Embark on an odyssey
One of the most famous works of poetry ever written, Homer’s Odyssey is an ancient Greek literary work of art. Merkur's Odyssee draws its inspiration from the poem that tells the story of the hero Odysseus as he tries to return to his throne on the island of Ithaca at the end of the Trojan war. Along the way he must navigate all the perils of the Aegean Sea, including getting captured by a Cyclops, seduced by a nymph, and shipwrecked and stranded! When he finally makes it home, he discovers his wife, who assumed he was dead, has begun to look for a new husband! This is quite a tale indeed, and one well deserving of a slots game themed on it.
Meet the cast and crew
On the five reels of Odyssee you will come face to face with the key characters from this famous story. There is the Cyclops Polyphemus, Calypso the nymph, the hero himself, and his beguiling wife Penelope. There are also other symbols that relate to the theme, with ships, Greek islands and maps of the sea waiting to line up big wins for you.
The Greek theme is resplendent throughout, with the Greek-style lettering and old stone-style reels complete with geometric lettering setting the scene. The illustrations are somewhat 2D and the grey colour scheme a little bland; however, the brightly-coloured, well-rendered symbols contrast beautifully with the plain background.
Bountiful bonus features
Odyssee has five fixed paylines, so they are always in play whenever you spin. This means that wins come about regularly, with the bonus features only adding to your chances. There is a wild symbol, which can stand in for all other standard symbols to complete a winning combination, and a scatter that can boost your payout potential.
Two or more scatters landing anywhere on the reels will reward you with multipliers - you can claim up to 200x your overall win if you happen to be lucky enough to land five of these symbols simultaneously! The scatter also triggers the free spins games, with up to 45 free spins yours for the taking. If you land a smaller win of a maximum of 140 credits, you can activate one of the two gamble games and see whether luck is with you and you can double your returns! And remember that our other free slots games are just as thrilling.
