Athena Ascending Slot Machine
How to play Athena Ascending slot?
The Athena Ascending slot machine from provider Play’n GO is located inside a bright white residence decorated with skill and parsimony. Inside, you play with helmets, ancient urns, scrolls, the goddess Athena, and an owl. By strategically placing these symbols on the 5-reel, 3-row grid, you can generate free spins, which are usually associated with a win that can be up to 500 times the initial bet. The maximum potential win is equal to 10,000 times the bet.
Admire a magnificent Greek villa and its garden
This slot machine takes place in the luxurious garden of a lovely little villa in ancient Greece. It cannot be confirmed that it is the property of Athena, as the title of the slot suggests, but this would not be surprising given the floral decoration that harmoniously contrasts with the dazzling white of the Greek villa. And that's not all. In Athena Ascending, time is alive. This means that you will see the colors of the landscape change as time goes on. In this vein, the sky turns a dark red at nightfall. Similarly, the darkness that settles in brings the residents of the brightly lit palace to light fires on two platforms placed at each end at the top of the stairs leading to the white villa.
At the foot of the stairs, a game board stands with elegance. The frame is golden like Greek noble jewels, and the background of the grid is dark blue. Majestic gold finishes are also visible towards the bottom of the board. Inside this board, you will find J, K, Q, 10, A, 9, in elegant calligraphy, as well as a Pegasus, an owl, a Spartan helmet, a scroll, and an ancient urn. The Scatter is represented by the owl and Athena. It is different from the game's Wild.
Enticing free spins and multipliers, with up to 10,000 times the original bet up for grabs
The game board of Athena Ascending features a grid of 5 reels divided into 3 rows with 20 paylines. The high volatility is accompanied by a payout rate that can vary between 94.20%, 96.20%, 84.20%, 87.20%, and 91.20%. However, this does not detract from the game's appeal, as the maximum possible payout is 10,000 times the initial bet. And you can try your luck as long as your bet falls within the range of 0.05 to 100 euros per spin.
In Athena Ascending, the Wild can only appear in 3 columns. These are columns 2, 3, and 4. It can appear with a multiplier of 1x, 2x, 3x, or 4x. When this happens, all wins involving the multiplier Wild benefit from the exponential increase in their value. Multiplier Wilds can also merge, meaning the multipliers multiply each other. However, the final multiplier cannot exceed 64x.
For its part, the Scatter is invited to prioritize all the columns of the grid. Therefore, you win 5 free spins and a reward equal to a multiple of your winnings. So, for 3 Scatters you win 5 free spins and 1 times the bet; for 4 Scatters you win 5 free spins and 20 times the bet; for 5 Scatters, you win 5 free spins and 500 times the initial bet. During the free spins, the Wild falls on the grid, and stays stuck until its multiplier reaches 4 times the bet. What happens is that with each spin, the multiplier gains 1 point, and in the end it falls off the grid. This does not mean that everything is over. In fact, this feature does not stop spinning as long as a Wild is visible on the game grid.
