One of the most talked-about new online pokies that New Zealanders can enjoy playing in June 2021 is the new Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways online pokie from Triple Edge Studios. It’s the sequel to the Ancient Fortunes: Zeus online pokie, which first arrived in casinos back in April 2019. Both games were developed exclusively for Microgaming, which means that you can enjoy playing right now at several trusted Kiwi online casinos, such as Casino.com and Jackpot City Casino.
The new Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways online pokie has 6 regular reels along the bottom and 1 upper reel that spins horizontally above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and with each spin that you take, there can be up to 117,649 different ways to win. The top coin prize up for grabs during the Free Spins Bonus is worth a cool 10,000x times your total stake, and you can play from as little as NZ$0.40 per spin up to a maximum of NZ$40.00 per spin.
The three most important symbols to keep an eye out for as you spin the reels are the Trident Wild Symbols and the four different Scatter Symbols (the letters G, O, L, and D). Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols can both land in any position across the reels, and the only symbols the Wild Symbols cannot substitute are the Scatter Symbols. Each time a new line win forms, the Rolling Reels game engine will kick into action.
It sees winning symbols that are currently in view being removed from the reels, which then causes the same amount of new symbols to roll down from above and fill the empty positions. If another winning combo forms, then another free ‘roll’ will be awarded, and the reels will only stop rolling when there are no more new wins in view. Each time a Wild Symbol lands, it will also be collected for you in the Treasure Chest that’s always located next to reel 1 (the leftmost reel).
To gain entry to the Free Spins Bonus, you need to land all four Scatter Symbols anywhere in view (spelling out the word ‘GOLD). Each time this happens, you will be awarded a minimum guaranteed bonus of 12 Free Spins. Better still, Rolling Reels remain active throughout the feature, plus an Increasing Multiplier can also help generate some really big wins for you.
After collecting a sufficient number of Wild Symbols during normal play or the Free Spins Bonus, the Jackpot Picking Bonus will eventually trigger. All you have to do during this fun side game is click on the Gold Coins (from a grid of 12 coins) to reveal hidden Jackpot Symbols. Match 3, and you will instantly be awarded the corresponding jackpot.
The smallest jackpot, the Mini Jackpot, is worth just 15X times your total stake. You then have the Minor Jackpot at 50X times your total stake. The Major Jackpot is worth 100X, and the Mega Jackpot is worth a cool 5,000X.
