Playtech Age of the Gods: Epic Troy Video Slot Review

Age of the Gods: Epic Troy: Demo

One of the most famous tales of Greek legend gets a reworking in the Age of the Gods: Epic Troy online slot. Created by Playtech, it’s a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game that comes with classy design and some cracking extras. There are 3 respins rounds complete with modifiers as well as a free spins feature with the lower value symbols removed from play. You’ll also have a chance to land 4 progressive jackpot prizes. Stakes here range from between 20p and £500 per spin for the heavyweight players.

Ancient Greek mythology theme

Playtech has put plenty of effort into their Age of the Gods series and Age of the Gods: Epic Troy is another good-looking release. With a hillside full of Greek temple style buildings in the background, you’ll see lower value letter symbols alongside a ship, Achilles, Paris and Helen. Land 5 of the latter for an award equal to 2.5 times your total bet. Also helping your winning chances is a wild that can land on the middle 3 reels only.

Respins galore

Each of the 3 character symbols come with their own respins feature. Land 2 or more stacks of the same character to trigger their associated bonus extra.

Achilles Respin Bonus feature

Once activated, the stacks of Achilles are held and 1 respin is awarded. Any Achilles symbol that lands, plus the original stacks, turn wild. A payout consideration is made with the wilds in place.

Helen Respin Bonus feature

This is a streak respin round. The Helen symbols are locked in place and 3 respins are awarded with the reels made up of blanks and Helen only. Land a Helen symbol and it too is held and the respins reset to 3. The round ends when you fill the whole grid with Helen symbols or you’ve used up your respins. Then, a final payout calculation is made.

Paris Respin Bonus feature

The stacks of Paris are held and 2 respins follow. If a Paris symbol lands, it expands and joins the original stacks. If you don’t add to the 2 Paris stacks, the round is over. If you do, you’ll be awarded Mega Reel Spin. This offer instant cash prizes. The more Paris reels, the bigger the possible rewards.

  • A 3 Mega Reel Block pays 5, 10, 15, 20 or 50 x bet
  • A 4 Mega Reel Block pays 10, 20, 30, 40 or 100 x bet
  • A 5 Mega Reel Block Pays 20, 40, 60, 100 or 150 x bet

Free spins with high value symbols

Land 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter symbol on the same spin and you’ll receive an award of 1, 10 or 50 times your bet. You’ll also activate the Free Games feature. You can then look forward to 6 free spins on reels where all the lower value letter symbols have been removed.

It’s possible to trigger all 3 of the respin rounds from within the free spins. Landing 3 or more scatters delivers a re-trigger and another round of free spins (giving you 12 free spins in total).

4 x progressive jackpots

The Age of the Gods: Epic Troy slot is part of the Age of the Gods Jackpot network so you’ll also have a shot at landing a potentially life-changing progressive prize. You pick from coins to match 3 which will give you that jackpot – the Ultimate Power Jackpot is by far the biggest and has reached as high as €913,000!

Good Age of the Gods slot

We really liked this addition to the Age of the Gods series. The design was just what we expected. The range of extras is where this game excels though. The respins offer plenty of potential, as does the free spins round – the most you can win is 607.5 x bet on each spin by filling the reels with Helen symbols.

Throw the progressive jackpots into the mix and Age of the Gods: Epic Troy has become one of our favourite slots in the hugely popular Age of the Gods series. Another good one to try is the Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Seas slot which offers lots of respins features, 5 free spins features and 7,500 x bet wins.
