The Zeus slot is a 5-reel, 30 pay line online slot game from Williams Interactive (WMS). The theme of the game takes players all the way back to Ancient Greece, when mortals thought they were simply the playthings of the gods who dwelt on Mount Olympus. Mighty Zeus was the king and the father of the gods, the ruler of the mountain and the god of the sky, the weather, law & order and justice. He overthrew his father Cronus as king of the gods by castrating him. If that sounds like no way to treat your dad, know that Cronus has done exactly the same to his own father, Uranus, as well as eating three of his own kids.
The symbols in this slot all depict various items from Ancient Greece such as vases, harps, wreaths, and gold & silver coins. To win a cash amount, you need only to land at least three symbols on one of your pay lines in sequence from the left-hand reel. You can bet from £0.01 to £5 per line, and you can select up to 30 lines to have in play.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start from x5 your line bet all the way up to x500 for the titular hero Zeus himself.
The Parthenon symbol acts as the 'Wild' symbol and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the Lightning Bolt symbol.
The Lightning Bolt symbol acts as the 'Scatter' symbol, and three or more scatters triggers the 'Zeus Feature', which is a number of free spins. You receive ten free spins for three scatter symbols, 25 free spins for four scatter symbols, and a god-like 100 free spins for five scatter symbols. During free spins a different set of reels is used (which include stacked wilds), and you can re-trigger more free spins while using your existing ones.
So, is the Zeus online slot the kind of slot that the gods themselves would play? Well, maybe not (they'd obviously have more godly things to do), but it's a rather neat little game that's not too demanding, and if you're lucky enough to hit the free spins, you could yourself become the God of Jackpots!
