Ancient Greece was a fascinating and enticing place. Spanning over 1000 years from about the 12th century BCE to the Roman era, the Greeks gave us much more than we imagine.
Things we take for granted today, like the arts, sports and the Olympics, medicine, law, democracy, language, science, mathematics, philosophy, architecture, and the theatre, we owe it all to Ancient Greece.
What’s more, their stories have gone down as some of the best ever told. We all know about the twelve trials of Hercules, Theseus and the Minotaur, Icarus flying too close to the sun, Medusa’s head of snakes, Pegasus the winged horse, King Midas and his golden touch, or Achilles and the Trojan Horse. The list just goes on and on. Greek stories have become part of our social make-up.
That’s why they’re so popular when people are looking for new online slots games to play. Slot games on online casinos are entertaining and popular, so when mixed with a fantastical theme like Ancient Greece and all its wonderful stories, it’s really not a surprise why it’s one of the best-loved slots themes.
But which Greece related online slots are some of the best out there?
Fortunes of Sparta
Based on the famous battle of Sparta, Fortunes of Sparta is a game designed and produced by Blueprint Gaming on 5 reels and 25 pay-lines.
Bets range from 25p to £25 a spin, as well as a really generous RTP percentage, which at 97.04% is comfortably on the positive side of average. The game has a rather high volatility too, and with the way features work, sessions can very much be all or nothing.
There is also a Spartan Spins feature too, triggered when you get three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. Three bonus symbols win you eight free spins, four get you ten free spins, five win you twelve free spins, six get you 15 free spins, seven give you 20 free spins, either eight or nine will win you 50 free spins, and ten or more get you a staggering 100 free spins.
Achilles is a highly popular 5-reel and 20-payline progressive slot title produced by Real Time Gaming. It’s been around since 2006 so it’s stood the test of time just like the Greek tale. The game’s scattered is the Troy symbol, while the wild icon is Achilles.
As it’s a progressive jackpot, the RTP percentage is a little lower at 95% but there’s always the possibility of a life-changing win. What’s more, gamers can win up to 50,000x the bet per line in a single spin. Achilles is the symbol that pays the most, offering 10,000 coins for five of a kind.
Coins of Olympus
Coins Of Olympus is a 5-reel slot with three rows and up to 25 pay-lines. The wild symbol is a silver coin and the two scatter symbols are Zeus and a golden coin which activate their respective bonus games.
Landing three or more of the golden coins will reward you with the following:
Three coins – 5 free spins
Four coins – 10 free spins
Five coins – 20 free spins
It’s a really decent slot title with the Ancient Greek theme, but perhaps the only disadvantage for the players is the relatively low RTP percentage, which stands at 92.49%.
