The new Age of the Gods: King of the Underworld online slot from Playtech was officially released in November 2019, and it can now be found at a growing number of fully UK online casinos. Unusually, the new King of the Underworld online slot is NOT connected to the Age of the Gods jackpot network. Instead, on any lucky spin, you will be playing to win up to 10,000x times your total stake.
Although this game doesn’t have a progressive jackpot to play for from within the Age of the Gods Jackpot Bonus, there are still plenty of fun ways to win prizes. This game takes just seconds to launch in most web browsers, no download required, it’s available on desktop and mobile, and you can enjoy playing on this new Playtech slot either in the real money mode or free play demo mode.
Altogether there are 5 reels and 20 paylines, and the wide betting range allows you to take one spin of the reels from as little as £0.20 up to a maximum of £40.00 per spin. The Tartarus Symbol is the Wild Symbol, and it will replace all other symbols on the reels apart from the Charon Scatter Symbol. The top jackpot on this game will instantly be awarded when five of the Wild Symbols land across any of the active paylines.
Just 3 Scatter Symbols landing on the reels at the same time gets you an instant cash prize worth just 5x times your total stake, but 4 showing up anywhere on the reels gets you 25x times your total stake, and 5 Scatter Symbols gets you 100x times your total stake. The two most exciting things about this new Playtech slot are the two fun picking bonuses – the Gates of Hell bonus and the Thread of Fate feature.
The Gates of Hell Bonus will trigger when 3 Cerberus Symbols land in consecutive order across any of the active paylines, starting from the leftmost reel (reel 1), and the Thread of Fate Bonus will trigger when 3 Fate Sisters Symbols land in consecutive order across any of the active paylines, also starting from the leftmost reel (reel 1). In the Gates of Hell Bonus, you will be presented with three doors that lead to the Underworld, and clicking on one of these doors could release a Soul (a coin prize).
This multi-level picking bonus will only come to an end after you have managed to avoid releasing Cerberus after going through all 6 doors, or when you select a door that releases Cerberus. All coin prizes won are multiplied by the total number of paylines that you played with when the bonus triggered. In the Thread of Fate Bonus, simply click on one of the spindles to reveal a prize. Each time you select a spindle, it will weave a thread through the Fate Sisters for the Atropos to cut. The bonus round will only come to an end when the thread doesn’t get cut.
To play on any the Age of the Gods online slots from Playtech right now, including the new King of the Underworld slot, some of the best UK online casinos that I can recommend heading over to are bgo Casino, Casino.com, Betfair Casino and Mansion Casino.
