About the Slot War of Gods
Zeus and Hades is a fable about two brothers who are also Gods. In Greek mythology, Zeus governs over the Gods from his throne atop Mount Olympus, while Hades rules over the underworld. Hades is envious of his brother’s power and wishes to depose him. This rivalry is shown in War of Gods, which takes us to the gates of Zeus’ palace, where Hades is set to erupt once again!
In order to win, both of our Gods require allies, and both will reward the players of this position for their devotion. The majestic palace held by two giants can be seen in the backdrop, and terrifying hellfire can be seen underneath it. The game’s idea is to use symbol upgrades and extending reels to increase your chances of winning.
There are a number of Ancient Greek-themed slots out there, including Playtech’s Age of Gods series, so Red Tiger is up against some stiff competition, but War of Gods holds its own, as we’ll see.
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
The winnings are very equally spread in this high volatility slot game, and there are enough elements to keep things interesting throughout. The main game starts with 30 paylines, but as the reels extend, the number of paylines increases to 60. The RTP is just below average at 95.66 percent, and the highest reward is a modest 2,518x wager in a single spin — not bad, but nowhere like the monster jackpots that upcoming high volatility slots like San Quentin xWays might possibly provide.
Paytable and Symbols
The card suits, spades, clubs, diamonds, and hearts, are used to symbolize low value symbols in War of Gods. A warrior helmet, spear, and shield, a horn with a skull on it, and a scroll with some writing on it are higher value icons. The two deities, who both act as scatters and trigger the three bonus features as well as earning 10x bet for the maximum combination, are the highest paying icons. In this game, there are no Wilds.
Features and Gameplay
Although there are no free spins available in War of Gods, there is plenty to keep you entertained, as well as a slew of regular extras that supplement the core action. Here’s how it works:
Wrath of Zeus Feature
The Wrath of Zeus feature is triggered when two Zeus symbols appear on reels 1 and 5 at the same time. Zeus symbols will expand and fill two reels in this game… Only Shield and Zeus icons will show on the reels during the re-spins feature.
You’ll receive extra re-spins as long as you keep landing fresh Zeus symbols.
If you land shields on the reels, the value of Zeus symbols will increase as well, as indicated by a shift in hue. Up to three of these upgrades can happen at simultaneously, but the feature ends when no new Zeus symbols show on the reels.
Hades Hellfire Feature
The Hades Hellfire function works in the same way as Wrath of Zeus does.
When two Hades symbols appear on reels 1 and 5, they will lock and grow to fill all of the spaces on those reels. Only shields and Hades icons will emerge on the remaining reels once again.
You may also increase the amount of active paylines available by expanding the reels to a 7×6 grid by landing unique shields during this round. This can result in as many as 60 paylines.
When no more Hades or shield symbols appear on the reels, the feature expires.
Warring Gods Feature
This last feature combines the previous two and is triggered when Zeus and Hades appear on reels 1 and 5 at the same time. When the two gods land, they lock and grow once again. With a 7×6 grid, the number of paylines may be increased to 60. It is possible to make 7 Zeus of Hades lines for a 100x payoff.
In War of Gods, Red Tiger has nailed it with the sights and music to create a gorgeous and epic environment. There’s a sense of tension between the two gods that makes this a fun game to play. The gameplay is enjoyable, albeit not as action-packed as some of the other games now available. Everything else — growing reels, further locked symbols, and re-spins – is triggered by locked and extended Zeus and Hades symbols. Despite the lower-than-average top potential, the medium variance means you won’t have to wait long for payouts, and despite the lower-than-average top potential, this game will appeal to a wide audience and make for a fascinating game to play in 2022.
