Battle for Olympus Slot from Amaya
Greek Mythology is a very popular subject matter when it comes to online slots and Battle for Olympus is a fine to the growing list. Featuring such iconic characters from the classic era such as Zeus and Hades, this slot with a resounding soundtrack really takes you to the days when Mount Olympus was the true center of the Universe. The highlight of this slot is the bonus feature where you’ll choose whether to be Zeus or Hades as they face off against each other in a mighty battle.
How to Win on Battle for Olympus
Zeus and Hades are the two highest paying symbols on the reels, both worth 2,000 coins for hitting the maximum 5 in a row. They also work together as a team, so if you land a mixed combination five times in a row, you’ll see 1,000 coins coming your way. Helios’ coach, Hermes’ helmet and Poseidon’s trident are next on the pay table, worth 500, 400 and 250 coins respectively for a full house of 5, while the playing card characters 10, J, Q, K and A make up the standard symbols.
This game features a particularly impressive looking wild symbol in Cerberus, the multi-headed dog. This will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter and there is a large added bonus here in the fact that any wins using the wild will be the subject of a 3x multiplier, which will certainly boost that all-important bankroll.
Battle for Olympus Slot Bonus Feature
The battle bonus is certainly the highpoint of the slot. This is activated by landing the symbols that feature the words ‘Battle’, ‘For’ and ‘Olympus’ on reels 1, 3 and 5. You’ll now choose to fight the battle as either Hades or Zeus. You’ll now enter a skill based arcade game. The two protagonists stand to either side of the screen and each will attack the other 5 times. For your attack, you’ll see a meter at the bottom of the screen, with a tack moving rapidly from left to right and back again. Your aim is to click the mouse and stop it perfectly in line with the warrior’s icon. If you manage to line it up perfectly on the first 4 attacks, you’ll be awarded a perfect play credit award and skip the 5th attack, although if not you’ll have 5 attacks in total, with a random credit awarded for each.
Design and Setup
The game is certainly an eye catching one. The backdrop to the reels shows multi-colored clouds swirling across the sky, with the golden gates of Mount Olympus in the top right hand corner of the screen. The theme relevant symbols on the reels all stand out, each with a bold colorful background, while the playing card symbols are in reds, blues, golds, greens and purples. One of the highlights of the game is the accompanying sound. This is movie like and adds a great deal of atmosphere and tension to the game, this only improving when you manage to enter the bonus feature.
This five reel slot is slightly larger than your standard game, as each of the reels shows 4 symbols as opposed to the more usual 3. Due to the oversized reels, you’ll find a total of 50 pay lines at the game, although you can choose to play any number between 1 and 50. The coin size ranges from just 1c, all the way through to $10.
The slot has a handy auto play option where you can either set the number of spins manually using the up and down arrows, or hit the ‘advanced’ button where you can set certain rules, such as having the auto play stop when you’ve won or lost so many credits.
This Amaya designed slot is one that will certainly keep you entertained. The base game offers some particularly nice payouts, with the added bonus of a 3x multiplier with the wild and the fact that a mix of the top two symbols will also gain you a win. However, this game really roars into life during the bonus feature. It’s a skill game, so the more you play it, the better you’ll get, and it will certainly appeal to that ‘Streetfighter’ inside of you.
