rise of olympus review

Do not tread heavily on the domain of the gods… They welcome you to Olympus, where lightning crackles in the air. But be warned, their wrath is the stuff of legends, and if it turns to your favour, you will feel blessed by Zeus himself.

In this epic, Zeus and his brothers, Poseidon and Hades, guide you from the depths of the underworld to the heights of Mount Olympus on a journey of epic highs and crashing lows. You’re at the mercy of Olympus now, and it’s bound to be an experience like no other.

Industry legends Play’n GO summon you to the domain of Ancient Greece’s gods, specifically the three brothers, Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. Each with his own unique background and design features, the game cycles through the three gods, switching each time the matching god appears on the reels. Zeus holds dominion over the earth and skies, Poseidon over the watery depths of the ocean, and Hades the dark and fiery underworld.

With epic and powerful music underscoring your game play, you will truly feel like Hercules, travelling back and forth between these domains to complete his trials. At the end, your prize awaits… but will this very high-volatility game beat you, or will you triumph?

First things first: you need to place your bets using the Quick Betting Panel; this user-friendly feature allows you to select your ideal betting range by clicking on the + or – buttons. Once you’ve set this up you can jump straight into gameplay by clicking the green spin button, or you can make use of the autoplay function.

This feature lets you choose multiple spins while allowing you to keep on top of your bank with handy settings like maximum single win total, balance increase and balance decrease.

This game has three exciting features all based on Greek mythology and the mighty and wrathful gods: Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon. Portraits of the three gods represent high-value symbols, while their powers are represented as lower-value tokens: a blue lightning bolt for Zeus, a red horned helmet for Hades, and a green trident for Poseidon. The golden harp, with no remarkable features, is the lowest-value symbol; and the highest value symbol of all is the golden Pegasus coin, which is wild and can form winning combos both on its own and as a substitute token.

The first feature is Hand of God, which is triggered at random on any non-winning spin. You are plunged into a different god’s domain each time this feature activates, and it changes after each trigger. Each god symbol has its own unique function: Hades transforms one set of symbols into another, Poseidon adds up to 2 wilds, and Zeus picks two sets of any symbol and destroys them. You can win up to 5000x your bet during the Hand of God.

The next feature is Wrath of Olympus, which is activated once the Power Meter to the left of the reels becomes fully charged, entitling you to a free round. The meter is separated into 3 sections that are filled individually when you win with god symbols.

You can also win free spins when you clear the grid; you then get to choose 1 of 3 free spin options by picking a god. Picking Zeus gives you 8 free spins and then an additional 2 spins on top of the 8 every time he’s active – the extra spins are called recharges. Poseidon awards 5 free spins with a recharge of 3 spins, and Hades awards 4 spins and recharge of 4 spins. Any of these options can win you a maximum of 20 spins.

Rise of Olympus is volatility rated at Very High, and it carries an RTP of 96%

Online South African casinos offer this game, along with others by Play’nGO. 

Rise of Olympus is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Linux and Android. Recommended browsers include Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox and others.

This is a game with very high volatility, so proceed with forethought. You’re chasing the big wins here, but that also means bigger and more frequent risks and losses. Just as it is wise not to linger in the realm of the gods for too long, it’s best to limit your time and budget for a game like Rise of Olympus. Maximise your enjoyment and potential gains by taking more risks, but mitigate those risks through careful preparation.

This is a game for the lover of true slots excitement. With its very high volatility levels and comparably conservative RTP, your risk of big losses is much greater. We recommend this game for a more seasoned player who has experience navigating the games that ride the big waves. When you do tread on Olympus’ doorstep, be prepared to rise (and fall) like a god.
