Age of the Gods Epic Troy
Set in the ancient city of Troy, Age of the Gods Epic Troy is a 5-reel, 243 ways to win mythical-themed slot developed by Playtech. This game features stacked symbols, free spins, three unique respin bonuses based on familiar faces Helen, Paris and Achilles, and of course the iconic Age of the Gods Progressive Jackpot.
Age of the Gods Epic Troy is genuinely one of the best looking slots in the Age of the Gods series, which hardly comes as a surprise as this is one of the more recent releases. Behind the reels is a gorgeous scene displaying the city of Troy basking in the sunlight in all its glory.
The reels are adorned with bright and vibrant symbols, lower value ones are based on Greek letting Alpha, Beta, Omega, and Zeta and higher value ones feature a longboat, Achilles (the strongest warrior in the Greek army), Paris (who was prophesied to bring the end and destruction of Troy) and Helen (the daughter of Zeus). The scatter symbol is a shield with a horse upon it and the wild symbol is simply the WILD upon a gilded square block.
In terms of sound, there's an atmospheric orchestral score gently playing in the background during base gameplay, which is genuinely quite nice. Things do pick up when the bonus feature is triggered, however, it's all still pretty standard for this kind of game.
Despite looking like your run-of-the-mill Age of the Gods slot, Epic Troy has a sleek action-bar that differs from the classic games slightly. Designed to look like it's built onto cracked stone it has an information button on the far left-hand side which brings up the paytable and bonus feature details, a stake selection that can be altered by clicking - and + buttons (allowing for stakes between 0.20 and 100), an autospin button (that allows players to set up to 100 automated spins) and of course a big blue spin button!
If something seems too good to be true, it usually is. This slot looks fantastic and has some brilliant bonus features... But the win potential is absolutely dire! The RTP is alright at 96.05% but the maximum win (not including the progressive jackpot) is a pathetic 607.5x the player's stake. No thank you.
Age of the Gods Epic Troy is one of the most bonus-filled Age of the Gods slots going, however, it does have an Achilles heel (pun intended), and that's the winning potential. This slot looks good and is genuinely fun to play, however, the winning potential is dire and that sadly drags this slot down in our estimations.
