Play’n GO announced Thursday a new release in its Greek Mythology saga, called Athena Ascending, a sequel to the operator’s 2020 title Rise of Athena. “More powerful than ever, Athena grants a select few her power, wisdom, and fortune. As she embodies both wisdom and war, there’s no telling what side of Athena the people of Olympus will land on,” the company said of the title’s story and theme.
The real star of Athena Ascending is the Multiplier Wilds, which stick to the reels and ascend with every spin until the Multiplier reaches x4 – “flipping the mechanic seen in Rise of Athena on its head.” Free Spins will continue so long as there’s a Wild on the reels.
“Players of Rise of Athena will see that Athena Ascending carries the same charm as its predecessor in terms of the artwork and audio, demonstrating Play’n GO’s knack to create content that stands the test of time,” the operator further commented.
Witness the ascension of Athena – the Goddess of Wisdom and War! 🏺

Charlotte Miliziano, Head of Games at Play’n GO, said: “Not only did we want to capture the essence of the original game, but we wanted to elevate mechanics, audio and visuals even further.”
“I think what’s awesome about our Greek Mythology slots is that each one of the games spotlights a new hero, narrative, and features. There is something for everyone even within a series, there’s a reason why the Play’n GO portfolio is unmatched in the industry,” she concluded.
