Colossal symbols take centre stage in Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon, a latest myth and legend themed video slot from Novomatic. Played using a 5 reel, 25 payline game engine, look out for massive 3×3 symbols that can fill the middle 3 reels. There’s also a Free Games feature where 1 symbol will be colossal throughout the round. Stakes range from between 25p and £100 per spin.
Considering this game features the God of the Sea, there’s little evidence of an underwater theme in the design. On the reels you’ll see royal symbols plus a cornucopia, a harp, a gold vase and Spartan soldier’s helmet. Poseidon is the best of the standard symbols, awarding 4 times your total bet of you land 5 on a payline. That might not sound like much. Any of the higher value symbols can land as a colossal 3×3 symbol on the middle 3 reels which can create multiple winning opportunities.
Also helping to create those winning chances is the golden temple wild. This substitutes for all other symbols apart from the gold coin scatter. This scatter spins in a 3×3 block. If the whole of the block is on show, then you’ll trigger the Free Games feature where you can look forward to 10 free spins.
Before the round starts, 1 of the Poseidon, helmet, vase, harp or cornucopia will be randomly selected. This will be the colossal symbol. Only this will appear as a 3×3 block throughout your free spins.
Novomatic likes to keep its games simple and Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon is definitely that. The visuals are nicely done with the classic love it or loathe it backing track playing as you spin. It’s a similar story with the gameplay which revolves around the colossal symbols. The best opportunities arise in the feature. Land a high value symbol as the colossal symbol and some very decent chances are on offer.
In many ways Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon is a typical Novomatic video slot. 1 aspect where it isn’t is the volatility as the variance here in the low to medium range.
If you like Novomatic’s usual blend of simple design and gameplay then Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon should hold plenty of appeal. If you like Greek mythology themed games, Novomatic’s Mighty Trident or NextGen Gaming’s Medusa are good options.
