The soundtrack is fitted for the theme as consists of mysterious music that reminds of something wonderful.
The gorgeous background is accompanied by some interesting symbols. Instead of the royals, there are letters from the Greek alphabet: Alpha, Beta, Zeta, and Omega. Then there are Achilles, Paris and Helen who were all an important part of Greek history. The game also has a wild symbol and a scatter represented by a golden shield with a horse.
The payouts are quite decent as well. Players have the chance to win up to 607,5x the stake in a single spin.

This is a medium volatility slot with an RTP set at an average 96,5%.

First is the Helen Re-spin Bonus feature that is triggered when the player lands 2 or more fully stacked Helen symbols on the reels. The player then gets 3 re-spins with the triggering symbols locked in place. Every Helen symbol that lands during the round gets locked in and resets the re-spins to 3.
Then there is the Paris Re-spins Bonus feature that is triggered by 2 or more Paris symbols appearing stacked on the reels. The player gets 2 re-spins that are reset every time Paris appears on the reels. The goal of this feature is to form a block of 3 or more Paris symbols to activate the special Mega Reel which will award the player with amazing prizes.
There is also, of course, the Achilles Re-spin Bonus feature that is triggered with 2 or more Achilles symbols appearing fully stacked on the reels. The player gets one re-spin with the reels locked in and turned wild.
