Blueprint Gaming’s Gods of Olympus MegaWays Slot Review

Join Poseidon, Ares, Athena and Zeus in Gods of Olympus MegaWays, a Greek myth and legend themed video slot from Blueprint Gaming. This 6 reel slot offers up to 15,625 ways to create a winning combination. It comes with 5 base game modifiers and 4 triggered free spin rounds. Play this medium to high variance game on all devices from between 10p and £10 per spin.

As usual for a video slot from Blueprint Gaming, the design in Gods of Olympus MegaWays is terrific. Joining the lower value playing card values are a quartet of ancient deities. You’ll see Zeus (God of Olympus), Aries (God of War), Athena (Goddess of Wisdom) and Poseidon (God of the Sea). Land 6 of Zeus in combination for a payout of 25 times your bet. The ancient Greek temple building is the wild. This replaces all the standard symbols.

The number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin thanks to the MegaWays game engine. So too does the number of ways to create a winner. This ranges from 64 right up to 15,625 MegaWays.

Like many Blueprint-powered games there are plenty of extras on offer in Gods of Olympus MegaWays. There are 5 Power Spin extras which can trigger at random on any spin. Alternatively, you can pay 50 times your total bet to activate them:

  • Wild Thunder feature – up to 10 wild multipliers are dropped on to the reels.
  • Colossal Thunder feature – colossal reels are in play here. Between 2 and 6 reels will merge to create a giant symbol block.
  • Mystery Thunder feature – mystery symbols will appear then transform into the same matching symbol.
  • Bonus Thunder feature – extra scatter symbols are added to boost your chances of landing the free spins round.
  • Respin Thunder feature – this is a streak respin round. The winning symbols from the triggering spin are held and the reels keep spinning as long as a new matching symbol joins the cluster.

Gods of Olympus MegaWays also comes with a quartet of triggered free spin rounds. Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters on the same spin and you’ll receive 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins. There are 4 different features to choose from here. You can also buy the feature, with the Bonus Guarantee Bet feature, for a price of 100 times your total bet:

  • Wild Storm Free Spins feature – any thunderbolt symbols that land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 turn into wilds. Landing 3 scatters increases the number of MegaWays in play as well as adding extra free spins to your total.
  • Rise of Olympus Free Spins feature – each time a wild lands on the middle 4 reels, a multiplier increases by 1x. After you land 5 wilds, 2 extra free spins are added to your total.
  • Almighty Wild Free Spins feature – 2x and 3x wild multipliers are in play in this round. These can combine to boost payouts by up to 81x. Collect 3 scatters and the value of the wild multipliers increases (up to 5x) to offer combined multipliers of up to 625x!
  • Colossal Free Spins feature – a 2-high roaming wild joins the action here. When the wild stops those positions become wild. Landing scatters adds more free spins, wilds and multipliers into play.

Gods of Olympus MegaWays is an impressive take on the classic myth and legend themed video slot. The design is superb and there’s plenty of variety of offer from the features. The medium to high variance delivers a decent payout punch – with possible wins of 10,000 times your bet on every free spin. The possibility of the 625x multiplier will help you achieve this.

If you like the MegaWays game mechanic or the ancient theme, then Gods of Olympus MegaWays is definitely a game to seek out. If you’re looking for Greek Gods, Playtech’s Age of the Gods: Mighty Midas would be my choice – if it’s MegaWays you’re after, Kingmaker by Big Time Gaming is the best option.
