Play’n Go’s Rise of Olympus slot arrived on the scene in 2018 to critical acclaim. Deeply rooted in ancient Greek mythology, which has been a popular theme for online slots since forever, it’s quite a lucrative and fun slot to play.
A visually striking game, the Rise of Olympus slot is pretty detailed. The graphics, animations, and sounds create an immense experience that takes you on a journey to Olympus itself. Of course, it’s not just the visuals in question. Rise of Olympus excels in gameplay as well, offering a max win of 1,000,000 coins! When it comes to jackpots, it’s one of the biggest we’ve seen.
Indian players will definitely be impressed with the Rise of Olympus slot look and gameplay. It is easy to play on all mobile devices and features prizes worth the spins. The slot may be of high volatility, so when you win, it’s going to be a big one. Thanks to the cascading symbols and the cool bonus features, it’s a slot that definitely deserves your attention.
The Rise of Olympus online slot has a 5×5 layout with symbols inspired by Greek mythology on the reels. Among the symbols you’ll find those of Ares and the game’s three protagonists – Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. A golden coin that shows Pegasus in all his glory is the wild and highest paying symbol as well. Land five of these on the reels for 5,000 coins.
The base game plays out just as expected, but where the game really shines are the special features. Random features may turn symbols to higher paying ones during the base game while also adding wilds and destroying whole sets for amazing prizes. These features may also clear out the grid to reward you with a round of free spins.
The game is playable across a variety of devices for as low as 20p per spin. The Rise of Olympus slot benefits from the cascading symbols feature which replaces winning symbols with new ones and gives you a shot at new win combos. At the same time, the multiplier rises by 1 with each spin. If you’re really lucky, the randomly triggered Hand of God feature (for all 3 gods) can really turn the tide in your favor.
Each of the three Gods in the game has a unique ability that can create enticing combos. The Hand of God feature is randomly triggered, with each God changing after a trigger. Depending on the active character, the game will: add 2 wilds to the reels (Poseidon), turn a set of symbols to another (Hades) or destroy two sets of symbols (Zeus). With this exciting feature, you can win a prize worth up to 5,000 times your bet.
The Wrath of Olympus bonus feature is even more exciting. It’s essentially a single free spin but with a twist – you get a spin for free with all three Hand of God feature enabled. To trigger the Wrath of Olympus, you’ll need to fill the on-screen meter. This is done by winning combinations that include the God symbols. Five-of-a-kind wins fill the meter quicker if you’re really lucky.
If you clear the whole grid, you’ll start the free spins bonus round. When triggered, you get to pick between Hades (4 free spins), Poseidon (5 FS) or Zeus (8 FS). The game will then apply the selected Hand of God feature on non-winning free spins, with consecutive wins filling up the multiplier meter.
We must say that the Rise of Olympus slot certainly looks fantastic. It feels like a great all-round slot which is only brought down by the high variance. However, this means that you can win big if you’re lucky, which is what most players hope for.
If there’s one slot based on Greek mythology we must pick, it’s this one. Play’n Go did a fantastic job on it so you can expect top gameplay and features.
