Achilles Slots is themed around the famous Greek hero Achilles. He was a warrior who fought during the Trojan War, but it was eventually discovered that he had a single weakness. This weakness was the tendon in his ankle, which is the one place where he could be hurt when attacked. Today, this tendon is still called the Achilles tendon because of the legend of Achilles.
ThemeThe themes taking place in the Achilles Slots happen before he died and when his strength was something to be feared in Ancient Greece. Achilles is an online video slot game that has a whopping 20 paylines and 5 reels. The graphics and audio of the game are pretty run-of-the-mill in comparison to other slots offered by RTG. The city of Troy is featured in the game and finds a place in the background as players spin the reels hoping to hit it big.
GameplayAchilles Slots includes icons that are in line with the central theme including the city of Troy, Achilles himself, the Trojan horse, a crest, and a shield. Also included are the symbols A, K, Q, J, 9, and 10. Achilles is the wild icon for the game and can be a substitute for any other icon in the game except the scatter symbols. Achilles also happens to be the icon that pays the most in the game. When 5 Achilles icons are on a payline and the maximum bet has been placed, a player will win 10,000 credits.
Achilles Slots also features a progressive jackpot that can be won randomly at the finish of any game. A progressive jackpot win will be included in with any other win, and a player can see how much the progressive jackpot is worth at any given time by looking the top center of their screen.
Achilles Slots include 2 free game bonus features, and one of these is 10 free bonus spins. This is awarded when 3 or more Troy icons show anywhere on the reels. Players will win two times the amount of any prize hit during the free spins feature, and 10 more free spins can be won when 3 or more Troy and/or Achilles icons show on the reels during the bonus spins.
The second bonus feature takes place when 3 or more Achilles icons show on the reels. When this feature is triggered, a player will pick 1 Achilles to win 15, 20, or 25 free spins. During this bonus feature, Troy icons become Achilles or Helen icons, and all prizes won are worth three times their normal value. This bonus can be won again during the bonus feature.
