What’s The Deal?
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways slot is brought to us by Triple Edge Studios and Microgaming. And if you were left in any doubt as to where this game is set, it’s at the bottom of the ocean.
Microgaming are doing quite a few of these salty slots. The Silver Seas slot is another example, that one was developed with Gold Coin Studios.
Hunt for buried treasure alongside Poseidon, God of the Sea, with rolling reels and 4 fixed jackpots. Plus, of course, the BGT Megaways mechanic!
Graphics and Theme
The reels are framed in gold and flanked by greek marble pillars on either side – while the backdrop to your play is the deep blue.
The 4 chunky jackpots sit to the left of the reels and spill out of a treasure chest, and the fiery underworld sits at the bottom of the play area.
The sound effects are pretty good too, including Poseidon whose deep voice pops up every now and let you know that ‘fortune awaits…’
Let’s ruddy hope so.
Your reel symbols are made up of seashells, crabs, dolphins, bulls, horses and octopuses as your lower value symbols. Plus 4 premium symbols; emeralds, sapphires, rubies and Poseidon’s head in gold.
Poseidon’s trident is the wild icon and will only appear on the extra reel above the reel set. While the scatters are each of the 4 letters that spell GOLD.
The highest paying symbol is the golden Poseidon premium, which will net you a nice 50x for hitting 6 in a row.
Ancient Fortunes Poseidon Megaways Game Play
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways slot has the standard Megaways set-up of 6 reels, 2-7 rows and up to 117,649 ways to win. Just like the Cops ‘n Robbers Megaways slot then, which is hardly surprising given they are both Megaways slots!
Wow. Bonza. We are used to some pretty high numbers on games like the Punk Rocker slot machine but that takes the biscuit.
Place your bets from 0.40 – 40.00 gold coins per spin.
The slot is a high variance release with a max win capped at 23,000x your bet. Which is HUGE!
As with all Megaways games, rolling or cascading reels are in play. Any icons that are part of a winning combo are removed from the reels to make room for new symbols to drop in to replace them.
Further wins can then be made on each new drop. Bonza.
Jackpot Pick Game
This little extra is activated at random in the base game and will give you the chance to scoop one of 4 jackpots.
Now, 12 gold coins will appear on the screen. Pick a coin to reveal its hidden jackpot value, if you match 3x coins with the same amount you’ll scoop the corresponding jackpot. Hurrah!
Mini Jackpot = 15 x your total stake
Minor Jackpot = 50 x your total stake
Major Jackpot = 100 x your total stake
Mega Jackpot = 5,000 x your total stake
Land the letters ‘GOLD’ on the reels and you’ll be given 12x Free Spins.
Let’s face it, it’s not the easiest bonus to trigger, but manage it and you’ll be rewarded with a 1x win multiplier that increases after each winning Rolling Reel drop by x1. There are no upper limits and the multiplier does not reset after a no-win spin.
Best of all, you’ll get another 5 Free Spins for every new scatter that lands during the round.
There could well be some epic wins here!
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways slot is a straightforward mid- variance game with some well thought out features.
However you could be waiting a while for those Free Spins to trigger…
Good luck, Wombat fans!
