Age Of Troy Turns Legend into Slot
Players at Novomatic casinos online will have access to the EGT slot title Age Of Troy. In common with most of the games delivered by EGT and Novomatic, it features detailed artwork and vibrant colours; in this title, they are employed to tell the legendary tale of Paris, prince of Troy, and his stolen love Helen, the bride of Greek King Agamemnon.
The 10-year war that followed their elopement left the vast booty of Troy in the hands of the conquering Greeks, and Age Of Troy offers players similar wealth, for the right combination of symbols. The title has five reels displaying three windows each, and 20 fixed paylines. Players can wager 1, 2, 5, 10 or 20 credits per line, for a minimum bet per spin of 20 and a maximum of 400.
Jackpot Cards Offer Progressives at Random
Age Of Troy is also linked into the Jackpot Cards network, so one of four progressive jackpots is a possibility at any time during play. There are four meters above the Age Of Troy reels, which show the four progressive jackpots, each identified with a different card suit, as they mount up according to the number of players active on the network.
A Jackpot Cards bonus can be triggered at random after any Age Of Troy spin. If it is activated, the player is shown a selection of face down cards, and must pick three of the same suit to win the progressive jackpot linked to that suit.
Clean, Crisp and Colourful Artwork
There is a light, summery feel to the colours and designs used in Age Of Troy, focusing more on the love affair between Helen and Paris than the bloody war they provoked. Only three poker symbols are used: the Q, K and A. These are rendered as sharp, angular letters reminiscent of Euclidian geometry, and pay equal prizes of 5, 20 or 100 credits for three, four or five of a kind.
A Grecian urn and a cornucopia spilling gold coins also share matching values: 10, 50 or 200 credits. A military helmet and a vengeful Grecian warship are the next icons, each winning 20, 100 or 400 credits, followed by Helen, who wins 50, 150 or 500 credits. Paris pays a prize for two of a kind: 10 credits, then 50, 200 or 1,000 credits for three, four or five matches.
Scatter and Wild also Theme-related
The Age Of Troy Scatter is an ancient temple, and although it wins no prizes for its own combinations, three Scatters in any windows on the reels will trigger a round of 12 free spins, during which stacked Wilds appear to increase wins. These free spins can be retriggered by another three Scatters during the bonus round.
The Age Of Troy Wild is, not surprisingly, the famous Trojan horse, which proved the downfall of Troy. It also has no value for its own combinations, but functions purely as a substitute for any other symbols apart from the Scatter. During bonus rounds, when the Wilds stack, its ability to create multiple winning paylines at once is enhanced.
