Ancient Greece is a popular theme for slot games, and the Battle for Olympus is based on the old stories of Greek mythology. Every aspect of the game remains true to this theme, and the slot includes aerial battles between the gods Zeus and Hades. Through the marble reels of the game there is a stunning swirl of golden and purple clouds, and the gates of Olympus are visible in the distance.
Ancient Greeks believed that Mount Olympus was inhabited by the gods, headed by the powerful Zeus, and this is the reason Greeks used to be called Olympians. This slot game, Battle for Olympus, has five reels with three rows, and up to fifty pay lines that can be used. It is produced by Amaya Gaming, and is one of their most visually attractive slot games.
The Symbols Reflect the Old Greek Gods
The symbols in Battle for Olympus include both Zeus and Hades, who are the symbols with the highest value, and a Chariot, Poseidon’s Trident and Hermes’ Winged Helmet. The classic playing cards from Ten through to the Ace represent the symbols with the lower values, and they appear jewel tones on a celestial background. Winning combinations can be formed by landing both Zeus and Hades on any active pay line.
The three headed Cerberus is the Wild symbol in Battle for Olympus, and as such can substitute any other symbol in the game to form winning combinations, apart from the Scatter symbol or bonus symbols. The Wild will multiply by three any winning combinations that it may have helped to form. The music in the background is fairly battle themed, and you will see some catchy animations when you hit a winning line.
Scatter Symbols will Give Some Great Prizes
The Scatter is the lovely goddess Athena, complete with a Shield. If you land three Athena symbols at one time and any wins you have made will be multiplied by two. Four Athena symbols will get you a multiplier of twenty five, while five Athena symbols appearing on the reels will reward you with a huge multiplier of 250 times your winnings.
The bonus symbols are three icons, with the word Battle spelled out on one, For on another, and Olympus written on the third. These symbols appear on reels one, three and five respectively.
The Big Battle Bonus
To launch the bonus mini game in Battle for Olympus, you have to land the three bonus symbols, Battle, For and Olympus on reels one, three and five. There is now going to be a fight, and you get to choose whether you will be Zeus or Hades in the coming battle between the two. You are taken to another screen, where you are given five attempts to strike your opponent with a random credit prize awarded for each attack. The winner is determined by stopping the moving slider as close as possible to the centre of the slider. Each hit will give you a prize. If you win the first four hits you earn the Perfect Play Credit award, and get to miss the fifth attack.
Battle for Olympus offers plenty of betting options, and allows you to combine your choice of the fifty pay lines with the coin values you want. This game can also be played for free at most online casinos, until you decide you want to wager real money.
