Age of the Gods: Furious Four Slot
The Age of the Gods: Furious Four is one of a trio of Age of Gods slots developed by Playtech that melds the mythology of Ancient Greek gods and goddesses with classic video slot gaming, lots of bonus free spins action and a cheeky progressive jackpot feature to top things off.
Starting with its basegame, Age of Gods: Furious Four slot (which we’ll call Furious Four from hereon) sets its Ancient Grecian action on five reels traversed by twenty paylines. Unlike the original Age of Gods slot, the paylines activated per spin can be freely chosen between one and twenty, so betting can begin from as little as £0.01 per game, stepping through lots of options up to Herculean £500 stake.
The Furious 4 symbol plays as Wild on these reels, whilst also commanding a rather eye-catching jackpot of 10,000x your linebet if five land on an active payline. The other feature symbol that you’ll be praying for to fuel a furious response from this slot is its Golden Throne Scatter.
Three or more not only triggers a basegame pay, but also unleashes the might and the fury of this Age of the Gods slot’s free spins bonus feature.
Before any fury is vented on this bonus, there’s the gift of twelve free spins to savour, with the four gods, Hephaestus, Apollo, Pandora and Atlas, riding the third reel as stacked symbols. Their divine presence on the middle reel is this slot’s key to further free spins with enhanced features. Each god has their own unique gift to bestow should they dominate the middle reel following a ‘standard’ free spin. These are:
The Age of Light Feature: This is Apollo’s gift, with four additional free spins during which Apollo’s symbol becomes not only Wild, but also expands to fill entire reels when they land.
The Age of Curiosity Feature: Pandora’s present is both an instant cash prize and a run of four additional free spins. The total win accumulated during these spins is boosted by a multiplier that starts at x1 and grows in value for each instance of Pandora that graces your view.
The Age of Fire Feature: It’s Hephaestus’s fury that rains down on these four additional free spins, with the divine blacksmith locked as a fully stacked presence on reel 1, and extra instances of his single space symbol riding all other reels.
The Age of Endurance Feature: Here the world-shouldering Atlas makes his presence felt across his four free spins by playing as a Sticky Wild, locking in place and substituting for all but the standard Wild and Scatter symbols when he appears.
Like Age of Gods Slot before it, the Furious Four version taps the same random progressive jackpot prize as a final treat. Our other review covers the essentials of that feature, but for now let’s just say it adds yet another powerful attraction for players.
Furious 4 isn’t radically different from its sibling Age of Gods slots, but the subtle differences in its free spins bonus feature adds sufficient twists to please us. Despite its title, this slot is far from infuriating and if you’ve already been won over by any of the other Age of Gods slots, this version will surely answer your prayers for further divine intervention.
