The Age of the Gods: God of Storms slot by Playtech is another release in the Age of the Gods series and, as such, is connected to the progressive jackpot network.
The game is played on 5 reels, 3 rows with 25 paylines. Bet levels here range from 25 to 250 per spin, and the volatility is relatively low. This means that filling the reels with the Spartan warrior, the highest paying symbol with a max multiplier of x 5 attached, which is what is needed to win the game's potential top prize of 2,500 x your stake, is pretty difficult to achieve. But there will be lots of smaller payouts on the way. And everyone always has a chance of being chosen to play for the progressive jackpot.
The harbour of the ancient mythological city of Aeolia with Greek temples and an imposing fortress form the backdrop for the reels. The regular symbols are low-value card ranks from 10 to A alongside the premium-themed symbols of a Hydra (a kraken-style sea monster), an archer, a female warrior (Artemis), and a Spartan soldier in full battle gear. The Spartan soldier is the most valuable of the regular symbols, paying 20 x stake for five on a payline.
There are two wild symbols in this game. The standard wild and the Argo ship wild can only land on reels 2, 3, and 4. They both substitute for all the regular symbols to help you form winning combinations. What differentiates the two is that the Argo ship can also trigger the Wild Wind Respins bonus round when it lands fully stacked on any reel, and I'll tell you all about this below.
The Wild Wind Respins feature is triggered each time a stacked ship Wild lands anywhere on the reels. You’ll then be awarded a number of respins. For these, the God of Storms puts in an appearance on the right of the reels and blows the stacked Wild one reel to the left after every respin.
With each shift of the stacked Wild to the left, the multiplier value increase. Respins keep going until the stacked Wild has been blown clear off the reels. When this happens, you’ll get one final respin sans Wild, and the round ends.
To reach the maximum multiplier of 5 x, you'll need to start the round with a fully stacked wild on reel 4, so it can be blown right across the grid to reel one. Stacked Wilds can also land during the respins and keep the round going for longer.
And as this is an Age of the Gods slot, this progressive jackpot bonus game, played on a 5x4 grid, can trigger randomly at any time to give you a chance at one of four progressive jackpots.
The Age of the Gods series never gets old, and God of Storms is now the eighth game to be released by Playtech in it, by my count, at least. It offers as much and more in terms of stunning visuals and immersive gameplay as its predecessors, so try it out today here at Gala Casino.
