Age of the Gods: Furious 4 Slot Review
At the beginning of 2016 Playtech announced its plans to launch The Age of Gods series of progressive jackpot slots which includes the Age of the Gods, Age of the Gods: King of Olympus and Age of the Gods: Furious 4 slots and will see a further four slots in the series being released over the months to come.
These slots have been specifically designed to replace their popular Marvel comics themed games after Disney acquired the franchise and did not renew any gambling related titles. As such great detail has gone into making these games worthy of their predecessors.
Of the three releases to date Age of Gods: Furious 4 seems to be the best choice to date, although that may just be our personal preference which is why we've taken the time to review it here.
The slot is a 5 reel, 20 payline machine with an Ancient Greek theme featuring 4 gods including Atlas, Apollo, Prometheus and Pandora (the Furious 4) each with their own free spins feature. And the game is all about the spins which give it an action packed pace throughout.
Also be on the lookout for the Furious 4 Wild symbol which has the highest value, awarding you with 10,000 times your line bet if 5 appear on a single payline.
Apollo's Age of Light free spins feature
As mentioned, the main appeal in the Age of God's: Furious 4 slot are the Free Games features which offer a whole lot of added excitement and reward. It also feels like they appear quite often which makes them even better!
Each god has their own dedicated game, any of which are activated when 3 or more scatters appear anywhere on the reels and award you with 12 free spins in one of the 4 furious features available depending on which of the 4 gods covers the middle reel of the slot.
These are as follows:
- Apollo's Age of Light feature which is triggered when Apollo covers the middle reel and gives you 4 Age of Light free spins with Apollo substituting for all other symbols (except wild and scatter) and expanding to cover the entire reel when landing for added rewards.
- Pandora's Age of Curiosity feature will give you a 1x stake cash prize when Pandora covers the middle reel during the free spins feature. You'll also receive 4 Age of Curiosity free spins which begin with a 1x multiplier and be on the lookout for Pandora as the multiplier grows every time she makes an appearance. But wait, there's more! Your total winnings from the 4 spins will be subject to a multiplier at the end of the feature too!
- Prometheus' Age of Fire feature - in this feature Prometheus covering the middle reels activates the 4 Age of Fire Free spins, with reel 1 being covered by locked Prometheus symbols and added symbols appearing on the other 4 reels for even more winning potential.
- The Atlas Age of Endurance feature sees Atlas covering the third reel and giving you 3 free spins where Atlas substitutes for all symbols except wilds and scatters and freezes on the reels for the duration of the spins to increase your wins.
As with all of the Age of the Gods slots, the Furious 4 slot offers you the opportunity to win 1 of 4 progressive jackpots at any time and the more you wager, the higher your chance of winning. The jackpot game is triggered at random and transports you to a 4x5 grid of 20 squares and you'll be required to match 3 symbols to with the Power, Extra Power, Super Power or Ultimate Power Jackpot with the latter being the highest.
