Golden Thunder: Definitely not a Greek tragedy
Golden Thunder challenge at Paddy Power
The Greek economy may not be in the best of shape, but don't be fooled: The influence of arguably the greatest civilisation ever to emerge in Europe and the indisputable birthplace of philosophy still has a magnetic appeal to lovers of culture, history and great literature the world over. And, of course, it holds quite a bit of appeal for online slot fanatics - which is why there are several slots themed on ancient Greece, though none quite as impressive as Golden Thunder,
currently the chosen slot for a €5k points race at Paddy Power
Made by niche slot manufacturer Cayetano, it features 20 lines and 5 reels and comes an amazing free spins feature: Line up the 'free spins' icons on a winning line and you'll be treated to a huge number of freebies - up to 45 - with multipliers of up to 15.It's an impressive opportunity to score some huge wins.
Wilds come in the form of Zeus, who appears in head form on a single symbol and stretches to his full height as an expanded wild to make some decent winning lines very easy to score.
The main symbols are classical Greek ideas like thunderbolts, chalices and so on, and the reelface and background is very nicely designed and for a game that's been made by a little-known company it holds up very well against the competition, which presumably is why Paddy Power had no qualms about using it for a tournament.
The challenge ends at midnight on Tuesday 16 July and the top 30 players will win from £30 right up to £1,000, so it's well worth entering if you want a big money prize. Entering is very easy:
- Firstly, sign up at Paddy Power
- Then opt in from the competition page on the website
- You'll earn 1 point for every €1 you wager
You can track your progress on a handy leaderboard to make sure you get a decent placing, and what's more you'll get double comp points if you play this tourney on your mobile - so you can play wherever you happen to be at the weekend and actually be rewarded for it!
