This is a five reel online slot with twenty pay lines, wild symbols, scatters, two free spins bonus rounds and a progressive jackpot.

The twenty pay lines are adjustable and have betting values ranging from 0.01 to 5.00. These values are allowed per pay line with the maximum bet per spin being a value of 100.00. The betting range of this online slot is suitable for low, medium and high rollers alike.
The Theme and Regular Symbols
This online slot game is named after and based on an iconic Greek hero that fought in the Trojan War. He was considered one of the greatest warriors of his time and eventually succumbed to his enemy who shot him with an arrow through his heel. This was said to have been his most vulnerable part of his body and is where the term Achilles heel originates from.
The symbols found on the reels include the nine, ten, jack, queen, king and ace playing card icons which are designed to fit the theme. These are the lower valued symbols in the game. Themed symbols include Helen of Troy, the wooden Trojan horse, a shield and a banner. The shields and banners only need to appear a minimum of two times on an active pay line to pay out but the rest of the symbols must appear three or more times on an active pay line.
Special Wild and Scatter Symbols
Achilles himself represents the online slot game’s wild symbol. The wild substitutes the regular paying symbols where possible to help make up winning combinations. This is also the most valuable symbol as it will pay out the highest fixed jackpot prize of 10 000 coins when appearing five times on an active pay line with the maximum bet.
The city of Troy represents the online slot game’s scatter symbol which activates a free spins round and pays out scatter wins when appearing three, four or five times on the reels.
Two Free Spins Bonus Rounds
There are two free spins bonus rounds that can be triggered during this online slot game. The first free spins bonus round is triggered when three or more of the Troy symbols appear on the reels in any position. Ten free spins are awarded with a 2x multiplier on any free spin win. It is possible to re-trigger this round by landing another three or more of the Troy symbols, three or more of the Achilles symbols or a mix of three or more of both symbols.
The second free spins bonus round is triggered when three or more of the Achilles symbols land on the reels. One of the symbols will need to then be selected to be awarded with either fifteen, twenty or twenty five free spins. This round can be re-triggered and all winning combinations come with a 3x multiplier. If any of the Troy symbols appear they are transformed into either Helen symbols or Achilles symbols.
