The God of Slots
As we’ve come to know and love with Colossal Reels powered slot games, these offer two sets of reels to monitor so there is plenty going on with every spin. The main set is your standard five reel layout, while the Colossal set is a whopping five reel with 60 positions to reveal!
Playable from 50c per spin right up to $250, payouts can range from the sublime to the ridiculous courtesy of the Colossal system.
At the basic level, you are looking for those matching symbols to pick up some of the lower ranking prizes; from the playing card symbols A, K, Q and J through to the chariot, Pegasus, the God’s throne and Zeus himself, who pays at 1.00 for five of his visage.
There are plenty of special symbols to hunt down as well, including the wilds and features that trigger all manner of bonuses. Pick up four stacked wilds and these will replicate themselves on the Colossal reel with the hope of creating more wins. Any bonus symbol that is transferred across to the second set of reels is knows as a ‘Wonus’.
There are some pretty impressive animations to enjoy when you hit one of the big bonuses – especially when Zeus strikes angrily on reel 1, and it adds a unique twist to an already enjoyable game.
The secret to Zeus 1000’s success is in its Free Spins Bonus round, which is triggered by scooping three of more of the bonus symbol (which is the Hand of Zeus) on reels 1, 3 and 5 on either the main or Colossal reels.
The number of freebies you win is determined as follows:
|Number of Bonus Symbols||Free Spins||Stake|
|Three Bonus Symbols||10||2x|
|Four Bonus Symbols||15||10x|
|Five Bonus Symbols||20||20x|
|Six Bonus Symbols||30||25x|
Four stacked Zeus symbols on reel 1 of the main set will change all Zeus symbols to the extra special ‘Zeus Add’ feature, which adds a total of 400 to 1000 Zeus’s for that spin to all reels bar reel 1 of the main set. That’s a very handy booster.
And then there’s the Bonus Guarantee too which is so beloved in WMS slot games. During the Free Spins round you are guaranteed to at least 10x your initial stake even if your spins don’t reveal any winning combination!
An alternative set of reels is used during the Free Spins Bonus round, and winning combinations are the same here as they are in the main game except that the Bonus symbol is not available. And don’t forget that the bet per line and the number of active paylines remain the same in the Free Spins feature too.
There is something absolutely exhilarating about playing a greek mythology inspired slot game like Zeus 1000, and players get the feeling a win is just around the corner thanks to the sheer number of winning options available.
With five unique bonus symbols on offer, the action never seems to stop, and whilst this can take some getting used to once players are au fait with the rules and the paytable, Zeus 1000 slot becomes like second nature.
It is the latest game in the Zeus series so it is perhaps too early to say if Zeus 100 will replicate the success of its predecessors, but the initial signs are that it is set to join this legendary band of slot games known throughout the world for their generosity and optimum replay value.
