Gates of Olympus slot from Pragmatic Play at first seems a pretty generic example of this oft-used Greek Mythology subject. Take Gods of Olympus Megaways slot by Blueprint, or any of WMS' numerous versions of their Zeus slots and Playtech's Age of The Gods Rulers of Olympus slot and you'll see pretty similar graphics and material included. Here we have the obligatory classical music, sounds of war when symbols land and Zeus hovering over a temple background so absolutely what one would expect and nothing more. Can we get some godly guidance here for our bankroll or will this prove to be the gates of hell instead?
On the reels...
We have six reels of five rows each here with stacked symbols and a scatter-pays mechanic on Gates of Olympus slot. Symbols pay anywhere and don't need to be adjacent, just anywhere in view as with the game this is clearly based on, Sweet Bonanza Xmas slot. You need 8 similar tiles in view and the pays range from 12-30 tiles as highest and 8-9 lowest. The pays for these are 50/10x for Crown, 25/2.5x Timer, 15/2x Ring, 12/1.5x Goblet with 5 Gem shapes ranging from 10/1x for Red down to 2/0.25x for Blue. Zeus scatters can appear on all 6 columns and if landing all of them, 100x is yours. Tumbles mean that winning symbols disappear and new ones fall from above and Winged Orbs of various colours can also appear which will offer up multipliers of 2 to 500x for your win, these are additive if more than one appears.
You get 15 for 4 or more Zeus scatters collected. During these, 3 more will offer +5 spins. Any win that occurs using a multiplier Orb is paid and any subsequent wins using an Orb will add that multiplier to the previous ones you already had. You are Limited to 5,000x and we are told this is a high volatility slot.
Gates of Olympus slot has a decent 96.50% RTP but brings little new for the player as Pragmatic have milked this mechanic to the limit now. All they've done is really change the graphics of Sweet Bonanza slot and change the way the multipliers work my making them increase during the bonus. The base game is pretty poor in all honesty and it's mostly about the bonus which is hard to trigger, even when using the 25% extra stake to 'double' your chance of a feature trigger. In all fairness, this feature can pay well and does actually give the 5,000x to players on occasion although you'd be lucky if it was you! I'm not sure these gates are where I'll be sending any of my money through in future...
