Age of the Gods
Age of the Gods is the slot that started it all, the very first instalment in what has undoubtedly been one of the most beloved online slot series of all time! This epic 5-reel, 20 payline slot was introduced to players after Playtech was forced to scrap their popular Marvel series of slots due to Disney clearing up their brand image.
This mythical-themed slot is known for its fantastic set of bonus features including the Age of the Gods Bonus, Athena Free Games, Zeus Free Games, Poseidon Free Games and the Hercules Free Games. If that wasn't quite enough though players are always in with a chance of winning the legendary Age of the Gods Progressive Jackpot.
It's fair to say that the design of Age of the Gods is a little bit dated in this day and age, especially when compared with newer online slots, but we have to give Playtech credit where it's due, the art-style of this game is genuinely timeless.
The game has a distinctive gold trim, with the outline of the game reels and the buttons shining brightly. There looks to be a distant landscape behind the reels (that we can only assume is the ancient heavens) whilst the reels themselves have a star-speckled dark blue hue.
Low-paying symbols are Q, K, A and a roman soldiers helmet, whilst high-paying symbols are, Zeus - The God of sky and thunder, Athena - The Goddess of wisdom, Poseidon - The God of the sea, Hercules - The God of war, Hades- The God of the underworld and Aphrodite - The Goddess of love.
In terms of sound, Age of the Gods isn't exactly game-changing, a mesmerising and relaxing score plays gently in the background. Whenever a win is triggered players are treated to some classic slot machine style sounds you'd expect to hear on the casino floor in Las Vegas.
Age of the Gods is incredibly easy to navigate and play, which we imagine is partly the reason this slot and the subsequent games that followed have become so popular with slot enthusiasts around the world.
On the far left-hand side of the screen is an info button that players can click to get any information about the game's bonus features and paytable.
Players can change their stake using the Bet/Line - and + buttons on the bottom left-hand side of the screen, whilst they can set a number of automated spins using the button on the right-hand side of this screen, which sits next to the spin button.
The win potential in Age of the Gods is pretty huge and we love it! First and foremost, players can win 10,000x their initial stake during base gameplay, this can be achieved by way of the bonus features, namely the various free spins games.
If players are lucky enough to land all 5 god symbols in any order along any active payline during base gameplay then they'll automatically win 200x whatever their bet is.
This medium volatility slot has a slightly below-average RTP of 95.02%, but that can be forgiven considering this game has four legendary progressive jackpots that can see players become millionaires.
There's just one word to describe Age of the Gods, and that's iconic. This slot might not be the biggest and best game in the Age of the Gods series, but it's the one that started it all. It's fair to say that this game deserves a spot on the Mount Rushmore of online slots, thanks to its generous payouts, fantastic bonus features and legendary progressive jackpots.
