The first lot of the online pokies from the new Playtech series Age of the Gods have gone live at Omni Casino. These include the flagship title Age of the Gods and Furious 4 and King of Olympus. If you are not a wizard in Greek mythology, maybe you should start with King of Olympus. It will remind you of the Marvel branded pokie Iron Man 2 based on its gaming content. The visual appeal is completely different.
Zeus, who is the King of Olympus, is the wild symbol and also awards the top line payout of 3,000 coins for the five-of-a-kind combination. True to form, the symbol is dominant in size and demeanour. The other symbols from Greek mythology are the winged horse Pegasus and Zeus’ eagle Aetos Dios. The win animations in these symbols are a bit of a let-down, considering the high profile nature of this series. These are followed by the Greek warship, harp and urn and finally the usual playing card icons. The payout table indicates medium variance. The temple of Zeus is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels.
Three or more scatter symbols trigger the free games feature. You are awarded 10 free games that start with a 2x payout multiplier. After every two spins the payout multiplier will increase by 1. All wins in a spin will be multiplied by the multiplier value for that spin. The Zeus symbols appears as an extra wild on the centre row of the third reel and remains locked in that position for the entire feature. The free spins cannot be retriggered.
All the Age of the Gods series online pokies are linked to a progressive jackpot network. The jackpot has four tiers, which are Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power. Any spin of any amount can win the randomly triggered entry to the jackpot game. The screen displays a 5×4 grid of 20 coins hiding the symbols of the four jackpot levels. You keep clicking on the symbols and as soon as you have matched three of a particular jackpot tier, you win that jackpot amount. King of Olympus has fixed 25 paylines. The line bet can vary from AU$0.01 to AU$100 and this gives scope to players with bankrolls of all sizes. Omni Casino is licensed and regulated in Curacao.
