Jewels of varying shapes and colours make up the lower-value symbols in the Power of Olympus slot machine, while rings, cups, and crowns make up the higher-value symbols. The Booming Games studio is not exactly known for its innovative spirit. Whatever the case may be, payouts for clusters of 25 or more gems range from 10x to 25x the wager, with payouts for clusters of higher symbols ranging from 40x to 100x the wager. When 5 or more identical symbols line up vertically or horizontally, the player wins. However, closer examination of the paytable reveals that many of the symbols are virtually identical.
The range of bet sizes, 0.02 to 20, is standard. The volatility is about normal, and the return to player (RTP) is just little below average at 95.6%. With a 31% success rate, though, you should expect to win about once every third time out. When compared to the competition, the highest payoff of 6,311.4 times the wager is quite generous.
The Cascading Wins feature in Power of Olympus is essential to the game's fun and is always on. All winning symbols will be removed from the reels after a win. Meanwhile, new symbols are dropped from above to fill in the spaces left by the previous ones. When no further winning combinations can be made, the cascade process stops.
The Random Wilds feature is vital to the game's success, as it is responsible for the vast majority of wins. After a winning cluster is formed, anywhere from one to three Wild symbols are placed on the reels to fill in the gaps. The Wild card can either be a simple Wild or a Multiplier Wild. Possible multiplier settings range from 2x to 3x to 5x. If a winning combination contains a multiplier Wild, then that multiplier will be used. Multipliers from individual Wild symbols are added together if they all contribute to the same winning combination.
Keep an eye out for the Zeus symbols since these are Scatters. Free spins are triggered when four or more appear on the reels in the same turn.
The bonus round is played in a manner analogous to the main game, with one key difference. Wild multipliers in the bonus round can reach 100x their normal value. The free games can now be triggered again. If you get three or more Scatters while in the bonus game, you'll get five extra spins!
