Slot Review: The Golden Owl of Athena by BetsoftPublished July 14, 2018 by Elana K
Betsoft is bringing Greek mythology to life with its newest slot, The Golden Owl of Athena, a visually impressive game that includes wilds, scatters, and free spins.
Betsoft is bringing Greek mythology to life with its newest slot game, The Golden Owl of Athena, released in June 2018. Known and respected by the ancient Greeks as a symbol of knowledge, the owl takes center stage in Betsoft’s new slot, acting as both the wild and scatter. It also holds the key to unlocking the Free Spins feature, which is where the main action of the game lies.
The Golden Owl of Athena is a charming and visually impressive slot with 5 reels, 10 paylines, and an RTP of 95.05%. Bets range from $.10 to $10 and there's a maximum win of $562,200. It's playable on all devices.
Reel symbols include Greek-style letters, a temple, a tree of knowledge, cup, helmet, and spear, all things associated with the goddess Athena in Greek mythology. There’s also a symbol of Athena herself, though not the wild, and it's the highest paying symbol on the grid.
In the base game, the Double Up feature can be triggered after a winning spin; the feature is a coin toss that can double your winnings if you pick heads or tails correctly.
The Free Spins feature is what this game is all about. It can be triggered when 3 or more owl symbols land anywhere on the reels. Depending on how many owl symbols land, you’ll win 8, 12 or 20 free spins. During the Free Spins feature, the slot will turn one random symbol special for all of the free spins; if enough special symbols land on the reels, they’ll expand and take over a whole column, rewarding you with bonus wins.
Ancient Greek themes are nothing new to the world of slots, but Betsoft’s spotlight on the owl of Athena certainly is a fresh take; moreover, it’s a visually beautiful game. And while the game isn’t packed to the hilt with special features, there's enough of big-win potential to make it worth your while. Check it out at Betsoft online casinos.
