The Golden Owl of Athena Slot
The Golden Owl of Athena is one of the Betsoft slots, a game in which we’re getting a theme that is inspired by mythology of Ancient Greece, and by the owl that accompanied Athena, a goddess that represented wisdom.
There will be 10 active lines present on 5 reels in The Golden Owl of Athena, and as you play you can get wins as high as $562,500 from a single round of the game. Among its features there is the Owl as both a wild and a scatter, plus free spins which have random special symbols.
Betting and Prizes
Betting is not going to vary by much, as the game has only 10 lines and limited coin values for you to choose from. The latter goes from $0.01 to $1, so the total betting range for this slot is going to be $0.10 to $10.
Looking at the payouts that you’re offered, the most interesting part about them is that Betsoft mentions that wins of $562,500 are a possibility in a single spin, which would be quite an impressive reward considering the bets that are allowed in this game. As for the RTP that has been announced for the slot, it’s at only 95.05%, this being the slightly disappointing part.
The Golden Owl of Athena Slot Features
You don’t have a terribly long list of features to go through, but some are provided, and they are all based on the Owl symbol. This is both your wild and your scatter symbol, so depending on the situation it can be a substitute that helps you form one more winning combination, or it can be the trigger for the free spins.
In order to get access to the free spins feature, the game will require that you have 3, 4 or 5 Owls in any position in the game. As they appear scattered, the only requirement is to have the right number of symbols. Those symbols will grant you access to 8, 12 or 20 free spins, depending on how many they were around.
Once you’ve reached the free spins, the game will choose one random symbol that will become special for their duration. If you get enough special symbols to appear, they will expand and take over the entire column, offering good bonuses.
Theme & Design
A game that is inspired by the Ancient Greeks is not exactly something new and exciting, but this slot has its own things to set it apart. For one, the focus is on the Owl of Athena, the wisdom goddess. I don’t even remember Athena having her own slot machine, so the owl is an even more unusual choice.
The graphics are representative of the look that the Greeks are known for, in terms of building style and objects. The symbols show us an Owl as the major feature symbol, and after that we have Athena, a Temple, a Tree, a Soldier’s Helmet, a Sword, an Amphora, and four playing cards.
I think that you will appreciate the look of the game, Betsoft did a good job here. They’re known for even better-looking slot machines though, true cinematic experiences, so in The Golden Owl of Athena it feels like they settled and went back to the level of the average slot developer.
There are some interesting things about The Golden Owl of Athena, especially its huge potential payouts and its theme. I’m not as impressed by its RTP or its spread of features though.
