Didn’t we all enjoy Pyramid: Quest for Immortality Touch® when launched in 2015? I seriously enjoyed the video slot for its slot feature, including the exciting Avalanche feature. In 2021, the Quest for Immortality Touch® series expanded with another mobile slot offering a Quest for Immortality. Parthenon: Quest for Immortality Touch® doesn’t transfer you to Ancient Egypt, though, but to Ancient Greece! You’ll have the chance to discover one of Athens’ most impressive historical structures, as well as some of NetEnt’s best mobile slot features.
Ancient Greece’s historical gems
When you get a chance to walk through the historical city centre of Athens, it’s hard not to notice a collection of historical structures, so majestically flaunting on the rocky outcrop above the city. Wherever you walk in Athens, the chance you see the structures popping up is always there.
Obviously, it’s the Parthenon I’m talking about. A temple that used to be the centre of religious life in the capital of Greece. Completed in 438 B.C., it was a symbol of the power, wealth and elevated culture of Athens. The Greeks built the temple as the largest and most lavish temple Greek had ever seen.
The Turks ruled Greece for centuries and the Acropolis became a combat zone with Turkish Army removing hundreds of marble blocks from Parthenon ruins. The Turks used the lead-coated iron clamps that hold the blocks together to make bullets. The Greeks fought for their independence for many centuries and managed in the 1820s.
Despite the fact that it’s an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and one of the country’s national treasures, it took the Greek a while to start its restoration. In the 1970s, the Greek government got serious about restoring the rapidly-deteriorating Acropolis and the Parthenon.
Today, you will still find scaffolding all around. Still, the Parthenon will not be restored to its original glory. Instead, it will stay a partial ruin and will feature design elements and artefacts that reflect its rich, diverse history.
When you open Parthenon: Quest for Immortality Touch®, you get a chance to witness the historical structure in its original glory. Take the time to see the true beauty behind this online casino slot. And when I say, the beauty behind…., I mean the beauty behind it!
Parthenon Touch® design
Besides the fact that Parthenon: Quest for Immortality Touch® offers an enjoyable gameplay, NetEnt didn’t hesitate to put efforts into its design. And of course, the historical temple has an important role to play in this Greek-themed mobile slot.
It seems NetEnt used the Old Temple of Athena to place the 6 reels involved in the gameplay. This temple was built around 525 BC and stood between the Parthenon and the Erechtheum.
The Parthenon temple, however, is available in this NetEnt Touch® game, but you must look further than you’re used to from a video slot. It’s like in real life when you visit a historical structure and you’re too busy showing off to your Instagram followers. You take your time to take in the beauty of a building as old as the Parthenon, you feel the ancient ambience and you can even almost feel the effects it had on the history of Greece.
Parthenon: Quest for Immortality Touch® features
Parthenon: Quest for Immortality Touch® isn’t particularly packed with slot features. It’s the Wild Generation Zone feature that’s in the spotlights. No matter if the main game or Free Spins feature, the Wild Generation Zone adds a lot of excitement to the ancient-themed reels.
While the Wild Generation Zone makes sure Parthenon: Quest for Immortality® is a game you must try, it’s the Avalanche feature that confirms it. It was Gonzo’s Quest Touch® that introduced this slot feature. This mobile slot feature won in popularity over the years, especially since the popular Megaways engine is often combined with the same type of slot feature.
Wild Generation Zone feature
It’s the top row that’s the Wild Generation Zone and any symbol that ends up in this zone, while part of a winning combination, transforms into a Wild symbol. The Wild remains on the reels until they disappear as part of a winning combo or until the next spin.
A winning combination forms when three or more symbols appear on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel. Medusa forms an exception as two symbols from the leftmost reel award a win already.
It’s not the first NetEnt mobile slot offering the Avalanche™ feature. The Avalanche™ feature has become a phenomenon and now again you can enjoy the feature in Parthenon: Quest for Immortality Touch®. This time combined with the Wild Generation Zone that turn every main game spin into an exciting adventure where a twist of fate can lead to multiple wins in a single spin.
As usual, the Avalanche™ feature takes place after a winning combination appears on the reels. The symbols involved with a winning combination will then disappear. The open spaces left behind are filled up with new symbols, ready for the next avalanche. Avalanches continue until there are no more wins.
Free Spins feature
Free Spins in Parthenon: Quest for immortality Touch® have a progressive Multiplier of up to x20 that increases with each Wild appearing on the reels and Scatter symbols that award additional Free Spins.
You first need 3 Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels in the main game to activate 8 Free Spins. Each additional Free Spin symbol on the 6 reels, and involved in the activation of the Free Spins feature, awards 4 additional Free Spins. You receive another 2 Free Spins during the feature for each time the Scatter Meter reaches 3.
