Introducing the Greek Gods
Playtech’s Age of the Gods is among a variety of slot games that are available to play here at Slots Temple. This five-reel game offers up to 20 paylines for each spin. It features colorful graphics and plenty of bonuses, which are sure to keep you coming back for more.
Harnessing the Power of the Greek Gods
As you might imagine, Age of the Gods from Playtech offers an ancient Greece themed world, brought to life with vivid graphics, which are truly top notch. This entertaining game uses a variety of Greek gods, such as powerful Hercules, the beautiful Aphrodite and top-god Zeus, as well as Poseidon and Hades to take you on a journey towards rewards and winnings. The powers of these mythical characters will decide your fate. Each has a different role in the outcome of the game.
In creating the Age of the Gods series of slots, Playtech have really gone to town on the iconography. This is the original game and introduces us to the pantheon of the Greek gods on Mount Olympus.
Zeus the king of the gods and god of thunder and the sky reigns over all, alongside his daughter Athena - goddess of wisdom and warcraft - and his brothers Poseidon, the god of the seas, and Hades, the god of the underworld. It was these three that defeated the Titans and ushered in the age of the Olympians.
The son of Zeus is Heracles, famous for his adventurous labours and his incredible strength while Aphrodite, another daughter of Zeus, is the radiant goddess of love and beauty. We really like the way the gods and goddesses are portrayed symbolically on the reels - Athena is portrayed in her helmet holding her spear, while lightning strikes around Zeus, and Poseidon holds aloft his trident.
Each character is superbly drawn - we love Heracles resplendent in the pelt of the slain Nemean lion, and Aphrodite’s golden hair adorned with laurel leaves, one of the symbols associated with this goddess. Hades is cast in an eerie purple glow as he strides through the underworld. These are gods in vigorous good health with muscular torsos and beautiful bodies - even the royals are disguised as ancient Greek letters. The celestial blue backdrop of rocks and temples and the shimmering ambient soundtrack all add to the splendour.
Age of the Gods RTP (Payout) & Volatility
This stunning slot offers players a 95.02 RTP and medium volatility. RTP is calculated by games developers who wager 100 credits over thousands and thousands of spins before averaging out the result. Obviously, if you don’t match those conditions then your RTP will vary, particularly if you play hundreds rather than thousands of games, so regard this as a guideline only.
Volatility, also known as variance, is the measure developers use to evaluate the risk to reward ratio of any game - low volatility slots offer smaller wins in the base game that keep your bankroll topped up for a longer session, while high volatility slots can be all or nothing with the opportunity for some massive jackpot wins. Medium variance slots like Age of the Gods offer the best of both worlds and should satisfy casual players and high rollers alike.
How to Play Age of the Gods Slots
Thanks to the clear and intuitive player interface, playing Age of the Gods is a heavenly experience. Everything you need to personalise this slot is at your command - employ turbo mode when you want to enjoy a few quick spins in the shortest amount of time or access the paytable by hitting the Info button. Click on Autoplay and you can select up to 99 autospins - unfortunately there are no built-in reality checks but this slot is so beautiful you’ll be paying close attention.
All 20 paylines are in play for every spin, so the line bet you choose will be multiplied by 20 to determine your total bet per spin. There are options between 0.01 and 2.00 giving you a minimum and maximum bet of 0.20 to 40.00 per game which should suit most styles of player. If it seems a little low for the high rollers, don’t forget the possibility of landing one of the four progressive Power jackpots, although they’re not accessible in demo mode.
How to Win At Age of the Gods Slot
Age of the Gods offers 20 fixed paylines and payouts start when you land a combination of 3 or more matching symbols on one of those lines.
The lowest win available in Age of the Gods is a 12x multiplier when you land three royals on a payline, but there are far greater rewards available to players with the skill and patience to spin on. Athena is the most rewarding symbol, carrying a 1,000x multiplier when five symbols land across the reels.
The laurel wreath wild symbol is even more rewarding - five symbols reward the persistent player with a 10,000x multiplier. There’s also the opportunity to create new winning combinations as the wild substitutes for all other symbols except the game symbol scatter. By contrast the Pantheon of Power - landing Athena, Zeus, Poseidon, Heracles and Aphrodite on a single payline, rewards you with a 200x multiplier.
Age of the Gods Free Spins
While there are rich rewards in the base game, the generous free spins features are where the true action lies in Age of the Gods. Land three or more Age of the Gods game logo scatters anywhere on the reels and you’ll unlock four powerful free spins features that can reward you up to 7,000x your line bet.
