Rise of Athena slot is another addition to Play’n GO’s Greek Mythology series. Which features epic slots such as Pandora’s Box of Evil, Rise of Olympus and their other Athena themed game, Athena Ascending slot.
Play’n GO are the Swedish studio behind huge hits like Book of Dead and the 24K Dragon slot …just in case you didn’t know!
And what a lucky Sheila Athena is! Not much more exciting than being omnipotent, goddess of war and the daughter of Zeus etc.
Welcome to Rise of Athena slot from Play’n GO!
There are 3 kinds of wild multipliers up for grabs which have my paws tingling with anticipation, so let’s stop gassing, and crack on.
Graphics & Theme
Your game play is set in a temple in the clouds, with the reels flanked by gold and marble colonnades. It’s go that epic feel to it like the Game of Thrones Power Stacks slot. Bring on the drama!
It’s all very godly and awe inspiring, even down to the epic soundtrack that sounds a bit like an Ancient Egyptian ditty… Well, it was the same time period give or take a few thousand years.
Your high value reel symbols are Athena herself, half bird/half horse Pegasus, a warrior’s helmet, and amphora and a scroll.
The 10, J, Q, K and A from the playing card deck make up the lower paying symbols. As you’d hope, Athena is the big daddy on the Pay Table, paying out a whopping great 150x your bet for landing 5x on a pay line.
Finally, the gold coin is wild and the white owl is your scatter symbol in the game.
Rise of Athena Slot Game Play
Rise of Athena slot has five reels, three rows and ten pay-lines, and a top win of 5000x your bet. That’s the same amount of lines as Inspired Gaming’s Chocolate Cash Pots slot, but this Greek game has quite a few more features up its sleeve.
In the old days a maximum win of 5000x would have raised an eyebrow – but with mega wins of 60,000x your bet to be found on some Nolimit City games, this doesn’t seem quite as impressive! Still, let’s say it’s a chunky to top jackpot.
Rise of Athena Bonus Features
When the Wild coin hits the reels it will flip over and transform a 1x, 2x or 3x multiplier. This will then be applied to any win:
– Gold coins with an x3 multiplier
– Silver coins with an x2 multiplier
– Bronze coins with an x1 multiplier
FYI: The wild symbols will appear only on the middle three reels and if you scoop a win with more than one wild – all the wilds will be multiplied together. This can lead to some exciting play.
Land 3x of the white owl scatter symbols and you’ll be given twelve Free Spins.
But just to be different the owls will now gift you decreasing win multipliers. Whenever a Wild lands, the 1x, 2x and 3x multipliers will become sticky and stay on the reels – reducing by 1x on each spin until there are none left.
It’s a nice idea, but we’re all about the increasing win multipliers!
The round can’t be re-triggered, so make the most of it.
Slot fans who like simple, yet effective game play are going to love Rise Of Athena slot.
Compared to Play’n GO’s other releases, it’s pretty uncomplicated but comes with wins big enough to give it a bit of edge.
As for the theme? This Wombat thinks they’ve done a pretty good job.
