By the beard of Zeus, these ancient Greek slots are literally the games of the gods! From land-based legends to dark and dramatic titles, Cluster Pays, Megaways and more, our Alpha to Zeta of online slots with an ancient Greece theme truly has it all – including a special bonus slot with a whopping 99% RTP!

What are Greek slots?

On one level, Ancient Greece describes the 1,000 year period in the North Mediterranean where civilisation was born. From Alexander The Great and the Spartans to Homer, Plato and Aristotle, Ancient Greece had everything, from famous wars to the earliest and most influential examples of poetry, politics, philosophy, literature, theatre and astronomy.

But what slots providers really like about the ancient Greeks is their mythology, because gods, goddesses, heroes and quests are the perfect back story for online slots. From the 12 Greek gods who lived on Mount Olympus like Apollo, Zeus, Aphrodite and Athena to mythical creatures like centaurs, giants, Medusa and Pegasus, and heroes like Achilles and Jason (of Argonauts fame), ancient Greek mythology is a favourite theme for slots providers, video game designers and movie producers.

OJO’s Top 10 Ancient Greek Slots

Our rundown of the most popular Greek slot machines you can play for real money online spans the early days of videos right up to the newest Greek slots, plus titles from the best slot providers in the UK. Let’s begin!

Rise of Olympus

Rise of Olympus slot

Play’n GO’s Rise of Olympus slot is a high volatility cluster pays slot, with slick graphics, a clutch of reel modifiers delivered literally by the hand of god, a Wrath of God meter that triggers one of three Free Spins bonus rounds, and a 5,000x maximum win. That’s why this 2018 release is still considered the top Greek slot on the block.

Gates of Olympus

Gates of Olympus slot

Whatever Play’n GO can do, we can do better! That must be what Pragmatic Play had in mind when they developed their Gates of Olympus slot, another high variance slot in the Ancient Greek genre. Although the similarities are undeniable, Gates of Olympus is a 6-reel ‘Pays Anywhere’ slot with cascading symbols and multipliers of up to 500x.

Age of the Gods

Age of the Gods slot

There are over 30 online slots in Playtech’s Age of Gods series, but we still love the original, released in 2016. Featuring Athena, Zeus, Poseidon, Hercules, Aphrodite and Hermes, Age of Gods is a 20 line Greek slot famous for its Age of Gods bonus, a picker game that leads to a choice of Free Games with a wide range of modifiers and multipliers. And then there’s the Age of Gods Jackpot, a bonus feature with four progressives up for grabs including a six-figure Ultimate Power pot.

Zeus III

Zeus III slot

The jewel in the Williams Interactive’s Zeus slots series, Zeus 3 is an unusual 192 Ways slot with a 2-3-4-5-6-7 reel configuration. In design terms, all of their Zeus slots hark back to the days of legendary land-based Greek slots, but we are not here for the ancient graphics. We’re here for the Wild Reels, 50 Free Spins and 96.10% RTP.

Hoard of Poseidon

Hoard of Poseidon slot

If you liked Pirates Plenty Sunken Treasure, then you’ll enjoy Hoard of Poseidon, as the two Red Tiger slots share much more than just a nautical theme. Hoard of Poseidon is a low-medium variance slot, an increasing rarity these days. This 30 payline slot machine has top drawer graphics and a slew of Wild-flavoured features, plus a Daily Jackpot or three to play for. Though Poseidon was the Greek god of the sea, there isn’t much of Ancient Greece in this Hoard of Poseidon slot, but it’s a spear-cial subsea adventure all the same.

Divine Fortune

Divine Fortune slot

NetEnt’s Divine Fortune slot is a legend not just among Greek slot machines, or even mythology slots, but among all online slot machines. Released in 2017, it has 20 win lines and a more classical Greek design than other games in the Ancient Greek slots category.

As well as the less common symbol choice of Medusa, Minotaur and Pegasus, NetEnt chose Falling Wild Respins, Free Spins with Wild on Wild and perhaps best known of all, the triple jackpot bonus feature with a Mega progressive pot that has paid out multiple prizes of over £100,000.

Midas Golden Touch

Midas Golden Touch slot

In Greek mythology, everything King Midas touched turned to gold, so you can see why slots providers would seize on that metaphor for a slot machine! It’s no secret that Thunderkick is one of our favourite slots providers, and with this 2019 effort, they have struck .

Design is one of Thunderkick’s many superpowers, and the Midas Golden Touch slot’s graphics and sounds give it a slightly Game of Thrones vibe. Thanks to the game’s wilds – which come with multipliers of up to 32x depending on how many you spin – and a Free Games bonus round with sticky respins, you can win up to 10,100x. And its RTP of 96.10% is among the top Greek slots RTPs.

Legend of Athena

Legend of Athena slot

A fresh cut from Red Tiger in 2021, Legend of Athena is another well-crafted high volatility Greek slot. The Wild symbol is the main draw here. Referred to as the Sword of Athena, the special Wild adds a 3x multiplier to all wins. There’s a twist in the Free Spins feature too. Land 3 scatters and you’ll trigger 12 Free Spins where all wins are 3x, and any additional scatters award another 3 spins. Look out for the jackpot symbol, as 3 or more will take you into Red Tiger’s Daily Jackpots feature, where you can win Mega, Daily or Hourly progressives.

Golden Goddess

Golden Goddess slot

Like many former land-based slots IGT has transformed into a hit online slot, this 2013 classic has a very old school, almost Rainbow Riches feel. Its features have stood the test of time. The Super Stacks deliver stacks of the same symbol on each reel, and if you fill reels 2, 3 and 4 with roses, you’ll pick a rose to reveal which symbol will be Super Stacked on every one of the subsequent 7 Free Spins. The original Golden Goddess slot is a nice low-medium variance ride, but if you want to jack up that volatility, there’s a MegaJackpots version.

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways slot

There are 3 online slots in the Ancient Fortunes series from Triple Edge Studios, and their Ancient Fortunes Poseidon Megaways slot is a far cry from the other slots in our list of best Greek slots. For starters, there’s a lot more vibrant colour than above-ground Greek slots.

As well as up to 117,649 Ways and their Rolling Reels (aka cascading symbols or avalanche), there’s an extra reel like the one you find in Bonanza, a Free Spins feature with rolling multipliers and a picker bonus round with four fixed jackpots with a 5,000x Mega the top prize, that’s more likely to trigger the more wilds you spin. It may not look much like other Greek casino games but it has all the hallmarks of a top title in the ancient Greece genre.

Bonus pick: Book of 99

Bonus pick: Book of 99 slot

This Relax Gaming release from 2021 has flown under the radar for now, but let’s fix that right now! You’ll immediately notice the unusual mythical characters that set it apart from other Greek slots online, and another thing that elevates this slot is its insane 99% Return To Player. You can trigger the main Free Spins feature with scatters, or you can collect 99 wilds during your session to fill up the meter on the left and you’ll trigger 10 Free Spins with expanding wilds.
