Helen of Troy, Paris, Hector and Achilles. These are names which almost everyone will have heard of and these mythical hero’s and the lady who sparked a war offer the biggest rewards on the pay-table of the Legends of Troy slot. Both Paris and his ill-fated love Helen have a massive 1500x your line bet available for capture of all six symbols. Just as Achilles and Hector found themselves even in combat, both grant the same 750x reward on this game, which is worthy of their prowess and reknown. We would normally pick fault at this point for High 5 Games using playing card icons for the low-value symbols but they have been quite creative this time. With each of the six icons rendered in letters from the classic Greek alphabet.
It’s the small touches which an often make or break a slots theme and it’s good to see that the production quality of this game is as high as we are used to from H5G. The animation is great, the music sits perfectly with the theme and the rendering of the reels as a Greek temple really adds to the feel. They do have to be forgiven slightly for depicting Achilles in a very close resemblance to Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, but, we guess the two demi-gods are not so far apart in the end.
The other symbols of note on the slot are the wilds which take the form of shields. We say it plural as if you have the feature bet enabled there are two kinds. The first will replace all symbols except for the scatter and has a fixed jackpot of 2500x for all six on an active pay-line. The second serves the same purpose but can randomly appear with a credit value as part of the scatter bucks feature bonus, these don’t have to be on an active pay-line or part of a winning combination, they just add the credit value specified instantly. This grows the further down the reels they appear, with a wild scatter bucks icon on reel one offering 25-100 credits up to 25-10000 on reel 6!
