Jason and the Golden Fleece
Jason and the Golden Fleece
The wombat says: If there are 2 things we love here at Wombat Towers, it’s a spot of Greek mythology, and innovative bonus rounds. Thankfully Jason and the Golden Fleece slot from Microgaming (the gamers behind the Arctic Fortune slot) delivers on both accounts.
So who was this Jason bloke then? Let us explain… Jason was a young hero who ventured off in his ship with the Argonauts on a quest for the Golden Fleece which brought immortality. Along the way he was helped by a totally mental witch called Medea that he married, he encountered the one-eyed Cyclops, and he met a bunch of (quite hot) Harpies – all while performing a series of near impossible tasks. Standard Greek myth fare then.
This epic-inspired slot from Microgaming has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay-lines. It’s all come a long way from the likes of the Kathmandu slot machine– also from the same design house. Your symbols on the reels are a bunch of nicely-rendered icons made up of characters from this famous Greek legend and include; Jason himself, his band of plcuky Argonauts, the Argo ship, Medea, the Cyclops, plus Chiron the Centaur, the Sirens, and Jason’s hometown of Iolcus.
Keep your eyes peeled for the Jason symbol Wombat Fans, as it has 2 jobs in this game. Firstly it acts as the Wild and will substitute for all other symbols on your reels (other than the Golden bonus symbol), but it will ALSO represent the Scatter symbol in this slot too. We always knew that Jason was a good bloke…
Any self respecting slot needs some free spins (try the Jewels of the Orient slot for more of these!) With Jason, you’ll need to land 3x or more of logos across the reels and you’ll set off the Free Spins round which means 10 free spins are yours, all with a 3x multiplier. Hurrah and huzzah! Oh, and another good piece of news for you; the free spins can be re-triggered. This game just gets better and better…
Jason’s Quest Bonus Round
Land 3x or more of the Golden Fleece Scatters and you’ll trigger off this multi-level bonus feature. Here you’ll get to help Jason along his (endless) journey, with 6 possible bonus rounds to play.
– First up there’s a simple Pick ‘em Bonus where you must choose 6 shields from a possible 12.
– Next, match symbols that the Harpie presents to you. You’ll either receive a cash prize or a multiplier bonus.
– Then there’s the Shipwrecked Argo that will reveal a prize which you can scoop up or gamble, if you’re feeling extra lucky.
– A Wheel of Fortune round in Crete at the mighty giant of Talos sees you awarded five spins.
– Then there’s the beautiful but deadly Sirens who present you with a straight High/Low card game – a bit like Bruce Forsyth’s Play Your Cards Right. Each correct guess awards a prize, and 4 correct guesses in a row will scoop you a sweet jackpot of 37,000 coins. Whoo-hoo!
– Finally, you reach the end of Jason’s quest where a dragon is taking a nap Choose potions to make the dragon sleep. The longer he sleeps, the more you win. But, if he wakes up before you’ve grabbed that ruddy Golden Fleece, you’ll be sent right back to the base game.
When it comes to multi-level bonus rounds, we haven’t enjoyed a slot as much as this one since we had a go at Hot As Hades! Jason and the Golden Fleece is a great game, with nice graphics, an awesome theme and even more awesome payouts. You’d be as mad as Medea herself to miss it!
