Athena is the goddess of wisdom and she was always seen with her golden owl close by. This five reel ten payline slots game pays homage to the golden owl of Athena who was also known or his wisdom and loyalty. Players may try out the game in fun mode before placing real money bets of up to $10 per spin. There is an auto play option for players that like to preset the number of spins the game runs for and at the end of any winning spin the player can opt to try and double up his winnings. Double up takes players to a new screen where they are invited to guess heads or tails as the side that the tossed coin will land on. A correct guess wins the player double his winnings but an incorrect guess loses the player his winnings for that spin.
In this game the owl is the scatter symbol that rewards players with multiplying payouts in addition to being the trigger for free spins games. Five of the owls on screen reward the player with 100x the coin bet placed, four reward the player with 10x the coin bet placed. Three and more of the scatters reward the player with free spins. Players win 8, 12 or 20 free spins depending on the number of scatter triggers. During the free spins players may see Athena appearing at the top of a reel and scattering magic oil on a reel. This turns the reel into a special wild that is totally expanded and rewards the player with extra payouts. And don't forget that at the end of any spin the player can attempt to double his winnings. This game is magical and rewarding with a lovely taste of Ancient Greece gracing the screens.
