With colossal reels, this Apollo God of The Sun slot certainly looks the part, but will he burn bright all day and night?
However, Novomatic take a stab at the concept in this Apollo God of The Sun mobile slot, and we have to admit that it doesn’t look or play half bad.
The main problem we’ve always found with video slots with colossal reels is that when you play them on mobile phones or iPhones, you tend to lose much of the glory.
If you just want to see if you can win, sure, they are playable. But to truly appreciate the spin of the reels, the falling symbols, and the anticipation of getting several stacked symbols in a row, the bigger the screen, the better.
That’s because what you get here is basically two reels in one: the first is a standard 5×4 set up, whilst the second is 5×12.
However, you can’t deny that this Apollo God of The Sun video slot is one of the most graphically impressive Novomatic studio games.
When you finally manage to get the free spins in Apollo God of The Sun slot, you’ll wonder what makes them so special.
Then you’ll see that whenever any wild lands on the smaller set of reels, these expand to cover the whole reel, and then are transferred to the bigger reels.
This feature isn’t unique to the free spins games, you find them also in the Apollo God of The Sun base game – but then you actually have to land a full reel of wilds.
In short, it’s just easier to get stacks of wilds across both sets of reels, leading to some great wins if you can get the right stack of symbols also sitting next to them.
That’s a little bit of our main problem with this Apollo God of The Sun slot machine.
Namely that you know that if there are no wilds on screen, your chances to catching anything over 5x your bet are nil.
That said you’ve got to admire the fact that super stacked symbols give you the illusion of excitement as you hope to catch these beautiful symbols side by side.
Not perfect, and fans of simple Novomatic machines like the Wild Wood slot game should probably avoid it, but a good version of those ever popular colossal reels.

Stacked Wilds and Transferring Wilds: The very red sun is wild comes stacked across all reels.
However, if you manage to land a whole wild reel on the smaller slot, those wild will then transfer onto the colossal 12 row reels, and then things get interesting.
Wild can be used to replace all symbols except bonus.
Bonus Symbols and Free Spins: Three or more scatter bonus symbols in view across both sets of reels will trigger free spins.
The bonus symbols only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 of each of the Apollo God of The Sun slot reels.
It's also easier to catch transferring wilds as now you only need a partial stack of wilds on the first slot to transfer a whole wild reels onto the second colossal slot.
We actually enjoyed this Apollo God of The Sun slot on iPad and Android tablet far more than on mobile.
That said, the graphics are surprisingly enticing that you could get away with playing it on your mobile phone if you don't mind missing some of the finer details.
That's because with two games in one, it can be a little hard to follow the action on these colossal reels. But don't worry, just keep an eye for those burning wild suns that replicate across the reels to catch big colossal wins.
If you do want to play on mobile, the Temple of Luxor 100 payline slot is also colossal, but easier on the eye on smaller screens.
