About Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus
Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus is a visually stunning Playtech slot game released in 2017, centered around the prince of Olympus, which would be Hercules.
The game features a free spins game, a bonus game, re-spin with three Wilds stacked and two re-spins with one Wild stacked!
Introduction, including RTP and variance
Prince of Olympus has a somewhat disappointing theoretical payout (RTP) of 94.82%, which is not good enough for a standard slot game but perhaps understandable since this one has a progressive jackpot that needs to be filled with money.
Variance is medium, perhaps a bit high, as the game doesn’t pay often but has two bonus features, a jackpot game, and re-spins.
Gameplay and Pay Table
The paytable has six low-paying card symbols which are really insignificant, and three medium-paying symbols which will be a welcome sight on your reels.
The best-paying symbol in the game is Cerberus, the three-headed hound that guards the underworld, and it’s the only symbol that can produce a big win.
In a game with so many bonus features and a progressive jackpot on top, something’s got to give, and it’s the paytable. It’s weak enough to make all of those features possible.
The game doesn’t pay often, either.
Hercules Wild only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
If it lands at the center of reel 3, it will be held, it will expand to fill the entire reel, and you’ll be awarded 2 re-spins!
If you happen to land three Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4, all three of them will expand to fill the respective reel and you’ll be awarded a re-spin that will almost certainly produce a big win!
Bonus Scatter on reels 1 and 5 triggers the Hydra Bonus.
You’ll get to meet the giant Hydra and you’ll shoot arrows at her heads to win cash prizes.
If you slash Hydra, you’ll get a win multiplier.
There is also a randomly triggered Hercules Rage feature which destroys all Hydra’s heads.
Three or more Hercules Scatters trigger the free spins game with 10 free spins that have a 3x multiplier.
If you land three or more Hercules Scatters during the feature, you’ll re-trigger it. This is a very rewarding free spins game when the sheer number of bonus features in Prince of Olympus is considered.
And finally, of course, the progressive jackpot.
There are four jackpots to win, and when you trigger the jackpot game you’re certain to win one of them: Power Jackpot, Super Power Jackpot, Ultra Power Jackpot or Ultimate Power Jackpot.
Any spin of any value can trigger the jackpot game, but the higher bet will have a higher chance.
CasinoWizard’s verdict: 3 out of 5 stars
Playtech managed to design a slot game that has a progressive jackpot but also has a free spins game with a multiplier, a bonus game, two re-spins games, and a symbol that can issue a mega win.
When all of this is combined, you get a superb slot game!
