Slot Review: Rise of Olympus by Play'n GOPublished September 10, 2018 by Elana K
Play’n GO’s Rise of Olympus is a fun, fresh take on a theme that’s been done many times. And with a maximum payout of 5000x your bet, there's potential for some truly big wins.
Ancient Greece-inspired slots are nothing new, but Play’n GO's recent slot, Rise of Olympus, is a different take on a familiar theme. Instead of classic paylines, Rise of Olympus lets players score wins by landing a minimum of 3 matching symbols in 1 row, vertically or horizontally. As you spin, Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon stand to the right of the grid, taking you through Heaven, Hell, and the Sea and helping you score wins.
Rise of Olympus is a 5x5 video slot that features a Greek god to the right of the grid (Zeus, Hades, or Poseidon) and a charging meter to the left. Reel symbols include a lightning bolt, trident, harp, helmet, a Pegasus wild, and the 3 stars of the slot, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. The game has an RTP of 96.5% and is playable on desktop and mobile at Play’n GO casinos.
Hand of God Feature
The Hand of God feature in the base game is when the different gods help you score wins. When Zeus appears to the right of the grid, he destroys 2 sets of symbols on the reels, making room for new ones. When Hades appears, he transforms 1 set of symbols into another one. And when Poseidon appears, he adds 1-2 wilds to the reels.
Wrath of Olympus Feature
To the left of the grid, there’s a meter that gets charged whenever you land a winning combination. When it gets fully charged, the Wrath of Olympus feature is triggered. This feature gives you all 3 Hand of God actions.
When you land winning combinations, the winning symbols are destroyed. If you clear the grid, you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. During this feature, you can pick 1 of the 3 gods, each of whom offers a different free spins package. Zeus gives 8 free spins and 2 in recharge, Hades gives 4 free spins and 4 in recharge, Poseidon gives 5 free spins and 3 in recharge. The recharge spins are free spins that you get after the meter gets fully charged.
Play’n GO’s Rise of Olympus is a fun, fresh take on a theme that’s been done many times. And with a maximum payout of 5000x your bet, there's potential for some truly big wins. But you’ll need the help of the Free Spins feature in order to achieve them, so make sure to choose your free spins package wisely.
