With Age of the Gods, Playtech transports players to the world of Olympian deities most of us know from ancient Greek mythology. Here you have Poseidon, Athena, Hades, Zeus, Aphrodite, and Hercules helping you with their godly powers to score wins on 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 fixed paylines. The game is part of Playtech’s pooled jackpot network, giving you the chance to bag one out of four progressive prizes.
Paytable and Payouts
The five reels of Age of the Gods slot are rimmed in gold and feature symbols of the above-mentioned Olympic gods. The reels spin against a backdrop that shows the splendor of the magnificent palaces where these deities dwell, with waterfalls cascading into a lake.
Greek goddess of wisdom and warfare Athena is the highest paying regular symbol in the game, awarding 1,000x your line bet for five matches. A five of a kind with Poseidon or Zeus yields a payout of 500x your stake per line.
The other top payers in Age of the Gods are Hercules (400x), Hades and Aphrodite (300x), and the golden helmet (250x). Extra payouts of 200x are awarded when all five deities hit the reels on the same spin.
The low payers are made up of the conventional card initials K, Q, and A but these are beautifully styled to resemble the letters from the Greek alphabet. Each of them can earn you 150/50/12 for five, four or three matches, respectively. The winning combinations pay from left to right only.
Extra Features and Symbols of Interest
Age of the Gods is accessorized with a wild symbol containing a gilded laurel wreath. This one subs for all symbols bar the scatter and returns the top payout of 10,000x the line bet for five matches. Then we have the scatter with the game’s logo. This is the only symbol that pays in both directions, rewarding you with 150x your line bet for five of a kind.
More importantly, three or more scattered laurel wreaths trigger the bonus feature. Here you are presented with 20 coins and need to reveal them until you match three god symbols to trigger a round of free spins. Below is a rundown of the spins each deity gives you:
- Athena awards 9 free spins with random multipliers whose values range from 2x to 5x
- Zeus awards 9 free spins with a progressive multiplier that increases every 3 rounds
- Poseidon awards 9 free games and can transform up to 5 symbols into wilds
- Hercules gives you 9 free spins with stacked wilds on the third reel
And now for the main attraction in Age of the Gods – the four progressive prizes. These can be won at random on any spin regardless of the amount staked. However, the bigger you bet, the bigger your chances of triggering the jackpot game, which guarantees you a progressive win.
Age of the Gods is worth giving a try, even more so if you are intrigued by Greek mythology. The game is packed with tons of extra features, which prevents players from getting bored and maintains their interest even if they fail to pocket one of the four progressive prizes. The RTP is below average at 95.02% to compensate for the jackpots.
