Many ancient civilizations had a variety of gods and goddesses, each of whom governed a certain aspect of life or activity. There were deities governing work, romance, health, success, good fortune, victory in war, and countless other things.
The civilizations that honoured such deities might have long disappeared - or at least changed their outlook - but their gods and goddesses have never been forgotten. Today, those gods and goddesses of old are often featured as larger-than-life characters in comic books and movies. They also show up in quite a few 'god slots'. Here are a few of our favourites…
Age of the Gods
Age of the Gods is a five-reel slot with twenty pay lines. Released in 2016 by Playtech
, this game takes place on Mount Olympus and features six of the biggest names in Greek mythology: Aphrodite, Hades, Hercules, Athena, Poseidon, and Zeus. All of those deities appear as higher-value symbols, along with a Greek helmet, while the playing card ranks of Q, K, and A serve as lower-value symbols.
An Age of the Gods logo is a scatter symbol. Land three or more of them anywhere, and you'll trigger the Age of the Gods Bonus game. Twenty golden coins appear on the screen. Pick coins to reveal a god hidden behind each one. As soon as you match three gods of the same type, you'll launch their associated free spins feature. Each god brings his or her own special power to help you win more.
There are four progressive jackpots that can be won in this game, so if the gods take a shine to you, there are plenty of opportunities for you to win big.

Valley of the Gods
We travel from the top of Mount Olympus in Ancient Greece to the Valley of the Gods in Ancient Egypt for our next game. This is a five-by-five grid slot that was released in 2017 by Yggdrasil, and it opens with a stunning CGI sequence that sets the scene very nicely indeed. Symbols in this game include six Egyptian symbols and four Egyptian gods.
The game grid is flanked by stone statues of Horus and Anubis. Although the grid measures five by five, scarab beetles initially block twelve positions. Spin the reels, and if you win a prize, the winning symbols will transform into golden scarabs and release one block each. The reels will then respin, and the higher number of playable positions will give you more ways to win.
Uncover all of the scarab blocks, and you'll have 3,125 ways to win on subsequent respins. In addition, the two statues will come to life to give you multipliers and extra lives. Those lives allow the respins to keep coming even if you happen to get a losing respin, and the multipliers will help you to land a bigger prize when you get a winning respin.

War of Gods
It would be a big mistake to think that deities all get along. If you want evidence of that, you need only play War of Gods. This is a five-reel slot that was released - to much acclaim - by Red Tiger Gaming
in 2021. It boasts superb visuals and a rich cinematic soundtrack, both of which perfectly suit the epic battle between Zeus and Hades that the game portrays.
The playing card suits of clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades will land you lower-value prizes. Medium-value symbols are a scroll, horn, shield, and helmet. As you'd expect, higher-value symbols are various representations of Hades, Zeus, or the two gods combined.
There is no free spins round in this game. Instead, you can trigger three different features of a more confrontational nature. Land two Zeus symbols to trigger Wrath of Zeus, two Hades symbols to trigger Hades Hellfire, or both Zeus and Hades to trigger Warring Gods. The first two of those features boast Upgrade symbols and Expand symbols, respectively, and Warring Gods is the best feature of the three because it has both types of symbols.

Slot fans who enjoy simpler fare would do well to take a look at a game called Egypt Gods. This is a five-reel game with nine pay lines that was released in 2016 by Evoplay Entertainment. Set deep in the heart of a well-lit Egyptian pyramid, the symbols on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K, and A, three Egyptian gods, and the Eye of Horus. A landscape symbol showing a camel sat in front of three pyramids serves as a scatter.
Get three or more scatter symbols on the reels at the same time, and a Free Spins feature will be launched. Here you will enjoy 10 free spins. Before they begin, one regular symbol will be selected at random to serve as an Expanding symbol throughout. That means it will expand to fill its reel whenever it appears. Land another three or more scatters at any point, and you'll get more free spins.

Power of Thor Megaways
Last, but by no means least, is Power of Thor Megaways. This is a 2021 slot from Pragmatic Play that focuses squarely on the god of thunder from Norse mythology. The game has six reels and features the Megaways mechanic from Big Time Gaming. That means that you'll have a different number of ways to win with every spin, with the maximum being 117,649.
Symbols include the playing card ranks of 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A, as well as four characters, with Thor being the most valuable of all. This game has cartoon-style visuals, but that is balanced by a hammer-heavy orchestral soundtrack which gives it a nice sense of weight.
Land a special Hammer symbol (which is two positions wide) on the topmost row, and all symbols below will be turned into wilds. Land 4 or more scatter symbols, and you will enjoy at least 10 and as many as 30 free spins with a multiplier that increases after every tumble.
