Coins of Olympus Slots

Coins-of-OlympusCoins of Olympus seems to be one of the older Rival Gaming slot machines, or at least that’s the impression you get when you see its very old and low resolution design. Themed around the gods of Olympus, the game has many of them on the reels, starting with Zeus of course, continuing with Apollo, Athena, Aphrodite and so on. It’s not an unprecedented theme, it’s been chosen before, but it’s far from being at least average if you compare it with its direct competitors.

You will discover a total of 5 reels in Coins of Olympus, with the most paylines you can activate being 25. The game’s list of features gets you access to bonus features, free spins, multipliers, scatter symbols and expanding wilds, all great to have and making up somewhat for the design. A $10,000 top prize is the biggest reward you can take away from it.

Features of Coins of Olympus

The features of the game are comprised of three different options, starting with the expanding wild, then moving on to the free spins, and finally to the bonus game. Scatter symbols and multipliers are also added to this mix, so the features look quite good, even though the design doesn’t.

An expanding wild tends to be a valuable addition to any game, especially in a case like this, where it’s not limited to just one or two reels. Showing an image of an owl, sculpted into some sort of coin, this symbol has the ability to substitute for other symbols and it will fill up the entire reel it appears on, as long as that forms a new win for the player. It keeps to its original symbol spot if it doesn’t help in any way if it expands.


Free Games Feature

A Gold Coin is selected for the scatter symbol that can get you free spins in Coins of Olympus. Three Gold Coins on the screen, in random positions, will get you 5 spins for free and x3 multipliers. The same multiplier is offered for four or five scatter symbols as well, but it applies to 10 or 20 free spins, respectively.

Bonus Game

Finally, we have Zeus in the role of the bonus symbol with scatter abilities. Appearing anywhere on the reels, this scatter has to be present a minimum of three times, to get you the bonus game. The symbol that gets you this feature is the one where Zeus is holding a lightning bolt.

Betting options and jackpots

Though the wagers only go up to $62.50, you can select up to 250 coins for a bet in this game. The reason for the low value is the denomination of the coins, which only goes up to $0.25. A maximum of 10 coins per line are selectable, the total value being up to $2.50.

The 4,000x top reward of the game will put up to 40,000 coins in your pocket, but their cash value is a maximum of $10,000.

Design and symbols

The game uses a lot of stone in its design, wanting to suggest that the action takes place in the temple of the gods, with marble being present everywhere. It manages to look a bit like a caveman slot machine, at least if you ignore the symbols and you just look at the general design. Overall, quite a bad looking slot machine, not something I’d suggest to someone that is sensitive to the look of a game.

Symbols: Poseidon (4,000x), Zeus (bonus), Owl Coin (wild), Gold Coin (scatter), Hades (1,000x), Hera (600x), Ares (400x), Athena (250x), Aphrodite (150x), Dionysus (100x), Hermes (75x) and Apollo (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The theme would be interesting enough normally, but the design manages to ruin it for most players. The features should be good enough, so if you can get over the design, the slot should be a decent choice.

This Coins of Olympus slot is offered by all online casinos with Rival software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
