Chronicles of Olympus, also known as Chronicles of Olympus X UP, is a yet-to-be-released game from Alchemy Gaming. The game is developed and will be distributed by Microgaming. Coming from such a reputable developer, the title comes with high-quality graphics that help with the immersive quality of the gameplay. Chronicles of Olympus is the follow-up to Africa X Up, which is developed by the same game development studio. There are some subtle differences between the two, but they are similar in a lot of ways.
Chronicles of Olympus follows an ancient civilization theme, with Mount Olympus covering most of the background. The game features five reels and three columns, on which several symbols appear when you spin the reels. The symbols include several letters, Greek gods, expanding wilds, and scatters. The expanding wilds are the key to big wins as they turn other symbols on the reels they land into winning symbols.
The game is able to avoid many of the cliche symbols, storylines, and game play you would expect in slot games, with Alchemy gaming seemingly having learned from their first game in this series.
The game has 243 paylines. These are fixed and players cannot choose the number of paylines they would like to wager on. There is no autospin feature, but players can choose the number of coins they would like to wager, as well as the value of each coin they wager. To start the game, you will need to wager at least 0.30 coins. The maximum number of coins that players can wager per spin is 21.
The game has a reported RTP of 96.33% with a very high volatility. This makes it great for players who love smaller but more frequent wins. Since Chronicles of Olympus will feature the same X Up mechanic and launch system that was used in Africa X Up, players can expect similar gameplay and feel in this new game.
The maximum win amount from Chronicles of Olympus is x50,000 your wager. There is also the 50X win amount in the free spins gameplay section.
The free spin multiplier option is interesting because you climb the ladder as you continue playing. Once you get to a large enough multiplier, you can activate the free spins and play using this multiplier. You can also choose to start the bonus game at any time by buying the bonus, with the amount deducted from the amount in your gaming account.
As for free spins, Chronicles of Olympus comes with free spins where the multiplier applies as well as additional free spins as you play the game.
From everything we have seen so far, Chronicles of Olympus is a well-designed, interesting slot game that gives you the opportunity to win big. If its predecessor is anything to go by, players will love this addition to the X Up series.
