A Popular Ancient Greek Themed Slot Featuring Free Spins and Stacked Zeus Symbols
In ancient Greek religion, Zeus is the sky and thunder god, however his power was much wider than that. Zeus was seen as the chief of all gods and fathered many of the heroes in Greek mythology. Alongside Zeus on the reels are Pegasus the winged horse, a boat with many oars heading to war, a battle helmet and many other symbols relating to ancient Greece. As the highest paying symbol in the game and being stacked too, Zeus stands out here too, with big wins sure to come your way.
Zeus is a fast paced and entertaining game, which has become a popular classic around the world.
Here are the features which made it great:

The free spins bonus feature is activated by the feature symbol, showing Zeus’s hand holding a lightning bolt. Hit exactly three feature symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll win 10 free spins. This number rises to 25 free spins when you land four feature symbols. Hit the maximum five feature symbols and you’ll up in the heavens yourself, as you’ll have 100 free spins to enjoy.
Each of the free spins is potentially that much more valuable than in the base game due to the wilds. In the base game, the wild symbols appear individually. However, during the free spins, the wilds become stacked and a lot more prevalent than in the base game. Line up those all wild reels and you’ll be looking at some incredible opportunities.
During the free spins, any time you hit three or more feature symbols, the feature will be retriggered. This will see the awarded spins added to your existing total.
Zeus plays out on a 5×3 reel configuration, which pays from left to right. The game features a default number of 30 win-lines, although players do have the option to lower this number to between any number between 1 and 30 (for the full Zeus experience, all 30 lines are recommended!).
Zeus himself is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 2,500 coins for hitting the maximum five in a row. Being stacked, you may find yourself winning with Zeus over more than one win-line. Zeus is also the only symbol which awards a prize for just two symbols in a row from left to right, with all others requiring at least three.
Pegasus is next on the pay table, paying 2,000 coins, while the war-boat and the battle helmet each pay 1,750 coins. A harp, a vase, gold and silver coins and a wreath make up the rest of the pay table. It’s good to see a slot where all of the symbols relate to the theme, without the need for the ‘playing card’ filler symbols.
The wild symbol features an image of an ancient Greek temple and will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the feature symbol. This wild, of course, plays a major role in the feature.
The backdrop to this WMS designed slot features an image of the sky. Above the reels sits a cloud and sitting on that cloud is a fantastic golden temple. Pillars sit either side of the temple, with lightning bolts striking out of the tops of each pillar.
Below you have the cream coloured reels, featuring all of the ancient Greek imagery in the symbols. Graphically it can feel a little basic, but there are some nice touches, especially when you land a win with the wild and the symbol animates. The gentle soundtrack doesn’t really match with the theme, although I guess every God has to have some downtime.
Zeus is something of an intriguing game. While the design isn’t a match for some more modern slots, and the gameplay couldn’t be described as unique, the game has huge appeal. This original Zeus slot has spawned a number of sequels, which is evidence of that appeal. The highlight of the game is certainly the free spins bonus feature, where the Zeus symbols and the stacked wilds can create something thunderous.
