On February 24, 2021, Pragmatic Play released yet another entertaining video slot in its latest release, players will take a trip to Mount Olympus, the mythical home of Zeus. So, get ready to unravel the surprises in store for you in this Greek-themed video slot.

Pragmatic Play Reaches the Heavens with Gates of Olympus

Game Overview

First and foremost, this video slot is based on 6 reels, 5 rows, and zero paylines. Instead, it features a “Pay Anywhere” system, which means players can land matching combinations anywhere, regardless of the symbol positions. Now that’s quite an innovation.

In the first screen, you’ll see a beautiful stage near the castle of Zeus. You’ll see tall, golden pillars around the castle with a flame at the top. On the right side, you’ll see a floating Zeus ready to pounce with bolts and add multipliers.

However, the landscape chances slightly during the Free Spins mode. the golden pillars will now feature blue fire as the warm colors at the base of the game change to light blue. This means that the gameplay just got a little bit serious.

Game Features

You can land at least 4 Scatter symbols and unlock the Free Spins feature. Here, you’ll win up to 15 Free Spins, which can turn impossibilities into possibilities. To add the icing on the cake, Zeus added a total multiplier symbol that appears on the screen’s left side. In this case, the multiplier symbol appearing of the winning spin’s reels is added to the “total multiplier.” Also the total multiplier value applies to all wins in a Free Spins round.

Free Spins matters aside; players will also get the Tumble feature. As the name suggests, this feature refers to how symbols fall on the reels. In this video slot, players can make multiple winning combinations with a single spin unlike other Pragmatic Play online slots like the Mysterious Egypt and The Hand of Midas.

Meantime, the symbols that create the Tumble feature will disappear after a win and quickly replaced with new instances from above. Therefore, players can create brand new winning combinations. Remember that the tumbling continues until there’re no more wins from a tumble.

The Ante Bet Mode

Surprisingly, the Gates of Olympus allows players to select a multiplier to work with. For example, the default Bet Multiplier 20x allows players to buy Free Spins for up to 100x the total debt. On the other hand, the Bet Multiplier 25x increases your chances of triggering Free Spins by dishing out additional scatters.

Sadly, the Buy Free Spins feature isn’t available in this mode. With this feature, players can trigger Free Games instantly for 100x the stake. You’ll see random number of scatters after spinning the reels just once. This, in return, unlocks this much-awaited feature.

RTP and Bet Amount

For starters, the Gates of Olympus has a default RTP rate of 96.5% with a boosted volatility that gives it the 5/5 rating on Pragmatic Play. However, the game potential takes a huge hit downwards from 21,100x to just 5000x. This is an indication that previous criticism against the developer’s over-exaggerated potential has reached home.

You can open the gates of Zeus’ home by staking wagers between €0.20 to €100. However, these aren’t the only options available. Click the (-) and (+) buttons at the screen’s bottom to open the Betting menu. Apart from adjusting the bet, you can also set the coin’s denomination. The coin value starts at €0.01 to €0.50.

Gates of Olympus: Final Verdict

Play this game if you want to enjoy the power of Zeus to the fullest. The game features multiple multipliers, free spins, customizable betting options, and an average RTP. All in all, Pragmatic Play did an excellent job by tweaking the gameplay, giving the Gates of Olympus a brand new and more volatile feel.
