Theseus Rises Slot Machine Game Overview
This is a back to back mythological slot release for the provider, as they are freshly coming off their Book of Loki release. Stat-wise they are similar, with Theseus Rises having a higher 96% RTP and also a higher max payout of impressive 7,500x, even the game layout has been expanded by a row. It’s looking promising so far, so we have to see what our hero is truly capable of.
Turning now to the graphic design, the slots experts at 1×2 Gaming have made one of their iconic games, which is to say, they have stayed true to their style in making slots. The high-paying picture symbols are portraits of all the historic figures that are part of the Theseus myth, including the hero himself.
Theseus Rises slots has royal cards as its low-paying symbol category. These are created in the manner of tiles with patters from the ancient world around them. At any rate, the gameplay is based on the always-entertaining drop-down or cascading wins, which keeps things lively every time there is a string of wins.
The sound is a light melody that’s been carried out with great artistry, quite enjoyable by all means, binding the visual aspect together with the overall impression.
Cascading Reels feature
The cascading reels mean that successful symbols are removed from the grid following a winning spin. New symbols drop into the vacated positions and a new payout consideration is made. The cascades continue until there’s one where no new winner is formed.
By landing 3, 4, or 5 of the Minotaur scatters you’ll get 10, 15, or 20 free spins respectively. There’s also a multiplier in this feature, which will increase by x1 each time the Golden Thread symbol lands.
It is also possible to win additional spins by landing more scatters during the feature.
When 3 of the bonus symbols are visible on the grid at the same time, this feature will automatically trigger. It will be played on a new screen where the duel between Theseus and Minotaur will happen.
It’s a board game where Theseus and Minotaur progress by the number decided by the rolling dice. The feature ends when Theseus catches up to Minotaur or the other way around.
Buy Feature Option – you can choose to skip the rolls and enter either Free Spins or Labyrinth Chase feature straight away.
With hundreds of slots taking Greek myths as inspiration, it can be tricky for a slot with that theme to stand out. 1×2 Gaming has managed that with Theseus Rises thanks to the very impressive design.
The features aren’t massively innovative but the cash trail bonus and the free spins with expanding multipliers are a solid combination. The Labyrinth Chase Bonus feature can give you 7,500 x stake wins which is impressive for a trail bonus feature.
