What is Age of the Gods?
Age of the Gods is the name of a series of progressive jackpot slot games by Playtech.
Age of the Gods slot games first appeared in early 2017 shortly before Playtech’s rights to use Marvel comic characters including the Avengers in their slots games expired – an inevitable consequence of the earlier purchase of the Marvel brand by Disney. The Marvel Jackpot had been extremely well known and popular for almost a decade and by phasing out the Avengers slots and replacing them with Age of the Gods titles over a few months Playtech were able to keep the same progressive jackpot going. In fact some of the early titles in the Age of the Gods series were straightforward reskins of the Marvel games they replaced.
The Age of the Gods progressive jackpot, like the Marvel Jackpot, has four pots – Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power and these normally pay out 3, 4, 5 and 6 figures respectively. The jackpot game can be triggered by any spin at any bet size and when it is, the player is guaranteed to win one of the four pots. The jackpot game screen holds 20 gold coins and the player turns them over until they reveal three of a kind determining which jackpot they win.
Most Age of the Gods games including Age of the Gods Roulette are attached to the progressive, but now some Age of the Gods branded games have been released that are not part of the progressive jackpot network. These games also differ from the rest of the series in that they can be played at Playtech/Virtue Fusion bingo sites (including with slot bonus) rather than at Playtech casinos (just to be confusing, some Playtech bingo sites have the jackpot AotG slots available to play in a separate casino tab).
Age of the Gods Progressive Jackpot Games
Age of the Gods
Age of the Gods itself, the first of the games to be released, is a reskinned version of the Avengers slot. It has 20 fixed paylines and RTP of 94.03% (excluding the jackpot). The bonus feature is triggered by 3 or more AotG scatters and consists of the classic Age of the Gods array of gold coins. The player turns coins over until the reveal a set of 3 of one of the Gods, triggering 9 free spins with that God’s special bonus feature. After playing the spins the player returns to the bonus feature to turn more coins over (and perhaps trigger another God’s 9 free spins). The bonus feature ends when Hades is revealed.
Age of the Gods Furious 4
Age of the Gods: Furious 4 is reskinned from Fantastic Four. 94.88% incl JP. Another 20 line slot, it has RTP of 93.88% (excluding the jackpot). The Furious 4 are Apollo, Pandora, Hephaestus and Atlas and their special powers come into play during the bonus round; this is triggered by 3 or more scatters and starts off with 12 free games. During the free games, the four are stacked on reel 3 and when one of them covers the reel, that god’s special bonus feature is triggered – 4 spins with expanding wild for Apollo, 4 spins with a dynamic multiplier for Pandora, 4 spins with extra symbols for Hephaestus and 3 spins with freezing wilds for Atlas.
Age of the Gods King of Olympus
Age of the Gods: King of Olympus is another reskin, this time of Iron Man 2. It has 25 fixed paylines and RTP of 94.99% (excluding the jackpot) The bonus round of 20 free spins is triggered by 3,4 or 5 Zeus scatters; they play with a multiplier that starts at x2 and increases every 2 spins plus a locked wild in middle of reel 3.
Age of the Gods Prince of Olympus
Age of the Gods: Prince of Olympus replaces the Incredible Hulk with Hercules, the mythical strongman. It is a 25 line slot with RTP of 93.83% (excluding the jackpot). It has three bonus features. The Hydra bonus is triggered by hydra symbols on reels 1 & 5; fire arrows at the hydra heads for cash prizes and pick a head for a multiplier. The Herculean Strength feature is triggered when Hercules appears either on the centre of reel 3 (in which case he expands & awards 2 respins with the reel locked), or in any positions on reels 2,3, and 4 (in which case he expands to fill all three reels and awards 1 respin). There’s also a bonus round, triggered by 3+ scatters, of 10 free games with 3x multiplier.
Age of the Gods Goddess of Wisdom
Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom is yet another reskin and here Athena the goddess of wisdom replaces Elektra. This slot has 20 paylines and RTP of 94.87%. When the bonus round is triggered, players pick one of three high value symbols to enter one of the three bonus modes. All of these have expanding wilds and substituted symbols; they differ in the number of spins and the multiplier.
Age of the Gods Fate Sisters
Age of the Gods: Fate Sisters focuses on the three Fates – Lachesis, Clotho and Atropos and is a reskinned version of Iron Man 3. It has 25 lines and RTP of 92.95% (not including the jackpot). Each of the three sisters has her own bonus round and when the bonus is triggered, the player can choose the one they prefer 10 free spins with locking wilds, 8 free spins with random wilds or 15 free spins with dynamic multiplier.
