Zeus II: Features
Visually, it shares the same layout as the other Zeus titles so if you’re already familiar with the originals; there’s nothing new to this game. On the reels you will find scrolls, laurel wreaths, gold, silver and bronze coins, Greek vases, harps, trojan helmets, warships and Pegasus horses. The most valuable symbol, however, is Zeus who appears stacked on the reels and will give you 3.75 times the stake for 5 of a kind. You heard us right. The wild symbol is represented by a temple and appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Central to this slot is the Hot Hot Super Respin feature. When a full stack of Zeus symbols appears on reel 1, the game goes into respin mode, giving you 2 respins while reel 1, as well as any Zeus or wild symbols landing, are held in place for the duration of the feature. It’s triggered quite frequently and can do so both in the base game and the free spins.
The free spin feature is triggered when 3 scatter symbols appear on reel 1, 2 and 3. With 10 free spins to start, 3 extra scatters in the free spins gives you an additional 10 spins. It seems quite retrigger happy, which is one of few positive aspects to the slot.
Now, the only thing making the bonus game stand out from the base game is the extra wild and Zeus symbols added to the reels. Unfortunately, even in the case you would land a full-screen top symbol, all it will give you is 187 times your stake, and that’s rather shocking.
