Swintt’s game Perseus Slot, launched in early 2019 and updated in the summer of 2020, features five fixed Paylines and you play it on a regular 5×3 grid. It’s based on the hero of Greek mythology who killed the Gorgon Medusa and was the son of Zeus and Danae, so he’s a half-deity. He also killed other monsters, and rescued Andromeda from the sea beast Cetus.
Here, the Greek prepares to go into battle with a good-looking female warrior with flowing locks, as they aim to track down the lucrative golden lion’s head symbol.
How to play
Perseus Slot has a minimum bet of 0.05 and a maximum bet of just 2. Winning combinations pay out, as you’d expect, from left to right, with the highest combo per Payline shelling out.
All the controls you’d expect to see are here, including Autoplay, which you can set for up to 500 free spins should you wish; there’s also a Quick Stop option to stop the reels from turning.
The standard playing-card values join the more rewarding theme-related regular icons, including an urn, female warrior and helmets. The feathered helmet is the most lucrative of the standard symbols. (Interestingly, Perseus himself is not a symbol here).
The Scatter is a golden lion’s head, and it also serves as the Wild symbol. It does the usual Wild thing of replacing all symbols bar the Lucky icons, which are explained in more detail below.
The Scatter/Wild behaves independently from the Paylines.
In the usual way, the Scatter is your passport to this round. Scoop three to trigger a tidy 10 freebies, or feature games as this operator likes to call them.
A Lucky symbol is chosen at the start of each free spin – and it can expand to take up a whole reel. It will pay out on an active Payline as long as you hit the minimum number of combos.
Play this after winning a round. Click on it to gamble your win from your last wager in a risk game. You can also bet latest winnings in a card risk game which is a simple colour prediction affair. Play up to nine times; it’s a double or lose everything feature, and while you’re playing it, the RTP is 100%.
You won’t find a progressive jackpot here. Maximum win, however, is a hefty 100,000x stake.
Return to Player
You should find variance in this game lies somewhere in the middle of the range. RTP or Return to Player with this operator tends to be on the low side, and Perseus is no exception at 95.3%, or slightly below the industry average.
Perseus Slot certainly isn’t the only slot game out there that’s based on Greek mythology. But if the power of Zeus smiles on you, you should find you could win big. In common with most Swintt games, it’s a pretty straightforward offering and not overladen with numerous extra features. Equally, it may not be the best game for you if you insist on super-stunning visuals.
