Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot Game
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot Introduction
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways - released in May 2021 - is the innovation of frequent Microgaming collaborator, Triple Edge Studios. The Greek Mythology-themed online slot game we’re looking at today is inspired not by Zeus as is usually the case, but by his brother Poseidon, the god of the seas, typhoons, storms, shipwrecks… you get the idea. The point is to expect a thrilling watery adventure filled with jackpots, free spins, and more when Poseidon is on the reels!

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot Game Background
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways is the direct thematic follow-up to Triple Edge Studios' Ancient Fortunes: Zeus slot from April 2019. The developer was looking for a candidate for their next Megaways title, but rather than re-vamp Ancient Fortunes: Zeus, they opted to create a Megaways sequel featuring Zeus’ rather wet behind the ears (you know, because he’s Poseidon) younger brother. While Ancient Fortunes: Zeus boasted a 5-reel, 3-row, 10 paylines set-up, the Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways slot offers the now standard 117,649 ways to win alongside other exciting features and design mechanics usually found in Megaways slots.
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot Game Design
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways is a 6-reel online slot game with anywhere between 2 - 7 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. As is also usual in Megaways slots, the game has an extra horizontal reel that in this game sits above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the main game grid. The slot also offers 117,649 paylines and a potential maximum payout of 10,000x the stake.
The in-game screen is quite busy with a lot of the real estate being taken up by the game grid and graphics detailing the Mini, Minor, Major and Mega Jackpot amounts, not to mention a large gold-filled treasure chest in the bottom-left corner.
The slot's setting is Poseidon’s watery domain, which is by all accounts very colourful. There are glimpses of a vast underwater temple and tall Greek columns behind the reels. Shoals of fish swim along the ocean floor while air bubbles drift upwards. The main game grid takes up most of the in-game screen and is set into the side of what appears to be a temple. Above this sits the extra horizontal reel, and above this, the Megaways counter. Meanwhile, the jackpot graphics occupy most of the left-hand side of the screen. Symbols - housed in turquoise-coloured squares - comprise a wide assortment of gems, gold masks, minotaur heads, and more. Curiously, there are no royal playing card symbols in this slot.
The slot has an ominous-sounding music score whether spinning the reels or not; this is accompanied by various ambient sounds when spinning the reels, including crunching/exploding noises during a successful avalanche/tumble/cascade.

Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways Slot Bonus Features
Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways offers a few bonuses and features sure to get the excitement levels going!
Rolling Reels Feature
If you’ve played other Megaways slots, you’ll be familiar with the Avalanche or Cascading Reels feature. Here it’s called the Rolling Reels feature, but the idea is the same. All symbols in winning combinations explode and disappear from the reels, making room for symbols from above. The Rolling Reels feature continues until no more winning combinations appear. Finally, the Rolling Reels feature is active in both the base game and the Free Spins bonus round.
Jackpot Pick Feature
Players can potentially win the Mini, Minor or Major Jackpots in both the base game and in the Free Spins bonus round. These have the following payouts:
- Mini Jackpot = 30x the total bet staked.
- Minor Jackpot = 100x the total bet staked.
- Major Jackpot = 200x the total bet staked.
- Mega Jackpot = 10,000x the total bet staked.
The way the feature is triggered is this: any Wild symbols that land during the Rolling Reels are collected in the extra horizontal reel above the game grid. At the end of the Rolling Reels feature, there is a chance that the Jackpot Pick feature triggers. The more Wild symbols that are collected in the horizontal reel, the greater the chances of triggering the feature.
At the start of the feature, 12 tokens are shown face down. Pick one to reveal either a Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega jackpot token. A total of 3 matching jackpot tokens award the corresponding jackpot. Jackpot wins are multiplied by the total bet. The feature then ends.
Free Spins Feature
The feature is triggered by landing 4 Scatter symbols in view. This awards a total of 12 Free Spins. Each additional Scatter grants an additional 5 Free Spins.
The Free Spins feature also incorporates a win multiplier that starts at 1x and increases by +1 with every Rolling Reels roll.
During the Free Spins feature as well, Scatter symbols only appear on the extra horizontal reel. Landing 3 or 4 Scatter symbols in said horizontal reel awards 5 and 10 Free Spins respectively.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to the maximum 117,649 ways to win!
