The Age of the Gods: Maze Keeper slot is played on 6 reels, 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win initially. Known as the All Ways mechanic, winning combinations are formed when 3, 4, 5 or 6 identical symbols appear from left to right, from reel 1, on adjacent reels. The 4 higher value symbols require just 2 to give you a win. In addition, the matching symbols will pay regardless of the symbol position on the reels. In the free spins, there’s 14,400 ways to win (more details below).
Playable from 10p to £200 per spin, there’s a Bet button which brings up plus and minus buttons. These can be used to change your stake accordingly. Outside the UK, there’s a Turbo Mode function for faster spins as well as an Auto Play facility.
The Age of the Gods: Maze Keeper RTP is 95.99%. The progressive jackpots contribute 0.99% of this number meaning the actual return rate is 95%. This is a decent RTP rate for a jackpot slot. The volatility is high with the bigger wins coming from the free spins. The hit frequency rate is 22.19% meaning over 1 in 5 spins will give you a winning combination.
The maximum win is 10,000 x your total stake per spin or free spin. This is won once every 333,333,333 spins on average. Winning over 1,000 x your bet will occur every 117,055 spins. Whilst the max win can be won in the base game, the bigger payouts will almost certainly come from the free spins due to the increased number of ways to win. Part of the Age of the Gods jackpot network, the Ultimate Power Jackpot, if won, pays out at least £100,000.
With a Greek mythology theme, the Age of the Gods: Maze Keeper slot is based on Cretan princess Ariadne. The story focuses on exploring the labyrinth and you join Ariadne in helping Theseus escaping the Minotaur. Set inside the labyrinth, the soundtrack is quite epic and godly.
Visually, you will see A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals. 3 or more are needed for a win. The higher value symbols include axes, helmets, Ariadne, Theseus and Minotaur. Only 2 are required in combination for a win. Minotaur is the most rewarding symbol with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination paying 1, 3, 4, 5 or 6 x your total stake. Importantly, this symbol will appear stacked on all 6 reels.
The fire bowl is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the Free Games scatter. It can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 (i.e. all reels bar reel 1).
Created by developer Playtech using HTML5 technology, Age of the Gods: Maze Keeper can be played across many devices. This includes laptops, PCs, mobiles and tablets. With a bigger reel setup in the free spins, I would recommend a bigger screen but its perfectly playable on mobiles too.
The Age of the Gods: Maze Keeper slot offers 3 bonus features. There are wild multipliers up to 5x as well as free spins where up to 1,000 available. The free spins are played with 14,400 ways to win. You can also, randomly, win 4 progressive jackpots at random.
When the fire bowl symbol is part of a win, the Wild Multiplier feature is triggered. A multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x is applied to the win. This applies during the base game and in the free spins. If more than 1 wild is part of a win, the multiplier values are added together and not multiplied (i.e. 2x + 3x multipliers = 5x multiplier).
The Ways Boost Free Games feature is played when 3 to 6 Free Games scatters appear anywhere on the reel simultaneously in any position. 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will give you 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins respectively.
The reel setup changes from the base game and expands to 4x5x6x6x5x4 to give you 14,400 ways to win. Wins involving the wild will give you multiplier up to 5x (like in the base game).
Finally, landing 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will award 5, 8, 15, 25 or 100 additional free spins. You can retrigger plenty of times with a maximum of 1,000 free spins available in total.
Like with other Age of the Gods slots, Age of the Gods: Maze Keeper comes with a randomly triggered Age of the Gods Jackpot feature. Once in, you pick from 20 coins. The aim is to match 3 coins. With 4 progressive jackpots to be won, you are guaranteed to win a jackpot once in the feature.
The one you want to win is the Ultimate Power Jackpot. With an average payout of £488,000, it’s hit every 40 days on average. The maximum win was £852,000 with the minimum being £100,000.
