Cast a Spell of Success
Wings of Riches will take players on an adventure through an enchanted forest, where magical elves and mother nature can produce some blossoming big wins. The 5 reel 20 fixed win line engine boasts a win of up to £30K (on each line), wilds, free spins, multipliers and a spreading wild. Think fairy-tale fairies and you’ll be bang on. Bryan said on their latest creation: “Wings of Riches is all about classic art style and multipliers with the spreading wilds. Using proven mechanics and an appealing theme should provide a solid performer for the core slot player all over the world.”
Ancient mythology has thrown up some prolific gods over the years; from Zeus to Poseidon, but Play’N Go have brought together four Gods from different cultures for one big showdown – Divine Showdown. The characters in the spotlight are the Norse God of thunder, Thor; Wukong, the Chinese monkey king; Greek Goddess of wisdom and war, Athena and Anubis, the Egyptian God of death, all of which bring their own unique bonuses.
The game is certainly an interesting addition, especially when the free spins bonus has been triggered; here you get to choose one of the Gods to represent you in an epic battle. The remaining trio of Gods will enter into a fierce fight with your chosen God and if he remains victorious, so do you!
CEO Johan Tornqvist said on their latest concept: “Mythologies are extremely popular in all forms of entertainment but they very rarely ever crossover with each other in any way. We wanted an imaginative concept for this game and, with the scope each mythology brings to the title, it brings a new perspective on a popular genre and adds a great deal of excitement to the gameplay.”
Strike it Lucky
Pragmatic Play are throwing their God into the ring with their new video slot – Greek Gods. Players will enter into the powerful world of Zeus where lightning strikes can produce some electrifying results. The leading software provider has created an animated take on the Greek God with reels designed to resemble the golden temple of Olympus.

Land a stack of lightning symbols (3) beneath either of these to win the stated value.
Land lightning bolts on three different reels to trigger bonus spins – this is where prizes appear to the top of all five reels for a lucrative winning opportunity.
