Age of the Gods™: The Original Game
The mythologies of ancient Greece have shaped cultures and storytelling in the western world throughout the centuries since their creation. Almost everyone is familiar with the Greek pantheon and their stories. Even if you don’t know it, many of our day-to-day expressions and idioms come from these legends.
Little wonder that the stories of Ancient Greece are still being told today. The adventures of ancient mythological heroes like Theseus, Odysseus and Achilles are staples of cinema and literature in the 21st century and have made their way into other media including television, songs and even slots.
The Age of the Gods™ series consists of some of the most popular slots online. With over a dozen games in the series, not to mention Live Casino variants, Age of the Gods™ is both literally and figuratively titanic in the world of online casinos. Like Kaos in the mythos, the simply named Age of the Gods™ is the original game that spawned the series. Let’s see what makes it special.
Age of the Gods™ Design and Symbols
With plenty of Greek gods to choose from, this game has six of them appearing on the reels. Hercules, Athena, Poseidon, Aries, Aphrodite and of course Zeus are all high-paying symbols on this five-reel game. The laurel wreath wild is, fittingly, the crown of the symbols with the potential to pay out up to 500x your bet. These reels spin before the mighty Mount Olympus in a cloudy and ethereal setting, with celestial music to serenade you as you spin.
There are four Progressive Jackpots to be won in the original game.
Age of the Gods™ Bonus Features
The Greek god symbols in this game aren’t just here to look nice and provide higher-paying win combinations. The Pantheon of Power feature is triggered when all five line up on any active payline. The divine reward? A cool 200x payout on that line bet.
Age of the Gods™ also gives you four different free spins bonus features, each named for a different God. Triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols in the base game, you’ll be prompted to choose from a series of gold coins until you match three of the gods to begin a free spins feature.
- Zeus Free Games: featuring an additional wild symbol as well as a win multiplier that increases every three spins.
- Athena Free Games: each spin has a random win multiplier from 2x to 5x the base free spins winnings.
- Poseidon Free Games: up to five extra wilds will be added to the reels.
- Hercules Free Games: a stacked wild fills the entire third reel during free spins.
Age of the Gods™ Progressive Jackpot
One of the biggest draws of this game, and the series as a whole, is the four-level Progressive Jackpot. This can be triggered on any spin during the base game. The Power Jackpot is the smallest, followed by the Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power jackpot.
Players will win one of four jackpots by selecting from a screen of coins in the same way as choosing free games. Match three symbols and you’ll win the corresponding jackpot.
