We have reviewed numerous slots with a Greek theme. And this game is played in the heavens of Greek mythology along with Gods of the lore. The low-paying symbols are constituted by Snakes, Panther, Kraken, and Vulture and they offer a payout of 0.2x-5x for 3 - 5 occurrences. The Gods form the high-paying symbols, their payouts increasing with the power of each god. Hermes, Dionysus, Poseidon, and Ares appear as symbols with a payout range of 1.2x-62.5x. The wild is Zeus and the scatter is his Thunderbolt in gold. While the best incentive one could land in the 20 free spins, the bonus rounds lack any significant differentiator, with no specific max win. The highest regular payout could be considered the max payout achievable. The Gods flex their power in the Ancient Fortunes: Zeus free version and gives players access to similar multiplier ranges. Other slots from the same provider like Amazing Link Zeus with a max win of 5,000x follow a similar theme while Blazing Bison Gold Blitz with a top win of 2,500x has a golden glow like this slot.
The Ancient Fortunes: Zeus demo game has free spins, and Rolling Reels along with Multiplier Trails as bonus features. Bonuses are limited but Multiplier Trails offers some exciting ranges.
The trademark of Microgaming slots, Rolling Reels gives consecutive wins as prizes to hike up the overall value of payouts.
The main bonus of the game, multiplier values increase with each roll in this round. 4 rolls are starting with Initial Spin which generates an x1 multiplier in the base game and an x3 multiplier in the bonus game. 1st Roll triggers x2 and x7 multipliers for the base game and bonus game while 2nd Roll triggers x3 and x11 multipliers in the base game and bonus game respectively. 3+ Rolls activate x7 and x21 multipliers in the base and bonus games, respectively, and all these wins get added to the main ones.
Free Spins are activated with the Scatter Thunderbolt. 3, 4, or 5 scatters can release 10, 15, and 20 free spins per round. Since the slot pays both ways, getting 3+ scatters is also easy.
