Microgaming Greek Mythology Online Pokies
September 9, 2016
Online pokies with the theme of Greek mythology are very popular and abound. Yet more keep coming as the releases in 2016 show. If you are conversant with the theme you would enjoy the online pokies a bit more. This article picks four gems from the Microgaming portfolio live at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas.
Stash of the Titans is named after the Greek mythology Hollywood blockbuster Clash of the Titans. It features iconic symbols like Cerberus the 3-headed dog, Pegasus the flying horse with Perseus atop, the half lion and half eagle Griffin and Medusa the Gorgon. There are no playing card icons and the lower strata of creatures from Greek mythology like satyrs and cyclops award the lower payouts. Bold bright symbols and amusing win animations add to the delight. Medusa triggers the free spins round in which you get 15 free spins with 4x payout multiplier.
Jason and the Golden Fleece is based on one epic saga from Greek mythology, which is the journey of the Argonauts. The online pokie names the characters in various symbols to help players get a feel of the theme. The symbols include characters and places from the fantastic tale including the protagonists Jason and Medea. The game logo is the wild and triggers the free spins. The bonus trail is activated by the Golden Fleece symbol. You play six different types of bonus games in sequence, each associated with one of the stops of the Argonauts.
Hot as Hades presents the Greek deities in a comical manner in 3D representations. Hades sports flaming hair and a cheeky grin. Medusa is decidedly winsome and Cerberus is like a cute puppy. Only Zeus maintains his sombre look. The super mode free spins feature is triggered at random and awards 5 free spins with three held wilds at a 2x multiplier. The Quest for the Crystal Helm is a bonus trail but based on fictional events. Hades encounters various impediments in his search for the Crystal helm that you help him to overcome.
Titans of the Sun is an online pokies pair. The individual games feature Hyperion and Theia, who are the parents of the Sun according to Greek mythology. Both online pokies include a Mystery Symbol that appears stacked in both the base game and in the free spins. In the base game it can turn into any paying symbol and in the free spins it can also be converted into the wild symbol.
