Gods of Olympus Megaways – Blueprint Gaming – slot review and play for free
The Gods of Olympus Megaways online slot from Blueprint Gaming is graphics and bonus round intense. The Megaways feature allows the player to get up to 15 625 ways to win, which is far off from the 117 649 ways to win we are used to from other Megaways slots.
Symbols and Paylines
There are ten different paying symbols in Gods of Olympus Megaways. Zeus, the almighty, is obviously the highest paying symbol, worth five times more than the second highest paying. Zeus is followed by three other gods to seal up the High paying symbols. Who do you think we have as Low Paying symbols? That’s right. The low paying symbols are our beloved royals in ancient style, similar to the way they look in Medusa Megaways.
Outside of the regular paying symbols, there are two special symbols as well. The Wild, which of course substitute for all other symbols except the Scatters. Then we have the scatters, which comes in Blue or Red, depending on if you are in a free spins feature or if you are just spinning away in the base game.
In Gods of Olympus Megaways, each spin can result in up to 15 625 ways to win. There are six reels, with no horizontal reel on top or bottom as often is the case with Megaways slots. Each spin, a random number of symbols will show on each reel, between two and five. If you hit five symbols on each reel, you will reach the maximum of 15625 ways to win. However, getting there is only half the work, you have to have some symbols to line up with as well. Otherwise it will have been all in vain.
In the base game of Gods of Olympus, there is always the possibility to get a random feature and one of the Power Spin features. This helps keep you on the edge of your seat.
If a long time passes without a win, there is always the option to buy right into the free spins feature, or maybe the Zeus Power Spin if you are a cheapskate.
The Features in Gods of Olympus Megaways
If you hit three or more scatters, you’re in the free spins feature! Three scatters gets you 10 free spins, whilst six scatters gets you a massive 20 free spins. You get to select an artifact, similar to Genie Jackpots Megaways, which reveals one of four free spins bonuses: Colossus Free Spins, Wild Storm Free Spins, Rise of Olympus Free spins and Almighty Wild Free Spins.
Rise of Olympus Free Spins
In the Rise of Olympus free spins feature in Gods of Olympus Megaways, each time you hit a wild in view, the unlimited win multiplier will increase. Every five wilds you collect will award an additional free spins. This feature goes wild with a lot of wilds.
Wild Storm Free Spins
The Wild Storm free spins feature has special symbols on reels one and six, which turn the same symbols wild in the wild zone. The wild zone are reels two, three, four and five. In other words, if you get a lightning bolt on reel one, then all lightning bolts in the wild zone will turn into a Wild.
During the feature you can also collect scatter symbols to activate the maximum number Megaways in the Wild Zone. If you hit the bonus update, you get awarded two extra spins.
Colossus Free Spins
The Colossus free spins begin with a X2 roaming wild on Reels two to five. The name of the game is to collect scatter symbols and upgrade the roaming wild. Each upgrade will award an additional two spins to the free spins and the roaming wild can increase to an amazing 625X multiplier. Six hundred and twenty fix times the win. This makes 300 shields seem like a small multiplier.
Almighty Wild Free Spins
The almighty wild free spins beging with X2 and X3 wild multipliers active. These can multiply your wins up to 81 times. As you collect Scatter symbols, the wild multipliers increases as well as two more spins being added every upgrade.
The collect and upgrade function featured in some of the free spins features in Gods of Olympus Megaways is similar to Return of Kong Megaways, another online slot from Blueprint Gaming.
Buying the Bonus Round
In Gods of Olympus Megaways, there is the option to buy the Zeus Power Spin where you have a chance to get into the Bonus rounds if you hit the Bonus Thunder. Should you not want to risk it, because you are chicken, you can choose to pay twice as much and get into the bonus feature right away. The Power spin costs 50 times you bet, whilst if you want to go for the bonus right away, you need to pay 100 times your stake.
Zeus God of Thunder Power Spin
During the God of Thunder Power Spin in Gods of Olympus Megaways, the player gets to spin for one of the five random features:
- Wild Thunder – Up to ten wild multipliers are added to the reels, thereby increasing your chances for a big win.
- Colossal Thunder – Up to six reels will be convered into a colossal reel for massive… or dare we say it… colossal wins.
- Mystery Thunder – In this feature, mystery symbols are added to all six reels. More mystery symbols leads to more wins.
- Bonus Thunder – bonus symbols are added to the reels on maximum megaways. This is your chance of getting straight into the free spins features!
- Respin Thunder – Winning symbols are held in position as the reels re-spin, adding more and more symbols to the win until there is a spin without more symbols.
Conclusion of Gods of Olympus Megaways
Gods of Olympus Megaways is for the slots players out there who love feature rich slots. There is a lot of content in this slot and if you play until you have seen and experienced them all, you will get a lot of playtime. However, some free spins modes are more interesting than others, and it can be a real let down when you finally make it into the free spins feature and you get a bad one.
In the end, the graphics and sounds are great, something we are getting used to with Blueprint Gaming. We rate this slot a good 3.8 out of 5.0, because of megaways, tons of features and great graphics.
