Greek Gods Take Over Playtech Online Casinos


The Age of the Gods series has seamlessly replaced the Marvel superhero series without a hitch. With changes in Marvel ownership it was clear that the agreement for the superhero branded slots would not be renewed. Playtech launched the Age of the Gods series about six months before Marvel went off line giving players at its online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino ample time to become familiar with the new games.

The Age of the Gods slot games based on Greek mythology was a perfect choice. There is considerable similarity between the Greek deities and the Marvel heroes. Both are super human. Both have considerably documented life stories. Both have iconic emblems that are identifiable. There is a one to one correspondence between the two series as far as slots engines are concerned. For example The Hulk and Prince of Olympus share the same slots engine and so do Elektra and Goddess of Wisdom. When the Age of the Gods series was launched it was in effect networked to the Marvel Mystery progressive jackpot. The only difference is that the Marvel games are branded slots whereas the Age of the Gods slots are not. The fact is that players at Playtech online casinos are no longer missing the Marvel superhero branded slots.

Iron Man 2 was the most popular of the Marvel slots. King of Olympus, using the same template, is proving to be equally popular. Zeus is the wild symbol and awards the top line payouts. Other thematic symbols are Pegasus, warship, harp, urn and temple. The bonus feature awards 10 free spins that start with a 2x payout multiplier. Every time Zeus appears as an extra fixed wild on the centre row of the third reel the payout multiplier will increase.

The flagship online slot of the series is titled Age of the Gods. It has the same template as the popular Marvel slot game The Avengers. Athena, Zeus, Poseidon, Hercules and Artemis are the Greek superheroes that award the high payouts. There is a similar bonus game played on the reels. When the five different deities appear on an active payline in any order you are awarded 200 times the line bet. Furious 4 is based on the Marvel branded pokie Fantastic 4. The four Greek heroes are Prometheus, Apollo, Pandora and Atlas. Each offers his or her unique free spins.
