For a long while Medusa exclusively occupied the female space in Greek mythology themed slot games. Other female goddesses like Athena did make sporadic appearances along with other deities. But now two video slots have been released based on Athena. The first one was Goddess of Wisdom from the Playtech Age of the Gods series. The later release is The Golden Owl of Athena from Betsoft. It is live at online casinos like InterCasino.
In Greek mythology Athena is the goddess of wisdom, handicraft and war, a very unusual combination. The golden owl is her constant companion. The owl is supposed to be the keeper of sacred knowledge and the bringer of insight. It obviously plays a major role in the Betsoft online slot. It is both the wild and the scatter symbol. As the wild symbol it substitutes for other symbols and as the scatter symbol it awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The owl also triggers the free spins feature. The high paying symbols are mostly related to Athena. There is the goddess, her temple and the tree of knowledge. The helmet and spear bring out her aspect as the goddess of war. The Grecian urn brings in the handicraft aspect. The low paying symbols are the playing card royals from jack to ace.
Three scatter symbols trigger 8 free spins, four scatter symbols trigger 12 free spins and five scatter symbols trigger 20 free spins. During the free spins one of the symbols will be randomly selected to award bonus wins. If there are sufficient special symbols, these may expand on the reels to give bigger bonus wins. The free spins can be retriggered with the same special symbol. Betsoft has given players to buy the bonus feature. The price to be paid depends on the bet amount and is indicated on the screen. You will get the maximum 20 free spins for this price. The price paid is a sunk cost and is not added to the bet amount. If you are lucky to get one of the higher paying symbols as the special symbol then you are likely to recover the cost. So there is an element of chance.
The Golden Owl of Athena includes the standard optional Double Up feature. The reels are set in an idyllic Greek coast. The 5x3 structure offers 10 paylines with payouts being awarded from left to right as usual. The top line payout is 2500 coins and the maximum bet per spin is $5.00.
