He is, of course, lord of the Ancient Greek gods, and in charge of thunder and the sky, so Zeus always makes a great theme for a slot game. Powered by WMS Gaming’s software platform, Zeus III shouldn’t disappoint.
This exciting slot has six reels rather than the more typical five, like another popular WMS offering Raging Rhino, and offers 192 ways of winning. It features a unique reel structure with a Reel Boost game engine, used here for the first time. It means each column has a different number of symbols, as described below.
You’ll love the high-quality graphics and sound effects of this fun game, the latter involving dramatic music. Zeus III also incorporates free spins plus nudging Wilds. Brace yourself for some unearthly wins!
How to play
How to Play Zeus III
Reel 1 only has a couple of rows, while each row on the right of it adds a row, until there are seven on Reel 6.
Coin sizes in this game range from 40p to £80. There are a total of 192 winning Paylines over the six reels while staking options range from 40p to £120 a spin.
As usual, start to play by hitting the Spin button or use the Autoplay function to launch a preset amount of goes automatically and without interruption.
Playing card icons make up the lower-paying values, while higher up the pay scale are a coin, ship, helmet, vase, Pegasus plus Zeus himself.
The Acropolis is the standard Wild in Zeus III, but the Zeus symbol also serves as a Wild in the base game when it covers up a whole reel.
Meanwhile, the Scatter shows a lightning bolt in the hand of Zeus.
The godliest wins are on offer in this round! Land three of the game’s lightning bolt Scatter symbols anywhere on Reels 2 through 6 to trigger this exciting free spins feature. Players are awarded free spins as follows:
- Five Scatter symbols award 50 free spins + 50x total bet
- Four Scatter symbols award 25 free spins + 10x total bet
- Three Scatter symbols award 10 free spins
As the spins kick-off, you’ll see that the reels change places so that in Reel 1 there are seven rows, two in Reel 6.
Land at least three Scatters on Reels 1 through 5 while playing this round to grab five more additional free spins.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP is reasonable enough in Zeus III at 96.10%, and the game has one of the lowest volatilities available from WMS. The relatively generous RTP may make up for the lack of a progressive jackpot.
Zeus III is not, of course, the only game of its kind on this theme. But its take on it offers an intriguing reel structure, so it’s definitely worth a second look. Bear in mind that, because everything is set in stone here, there’s not much a player can do to maximise their chances of winning.
Finally, while the wins may appear a little tougher to come by during the base game due to the smaller number of rows on the left-hand reels, they are more worthwhile when they do happen.
