Ancient Fortunes: Zeus Slot Review
Microgaming welcomes you to Mount Olympus, the home of Zeus, Dionysus, Poseidon, Hermes and Ares. These ancient deities will help you win big in Ancient Fortunes: Zeus, a five-reel, 10-payline video slot that is playable from £0.10 per spin. Visually impressive, the 2019 release offers the Rolling Reels feature combined with Multiplier Trail, which are active both during base game and the Free Spins feature. The only difference is that the maximum multiplier in the base game is 7x, while during freebies it can reach mouthwatering 21x! Land three or more Scatters to trigger up to 20 free spins.
Zeus is the leading deity in ancient Greece and here he represents the Wild that substitutes for all other regular symbols. Ares, the god of war, is the highest-paying regular symbol. Poseidon, who controls the seven seas, is next in line, followed by Dionysus, the god of wine, and Hermes, the protector of trade and heraldry. Low-value symbols are represented by Vultures, Krakens, Panthers and Snakes. The Lightning, which is Zeus’ most favourite weapon, is used as the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
As for the rules of the game, they are pretty standard. The 2019 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 10 fixed paylines, which pay left to right and right to left. Land at least three of a kind on a payline if you want to start winning payouts. The coin denomination goes from £0.01 to £7, so gamers can bet from £0.10 to £70. Thanks to the Rolling Reels feature, the winning symbols disappear and make room for new ones to land. The Multiplier Trail will increase the winning multiplier after every consecutive win, up to 7x.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when three or more Scatters appear. Land three, four or five Scatters to trigger 10, 15 or 20 freebies. The Rolling Reels feature is also active, as well as the Multiplier Trail, only during freebies, the winning multiplier can go all the way up to 21x. Also, it is possible to retrigger the feature multiple times, so up to 70 freebies can be triggered. Of course, you will have to earn the grace of the gods to reach the maximum number of freebies.
If our calculations are correct, the 2019 release offers a maximum possible payout of 1,400 times the bet. Ares is the symbol that pays the most, offering 62,5 times the bet for five of a kind. Reach to the Free Spins feature to benefit from the Multiplier Trail and get the maximum win multiplier of 21x. Ancient Fortunes: Zeus’ RTP is 96.02%.
