The Wombat says: the Legends Of Olympia slot from Genii is an old classic, but it’s still very popular. Launched over 10 years ago to celebrate the 2012 London Olympics. It celebrates one of the world’s greatest, and oldest, sporting events!
Did you know that the first ever Olympic Games was held in 776 B.C? They occurred during a religious festival honouring the Greek god Zeus.
Right then, let’s get oiled up, don our loin cloths and head back to Ancient Greece Wombat Fans! It’s time for some Olympic slot spins…
Look and Feel
Your sporting reels are framed by golden olive branches and the game’s background depicts a race track in a stadium. There are some decent design touches here, for example, when either of the Wilds completes a winning combo they will comes alive on the reels waving their Olympic torches. But on the whole, this game does looks a bit dated now compared to the HD graphics you’ll see in today’s video slots.
But it´s definitely Greek- we haven´t seen this much Hellenic paraphernalia since we played on the Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena slot from Play’n GO (that´s also worth a spin by the way).
Legends of Olympia Slot Game Play
Legends Of Olympia slot is a 5 reel game with 3 rows and 50 paylines, which is quite a few more than many newer slots like Rise of Dead from Play’n GO. If you a’d prefer a Ways to Win mechanic to the more traditional paylines, we´d recommend Banana Drop – that´s also a top game! Legends is more of an old school slot, but there´s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
In keeping with Olympics theme, your reels are filled with torch bearers, gold wreaths, wrestlers, long jumpers, javelin throwers, a big stadium, a Grecian urn , and last but not least, the medals in bronze, silver and gold.
There are 2 Wild icons in this slot, which are represented by the male and female Olympic torch carriers. They will both do the usual job of Wilds and substitute for all other symbols on the reels to make extra winning combos for you.
Finally, the Scatter symbol is the Gold Winners Wreath – and is also the most lucrative icon in Legends Of Olympia. It will pays out for 100x your bet for 5 anywhere on the reels, 50x for 4 and 15x for 3. Not bad at all…
Free Spins and Bonuses
Here’s some good news! There are expanding wilds in this game, and they land reasonably frequently Wombat Fans. You’ll catch sight of these blighters on reels 2 and 4, and they will expand to cover all 3 rows when they hit the reels. If you’re lucky and get both Wilds landing together on the same spin, you could make some nice wins.
Hit 3x of the Gold Wreath scatter symbols anywhere on the reels you’ll be awarded with 10 Free Spins. 4 scatters gets you 15 Free Spins and you’ll bag yourself a mega 20 free spins for landing 5x of the scatter symbols! All your in wins the Free Spins bonus will come with a 2x multiplier and the round can be also re-triggered for more cash and gold medals!
The truth is Wombat Fans, Genii’s Legends Of Olympia slot has seen better days. The expanding wilds are a nice extra and the Free Spins feature with its 2x multipliers can bring home the wins – but it lacks the top notch visuals and exciting game play you will find in today’s online slot games. But if you want something easy and more traditional to play it could be worth giving it a spin.
Wombat score: 3.9/5
