The Golden Owl of Athena Slots - BetSoft
ABOUT THE GOLDEN OWL OF ATHENA SLOTS
The Golden Owl of Athena is a video slot boasting exceptional graphics and animations, supported by a magnificent Greek soundtrack. It was launched in June 2018 by Betsoft, a successful software provider. This Greek-themed game brings hefty prizes, for the Goddess Athena is very generous when it comes to bonus features.
The slot is played at 5 reels and 10 paylines to place your bets on. It comes with a range of bonus features that will boost your winning chances on every spin. They include Wild Substitutions, Scatter Pays and a Free Spins Game. However, you can expect a slightly below the average RTP set at 95.05%.
HOW TO PLAY
A 5-reel, 3-row layout is set against the backdrop of ancient temples on the Mount Olympus. There are 10 fixed paylines to wager on, with bets from as low as $0.10 and up to $10. To set the coin size, enter the Bet menu where you can scroll between $0.01 and $1. Tapping Spin will set the reels in motion and once symbols align on adjacent positions, from left to right, on a payline, payouts will be issued. Initiating Autoplay will have the reels spinning without interruption for a chosen number of times.
Playing card symbols Jack through Ace represent low-value icons delivering 100 and 150 coins for 5 of a kind. Apart from these low-win icons, all symbols on the grid are theme related. Medium-paying icons include a Chalice, a Dagger and a Helmet, all granting 750 coins when 5 hit a payline. An Olive Tree and the Pantheon stand for high-value symbols, both awarding 2,000 coins if 5 of a kind are on a payline. Landing 5 Athena icons grants the highest payout of 5,000 coins.
Keep an eye on the Golden Owl symbol as it is essential to triggering the game’s bonus features.
Wild is represented with the Golden Owl that lands on all reels and is capable of replacing all other icons in forming winning combinations. Unfortunately, when acting as Wild this icon doesn’t deliver payouts.
The Golden Owl stands for Scatter, as well. It rewards players with Scatter Wins no matter where it lands on the reels. From 3 to 5 Owls can appear to grant between 20 and 2,000 coins, a prize worthwhile waiting for.
Free Spins Game
To unlock the Free Spins feature you are to obtain at least 3 Scatters anywhere. Landing 3, 4 or 5 Golden Owls will reward you with 8, 12 and 20 freebies respectively. Before the round starts, one icon is randomly chosen to act as a special symbol during it. A sufficient number of these symbols will award bonus wins, for the icons will expand on the reels. The chance to re-trigger this Bonus will arise each time a minimum of 3 Scatters find their way to the grid.
Double Up Game and Buy Feature
After every winning spin you can gamble half or all your gains in the Double up feature. Should waiting for the bonus become too tedious, use the Buy feature and purchase 20 free spins for a predetermined price.
THE GOLDEN OWL OF ATHENA ON MOBILE
Considering the low betting range this slot offers, we find that the potential it has prize-wise is more than satisfying. Opportunities to get more than 5,000x the bet will mostly arise during the Free Spins game, for which you don’t have to wait as it is available in the Buy feature. As the game is optimized both for desktop and portable devices, look it up and give it a try whenever and wherever you choose.
