The Golden Owl of Athena is yet another stunning example of the designers at Betsoft who have constantly released the most superb slot games. The Golden Owl of Athena is no exception. If you recall in Xena: Warrior Princess, you will remember the scene in which Xena kills Athena to save her daughter and Gabrielle. This Ancient Greek theme-based slot is realistic, and although it has card symbols, you have to take in the entire visual landscape of this game.
About the Game
We recommend that before you play the game, you read the multi-page pay table as it contains the symbols, payouts, special features, and general rules of the game. There is a Double Up button, where you can double your winnings in a Heads or Tails game, and the Auto Play button. Moreover, I particularly enjoy the fact that the max bet is only $10 per spin, which I feel will attract players to the casinos where this game can be played.
Playing the Game
There are three types of symbol values in this game: High, Mid, and Low. Athena is the high value symbol and if you get all five of her you will win 5000 coins. There are also mid value symbols and low value symbols in this game. The Golden Owl of Athena is the special symbol in that he is the keeper of sacred knowledge and when you get three or more on the reels, you will unlock the Wisdom of Free Spins.
The free spins are allocated as follows:
- Get 3 Owls to win 8 free spins
- Get 4 Owls to win 12 free spins
- Get 5 Owls to win 20 free spins
The Golden Owl will also bring Insight. Scatter wins and Wilds will substitute for all other symbols. The scatter wins are as follows:
- 5 Owls pays out 2000
- 4 Owls pays out 200
- 3 Owls pays out 20
The Free Spins Bonus Symbol
During the free spins round, a single symbol will be chosen at random. If enough of these symbols appear on the reels, they will expand and award Bonus wins. In addition, if two or three special symbols appear next to or on top of each other during the base game, you will be awarded a bonus win. All payouts are multiplied by the line bet.
The New Golden Owl of Athena Slots
This is a highly valued game. This could be due to the theme of the game or perhaps like Cleopatra, Athena played a major role in Greek mythology.
