Zeus Lightning Power Reels is a 7 reel slot and each reel is 6 symbols high. The slot uses traditional paylines, with 30 in total, playing from left to right.
Theme – This is an Ancient Greek themed slot with Zeus and his lightning bolts the main symbols and the main features that the game has to offer.
Wilds – The Wild symbol is “Zeus”, which will land 3 symbols high and will substitute for all symbols other than Free Spins. It will also trigger the Expanding Lightning feature described in the features section. Only one “Zeus” symbol can land on the reels during the base game.
Expanding Lightning – When the Zeus symbol lands on the reels he will use his lightning to choose a random symbol and expand it to fill the reel, with the potential to fill all the reel with the same symbol.
Free Spins – If the Free Spins feature triggers you will be given 8 Free Spins. At the start of the Free Spins, two more Zeus super symbols are added to the reels, increasing the maximum number of Zeus super symbols which may land in the same spin to three. When multiple Zeus super symbols land in full view on the reels, the first one triggers a symbol expansion as per the normal game, while the other two trigger either an expansion of more symbols of the expanded type, or (if no more non-expanded symbols of that type are present) an upgrade of the expanded symbols to the next higher paying symbol.
This is a well designed slot that has a few good features but ultimately leaves the player wanting just that little bit more. You get Free Spins and you get the Expanding Lightning feature that accompanies the Wilds but there is no bonus and there are no other modifiers. The house edge is also higher than we would want it to be, which leaves us struggling to recommend this slot.
