The wombat says: We’ve had Ancient Rome, Ancient Egypt and now it’ the turn of the Ancient Greeks to take over our reels with their massive urns, pillars and plinths and wrath-heavy vengeful gods.
Yes, Wombat Fans this old Microgaming game from the people who brought you the Witches Wealth slot is based on Zeus the King of the gods and Hades was the King of the Underworld and the game sees these 2 Greek giants go head-to-head on top of Mount Olympus in an epic battle for the fate of humankind.
Well actually, all they really do is oversee your reels spin, but that doesn’t sound as impressive does it? Fire up the slot and see if you can’t get scoop some big wins. May the Gods be on your side!
Look and Feel
The animated graphics aren’t bad, although a little bit on the dated side- it’s from the Monster Mania slot era, or thereabouts. Your reels spin on some Ancient Greek ruins and flanked by walls of an temple with two Ionic columns either sides of them, while the soundtrack fits in nicely with the overall theme. The graphics on Play ‘n Go’s Olympus are better in my opinion.
Legend Of Olympus slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines- not as many as the Great Griffin slot, but still pretty hefty. Your symbols on the mythological reels are represented by the bronze spear tip, a golden goblet, a winged silver helmet, a decorative shield, the god Ares, the goddess Aphrodite, the sea god Poseidon.
Hades himself acts as the game’s Wild and will substitute for all symbols to give you extra chances at winning combos. Zeus is the Scatter and will trigger off the epic Free Spins when 3x or more appear across the reels.
Mystery Bonus Feature
Land 3x of golden coin ‘Bonus’ symbols and you’ll be transported to the River Styx where you’ll see a boat and a creepy cloaked figure. Click on the spinning gold coins and if pick 2x or more of the gold coins (not the silver ones) you’ll be be grated safe passage across the river to Hades’ hideaway in the Underworld where you must pick from a series of treasure chests each one containing a different cash prize. Pick wisely and it could be mega win time for you! He’s not a bad guy after all…
Zeus’ Free Spins
Once you set off the bonus, mighty Zeus will rain down a few lightning bolts from the left of the reels in the general direction of Hades – and aside from looking cool, it will also reveal the number of free spins that you’ll be receiving. Once Hades has scampered off the reels, the Free spins will start. And there’s more good news; The Free Spins round can be re-triggered, too. Cheers Zeus!
There’s Gods a-plenty, some nice animations, and a decent bonus rounds in Legend of Olympus slot. The graphics could do with a refresh to keep up with today’s slicker slots, but all in all, it’s a worthy addition to the ‘Ancient’ realm of online games, and gets a ‘thumbs up’ from us.
Wombat score: 4/5
Loses a point because there’s no autospin button. Which mean this wombat couldn’t go and make a cuppa… Boo.
