Sweet Bonanza meets divinity in Pragmatic Play’s heavenly new instalment Gates of Olympus Slot, and Zeus himself has opened the gates of Mount Olympus so that all may tangle with the deities in search of godly wins.
Gates of Olympus Slot looks to be an exciting and volatile gaming experience from Pragmatic Play, who very rarely fail to impress with their aptitude and talent in making memorable games with immense replay value.
Let us see what Zeus, God of the Sky, Lightning and Thunder has in store for us mere mortals.
The theme for Gates of Olympus Slot is as godly as you’d expect. Stood upon the golden plateau of Olympus is the God himself Zeus, floating next to the reels in all his godly majesty.
Surrounding him is the pillars of Olympus that are aflame, which gives a nice touch to the game in terms of its animation.
Other parts of the game such as the symbols, reels and its border are adorned with gold, further adding to the extravagant and lavish fashion of Olympus
In usual Pragmatic Play fashion, there are a lot of options for the player to choose from when customising your bet options.
Bets can be changed by Bet Level, Coin Value or Total Bet, with a minimal option of £/€0.20 and a high option of £/€100. There are plenty of different options in between, so you can be confident that there’s an ideal option for you.
The top symbol in Gates of Olympus Slot is Zeus’ Crown, followed by an Hourglass, Ring and Chalice. Low paying symbols are Red, Purple, Gold, Green and Blue in order of highest to lowest paying.
Gates of Olympus Slot adopts a familiar, yet exciting pay way mechanic seen previously in games like Sweet Bonanza.
To connect a win, you need at least 8 symbols of the same type anywhere on the screen.
The game also employs a Tumble Feature, which means that winning symbols are removed from play, leaving a space for new symbols to fall in via a cascade, potentially creating more winning combinations.
This can result in an exciting chain reaction of multiple hits per spin, and it doesn’t stop there, as Pragmatic Play have also included multiplier symbols
Multiplier symbols are present on all reels and can hit randomly during any spin in both the Base Game and in Free Spins.
The multiplier will have a random value from 2x to 500x, which will be applied once all tumbles have ceased, and no more winning combinations are possible.
It’s worth mentioning that Pragmatic Play have included what they call an ‘Ante Bet’ within the game.
This will change the bet multiplier from 20x to 25x. 20x is the standard option, with no enhancements to the frequency in which Free Spins land naturally but gives players the option to buy the bonus (non-UK only).
25X will up your stake, but it will double your chance of landing Free Spins. The bonus can not be bought when Ante Bet is active.
Free Spins are awarded when 4 or more Zeus Scatter symbols are present anywhere on screen, with 15 Spins up for grabs if you land 4.
During Free Spins, whenever a multiplier symbol lands and the spin results in a win, the multiplier value will get added to the total multiplier.
Whenever a new multiplier lands and the spin results in a win, then the new multiplier will be added to the total, and the win will be multiplied by the total multiplier thus far in the round.
The game can be re-triggered, offering an additional 5 spins for every 3 Scatter symbols that land.
Gates of Olympus Slot is a Bonus Buy Slot. Non-UK players have the option to buy their way into the bonus round, providing that the Ante Bet is not active. This will cost 100x your current bet.
There is A LOT to be excited about with Gates of Olympus Slot, offering a similar experience to what Sweet Bonanza did. It does differ from Sweet Bonanza in more ways than its theme though.
For one, Gates of Olympus Slot introduces a new total multiplier in the bonus game, which was not present in Sweet Bonanza where you needed a new multiplier to land on every new spin for it to be applied to the win.
Because of this new feature, Gates of Olympus is ever more exciting with every multiplier that you land, with wins of up to 5,000x available as the maximum win, which would make you feel as high and mighty as Zeus himself.
Overall, it’s just a highly enjoyable game, with a great theme, immense excitement, great replay value and impressive stats with an RTP of 96.50% and high volatility action.
Gates of Olympus Slot will be available to play on selected Online Casinos on the 25/02/2021.
