Chronicles of Olympus X UP Slot (Microgaming)

Chronicles of Olympus X UP Slot (Microgaming)This new title is a joint production by Alchemy Gaming and Microgaming. Chronicles of Olympus X UP is the second title that I have come across offering this type of mechanic.

The game borrows its inspiration from the Greek gods, and I love the creativity that the two developers have used to make it an interesting title.

Below, I will share my findings as a real money gamer:

Game Set-Up

Chronicles of Olympus X UP has a 5x3 reels design, and on the reels are 243 ways to win. Feature-wise, I got to work with free spins, increasing multipliers, and expanding wilds.

Betting and Prizes

With just $0.30, I was able to spin the reels of this slot, and the highest amount that you can put in each spin is $21.

When it comes to the rewards, Chronicles of Olympus X UP can be surprising! The slot has a jackpot that can pay up to 50,000x the stake or $1,050,000 in cash.

However, it’s a highly volatile game that highly volatile slot but one with a decent RTP of 96.33%.

Chronicles of Olympus X UP Slot Features

The game has some pretty good features, and among them is the expanding wild that comes with an image of a Golden God. This feature covers the entire reel where it lands, which allows it to contribute in all ways to win, without paying much attention to the symbols forming regular combos.

However, the feature will still need the rest of the symbols to complete the combo. If other wilds appear left to right, it will create combinations that can pay 4.16x the stake (this is for a full combo) or (1,000x for a screen filled with wilds).

The scatter feature was my next stop. I love this feature because of its potential, and with only two scatters landing at the same time, I received the X Up token. This in return boosted the multiplier trail on the left side of the reels.

They get the best out of the scatters, work towards getting at least 3 scatters at the same time. I successfully landed 3 such scatters on the reels earning 8 free spins (alongside the multiplier), retriggering the free spins is also possible.

Upsizer is another interesting choice in the game, and it will allow you to pay for a better multiplier. This option is available after you trigger the free spins, so it is up to you to decide on which way forward, between risking more, in exchange for a higher price, or remaining content with what you already have.

Theme & Design

Chronicles of Olympus X UP features the Greek deities and their place of habitat.

A Golden God serves as the expanding wild, while Scatters appear as Premium symbols in the images of five deities. Royals (10 to A) are present to represent the low-value icons.

Conclusion

Overall, Chronicles of Olympus X is a very enjoyable, fun and interesting slot, albeit a little volatile.

I find this level of volatility a little awkward coming from a developer like Microgaming who rarely deliver such.

Overall, it’s a great slot title with lots of potential provided that you can handle its high volatility.
