About This Slot

Parthenon Quest for Immortality is an atmospheric Ancient Greek-themed slot from Net Ent, building on the success of Pyramid Quest for Immortality, an Egyptian-themed slot with a similar playing style. In addition to the big Multipliers and Avalanche feature, this Ancient Greek adventure also includes a Free Spins round.

The backdrop to the main game features a classic Greek building with stone pillars, along with views from Mount Olympus with Zeus to the left side of the reels holding a lightning bolt, while a sentry stands guard to the right and clouds float behind. The sound track is powerfully dramatic to add to the intense atmosphere.

RTP, Variance and Top Payout

NetEnt have already released one game with gargantuan paylines (close to 100,000) in Spring 2021 with their Dazzle Me Megaways™ slot. And here they come again – instead of regular paylines, you’ll find an incredible 10,000 ways to win with 3 or more matching symbols required on adjacent reels to trigger a payout. There are 6 reels laid out with an extra row at the top of the screen, which is the Wild Generation Zone, creating a 4-5-5-5-5-4 formation.

The 96.2% RTP is perfectly average, while a medium to high volatility rating gives a slightly bumpy ride, allowing for some potentially impressive wins. The 20p minimum bet isn’t the lowest around but should be playable for most pockets. Higher rollers have the potential to win up to 60,000x stake by triggering the biggest Multipliers during the Free Spins round.

Symbols and Graphics

The symbols in Parthenon Quest for Immortality have a strong Hellenic vibe, including mythological characters Medusa and Pegasus, along with tridents, snakes, warships and high cards written in angular font. The best symbol is the snake-haired Medusa, which can award 40x stake for 6 of a kind.

The Wild is the Olympian eternal flame, which can substitute for the other symbols. The Scatter is the Free Spins symbol, which can be collected during the Free Spins round to re-trigger the round.

This game has a huge potential, bigger than most NetEnt’s current new slot releases, with the biggest payout possible during the Free Spins round where 20x Multipliers can be activated, which could lead to the top prize of 60,000x!

  Gameplay can feel repetitive

Gameplay and Features

Partheon Quest for Immortality comes with a decent set of features but nothing particularly new or innovative that we haven’t seen on other slots before now. The Avalanche Wins crop up everywhere nowadays, and of course, as ever its all about hitting the free spins round if you want to win big.

Avalanche feature

Instead of spinning reels, the symbols fall down in an avalanche. When symbols form part of a winning combination, they disappear and a new Avalanche is triggered, causing more symbols to cascade down. This gives multiple chances to win from one spin.

Wilds

The Wild is the Olympian eternal flame, which substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter to create more potential wins. Wilds don’t award a payout on their own, but they can land anywhere on the reels and also be created in the Wild Generation Zone.

Wild Generation Zone

There is a special top row of icons in this game. If symbols from this row feature in a winning combination, instead of disappearing as part of the Avalanche feature, they turn into Wilds which can be used to create more winning combinations.

Free Spins

Hitting 3 or more Scatters will activate 8 Free Spins with each additional Scatter adding 4 more Free Spins. During this round, if you collect 3 Scatters, you’ll trigger 2 more Free Spins.

The key here is that a Free Spins Multiplier is also activated during the bonus round. This awards a 1x Multiplier which increases by 1x whenever a symbol transforms into a Wild as part of the Wild Generation Zone feature.  The maximum Multiplier value here is 20x. This is still enough to seriously enhance the win potential of this game.

Our Verdict

Parthenon Quest for Immortality has an immersive atmosphere with a dramatically grand soundtrack and classic imagery from Ancient Greek mythology. Medusa, Pegasus and Zeus all appear here, while the background and styling make this perfect for fans of ancient cultural themes. The gameplay is very similar to Pyramid Quest for Immortality, Net Ent’s Ancient Egyptian version, but with the added bonus of a Free Spins round, which is where the main action is centred – and where the biggest payouts occur. The 20x Multipliers allow for a 60,000x stake prize, which is impressive although it can’t compete with Net Ent’s Rome: The Golden Age with its 100,000x jackpot. But for all things Hellenic, Parthenon Quest for Immortality offers a dreamy, classic atmosphere that overcomes the slightly repetitive feel of the gameplay. Continue the quest for immortality in early June 2021.