Age of the Gods God of Storms
Age of the Gods: God of Storms is NOT based on any of the Marvel slots and has a different look and feel to earlier games in the series. It has 25 paylines (not all of which need be played) and RTP of 96.14% (including the jackpot). Age of the Gods God of Storms has two different Wild symbols, both of which are stacked and only appear on reels 2-4 – the regular wild and the Ship Wild. When a Ship Wild fills one of the reels it triggers the Wild Wind Respins bonus feature; the God of Storms appears to the right of the reels and blows the ship one reel to the left each respin, increasing the multiplier each time until it blows off the left hand edge.
Age of the Gods Medusa & Monsters
Age of the Gods: Medusa & Monsters is another game which is rather different to the other games in the series. It has an unusual arrangement of 6 reels some of which are 6 symbols high and some of which are 7 symbols high – with an impressive 164 paylines and a minimum spin value of 50p. The RTP is 96.09% (including the jackpot) and the game has all symbols stacked and an expanding wild symbol. Scatter symbols on reels 2,4, and 6 trigger the bonus round. Pick a shield to reveal which high paying symbol will be sticky and play the 6 free spins with a stacked walking Medusa wilds moving from reel 6 to reel 1.
Age of the Gods Ruler of the Sky
Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Sky is a 40 line slot whose big gimmick is the stacked Pegasus wilds – especially in the bonus round when more Pegasus symbols are added to the reels. The bonus round (triggered by scatter symbols on the middle three reels) is just 5 free spins but it can be retriggered indefinitely. The other claim to fame of this particular Age of the Gods game is that it has the worst RTP in the entire series – 91.04% including the jackpot.
Age of the Gods Roulette
Age of the Gods Roulette adds an AotG Bonus position to a regular roulette wheel. A player who bets on the Age of the Gods Bonus position of the wheel and wins, gets to play the bonus game (which comes in the form of a 3 reel slot machine) for a guaranteed win. Age of the Gods Roulette is part of the AotG progressive jackpot system and the jackpot game (the usual coin array) can be triggered randomly during any spin. The RTP of Age of the Gods Roulette is 95.73% and this compares well to other games where the wheel has 38 spaces but is worse than in European or French roulette.
Age of the Gods Non Progressive Jackpot Games
Age of the Gods King of the Underworld
Age of the Gods: King of the Underworld has RTP of 96.02%, arguably the highest of all the AotG games (God of Storms and Medusa & Monsters have a slightly higher overall RTP but this includes the 0.99% progressive jackpot contribution). It has 20 paylines, not all of which need be played, and the minimum stake is 1p per line. It has two bonus rounds (Gates of Hell and Thread of Fate) both of which are triggered by getting 3 or more of the corresponding symbol on a payline. Each of these bonus round consists of a series of pick-mes awarding cash prizes which are then multiplied by the number of lines played in the spin which triggered the bonus.
Age of the Gods Athena vs Ares
Athena vs Ares has a disappointingly low RTP of 92.03%. It has 25 paylines, not all of which need be played, and a minimum stake of 1p per line. It has an exploding reels game mechanic (similar to Avalanche in Gonzo’s Quest) and a bonus round where the player fights a duel with 1-3 opponents, collecting a multiplier for each defeated enemy.
Age of the Gods Lord of Lightning
Somewhat confusingly, Lord of Lightning DOES have a progressive jackpot, but it is separate to, smaller than and works differently to the usual one, instead resembling the jackpot attached to Virtue Fusion slots such as Clover Rollover. The jackpot is equally likely (or unlikely) to be won on any spin regardless of stake size (it is the prize for 5 Zeus symbols on a payline) but it pays out a percentage depending on stake. To win the full amount (£100,000+) requires playing £2 a line (so a spin value of £40 if all 20 lines are played) and at the minimum stake of 5p per line it would pay out just 2.5% of the headline amount.
Lord of Lightning has a straightforward free spins bonus round – 3 Pegasus scatters award 10 free spins, 4 award 20 and 5 award 30, and the spins are played with the number of paylines in the spin that initiated the bonus. The RTP net of the jackpot contribution (1%) is 93%.
Age of the Gods Bingo
Age of the Gods Bingo is a 90 ball bingo game played across the Virtue Fusion network, with a bonus round inspired by the Age of the Gods jackpot game.
Where To Play Age of the Gods Games
For the widest choice of Age of the Gods games, you’ll need to play somewhere you can access Virtue Fusion bingo and a Playtech casino with the same wallet and login – this could be at a site such as Buzz Bingo where there is an integrated casino tab or at a site such as Sky Bingo where the login is valid for other Sky products including Sky Casino.
