Age of the Gods Rulers of Olympus Slots

When you’re married, it’s inevitable that you’ll have an argument with your loved one eventually. That’s not really a big deal. Of course, when you’re a deity controlling all of Olympus and have all sorts of awesome powers? Then getting into a fight with your wife tends to have far more reaching consequences! Let’s see what Playtech has in store for us, shall we? Age of the Gods: Rulers of Olympus is played on a 5x3 board with 25 fixed paylines. Each time Zeus and Hera Wilds meet on the reels, they trigger the Battle for Power free spins. There’s also the Olympus free spins which double the number of paylines and introduce sticky Wilds! There’s the Thunderbolt bonus which creates up to seven Wilds on the reels. And we saved the best for last - the randomly activated progressive jackpot!

How to Play

Playtech never offered the best visuals and this slot shows it. There are a few animations, but they’re not the best we’ve ever seen. The background also shows Zeus and Hera ready to throw down, even if it takes half of Olympus with them! These graphics are actually remarkably average. This game is played on a 5-reel board, where each reel is three symbols tall. There are 25 fixed paylines in total, all of them paying left to right only. To win, collect three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, starting from the leftmost reel. All wins must follow one of the currently active paylines or the cash prize won’t be awarded to the player.

Betting Options and Payout

Gamblers can bet as little as $0.25 or up to $2,500 per spin. This is a great betting spread for everyone, especially for high rollers.To change your bet, simply tap the plus and minus keys under the Total Bet tab. The Playtech release has a high variance and an RTP of 94.06%, which is below the current industry average. Age of the Gods: Rulers of Olympus has not one, but four progressive jackpots you can win! They can trigger on any random spin. To win, you’ll have to play through a small special feature. Don’t worry, it’s not complicated.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbol design is a mixed bag, as it usually is with Playtech. Playing card royals aren’t that interesting, even if they’re made to appear Greek. In contrast, the deities look quite powerful and interesting! Still, they very clearly take a back seat compared to the Hera and Zeus. Hera and Zeus are shifting Wilds. When they land on the reels, Zeus and Hera’s Wilds will move right or left, respectively. When they both land on the same row, they trigger a free spin round. During the Battle for Power extra turns, the two gods clash, creating Wilds in their path. Free spins continue indefinitely until Zeus is eventually defeated. Land Olympus Scatter on reel five to win 7 free spins. The number of paylines is doubled, but the value of all icons is reduced, sometimes drastically. Up to 10 Zeus or Hera Wilds will also lock in place until free spins end. The best part? You can keep retriggering this bonus indefinitely. A bonus symbol on the reel 5 creates the Thunderbolt bonus. It creates up to seven Wilds in random positions on the reels. When the progressive jackpot is triggered, a 4x5 grid is revealed with 20 coins on top. Click on a coin to reveal one of the jackpot icons beneath. Match three identical symbols to win the associated jackpot.

Our Verdict

While we had fun playing Age of the Gods: Rulers of Olympus, it’s far from the best Playtech has ever created. Visually, it feels quite lacking. But the bad graphics are the only real complaints we have. Everything else is awesome and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we have.
