Greek mythology is one of those things that seems to remain popular throughout countless generations. Casino game developers know this, and have developed many games based on the topic. Playtech's latest take on this is the Battle of the Gods slot, which brings with it a darker tone than many of the similarly themed games have given us in the past. This is a good thing, as Battle of the Gods bucks the trend and gives us something we haven't seen before.
Battle of the Gods is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that features gods such as Zeus, Poseidon, Aphrodite, and various Titan such as Atlas, who are engaged in battles with the gods of Olympus. Feature wise, the game includes wild symbols, scatter symbols, free spins, and win multipliers. The game allows punters to choose between a Titans Mode (where players earn 8 free games) or a Gods Mode (which can offer unlimited free games should they keep re-triggering). The game also features an X-Feature, which is set off when only god symbols take up the five positions on reels 2, 3, and 4, which have an "X" shape. If players end up striking this shape, the game pays off a handsome reward of 5x your total bet. Additionally, 5 wild symbols have a payout of 10,000x your wager amount should you get lucky on a single spin.
Playing Battle of the Gods is a harrowing experience, and there is an ominous tone that definitely helps put the player on edge for battle. The game can go a long time in between wins, but when the game does end up paying off big when the bonuses do indeed hit. Players who enjoy Greek mythology or darker toned games will love the brooding style of Battle of Gods, and there are enough bonuses included in the game to make the game definitely worth giving a try.
