Gates of Olympus
Gates of Olympus from Pragmatic Play is, as the name suggests, themed around the Greek gods. The 6 reels sit on a shiny gold background that can only be the Temple in the Clouds, home of the Gods. There is the exciting All Ways engine game mechanic in play too, which means winning combinations occur anywhere on the reels. That extra reel can bring in some good fortune throughout your gameplay. The game is also very budget-friendly and has a bet range from just 20p to £125 per spin. There are a number of other top slot game features to be found here too, which are covered in detail below.
What Gates of Olympus is all about
The main standout feature of Gates of Olympus slot is the All Ways engine. To get a winning combination with this game mechanic, eight matching symbols need to land anywhere on the reels. There are no set paylines, so they don't need to follow those nor do they need to land in a cluster or be on adjacent reels. The symbols can land literally anywhere, as long as there are eight. Part of the experience of this slot is that it also has an impressive 96.5% RTP. But countering this is the fact that it's very high volatility, which means that wins can be few and far between. Surprisingly, there's no wild symbol on this game, but there are a number of other top features including the Tumble Feature, Multiplier Feature and bonus spins.
First up in the Gates of Olympus features is the Tumble Feature. Landing a winning combination lands on the reels activates this feature. What happens is that Zeus uses his powers and blasts all the symbols that made the win off the reels. When these symbols have disappeared, new symbols fall from the skies and replace them on the reels. These new symbols can make winning combinations with the process repeating itself until no new combinations are formed. Payouts are calculated following each of the winning combos. When this feature activates, it's best if there are the high-paying symbols such as the gold crown. The crown is the highest-paying symbol and landing 12 of them on the reels will award a 50x the stake payout. The low-paying gems also offer good wins.
On the right side of the reels is an animated Zeus. During the gameplay, this God will randomly come to life on any spin. When he does, this activates the Multiplier feature. When this happens, Zeus unleashes his orb onto the reels. There can be many of these orbs and each one will have a different multiplier attached. Impressively, these multipliers can range from as little as 2x the initial bet up to a whopping 500x. By getting more than one orb landing on the reels on the same spin, any multipliers listed will be added together boosting any winning combinations even more. The multiplier feature can occur in the base game, but also during the bonus spins. What this means is that some even bigger wins can be claimed on Gates of Olympus.
Bonus Spins Feature
The final feature is the bonus spins. This is triggered when 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols, represented by Zeus, land on the reels in a single spin. As soon as these land, they award 3x, 5x or 100x the value of your bet for that spin. This also triggers the bonus spins feature and awards15 bonus spins. In addition, if a multiplier lands, this is added to any of the existing multipliers that have been accumulated during the progress of the game. If this wasn't enough, there's the chance to re-trigger the bonus spins feature within the bonus spins. In fact, re-triggers are unlimited. To do this, three more scatters must be landed and this will add 5 more bonus spins to the tally. Free rounds can be bought for 100x your bet.
Gates of Olympus Summary
