Launched during August 2016, Playtech added another Age of the Gods slot to their collection, this time, called Goddess of Wisdom. If you know your Greek Mythology then you will know it refers to Athena but not only was she a Goddess of Wisdom but she was also the Goddess of military victory.
Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom by Playtech is a 5-reel and 3-row online slot. It uses 20 customisable bet lines. The game includes a wild substitution symbol to increase your chance of a win in the base game, a scatter symbol which activates a Battle Bonus Game and four individual jackpots that you can win in the Jackpot game.
How to play Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom Video Slot
When the game first loads you will be treated to an intro that details the main feature of the game which is the Battle Game. Just select the continue button to load up the main game screen. The backdrop of the game is the ancient city that Athena is the patron of and you are within a building with ornate pillars. The predominant colours are gold and browns with all symbols, text and styling fitting the theme of the game.
The lower value symbols for this game are made up of the playing card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. You then have various items that are associated with the Goddess of Wisdom. These include fruit, shoes, an armoured helmet, body armour and a symbol of the sun. The scatter symbol is an Owl that appears to have a scroll in its feet and finally the Goddess herself acts as the Wild symbol.
Before playing the Goddess of Wisdom online slot you should set your cost per spin with the + and – symbols under the line bet option. This setting ranges from as little as 1p all the way up to £50. The number of bet lines can also be changed from 1 up to the maximum of 20. Adjusting these options together allows you to set the cost per spin from 1p (20p for all pay lines) up to £1,000.
To start playing Goddess of Wisdom click the ‘Spin’ button in the bottom-right corner. The ‘Auto Play’ button lets you set the number of automatic spins to 10, 25, 50 or 99.
As you play the game you will immediately see and hear the quality of this online slot. The graphics are excellent and the emotive music creates a great immersive atmosphere, especially during the Battle Game bonus round. During the base game, you will be looking to match symbols on an active pay line. The wild symbol makes your job easier as it substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter symbol.
To activate the Battle Bonus round you need to land 3 or more scatter symbols. You will then be given a choice of how you want to defend the city. You can choose one of three symbols. Each has a special feature and your chosen symbol will then also replace the other two symbols during the Battle Bonus. The options are the Sun Symbol which grants 10 free spins, the Centurian Helmet which grants 7 free spins with a 4x multiplier or finally, body armour which grants 14 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Once you have made your choice your free spins will begin.
The Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom also has four progressive jackpots that you can win. At any time on any spin and at any stake level you can randomly have the Jackpot game activated. This can even be with a non-winning spin. If this is the case, then you will be presented with a series of 20 coins. Click the coins as quick as you can to reveal the name of one of the four jackpots. The first 3 matching coins will win you that jackpot prize.
