It’s time to put your sandals back on, Wombat fans. We’re heading back to Greece. Souvlaki and Chips, here we come!
Playtech’s “Age of the Gods” series has become a staple in the world of online slots, entertaining players with its mythological themes and exciting gameplay. Among these games, one of our favourites is the God of Storms slot which has the powerful gods battling it out in stormy seas.
Look and Feel
The visual design of God of Storms is top-end, as you would expect from this series. The game is set against a backdrop of a tempestuous sea with lightning striking the reels- we are immediately immersed in an ancient world of divine power and intrigue.
The symbols on the reels feature iconic elements from the Greek myths with majestic ships, mythical creatures, and the gods themselves. The graphics are crisp, vibrant, and do justice to the epic theme. In the background, you’ll hear the creaking sounds off the deck of a Greek ship and the occasional flock of seagulls. It’s all good!
The God of Storms has five reels, three rows and twenty pay-lines. You can activate from one to twenty lines. This is a low-volatility game.
As well as the traditional playing card symbols drawn in a Greek style, there are higher-paying symbols like a staked ship Wild, an archer, a warrior, a swordswoman (or is that a goddess?) and the God of Storms himself, who’s got a big pair of lungs on him.

There are two wild symbols: the world WILD carved out of a 1×3 marble slab, and the Ship Wild which is also a 3-row-high elongated symbol. Both symbols land on the middle three reels of the game.
When the Ship Wild lands on the reels in its entirety (the whole 1×3 symbol), it triggers win and then a unique feature where the God of Storms appears to the right of the reel set and uses his powers to blow the wild symbol to the left, awarding a re-spin every time with increasing multipliers. He’ll blow the Ship Wild right off the screen, and the multiplier boost can hit 5x.
If you like the divine theme and innovative features of God of Storms, you might also enjoy the other titles in the “Age of the Gods” series, such as “King of Olympus” or “Fate Sisters.” Additionally, slots with re-spin wilds, such as NetEnt’s Starburst offer a similar gaming experience.
the other cool thing about this game is you have a chance of triggering the Age of the Gods progressive jackpots. Any spin can trigger an entry, it doesn’t have to be a winning spin. The more you bet, the higher your chances of triggering it.
You are guaranteed a win of at least one of the jackpots.
The Jackpot game has a grid of 20 coins in a 5×4 grid. it’s a Pick ‘n Win game. You must match 3 coins of the same jackpot symbol (Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power).
The big talking point of God of Storms is undeniably the shifting wilds and re-spins mechanic. This innovative twist on traditional wilds adds an interesting twist to the game. It looks good too when the God of Storms blows the wild symbol across the reels.
Playtech’s God of Storms slot looks great and has a great main feature.
Wombat Score: 4.5/5
There he blows! Look out for those moving wilds and re-spins.
How do you trigger the free spins?
You will need to see a complete Ship Wild symbol (one reel wide by three rows high). They only land on the middle three reels. Ideally you want the Ship wilds to land on reel 4, because they are then blown to the left and pick up an extra multiplier boost on each re-spin. The further to the right they land, the higher your multipliers will be at the end of the re-spins.
