Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom, handicraft and war and was considered to be the protectress of cities across Greece, and in particular Athens. This Konami designed pokie features Athena as the highest paying symbol. She appears on the pokie reels alongside a sword, a horn, a silver shield, a snake bracelet and an owl.
Destiny of Athena is an interesting slot game, due to the unusual activation of the main feature. Win multipliers make this worth triggering. Here’s a look at the main features of this bright medium variant pokie:
The owl stands out from the other symbols. This appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Its flapping wings make it the largest symbol on the reels. Strangely for a scatter symbol, the owl also acts as a wild (alongside the other wild symbol), making it that little bit more valuable.
Having landed owl symbols on each of the three reels, you’ll now activate the free spins feature. You’ll now get to select one of the three owls and uncover one of the following two bonus features:
It’s pretty clear which of the features you’ll want to land from the two options above – the ‘Super Free Games’ option almost a license to print money.
You can retrigger this feature at any time too. If you retrigger during the standard ‘free games’ you’ll head back to the selection part of the feature, with the possibility of moving up to ‘super free games’. A retrigger during the ‘super free games’ will see 8 more spins added to your existing total of super spins.
This Konami designed pokie features Action Stacked Symbols, which promises action on every spin. On the reels you’ll find a large number of adjacent symbols reserved for these Action Stacks, and all of those reserved positions will now be filled one individual symbol. This is chosen at random from all of the symbols in the game apart from the scatter and the wild.
You will now find spins where the chosen symbol is dominant, with the potential to fill many positions on the reels. Line up those full stacks and you could win across many of the 30 win-lines.
Destiny of Athena is a pokie with a 5×3 reel set up, featuring 30 win-lines that pay from left to right. The cost of each spin is 45 credits – 30 credits for the win-lines and 15 credits for the added features.
Athena herself is the highest paying symbol, worth 125 coins for the maximum five in a row. This game is unusual due to all of the themed symbols paying out for 2, 3, 4 or 5 in a row, making for more regular smaller wins. The pay table is completed by the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which pay out for 3, 4 or 5 in a row.
Athena might be the goddess of handicraft and wisdom too – but being the goddess of war is the focus for this design. The backdrop shows an ancient Greek bridge, while clouds of dust are everywhere, and chaos seems to be reigning in the scene.
The reels themselves have a dark blue/purple design, while both the owl and Athena are the standout symbols – the owl looking mightily impressive when extending its wings, while the beautiful Athena shines when smiling on the reels. Enter the free spins feature and you’ll enjoy a resounding soundtrack to go alongside the action.
Destiny of Athena is an enjoyable pokie with an added level of excitement. The base game is fast paced and offers regular wins – due to both the Action Stacked symbols and those regular smaller pay outs. The best part of the game is certainly the feature. Activate it and you’ve got that high-tension moment of picking which of the free spins options you’ll have. Land the ‘Super’ option and you’ll feel like a God/Goddess yourself!
