Today, the gods of ancient Greece are considered nothing more than interesting fictional characters. Many centuries ago, however, they were viewed as legitimate deities and worshipped as such.

The Greek Gods pokie from Pragmatic Play takes a look back at these entities in their prime. It features 243 ways to win, and has a number of interesting features. If you’d like to know more, check out the following review.

Where to Play Greek Gods

This virtual poker machine is located at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. For Aussies, options include 7 Reels Casino, Tangiers Casino, Winward Casino, and Rich Casino. Of the previous list, Winward Casino is my favourite, but that’s just a matter of opinion. Feel free to try them all and select the one you feel most comfortable with.

Greek Gods Paytable

This is a complete list of the various payouts available for the Greek Gods pokie. In the list below, we’re assuming the player is making the maximum wager of $250 per spin.

  • Jack and Ten – Each of these poker symbols offer the same payout on a winning line. These include $50 for three matches, $150 for four, and $500 for five.
  • King and Queen – When part of a winning line, these symbols pay $50 for three matches, $200 for four, and $500 for five.
  • Ace – The highest poker card on the reels, it pays $50 for three matches, $250 for four, and $500 for five.
  • Chalice – Used by the gods to drink ambrosia, this ornate vessel pays $100 for three matches, $300 for four, and $750 for five.
  • Lyre – The lyre is a stringed instrument commonly used during Greek antiquity. It pays $100 for three matches, $400 for four, and $1000 for five.
  • Aphrodite – She is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure. When this beautiful blonde makes up a winning line, she pays $200 for three, $500 for four, and $1250 for five.
  • Zeus – The ruler of the Greek pantheon and god of lightning, Zeus pays $250 for three, $600 for four, and $1500 for five.
  • Wild – This icon is clearly labelled “Wild.” It appears on all reels and substitutes for all symbols (except the scatter).
  • Scatter – This icon is represented by a blue bolt of lightning. It appears on reels three through five during the base game. During the Free Spins round, it appears on all reels. When five of these symbols appear at the same time, the Free Spins feature is activated.

Random Awards

During the base game, you’ll notice that various rewards appear above reels three through five. When you get a vertical stack of scatter symbols on one of these reels, you’ll win the corresponding prize. During the Free Spins phases, these bonuses appear above all reels.

Rewards include the following:

  • The Free Spin feature is automatically triggered.
  • A prize is awarded up to 50x the player’s wager.
  • The Wheel of Fortune bonus is activated.

Free Spins

When activated, this feature awards the player with three free spins, plus a spin for each scatter symbol that triggered it. If activated by the random award above the reels, it awards eight spins in the base game and five during the bonus feature.

Wheel of Fortune

This feature is available during the Free Spins phase. When activated, it awards the player with a cash prize worth anywhere from 10x to 1000x the total bet.

Return to Player

The RTP (or “return to player”) is the long-term expected payback for a pokie. For example, if you wager $100 on a poker machine with an RTP of 95%, then you should expect to get back $95 (on average).

The RTP for Greek Gods is 96.5%. This is average for an online pokie, but it’s higher than most land-based games.

Final Thoughts

I like the multiple ways to win on the Greek Gods pokie, and I’ve always had an interest in the subject matter. I’ve never considered myself a high roller, so the betting range is also fine with me. It looks like Pragmatic Play has another hit on their hands.
