Game of the Week – Achilles Deluxe Slots
Achilles is one of the most popular slot games from Real Time Gaming. Fans of the game can now get more exciting Roman action with the sequel game Achilles Deluxe.
Achilles Deluxe is a reimagined version of the classic Trojan War-themed game with more massive prizes, two free spin bonus games, and two progressive jackpots. Learn more about this game, including the two progressive jackpots available.
Achilles Deluxe Updated Version of Classic Game
Achilles Deluxe is Real Time Gaming’s sequel to its popular Achilles slot game. Based on the Trojan War, the game has a Roman theme featuring Achilles and various Roman characters. The lower paying symbols are royals adorned with laurels.
Every symbol in this game pays, including the Wild and Achilles Deluxe scatter symbol. Lower paying symbols pay three of a kind or greater. Higher paying symbols pay two of a kind or greater. The Wild pays on a single instance or greater. The scatter pays for three of a kind or greater.
Like many RTG games, you have to get four of a kind on lower-paying symbols or three of a kind on higher paying symbols to turn a profit on a single line win. You need multiple line wins to turn a profit on a spin. Fortunately, there are a couple of special features that can help you achieve big wins.
Wild Free Games
If you land three or more Wild symbols on the board, you will unlock the Wild Free Games feature. At the start of the feature, you will pick from three symbols. You will receive 15, 20, or 25 free spins based on your choice. After your selection, your spins will play out, and all wins are tripled. Also, all scatter symbols are substituted for wilds.
I was able to trigger this feature after a while and got 15 free spins. My total wins were about 14x my initial bet. Somewhat disappointing for the amount of time it took to trigger the feature.
Free Games Feature
The other free games feature is triggered when three or more Achilles Deluxe scatter symbols fall on the screen. When triggered, you will get 10 free spins. During the spins, all wins are doubled. This feature is retriggerable.
A while after triggering the Wild Free Games, I was able to trigger this feature. Amazingly, this one netted me 41x my initial bet despite being just 10 free spins.
This game features a Minor and Major Progressive jackpot. These jackpots can be triggered at random after a spin. The minor jackpot is in the $500 range while the Major jackpot is in the $1,000 range. These are not the largest jackpots you’ll find, but they are a nice boost to your bankroll when they hit.
Achilles Deluxe An Average Sequel
As far as sequels go, Achilles Deluxe is an average sequel. It isn’t a horrible game, but it doesn’t offer enough in the way of new features to classify it as a “must play” game. The graphics and animation on the game are somewhat average and does little to excite.
The two progressive jackpots are a bit on the smallish side, making it less than appealing for dedicated jackpot hunters. While the RTP isn’t publicized, I’d classify this game in the medium-high variance arena. I finished with a net loss but was down a ton before triggering the bonus features.
If you liked the original Achilles, you’ll probably find this game adequate. The max payout on the game is 2,000x per line or 40,000x max per spin. For jackpot hunters, other games will probably be more worth your time.
Achilles Deluxe is available at Roaring 21 Casino or any of the best online casinos offering Real Time Gaming products.
