Gates of Olympus 1000 Base Game

Gates of Olympus 1000 Base Game and Features

Gates of Olympus 1000 is a 6×5 Video Slot with a Scatter Pays mechanic. Wins are formed when 8 or more of the same symbol types land anywhere across the grid, regardless of position.

Gates of Olympus 1000 can be played for as little as £.€0.20 per spin, up to a maximum bet of £.€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. The minimum and maximum bets can be altered via the Ante Bet Feature. Gates of Olympus 1000 has a theoretical RTP of 96.50% and a max win cap of 15,000x. 

High-paying symbols fall to Crowns, Hourglass, Rings, and Chalices. Low-paying symbols can be seen as Red, Purple, Yellow, Green, and Blue Gems. There are no Wilds present.

Each time a win forms on the grid, all winning symbols will be removed, making room for new symbols to drop down from above via a Cascade Feature, with the possibility of enhancing or creating winning combinations.

Ante Bet

At the start of gameplay, you will have the option to activate the Ante Bet feature. Once active, this feature will increase your current bet by 25%. When the Ante Bet is on, your chances of triggering Free Spins are Doubled. (RTP 96.50%)

Multiplier Symbols

During random spins and cascades in the base game and Free Spins round, special Multiplier symbols with values between x2 and x1,000 can land on the grid.

These Multipliers will only activate if a winning combination is formed on the same spin. Once the Cascade Feature ends, the values of all Multiplier symbols in view will be added together and applied to the total win for that spin.

Gates of Olympus 1000 Free Spins

Landing 4, 5, or 6 Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 15 Free Spins and a payout of 3x, 5x, and 100x your bet respectively.

During Free Spins, each time a Multiplier symbol lands and a spin results in a win, it will be collected and stored in the Total Win Multiplier meter next to the grid.

Whenever future Multiplier symbols land at the same time as a win, the total Multiplier value is added to the Total Win Multiplier, and the total amount will multiply the total win for that spin.

Landing 3 or more Scatters during this time will award an additional +5 Free Spins.

Gates of Olympus 1000: Our Verdict

Play’n GO aren’t the only ones to slap a number at the end of a remake and call it quits – Pragmatic are at it too. Starlight Princess was the first, and now the popular and rather sculpted Zeus is back for his share of the limelight.

What to say about Gates of Olympus…It’s much of the same, but amped up. It’s been amped up quite significantly, with a max win potential of 15,000x, making it 3 times more capable than the original. With an identical RTP, we can’t really think of a reason to go back to the old Gates of Olympus at all.

Gates of Olympus is better in every way that we can think of, but the popularity of it rides on what you think of the mechanics it uses. Gates of Olympus has proven to be like marmite – some hate it, and some absolutely love it.

Overall, Not much has changed, but enough has changed to make it a very viable choice to those who liked the original, and want an upgrade.

Gates of Olympus 1000 and other Pragmatic Play titles are available to play at new slot sites in the UK
