The creative team at BetSoft is very good and this is the reason that they come up with compelling and intense slots. However, this slot game is a little different. This game is good, but not as high in standards as the other games by them. However, there are some features which are worth mentioning about this game. The Buy Feature is one of the most interesting features of the game. People who do not like to wait for free spins can use this feature and get instantaneous free spins with Special Symbol.
The gameplay is very basic; the title might seem deceiving in that case. The spins are slow and the graphics are quite old-fashioned. However, some of the symbols have details and they are interesting. The soundtrack is fun and is in sync with the theme of the game. However, there are no base-game features in the slot.
The game is unarguably entertaining with a good soundtrack and excellent theme and is sure to appeal to Canadian players. Ancient Greece is evoked through some basic symbols which are present in the game, including a tree, a temple, and the special Golden Owl. These symbols help in unlocking free spins. Special features help in making or breaking a slot and in this case the special features are triggered by landing 3 Golden Owls. It is possible to get to 5 scatters (20 free spins), but there is also a random Special Symbol at the beginning of each spin.
The Golden Owl of Athena is a 5-reel 3 payline slot, which comes with decent gameplay, appealing bonus feature and good soundtrack. Animation and graphics is something that is not very impressive. There could be many more interesting features in the game, but there are not. BetSoft is expected to bring in more intuitive slot games for players in the future.