You’ll pick golden coins until three matching icons appear - whichever god or goddess they represent will unlock the relevant free spin feature. Each bonus delivers nine free spins but each also has a unique modifier that delivers plenty of potential. None of the free spin features can be retriggered so once you’ve played all nine games you’ll have to wish that the gods smile on you again.
Athena spins: before each spin a random multiplier between 2x and 5x is applied to any potential winnings.
Zeus spins: these feature a climbing multiplier that increases after each three spins. You’ll begin with a 1x multiplier, before playing spins 4-6 with a 2x multiplier and spins 7-9 with a 3x multiplier. In addition, the wild symbol stays locked in the very centre of the reels for the duration of the nine free spins.
Heracles spins: in this feature, Heracles appears as a stacked wild on reel 3 with every other Heracles symbol also transforming into a wild.
Poseidon spins: these are the most lucrative of the free spins feature, with the possibility of winning up to 7,000x your line bet on every free spin. You’ll receive wild symbols galore as Poseidon’s trident shoots lightning onto the reels and adds five extra wilds on each spin.
What are Progressive Jackpot Slots?
In addition to the generous free spins feature, Age of the Gods features four progressive jackpots:
- Power Jackpot: runs into the tens of credits
- Extra Power: delivers a prize in the hundreds
- Super Power: pushes the jackpot into the thousands
- Ultimate Power: the biggest prize of tens of thousands of credits
Since slots from this developer tend to be found in the bigger online casinos, there are more players contributing to the linked prize pool. The more players, the bigger the jackpot and the more quickly it grows until one lucky player lands the lot - in Age of the Gods the jackpots can be awarded at random on any spin and when you play at any stake, though the game rules make it clear that the higher your bet, the more likely you are to trigger the jackpot. You’ll then enter a coin picking game - match three icons to earn the associated jackpot with a guaranteed win.
Though Age of the Gods doesn’t hit the dizzy heights of a slot like Mega Moolah, the Ultimate Power jackpot can get pretty interesting. If you’re a jackpot hunter you’ll find online trackers to let you know just how large the prize pot is before you commit to real money play.
Age of the Gods Tips, Tricks, Cheats and Strategy
Age of the Gods is a truly thrilling slot to play with its bonus features and progressive jackpots. We love the complete unpredictability of triggering the jackpot or landing the scatter symbols that unlock the free spins feature - like all casino games, Age of the Gods is powered by RNGs and the result of any spin is completely random and can only be replicated by pure chance.
But if you can’t affect the outcome of any given spin, there are still some useful cheats and tips that will help you get the most out of playing Age of the Gods.
The metrics are in your favour in this slot, with an average RTP of just over 95% and medium volatility delivering smaller base game wins to keep your bankroll ticking over while you wait for the free spins to land. Ideally, you’ll unlock the Poseidon free spins feature as this delivers the best potential to the player with the opportunity to win 7,000x your line bet on any of the nine spins.
The best players have a rock-solid bankroll management strategy based on setting realistic boundaries and budgets. They never play with money they can’t afford to lose or chase a losing streak until they run the risk of losing everything. Instead, they set a spin limit for each session and walk away when they hit their edge - that way you get to feel like a winner and live to spin with the gods another day!

Age of the Gods Review and Rating
The Age of the Gods slots series has grown exponentially to replace the Marvel Superheroes series of slots from the same provider, but we’re not complaining. For our money, this is the original and still the best with dazzling graphics and some Olympian winning potential.
The attention to detail in the graphics is something else, and particularly repays being displayed on an HD screen for best effect. But it's the action you unleash when the reels start to spin that will have you praying to Zeus that the reels land for some of the big prize-winning configurations - the Pantheon of Power offering a 200x multiplier or the Athena symbol which rewards the player with 1,000x their wager when five land on the reels. In fact, the largest base game win is a very generous 10,000x if you manage to land five wilds across a payline.
But the real offering from the gods in this superb game is the four free spins features, each with their own modifier. The most powerful of these is the Poseidon free spins with five random wilds applied to the reels on every spin, but you won’t be displeased to see any of these bonuses appear on the reels.
So is Age of the Gods worth playing? Whether you’re a fan of progressive jackpots or stunning slots with a Greek mythology theme, the answer is a resounding yes. Not only is this slot easy on the eye but it’s rewarding on the pocket, too, and will suit any style of player - in fact, we can’t recommend this Olympian slot highly enough thanks to its colossal appeal and awe-inspiring potential!
