Where to play?
There are quite a few online slots inspired by ancient Greek mythology. One of the most exciting ones to play is undoubtedly Gods of Olympus Megaways by Blueprint. What makes this slot particularly appealing is the fact that it uses the Megaways mechanic, which was created by Big Time Gaming and is licensed out to other providers. Thanks to this, on every spin of the reels you can have a huge number of ways to win. The slot features a number of the most prominent mythological characters from ancient Greece, such as Poseidon, Aries, Athene and, of course, Zeus himself.
Gods of Olympus Megaways is a high variance slot with an RTP of 96.03%. You won’t win too often when playing this slot, though whenever you’re lucky enough to win, your payout should be substantial. The slot’s played on a grid with six reels. Each reel can have anything between two and five positions on it. The number of positions can vary from reel to reel and is randomly determined on every spin. The all-ways-win mechanic is used, so to form a winning combination all you have to do is land matching symbols on consecutive reels, starting with the leftmost one. The lowest number of ways to win you can have on a spin is 64, while the highest is an impressive 15,625.
Symbols and Payouts
There are ten standard symbols you’ll see appear on the reels in Gods of Olympus Megaways. The six symbols offering the lowest payouts are the card ranks A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. Then you have four Greek gods, all of whom offer higher payouts. The slot’s most valuable symbol is fittingly the Zeus symbol; after all, he was the one and only king of the gods. Land six Zeus symbols on consecutive reels and you’ll win a payout worth 25x your bet.
As well as the standard symbols, there are two bonus symbols to look out for. The Parthenon symbol acts as the wild and substitutes for all standard symbols. There’s also the scatter, which is responsible for triggering the slot’s free spins feature.
Whenever you land three, four, five or six scatters, you’ll receive 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. You’ll get to choose an artefact and will be rewarded with one of four different free spins bonuses:
– Colossus Free Spins. Start with a 2×2 roaming wild whose multiplier increases in value whenever you land additional scatters, the multiplier can reach as high as 625x!
– Wild Storm Free Spins. Special thunderbolt symbols covering positions on reels 1 and 6 turn all symbols that land on them into wilds, though only on reels 2-5. Collect enough scatters to get more ways to win
– Rise of Olympus Free Spins. All wilds increase the value of the multiplier, which has no upper limit
– Almighty Wild Free Spins. Wild multipliers worth 2x and 3x can combine to give you a multiplier worth 81x in total. Landing scatters improve the value of the multiplier, up to 625x
All four free spins rounds offer the chance to claim more free spins.
On any random spin, Zeus may show up and give you one of five bonuses:
– Wild Thunder. Adds up to 10 multiplier wilds
– Colossal Thunder. Up to six reels combine to form a single, extra large colossal reel
– Mystery Thunder. Mystery symbols are added to all six reels
– Bonus Thunder. The spin’s played with 15,625 ways to win and has added bonus symbols
