How to Win Big in Rise of Athena – Free Spins

Three or more Owl symbols (in Greek mythology Athena was accompanied by a little owl, which is often seen as a symbol of knowledge and wisdom) trigger 12 free spins. During the free spins round, wild symbols remain sticky for as many spins as their assigned multiplier values allow. Wilds have win multipliers of up to 3x applied, so when a 3x wild lands, it remains on the reel for 3 spins, with the multiplier value decreasing by 1x each spin.)

Special Features

  • Multiplier Wilds

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, Rise of Athena benefits from multiplier wilds in both the base and bonus games. The wilds only appear on the middle three reels, and are represented by gold, silver, or bronze coins. Each wild coin has a multiplier value attached (1x for bronze, 2x for silver, 3x for gold) which is applied when appearing in a winning combo. When more than one multiplier wild appears in the same winning combo, the win is multiplied by all multiplier values. The maximum win multiplier in any game, therefore, is 27x.

Look and Feel of Rise of Athena

Rise of Athena has a crisp, clean aesthetic, albeit with a very simple, static design. The action takes place in an open air Greek temple, a structure of white columns with gold detailing.

The game uses 10 regular symbols with royal playing cards 10-A as the low payers. The high value symbols follow the Greek theme, with Athena as the highest value, awarding 150x the bet size for 5 on a payline. The Owl scatter is the highest paying symbol, paying 500x for 5 anywhere in view. See below for the full paytable of regular symbols.

With just the one main feature and its uncomplicated artwork, Rise of Athena is one of the simpler games you’ll play. It’s fair to say that his game hardly reinvents the wheel and may not suit many of today’s slot players who crave multiple features and extravagant animations. However, it is right in the wheelhouse of many high variance players who hunt for these types of games where the wins don’t fall so often, but when they do, they can be huge. A simple yet effective addition to Play’n GO’s portfolio.
