RTG brings you yet another slot based on a classic tale. This time, it offers up Achilles, a 20 payline, 5 reel game that offers up two ways of triggering really fantastic free spin bonuses. This is a great offering for those who just cannot get enough free go-arounds as well as anyone into Greek mythology and the classics!
The tale of Achilles, Jason, Troy and the Trojan Horse is perhaps the most famous of all time. Now, you can relive this amazing tale through this slot. Although its presentation is somewhat dated, this solid slot offers up a presentation that features symbols that are sure to earn acclaim for those gamers who also happen to be into mythology. Indeed, icons include things like the city of Troy, Achilles, the famed Trojan Horse and Helen. The only real drawback here is that the game could desperately use some background music to make it a bit more entertaining.
Learning how to play Achilles will not require you to go to war. Instead, first use the arrows next to the "bet" and "lines" buttons to determine the credit denomination and number of lines in play, respectively. Next, click on "spin" to get the show on the road.
There are two very similar bonus features in Achilles: The first of these is the scatter bonus tied to the Troy symbol. Have three or more of this icon appear anywhere on the reels and you will receive 10 free spins. Winnings are doubled during this round and the feature is retriggered if you have three of any combination of Achilles/Troy symbols appear during the bonus round. If that is not enough, three or more Achilles symbols will win you between 15 and 25 free games. Upon entering the round, pick and Achilles to win 15, 20, or 25 free spins. All prizes are tripled during this bonus and Troy symbols are converted to Achilles and Helen icons to increase your chances of winning.
