OK, we need an entry in the Ancient Greece category for our mobile slots line-up. Round up a few of the popular Greek creations and a gladiator and add shard-edge fonts to make it look old. Call it Myth and you are ready to go. And that is the playbook Play’n Go followed.
This is a five-reel slots with 20 paylines. There is no progressive jackpot but Myth does offer in-game awards up to 5000 coins. You can wager up to five coins on any payline.
The mythologies tapped in Myth are those of ancient Greece and the theme is battle, not exploitation of riches. So Playn’ Go has recruited many of the best monstrous figures for participation: the Harpies and Hydras, Cyclopses and Grogons of the underworld. Leonidas, king of Sparta, has shown up alone to take on the assignment of clearing these undesirables out of Athens. That may take some doing. The drama plays out inside a classical Greek temple. A relatively slim house edge keeps the action thumping along with the beat of the score, although as a lessee to other casinos the stated rate may vary from Play’n Go’s with actual play.
All of the game play in Myth stays inside the temple as there are no bonus games to seek out from the reels. Leonidas the Gladiator, clothed in full battle regalia, is the Wild and he will take the place of any of the symbols he vanquishes to help form winning combinations. When this happens it also doubles up your prize. The Gladiator also delivers that top jackpot of 5000 coins when he spreads five times across a payline.
The payoff in Myth really begins when the Golden Urn begins to intrude on the struggle between Gladiator and Monsters. The Golden Urn is the Scatter and it triggers 15 Free Spins when it shows up three or more times on the reels. All wins are tripled during the free games and the Gladiator has not been stripped of his power to double wins so you can collect coins up to 6X your stake. The Free Spins can be re-triggered up to 60 spins gratis.
The Greeks loved a little action on the side so a Gamble feature is included in Myth. You can double or quadruple your most recent wins on the turn of a card and you can do so five times in succession until you either win 1,500 coins or tap out totally – no doubt to the glee of this motley crew of Greek monsters.
