Athena is one of the most well known of the Greek gods and for good reason. She is Zeus’ favourite child and battles were waged to gain her favour. Now, developer Play’n GO wishes to bring her back into the spotlight and show off exactly why she’s one of the most well known.
In Rise of Athena, your goal is to aid Athena in her ascension through the annals of Greek mythology and all the while earning some pretty spectacular wins.
If you’re a fan of the era or the theme, you should definitely give this one a go, but if you’re still not convinced, let’s take a closer look at everything this video slot has to offer.
Theme & Symbols
The theme around Rise of Athena is pretty much exactly what you would expect for an ancient Greek themed video slot.
Taking place on what can only be assumed is Mount Olympus, the play grid is suspended in the clouds by marvelous white stone pillars complimented by shining gold accents giving it a divine feel and making you feel like you’re up there with the gods.
The background is almost evenly split between clouds and the white and gold architecture of the divine area we find ourselves in.
The symbols follow the Greek theme perfectly, the lower paying icons are the classic playing card values given a mediterranian makeover, those symbols including 10, J, Q, K and A.
It’s in the higher paying symbols where the ancient Greek theme flourishes. They are all represented by Ancient Scrolls, a Legionnaires Helmet, an Old Pot, the Pegasus and of course Athena herself.
The scatter symbol is represented by Athena’s owl and plays a pretty important part during certain bonus games.
There are also four different types of wild symbols present in the game. The Neutral Wild is represented by a gold and silver disc with a golden ‘W’ in the centre. The x1 wild is a bronze disc, x2 is represented by a silver disc and a gold disc represents the x3 wild.
Betting Options & Features
Rise of Athena is a 5-reel, 4-row video slot with a total of 10 fixed paylines and a RTP of 96.20%
Multipliers add up when more than one multiplier wild is present on a payline. The maximum multiplier you can achieve is x27.
Should three or more of Athena’s owls flap their way onto your grid during a spin, you’ll be awarded with 12 bonus spins. Wild symbols have the unique property of being sticky until their multipliers run out, then they lose their stick and fall away. Multipliers on each wild drops by one per each spin.
