Undoubtedly one of the most famous slots ever created, WMS Gaming’s original Zeus slot brings all the fun of the classic bricks-and-mortar machine that it’s based on to a whole new audience.
Boasting five reels, 30 paylines and a bonus feature that can award up to 100 free spins, the slot doesn’t attempt to do anything overly fancy, but instead focuses on handing out electrifying prizes that only the god of thunder himself could conjure up.
As the name would suggest, Zeus, the Greek god of thunder and the sky, is the star of the show and features as the slot’s highest value symbol. Zeus’ temple sits proudly above the reels with a cloud-filled sky in the background and also appears on the reels as a wild symbol, with Pegasus, a boat and a Greek helmet completing the list of higher value icons in the game. Further down the payout scale players will find harps, vases, coins and wreathes, while the symbol that triggers the bonus feature is Zeus’ hand clutching a lightning bolt.
Zeus only includes one bonus feature, but it is a good one that can potentially award players with up to 100 free spins. Triggered whenever three or more lightning bolt icons appear anywhere on the reels, players will receive 10, 25 or 100 bonus games, with these games taking place on an enhanced set of reels that feature more Zeus symbols and more wilds. Crucially, the Zeus symbols appear as stacks in both the base game and the free spins, providing plenty of opportunities for big combination wins.
The gameplay in Zeus is as simple as in the original land-based slot, with plus and minus arrows controlling both the number of active paylines and the bet per line amount. Anywhere from 1-30 paylines are available which, when coupled with line bet amounts of £0.01-£5.00, means the game is playable from between £0.01 and £150 per spin. All payouts and additional rules can be viewed by clicking the paytable button, while the slot also includes a number of pre-set spin options too.
Despite having been an ever-present in the land-based and online casino industries for some time now, Zeus still manages to retain its popularity to this day – and it’s not hard to see why. The game doesn’t set out to do anything overly complicated with its features, but instead provides huge value in the form of 100 free spins, with stacked Zeus symbols helping to create potentially titanic payouts.
