Rise of Athena Slot (Play n’ Go)

Rise of Athena Slot (Play n’ Go)Ancient Greek mythology has been one of the most popular themes with slot developers, and once again, we get to see it on this title by Play n Go.

Rise of Athena is the name of the slot, where Athena is the goddess of wisdom. As I came to find out, the slot has some connections to Greece and its temples, and below is my unbiased review:

Game Set-Up

Rise of Athena uses the usual 5x3 setup and only 10 pay lines.

For the features, Play n’ GO has used free spins (has sticky multipliers), and some wilds.

Betting and Prizes

When you check the bottom part of the game, you will find the betting options available and they are between $0.10 and $100 per spin.

It is common to find Play n’ Go slots offering a top payout of 5,000x the stake. This is the same scenario with Rise of Athena, a game that comes with medium volatility.

I will also mention the slot’s RTP of 96.20% that is within the average for a modern slot.

Rise of Athena Slot Features

Rise of Athena is quite impressive, and one of the reasons is due to its special features.  Although these features aren’t very many the few that are available are quite powerful.

For example, the available wild symbols will apply multipliers, and after combining them, they will deliver winning boosts of up to 27x.  

The multiplier is between 1x and 3x, so to get the best out of it, you will need to combine as many as three wilds within the slot’s middle three reels.

The wild appears in the image of a coin. This can be in various colours like gold, bronze, and silver. It all depends on the multiplier emblazoned on it.

The free spins are the other features on Rise of Athena, and these also come with sticky multipliers. To trigger the free spins, you will need some assistance from the Owl scatter.

With at least 3 Owl scatters, you will be rewarded with up to 12 free spins, alongside a prize as high as 500x the stake.

Theme & Design

Rise of Athena’s story revolves around the legends of Ancient Greece, and for the main character, Play n Go has used the goddess.

In addition to being a goddess of war, she was also a goddess of wisdom, which is why the developer has considered using the Owl on the reels.

The design is great, and it blends perfectly with the background. Just like the many other slots from Play n’ Go that I have come across, Rise of Athena is equally fun and quite interesting to play.

The symbols include images of Owls (scatters), Coins (wilds), Athena, Pot, Helmet, Pegasus, Scroll and some Royals.


Rise of Athena is a slot with lots of benefits to the player. Due to its common theme, at first, I had my reservations, but as I continued playing the slot, I came to realise that it has its unique approach, especially with the goddess.

Although the slot lacks a long list of features, it still manages to deliver good payouts, and I can recommend it to all level of players.
