Remember the tale of Odysseus? Now that grand tale is in slot format. Playson has decided to go with a background of a stormy ocean, on which a ship with red sails is trying to reach its destination. Set in ancient Greece, the game has icons reflecting the time of this ancient explorer. You'll see shields, helmets, vases, and soldiers, to name a few. A ship carries the slot's five reels and 30 paylines, and it also comes with special symbols such as Scatters and Wilds, as well as a bonus game in the form of Free Spins.
The bet is easily adjusted between £0.30 and £90. Either click on the blue button with your total bet on it or use the arrows pointing up or down. After your stake is set, just put the reels spinning with the orange button, or by the use of the autoplay option.
In the background, there's a funny soundtrack playing. It has a bit of a silly cartoony feel to it, which lightens the intensity of the gameplay. The slot comes with an array of symbols, that can be linked to ancient Greece. These icons consist of imagery such as a helmet, the Trojan Horse, a warrior, Odysseus, a shield, a lyre, a vase, a copper coin and a crown.
To activate a payline, you will have to get three or more matching symbols onto adjacent reels. Remember, the higher the stake, the larger the payout, be responsible and play within your budget.
Out of all the symbols the game harbour it's vital that you keep a lookout for Odysseus, the Wild ship and the Scatter statue of Athena. Odysseus is the most lucrative symbol out of the main symbols, while the Wild and Scatter are special symbols.
The Wild is a ship out at sea, with a red and white sail. This icon substitutes for all other symbols, except the Scatter. The Scatter is a statue of Athena, and she is the key to unlocking the Free Spins
To unlock Athena's Free Spins, you will need to get at least three Scatter symbols onto the reels. Once this is successful, the Free Spin game will start. For 3, 4, or 5 Scatters on the reels; you get 10, 25, or 100 Free Spins respectively.
During the Free Spins, it's possible to trigger more spins by landing more Scatters onto the reels. Just make sure you get at least three of them anywhere on the reels.
The bet lines pay only if the icons settle onto the reels from left to right reel. Only the highest win from each payline is paid out.
Odysseus is mobile compatible, which means that you can set the reels spinning no matter where you are. All you have to take into consideration is that you have a good, secure internet connection. As long as your device runs on an Android, iOS, or Windows operating system, it doesn't matter if the reels spin on a smartphone or a tablet.
The game is a medium variance slot, which offers its lucky players many small wins, and a few bigger wins. This, in turn, will make the game that more interesting, because you just don't know when the next big win will come your way! You can play Odysseus on any device you find convenient to use for the moment. You can also try the game out for free.
If you want to hit big, you should definitely try to get those Free Spins unlocked, as that's where the money can be found. So step right into an ancient world and get rich while exploring it!
