Legends of Olympia Online Slot Machine Review
This slot has a unique theme, going back in history to the creation of the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece. It is not the most attractive of Saucify slots to look at, though does have some interesting features which make it worth a try. Unusually, there are expanding wilds in this game. These are on reels 2 and 4, and cover all 3 rows. When you get both of these together, you will often make some significant wins. Combine this with a free spins game with multipliers and you’ll soon see that there are some good reasons to look past the plain graphics and clumsy animations.
Medals and people playing the original sports feature heavily in the design. There is a discus thrower, lady with a spear, boxer and runner. There are also some random symbols like the gourd and view of a corner of the original Olympic stadium. There is a brass-led tune playing in the background on a continual loop, and other tunes for wins which sound more computer generated than authentic. When you hit wins, the symbols come to life, with the first symbols expanding. Some of these are reasonably good, though others are quite basic by today’s standards. With 50 win lines, the game takes a long time to cycle through the win lines (animating each win in turn). When you are playing manually you can hit the spin button to move on. If you are using auto-play, this slot resolution of wins becomes more of an issue.
In addition to the expanding wilds, there is a free spins bonus round. You can start with up to 20 spins, and all of the wins are doubled during the feature.
Setup and Play for Legends of Olympia
This slot can be played with up to 50 win lines. You can select your coin value (1c to 25c) and play up to 5 coins per line. This makes the biggest spin cost $62.50c if you're a high roller, and the smallest for all lines 50c if you prefer playing low limit games. Auto spin lets you play up to 100 games automatically.
You’ll want to see the contestants on the reels, as these are the biggest paying symbols. The discuss guy with the big nose has the biggest prize – 6000 coins for 5 on a line and 750 coins for 4. Next is the woman with the spear (3000 for 5), followed by what might be a chariot racer (1000) and the boxer (500). The runner and jumper are worth 200 and 150 coins for 5 respectively. Smaller wins come from the stadium, the medals and the gourd. There are no playing card symbols used in this game.
A man and woman bearing Olympic torches are the wild symbols. There are only two, one on the 2nd reel from the left and one on the 4th reel. When either or both hit an animation starts of them using their torches to light the Olympic torch. The entire reel then becomes wild, usually completing a lot of wins – especially those times that you get both of them together.
The remaining symbol is the scatter, this is a golden wreath. This pays out a multiple of your total spin amount, with 100x for 5 anywhere on the reels, 50x for 4 and 15x for 3. You will also start the free spins game with 3 or more. There are 10 spins for 3, 15 spins for 4 and 20 spins for 5.
Legends of Olympia – Bonus Game
In line with most Saucify slots, there is nothing particularly different from the main game in the free spins bonus round. A counter appears on top of the reels, with your wins and remaining spins tracked. You then cycle through your spins, picking up double wins every time you hit a winning combination. You can retrigger with 3 or more wreaths, which will simply add to the number of spins remaining.
If it were not for the pleasure of watching those doubled wins accumulate, this would be a very unremarkable bonus game!
Legends of Olympia – Conclusion
There are better slots in the Saucify range, both visually and in terms of game-play and features. While I do appreciate the use of expanding wilds, this is not enough to turn an ugly slot into one I would return to on its own. Doubled wins for the free spins bonus round is encouraging, though again nothing special enough to make this slot a recommendation. On the positive side, this is a solid game and has an interesting theme not used elsewhere. Worth a quick look, though unlikely to become a long term favourite.
