The Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus online slot, not to be confused with King of Olympus, is another instalment in Playtech’s ever-expanding Age of the Gods series. With five reels and 25 paylines, it follows the adventures of a famed classical figure and this time it’s none other than old-school strongman Hercules taking centre stage. Join him on his muscle-flexing quest, with expanding wilds, free spins and heroic battles against sea monsters. There’s even a chance to win four progressive jackpots!
Famed for his super-human strength and willingness to take on daring adventures, Hercules is the quintessential mythological hero. Think of him as an ancient version of The Rock. The son of Zeus is known for undertaking the Twelve Labours. These quests were monumentally tough and included slaying lions, killing multi-headed sea monsters, and vanquishing man-eating birds of prey.
He also captured or defeated creatures like the Golden Hind of Artemis, the Erymanthian Boar and the Cretan Bull. He even subdued Cerberus, the fearsome three-headed hound that guarded the underworld. The Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus slot game touches on a number of these themes, presenting them via some nicely rendered graphics and, at times, heroic sound effects. Naturally, it’s your task to deal with anything that comes Hercules’ way.
Along with the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A low-value offerings, the symbols in the game represent the mythology associated with Hercules. Expect to see golden fruit, a spiked club, a green jewel and even Cerberus spinning around the reels. Hercules himself is the wild, appearing only on the second, third and fourth reels. He stands in for all other icons except the Hercules scatter and the Hydra (sea monster) bonus.
Land three or more of the Hercules scatter avatars and you’ll get ten free spins (which can be re-triggered during the round if three more scatters pop up). All wins are tripled during this round. If the Hydra symbol appears anywhere on the first or fifth reels then you’ll enter a sub game where Hercules gets to battle the many-headed sea monster. Choose three heads to fire arrows at for cash rewards followed by a fourth to determine a multiplier for your total.
This comes in the form of two re-spins if you land the Hercules wild in the centre of the third reel or one re-spin if he pops up anywhere on reels two, three and four. As with Playtech’s other offerings, the Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus video slot boasts a progressive jackpot. This randomly activated feature offers one of four prizes: Power, Super Power, Extra Power or Ultimate Power. Expect a cash pay-out of truly Herculean proportions if you land the Ultimate Power!
