It disturbs me quite badly knowing that Marvel Super Heroes games would no longer be available in any Playtech casinos soon. My favourite Blade game would rest deep in the seabed, the other Super Heroes too would have to find a new resting place, and probably millions of fans around the world would grief their demise. Oh god! Playtech has introduced this Age Of The Gods series of games, in an attempt to replace the Marvel games, and maintaining the same Jackpot prizes. Will it be successful? Only God knows. What I know is that nothing can replace those Marvel games, and no new games may even be able to match them, but I hope I'm wrong.
I've been trying out one version of The Age Of The Gods games, namely, the Goddess Of Wisdom game. I've had some deposit free spins offers a few times already so far to try it out, but none of those plays came even close to my expectations. Maybe it takes a while to get used to any new series, and I'm counting on that, or else I'd be facing a drastically reduced amount of good playable games in the Playtech list! Can this be the beginning of Playtech's downfall? Hmm, I really wonder!
The Goddess is the Wild symbol, it doesn't pay anything for itself, it doesn't double any wins, and appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. How dumber can any Wild symbol become?! Besides substituting for other symbols, the Wilds becoming Expanding Wilds only in the Free Spins game, not in the base game. Sheesh! The Owl is the Scatter symbol, 5 of them paying only 100x the total bet, way less than Playtech's norm, and getting 3 or more of these Scatters award the Battle Bonus Games, the free spins game. There are 3 kinds to choose from, exactly as what you would find in Elektra's Free Spins game. Pick from 7 free spins with a 4x multiplier, my favourite, or 10 free spins with a 1x multiplier, or 14 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Each choice plays with one type of weapon only, the highest paying symbol being in the 10 free spins with 1x multiplier game. The choice is yours. More Battle Bonus games cannot be retriggered, sadly enough. The Mask of Goddess is the highest paying symbol, 5 of which pays 5000x the line bet, her Suit of Armour 1000x, her Helmg 1000x too, but all other symbols are at 200x the line bet for 5 of them. Not good enough to Marvel games' norm, but higher than average though.
My biggest disappointment in this Goddess Of Wisdom game is in the Free Spins game itself. Trying to get one is much more harder than I'm used to getting it. Even though it's supposed to replace Marvel's Elektra, it just doesn't match up to it. Each one of my several plays did not give me any nice or decent win. The Free Spins game did not pay out good enough, less than what Elektra would usually pay, so my impressions on this The Age Of The Gods: Goddess Of Wisdom game is not good for now. Hopefully, it will get better and not become a disaster.
