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. 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.
The Age of the Gods Slot Look
Age of Gods comes packed with 20 fixed pay-lines. Just select your line bet and off you go.
This game looks tasty with graphics that are heaven sent- 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 posse of divin beings show off some clear skin, pumped up muscles and voluminous hair dos.Let’s just say their gym membership hasn’t expired.
The scent of ambrosia (the favourite food of the gods) is in the air in this vision of a palatial temples and bubbling waterfalls that provide the perfect setting for the Age of the Gods.
A golden frame sets off the immotal action that unfolds on the reels. This game is a looker, there is no doubt.
And the soundtrack is the atmospheric stuff of movies with soaring effects and bassy sounds.
The high value symbols that make up our divine posse of icons include the top scorer: the golden-helmet wearing Athena, the goddess of strategy and wisdom, (I bet she knows how to make a mint on this game).
Zeus, the king of the gods is the next in value- you know he’s the boss from his massive chest and the wild bouffant hair, topped with a crown.
The king of the deep, Poseidon, also makes an appeaance with his mighty forked trident, and fish-scale armour. He´s also got the big hairy look.
And then there is the lion skin on the head of Hercules and the eye-poppingly busty Aphrodite, the goddess of love.
Hades, the god of the underworld is the last heavenly figure to feature 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 gold and blue.
The Wild is 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.
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.
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 won 200x your line bet!
Athena – Zeus – Poseidon – Hercules – Aphrodite
But your main aim should be to land 3 or more Age of the Gods Scatters across the reels and you will enter the bonus round.
Now it’s time to try and start earning the Gold of the Gods. You will enter a bonus game with a grid of 20 coins suspended over a view of a purple room. This is a picking game giving you the chance to click on a coin to reveal a god. Match three of a kind to open the gates to some money-making 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 ominous Hades then the feature automatically ends.
If you land 3 Athenas onto the reels then you’ll trigger the Athena Free Spins and you’ll get 9 free spins.
Before each free game, Athena will award a random multiplier between x2 and x5 for the free games- she’s a generous beauty.
Zeus Free Spins
Muscly-bound Zeus in 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 into the centre of the middle reel during the whole show which increases your odds of landing winning combinations. No wonder he’s the king of the gods!
And what about the king 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 he rips out of his trident and lightning zaps symbols into Wilds (he can turn up to 5 symbols wild).
Hercules also gives out 9 free games, and he appears as a stacked wild in the centre reel during the whole free spins bonus. He makes an impressive sight in his animal skins 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. It´s another reason for playing this slot game- the 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.
If Lady Luck or maybe the goddess Athena, is smiling on you, and you manage to trigger the jackpot game, you are guaranteed a win – kerching!
By making an offering to Zeus and his crew and you might end up hitting the 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!

Play for 4 different progressive jackpots
The Pantheon of Power 200x Bonus (randomly activated)

RTP lower than aveage as you ae contributing to the progressive jackpots
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 the the AGE of the GODS scatter is one to try and land as well.
We love the Age of the Gods slots range- the design is fantastic on these games with rich, sumptuous 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 good on a mobile phone too.
We Say: 5/5
