Goddess of Wisdom
The Goddess of Wisdom slot is one of Playtech’s Age Of The Gods series which hurls its players straight into the embattled world of the ancient Greek gods and Goddesses like a bolt of lighting. Here mortals are merely their playthings!
Goddess of Wisdom, like the rest of the series, looks the part with some serious charm to lure you into play, but that’s not all. Goddess of Wisdom comes with some sexy extras to complement those seriously smooth graphics.
Athena was the Greek Goddess of Wisdom and name giver to the city of Athens, where she was the immortal protector.
As a self-confessed Classical history freak, I was chomping on the bit to jump head long into this game and find out if I could take heavenly flight, or crash to earth at the first spin!
Goddess of Wisdom has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines.
The reels are set against the backdrop of a high temple looking over the ancient city of Athens. The game’s high value icons are a shield bearing the scary snake-covered head of the gorgon Medusa, there is the armoured breast plate of the goddess, a Greek battle helmet, a pair of magical silver sandals, and a sprig of olive, a traditional symbol of the goddess Athena. The lower value icons are the A through 9 of a card deck.
Goddess of Wisdom’s Wild- a fierce brunette Athena armoured to do battle- appears on reels 2,3 and 4 and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. This game’s Scatter is Athena’s own symbol, a majestic owl.
The game’s soundtrack has the steely tones of a building battle, with some strange effects that sound like the sharpening of a blade as we prepare to face down any invaders!
There are some nice little touches that add to the high-class packaging of the game; a win lights up the icons with magical gold dust. This game also has a turbo and an autoplay mode for those players out there who like to keep things moving!
Battle Game – Free Spins aplenty!
To enter the Battle Game mode you gotta get 3 or more Scatters on the reels- once these are in place you’re in! Here you have to save Athens from blood-thirsty invaders; thankfully you have the goddess of wisdom’s protection!
The Battle mode is based on 3 different Free Spin modes and these do up the tension of gameplay and up the winnings too!
During this feature there is an expanding Wilds feature which also ratchets up the fun, just land one during the free spins and it expands to fill the reel.
You can opt for 10 free games, 7 free games with a nifty quadruple multiplier, or a whopping 14 free games with a double multiplier.
As with all the Age of the Gods series, Goddess of Wisdom has a progressive Jackpot feature to keep those coins coming! The Jackpot is randomly triggered so it could pop up at any point in play. When it does the player is presented with a grid of 20 golden coins. You simply have to turn the coins to find 3 of the same symbol to win in 1 of 4 jackpots, Ultimate Power jackpot is the most rewarding of these.
I like the theming of the Age of the Gods series and Goddess of Wisdom certainly looks the part with great graphics and enough amusement away from the base game to keep my interest. If you like classical immortal genre of games then this slot will lure you in with its packaging and keep you for its slick gameplay. I will be coming back to this game again!
