A Greek Mythology Themed Slot Featuring Stacked Symbols and Free Spins
Kronos was the leader and the youngest of the first generation of Titans in Greek Mythology. Kronos the character is usually depicted with a scythe, the instrument he would use to castrate and depose his own father Uranus. On the reels of this slot there is no scythe, but Kronos — not to be confused with Chronos, the God of Time — certainly looks mean on the reels.
As the saying goes, what comes around goes around, and Kronos was overthrown and imprisoned in turn by his own son Zeus. Featuring alongside Kronos on the reels are a temple in the clouds, Pegasus the winged horse, the mighty throne and golden jewellery. A new slot featuring Kronos has now appeared on casino floors – this review covers the original version, which you can enjoy online.
Kronos is a straightforward, but reward filled game, with the following range of features:

The feature symbol of the game is a golden shield showing an emblem featuring a circle with three wings rotating around the circumference. In the middle of the circle is a large letter ‘K’ indicating the title. This symbol is the largest in the game, regularly invading the space of the other symbols on the reels.
Land the feature symbol exactly three times across any of the reels and you’ll win 10 free spins. Four feature symbols increase this number to an impressive 25 free spins. The maximum five feature symbols wins you an incredible 100 free spins.
During the free spins, the set up of the reels change slightly from the base game, giving you the opportunity of more and bigger wins. The free spins can be retriggered at any time too, with the awarded spins simply added to your existing total.
Kronos plays out on the very popular 5×3 reel configuration that you’ll find at many slots today, both online and in the casino. The game has a maximum number of 20 win-lines, and these are set as the default amount. However, players do have the option of playing any number between 1 and 20. Playing fewer lines is a good option for those of you who want more spins for their money (although you will of course have fewer opportunities to win!).
Kronos is the standout symbol in the base, as he is stacked on all five reels. He’s the highest payer in the game, worth 750 coins for the maximum five in a row. Line up those stacked Kronos symbols and you’ll be looking at a mega win. Kronos is also the only symbol in the game to pay from both left to right and from right to left. The first time you pick up a win from right to left, it will be an unexpected pay out!
The temple in the clouds and Pegasus are each worth 600 coins for the maximum five. The middle of the pay table is filled with the mighty wooden throne, the golden decorative bracelet and the spade playing card symbol. The low end of the pay table features the heart, club and diamond playing card symbol.
Look out for the wild symbol, which can boost any spin. The wild features an ornate golden lion and will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the feature. This symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only.
Kronos is a very colourful and picturesque slot. The backdrop features a blue sky, with fluffy white clouds filling the bottom of the screen. The reels are a darker blue and the range of symbols add a lot of colour to the game, including a healthy helping of gold. The soundtrack is a gentle one in the base game, with much more dramatic music featuring during the free spins.
In terms of gameplay, Kronos is certainly in the ‘no-frills’ slot category. A base game with the opportunity of free spins is nothing new, but this WMS design does offer a good version of the feature. With 10, 25 or even 100 spins up for grabs, this is a feature worth playing – hopefully you’ll retrigger too. The high paying title symbol is another nice touch, especially as it pays both ways. With a pleasing design, Kronos represents a good way to spend some casino time.
