Olympus Raging Megaways Review
So why exactly is Olympus raging, you might ask? Well, after an epic 3-way game of rock, paper scissors—we imagine—between Zeus, Hades and Poseidon, it was decided that Zeus would be the supreme ruler of the gods, Poseidon would rule the sea and poor old Hades headed south to look after the dead.
These boys have got beef, and it’s going to be settled the right way; on a slot machine. iSoftBet decided that Poseidon wasn’t worthy of a part in this production and, instead, left Zeus and Hades to battle it out in the final angry encounter between these two embittered siblings.
Keep your wits about you at all times as we dodge fireballs, lightning bolts and who knows what else these two are going to launch at each other.
It's epic, it's bold, it's entirely over the top and we kind of love it! iSoftBet has thrown the kitchen sink at this one and told the design team not to stop until every pixel is covered in some sort of ancient Greek artefact.
Hades’ half the screen bubbles away in a violent red hue while the other side is dark blue where Zeus stands protective of his set of reels. The soundtrack gets your pulse racing and you don’t know where to look at times.
Despite the excessive number of reels and images, it still manages to look great on Android and Apple mobile devices as well.
The whole way through this base game, you feel a bit like you're at school waiting for two of the older kids to have a fight in the playground. Thankfully, lightning bolts and fireballs were banned in our local comprehensive.
There's no end of modifiers and features to keep you amused and even if they don't pop up for a while, the Megaways mechanic and cascading reels are going to keep you occupied for some time. Making it to the bonus round is a nice plus but it doesn't feel like you're missing out by not triggering it.
Despite the fact that this is the final instalment in the Olympus trilogy, it isn't the biggest paying slot of them all. Olympus Zeus Megaways had a massive 50,000x max payout, which is twice as much as you can possibly achieve in this game.
That said, the volatility here is only medium/high so you might have a better chance of hitting bigger wins in this title than you will with the other two.
Even if you don't much care for the theme or storyline, iSoftBet has seen to it that you won't be bored and there's plenty of cash on offer as a bonus. Personally, we think it all comes together brilliantly but we get that it might not be your cup of tea.
Whatever you are thinking right now, you just have to try this one out for yourself before you pass judgement.
