Guardian of Athens Slot by Quickspin invites you to travel to Ancient Greece where you will marvel at history among the Gods.
Beautiful Greek architecture, a rich history and more importantly gold await you in the temple of Athena.
Ancient Greek Mythology has long since been a staple on the world of gaming. Its intriguing culture continues to captivate, and tales of the Gods live forever, told through many forms of entertainment, including slots many times.
Guardian of Athens certainly looks impressive when you first load it up, but how does the gameplay hold up?
Guardian of Athens has impressive visuals, with prominent Greek Statues either side of the reels. Mountains can be seen subtlety behind the statues, and the music in the game is delicate and wonderous.
There’s definitely a little bit of a tranquil vibe, which goes well with the sacred temple theme.
Guardian of Athens focuses on one Goddess in particular, Athena, The Goddess of War and the female counterpart of Ares.
Betting options in Guardian of Athens are quite extensive. The lowest option available is £/€0.20, and the highest option is £/€100. There are plenty of different options in between, so there is something for everyone here.
The highest paying symbols in the game are the Wild Shields and the Golden Vase, followed by the Golden Horn, Greek Helmet, Owl and Dagger.
Low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J & 10.
Guardian of Athens is a 5-reel Slot that uses 20 pay lines.
All of the pay lines are active at all times, regardless of your stake, so you need not worry about your bet level affecting the pay lines.
Pay outs on their own for symbols across a line are not significant, but they can become much larger wins with the help of the Multiplier Wilds that are active within the Base Game.
Multiplier Wilds can appear anywhere on reels 1-5, substituting for any symbol except for the Scatter.
If 2 or more of these appear on a winning pay line, then each of the multipliers will be multiplied by each other.
In the Base Game, the multipliers attached to the Wilds may be 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x.
Multiplier Wilds can vary in value during the Fate Bonus, of which there are different options for the player to choose from.
3 or more of the Fate Bonus Scatter Symbols will trigger the Free Spins. There are 4 different options that the player may choose from, ranging from options with fewer spins but higher potential, and those with higher spins with less potential.
Those who have played Eastern Emeralds will be more than familiar with this style of bonus, and it’s great to have the option to choose how volatile you want the bonus to be.
Different Multipliers have dedicated Reels in the Fate Bonus.
|Reel 2||Reel 3||Reel 4||Reel 5|
Eastern Emeralds was a fan favourite from Quickspin back when it released, and those that enjoyed that can rejoice knowing that a very similar alternative exists in the form of Guardian of Athens Slot.
The Base Game can get a little bit stale after a while, but Free Spins frequency isn’t too bad.
Even though the Free Spins aren’t excessively hard to get, the dream of landing one of the top multipliers can often feel like a bit of a pipe dream. Still, it doesn’t mean that Guardian of Athens Slot isn’t capable of some great wins, even without the maximum multiplier. You only need to connect a few, seeing as they multiply by each other, so there’s still something worth playing for.
Guardian of Athens isn’t quite as thrilling as the likes of Hammer of Vulcan, or as light-hearted as Loco the Monkey, so it definitely isn’t their blockbuster title.
But it’s still a decent game to have a go on, and with a max win potential of over 16,000x its hard not to want to have a spin on Guardian of Athens Slot!
