Age of the Gods: God of Storms Live
Age of the Gods: God of Storms Live is a completely new take on Age of the Gods God of Storms, one of the most iconic slots in the Age of the Gods series. It's clear that Playtech has taken huge inspiration from Twitch streamers when creating this unique live version of God of Storms, and you know what, it really works!
If you want to put a social spin on your online slot play then this 5-reel, 25 payline slot could the game for you.
As mentioned, Age of the Gods: God of Storms Live is designed to look like a Twitch stream, so once you load into the game the first thing you're going to notice is that there's someone sat in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen in a Playtech branded hoodie.
This person acts as the streamer, they'll interact with players who talk to them using the chatbox on the right-hand side of the reels, they'll also talk about what's going on in the game at any time and play along as if they've got something riding on it as well.
The reels themselves are a shrunk-down version of the reels you see in the standard Age of the Gods God of Storms slot. Low-paying symbols are your standard 10, J, Q, K, A and high-paying symbols are a vase, a hydra, an archer, a woman brandishing a knife and a spartan warrior. The wild symbol comes in form of a ship that covers the entire reel.
God of Storms Live is set-up to be a social experience first and foremost. By mirroring the layout of a Twitch stream Playtech have really improved upon their previous attempts at releasing a live online slot game as it's clear to see that players enjoy interacting with the hosts whilst they play the game.
This game is not played like your standard online slot. Every few seconds the game reels spin automatically, it's down to players to buy in, setting some mandatory conditions ahead of playing. These are how many spins of the reels you want to make and the bet amount you want to place for those spins.
Once these conditions are set then the player will automatically join the game on the next spin of the reels, a counter will count down as you use up your spins, once they've all been played you'll have to re-adjust your conditions and go again.
Essentially, everyone wins together and loses together, as everyone playing is sharing the same set of reels.
In terms of navigating the slot itself, all players need to do is press the large green button in the bottom-centre of the game screen. This opens up several menus that allows players to set between 10 and 99 spins, their bet per spin (between 0.25 and 1.25), a loss limit and a single win limit.
Wins in Age of the Gods: God of Storms Live are calculated according to each symbols' values. For payout purposes, the line bet term is used - It is always your bet per spin divided by 25. When a win occurs, the Line bet is multiplied with the symbol's value to calculate the actual payout.
So, if players bet 5 per spin the line bet would be 5 divided by 25 = 0.2. If 4 spartan warrior symbols appeared on a pay line the Line Bet is multiplied by 200 and the actual payout is 0.2 x 200 = 40.
It's worth noting that players can win any of the four Age of the Gods Progressive Jackpots at any time on any spin!
Age of the Gods God of Storms Live is a great deal of fun, especially if you like playing live dealer casino games! This Playtech slot spells the end of lonely slot sessions for good! If you can deal with having a little less control over your spins then this game is worth playing.
