My Big Fat Greek Video Slot!
You’d be forgiven for thinking this is a been-there-done-that theme – gods of varying pantheons have always been a slot machine regular; whether Egyptian, Norse, Roman or Greek, it’s all been done before… Not like this it hasn’t! Wazdan’s latest theistic offering is a spectacular example of using a known theme to introduce an array of new and exciting bonus features into the market.
Wazdan sets the scene with a 5 x 3 game grid in a Greek temple set atop Mount Olympus, surrounded by a bank of clouds and two Greek Gods: Zeus and Aphrodite. Zeus stands to the left of the reels in all his silver fox glory, firmly grasping a large lightning bolt, while a golden bird perches on his shoulder; on the other side is an Aphrodite who is clearly modelled on blonde bombshell Pamela Anderson; she wears what could loosely be termed a toga (in that it’s white and pleated) and holds a red rose.
The lightning bolt and rose respectively are also tokens of the Zeus and Aphrodite bonus spin meters, which rest above the reels at the top of iconic pillars. Collect enough lightning bolts or roses and you automatically launch one of the exciting bonus games!
The toolbar below the reels lets you control all of the regular Wazdan bells and whistles, including the latest one: the shopping cart. This unassuming feature allows you to jump the queue and purchase a bonus game rather than having to wait for your luck to come in!
Keeping it in the family, the highest paying symbols feature a host of familiar godly faces, starting with Zeus as both the highest paying symbol and the wild, followed by Hades, Hera, Apollo, and Poseiden as the scatter. The royals feature as the lower valued symbols – A, K, Q, and J – which all have the same payout.
Extra symbols include gold medallions embossed with Zeus’s lightning bolt and Aphrodite’s rose; these can be collected to trigger bonus games, Zeus Free Spins and Aphrodite Free Spins.
Power of the Gods has five explosive features starting with the ink-credible bonus game: Kraken Free Spins. This great bonus game also treats you to multipliers, re-spins, and moving reels. The feature is triggered by landing between three and five Poseidon scatters, which also have the same payout as Hera:
5 x Poseidon = 2500 = 20 spins
4 x Poseidon = 500 = 15 spins
3 x Poseidon = 125 = 10 spins
The Aphrodite Free Spins feature is triggered by collecting 6 of her golden rose medallions and entitles you to 5 free spins with cascading reels and multipliers of up to 7x your stake. Collecting all 6 of the Zeus lightning tokens activates a bonus game with 5 free spins – after each spin the game loads with up to 6 wilds which overlay other symbols at random. It is in this game that the biggest jackpot of 2000x can be won.
Finally, there is the Wazdan iconic gamble feature which is triggered after every winning payline. It gives you the opportunity to double your payout if you win. However, lose and you lose it all!
This video slot is widely available online but can be reliably found at PlayLive casino.
Power of the Gods: Pantheon is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Linux and Android. Recommended browsers include Safari, Chrome, Edge and Firefox.
One of Wazdan’s best tools is that it lets you set your own volatility; higher volatility means bigger but less frequent wins and lower volatility equals smaller but more frequent wins. Set the volatility that works for you and make sure that you know what your bank can afford.
Don’t be tempted by the shopping cart tool unless you have serious cash to burn; the chances of you breaking even are slim to nil, so while it might be a rush, it will only eat into your bank roll.
This is a truly exceptional video slot from Wazdan, the special features and bonus games keep things lively and interesting with just enough wins to make it worth your while.
