Zeus III Slot Review
There’s a large selection of games out there based on Greek mythology, and more specifically, the god of sky and thunder, Zeus. At least three of them, including this one, have been created by WMS, and of all the Zeus-themed offerings, Zeus III is probably one of the better products. It features a uniquely laid out interface, which includes symbols of helmets, urns, longships, silver coins, Pegasus, and Zeus himself. There’s also a mystical soundtrack included for while the reels are spinning.
The layout of the game includes six reels with stunted rows to create a sort of triangular flag shape, going from 2 rows to three, four, five, six and finally seven. This layout also includes 192 different paylines. These paylines aren’t customisable, but the bet multiplier can be switched between one and 200, which increases the coin value from the minimum wager of £0.40 up to the maximum of £80 per spin. At total of 25 autospin can be played using the relevant included button.
The Greek temple acts as the game’s wild symbol, and this will stand in for all other symbols on the reels to create a winning combination, with the only exception to this being the feature symbol. In addition, during the base game, should you spin a full reel of Zeus icons, the reel will transform into a wild reel.
The feature symbol is Zeus’ hand readying itself to throw a lightning bolt. This acts as a scatter icon, and this will trigger the freespins round when three or more appear anywhere on reels two to six. Three provide 10 freespins, four provide 25 freespins and five provide 50 freespins of the reels.
Visually speaking, Zeus III is one of the better products available from WMS utilising this theme. Gameplay is solid and interesting, and of course, freespins are always a welcome addition to any slot game.
