Fancy an exciting trip to the magnificent, ancient Greek empire ruled by sage Greek gods and goddesses? If your answer is affirmative and you are into the rich and diverse culture and history full of wonders, you should definitely not miss out on The Golden Owl of Athena – a brand-new slot from Betsoft. The visual masterpiece with the wise owl taking center stage of the game benefits from the Free Spins feature, special symbols with Bonus wins and the Buy feature that will allow you to activate the feature of your choice for some extra money. The top-prize on offer is 56,200 coins.
Before you team up with the owl and start your quest for wisdom and money, make sure to adjust the bet by clicking on Line Bet. The total stake ranges between $0.10 and $10, which may not please the high-rollers, but will, no doubt, satisfy casual players and low-rolling punters. The Autoplay option will come in handy if you want to sit down and relax while the reels are spinning for a chosen number of times. Finally, Double Up will activate the gamble mode, whereas Spin will set the reels in motion.
The reels are home to the goddess Athena herself, the Golden Owl, the temple of Athena – Pantheon, a Greek warrior's helmet, a spear, olive tree, and a chalice. The traditional playing card symbols make up the lower ends of the paytable. The most rewarding among them is Athena, giving you 5,000 coins, for lining up five of them on a single line.
Land three, four or five owl Scatters anywhere in view to trigger the Free Spins feature awarding 8, 12, or 20 free spins, respectively. Keep in mind that 1 symbol will be chosen at random during the feature. That symbol will expand to cover an entire reel, helping you enhance your winning power and get a bonus win.
It's important to note that you can trigger the Free Spins round anytime you wish. In other word, thanks to the Buy feature, players can purchase 20 free games, along with the randomly triggered expanding symbols feature, which will cost 93x your current bet.
Owl Scatters can also bring cash rewards of its own, so landing 5 owls will award 200x your bet besides triggering 20 free spins.
If you want to double your winnings, use the Double Up feature. The option will start the Heads or Tails guessing game where you will flip golden coins. Be cautious here since any incorrect guess will leave you empty-handed.
The highest potential win on a single spin is 56,200 coins.
The Golden Owl of Athena is a medium variance game with an average return to player of 95.05%. The slot boasts brilliant visuals and immersive music score that will keep you on the edge of your seat for hours. What we didn't quite like is the betting range which is rather narrow, but will definitely suit the low-rollers. If you are a big fan of Greek history and culture, then this Betsoft title will surely be right up your street.
