All About Battle For Olympus Online Slots from Cryptologic
There are many Greek Mythology themed online slot games out there, and this is another one. From developers Cryptologic comes Battle for Olympus, a five reeled fifty payline online slot.
This slot has a few nice features, such as a bonus round and a decent jackpot, but is not as heavily featured up as some other mythological online slots. It is missing a few key extras that players look for, like a progressive jackpot and a gamble feature. That being said, Battle for Olympus does have an Auto Spin feature and a Max Bet feature, as well as a wild and a scatter symbol which triggers a bonus game.
Greek Mythology Feel and Theme
This is clearly a slot based on Greek Mythology and their pantheon of gods. The reels are set in pink swirly clouds, which are presumably at the top of Mount Olympus which is where the Gods were said to have lived. The overall feel of this slot is kind of pink and fluffy.
The clouds are pink and fluffy, the symbols don’t have any hard edges, and it’s a very relaxing slot game, except for the onus round where two gods bash each other. All your player information is laid out at the bottom of the screen in a clear and concise way. This is quite a simple slot, and is a great step for beginners wanting to try a real money slot. Please note that this slot is not available to be played for free money.
Greek Mythology Symbols and Specials
Of course all the symbols in Battle for Olympus are taken right from Greek mythology too, and you can find a large number of Gods and Goddesses happily populating your reels as well as various godly regalia. The top god is of course Zeus, who was the king of the Greek Gods. His brother Hades is also there, as well as Athena, Cerberus the three headed dog, a cart, a trident and a helmet. The base symbols are taken from the deck of cards, and have not had much done to them except to add rounded edges, which adds to the pink fluffy feel.
In Battle for Olympus you can find winning combinations with different symbols creating a line, which is rather unique. Zeus and Hades together create the highest winning combination. There are also several special symbols. Cerberus the three headed dog who guarded the river Styx in the underworld is our wild symbol. He does not create any payouts on his own, but does substitute for any other symbol on the reels except the bonus, the scatter and the mixed gods. Athena is our scatter. When she appears three, four or five times anywhere on the reels she creates a multiplier which is based on how many of her you find.
Battle for Olympus Bonus Round
The bonus round in Battle for Olympus is started when a player finds three bonus symbols on reels one, three and five respectively. These together form the name of the game. In this bonus round the player will find a battle between Zeus and Hades, who are brothers but bitter enemies. You choose your side, and the two gods go at it. Your chosen god is controlled by you and attacks when you push a button. Prizes are awarded for each successful hit, and of course victory will bring you an even bigger prize.
