Blueprint Gaming is one of the best developers where design is concerned and Gods of Olympus MegaWays is another feast for the senses. As well as lower value playing card symbols, you’ll see Poseidon, Athena and Ares. Zeus is the best paying standard symbol awarding 25 times your total stake if you land 6 on adjoining reels. The Parthenon-style building is the wild. This substitutes for everything apart from the scatter.
The MegaWays game engine means that the number of symbols on each reel varies with each spin. The number of active MegaWays varies with each spin too. The minimum is 64 with the maximum a massive 15,625. On any spin, you could randomly activate 1 of the 5 Power Spin modifiers – you can also gain access by paying 50 times your stake:
- Wild Thunder feature - up to 10 wild multipliers are added to into play here.
- Colossal Thunder feature - between 2 and 6 reels will merge to create a single colossal block of one single symbol.
- Mystery Thunder feature - any Mystery Symbols will all morph into the same matching symbol and a payout calculation is made.
- Bonus Thunder feature - more scatter symbols are added here to increases your chances of hitting the free spins rounds.
- Respin Thunder feature - the winning symbols from the triggering spin are held and the reels spin again. The respins keep on coming as long as a new matching symbol or wilds joins the original combination.
Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters on the same spin and you’ll trigger the bonus round. You’ll then go on to play 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins. There are 4 different rounds to choose from here, each one offering different modifier extras. Like with the modifiers, you can buy entry for 100 times your stake with the Bonus Guarantee Bet feature. Anyway, here’s what you will benefit from:
- Wild Storm Free Spins feature - look out for thunderbolt symbols on the middle 4 reels. These all turn into wilds. Land 3 scatters to add extra free spins to your total and boost the number of active MegaWays.
- Rise of Olympus Free Spins feature - in this round, any wilds that lands on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 increases a multiplier by 1x. Collect 5 wilds and 2 more free spins are added to your tally.
- Almighty Wild Free Spins feature - look out here for 2x and 3x wild multipliers which can combine to boost payouts by up to 81x. Collect 3 scatters and the value of the wild multipliers increases. These can join together to deliver multipliers of up to 625x!
- Colossal Free Spins feature - a2-high roaming wild is in play in this round. When the wild stops, those positions become wild. Extra free spins, wilds and multipliers are activated by landing scatters.
We enjoyed Gods of Olympus MegaWays. The sound and visuals are terrific and there’s gameplay to match. If you like a variety of features, then you won’t be disappointed here. As far as variance goes, we’re in the medium to high range – you can win a cool 10,000 times your stake on every spin or free spin too.
There are already huge numbers of ancient Greek themed slot games available. This is one of the better ones. Throw in the MegaWays game mechanic with the top spec visuals and features and Gods of Olympus MegaWays becomes a highly playable and slot game and well worth a look if you like the theme.
I love the Almighty Wild Free Spins feature where wild multipliers can combine to give you huge 625x multipliers. On the look out for big multipliers? Primal MegaWays (from Blueprint Gaming) offers them – up to 7,776x!
