Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon Slot Review
Welcome to Atlantis, the kingdom over which the great Poseidon, the God of the Sea, rules! This is yet another addition to the Almighty Reels series by Novomatic. In previous editions, you were introduced to the King of the Greek Gods, Zeus, and then to his beautiful daughter, Persephone. And now, you will meet his moody brother – Poseidon. Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon is a gorgeous video slot which boasts of giant symbols, free games, a gamble feature, wilds and scatters that can increase your odds.
Gameplay in Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon is pretty straightforward. You’ll be playing a 5-reel slot game that has3 rows and 25 pay lines. To begin, you have to set your bet. Players have the option of choosing a stake between 25p and £100 for each spin. Bets can be adjusted using the plus and minus keys on either side of the betting tab. While setting your bet, you need to keep in mind that this game has a Return to Player (RTP) rate of 96.3%, with low-to-medium volatility. This is a surprising turn because Novomatic is usually known to create high volatility games with low-to-average RTPs! So, this is definitely a deviation from the norm for the developer.
The higher-than-average RTP and the low-to-medium volatility of Realm of Poseidon mean that you will get a steady stream of smaller wins.
But you’ll need to hold on for the bigger wins – they won’t be easy to come by. This is why we suggest that you adjust your bets in such a way that you will be able to spin as many games as possible. Once your bets are set to your satisfaction, you can click on the Spin button to begin playing. To win at this game, you need to land at least 3 identical symbols on the reels starting from left to right. The amount you win will depend on the kind of symbol you land as well as how many you land. Low-value symbols are the A, K, Q, J, and 10, while the high-value symbols are the cornucopia, the amphora, the harp, the warrior’s helmet, and Poseidon himself. The Wild is the Temple, and you also get a random Giant Symbol that takes this game to the next level.
Additional Game Features
The base game is interesting and can win you a tidy sum of money. For example, if you are lucky enough to land 5 Poseidon symbols across a payline, you can win 4x your stake! So, when you add in the additional game features, you really take this game to the next level of excitement and big wins!
Wilds – The Wild, as we said, is the Temple, and when you land this symbol, it can replace all others with the exception of the Scatter. Landing this symbol increases your chances of scoring a win.

Free Games Bonus Feature – As we said, the bonus feature in Almighty Reels – Realm of Poseidon awards you 10 free spins.
