The Age of the Gods slot is a fixed 20 pay-line game in Playtech’s Age of Gods range which also includes Furious Four and King of Olympus. We love a Greek themed slot here (try the Hot as Hades slot for another take on it). These games replaced the popular Marvel Slots when Playtech lost the licence when Marvel was bought by Disney.
Anyway, the short-cut to this long story is that the new range is brighter, bolder and better than ever- this really is an exceptional range of games that make the older slots look a bit frayed around the edges. Let’s enter the world of the Age of the Gods slot which is the flagship of the range, shall we? Other titles include the Fate Sisters slot and King of Olympus.
Age of Gods comes packed with 20 fixed pay-lines. Just select your line bet and off you go.
Age of the Gods looks as darn tasty as its sibling games with graphics that are literally heaven sent- after all if you’re creating a world of divine beauty you might as well look the part, right?
The game delivers us right onto the doorstep of paradise where a crew of divinities pack some seriously good muscles, scantily clad perfection and massive voluminous hair dos.
The scent of ambrosia (the fave food of the gods) is in the air as this vision of a palatial temples and bubbling waterfalls provides the perfect setting for Age of the Gods in their beautiful home- who doesn’t want to chill in a marble palace after all?
The regal golden frame gives us a clear view of the wrath and all too human foibles of the hot gods that are just about to unfold on the reels.
The soundtrack makes sure you’re staying on the right side of these masters of the universe; it’s the atmospheric stuff of movies with soaring effects and bassy sounds.
The high value honeys and hunks that make up our divine posse of icons kick off with the top scorer being the golden-helmet wearing Athena, goddess of strategy and wisdom, (I bet she knows how to make a mint on this game), Zeus king of the gods is the next in value- you’ll know he’s the boss from his massive hunky chest and the wild bouffant hair, topped with a crown. The king of the deep, Poseidon, is part of the gang with his mighty forked trident, and fish-scaly armour and big hairy look (these guys must have done a lot of backcombing to get follicles this fancy!). The lion skin on his head is the clue that the mythical dude is Hercules- you know the guy with the tricky task list. Then there’s the eye-poppingly busty Aphrodite, she’s the goddess of luurve and it shows with a bod that would make anyone feint of heart! And Hades, the god of the underworld makes up the slightly scary-looking last heavenly figure with his purple underworld vibe and creepy hair. The last of the big scoring icons is a golden helmet of Athena.
The lower value icons of play are the Ace to Queen of the card deck in, you guessed it, gold- and blue.
The Wild is handily the word “Wild” with a golden wreath and this handy icon pays 10,000x your line bet if you manage to land 5 of them on a pay-line (plus they stand in for other symbols to make a winning combination of course).
The Scatter is the game’s logo- straight forward stuff so far, Spin some wheels at The Sun Casino and take a look.
As with all of the Age of the Gods series, this game is packed with enough extras to make any slot fan think they’ve died and gone to heaven- for real!
Pantheon of Power On Reels Feature
If you land the 5 following gods on a pay-line, crack open the bubbly- or should that be a bottle of nectar with a side of ambrosia? Why, because you will have just joined the euphoric ecstasy of the gods as you will have just won 200x your line bet!
Athena – Zeus – Poseidon – Hercules – Aphrodite
Use your charms to lure 3 or more Age of the Gods Scatters onto the reels and you will get into the bonus round.
Now you’re ready to start earning that godly gold. First up, you enter a new screen where a grid of 20 coins is suspended over a view of a purple room. Here a picking game gives you the chance to click on a coin to reveal one of the divine crew, you’re aiming to match three of a kind to open the gates to money-making paradise in the form of the free games! Each god has a side feature associated with them. But you need to watch out- if you turn a coin and reveal the creepy Hades then the feature automatically ends- boo!
If you manage to lure 3 Athenas onto the reels then you’ll trigger the Athena Free Spins. Now you’ll get 9 free spins. Before each free game, Athena will award a random multiplier between x2 and x5 for the following game- she’s a generous gal.
Zeus Free Spins
Muscly-bound toga toting Zeus with his big rod of lightning – (we reckon he’s got some serious pyrotechnics up his toga) will award 9 free spins. The spins start off with a x1 multiplier, then Zeus ups the ante by one every 3 games. A Wild is locked in on the centre spot of the middle reel during the whole show which increases your odds of landing winning combinations. No wonder this dude is the king of the gods!
What about the lord of the deep water, the god, Poseidon? Well, he also gives out 9 free games. Watch out for the storm though, instead of bringing terror he can bring a light show with a difference as his lightning rips out of his trident and frazzles symbols into welcome Wilds (it can turn up to 5 symbols wild).
Hercules also gives out 9 free games, but he appears as a stacked wild in the centre reel during the whole free spins bonus. It has to be said, he makes an impressive sight in his animal skins and muscle-tastic torso expanding over those reels!
Age of the Gods Slot Jackpot
Like all good Age of the Gods games in the series, this flagship slot is linked to a progressive jackpot- actually it’s linked to four of them: the Power, the Extra Power, the Super Power and the Ultimate Power. The last one is the big one. Now you have another reason for lovin’ this slot game- the massive big money tag attached to it.
All four of these generous jackpots can be won at random when you are playing the slot for real money.
What’s even better, if Lady Luck or maybe the goddess Athena, is smiling on you, and manage to trigger the jackpot game, you are guaranteed a win – kerching!
Just make a quick offering to Zeus and his pals and you might just end up hitting the wickedly giant Ultimate Power jackpot! You’ll see a 5×4 grid of 20 coins. You need to pick out 3 jackpot symbols (3 Ultimates for example). Good luck!
The Age of the Gods slot is a fixed 20 pay-line game in Playtech’s Age of Gods range which also includes Furious Four and King of Olympus. We do love a Greek themed slot here.
Anyway, the short-cut to this long story is that the new range is brighter and better than ever- this really is an excellent range of games that make the older slots look a bit frayed around the edges.
Remember that WILD pays 10,000x your line bet if you manage to land 5 of them on a pay-line (plus they stand in for other symbols to make a winning combination of course), and then there’s the AGE of GODS scatter of course.
We love the Age of the Gods slots range- the design is fantastic on these games with really rich, sumptuous (that word nails the description of this game), colours and an engaging soundtrack and game-play. This flagship game is probably our favourite- it’s a medium high variance game, so make sure you set your spin budget to get you through any slack periods. It looks really good on a mobile phone too.
We Say: 5/5
