When I hear the names Zeus, Aphrodite or Hermes naturally I think of the gods of Greek mythology.
The name Hermes also gives me flashbacks to a rather awkward situation when my girlfriend wanted me to buy her a certain handbag. I said sure…then found out how much they cost and of course backpedaled faster than a politician after election day. Needless to say she’s now my ex-girlfriend.
So back to the gods and you had Zeus – the father of the gods, Aphrodite – the god of love, and Hermes – messenger of the gods, guide to the underworld and purveyor of obscenely overpriced handbags to mortals too rich and/or stupid to buy other brands for much less.
Zeus, Hermes and Aphrodite are now also the names of blackjack tables inside Playtech’s Latvian live dealer site.
They’ve also named a Gold table and Diamond table where presumably the high stakes action will take place.
