Playtech would like to welcome you to the Age of the Gods, a new and innovative online slot based on the Greek mythological gods of days long gone by.

Age of the Gods is here to proof that you can enjoy a visually appealing slot and relish in its gameplay at the same time. It is hard not to appreciate a game that tries to please fans of creative graphics inspired by mythological beings.
Playtech provides a slot with the basic 5 reels and 3 rows, but does not skimp on the playlines, offering 20 paylines. Besides the many paylines, it gratuitously awards the players with fascinating and colorful visuals, but also with exciting bonus features inspired by the Greek gods themselves. Age of the Gods ensures that you will leave thismythical and magical place with your pockets full of gold.
A Stunning Visual Adventure
The fact that Greek mythology is one of the best chronicled and most entertaining mythologies out there just serves to show that whatever it inspires can only become as excellent as the source material. The gods and heroes of this mythology are as flashy and vibrant as it gets, thus Age of the Gods is equally colorful and imaginative as the original stories. The interface is full of captivating moments that unfold on the reels, with visually enticing representations of the gods and other Greek symbols. The ice-cold background is the perfect stage for the Greek drama that plays in the front.
This mix creates a grand adventure that is designed to entertain and attract attention. Blue and gold are the prevalent colors. Of course, the gods and demigods all come as perfectly designed symbols, displaying their characteristics and strengths on the reels. Zeus, Poseidon, Athena will show you the way towards fortune, accompanied by the likes of Aphrodite, Hercules and Hades.
The Game of the Gods
Age of the Gods provides a multitude of symbols, each with their respective values. The game’s Wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols but the Age of the Gods symbols, which is the game’s Scatter symbol.
One of the most awarding bonus features of the game is the Pantheon of Power, where you need to land all of the 5 God symbols in consecutive order. Triggering this feature will give you the chance to multiply your bet with a 200x multiplier and reap the benefits the gods bestowed upon you.
No online slot would be perfect without a Free spins bonus round, and of course, Age of the Gods can’t wait for you to activate it. To activate the Free spins, you need to land 3 or more Age of the Gods Scatters on the payline. This will in turn request you to pick 3 matching gold coins from the grid. This determines which of the 4 Free spin modes you will play:
- Athena will award you with 9 Free spins and a multiplier anywhere from 2x to 5x during each spin
- Zeus awards you 9 Free spins with a multiplier that increases by 1x with each 3rd spin; the Wild will stay frozen in place in the central position on reel 3 for the entire round
- Poseidon will give you 9 Free spins and add 5 extra Wilds to the reels after every spin
- Hercules will grant you 9 Free spins with a Hercules Stacked Wild on reel 3 during the entire round
If during the coin picking round you pick 3 Hades, the round will end there. Likewise, when the Free spins round ends, you are taken to a separate screen where you can win more Free spins.
The game also features a progressive jackpot that can be won randomly depending on the size of your bet, so the higher your bet, the greater the chance to get your hands on the jackpot.

With an entertaining visual theme and playful graphics, this leaves nothing to complain about, especially with the rewarding bonus features and progressive jackpot.
