About Zeus Lightning Power Reels Slot
The setup of the game is quite unusual – it has 7 reels and 6 rows and 30 fixed pay-lines. You will win when you match 3 or more symbols on adjacent reels starting from the 1st one. Exceptions are expanding symbols that don’t need to be on adjoining reels to give you wins. You can play with wagers from 0.10 to 20 credits.
The volatility of the game is very high and its RTP is more than attractive and impressive – 97.73%. During the rounds, Zeus wilds are central for scoring bigger wins. They expand random symbols and upgrade some of them in free spins. The max win per spin is 5,037 times your stake.
Zeus Lightning Power Reels Design
The game is a pleasant recreation of the ancient Greek legends and myths. The grid is flanked by two large marble pillars. The overall colours on the screen are rather dark and gloomy. The symbols have very similar hues and it is quite hard to differentiate them well. They include the 4 main card suits in baroque flowing design. There are all kinds of engraved masks of animals: a serpent, bird, bear, ram and a pan/humanoid figure.
Zeus is also here as the only more detailed and colourful symbol – the wild. He comes into life once it lands contributing to a win. The soundtrack is a moving orchestral score mixed with thunder and lightning. The feeling you get while you play is epic and magnificent like being elevated by the gods to a higher realm.
Zeus Lightning Power Reels Gameplay
The symbols in the game include 9 regular ones, all of which can become stacked. The low-paying symbols are the 4 card suits. The hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades styled with a lot of ornaments in a baroque style.
The premiums are mainly animals masks – a serpent, bird, bear, and a ram. There is a golden pan/humanoid symbol which is the most rewarding of all. It pays 150 times your stake for 7 on a line.
Zeus Lightning Power Reels Features & Bonuses
The bearded symbol of Zeus is the wild and it can land in 3 symbols high stacks. When you land Zeus wild as fully stacked, you trigger the Expanding Lightning feature. At the start of it, Zeus fires bolts of lightning. The symbol that gets struck by the lightning will fill one reel or more reels, which is even better. The number of expanded reels with symbols are randomly chosen.
The best case, which is possible to happen, is filling all 7 reels with the same symbol. This gives you massive payouts. The expanded reels with matching symbols don’t need to be on adjoining reels to give you payouts. So, you are guaranteed to get wins from this feature.
To trigger the Free Spins, as usual, you need 3 scatters landed on the same spin anywhere on the grid. You will then receive 5 times your stake and 8 free spins. You can collect them or take part in a gamble feature by spinning a gamble wheel.
The wheel has 10 sections with a fixed number of free spins. There are 6 sections with 4 free spins that give you 60% possibility to get them. Other 3 sections can give you 12 free spins – 30% possibility and one of them has 20 displayed for 20 free spins – 10% chance. So, you risk ending up with 4 free spins but can win 12 or 20 free rounds instead of the default 8.
During free spins, the Zeus wild symbols continue to land. You have a chance to land up to 3 fully stacked wilds on each free spin. With 2 more Zeus wild symbols per spin, the game becomes much more interesting.
When more than one wilds land, one of them expands random symbols. The other 2 expand more symbols or upgrade the expanded ones into the next highest in value symbol from the pay-table. Scatters also pay and 3 gives you 5x stake, while 2 scatters give you 2x stake.
There are plenty of slots inspired by vast Greek mythology. Zeus Lightning Power Reels stands out with its 42 symbols, animals masks and design. The only Greek god present in it is the Thunderer Zeus. You can spend a great time and win much from the expanding and upgraded symbols and reels during free spins.
