Zeus from WMS: Slot Review - the first of WMS' excellent Zeus-themed slots

The Zeus slot game is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot machine, which features a free spin bonus round whereby up to 100 free spins can be awarded, should you be lucky enough to hit five scatter symbols. This can be done and I know of gamers who have achieved this!

One of the most played series of slot machines that hail from WMS are their range of Zeus themed slot machines, when you visit any land-based casinos you are almost certainly going to be guaranteed to find a bank of these slot machines on offer, and they are also widely available in the online casino gaming world now too.

Special Features

This slot features stacked wilds which in turn can really have big impact on winning paylines should they fall into the right reel. The most valuable symbol in play in the game is Zeus himself and he also invariably appears in stacked form.

In Zeus the Acropolis symbols are the wilds and substitute for everything but the scattered Fist symbols. There is no pay listed for the five wilds so this just pays the highest pay table value which is 500 coins for five of the Zeus symbols.

On the base game the Zeus symbols appear stacked on all reels. This means that you can get a whole screen of Zeus symbols and the top jackpot of 500 coins on all 30 lines. This turns what is a small 500 coin jackpot into a x15,000 coin pay.

After the top pay for the Acropolis and Zeus symbols the next highest line wins for five of a kind are 400 coins (Pegasus), 350 coins (Boat or Helmet) and 250 coins (Harp or Vase). The rest of the five of a kind line wins come in at between 200 and 150.

The scattered Fist symbols are the key to the free spins. Get three, four or five anywhere on the screen and you win 10, 25 or a big 100 spins respectively. There is no multiplier on the free games but stacked wilds are added to the reels so this greatly increases the chances of hitting big multi-line pays during the free spins. The feature can be re-triggered.

Zeus also has an optional gamble feature where you can try your luck at increasing your winnings from the reels. Pick red or black and a correct guess doubles your winnings. Pick incorrectly and you lose your winnings. You can gamble up to five times or until you reach the gamble limit which is set at 5,000.00.

Theme and Graphics

The theme of the Zeus slot is based on the mythical Greek God, Zeus, and therefore the symbols in play in the slot depict various items from that bygone era, with laurel wreaths, coins and mythical horses all occurring throughout the game.

Lightning strikes happen on the machine too, to denote a win. The graphics and sounds in play and utilised by the slot are very crisp, clear and professionally done.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

I regard Zeus as a medium variance slot, meaning that you are unlikely to hit a life-changing sum of money, but you do get a good amount of game time for your money and the chance of getting a half decent return.

The machine offers coins in multiple denominations that range from £0.01 up to £5. You can only use one coin at a time on a payline with the minimum line bet set at £0.30 and maximum line bet at £5. You can put a maximum bet wager of £150 and the maximum win is set at £2,500 and amounts to 500 casino credits.

The symbols can appear stacked and this means you can hit stacked wilds in each spin. There are thirty active paylines, effectively allowing you to have your cash reserves ticking for as long as you want.

Our Verdict on Zeus

The gameplay is fun and exciting. All in all, Zeus is an impressive slot and if you get a chance well worth playing online.
It is a fast moving slot themed on the Ancient Greek God as well as several prominent Goddesses and with its vibrant graphics, extraordinary surround sound and winning opportunities it provides for an exciting, thrilling and adventurous gaming experience.
