The design in this underwater adventure isn’t bad for a Novomatic-powered game. The plain reels feature lower value royal values as well as a cornucopia, a harp, a golden vase and a Spartan warrior’s helmet. The bearded figure of Poseidon is the game’s most lucrative standard symbol – land 3, 4 or 5 of those on a payline and you’ll receive a payout of 1, 2 or 4 times your total stake. Symbols can spin in colossal 3×3 formation on the middle 3 reels. The golden temple is the wild. It doesn’t offer any payouts but it does substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter.
The golden coin is that scatter. When this colossal 3×3 symbol appears in full and fills the middle 3 reels, you’ll trigger the game’s Free Games feature. On offer here are 10 free spins. Before those free spins begin, 1 of the higher value Poseidon, helmet, vase, harp or cornucopia symbols will be chosen at random. Only this symbol will appear as colossal during the feature.
Like many games in the Novomatic catalogue, Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon is a very simple game. The base game ticks over but the best opportunities arise in the feature. Land 1 of the highest value symbols as the colossal symbol and the coins can quickly mount.
The design isn’t overly flashy but the visuals are decent enough. You can expect Novomatic’s rather Marmite generic backing track. Many Novomatic games are highly volatile. Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon isn’t one of them. The variance here is in the low to medium range.
This ancient Greek adventure is a simple, entertaining one. If you enjoy Novomatic’s usual blend, then all the regular ingredients are on offer in Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon. If you want something more volatile, Lord of the Ocean (also by Novomatic) is a better alternative.
