There are some themes that slot machine developers keep on going back to. Greek mythology is always a popular hunting ground and ‘Zeus’ from WMS Gaming is another example of an entertaining game that can produce some decent profits.
Behind the reels we have a golden Olympus and a sky that doesn’t look as if it’s going to be producing any rain anytime soon. There’s probably a God of Rain though so if he gets in a bad mood who knows what could happen. This is a five-reel game and has a total of 30 pay lines. This isn’t a fixed amount so there are a couple of decisions to be made before spinning those reels. That’s how much to stake on each line and how many lines to activate.
The minimum cost of this game is £0.01 and the maximum £150. That’s quite a large range so just stake what you can afford to lose. There’s two ways of setting your stake, the classic panel way or save some time and choose the quickbet panel.
The symbols in this game are all theme-related. There’s a helmet, a boat, Pegasus the Winged Horse (and favourite for the 2.30 at Athens), a gold coin, a harp, a silver coin and of course Zeus.
The wild symbol in this game is Olympus and this can substitute for other symbols to get you some winning combinations. There’s also a lightning bolt symbol which is the scatter symbol here. The wild can’t substitute for this as it’s influential in triggering the bonus feature.
It’s good to see all of the symbols being theme-related rather than padding out the symbols with a load of playing cards.
This isn’t the most complex of games but even so make sure you have a good look through the paytable and the rules for the game. The paytable button is down the bottom left hand corner and the rules are accessed via the question mark button in the top right hand corner. The more you know about this game the better and if you can then have some free games then you’ll be fully prepared for the battle that lies ahead.
It’s also possible to set some automated spins in ‘Zeus.’ This can be done by using the button underneath the reels and this sets the reels spinning until a big win is achieved. It can be stopped at any time though. If you go to the options button in the right hand corner a more precise set of automated spins can be set. Either set a certain amount, a specific time or stop when your balance reaches a certain level. Really helpful is being able to stop the autoplays if you get a big win.
