The Mighty Atlas
The Mighty Atlas Slot Machine
Ever wondered where the weight lifting sport of lifting Atlas stones originated? Or are you one with a flair for history who already knows the answer? Either way, the new online version of the Mighty Atlas slot from IGT and High 5 Games is here to remind us all of the legend of Greek mythology that was the titan ‘Atlas’. Brother of Prometheus, Atlas fought for the losing side in the great war between the Titans and the Olympian gods. As punishment, he was condemned to stand at the far west side of the earth and forever carry the weight of the sky on his shoulders. This is interesting for many reasons, not least of which is that modern images show him holding the earth rather than the heavens. A further story states that the Atlas mountains get their name from a giant of that name who Perseus turned to stone, who doesn’t love an epic ancient Greek myth?
If there’s one thing that slot players love – It’s their ancient Greek themed slots games. From the various different versions of the Zeus game from WMS to Amatic’s Arising Pheonix slot, this theme is as old as slots themselves. Even a land based casino or two have chosen this theme in their time for the actual building and decor! IGT released this particular game some time ago and as part of their long-standing collaboration High 5 Games have provided input and produced the online and mobile version of the slot. It’s certainly been popular as a physical slot, but with a lot more competition how does it rate online?
