This Greek-themed slot, with 720 ways to win, takes players into the heart of the amphitheatre, where they have the chance to win up to 3,265x their bet through Yggdrasil’s WildEnergy Game Engagement Mechanic (GEM), Hold & Respins, and free spins.

WildEnergy GEM

The WildEnergy GEM ensures that any wild symbols remain on the reels for subsequent spins, gradually moving down one row at a time until they reach the bottom. If three WildEnergy symbols appear at once, the Hold & Respin feature is activated.

Hold & Respin feature

During the Hold & Respin feature, players are awarded three spins, which reset each time a special symbol lands. Wild symbols collect all coin prizes shown on every spin, upgrader symbols increase the value of all coins, and collector symbols collect all prizes displayed.

Free spins

Triggering the free spins feature requires landing three scatter symbols. During this feature, a wild symbol is added to the top of reel three. The feature continues until there are no more wild symbols on the reels. The luckiest players may even activate a feature within a feature.

Gamingslots review

Year of Olympia slot is an ancient Greece themed slot with cartoon artwork and 5 reels of 3,4 and 5-rows with stacked symbols and 720-ways to win. Symbol pays for the 5-of-a-kinds are 1.2x bet downwards with Wilds in the middle reels and sometimes these will be persitent and drop down for more uses over successive spins. We get two bonuses here, a hold-and-respin collector feature triggered by 3 or more Wilds in view, but the better one is the free spins, requiring 3 or more bonus scatters but which can also trigger randomly, an unusual mechanic nowadays. In the free games there's no retriggers but the Wild on reel 3 will persist and drop down one row per spin each time it lands. No great potential here, but entertaining enough.

The Pros
Easy game to follow Frequent wins and gentle volatility Reasonable range of features
The Cons
Pretty juvenile in appearance Low base game win range Little hope of big pays in any feature
