The famous hero of Greek mythology, whose legendary tales were the subject of such famous writers as Homer and Shakespeare, is brought to a slot machine in this game developed by Real Time Gaming. Many of the famous characters and locations of the legendary Trojan are brought back for this game.
Achilles slots features 5 reels with 20 pay lines. It is a game for both high rollers and penny slot players. You can bet as little as 0.01on each spin or as much as 100.00. The game also includes bonus rounds and a progressive jackpot.
The game board of Achilles is quite impressive, with betting details displayed both above the reels and below them. In the middle of the screen, near the top, is the current total of the Achilles progressive jackpot, which can be hit at random at any time. Whatever bet you make gives you a chance to collect this jackpot. However, the larger your wager, the more chances you are given to hit it.
Achilles slots has a special feature that you won't find in many other slots games. It is a “Skill Stop” button which lets you stop the reels anytime you want. If you think you see a winning combination on the board, just hit the stop button and the reels will stop spinning immediately. The Skill Stop button is an option which you don't have to select before a spin and the reels will still stop if you don't push the button.
The symbols for the Achilles slot game include a Flag of Troy, an ancient Shield and the famous Trojan Horse. There is also the legendary figure of Helen of Troy. If you can get 5 of those symbols on one active line, the payoff will be 5,000 coins.
Special Bonus Features
The title character, the hero Achilles, operates as the game's Wild symbol. Anytime he appears, you will get a payoff, no matter what the other symbols on the line may be. Achilles also operates as a Scatter symbol, since three of them will take you to the Achilles bonus feature. You'll choose among several Achilles symbols and then the number of free spins you've won will be revealed.
The regular Scatter symbol in the game is the City of Troy. Get at least three of them on a line and you will win 10 free spins which will have doubled payoffs.
