This wombat loves two bites of the cherry- literally, so the Ancient Fortunes Zeus slot’s both ways win set-up had me hopping off the sofa quicker than a thunderbolt. This is a big action release from Triple Edge Studios and Microgaming. We are heading back in time to even before the times of the Centurion slot to Ancient Greece, so put on your sandals and let’s go and check this game out.
Try to imagine an all-powerful Greek God rampaging on the reels with bonus extras including Rolling Reels, a Multiplier Trail and a head-spinning 50 free spins. Quite a vision, right! And that’s before I’ve even popped on some of those snazzy sandals. “Behold My Power!”, as Zeus would say in that big BOOMING voice of his.
Look and Feel
The reels of this mythical reel machine are set against a stone wall with a city in the background and a stormy sky. Spin the reels for a glimpse of golden Olympus.
The graphics are swanky and Triple Edge Studios have built a game with looks nearly as good as its bonus extras.
Those of a nervous disposition might want to turn the background music off. There are dramatic drum rolls and the sounds of Zeus’ thunderbolts…
This classy mythical number from Microgaming takes place on 3 rows, 5 reels and 10 pay-lines and pays both ways. So not as many as game like the “I am the Law slot” from 1X2 Gaming and this should give you a good idea of how the game plays we’d have this down as a medium variance game.
The stone sculpted faces of 4 different ancient gods are the higher scoring icons. There’s Ares, the god of war, Poseidon, the sea god, Dionysus, god of wine and the warrior goddess of Athens, Athena. The lower scoring symbols are four emblems of the gods which include a vulture, giant squid, lion and snakes. Those are some full-on mascots! But where are the furry marsupials with the cool shades? Give me a call Microgaming. I’m ready.
The game’s Wild is Zeus’ stone face with a gold head wreath and glowing eyes- a nice friendly touch I thought. The Wild subs for all icons. Zeus’ thunderbolt is the Scatter which triggers the bonus game. The last time we triggered the free spins it was the Sun God on the Inca’s Treasure slot, so what do you know? It’s deities all round to trigger the free games.
Ancient Fortunes Zeus slot comes with a Rolling Reels mechanic which gives you the chance to make two wins with a single spin. Land a winning combo and the winning icons blast away causing new icons to fall into place and this keeps going as long as you keep making wins.
Because those ancient gods can be generous, if you’re feeling lucky and make consecutive wins, you can cash in again thanks to a Multiplier Trail. Secure a consecutive win and generate an x1 multiplier. The Multiplier Trail maxes out when you hit 4 wins in a row. Make consecutive wins and gain x1, x2, x3 and x7.
Free Spins- Welcome to the Realm of the Gods!
3, 4 or 5 Scatters on your reels will unlock the free games awarding 10, 15 or 20 free games. If you land an additional three Scatters in the bonus mode you will win further free games. Not only is the free spins game generous but the multiplier ladder is also active here, only this time those Greek gods have upped the ante. Make consecutive wins and gain x3, x7, x11 or even x21!
The Ancient Fortunes Zeus slot is a medium variance game that offers some nicely-sized wins thanks to Rolling Reels and the highly rewarding multiplier trail. And the chance of bagging 50 free games of course. Roll up wombat fans and get a taste of some cash-heavy thunderbolts.
Wombat Score: 4 out of 5
A classy slot, one lively addition to the ancient times genre.
