Welcome mortals to Play’n GO’s Rise of Olympus mobile slot which put your face to face with the three most powerful gods in Greek mythology.
Once there were three brothers; one ruled the sky, the other the ocean and the third the underworld. Which one will you bow down to?
Well if you start spinning this 5×5 grid slot by Play’n GO you might find yourself bowing down to all three as they each have their own way to answer your casino prayers.
Back in 2017 Play’n GO brought out a game called Moon Princess that was meant to appeal to those of us who love anime. It was a little niche, but a great game.
Fast forward to 2018 and this Rise of Olympus slot machine has the same mechanics but a theme that is meant to appeal to a wider audience.
And overall it works. You get Zeus, Hades and Poseidon sitting by the side of the reels, taking turns watching over you. On a non-winning spin, they may remove symbols, add wilds, or turn symbols into higher paying ones.
Add some tumbling reels where a win will explode, increase the multiplier, and create a wild symbol, and for a high variance slot, there’s lots of action in the base game.
We’ve got all the details in the feature section below but to get the really big wins you’ve got to clear the whole board of symbols.
Why? Because they you get free spins where you pick one of the gods to look after you throughout your bonus.
This god will not just generate wins using his special power, but the multiplier that usually decreases after a win doesn’t during the free spins – meaning you can get up to 20x multiplier if you get lucky.
The highest we’ve gotten is 14x multiplier, and gotten over 120 times our bet, but so much more is possible here: in fact, you can win up to 5,000 times your bet.
That said, watch your budget on this one. Much like in the Viking Runecraft slot, these gods can be a little unforgiving and your balance can decrease much quicker than you might think as you watch those reels light up with all those bonuses.

Cascading Reels, Wilds, and Multipliers: Whenever you get 3 or more symbols touching either vertically or horizontally, you get a win.
Those symbols will then disappear, but instead of getting more from above to replace them, you get a wild symbol in their place.
The wild is a golden greek coin and can be used to create more wins in this all ways pays slot machine.
The more wins you get, the bigger the multiplier on the right-hand side of the reels. The biggest multiplier we've seen in the base game is around 10x, but you get much higher in the free spins.
Hand of God Feature: On the side of the reels you'll notice that there's always one of the three Greek Gods watching over you.
After any non-winning spin, whichever one of the three gods that is sitting by the reels may trigger a bonus:
Once the bonus has been triggered, the next god in the queue will take a turn on the side of the reel.
Wrath of Olympus: There is a little meter on the left of the screen that, once full, will trigger one free spin.
How do you fill the meter in this Rise of Olympus slot? By getting wins on the high paying god symbols.
A five-of-a-kind combination fills up the meter with 3 sections, a four-of-a-kind combination fills up the meter with 2 sections, and a three-of-a-kind combination fills up the meter with 1 section.
You can get fill it up by getting more than one win thanks to the cascading reels.
Once a section is filled, you get 1 re-spin with each of the gods doing their special power.
Clear the grid free spins: When you clear the whole 5x5 reel grid, you'll get to choose between 3 different free spins bonus features:
The maximum amount of free spins you can trigger is 20.
However, you have an advantage here in that after every non-winning spin, the god sitting by the side of the reels will trigger his hand of god bonus.
Add that the multiplier doesn't reset on a new spin - so it will keep increasing with every win, and you can see up to a maximum of 20x multiplier on wins.
If you clear the whole board during the free spins, you'll also win 100x your bet.
There's so much happening in this Rise of Olympus slot on mobile, it's almost easier to just tell you to try it out rather than read the review.
The reason why is that once you start playing, you'll quickly see how all the different dynamics, bonuses, and gods work together to create a fast paced high action machine.
However don't be fooled by all the little wins, this is a high variance high win slot machine that is thirsty for money.
But get one of these gods on your side, and you may suddenly find yourself with 5,000 times your bet and a brand new religion.
If this sounds a little too risky for your taste, we'd recommend you start with something like the Energoonz slot which also has the avalanching reels and the multipliers functions.
