Last week a pair of online slot games went live at Microgaming online casinos like Lucky Nugget, Gaming Club and 7 Sultans. The slots titled Titans of the Sun deal with a generation above the more common Olympian gods and are therefore less familiar. Hyperion and Theia, the subtitles in the new slot games, are the Titan children of Gaia and Uranus. Hyperion overthrew Uranus and fathered three children with his sister Theia, including the Sun. The clan was later overthrown by the Olympians. Each slot machine has the reels in the background of the ancient Greek civilization on the shores of the blue Aegean Sea. Some of the features and payouts are different.

Hyperion is a 15 paylines slot game in the 5x3 format. Titans of the Sun logo is the wild symbol and also awards the top line payout of 5000 times the line bet. The other high paying symbols are Hyperion, the winged horse Pegasus and the phoenix. The low paying symbols are the usual Microgaming playing card icons. The Hyperion-Theia couple is the scatter symbol. The top scatter payout is 100 times the total bet. Three or more scatter symbols award 15 free spins, which can be retriggered. The highlight of the Titans of the Sun Hyperion slot game is the new Mystery Symbol. It stacks up to five symbols high on all the reels in both the base game and the free spins feature. In the base game the mystery symbols can transform into the same high symbol or low symbol. In the free spins they can also transform into the wild symbol. The maximum payout per spin is 750,000.

The Theia online slot game is structurally similar. The line payouts are lower. The wild symbol awards only 2000 times the line bet. Theia is used as a symbol instead of Hyperion. Theia awards 1000 times the line bet, whereas Hyperion awards 2000 times the line bet. The scatter payouts are the same. The maximum payout per spin is 600,000. The lower payouts are compensated for by other features. In the free spins, all payouts are doubled. The Mystery Symbol stacks up to six symbols high in the base game and up to seven symbols high in the free spins.

The question arises, as to which is better Hyperion or Theia. That depends on your objective. Going by the payout table, Hyperion appears to have higher variance and is suited for players who are willing to take greater risks for higher returns.
