Achilles Deluxe Slots
We hope so, but there is only one way to know for sure how this game ranks among others based on historical or mythical subjects. Achilles Deluxe tells us about the main character even before we see the game. Achilles means Troy, Helen, and the Trojan horse, of course.
The original slot game, Achilles, still stands up nicely and is great to play when you get the time. So, does this version get better still? Let's find out.
Who developed Achilles Deluxe?
If you knew that the original Achilles title comes from RTG, you'll guess this one does too.
It's a safe bet that we can try this game without paying to do so, and that is indeed the case.
Troy gives us the theme
There is no need to know anything about the famous story, though, as everything you need to know about the slot game is in our review right here.
Supported by a beautiful design
This looks like a modern slot, as it should thanks to the modern release date. If you try the original first, followed by this one, you'll notice the difference.
Let's play: How does Achilles Deluxe work?
There is nothing new about the reel set in play here, as there are five reels, each with three symbols in view whenever they stop spinning. You've also got two progressive jackpots in action; these are available as potential prizes to all players, regardless of bet level. We approve of that, for sure.
They've used a W as the substitute (wild) icon, displaying it inside a circle. The game logo works harder too, acting as the scatter symbol. This means you only need to find the right quantity for a prize - they can appear anywhere to get you that prize.
Paylines in play in Achilles Deluxe
You've got 20 lines to cover, giving you plenty of scope to find prizes across one or more lines on any spin.
Is this a penny slot game?
Yes, it has earned that title. A penny per line gives you a 20-cent total wager, with other coins allowing bigger wagers if you want to go that way.
Don't forget to explore the paytable
This is an ideal way to become more familiar with the rules of the game. Expect one huge page telling you everything you need to know, so some scrolling is required before you can get to all the information.
Do you get the chance to play for bonuses?
No, sadly not in this case.
Free spins do feature though… twice
The two special symbols in this game are key to getting through to these rounds. Let's take them in turn.
Your first task is to find some scattered logos. Find three and you'll receive 10 games with a 2x multiplier on everything won. You can trigger more games by finding another three scattered logos… or just two of them with a wild anywhere on the same spin, which we like.
So, how else can you earn some free games? The wild is key to this method. Three must appear on the reels. You're then invited to pick one. The wilds hide 15, 20, and 25 free games, so even if you get the smallest amount you're going to fare well. You'll also receive 3x as the boosting multiplier for all prizes won, so it's got more potential there as well.
The wilds also replace scatters in this instance - something that doesn't occur in the base game.
We can keep this short as there is no indication of the return to player percentage in this game.
What do we think of the Achilles Deluxe online slot?
We liked the original and still do, so did this top it for us? We think so, although we're rating it at 8/10. We would have loved to see a separate bonus feature taking us into Troy, wouldn't you?
How big could the progressive jackpots get?
This is obviously the biggest prize you could get, with one always bigger than the other. However, with a random trigger required to get one, no one can tell how long it might be before the next person manages to get hold of one.
Would you play this just for some entertainment?
We would, although we imagine it would get a little dull after a time. However, you can certainly play through plenty of spins until you feel more familiar with the game.
You must then decide whether to play for real
Yes, and we think there are enough bets here to suit most players looking for a promising slot game to play. Look for a casino offering RTG games and see if you can secure a welcome bonus when you sign up.
You can meet Achilles on mobile too
And if you do, you can pick up a tablet or smartphone on the Android or iOS platform to play.
