Play’n Go has released a new slot game each week this year, so this week is no different. Their new title is called Rise of Athena, not to be confused with Shield of Athena, another Play’n Go title from earlier this year.
This 5 reels, 3 symbols high, 10 line slot game uses a classic Greek theme with the goddess Athena as the main character.
The game comes with standard slot symbols like 10, J and Q and Greek symbols like an owl (which is the scatter symbol), Athena and helmets.
Rise of Athena also comes with wild symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. These wild symbols have the extra option to be a multiplying wild. These might be x1, x2 or x3 and also multiply each other when more than one are featured in a winning combination.
Free Spins Feature
Getting 3 or more scatter symbols will award 12 free spins.
During free spins wild symbols will stay on the reels until the multiplier runs out. This means that when a x3 wild symbol appear, it will stay for the next spin as a x2 and one more spin as an x1 wild symbol. After this the wild symbol will go away.
You can’t win more free spins during free spins.
Rise of Athena is a pretty standard slot game. The theme is nothing new and even the features don’t feel very innovative. But this doesn’t mean this is a bad game.
The game plays very smoothly and is also easy to comprehend. No weird features, multiple bonuses or over the top ways. Just a simple 10 line slot game with nice multiplying wild symbols.
And this game can pay out pretty nice, especially because of those wild symbols. Three of those x3 will multiply your win by x27, which is nice. Also 5 scatter symbols pay 500 times bet, which is also a good amount.
I think players will like this game, but I also think it might loose popularity in the end because it doesn’t really stand out. But judge for yourself and try out Rise of Athena at Casumo or Boom Casino.
