Open the Gates to Slot Heaven
No casino can claim to be one of the best online slots sites without boasting Gates of Olympus in its lobby. This award-winning game has iconic status courtesy of its tumble reels feature, random multipliers, free spins, and extreme volatility.
If you’ve read our Sweet Bonanza big win article, you’ll be more than familiar with the setup of this slot, as several elements are the same; however, there are also some major differences to separate them.
Gates of Olympus is a 6×5 ‘symbols pay anywhere’ slot (like the aforementioned Sweet Bonanza). It takes the accolade of being among the most volatile in Pragmatic Play’s portfolio, so players need to buckle up for plenty of dead spins and minuscule payouts while waiting for floodgates to open.
The RTP for Gates of Olympus is 96.50%, and its max win is 5,000x your bet amount. Both are respectable without being outstanding, in my opinion. Yet, it’s the all-around package of this slot that has made it a global favorite, as I delve into right here.
Tumble Reels is another element that’s been cloned from Sweet Bonanza. When a win is created, those symbols flash and then disappear from the reels. This activates the tumble feature, with symbols dropping down to fill the spaces and new symbols coming in to complete the reels.
The tumble reels feature creates the possibility of carving out consecutive wins from a single paid spin. I’m a big fan of tumble/cascading reels for this precise reason: they spice up the base game compared with more conventional slots.
Gates of Olympus has four multiplier symbols, represented by green, blue, purple, and red orbs, that can hit randomly on any spin in the base game, and the free spins bonus round. The value of the multiplier is one of the following: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, 10x, 12x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x, 100x, 250x, and 500x.
Gates of Olympus Free Spins
Four Zeus scatter symbols landing on the reels will trigger the Gates of Olympus free spins feature. Players are awarded 15 spins initially, but you can win an additional five free spins if another three Zeus scatters appear during the feature.
A total multiplier meter is added to the game when playing the free spins bonus round. The value of all multipliers that are part of a winning spin is added to the meter. This total then gets added to future wins.
For example, if on the first free spin, a win is made, and there’s a 10x multiplier. The win is multiplied by the multiplier (10x), and then the 10x is added to the total multiplier meter.
Now, let’s imagine on the third free spin, you get another win, and there is a 5x multiplier symbol. The is multiplied by 5x plus the 10x from the meter, meaning it’s multiplied by 15x. The 5x is added to the meter, and so on.
Ante Bet & Bonus Buy
Players can activate an ante bet function. This costs 25% extra on top of your base spin price. So, a $10 spin would cost $12.50 with the ante bet activated. When the ante bet is live, players stand a 50% better chance of winning the free spins feature.
Alternatively, if you want to cut to the chase, you can buy the Gates of Olympus free spins feature for 100x your spin amount. This is an exciting, high-risk, high-reward method of playing, which I only recommend to players who have a large enough bankroll to take a few heavy losses while waiting for a mega win.
Seeing players win hundreds of thousands of dollars highlights the massive win potential of online slots, but let’s put things into some perspective.
This player was spinning the reels for $450 a go. That is some serious moolah by any standards. Yes, casino games can be rewarding, but they should also be played purely for entertainment. Never gamble more than you can afford to lose.
