Zeus 3 Online Video Slot
Zeus 3 is the third instalment of the popular Zeus online video slot games produced by Williams Interactive or WMS. As with the first two games, the theme of this slot has to do with Greek Mythology and the gods that rule the earth. Zeus is king of the gods, and ruler of Mount Olympus. The backdrop to the slot is a view of Mount Olympus held aloft by the clouds and crowned in a ray of sunshine. As with most of the WMS games, the graphics and animation are top class. The background music is pleasant, with burst of vibrant sound effects whenever a winning combination is achieved.
6 Reels with 192 Paylines
As with many of the WMS games, the slot machine setup in Zeus 3 is completely non-traditional. The reels themselves are set out in a slide pyramid arrangement with a total of 6 reels from left to right. The pyramid combination creates a total of 192 paylines in which players can form a winning combination. On the reels, the symbols are all related to Greek Mythology. The highest paying symbols of the game include Zeus himself, Pegasus, a Greek war ship, a war helmet, a Greek vase and a Greek coin. For the lower paying symbols the game designers have used the four playing card suits namely hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds.
Coliseum Wild Symbol
In addition to the standard pyramid slot, Zeus 3 also includes a number of bonus features in the form of a two wild symbols, a scatter symbol, free spins and a wild reel feature. The main wild symbol in this game is the image of the Coliseum. This wild symbol can be used to substitute for any of the other standard reel symbols in order to create a winning combination on a payline. The only symbol the Coliseum cannot substitute for is the lightning bolt feature symbol.
Zeus Wild Reel Feature
In Zeus 3, Zeus himself also acts as a wild symbol in conjunction with the Coliseum wild. The difference is that Zeus appears stacked on the reels which can turn the entire reel into a wild reel. This gives players an even greater chance of creating a winning combination. The only other bonus feature in this game is the free spin or feature round. The feature round is triggered by the feature symbol which is the image of Zeus’s hand holding a lightning bolt.
Free Spin Bonus Round
In Zeus 3, players can trigger the free spin feature round by landing 3 or more lightning bolt feature symbols anywhere on reels 2 through to 6. The more scatter symbols that trigger the feature round, the more free spins are awarded. 3 scatters will earn 10 free spins while 4 scatter will earn 25 free spins plus a bet multiplayer. If players manage to get all 5 scatters from reel 2 to reel six, they will earn 50 free spins plus a 50x total bet multiplier. During the free spin round, landing 3 or more feature symbols on reels 1 through to 5 will earn additional free spins.
