Pragmatic Play, a flagship slot provider with 80+ HTML 5 titles for mobile and desktop computers based in Silema, Malta, has been active in several fields lately. On June 26, it released Wisdom of Athena, a Greek mythology-themed slot featuring Athena, the goddess of warfare and wisdom and then, on June 27, it officially concluded a contract with Salsa Technology, in order to strengthen its position in the Latin American market.

Outstanding visual:

True to its title, the main theme of the slot is the aforementioned goddess of wisdom and warfare. The game takes place in a mystical world where the mighty Olympian gods live and where great chests full of treasures are hidden. In the background of the reels, players can see extraordinary, majestic buildings with Athena standing to the right of the reels. In addition, the game can be played on any device.

To win, players must form a combination of 8 matching symbols on a dynamic 6×6 grid that offers 8 paylines and where the Scatter Pay mechanism is applied.

The basic low-value symbols are ancient Greek objects that have a gold frame with green, purple, blue, pink and red colors, while the high-value bonus symbols are a scroll, cauldron, helmet and a golden shield describing Medusa. A combination of 15 or more low-value bonus symbols is worth between 2,5x to 7,5x, increasing to 10x to 50x a player’s bet for a combination of 15 or more high-value bonus symbols. Also, there are some specific symbols such as Athena, which is the game’s Scatter, and if players land 4, 5 or 6 of them during the Free Spins, they are worth 2x, 15x and 100x a player’s bet, respectively. However, in addition to these, there is also a Multiplier Symbol, which land throughout spins in the form of blue, green, purple and red gemstones.

The game has high volatility, a default RTP of 96.07% and a maximum win of 5,000x a player’s bet.

Slot features:

Tumble – when players make a winning combination, this feature is triggered. As soon as it’s activated, all the symbols that were part of the winnings will vanish from the reels, and new ones will fall on empty places. This feature continues as long as new wins are made, and above every reel, one position is locked.

In addition, as players continue to create subsequent tumbles, they may gradually unlock the following:

  • 1 Tumble – the locked position on reel 1 becomes unlocked;
  • 3 Tumbles – the locked position on reel 2 becomes unlocked;
  • 6 Tumbles – the locked position on reel 3 becomes unlocked;
  • 9 Tumbles – the locked position on reel 4 becomes unlocked;
  • 12 Tumbles – the locked position on reel 5 becomes unlocked;
  • 15 Tumbles – the locked position on reel 6 becomes unlocked.

Multiplier Symbol – when the winnings are created, the aforementioned Multiplier Symbol will be added to the total win multiplier which is then applied to the total winnings when the Tumble feature is finished. Additionally, they may land with values of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 8x, 10x, 12x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 30x, 40x, 50x, 60x, 80x, 100x, 150x, 200x, 300x, 400x or 500x.

Free Spins – this feature is triggered when players land 4 or more Scatters. After landing the appropriate bet size from a combination of 4, 5 or 6 Scatters, players are automatically awarded 10 free spins, and all top rows will be fully locked from the start. However, they may be unlocked in the same way as in the base game, but progress stays within the performed spins.

Therefore, if players land 3 or more Scatters, they will receive 5 additional free spins. Also, by landing one or more Multiplier Symbols, they are added to the total win multiplier that stays throughout the entire feature.

Ante Bet – this feature is triggered when players pay 25% extra of their bet size, increasing their chances of triggering the Free Spins by allowing additional Scatters to land. However, the RTP is 96.08% with this option.

Bonus Buy – in order to trigger this feature, the player should want to get to the Bonus Game immediately. Also, triggering this feature costs 100x the bet and requires 4 or more Scatters. The RTP is the same as for the Ante Bet feature.
