Divine Riches Helios
Helios wants a word with you. You know, Helios, the sun god. He’s invited you to his heavenly home to give you a chance to earn his favour in Divine Riches Helios. It’s the latest Greek mythology themed slot by Just For The Win, in association with Microgaming. If you enjoy slots about gods, Divine Riches Helios is possibly one of the best slots on Spin Casino yet, with Helios symbols that pay both ways, potentially massive Blazing Bonus and a free spins feature that comes with its own unique feature: The Hand of Helios. Give it a whirl here at Spin Casino!
Theme and gameplay basics
Divine Riches Helios is a Greek mythology slot centred on Helios, the sun god. The action unreels on a 5x4 grid set against the serene, uncluttered backdrop of a blue sky. A few white clouds drift in the distance. Presumably we’re either looking down from Mount Olympus or soaring with Helios in his chariot. The reels are framed by white pillars, as a tribute to Greek culture. To the left of the reels, Helios stands proudly underneath his logo, with the sun at his back and the Blazing Bonus meter below him. It looks like he’s been spending more time working out than playing the lyre, because he’s seriously ripped!
To find out whether Helios is actually going to light up that Bonus meter and favour us with his riches, it’s necessary to set an initial bet, at a cost ranging from 0.20 to 50 credits a spin. Once you’ve made up your mind and the reels are in motion, the idea is to capture prize-awarding symbol combinations. Divine Riches Helios has 30 paylines that award prizes from the leftmost position toward the right, with one important exception (see below!). The biggest prize you can win is the Divine Jackpot, worth 5,000 x your stake. As far as platforms go, Spin Casino offers you the choice of a desktop version and a mobile casino version that you can play in portrait or landscape mode on your tablet or smartphone.
Symbols played an important part in ancient Greek culture. Even the gods themselves were symbols of a kind. The lower value symbols that fall into view on the reels of Divine Riches Helios may not be associated with the classical world, being playing card suits (Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades), but the higher value symbols definitely are. From lowest to highest, they are olives, urns, lyres, chariots, a purple horse with a Mohican hairstyle and the big guy himself, Helios, who awards 10x your bet for five of a kind. Importantly, Helios symbols also pay both ways. Alongside these, you’ll also see wild symbols, which follow standard wild procedure and substitute for all regulars, plus scatter symbols labelled “Free Spins”. But there’s also a bit of divine mystery floating about in the form of Bonus Tokens, which hold the key to the Blazing Bonus feature.
Special features and bonuses
About those Bonus Tokens. Any time they land, they can randomly trigger the Blazing Bonus feature. You’re transported to a new screen where 16 wheel-like symbols appear. Helios, now with blazing eyes and backed by fiery winged horses, watches as you try to pick three matching Big, Major, Mega or Divine symbols, which award 15x, 40x, 200x and 5,000x your stake respectively.
Less randomly, Divine Riches Helios also has a free spins feature that awards 8, 12 or 16 free spins when 3, 4 or 5 scatters fall into view in any position. Helios symbols that land during any free spin are collected. If you collect 12, the sun god will ignite the Hand of Helios feature: All higher value symbols upgrade to the next most valuable symbol, with two extra free spins thrown in.
Microgaming and Just for the Win
Divine Riches Helios was conceived by the big brains over at Just for The Win, an associate of Microgaming (the casino software company that produced the first online gambling games in 1994). The success of this strategy can be gauged by the excellence of Just for the Win slots such as Rockabilly Wolves and Western Gold 2. Try them for yourself here at Spin Casino!
