Athena In Popular Playtech Online Slot

The online slots from Playtech’s Age of the Gods series have been around for some time now and players have settled on their favourites. Goddess of Wisdom is fairly popular at online casinos like Casino Tropez and Omni Casino for two reasons. It uses the slots engine from Marvel’s Elektra, which used to draw high traffic before it was discontinued. Athena is a well-known Greek goddess, so it is easy to relate to the symbols on the reels.

Though the title of the online slot game describes Athena as the goddess of wisdom, she is also the goddess of war. Ironically the war aspect has been given greater emphasis. The goddess in full battle regalia is the wild symbol. Athena is always accompanied by a white owl and in this slot game the wise bird is the scatter symbol. The highest line payouts are awarded by Athena’s shield. If you look at it closely, you will find the head of Medusa the Gorgon on it. Medusa was a sort of arch enemy of Athena in Greek mythology. Another symbol is Athena’s breastplate named Aegis. She was born with it and it made her invincible. There are two intriguing symbols that do not have an obvious connection with Athena. One is a pair of sandals. These belong to Nike, the goddess of victory. Athena bestowed victory in war to those who worshipped her. Then there is an olive, a must in Greek cuisine. The Greek city of Athens is named after this goddess and Athena had gifted this fruit to the Athenians.

There is only one bonus feature in Goddess of Wisdom online slot. It is titled Battle Game and is a free spins feature. You are given three options and you have to choose one of them. The options are based on items of Athena’s armour. The shield awards 10 free spins. The helmet awards 7 free spins with a 4x multiplier. The breastplate awards 14 free spins with a 2x multiplier. The important footnote to the offers is that the chosen symbol will replace the other two during the free spins. This gives meaning to the shield option, which otherwise seems redundant. The shield pays out much more than the other two symbols and therefore the payouts in these free spins will be larger on an average. The Goddess of Wisdom online slot game is linked to the multi-tier progressive jackpot network common to all Age of the Gods titles.
