Dawn of Olympus Slot Review
The Greek Gods are back on the reels in this book-style mechanic slot. Yes, don't be deceived by the title, not having the word 'Book' in it doesn’t mean it is not a book-style slot. The Greek Gods also provide a bonus round, so pick wisely, and you could become the god of the jackpots. It's not like me to have a Greek salad for lunch, but now I see it was a premonition to the slot I was going to review.
Dawn of Olympus is a 5x3 reel, 10 payline video slot powered by GameArtsoftware. Symbols include Card Suits Diamonds, Hearts, Spades and Clubs, and 4 Greek God Character Symbols (Chronos, Gaia, Athena, and Zeus). Special Symbols include the Earth Wild/Scatter that also triggers the Free Spins Feature and the Medusa Bonus Symbol that triggers the Jackpot Bonus Feature. There are also 4 Fixed Jackpots up for grabs and a Buy Bonus Feature. More detail will be given in the Features section.
The game controls at the bottom of the reels are from left to right: the Settings Icon and History Icon, then the Information Icon that expands to the Paytable, the adjustable Coin Value window, Total Bet window, Autoplay button, Spin button, Balance Window, and Win window.
The features in Dawn of Olympus include the Earth Wild/Scatter that also triggers the Free Spins Feature and the Medusa Bonus Symbol that triggers the Jackpot Bonus Feature. There are also 4 Fixed Jackpots up for grabs and a Buy Bonus Feature.
The Earth Wild/Scatter as a Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Medusa Bonus Symbol, to form potential winning combinations.
As a Scatter, you need land 3 Earth Book/Wild Scatters to trigger the Free Spins Feature, awarding 8 Free Spins. Typical to the book-style mechanic, a random symbol will be selected for you when spinning the symbol wheel. This symbol will act as a special symbol in the feature. Every time it lands, it will expand, awarding a payout. The feature can be retriggered when landing 3 more Earth Wild/Scatters.
Land 3 Medusa Bonus Symbols on reels 2-4 to trigger the Jackpot Bonus Feature where you will select Medusa Bonus Symbols to reveal instant cash prizes or the Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand Jackpots. Match 3 of the same prize to be awarded that prize.
The Buy Feature allows you to buy the Free Spins Feature for 100x your stake or the Jackpot Bonus Feature for 25x your stake.
Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.
Dawn of Olympus is a pretty standard slot with features that have been done over and over again, so nothing new that we haven't seen before. However, the Free Spins Feature and Jackpot Feature can lead to some incredible wins. The graphics, design, and animation are well done. The RTP is at 96.13%, with high volatility.
The max coin win is 10000x your stake.
If you are a sucker for Greek mythology, then Dawn of Olympus won't disappoint, unless you are not a fan of the typical book-style mechanic. The features are a bit of a let-down considering that this is a 2020 released slot, but you can land some epic wins nonetheless. The rest is all Greek to me.
