Athena Ascending appeals to those who prefer gameplay that has both conventional and experimental elements to it.

Athena Ascending is a slot dedicated to the Greek goddess of wisdom, played on five reels. Lines for forming winning combinations in the Athena Ascending 20 slot. There are not many features in the Athena Ascending slot, but we can say with confidence that those implemented here will make your gaming process quite exciting.


Wilds in the Athena Ascending slot can only appear on the three central reels. As always, wild symbols are used to replace standard images, and all wild symbols that appear on the playing field will have a random multiplier. If the win contains a wild with a multiplier, it will be increased by its value.

Free Spin

The Wisdom symbol (owl) is the scatter in the Athena Ascending slot and is used to trigger free spins. To start spinning the reels for free, you need to wait until at least three owls appear on the playing field. During free spins, the multiplier wild features become even better. When a wild appears on the playing field, it is held in place until the multiplier value reaches x4. Once this happens, the wild symbol is removed from the reels.

Where Rise of Athena had a medium volatile math model, Athena Ascending pumps this setting up, pushing it into a 'high' classification, or 7 out of 10. The RTP, as always with Play'n GO, is variable, topping out at 96.2% before dipping to a number of lower configurations, depending on the market. A rather simply set-up game, Athena Ascending is played on a 5-reel, 3-row matrix, with 20 paylines for landing winning combinations. Available on any device, players may select stakes of a budget-friendly 5 p/c up to £/€100 per spin.

Not a lot has changed appearance-wise when it comes to the regular pay symbols, though the individual line win values have been decimated. For the lows, we get 10-A card royals, designed in a sort of SPQR style, while the high pays are a scroll, urn, helmet, Pegasus, and Athena. All pay for three to five of a kind, though landing two Athena symbols can constitute a win as well. For values, a five low-pay symbol win is worth 1x the bet, whereas five of the premiums pay 2x to 50x the stake.

Athena Ascending: Slot Verdict
While the high-level concept is similar between Rise of Athena and Athena Ascending, when you drill down into the details, they are in some ways also rather different. Though, perhaps not enough to change the minds of those who thought the original game was kinda meh, and vice versa. Graphically the standard is ok, and the soundtrack helps deepen the ambience, so anyone up for some simplistic Ancient Greek era gaming won't be let down too much by Athena Ascending's audio-visuals. If you're in the mood for innovation, there's a bit, but neither Athena games have especially boiled over with ground-breaking ideas.

So what's new this time? To bullet point the changes, so to speak, volatility is up, as is max winning potential, reaching as high as 10,000x the bet – double what was available in the previous game. Less free spins are initially awarded, but this time, wild multipliers increase in value between spins rather than decrease, mixing things up. The respin feature has been bolted on the end of free spins should wilds be in view on the final spin, too, possibly lengthening a bonus round and pushing out a few extra wins. Seen solely as a follow-up, Play'n GO has been quite astute with the changes it has made, kneading out the original slot like dough to make something relatively new with it.

Then again, the first wasn't wildly imaginative, to begin with, so it'll be interesting to see how Athena Ascending is received. It's hard to really fault, having been built to a reasonably high standard without being a game the Play'n GO team really went to town on. Then again, perhaps they did, but it didn't feel like Athena Ascending was the sort of slot that particularly taxed Play'n GO's considerable powers of design and execution.
