Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Dead in SIA Casino Exclusive

by Glenn Baird - November 13, 2020

Sports Interaction Casino (SIA Casino) is no stranger to Playtech exclusive and the latest title to be given that particular honour is none other than “Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Dead.”

As usual Playtech hasn’t made it all that easy to gain access to the slot and as such we haven’t yet managed to formulate a conclusive review because, quite frankly, we haven’t played it yet.

However, what we can do is tell you what we do know about it and let you come to your own conclusions before we do so ourselves once we have gained access to the slot.

Age of the Gods: Ruler of the Dead is the latest in a long line of slots to take on the “Age of Gods” title. Up until now we have had titles that involve the Greek, Roman and Norse Gods, all which have proved to be firm favourites in the Playtech back catalogue.

This time round we are back in Ancient Greece, but we’re not taking a walk on the light side. As the name would suggest, this one is all about Hades, the God of the Underworld, and the kingdom (also called Hades) that he ruled over.

The thumbnail alone will tell you that this one is all about mountains and rivers of fire. You’ll find his 3 headed dog, Cerberus, the protector of the kingdom of Hades, along with other wellknown characters from the Greek mythology.

There is a Wild symbol that is represented as a depiction of Tartarus, “the deep abyss that is used as a dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked and as the prison for the Titans.”

There is a Scatter symbol that is represented by Charon, the Ferryman who took the damned souls of the dead to Hades.

There are at least two Bonus features to play and it sounds as if Playtech have worked hard to ensure their chosen theme plays a significant part in the way those Bonus features play out. There is at least one feature where you need to choose doors that may or may not lead you into the depths of Hades.

Most of the slots in this series come with a jackpot, so I don’t think it would be all that presumptuous to assume the same from this one. And it is also pretty likely that one of the bonus games will be a set of Free Spins.

Consensus appears to suggest that there will be 20 paylines, playing across a 5x3 grid and the house edge should be just shy of 4%. I obviously don’t know if any of this is 100% accurate without playing the game myself, but if the house edge does come in at less than 4% then it is very likely we’ll be scoring this one highly when do finally get a proper look at it.

One thing we do know for sure is that the slot isn’t set for general release until the end of this month, but that early access is available for anyone playing at SIA casinos.
