The Golden Owl of Athena Slot Review

Released June 2018

The Golden Owl of Athena slots game is produced by BetSoft. BetSoft are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment and have recently started offering their own casino platform. The company was founded in 2006, entering the slots market 4 years later. Betsoft do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such we know that the house edge for The Golden Owl of Athena is 4.95%.

The Golden Owl of Athena game has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game uses traditional paylines, 10 in total, playing from left to right.

Special Symbols

Wild – The “Golden Owl of Athena” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols other than Free Spins. The symbol is also a Scatter, meaning it will pay out if you have 3 or ore of them anywhere on the reels. 3 “Golden Owl of Athena” symbols anywhere on the reels will award the player with 1 coin. 4 “Golden Owl of Athena” symbols anywhere on the reels will award the player with 10 coins. 5 “Golden Owl of Athena” symbols anywhere on the reels will award the player with 100 coins.

Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is also a Golden Owl of Athena, except this time it will have “Free Spins” written across it.

Bonus Features

Free Spins – The number of Free Spins you are awarded is determined by the number of “Free Spins” symbols that you reveal. 3 “Free Spins” symbols will award you 8 free spins. 4 “Free Spins” symbols will award you with 12 free spins. 5 “Free Spins” symbols will award you with 20 free spins.

After triggering the Free Spins, a symbol (not the Wild symbol) is chosen at random to become a bonus symbol. If there are enough (this is not specified in the game rules) bonus symbols on the reels during the Free Spins feature then they will expand to fill all the reels.

Free Spins can be re-triggered. If this happens the bonus symbol will remain the same.

Double Up – After any win you can risk what you have earned by pressing the Double Up button. You bet half or all of your winnings and will win or lose based on the toss of a coin. You can attempt to double up as often as you like.

Buy Feature – You can skip straight to the Free Spins feature and be awarded 10 free spins if you are willing to spend cash on the “Buy Feature”. The amount you will have to spend is displayed on the button.


The Golden Owl of Athena is a decent looking game that takes you to ancient Greece and a world occupied by Athena, Greek Goddess of wisdom. The natural animal companion for a Goddess of Wisdom is surely an owl and as such the Golden Owl takes centre stage in this game. The number of different symbols is pretty disappointing, with the main symbol, essentially being used for the two key features. There are a few interesting features but this is nowhere near as richly immersive as some of the BetSoft games you might have played recently. There are Free Spins that can be re-triggered and have an additional bonus within them. There are wilds as well, but that’s about as much as we have until you bring in the Buy Now feature and the Double Up feature. These seem to come as standard with all Betsoft games just now and have to be dealt with caution as they are a high risk addition to any game. The house edge is higher than we would want to see, making this a game you could probably manage to live without.
