Age of the Gods: Epic Troy Slot Review (Playtech)
Epic Troy adds to the list of the many slot games from this series that Playtech has released into the market.
The series seems to work well for Playtech given the effort the developer has continuously put in the design of these slots.
Epic Troy has some very impressive jackpots, but I realised that most of them come from the progressive jackpots of this slot.
The highest win potential (per spin) that the slot can deliver on its own is 600 plus the stake.
On the part of the features, Epic Troy does quite well. Several features are present on this slot and they include re-spins, free spins, stacked symbols, wilds as well as scatters.
The slot is built on 5 reels and a total of 243 ways to win.
Betting and Prizes
Bet prices vary and you are allowed to spend between $0.20 and $500 per spin.
As I have mentioned above, Epic Troy does not offer very huge returns on its own, however, its four progressive jackpots deliver good payouts.
The top progressive jackpot has the potential to go to as high as 900,000 EUR.
Epic Troy has an RTP of 96.5% which is pretty good for a slot of medium to high volatility.
Age of the Gods: Epic Troy Slot Features
Just as is the case with many other free slots, the wild is present on this slot. It will appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel. I was able to use the wild as a substitute for all other regular symbols, and it assisted me in creating a winning combination.
Epic Troy comes with three main characters, and these appear stacked on the slot’s reels. Anytime these characters appear two or more times, they will each deliver a Respin feature.
One of those characters is the Achilles. With it, the triggering stacks will get locked, after which the other symbols respin one more time. These then get transformed into wilds, together with all other Achilles stacks that appear after that.
There is also Helen’s respins whose work is to lock the triggering symbols. Respins will continuously come your way as long as you continue to get new Helen symbols. This is because the feature resets them after every3 appearances.
Paris is the other respin feature on this slot. With it, the triggering symbols will get locked, and 2 respins will follow. Paris symbols will then expand on the slot’s reel, after which they will get locked.
The number of Paris reels is what determines the cash prize you get. However, as much as150x is quite possible.
You will also get some free spins on Epic Troy that you can trigger with the help of 3 to 5 scatters. This will award you a total of 6 free spins.
Theme & Design
The slot relies on the usual mythology from Ancient Greece. The story touches on the siege of Troy.
Apart from the three main symbols (Achilles, Paris, and Helen of Troy), there are other symbols that come in the form of ships and Royals.
Age of the Gods: Epic Troy is an average slot game that is pretty good for players who have a little more experience in the gaming industry. The RTP, coupled with the slot’s progressive jackpots makes it a great slot to try.
