Rise Of Athena Slot Review – Play’n Go

Play’n Go is already back with more slot announcements for the upcoming months. I just reviewed the game ‘Holiday Spirits‘, which looks to be the studio’s special festive-themed released for 2020. Today we learn all about a brand new November release. Which is titled ‘Rise Of Athena‘, which is set to release November 12th across all sites.

Rise Of Athena Slot Review Play'n Go Casino Visuals Base Game Symbols Pay Table

This slot has a theme based on Greek mythology, in particular, Athena the Goddess of war and daughter of Zeus. The slot background looks to be set in a pillared structure in ancient Greece. With gold details to be seen on this structure, there is also gold seen on the reel border and within the various symbol designs. The real colours can be seen within premium symbols and Athena herself as the highest on the paytable. I like the simplistic visual design for this game and think to Play’n Go has done a great job this time.

Rise Of Athena has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 10 set pay lines. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96.2% and max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.

Rise Of Athena Pay Table & Symbols

There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, K, Q, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by scrolls, pots, helmets, pegasuses, and Athena. In addition to these regular symbols is a scatter symbol and wild which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. Wilds appearing on reels 2, 3, and 4 with multipliers of 1x, 2x, or 3x. Multipliers accumulate when 1+ wilds are on the reel set, with a max multiplier of 27x.

Rise Of Athena Features

Landing 3 or more scatter symbols during one base game spin will trigger the Free Spins Feature. Awarding 12 free spins, during spins wilds are sticky until their multiplier runs out. The multiplier on each wild reduces by 1x on each free spin. Once the multiplier has been used up the wild symbol is removed from the reel set. Additional free spins cannot be awarded and the scatter symbol does not appear on the reel set.


Overall, I think Play’n Go has created a very simple slot release which I think the casino community will enjoy. With sticky wild multipliers in the free spins feature for a high variance. Plus a max win of 5,000x and multipliers up to 27x. Be sure to try out the slot for yourself on release. Also, be sure to check out our exclusive casino offers.
