One more slot machine has been added by Playtech to their Age of the Gods series, and in this case it’s the one called Ruler of the Sky. The game’s focus is on the Pegasus, a mythical horse-like creature with big beautiful wings, similar to those you’d see mentioned in the case of angels. Once again, a slot with progressive jackpots to offer, as well as several good features.
The game will feature a total of 40 active lines, the reels being slightly taller at 5x4 positions available. You can win the Ultimate progressive jackpot, one of the smaller payouts, or a fixed reward that could even go up to 1,000x the stake. Stacked wilds, free games and scatter symbols will make sure that your games are a lot more fun in the long run.
Betting and Prizes
The betting starts from as little as $0.01, but if you need all 40 lines in play you’re going to invest a bit more, at least $0.40 being the starting point. High-rollers have the option to go a lot higher, spending upwards of $50 per line, or $2,000 overall.
In Ruler of the Sky, it’s once again the progressive jackpots that seem to offer the highest value, though the game holds its own when forming combinations that pay up to 25x the stake, or $50,000. Take into account that the wilds land stacked, and a screen-full of wilds is not impossible, meaning that a $2,000,000 jackpot could be awarded to a high-roller (1,000x the stake).
Age of the Gods Slot Features
The Pegasus, the winged stallion that’s mentioned in the legends of Ancient Greece, will serve as a stacked wild symbol that is available on all the reels of the game. It can be an incredibly powerful feature in this game, not to mention highly profitable since a combo of that type will pay handsomely (1,000x line bet). Take into account the stacked nature of the symbol, and you can figure out that the game can form winning combinations multiple times in a single round with wilds in them.
The list of features continues with an equally impressive free games bonus, which you get through scatter symbols that need to appear at the same time on all three middle reels. You get a small payout as well, 3x the stake, plus access to 5 free spins. Additional free spins may be won through the same scatters, and as you play through the feature you will have stacked Pegasus wilds land a lot more often.
The Jackpot Game is another feature that you can get, but this one is quite rare, and in fact you can’t even trigger it through the slot’s symbols. It happens at random, and when it does the feature will give you picks to make from the 20 coins that are visible. Match 3 and you win one of the four progressive jackpots. One of those can even make you a millionaire.
Theme & Design
With the same Ancient Greece theme as the rest of the slots from the Age of the Gods series, which Playtech puts a lot of emphasis on, Ruler of the Sky gives you a fairly well- made design. It involves a lot of themed symbols (temples, vases, helmets, harps, Pegasus and logos), but also some less fun ones (six blue playing cards, with golden accents on them). It’s going to be well-enough designed, to at least be considered above average.
Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Sky is Playtech’s latest game and one of the many in their collection to offer big progressive jackpots. The features and regular payouts of the game aren’t too bad either.
