Historically themed based on Ancient Greece, Zeus Online Slots by SG Digital is one of the most popular slot machines across the world and has become a Las Vegas classic as well as popular staple at 888 Online Casino.
It’s a non-progressive slot with 5 reels/30 paylines, and distinct symbols with simple easy to see clear graphics.
The Zeus slots became so popular around the world that it gave birth to entire slots franchise, and remakes such as Zeus 3, Zeus 100 and Kronos slots all inherited the best features from the original.
For players worldwide and here in New Jersey, the original Zeus slots is still the best.
The simple retro design explains why the online casinos below feature the Zeus slots machine as a must among their game offerings.
How to Play
To begin playing the Zeus slot machine, you need to choose the number of lines you want to bet, ranging from 1 to 30, and a bet amount per line, which can range from 0.01 to 5.00 coins and is chosen at the bottom of the game interface. You can also choose a classic or quick bet interface, which can be done with small buttons at the bottom left of the screen.
You can check the Zeus slots paytable by clicking the corresponding button at the bottom left of the screen. There, you’ll find an auto play start button, and the spin button is at the bottom right of the interface.Your balance can be checked at the top of the screen, where you can also find the options button, while settings for the auto play feature are at the top center of the game interface.
The symbols can appear stacked and this means you can hit stacked wilds in each spin. There are 30 active paylines, effectively allowing you to have your bank roll ticking for as long as you want or need to hit a large-sized win. That’s what Zeus does really well, pay out often and keeps you in the game for extra-long winning periods.
Zeus Online Slots Features
Wilds: The Acropolis (the Greek monument that overlooks Athens from the mountain) is the wild symbol. The symbol is emblazoned with ‘wild’ written across it in large letters.
The Wild Symbol replaces all other symbols except scatters.
Free Spins and Scatters: The hand of Zeus clutching a thunderbolt is the scatter/bonus symbols. The free spins feature is triggered by getting 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the screen.
During the free spins not only does the Zeus symbol (highest paying on the board) become stacked more frequently, but the wild symbol is also stacked.
- 3 scatters – trigger 10 free spins
- 4 scatters – trigger 25 free spins
- 5 scatters – trigger 100 free spins
Look for the Pegasus.
Five Pegasus symbols in-a-row and you’ll win in the second largest possible Zeus Slots win of 400x.
Zeus Online Slots Jackpot
Checking out the Paytable, all symbols relate to Ancient Greece from around the period 10-8 BC;
- Silver Coins
- Gold Coins
- Roman ‘Galea’ Helmets
The Zeus icon pays the most – up to around 17x the total stake can be possible. However, when Zeus is stacked or ‘clumped’ (as SG Digital refer to it), wins of up to 500x are not uncommon!
Audio and visual
Remember, Zeus is a retro-slots. The graphics can appear a little dated and fuzzy at times. As with most slots that appear on 888Casino NJ, the graphics and game play are actually better on mobile as the Dragonfish software is specifically designed for ‘mobile-first’ play.
Use an app (IoS or Android are available) to get the most fluent game play. PC play is not bad at all, just not as good as using the app on a mobile device.
Likewise, the sound is the standard SG Digital retro-themed sound that is shared across their range of retro games. Remember, the cheesiness is all part of the retro fun.
Despite being a retro game, Zeus Online Slots actually plays at its best on mobile. In my testing, I used 888Casino whose Dragonfish software enhances mobile-play as its preferred method.
