Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Dead Review
This Age of the Gods slot follows Hades in the Underworld. In this slot, you'll see Cerberus, his wife Persephone and Charons who carry the souls of the newly deceased.
Developed by Playtech, Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Dead plays on 5-reels with 25 paylines and features a respin mini-game and multipliers as well as the Age of the Gods Jackpot.
You'll find yourself at the entrance of the Underworld with various Greek myth characters such as Hades, Persephone and Charon. The overall colour scheme is an orange tint making it seems as if the entire area is surrounded by lava.
There is a subtle bit of animation that feels impressive for an Age of the Gods slot and the overall character designs are quite charming.
As for music, you'll find ominous sounds such as a dull roar paired with other scary noises. It definitely seems that they have nailed the atmosphere of the Underworld. The only criticism is a lack of noise from the symbols and that the sounds only continue when you are spinning.
The overall gameplay is pretty standard for an Age of the Gods slot but the respin mechanic is actually quite revolutionary and impressive. Each time you land a win, you continue but ultimately the feature ends when there are no more wins left.
Alongside this, you have multiplier wilds and the jackpot. All the relevant menus can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button at the bottom right.
The volatility is medium to high which is befitting for an Age of the Gods slot as you expect bigger wins at a less frequent rate. That being said, the maximum win for the base game of this slot is a low 875x your stake.
Despite this, the RTP is a respectable 96.53% and you can win one of the fixed jackpots that can be seeded at £100,000.
This is quite a refreshing Age of the Gods slot that definitely tries to shake up the formula with a respin mechanic and multipliers as well. There seems to be a decent bit of lore in this slot as well which fans of the series will enjoy.
However, the low base game payout of 875x your stake is a little low for our liking - but that's why you have the chance to win on the progressive jackpots. If you love Age of the Gods or Greek myths, then check out Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Dead.
