Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot (Microgaming)

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot (Microgaming)Microgaming, in partnership with triple Edge Studios, is back with another instalment of the Ancient Fortunes series, and this time it's all about Poseidon.

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot takes us to the shores of Greece, and gives us a chance to find out what happens when an old legend meets a modern slot machine.

The game features several symbols that will be familiar to anyone who has played other Megaways games.

Here is my review of the title:

Game Set-Up

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways uses the usual design found on most Megaways, and the slot offers 6 reels, and up to 117,649 active Megaways.

Among its features are a Jackpot Pick bonus, free spins, scatters, wilds, rolling reels, and multipliers.

Betting and Prizes

If you want to play for real money, then you will be happy to know that the slot allows bets of as low as $0.40 per spin. The highest that you can use per spin is $40.

The game is medium-high in volatility and it's capable of paying as much as 5,000x the stake. However, with help coming from some of the features, this can go to as high as 10,000xs.

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot Features

You can get up to 117,649 Megaways at most with the Megaways setup that allows for up to 7 symbols on each reel.

It’s worth noting that this number changes from round-to-round and there are lots of different combinations available.

With a combo of 3+ matching symbols, a feature that is known as a Rolling Reels mechanic will be triggered. This is a common feature of these type of slots. It works by removing the winning symbols and replacing them with new ones.

Trident Wilds are also present and they work as replacements for regular symbols.

The Jackpot Pick is a random feature capable of delivering several rewards. These include the slot’s fixed jackpots of 15x (Mini), 50x (Minor), Major (100x) and Mega (5,000x the stake).

The scatter (GOLD) will come in to deliver the free spins. Depending on how many you land, you can receive between 12 and 22 free rounds. You can also retrigger up to 10 extra spins.

Theme & Design

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways has a thrilling adventure, and you will be taken deep inside the depths of the sea, where the Ancient Greek god is the ruler.

It’s a slot that is inspired by mythology, and among the present symbols are GOLD (scatters), Trident (wild). images of Poseidon, gems (3 variants), an octopus, crabs, dolphins, a seahorse, shells, and bull’s head.


It’s not often that you see a slot game with an Ancient Greek mythological theme. This is one of those games, and as such has to be considered for what it is: A decent option if you want to play something different from all the other popular slots on offer at most casinos these days.
