If you like your pokies with a side order of classical mythology or you loved the Kate O’Hearn book, then Flame of Olympus from Aristocrat is tailor made for you. Based on the myth of the benevolent titan who stole fire from the Gods so that mankind could prosper, this 5x3 grid pokie with 20 active paylines delivers plenty of fire when you land the right combination of sysmbols on the reels. So is Flame of Olympus as Promethean as the character who dominates the reels? Read our full review below.
The reels are framed by two large Doric columns, familiar to all lovers of Greek architecture, and packed with symbols that allude to Greek myth including a temple, a goddess and the fire that Prometheus stole to aid mankind. These higher paytable symbols pay out up to 750x your original stake when you land 5 on an active payline. All the higher paytable symbols feature in Kate O’Hearn’s best selling book.
If you’re playing this on a fast desktop, the opening game screen with a massive golden statue of Prometheus is definitely impressive. But you won’t lose out if you choose to go mobile and play on a tablet or smartphone, as Aristocrat's Flame of Olympus has been optimised for all iOS and Android devices.
With the opportunity to land a staggering 9,000x multiplier, this is a game for the high rollers out there but there’s plenty to enjoy for all levels of interest. And, of course, the larger the initial stake, the bigger the prize when you’re playing in multipliers.
Flame of Olympus is totally classic in one way and that’s its base gameplay. There is no bonus feature, so what you see - and win - is what you get, but if the symbols fall kindly for you there are plenty of rich rewards to be had.
The Prometheus symbol is the wild card, substituting for the other paytable symbols to create winning combinations. These Prometheus combinations can be extremely valuable with the right blend of symbols scoring you an incredible 9,000x prize for a five of a kind combination on an active payline.
Coins of Fortune
The coins are the scatter symbols, and as their name suggests, they don’t have to be lined up on the reels to trigger a win. 3 or more coins will trigger a 15 free spin bonus with a rather tasty 3x multiplier added to each and every win.
Again, the gameplay is absolutely classic with all the opportunities for the biggest wins coming from the two special symbols.
Flame on or Cold Ashes?
Flames of Olympus is a clever pokie that combines classical mythology with classical gameplay to create a decent modern game that you can play anywhere, thanks to smartphone and tablet optimisation. The rewards can be great and the bonus symbols carry rich rewards, but if you like inventive bonus games, then Flames of Olympus will disappoint.
However, there’s plenty of decent things to enjoy in the free games and the Promethean combinations and it’s very well executed, making it a classic pokie for your collection.
