Rise of Olympus is a video slot game played on a 5x5 grid. Symbols drop down in the grid to form winning combinations. Wins are achieved by getting 3 or more symbols in a row, horizontally or vertically. All rows and columns are active, and symbols can be part of multiple winning combinations.
Winning combinations are removed after being collected, and remaining symbols drop down to possible form new winning combinations. The wild symbol will appear in the middle symbol location when a winning combination of 3 symbols is removed from the grid. A win multiplier is increased at each new drop.
Rise of Olympus includes a wild symbol (the Coin), three accompanying feature symbols (Helmet, Trident, and Bolt), and the faces of Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades; where forming any combination of the three symbols pay. The wild symbol substitutes for any other symbol to help comprise winning combinations. When the wild symbols are the only symbol remaining on the grid, they are removed, helping you trigger free spins!
The Hand of God feature has a chance to be triggered on non-winning spins. Depending on which active God is showing on the right-hand side of the screen, a different unique ability is performed. The Hand of God assists in creating potential winning combinations. In total, there are three Hand of God abilities – one for each God. They are as follows:
Hades: One set of symbols is chosen and transformed into another symbol.
Poseidon: One or two wild symbols will be added to the grid.
Zeus: Two sets of symbols are destroyed and removed from the grid.
The Wrath of Olympus feature is triggered when the on-screen meter is filled completely. This meter is only filled up using winning combinations of the God symbols. The wild symbol can be used as part of these combinations. All other combinations do not contribute.
The meter has 3 sections. Following the above rules; a five-of-a-kind combination fills up the meter with 3 sections, a four-of-a-kind combination fills up the meter with 2 sections, and a three-of-a-kind combination fills up the meter with 1 section.
Once the meter is full, and there are no further wins, one free round is awarded. The drop multiplier is reset. In the Wrath of Olympus feature, consecutive Hand of God features play after one another by their associated God. This order is the same each time the Wrath of Olympus feature is triggered. When there are no further wins after each drop, a God will perform its feature and the game will continue as normal until there are no further wins. This sequence is repeated until the end of the game and all Hand of God features have been performed. All wins are calculated and returned before the next game round starts.
The active God then changes back to the God on-screen prior to the Wrath of Olympus feature being triggered.
Clearing the whole grid from symbols will trigger the free spins feature. Choose one of the 3 free spins options available. Choosing Hades awards 4 initial free spins; choosing Poseidon awards 5 initial free spins; choosing Zeus awards 8 initial free spins. The associated Hand of God feature will then be active for the duration of the Free Spins, triggering on every non-winning free spin to further help create potential winning opportunities! The drop multiplier is not reset between game rounds for the duration of the free spin feature and can grow up to a maximum of x20!
The free spins feature can be extended by fully charging up the on-screen meter, with the same rules as described previously. Hades awards 4 additional free spins; Poseidon awards 3 additional free spins; Zeus awards 2 additional free spins. The maximum number of free spins is 20. The Wrath of Olympus is not active during free spins. If the grid is cleared during a free spin, you win an instant prize of 100x your total bet!
