Recently Microgaming released on online slot game titled Jason and the Golden Fleece at online casinos like Platinum Play, All Slots and Lucky Nugget. This game follows the mythological tale of Jason very closely, identifying characters and places involved in that adventure. It was an awesome experience over and above the gaming for players who were familiar with the story. This article recounts in a little detail the fascinating events so that other players can enjoy the same excitement when wagering on this slot game.

Jason was the son of Aeson the ruler of Iolcus. His uncle Pelias overthrew Aeson and took control of the kingdom. Jason’s mother secretly sent him to the centaur Chiron for his education. Later Jason returned to Iolcus as a young man and claimed the throne from Pelias. Pelias agreed, provided Jason could bring the Golden Fleece.

A golden winged ram had helped young Phrixus escape from his step mother and taken him to Colchis. Phrixus sacrificed the ram, releasing its spirit which became the constellation Aries. In the wild symbol animation in the slot game this constellation is displayed. Phrixus hung the Golden Fleece in a sacred grove in Colchis and because it was a much coveted item he had it guarded by a sleepless dragon that is shown in the Colchis symbol. The Golden Fleece is also the scatter symbol.

Jason assembled a group of heroes and set sail from Iolcus in the ship Argo. Therefore his team was known as the Argonauts. The multi-level bonus game Jason’s Journey also begins with the Iolcus Shield Bonus. Mysia was a place the Argo halted on the way. A little away from Mysia, the Argonauts encountered the seer Phineas who was plagued by the Harpies, the vicious winged females. Jason drove the Harpies away and in return Phineas gave him the directions for reaching Colchis and the secret of passing the Symplegades. In the Mysia Bonus players have to select from the Harpies to win bonus credits. The Symplegades were huge rock cliffs that came together and crushed ships traveling between them. Phineas told Jason to release a dove when they approached the Symplegades. If the dove made it through so would the Argonauts. This is exactly what happened. Jason and the Golden Fleece online slot has a Sympleglades Shipwreck Bonus.

Some of the adventures covered in the slot game actually happened during Jason’s return journey. But for convenience Microgaming shows them in the onward path. In Crete the bronze giant Talbos blocked their way and he had to be killed before they could pass. The slot game has a Crete Wheel Bonus. Sirenum was home to the Sirens. These bewitching women sang beautiful songs that enticed sailors to come to them. As per Chiron’s advice, Jason asked one of the Argonauts, Orpheus, to play his lyre loudly and drown out the Sirens’ songs. This event is represented by the Sirenum Card Bonus.

Aeetes was the king of Colchis when Jason landed there. He set three impossible tasks for Jason to perform. But Aeetes’ daughter Medea, who was a sorceress, fell in love with Jason and helped him out. In the final task Jason had to overcome the sleepless dragon. Medea brewed a potion that put the dragon to sleep. This is the theme of the final event Colchis Potion Bonus in Jason’s Journey. Medea returned with Jason to Iolcus.
