Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Sky Slot Review

If you’re a fan of Greek mythology, then Playtech has developed Age of the Gods Ruler of the Sky based on precisely this theme with a particular focus on the divine winged stallion Pegasus. This ivory-white steed sprung from the decapitated head of the Gorgon Medusa offers you the chance to win one of four progressive jackpots!

Pegasus: the child of Poseidon

In view of the mountains, the white clouds drift sideways in the heavens with green grass and deep blue body of water below. The graphics are stroked with a purplish hue to match the opaque reels, home to the thematic symbols. These include the Pantheon, ancient vase, harp, golden helmet as well as six lower-level poker icons to round out the primary symbols. A calming tune accompanies the slot along with standard audio effects from the spinning reels, triggered features and winning paylines. While this may be done purposely, the absence of any gods or anything divine besides Pegasus, child of Poseidon, is a little disappointing.

Pegasus wild

By far, the most significant feature of this slot is the Pegasus wild symbol that can substitute for any other except for the scatter, named after the title. This symbol can appear as stacked on any of the five reels allowing for the possibility of creating paylines wholly made out of this symbol. If this happens in sets of 3, 4 or 5 you will unlock 50, 200 or 1,000 coins respectively.

Age of the Gods Pegasus Free Games

For the chance of unlocking Godly sums, land 3 scatters on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels to unlock the Pegasus 5 Free Spins feature. While in free games mode, the Pegasus wilds appear more frequently. The scatters can appear again in sets of 3 to unlock 5 more free games, indefinitely.

4 Progressive Jackpots

The slot offers no less than a chance at four progressive jackpots: Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power. Each of these can be won, but first, the Jackpot Game feature needs to be randomly triggered. The probability of entering it increases with the size of the bet.  Once triggered, you are guaranteed to win one of the four-tiered jackpots.  You will need to select from amongst 20 coins presented to you, concealing corresponding jackpot symbols. You continue to choose coins until you uncover three of the same at which point you win the corresponding jackpot.

Divine intervention

Age of the Gods Ruler of the Sky slot has a high variance owing to the four progressive jackpots which means that you will very likely need to play with a higher bankroll if you want to play long enough to maximise the possibility of collecting a more substantial prize. At 91.04%, the theoretical return to player is definitely amongst the lowest that we’ve seen. The slot is played with between 1 and 40 paylines, and for the best chance, we suggest you use them all.
