Zeus 3 Online Slot Fundamentals
Zeus 3 is a Greek mythology-themed online slot game created by WMS. This innovative slot incorporates 6 reels and 192 fixed paylines into a unique reel formation, with reel 1 containing 2 rows and the following reels containing an additional symbol each, increasing consecutively until reel 6, which contains 7 rows of symbols.
The bonus feature in Zeus 3 is the free spins feature in which players can win up to 50 free spins and a 50x win multiplier. Also included are both a standard wild symbol and Nudging Wilds, which can cover whole reels during the game to create extra winning combinations.
Game Play and Graphics
Zeus 3 is based on the mighty god of lightning himself, and the whole game is centred on Greek mythology. The reels are set against a blue sky streaked with sunlight, and a Greek temple is just visible in the top right hand corner, resting on a cluster of clouds. The reels themselves are set in a unique formation, and on them are a number of items that relate to the Greek mythological theme. Accompanying the game play is a suitably dramatic soundtrack to add to the majestic feel of this online slot.
On the reels of Zeus 3 are a selection of Greek artefacts and mythological figures. Players can expect to see Greek vases, helmets, wooden ships and coins on the reels, as well as the white winged horse Pegasus and Zeus himself. Also included are playing card suit symbols of red hearts, pink diamonds, blue spades and purple clubs.
Standard and Nudging Wilds
There are 2 wild symbols in Zeus 3. The Greek temple icon serves as the standard wild symbol, but Zeus also acts as a Nudging Wild symbol, nudging himself onto the reels to turn entire reels wild and create even more winning combinations.
The game’s scatter symbol is a graphic of Zeus’ hand holding a glowing lightning bolt. These symbols will appear on reels 2 to 6, and landing 3 or more of them on these reels will trigger the free spins feature.
Free Spins Feature
Once the free spins feature has been triggered, the Zeus 3 game screen will change, turning the previously blue sky backdrop golden and inverting the reel formation to face in the opposite direction. Players will then be awarded a number of free spins and a multiplier depending on how many scatter symbols activated the feature during the base game.
If 3 scatter symbols triggered the feature, players will be awarded 10 free spins, if 4 scatters triggered the feature players will receive 25 free spins and a 10x multiplier, and if 5 scatter symbols triggered the free spins feature players will be awarded 50 free spins and a 50x multiplier that will apply to all wins won during the free spins feature.
Players can also win additional free spins by landing more scatter symbols during the feature. Landing 3 or more scatters on reels 1 to 5 during the free spins feature will award players an additional 5 free spins.
