Red Tiger Gaming presents the Athens Megaways slot. A 6 reel game set in Ancient Greece with changing ways to win up to 117,649, three randomly triggered bonus features, free spins, and a huge 19,992x bet max win.
Athens Megaways is one of many in the Red Tiger slots collection to use the Big Time Gaming Megaways mechanics. In the past, they’ve created the Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, 10,001 Nights Megaways, and Doggy Riches Megaways slots, which are all great slots. They even have a Christmas-themed Jingle Ways Megaways slot, perfect for the festive season.
You won’t be impressed when you set your eyes on this Athens Megaways mobile slot. The graphics look a little dated compared to Red Tiger’s more modern-looking slot games.
This makes it kind of dull and boring to play, and certainly doesn’t grab your attention as much as the NetEnt Divine Fortune Megaways slot which looks better and has a higher 25,000x bet max win.
But we managed to get past the theme and played to continue to trigger all the features and write the Athens Megawys review.
Red Tiger has packed three random bonus features that could appear on any spin during the base game.
These bonus features see the Greek gods of Hades, Poseidon, and Zeus throw down extra wilds, super wilds, and multipliers to help add additional wins to your base game.
Finding these random features can take a while, but one tends to show up within 20 – 40 base game spins.
The Athens Megaways slot follows the same mechanics as most other Megaways games. You get avalanching wins, changing ways to win on each spin, and a free spins bonus where every win will increase the win multiplier by 1x.
Athens Megaways adds an extra flair to its free spin bonus, letting you pick which of the three gods features you want to show up more often during your free spins.
This means that every time you enter the free spins, you can change what feature you want to try out to try and capture that 19,992x bet max win.
Given this is a high variance slot, the free spins can take a good 100+ base game spins to trigger, so you’ll need to budget to get anywhere near hitting them, but at least the 0.10 minimum bet and 40.00 max bet lets you change up your bets when you need to reserve some cash.
Athens Megaways is a slot for fans of Megaways slots that have the patience to wait for the free spins to hit. But not one that’ll make it onto our popular slots list anytime soon.

Red Tiger is used to create slots that hit the mark. However, this Athens Megaways slot on mobile and online doesn't meet our high expectations.
The overall look and feel, even though it showcases many of the features you'd expect to see in Ancient Athens, looks pretty basic and outdated.
Where this slot redeems itself, though, is in the features. The three randomly triggering bonus features add those extra wilds and multipliers from time to time, and the avalanching reels provide a decent amount of base game action.
The free spins are hard to hit, but the option to pick which bonus shows up often gives you some feeling of control and makes you wonder which is best, something you'll only really find out when you've tried them all.
Overall, it's an average slot from a great slots provider. Take it for a spin and see if you agree with our rating. Who knows, you might hit the free spins and that 19,992x bet max win and forget everything we've just said.
