What’s The Deal?
Parthenon: Quest for Immortality slot is a much-awaited NetEnt blockbuster, and we couldn’t be more stoked to be reviewing it! This could be the biggest release since the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot from Stormcraft and Microgaming.
It sounds a bit like a Megaways slot (without the BGT license) and comes with 2x epic bonus features.
Buckle up! We’re off to Ancient Greece!
Graphics and Theme
The Parthenon was built on the Acropolis in 447 BC and is dedicated to goddess Athena. So somewhat later than the Scroll of the Dead slot which is set around 1570 BC (give or take a few years).
This awesome ancient building still stands to this day Wombat fans, so it should come as no surprise that this is where your slot action takes place.
Zeus and Athena are perched on either side of the temple-style reels (such a good looking pair!) and behind you’ll see Mount Olympus peering through the clouds.
The design has an epic feel to it, as does the soundtrack, with all that chanting!
Parthenon: Quest for Immortality Slot Game Play
Parthenon: Quest for Immortality slot has 6 reels and an unusual 4-5-5-5-5-4 row grid which allows for a whopping great 10,000 paylines. That’s not as many as other games like the Astro Newts Megaways slot, but it is hardly lacking in this area!
The game is medium variance and the max win is capped at x5000 your bet.
Avalanche reels are in play here which means after any win, the symbols involved will disappear, leaving spaces for a new set to drop in from above.
Wild Generation Zone
At the top of the reels you’ll see something called the Wild Generation Zone made up of 4 rows. If you hit a winning combo with an icon in this section, it’ll become wild and stay on the reels for the next avalanche drop.
And, if you get a winning avalanche that removes symbols below the wild, it will drop down and stick around for one more avalanche drop.
Giving you more chances for pays…
There are 10 icons on the pay-table in; the golden trident and the A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards are the kowr value symbols.
The premium- paying symbols are snaked-haired Medusa, The Argonaut ship, Pegasus and the green serpent. Medusa is the most lucrative icon – she will net you 40x your bet for 5 in a row.
The wild is the flaming gold pot, while the bonus icon is the blue Free Spins symbol
Landing 3x Free Spin symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger off this bonus feature.
Now you’ll be given 8 free spins. During the feature, you will collect scatters and for every 3 you pick up, you’ll be given 2x more free spins. Nice one NetEnt!
But there’s more… A win multiplier is also in play and will start at x1. But whenever a symbol turns into a wild in the Wild Generation Zone, the multiplier will increase – all the way up x20!
It’s a cracker. Parthenon: Quest for Immortality slot manages to pack all the thrills and spills of a Megaways release but without the mega volatility.
Instead you get a medium variance game with consistent average wins and bags of atmosphere…. Well done NetEnt, they are back to their very best with this Athenian bobby dazzler.
Wombat score: 5/5 A new possible favourite slot
