Rival just launched the new Coins of Olympus Slots, and after playing it for an hour, I would like to review it for our online US players. As you know, Rival Gaming often comes out with very unique games, most of which include interactive bonus rounds (which they are known for). While some of the reviews of this slot game have been less than ideal, I do recommend you play this game because it does have intrinsic value and interesting bonus features. Coins of Olympus video slots is available for you to play in all Rival casinos, all of which will provide you with great bonuses when you deposit and play with real money.
A 5-reel, 25 pay line bonus video slot, Coins of Olympus Slots features the gods on Mt. Olympus. Although I must say the cast of characters could have been designed better, this game will nonetheless attract first time slot players and most seasoned players. This is due to its coin denominations which begin at one penny and go up to 25 cents, for a max bet of $62.50 per spin. The jackpot is 4000 coins, although the highest jackpot, it is certainly worth the time spent to win it.
The Power of Zeus
The symbols in Coins of Olympus Slots feature the gods on Mt. Olympus as well as Pegasus. He is the key to the bonus round. In addition, there is a free spins round which can yield high payouts. Poseidon is the jackpot symbol. Get all five and you win the 4000-coin jackpot. The Silver Coin is the wild symbol and will expand to cover the entire reels. It will replace all other symbols to form winning combinations. Zeus is the bonus round symbol. Get three of the Zeus symbols to trigger an interactive bonus round featuring Pegasus. The Gold Coin symbol will activate the Free Spins Round.
Free Spins Round
Get three Gold Coin symbols and the win 5 free spins; get four Gold Coin symbols and win 10 free spins; and get 5 Gold Coin symbols to win 20 free spins. All wins are multiplied by 3xs. I won 10 free spins with a 180-coin payout. Not great!
Zeus' Bonus Round
This is an interesting bonus game in which getting three Zeus symbols activates an interactive round. In it, you will witness a conversation between Zeus and Pegasus in which an earthquake on Mt. Olympus is making all the coins fall to earth. Pegasus tells Zeus that he will retrieve the gold coins. And then the round begins. Using your cursor, you will have to raise and lower Pegasus to catch as many gold coins as you can. I caught 21 coins and won 8000 coins. (This is on a max bet of $62.50). Once the round is over, your prize is awarded.
Play Coins of Olympus Slots
Any slot game that allows me to play some role in the bonus round is a really good slot game. But, in the case of Coins of Olympus (although I did enjoy the bonus round and the free spins round), there is something lacking. Perhaps it is in the design, which I find disappointing since Rival usually comes out with the most unusual slot games. But frankly, for $62.50 a pop or less, you can still enjoy playing Coins of Olympus Slots at our featured casino. Perhaps, it will bring back memories of the cult TV series Xena: The Warrior Princess.
