The symbols in the Guardian of Athens slot all have a Greek theme - for example, the card suits look like they are made from ornate colored marble. In total, there are 10 basic symbols split into high-tier and low-tier groups. Their payouts are all based on the bet per line.
The low-tier group contains different card suits. The 10, J, and Q all have the same lowest multiplier of 5x for 3x symbols, and 25x for 5x symbols. Next, the K and A both have a 10x multiplier for 3x symbols and a 40x multiplier for 5x symbols.
The high-tier symbols are different artifacts from ancient Greece. The golden dagger and golden owl statue have a maximum multiplier of 60x for 5x symbols. Next, the golden warrior helmet and gold coins have an 80x and 100x multiplier for 5x symbols respectively. Finally, the top-paying symbol is the golden cup surrounded by treasure. If you get 5x of this symbol, you get a multiplier of 150x!
This game also features a wild symbol that is a golden shield. This can appear on reels 1 to 5, and substitutes for everything except the scatter. Also, it has a multiplier too that ranges from 1x to 5x. If two or more wilds appear in a winning combo, their different multipliers are multiple together!
The best Guardian of Athens bonus feature is the fate bonus. This is a selection of Guardian of Athens free spins and is triggered via the temple scatter symbol. You must get 3 scatter symbols to trigger the fate bonus, and the scatters only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4.
Once the fate bonus is active, you can choose from 1 of four different bonuses:
Essentially, you can choose either fewer free spins with a higher multiplier or more free spins with a lower multiplier. The same bet value is used that was active when you won the free spins, and the basic pay table symbols are used.
The Guardian of Athens RTP is 96.58% and it is classed as 5 for volatility on Quickspin’s scale - this means it is highly volatile. The RTP is decent, and the volatility means that you can expect to win infrequently. But, you should also get more frequent high-paying wins as a tradeoff.
