can appear on any spin the base game. They are both wandering wilds, Hera from right to left and Zeus from left to right. If they land on the same two, will see them clash and trigger the Battle of Power Free Spins. These are unlimited free spins with both wilds appearing with a higher frequency. They will clash again and create extra wilds when land on the same row during the feature. The round continues until Hera defeats Zeus.
The feature is triggered when the thundering bonus symbol lands on reel five in a spin. It will strike the reels and transform a random number of up to seven symbols and itself into wild symbols before the win evaluation is made.
Landing the Olympus Free Spins symbol on reel five will trigger seven free spins with the game window expanded to four rows and 50 pay lines. Only the high-value symbols will be on the reels, plus up to 10 sticky Hera and Zeus Wilds will be locked on random positions before the round starts. The feature can be retriggered indefinitely when the free spin symbol lands again on reel five.
The bonus game can be triggered on any spin in the base game. The higher the bet, the higher the chance to enter the bonus game, with a guaranteed win of one of the four progressive jackpots – Power, Extra Power, Super Power, and Ultimate Power. The 20 reel positions are covered by gold coins and the aim is to pick coins until three matching jackpot symbols are revealed.
Age of the Gods – Rulers Of Olympus is a great game with a variety of bonus rounds as well as the progressive jackpots. The potential in the standard game might not be super high but it can be life changing when one of the jackpots is triggered. Plus, the graphics and animations are crisp and of high quality. Remains for us only to say ” May the Gods or Goddesses be with you in your slotting session”.
