Age of the Gods

Age of the Gods is one of Playtech’s best-known original slot games, themed around Greek mythology, and played across a classic 5x3 grid. This game offers four different bonus modes, each themed around a deity or legend, such as Hercules, Athena, Zeus and Poseidon. Bonus rounds activated through the deities’ symbols launch free game modes, and there is also a progressive jackpot feature available at four different levels.

Second Strike

Second Strike is a simple 5x3 slot game themed around fruit and gems, with 10 paylines available in the base game. The title’s eponymous feature, the Second Strike, adds extra symbols onto the reels in play depending on where the outer wheel stops – if it lands on the symbol that’s just won in the base game, up to 10 extra symbols are added.

Jackpot Giant

Jackpot Giant features the titular Giant and a series of crystals and stones that players need to line up across 20 different paylines on a 5x3 grid. Alongside payline-boosting wild symbols, players can also look out for the mystery bonus feature, which appears when they line up enough of the Giant’s hands in play – this creates cash prizes. There’s also a volcano-themed Giant Bonus round, where players can pick a win from an eruption of their choice.

Superman II

Based on the classic movie of the same name, Superman II is one of several 5x3 games in the Playtech library with official licences. Superman himself appears randomly during play to turn symbols into wilds, and there are five extra bonus features that players can unlock. For example, in the X-Ray Vision free spins round, players can add extra wilds to the reels while they use up a stock of free games.

Tiki Paradise

This tiki-themed game is a 5x3 title with a stacked wilds feature that turns any of its five reels into completely wild columns. The slot also carries a ‘Hi Roller’ feature to change up game mechanics such as the frequency of when free spins rounds appear. In the base game, players must look out for free spins symbols on the reels to activate the bonus.

Green Lantern

Another DC Comics title, Playtech’s exclusive Green Lantern slot game offers four jackpot opportunities in-game, achievable at any time. The game also serves up three separate superhero missions, including free spins with multipliers, free spins with wilds, and free spins with wild stacks. It’s a 5x3 game with visuals based loosely on characters from the movie and directly from the comics.
