One of the leading online games developers, Betsoft Gaming, has announced the launch of its newest addition to the company’s line-up, a thrilling five-reel, three-row slot titled The Golden Owl of Athena.
Inspired by Greek mythology, the game features Athena, the goddess of wisdom, and the golden owl which leads the way to the slot’s numerous bonus features.
The slot is set in the garden of Mount Olympus and offers 10 fixed paylines that pay left to right, while the
When it comes to betting, the coin denomination is set from $0.01 to $, while the stake can be anywhere between $0.10 and $10 per spin.
High-paying symbols are represented by the Grecian urn, spear, and helmet, while the low-paying ones are the playing cards.
The Owl symbol is the game’s Wild, substituting for all other symbols in a winning combination.
The Owl also serves as the slot’s Scatter, and once it lands it will help the player grab free spins. If you manage to get three or more Owls in a single spin, Athena will award you between 8 and 20 free spins.
While this feature is active, the goddess and her golden owl will select a random symbol which will expand fully once it appears, thus increasing the chances for a huge win.
Another special feature is the Double up game. After a winning spin, a player can try to double the winnings by flipping the coin. Pick Heads or Tails, and if you guess right, the amount you won will be doubled.
Commenting on the launch of the new game, Betsoft’s Head of Product Development, Dan Cooper said that with The Golden Owl of Athena, the company had wanted to set a game in an under-served period of history and myth and to build several rewarding slot mechanics around a single symbol.
He added in the story of Athena and her namesake city, they had seen a chance to create an experience with real personality, where a standout character could have served as the key to a series of features, and the guide to both a rich setting and a clear paytable.
Cooper also stated that Betsoft believed players would love the game’s atmosphere and that focusing on the golden owl would encourage everyone to explore its full suite of features.
