Age of the Gods Goddess of Wisdom Slots

Released in August 2016, Goddess of Wisdom is another addition to the Age of the Gods series, but unlike prior instalments, this one focuses on a single character – the Goddess Athena, known for her wisdom and courage, who stood as a stalwart protector of the city of Athens, which was named after her. Now, embark on a journey in this 5x3 slot to earn the favour of the Goddess of Wisdom, as you uncover her treasured armour, and follow along Wilds and Scatters to find great boons.

How to Play

The Age of the Gods series is rather popular, so it comes as no surprise that Playtech have put a lot of effort to make it look gorgeous. The reel design and backdrop work well with each other, and even the presence of poker icons somehow doesn’t detract from the general theme. Goddess of Wisdom wants you to bask in its glory as you spin it, much like the Greek Gods of old were revered back in the day. The gameplay can be very fun or frustrating depending on what sort of player you are. The presence of a progressive jackpot and a free spins special feature will entice many to keep spinning the reels, as will the fact you are constantly bombarded with small wins, recuperating your losses a little bit. This strikes a somewhat dangerous balance which can easily spiral out of the player’s control. And while the Autoplay option is passable, it isn’t anything special. The lack of loss and win limits are annoying, but the remainder works quite well, and it even gives a decent range of spins.

Betting Options and Payout

Winning in Goddess of Wisdom can be an oddly difficult affair. While there are plenty of options to do so, and smaller wins pile on quickly, it serves to entice you and make you spend more and more. The thing is, even the larger wins can be deceptive about things. Despite the fact a lot of spins will give you back some of the money you spent, that money still disappears fast if you aren’t careful. If you win a jackpot or are lucky enough to get a large win in the free spins section, we advise taking what you won instead of trying to gamble further. While the 20 paylines are flexible, your odds of winning are substantially lowered without them. As such, you will probably be looking at a minimum bet of $0.20, which can go up to a $1,000 per spin, which is reserved for high rollers.

Symbols and Extra Features

The game has a fair amount of icons, mixing between poker card symbols and unique artwork done for Goddess of Wisdom itself. The Playtech release manages to pair them well, and the artstyle is well done, with some of the icons being used for the free spins bonus. Said special feature is activated by Owl Scatters. Find three or more owls and you will enter a Battle Game, in which you choose the shield, the helmet, or a suit of armour. These symbols each give a different type of extra round bonus option, and all three choices have their allure. Take your pick, and dive into battle. Wilds take on the shape of the Goddess herself. Athena can appear on the second, third and fourth reel, and replace any icon except for Scatters. While she has no cash prize of her own, she is quite useful in securing wins, and has the ability to expand to cover an entire reel during the free spins bonus.

Our Verdict

It isn’t surprising to find that Age of the Gods has grown in popularity. Using the basic gameplay of other popular Playtech slots and fitting them along an interesting theme of Greek mythology was a recipe for success, and Goddess of Wisdom is no different. The game is fun to play, but taking home a substantial win can be quite difficult.
