After missing by a Grecian mile on the first installment of Zeus slot games, the casino game-creating brainiacs at WMS decided to go for a radical makeover of the boring Zeus slot with its Zeus 3 slot – actually Zeus III by its proper name. After missing by a Grecian mile on the first installment of Zeus slot games, the casino game-creating brainiacs at WMS decided to go for a radical makeover of the boring Zeus slot with its Zeus 3 slot – actually Zeus III by its proper name. In addition, who needs it? The Zeus III slot game is so far beyond Zeus that it may all well be acknowledged as two generations ahead of its time.
A lot. The Zeus 3 gameboard is a horizontal triangle shape rapidly becoming a major fringe genre within slots. This is to say that there are six reels of two, three, four, five and six rows. Some 192 paylines are in play or a possible 720 line combinations.
On the face of it, you’d think so, right? But think about it: To guarantee a win, you’ll have to hit a wild in the first reel. Zeus 3 has stacked and expanding wilds, and seasoned slots players can confirm that nothing is more infuriating than getting one (or even two) reels filled with wilds to no avail.
We’re just gonna have to admit that Zeus III is a high-variance slot. This is, however, very good news in that, whoa, are the wins big in the Zeus III slot. We can attest that one win typically pays on dozens of lines and wipes out *a lot* of losing spins in a jiffy. Think about it: With just one wild in the first reel, you’re automatically looking at winning on anywhere from 12 to 96 lines.
O, right. Let’s get to that. Basically, things here remain relatively the same as in the Zeus slots game – and when we say “relatively” there, we mean “exactly.” Returning are lyres, pottery, coins, battle gear, ships, etc. (Why do they never put Socrates in these things?) The white-bearded Zeus symbol is back as the wild – and this time he’s expanding! The Mount Olympus-like building is a stacked wild.
With 192 paylines in play, you’ll be paying in increments to cover ‘em all. Bets start at 40¢ per spin. That’s way better than a penny slot; it’s more like a ¼-penny slot!
