Arguably the most featured, Greek Gods are familiar to many who have heard the stories of their power and importance. Zeus, the king of all of the Greek Gods, appears in many slots, including Gamesys Zeus 1000, Gameplay Interactive’s Zeus King of Gods and WMS’s Zeus. These slots see the God of Thunder surrounded by lightening which often makes its way on to the reels to create some impressive wins.
Zeus isn’t the only Greek God that features in this theme, with Mircrogaming’s Hot as Hades delving into the tale of Zeus’s brother Hades, also known as the God of the Underworld. Another brother, Poseidon, the God of the Sea, appears in Novomatic’s Lord of the Ocean, whilst their father, the Titan Kronos, or the God of Time, is the focus of the WMS slot which shares his name.
Many of the Gods Slots which follow the Greek Gods also feature some familiar symbols and characters on the reels. You can expect to find several of these slots set on Mount Olympus, the home of the Gods, whilst the winged horse Pegasus may also make an appearance. You can play free demo slots from this theme at Online Slots NZ, where you can see which Gods Slots will be your favourite.
When searching for Gods Slots, you may notice that there is a crossover in many of the Greek and Roman Gods. Whilst in some cases their names may be slightly different, their power means the same thing. This is due to the notion of Greek Gods being adopted by the Romans and Greek names such as Zeus and Poseidon being replaced by the Roman versions of Jupiter and Neptune, among others.
For this reason, you may find that many slots categorised more specifically as Greek Gods Slots will also appear in the Roman Gods section. Instead, this sub-category is more known for their emperors and gladiators with slots such as RTG’s Caesar’s Empire, GameART’s Caligula, both Betsoft and Playtech’s versions of Gladiator and Spartacus Call to Arms by WMS.
The Egyptian theme is one of the most popular, with each slot in this section being instantly recognisable due to common symbols. Pharaohs, the sphinx, pyramids and hieroglyphics often appear, yet the real excitement begins when the Egyptian Gods are introduced.
You will find the Gods Horus with the head of a falcon, Anubis with the head of a jackal and possibly the most recognisable of all the Egyptian Gods, Ra, who appears with the head of a falcon and a sun disk cobra headdress. Ra is a popular addition to many slots, including Push Gaming’s Blaze of Ra, iSoftBet’s Scrolls of Ra and the highly popular Novomatic slot Book of Ra. Several other slots are based on the Egyptian Gods, with Yggdrasil’s Valley of the Gods, Playtech’s Cat Queen and Genesis Gaming’s Gods of Giza being just a few.
One of the Gods themes which has seen a rise in popularity recently is that of Vikings and Norse mythology, partly due to the appearance of Thor in our cinemas. Whilst Playtech’s The Avengers includes the Norse God of Thunder in film form, other slots focus solely on him and the other Gods from his time. This includes his brother Loki, the God of Mischief, and their father Odin, the God of Wisdom and ruler of Asgard. You may find appearances from these Gods in Playson’s Viking Gods Thor and Loki, Merkur’s Odin, Bally Wulff’s Thors Hammer and Genesis Gaming’s Ragnarok.
In addition to the Gods found in Greek and Norse mythology, among others, some slots also feature God in a more traditional sense. There’s aren’t too many, with those touching on the subject more likely to portray the devil instead. Some slots included in this category are Live 5 Gaming’s Stairway to Heaven, Betsoft’s Good Girl Bad Girl and Microgaming’s Lucky Little Gods. You can play IGT demo slots, which include Noah’s Ark.
