According to Ancient Greek mythology, a total of 12 gods ruled the universe from a central seat of power, namely Mount Olympus. Zeus was the leader of the group, and also the one responsible for their having come into power. Zeus is perhaps also widely known due to his temper having had a direct influence on the weather. Zeus was married to Hera. Hera is typically portrayed as being a warrior, perhaps as a result of her many plots of revenge aimed at the multitude of lovers kept by Zeus.
Zeus and Hera are well known figures in Greek Mythology, and also as such adopted into Roman culture. The Romans renamed all 12 of the Gods of Olympus, changing the names of Zeus and Hera to Jupiter and Juno.
Gods of Olympus slot is based on a combination of Greek and Roman mythology and folklore, and is played on 5 reels and 20 paylines. Any total of paylines may be selected in order for a bet to be placed, as they are not fixed paylines. This exciitng themed video slot can be played for free or for real money.
The featured symbols create the impression that a battle is being played out on the reels. Symbols include a Centurion’s helmet, a battle sword, a Viking-like battle ship, the pillars of the Coliseum and a Greek pottery vase.
Symbol payouts range from 700 credits for a combination of 5 of a kind in a row, to 550 credits for the same feat with lower paying themed symbols. The Coliseum is the highest paying themed symbol, and the battle sword the lowest.
Playing card symbols Jack, Queen, King and Ace also spin onto the reels, and are all adorned in Greek symbolism, the most prominent perhaps being the Ace card – written in the style of the letter A from the Greek alphabet. Playing card symbols do not pay out much less than themed symbols – 450 credits being the norm for 5 of a kind.
Hera (or Juno) is the game’s wild symbol. The Olympian goddess will substitute for all but the Zeus scatter symbol, in order to create a winning combination of symbols.
The scatter symbol is represented by Zeus who is holding a blue bolt of lightning. Landing three or more of the scatter symbols on any active payline will trigger the Gods of Olympus slot Free Spins Round. The number of free spins won depends on the number of scatter symbols landed when the round was activated.
Gods of Olympus slot also includes a Bonus Round. Zeus is once again the bringer of good fortune, this time seen holding a pitchfork.
The Zeus Bonus Symbol only appears during the Free Spins Bonus Round. Zeus must be landed 3 or more times anywhere on the reels – this will trigger the game’s Bonus Round.
During the Gods of Olympus slot Bonus Round, multipliers of up to X90 may be applied to winnings which could mean one of the biggest payouts.
