The Golden Owl of Athena online slot is not based on a myth. Owls were sacred in ancient Athens and there were even coins with stone owls embossed on them. For publisher Betsoft, this is reason enough to forge a nicely polished slot from it, which has a lot to offer with scatter and wild symbols as well as a fate-challenging risk game. The Golden Owl of Athena also works smoothly on smartphones and tablets with adapted controls.
The golden owl is of course the main feature of the slot and can activate several features at once. Wherever it appears, it brings knowledge and wisdom, therefore acts as a scatter symbol and is not tied to paylines when scoring. At the same time, she is also a wild symbol, which – should this be necessary – can substitute for other symbols and thus complete winning combinations. Last but not least, at least three of the wise owls will trigger the free spins feature, with 3 owls bringing 8 free spins, 4 owls bringing 12 free spins and 5 owls bringing 20 free spins.
Before it starts, a symbol is randomly selected to be a bonus symbol during the free spins mode. If it appears on the reels, surrounding symbols are also converted into the bonus symbol and can fill entire reels. With more owls, the free spins mode can be extended at will. The symbol drawn for the first time always remains the same.
Double Up is the risk game of The Golden Owl of Athena slot machine. Either the entire win or only half of it can be bet. To start the game, click on one of the “Heads” or “Tails” buttons for your prediction. Up to a certain limit, you can bet as often as you like or collect your winnings with Collect. However, if you fail, the game is over and you lose the bet amount.
With the Buy feature it is possible to buy free spins. The amount needed for this depends on the bet as well as the winning statistics. If you decide to do so, 20 free spins are started with the current bet.
