Get pumped. Get playing. The Gates of Olympus are open, time to hunt for the treasures.
With some tweaks Pragmatic Play has made their Sweet Bonanza game even better. Gates of Olympus, the follow up to the developers popular sweet-themed game, lets players experience a divine streak of luck as try to outplay Zeus, guardian of the pay anywhere reels.
The game is set on an Olympian 6-reel, 5-row grid, with Zeus standing off to the side, ready to strike at any moment. Gates of Olympus nine regular pay symbols – gems of various colours, cups, rings, sand timer, and crowns – play off the Greek god theme and add to the excitement of the game.
What are Pay Anywhere reels? Gates of Olympus’ “Pay Anywhere” reel mechanic spans across its 6×5 reels. Unlike traditional slots, there are no pay lines to worry about, and you don’t need to land symbols on adjacent reels to win. Instead, landing symbols anywhere on the screen will trigger spin bet multipliers. Additionally, every symbol that contributes to a winning combination will vanish from the reels, making room for new symbols to drop in and potentially trigger more wins from a single spin.
One of the exciting features of the game is the multiplier symbols. They can appear with random values of 2x or up to 500x, and if they are present, their value is applied to the total win at the end of the cascade sequence. If there is more than one multiplier, their values are added together before being applied.
The game is playable on any device, and Pragmatic Play’s tweaks to the Sweet Bonanza template have made the game into a new and more thrilling experience.
The game’s most valuable standard symbol is the Zeus Golden Crown, which can pay out 100x your wager for matching 12 to 30 symbols. Although there isn’t a wild symbol in the Gates of Olympus slot, don’t let that worry you; the gameplay offers bonus features that will help you win big prizes.
On top of all this, the floating Zeus multiplier can appear at any time during the game, tumbles, or free spins. The game has a high return to player (RTP) rate of 96.5%, which is slightly above average. If Zeus smiles on you, multipliers could boost your win up to 5000x times your wager.
To trigger the free spins feature, you need to land 4, 5, or 6 scatters at once, which will reward you with 15 free spins and a payout of 3, 5, or 100 times your bet. During the free spins, any visible multiplier symbols have their values added to a global multiplier, which does not reset and can only remain the same or rise throughout the round. The round can be extended, and you can be awarded five more free spins when three scatters hit – without limitation.
Another fantastic feature of the game is the Ante Bet. Engaging this increases the stake cost by 25%, and adds extra scatters to the reels, doubling your chance of triggering free spins. In some cases, a bonus buy option may be available for the cost of 100x the bet.
Gates of Olympus is a first-rate gaming experience that will keep you engaged and entertained for hours. The game is playable on any device, and Pragmatic Play’s tweaks to the Sweet Bonanza template have made the game into a new and more thrilling experience.
