Age of the Gods is a new series of online pokies from Playtech based on themes from Greek mythologies. These pokies will eventually replace the Marvel super hero branded pokies that will be discontinued due to the lapsing of the licensing agreement. Seven titles were announced by Playtech of which six have been released. These are Age of the Gods, Furious 4, King of Olympus, Goddess of Wisdom, Fate Sisters and Prince of Olympus. The Age of the Gods online pokies use the same template from one of the Marvel pokies and this helps in creating a link between the two. More than that, all the Age of the Gods pokies are networked to the Marvel Mystery progressive jackpot.
The flagship online pokie of the series is Age of the Gods. It has the same template as The Avengers. Athena, Zeus, Poseidon, Hercules and Artemis are the high paying symbols. Pantheon of Power is a bonus game played on the reels. When the five different deities appear on an active payline in any order you are awarded 200 times the line bet. Age of the Gods bonus feature first takes you to a second screen where you match coins that determine the deity that will award the free spins. Each god or goddess awards 9 free games with a unique feature. Athena awards a random multiplier. Zeus locks a wild symbol. Poseidon adds up to five wild symbols in every spin. Hercules remains fixed as a stacked wild on reel 3.
King of Olympus uses the template from Iron Man 2. Zeus is the wild symbol and awards the top line payouts. Other symbols taken from Greek mythology are Pegasus, Aetos Dios, warship, harp, urn and temple. The bonus feature awards 10 free games that start with a 2x payout multiplier, which increases steadily. Zeus appears as an extra fixed wild on the centre row of the third reel during the free spins.
Furious 4 is understandably based on the Marvel branded pokie Fantastic 4. The Greek heroes that take the place of the superheroes are Prometheus, Apollo, Pandora and Atlas. Each has his or her unique free games feature to offer. The Age of Fire is offered by Prometheus, because he stole fire from the gods. Age of Light is offered by Apollo the Sun God. Age of Curiosity is offered by Pandora who opened the box and allowed the troubles to enter the world. Age of Endurance is offered by Atlas who holds the heavens on his shoulders.
