Follow Apollo the God of Archery and SpinPlay Games into their newest release, Amazing Link Apollo!
Apollo joins a world of Slots with a heavy concentration on divinity, and as a god of archery, music, dance, prophecy, truth, healing and more, he’s just as qualified as any to join the ranks. Perhaps with such an impressive CV Apollo may also become known as the god of big wins?
In this Amazing Link Apollo Review, we’re paying a visit to Ancient Greece and one of the twelve Olympians to see how he measures up to better-known gods like Zeus and Poseidon who have hogged the limelight for too long!
Amazing Link Apollo Theme
SpinPlay games have certainly done a stellar job with the design of Amazing Link Apollo. In the background, you’ll see scenery so beautiful that you’ll think you’re in Olympus itself. To complement the godly theme, even more, is the divine music, which sounds both beautiful and dramatic.
We’re very impressed with how Amazing Link Apollo looks, but how does it play?
Despite the breathtaking theme, we know you’ve noticed those jackpots at the side of the reels. More on that below.
Amazing Link Apollo: The Base Game and Features
Amazing Link Apollo is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed pay lines. It can be played from as little as £/€0.20 per spin, or as much as £/€50 per spin. The highest paying symbol is Apollo, which comes as a Stacked Wild. This substitutes for all symbols except for Bonus Symbols and Amazing Symbols.
Other high paying symbols is the Horse, Carriage, Harp and Vase. Low paying symbols are Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 & 9.
Unfortunately, there doesn’t look like there’s too much action to be had within the Base Game. The win capabilities are okay, but not amazing. Thankfully, there are a few features integrated within Amazing Link Apollo to up both the excitement and the potential.
The Amazing Link Symbols are portrayed by golden orbs with real money values. Landing 6 or more of these triggers the Amazing Link Feature.
3 respins are awarded in this mode, and symbols are locked for the remainder of the spins. Landing any additional symbol will reset the spin count to 3, and the feature will continue as long as you continue to land new symbols.
Jackpot symbols may land to fill one of the spaces, except for the Mega Prize, which is obtained by filling all positions.
- Mini – 20x
- Minor – 50x
- Major – 500x
- Mega – 5,000x
The Mega Jackpot is the top prize in this slot, so you’ll be desperately wanting to fill all positions on the grid when you trigger this feature!
3 Bonus symbols trigger Free Spins.
In this mode, you choose the number of Free Spins and Amazing Reels. Amazing Reels only have Wild symbols and Amazing Symbols. Bonus symbols will award +1 Free spins, and the reel will be upgraded for the remainder of Free Spins as a result.
Amazing Link Apollo also offers something a little bit extra in the form of the Pick Feature, which can trigger at the end of any Base Game spin or Amazing Link Feature.
Each Base Game Spin or Amazing Link Feature may randomly trigger the Pick Feature.
In this mode, you’ll pick icons until you match 3 of the same type. Mini, Minor, Major or Mega Jackpots can be won in this feature, but it can’t trigger from within Free Spins.
Amazing Link Apollo: Our Verdict
Amazing Link Apollo has plenty of features to cater to players who are fond of the Hold&Win Type gameplay or those who have a soft spot for Jackpot Slots.
Amazing Link Apollo is relatively low potential in the Base Game, so you’ll definitely be wanting one of the features to see some real action. When you do start to see the features, things can get exciting very quickly. The Amazing Link Feature is definitely something you’ve seen before if you’ve played Hold&Win type slots, so you know already how eventful this may or may not be.
Sometimes, the lives dwindle away leaving you with a rather meagre showing for your efforts, and sometimes magic that can only be the result of a divine blessing can ensue with Jackpot Prizes.
We think the Pick Feature was a nice added extra. It definitely gives Amazing Link Apollo a little bit of extra depth, but overall, we think Amazing Link Apollo caters only to a specific type of player.
If you’re the type of player that loves weird and wonderful gameplay with innovative features, then Amazing Link Apollo won’t really appeal much to you. If you fancy yourself a bit of a Jackpot chaser, however, then Amazing Link Apollo has all of the right stuff to get you going, and a very nice design to go with it.
