April 2020 saw the release of Red Tiger Gaming’s Olympian-inspired Zeus Lightning Power Reels slot. The game highlights include the Expanded Lightning feature, Zeus expanded wilds, free spins, and a golden 4,500x bet jackpot!
Fantastic Beasts of Greek Mythology
Welcome to Mount Olympus, home to the Ancient Greek gods. Concealed amongst the thick clouds, stand the mighty stone temples. The 7×6 (reels/rows) and 30 paylines slot uses mythological beasts to represent the high-wins symbols: a satyr (Pan), Gryphon, the Minotaur, the gorgon Medusa, and the Chimera. The intricate details that went into the higher-paying symbols also found their way into the 4 card suit low-wins symbols.
The soundtrack is no less legendary than Zeus himself with epic music and intermittent cracks of thunder for a more surreal experience.
Zeus Expanded Wild
A Zeus expanded wild has the power to appear anywhere on the playing area. It is an expanded 1×3 (reels/rows) symbol that may partially or fully appear to substitute for any regular paying symbol. On any given spin, only one wild may arise during the main game, but up to three may appear during free spins.
Expanded Lightning is called forth by Zeus when he fully appears on the playing area. He invokes thunder that expands all appearances of a randomly chosen symbol, entirely covering their respective reels. At its best, you can find 42 identical symbols for super wins! Additionally, symbols do not need to be adjacent on the same payline to win.
The free spins symbol is a scatter whose function is to unlock free spins when appearing in sets of 3 in any positions. In free spins mode, 1-3 Zeus expanded wilds can appear on any one spin to invoke the Expanded Lightning feature. The second and third symbols expand even more symbols or upgrade symbols that have already expanded.
Zeus Lightning Power Reels slot has a low 94.73% RTP with bets that begin at 0.10 and climb to 40.
The game is available on smartphone/tablet and desktop platforms so enjoy it on your Android/iOS device, or Windows OS if you’re chilling from home.
You’ll find a high hit rate likely owing to the stacked symbols, and high volatility so you’ll win often enough but don’t expect too many huge prizes! Your best chance is probably during free spins because of the Expanded Lightning feature mechanics, but it could take a while for the feature to drop. It also seemed to us a bit odd to offer just 30 paylines for such a large playing area but it makes a bit more sense considering win lines pay both ways or in the middle.
While the library of Ancient Greek slots keeps getting bigger, a high volatility favourite of ours continues to be Divine Fortune from NetEnt. Aside from its progressive jackpot, the artwork and soundtrack continues to blow us away!
We get that slots are a matter of personal taste so no matter what your preference, you’ll find it at one of our recommended casinos.
