Almighty Reels – Garden of Persephone Review
Almighty Reels – Garden of Persephone was created by Novomatic in 2018. This is a stunningly designed game that offers you tons of immersive entertainment while taking you back to the mythical times when the Greek gods ruled the world! The Goddess Persephone was the beautiful daughter of Zeus, the king of the gods, and Demeter, the goddess of the harvest.
Hades fell in love with her and wanted her for his wife but Demeter refused. So, the god of the underworld kidnapped her. To cut a long story short, he and Demeter reached an agreement that Persephone would spend half the year in the underworld with him, and the other half on earth. In the underworld, she was the queen of the underworld, and on earth, she became the goddess of vegetation! And this game takes us to her beautiful garden in the time that she would spend on earth! But before you venture into her celestial garden, it would be wise to understand what you need to do to win her favour and come back with the treasures that await you in this game!
Almighty Reels – Garden of Persephone is a 5-reel, 25-payline game with an RTP of 95.08% and low to medium volatility. These are technicalities you need to keep in mind when playing this game. You start the game by placing your bets. Bets range from 25p to £250, which means players of all strategies can enjoy this game. To place your bet, use the plus and minus keys on the Total Bet tab. The paylines are fixed, so you do not need to adjust them.
Now, those technicalities that we spoke of are important to your betting strategy. An average RTP and low to medium volatility mean that you will not get massive wins in this game. What you should look out for are the more frequent but smaller wins. This means that you should adjust your bets so that you can play at least 100 to 200 spins at a time. Once you have set your bet, you can click on the Spin button to begin the game. Winning in this game requires you to land at least 3 symbols of the same kind on a payline.
The higher the value of the symbol and the greater the number of symbols on the reels, the more your payout will be.
Additional Game Features
Almighty Reels – Garden of Persephone is full of special features that make this game truly exciting!
Wild – The Wild is the Grecian temple which replaces all other symbols but for the Scatter. This symbol is used to complete paylines in combination with other symbols, thereby increasing your chances of landing a win.
Scatter – The Colossal Gold Coin is the Scatter in this game, and it only appears in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels on the reelscape. If you are lucky enough to land 3 Scatters on the middle three reels, then you will be awarded 10 Free Spins.
Free Spins and Giant Symbol – This is the highlight of the game, where a massive 3×3 stacked symbol lands on reels. This symbol is only activated just before the Free Spins bonus round commences. Just before the Free Spins round starts, you are asked to pick one golden coin from many. This selection round decides which symbol will be the Giant Symbol. Only the high-value symbols – Persephone, the Vase, the Helmet, the Cornucopia, or the Harp – are in this selection. The 3×3 Giant Symbol takes up reels 2, 3, and 4 and remains stuck on the reels until the Free Spins round is over. Thanks to this feature, you can win as much as 100x your stake for every free spin! The Free Spin feature cannot be re-triggered, so when you complete the 10 Free Spins, you go back to the base game.
Gamble Feature – As with other Novomatic games, you have the Gamble Feature in Almighty Reels – Garden of Persephone too. After you land a winning combination, you are given the option to gamble your wins. If you accept, you will see a playing card that flashes from red to black. You need to time your click so that you pick the right colour. If you do, then you can double your win. If you don’t, well, you lose all the money you have won in the game so far.
Almighty Reels – Garden of Persephone has a really great game design. Persephone is stunningly rendered, and the gamescape is beautiful! In the background, you can see lovely autumnal trees as well as lush greenery in the middle of which stands an ancient Greek temple. The reelscape is framed in gold and the colours of the high-value symbols (the harp, cornucopia, vase, and the helmet) are glowing and vibrant. The only disappointing thing is the lack of creativity in the design of the low-value symbols (10, J, Q, K, and A). The sounds are standard Novomatic, but the lovely Grecian music is activated when the bonus games begin. Overall, this is a fantastically designed game that will give you hours of entertainment.
Novomatic has really scored a hit with Almighty Reels – Garden of Persephone! It’s rating of 8.6 proves that punters all over approve of what the developer has done with this game. It has great graphics, exciting gameplay. This is a game that we would recommend wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a visual treat and exciting gameplay!
