Gates of Olympus Slot
Mythology-themed slots seem to be widely popular in the gambling market. Pragmatic Play is no exception to that rule at all, as their brand new 2021 release Gates of Olympus. This slot features a 6 reel 5 line grid and boasts a RTP of 96.5%, although it varies per the Bonus Feature.
Gates of Olymous also uses the All Ways system, which means as long as you land enough symbols to form the winning combination, you win. Their position won’t matter in the slightest. But the other side of the coin is the high volatility of this slot, so getting a winning formation will be a tough task.
Available bets start off at C$0.20 and reach the maximum of C$100. Pretty standard range for a Pragmatic Play slot. As for the features, there’s plenty to keep you entertained, so let’s dive into them.
Gameplay & Bonus Features
Ascend to Mount Olympus, reach the gates and you shall meet many Ancient Greek deities. Gates of Olympus offers top-notch graphics that are up to the modern standards plus the soundtrack will help you both get pumped and get immersed into the world of Ancient Civilization.
There are five low-paying symbols in this game and all of them are represented by gemstones of different colors. High paying symbols, surprisingly, don’t feature any gods or goddesses. Instead they take the shape of a gold crown, goblet, sand timer and a gold ring.
To form a winning combination, for lower-value icons it’s enough to land 8+ matching symbols, while high-value symbols require 12+. The regular symbol that will earn you the most is a gold crown, getting 12+ of it at the same time will win you 50x your stake.
Unfortunately, Pragmatic Play has decided against adding a Wild Symbol into Gates of Olympus. The Scatter is there however, and it features Zeus himself in all his glory. And you should aim to see more of him as he will unlock a Free Spins Feature to challenge the player!
The feature that you will encounter both during the base and bonus games is the Tumble Feature. Every time you score a winning combination, the winning icons will disappear from the reels. Instead, new symbols will tumble down from above to take their place. If you are lucky enough, these symbols might form another winning combination, resulting in a consecutive win. This can go on indefinitely, as long as new combinations can be formed.
When you start the game, you will see a Zeus statue by the reels. This statue actually serves a purpose. At any point during the game, it can come to life and drop the orbs onto the reels. These orbs will carry a random multiplier from 2x to 500x. If you get more than one multiplier, all of them will be added together and your win will be boosted based on the total value!
Land 4 or more Scatter icons with a single spin to unlock the Free Spins Mode of this game. You will start the game with 15 Free Spins and will be given a multiplier depending on how many Scatters you got. 4 are worth 3x multiplier, 5 will give you 5x and 6+ shall pocket you 100x your bet.
If you land a multiplier symbol, and it will be included in the winning combo, then its value will be added to the global multiplier that lasts until the end of Free Spins and will boost your winnings.
You can land 3+ more Zeus Scatters and get 5 extra spins. And the best thing about this, there’s no limit to how many times you can retrigger the Free Spins feature!
Canadian players have an option to activate Free Spins whenever they want by purchasing the Bonus Mode. This, however, will cost you 100x your current bet.
Ante Bet Feature
Last but not least, there’s an Ante Bet Feature. It’s completely optional, the player has to decide whether or not they want to play with a boosted Scatter symbol appearance rate by 2x. If that’s the case, the cost of your stake will be increased by 25% but the probability of triggering a Free Spins Mode will rise as a result.
