ACHILLES SLOT REVIEW | REALTIME GAMING
Realtime Gaming has certainly created its fair share of mythology-themed games and Achilles is one of those that started the trend. An older game with a lot of outdated features, Achilles has been around long enough to have made a few millionaires and this is not just because of its progressive jackpot, which has been known to get to amounts that are staggering to say the least. A really high fixed jackpot of 10 000 also makes it an impressive one to play and with the bonus round, the game will certainly keep you interested, if not entirely engrossed. Is it slightly out of date? Yes. Is it still worth playing? Yes.

The RTG team did an excellent job of creating this video slot at a time when online gaming had not yet peaked and though by today’s standards it leaves a lot to be desired, it will still give players a solid gaming experience. The game features 20 paylines and five reels with bets that are not fixed, so you can wager as low as you feel comfortable with or increase the size of your bet to the maximum limit. The symbols add to the feel of the game and you’ll have no problem identifying such iconic mythological items as the Trojan horse, the Greek shields and Helen of Troy.
Achilles, as the wild symbol, is one to keep an eye on since he’ll appear to help you complete winning combinations in your search for the fixed jackpot, but if you’re hoping to win the top fixed jackpot of 10 000 coins, you’ll need to get this old age hero to appear five times on an active payline, which will be no easy feat. However, the game does offer enough bonus features to keep it interesting even if you don’t win the jackpot on your first spin. The bonus game can be accessed when you find three or more of the scatter symbols, which are depicted in the beautiful face of Helen of Troy.
In the bonus round, you’ll need to pick one of the images of Achilles to reveal a number of free spins. There is a cap on those free spins of 25 but when these are active, you’ll notice that the scatters all transform into wilds which means you could complete winning combinations during your free spins round. The game’s progressive is randomly triggered so that’s one you won’t need to worry about. As long as you keep playing, that progressive could be yours at any time.
There is a lot about this game that you will enjoy, even if you prefer some of the more modern releases from RTG, but the length of play you experience will probably be very short indeed. While the game is a staple in most casinos and has a lot of good features, it simply can’t match up to the more modern games released by RTG in the last few years, and in 2015 specifically. The game’s saving feature is the progressive though, which has the potential to climb very high before being won and if you are chasing a win, this is a great game to do it with. However, if you’re hoping for non-stop entertainment, Achilles is a little too old-fashioned to deliver.
