Ancient Greece and its war have long been a source of inspiration for online slot games. The Trojan War, in particular, has a stronghold on popular culture and it is that which has inspired Age of the Gods Epic Troy by the team at Playtech.
Playtech is one of the most dependable developers in the industry, and you can always rely on them to deliver beautifully designed games full of great special features and bonus rounds. Age of the Gods: Epic Troy does a brilliant job of recreating the world of Ancient Greece while also offering players the chance to get their hands on plenty of money.
Graphics & Theme
Age of the Gods Epic Troy does a brilliant job of bringing the beautiful ancient city of Troy back to life. The reels are set to a backdrop of the city, with its stunning temples and statues being bathed in the bright Greek sunlight.
The reels themselves are bordered with solid gold, once again highlighting the majestic nature of Ancient Greece and its people.
The symbols of the game are all inspired by Ancient Greece and its leaders. Players will be able to spot Achilles, Paris, Helen, and a Greek warship. The traditional card symbols in this game are replaced by a number of symbols that are in the Doric style, once again adding to the look and feel of the game.
As far as audio goes, the game keeps things very simple. There is a faint soothing sound in the background, but for the most part, you will be able to hear the clinking of the reels as they land in their space. The game does like to mix things up from time to time, and players will hear an array of different sounds whenever they manage to score a victory or trigger a bonus round.
This wouldn’t be a Playtech engineered online slot if it didn’t come with a good selection of bonus rounds and special features.
The game has a stacked symbols feature and depending on which stacked symbol you land, and how many times, you will be rewarded with some respins. The most rewarding of these is Helen of Troy. If you land two stacked Helen of Troy symbols across two rows, then you will be rewarded with three respins. During these respins, the Helen symbols will become sticky, and this can lead to you filling the whole reel with symbols and getting a big payout.
Two of the other symbols can also launch a respin round. With the Paris symbol launching two respins and the Achilles symbols launching just one respin.
The Golden Shield symbol is also one of the most valuable in the game. This will give the player six free spins which can be further retriggered by landing more of the symbol. This can lead to some huge payouts if you are lucky enough to secure a lot of free spins.
Finally, all Age of the Gods games come with a randomly triggered progressive jackpot. This takes you to a mini-game where you have to choose from a selection of different gold coins, behind each of which is a money value.
Tackling Age of Gods: Epic Troy is a fairly easy task. The game’s mechanics are fairly basic, with players simply having to choose their stake using the +/- buttons to get things started. The game lets you play with 20 coins and has a minimum value of 0.20 and a maximum of 500.00 per spin. The game’s RTP is a steady 96.5%, and there are a very generous 243 different pay lines available across the slot’s five reels.
Players can also use the game’s auto-spin feature if they want to put their feet up and let the game do the heavy lifting. They can also check the value of each of the game’s symbols using the game’s paytable, which is available at any time.
