In this new casino slot from NetEnt, we head to ancient Greece in a quest for immortality. It's a slot that is a sequel to their previous Pyramid: Quest for Immortality that certainly offered a lot of entertaining spins. This time the slot is located within the Parthenon, which is a very powerful temple that the Greeks created and dedicated to the goddess Athena.
This time, together with a gang of fearless warriors, we will fight the evil Medusa in an intense battle. Medusa, who was originally a completely normal woman, was transformed by Athena in order to destroy Poseidon. This transformation resulted in Medusa's hair turning into meandering snakes and everyone who happened to look her in the eye then turned to stone. It is certainly not an easy task for these warriors to defeat Medusa, but those who succeed can be richly rewarded.
Parthenon: Quest for Immortality is an online slot from Netent that has 6 reels and a rows setup of 4-5-5-5-5-4. There are a total of 10,000 bet ways during the spins that make it possible to create a large variety of winning combinations. You can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 200. The game's RTP is 95.96% and when it comes to the game's volatility and max win, NetEnt has not yet announced what these are. As soon as we find out about these two, we will update this text, but until then we will leave it a mystery.
During this spinning experience, you can take part in a variety of features. The features available are Cascade, Wild Symbol, Wild Generation Zone, Free Spins and Free Spins Multiplier. Let's find out what symbols you can expect to see during the spins.
The design of the game is a Greek theme, when we are located at the mighty Parthenon temple in Athens. As soon as you start this game, you are immediately greeted by a very atmospheric and powerful music, where it is a bit reminiscent of the tones from the movie Gladiator. You create a winning combination by landing 3 or more of the same symbol type on adjacent reels, starting at the far left.
The lower paying symbols are 10, J, Q, K and A. The higher paying symbols are Poseidon's trident, a snake, the flying horse Pegasus, a ship and Medusa. Medusa is the only symbol that pays already when 2 symbols are on adjacent reels and if you manage to land 6 symbols it gives 40X the bet. The second highest paying symbol, the ship, only gives 2.5X the bet on 6 landed symbols, so it is certainly Medusa you have to land to be able to take part in the really big wins. The game's Wild symbol consists of a flame with the text Wild on it. To take part in the game's Free Spins, you need to land 3 or more of the game's scatter symbols. This scatter symbol consists of a gold decorated symbol with the text Free Spins written in Greek style. Let's find out what the features do.
In the slot Parthenon: Quest for Immortality, you can take part in a really thrilling gaming experience. The features that you can take part in are Cascade, Wild Symbol, Wild Generation Zone, Free Spins and Free Spins Multiplier.
When you spin the reels and create a winning combination, the Cascade feature is activated. Then all symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reel and then new symbols will fall down to cover these empty positions. This lasts as long as new winning combinations are created.
This symbol is really the star of the game as it will be of great help to you in the hunt for the big wins. The Wild Symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for all other symbols except for the scatter symbol.
The top four positions on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 are the game's Wild Generation Zone. If you create a winning combination where any of these positions are included, the symbol or symbols there will be transformed into Wild Symbols for the upcoming Cascade.
If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, you activate the Free Spins feature. Depending on how many you landed results in different number of free spins that you get to receive. The first 3 scatter symbols give you 8 free spins and for every extra you get in addition; you get 4 extra free spins. Once you start spinning the reels within this feature, you can succeed in getting even more free spins. If you land 3 scatter symbols you get 2 extra free spins.
When you spin the reels within the Free Spins feature, you will start with a 1X multiplier. Each time you succeed in creating a new Wild symbol, this multiplier will increase by 1, where it can be a maximum of 20X. Each time you get a winning combination, the current multiplier will be applied to the win.
This is a slot that tends to start very slowly and when we tested the game it took a lot of spins before we even landed a win. But suddenly everything changed, we managed to create a Wild through the Wild Generation Zone and then the snowball was rolling. Since the Cascading feature is activated in winning combinations, new symbols fell down, which the newly created wild got the chance to participate in. During this feature, new winning combinations were also created, which resulted in even more Wilds. It's really the Wilds that make this game go around and if you manage to activate the Free Spins feature everything gets even more exciting. Since each new wild that is created results in a Win multiplier increasing by 1, where 20X is the highest possible value it can get.
It really is a typical characteristic that slots from NetEnt have, where it can take a very long time before something happens. But the patient soul can eventually be richly rewarded, no guts no glory, no legend no story so to say. If you are a fan of these risky slots from NetEnt, this will really suit you well.
NetEnt once again proves how skilled they are with every part in the slot creation, where entertaining features are mixed with great design and a phenomenal music in the background.
