When we heard the news about this game, we immediately thought of the Achilles slot. It turns out both are from the same developer, and that is promising news because the original still looks pretty good today.
If you are wondering what we are going on about, relax. We have all the details available about the Achilles Deluxe slot game. You can go back a few years and try the original one too, but here’s the info you need for the new one.
Who has created both these games?
The team at Realtime Gaming came up with these, and we can confirm the new one is bigger and bolder than the original.
Try before you buy!
You can say that of many things, but can you say it of a slot game? It turns out you can, thanks to the practice alternative that comes with this slot. Just be sure you have a demo balance to work with other than your own cash.
The theme of Troy
We are referring to the city of Troy, in this case, with Helen and Achilles as the stars of the story. You might just see that Trojan horse too if you look out for it.
A bigger, bolder, better design for this one
You would assume a deluxe slot game is going to look the part, and you’d be right in this case. The creators knew that we would be looking closely at the Achilles Deluxe slot and comparing it with the original. We are pleased to say that it stands up rather better than the first one. That said, we still like the original, so don’t discount it if you haven’t tried it yet.
What can you expect from this slot game?
The same format is used as in the first version, with five reels and three symbols per reel in play here. Also up for grabs are not one but two progressive prizes. We understand they randomly unlock after a paid spin, so we guess you need to land a certain combination of symbols to make this happen.
They have gone for a W as the substitute (or wild), enclosing it in a circle. The scatter role is taken on by the game logo.
Paylines to play on
There are 20 lines involved in the game. If you want to see how they fall on the reels, look at the paytable.
Bet on the real game from 20 cents a spin
If you are going to bet on every line here, as we recommend you ought to if possible, you can play from 20 cents a go. The largest coin gives you a total wager for everything of $100.
While some games in the RTG collection spread their paytables over several pages, we get one long page here that involves scrolling. We prefer the other multipage version, but hey, it doesn’t matter too much. What do you think and prefer to see?
Any bonuses in action here?
No, there are none in this game.
Can you find any free spin opportunities?
Oh, yes, and if you recall, the original game gave you more than one way to find them. This version does the same thing.
The scatter can unlock 10 freebies in exchange for three of those game logos. You receive a 2x multiplier whenever you find a prize in those. You can find more spins with another three scatters or by topping up two scatters with a wild on the same spin.
The wilds can reveal free spins on their own, too. Three wilds bring you a chance to choose one of the triggering symbols. You are guaranteed to receive 15 at least, but you could get more – either 20 or 25 of them. And better still, all prizes are tripled here.
In the base game, the wilds won’t replace the scatters, but in this version of the free game feature, they will.
RTP details for Achilles Deluxe
If you know a bit about Realtime Gaming, you may know that they don’t include the return to player details with any of their slot releases. That applies here as well.
Do we love Achilles Deluxe?
And can we give it a score out of 10 points? We can… and we decided to go for eight out of 10. Finding two ways to unlock different versions of the free game feature was the highlight here. See if you agree.
How much could be won?
Well, the big prize is the progressive, of course, but there is no way of knowing just how high that could go before someone hits the required combination of symbols in just the right order to release it…
Practice gaming is perfect
You can play for as long as you wish with no risk of losing out. It gives you a feel for the game and how appealing it is to play. You can see all the characters there as well.
Would you change to the real version?
Only you can decide whether Achilles Deluxe hits all the right points for you. If you do start the real version, make sure you double check your selected wager before you play.
