Zeus 1000 is, as you can already tell, an Ancient Greek themed online slot game. It has the Ancient Greek pantheon as its focus actually, namely the king of the gods Zeus. The game is brought to you by software manufacturer WMS and uses the Colossal Reels engine. You will find yourself up in the clouds, high up above us mere mortals, and there will be a matching soundtrack to mark the epic nature of the moment. However, we should point out that the graphics here aren’t as glamorous as the theme might suggest – though they are of good quality, they’re not exactly fantastic. As for the symbols, many of them display typical Greek imagery, such as an amphora, a helmet and Pegasus.
Now, as we already mentioned, the game uses Colossal Reels. What this translates to in reality is a very unusual layout. It features 1 main grid of 5 reels and 4 rows, and then right beside it is a very tall grid of 5 reels and a total of 12 rows. There are 100 paylines for you to place your bets on, and these are adjustable. So, if you choose to you can even reduce them to the minimum of 20 paylines. And since stakes are per 2 active paylines, this makes for a very agreeable minimum stake of 10p per spin. The maximum amount you can wager here will set you back a total of £250 per pin.
Where to Play
The Wild symbol can land in any position, anywhere on the reels in Zeus 1000. It’s also the most lucrative icon in this game, right alongside Zeus himself. Beyond that, the Wild can substitute for all other symbols with the exception of the Bonus symbol, and in doing so, it will help create more winning combos. In addition to that, though, the Wild has another cool feature: it can appear in full-reel stacks during gameplay, and when it does so on the main set of reels it will trigger the Symbol Transfer feature. As a result, the Wild stack will transfer onto the Colossal Reels, making for even more wins.
Unlike the Wild symbol, the Bonus icon can only land on reels 1, 3 and 5, both on the regular reels and the Colossal Reels, and you will need a minimum of 3 Bonus symbols at the same time to trigger the Freespins feature. These will award you a cash prize of 2 times your stake as well as 10 free spins, but if you land more Bonus symbols you can enjoy even more free spins and more cash.
Thus, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols will award you 15 free spins and 10x your stake of 20 free spins and 20x your stake, respectively. The maximum of 30 free spins and 25x your stake is awarded for landing 6 Bonus symbols.
Furthermore, there is also the Zeus Add feature to keep in mind that you can only activate during the Freespins. To trigger it, you will need to land a full stack of Zeus symbols on reel 1, and this will turn all instances of the Zeus symbols into Zeus Add. Hence, this can award you up to 1000 extra during that same spin. Last but not least, this feature also boasts a Bonus Guarantee, so there’s no way you will walk away from the Freespins emptyhanded.
Zeus 1000 is a fairly satisfying online slot game. The graphics aren’t too impressive, but the setup is enough to keep you spinning those reels. In addition, the Freespins round can deliver decent prizes, especially thanks to the Zeus Add feature.
