While many of you that have played online pokies will have come to the conclusion that leading developers such as Net Entertainment are responsible for pokies with stunning graphics, you will quickly change that opinion after seeing the graphics on offer on ‘The Legend of Olympus’ from Rabcat. In fact, I would go as far to say that the graphics on this pokie are among the very best I have seen.
The 5-reel, 20-payline online pokie is based on the well known stories surrounding Olympus with the Greek gods all being represented in this beautifully developed pokie. To the left of the reels is Zeus who appears to be watching the proceedings whilst to the right is Hades, the God of the Underworld who looks nothing short of mischievous.
On the reels are a number of symbols that are all related to the theme of the pokie such as spears, helmets, shields, golden cups, and some of the gods such as Zeus and Hades themselves alongside the likes of Ares, Aphrodite, and Poseidon. The symbols that are represented by Zeus, Hades, and the gold coin are the games free spin, wild, and bonus symbols respectively.
The Legend of Olympus Features
The two main features in the Legend of Olympus are that of a free spins round and a bonus feature known as ‘River Styx”. The free spins round is activated when you land Zeus three times on your reels on a single spin. Once you do you will witness Zeus laying out some pain to Hades as he zaps him a few times with some lightning bolts with each zap bringing you a certain amount of free spins. Once the zapping has finished your free spins will start rolling in and bringing you some payouts and the possibility of earning even more free spins via landing additional Zeus symbols.
As for the ‘River Styx’ bonus feature, this is activated when you land three of the coin symbols on your reels. You will be presented with three coins on the screen that start spinning and you will have to click on each of them to reveal some rewards. The best scenario is that two of the coins reveal further coins that will propel you to an additional area that is guaranteed to bring you some more favorable payouts.
There is no doubt that the graphics will be what attracts players to this pokie initially but the game itself is actually a good one too. There are a couple of good features, some excellent animations, some gripping sounds, and more importantly, some decent payouts on offer. It might not offer the same depth as other pokies but all in all it is an enjoyable online pokie that will keep most players interested for quite some time.
