I’m off to find my tunic and sandals as we are off to Ancient Greece again!
The Athens Megaways slot was released in November 2022 by Red Tiger Gaming, the people behind the Legend of Athena slot which is also from the same era.
This game will take you on a spectacular journey to Ancient Greece, so get ready to battle it out with Hades, Zeus and Poseidon, who all add powers to the reels, and play for a Herculean 19,993x your stake jackpot.
That’s over ten times the max win of the Hawaiian Fever slot: crazy!
There are various wilds on the reels, with plenty of action on the reels when the gods strike down and reward you. This game plays seamlessly on mobile devices and desktops with excellent graphics.
Red Tiger have pulled out all the stops on the design of this slot, creating a magnificent game set in Ancient Greece. The six reels are set in front of a hill with temples, homes and floating clouds rolling through eerie-looking skies.
The big mechanic is Megaways of course, with cascading reels. In true Megaways style, the reels can expand to create up to x117,649 winning combinations. That’s quite a few more than a traditional pay-line game like Jade Shuriken from slingshot.
The cascading reels mechanic allows you to go for multiple wins on one spin. Each winning combination will drop off the reels and new symbols fill the spaces to create more winning chances.
The wilds and multiplier symbols are granted by one of the three Immortal gods. We love the shaking reels that kick in before the gods distribute their rewards. Lighting strikes and cloudy reels add to the atmosphere when the immortals appear.
And the music fits perfectly, haunting and picking up the pace when a feature gets awarded.
In Athens Megaways, Red Tiger has kept the minimum stakes low, so you can start spinning for as little as 0.20, up to a maximum of 4.00. The volatility is high, but with that comes big potentials rewards with a maximum win of 19,993x.
The design of the symbols is all in keeping with the theme. The lower value symbols are letters from the Greek alphabet, and they will pay up to x0.8 of your stake for six on the reels.
The higher value symbols includes a Goblet, Harp, Shield and Helmet. The Helmet is the highest paying symbol and will pay x6 for six of a kind.
To hit the bigger wins, you will need to land one of the wild features or multipliers on the reels.
The Athens Megaways slot has been stuffed full with some decent features that spice up the gameplay; let’s take a look at what’s on offer:
Soul Pit Wilds
The souls of the dead can rise up from the ashes at any point and add random wilds to any of the four middle reels.
Poseidon will add super wilds as magnificent steeds on any of the four middle reels. These wilds will also add a multiplier value of between x2 to x7 that can result in some decent wins.
It is Zeus’s turn on the reels with this feature. He will send lighting strikes to the reels and reward you with a win multiplier on any winning spin.
Three temples scatter symbols will reward you with free spins, and you get to pick the god to guide you through the feature. Hades’ soul grants frequent wilds, Poseidon’s sea fury will add steed wilds with multipliers to the reels, and Zeus will send lightning strikes to multiply your wins.
In addition, with every cascading win, the multiplier nudges up to a maximum of 20x. Finally, every scatter that lands during the feature will reward you with an extra free spin.
We were really impressed with Athens Megaways, with that big maximum win. The visuals and background music make this game very immersive and it is packed with features, multipliers and wilds granted by the three generous gods.
