Load up Rise of Olympus or check out the free demo and you’ll discover the 5×5 grid filled with symbols. Choose your bet between €0.20 and €100 per spin. Each time you hit play, rather than spinning reels, the grid will refresh with new symbols.
The symbols in the game pay out for a line of three or more, either vertically or horizontally. Basic symbols are made up of the symbols of each God and then the gods themselves. There’s the helmet, trident, lyre and lightning bolt. Then there are the premium symbols, the Gods Hades, Poseidon and Zeus.
Finally, there’s the highest paying symbol in the game, the wild. Wilds not only substitute for other symbols, helping to form winning lines, they also payout. Landing five of the wilds on a line will payout 50x your stake.
Any time you land a win in the game, you trigger the Rise of Olympus bonus cascade. The wild symbol appears in the middle of the winning line, and symbols fall down the grid. With each consecutive win, a win multiplier increases by one, leading to big wins later in the chain.
Unlike other cascading slots, new symbols don’t fill the place of the winning symbols. Instead, once you clear the whole grid, you’ll unlock the Rise of Olympus free spins. You can choose from three different options four free spins that will add an extra four for each recharge, five free spins that add three more spins with each recharge or eight spins that add two more.
During the free spins round, you’ll receive the bonus feature of the God you chose plus the win multiplier doesn’t reset and can reach a maximum of 20x. If you clear the entire grid, you can instantly win 100x your stake.
During both the base game and the free spins round, the Gods can show up to use their powers on random non-winning spins. Hades transforms symbols, Poseidon adds wilds and Zeus destroys up to two sets of symbols.
The game has cascading wins, win multipliers and special bonuses on non-winning spins. There are also three different free spin modes you can choose from. Special bonuses include extra wilds, transforming symbols and destroying symbols.
Play’n GO has ensured that the game can be played on mobiles and tablets without the need to download any special software.
The game has an RTP of 96.50%. Volatility is high.
Rise of Olympus is brilliant fun, and with so many special features available, you’ll always have something happening on the screen. Volatility is high, but the rewards are definitely worth it with a big maximum jackpot. If you enjoyed other cascading type games from Play’n GO, you’ll no doubt have a lot of fun with this game too.
