Greek Mythology and deities seem to make good subjects for slots and gaming sites. In recent months we've seen the launch of Bingo Godz, the next addition in the Zeus slot series and now there's Odds Of The Gods, a new slot game that's just launched at William Hill Games.
Odds Of The Gods is a fairly standard slot game - it has five reels and twenty win lines. The graphics are good and there's a nice bit of dramatic music to accompany proceedings. It's not up to the standard of Net Entertainment slots such as Aliens or Eggomatic but then it doesn't need to be. The symbols are Greek Gods or the usual J, Q and K fashioned in what we can only describe as stony. The big selling point for this slot though is it's umpteen bonuses!
Most slots only have a wild and one feature bonus but Odds Of The Gods have multiple versions. There's a Mount Olympus Bonus, Hermes Bonus, Shield Bonus and Athena Bonus. Three of these appear on the reels and are always met with flames as you hone in on them - mind you the fires are rapidly extinguished along with your hopes when the third bonus reel fails to drop in. We're not sure what the odds are of getting a bonus but during our test play only the Athena Bonus popped in. In both cases the awards were sizeable.
However we did find the constant appearance of bonus symbols a little disconcerting. It just felt that Odds Of The Gods got your hopes up on every spin and in the end it was more tempting to bin it then spin on. However, the Athena Bonus is a nice surprise when it comes in. The slot has a minimum stake of 20p and a maximum stake of £500. Note that you have to play all 20 lines as there's no option to play less than 20.
Odds Of The Gods does come with a Progressive Jackpot. This can be won in the Mount Olympus bonus round. Pick symbols as you make your way along the trail to the home of The Gods. Reveal a diamond and you could be taking home some big money. The odds of winning that are probably quite high though. We can't see The Gods wanting to smile too fondly on players and being happy to dish out the progressive on a regular basis!
This slot is available at William Hill Games and other online casinos.
