Reign of Zeus
The high God of the Greek pantheon is here again, in another take on the ever-popular Greek Mythology in the game called Reign of Zeus by Betixon.
Zeus is in charge of thundering your way into riches in this Olympian title that is played on an unusual set of reels of 3-4-4-4-3, offering 20 paylines!
Climb Mount Olympus and see what Gods have prepared for you in the form of Multipliers, Free Spins and Respins!
And What About The Theme?
By the first look, as well as its name, it is clear that the source of inspiration for the creation of this 5-reeled title is Greek Mythology.
Thanks to the available literature, as well as World's culture, the Gods have become one of the main inspirations for artists and game developers that lasts to this day.
This cartoonish game is equipped with interesting graphics, a good story and strong colours.
The story is set in a temple that looks like it was built on top of the mountain where all ancient deities lived, Mount Olympus, while in the background, you can notice the sky covered in thick clouds.
On both sides of the reels, there are two stone columns, while the reels feature Zeus himself and two younger male and female gods, together with playing card symbols in different colours.
How Much Can We Bet?
Do not let the deities intimidate you, as the gameplay is actually straightforward and user-friendly.
The title boasts an unusual set of reels, where there are 5 reels, but with the first and the last featuring 3, while the others 4 rows.
The Gods give you 20 fixed ways to win, by using nine regular symbols.
As expected, playing card suits are the lowest-paying ones, followed by the goddess and the young god that reward you 20x, 30x, 40x and 30x, 40x and 50x your stake respectively.
Zeus himself is the highest-rewarding symbol, giving you 60x, 100x and 120x your stake for 3, 4 or 5 of them in combination.
To enter this impressive Greek temple, you need to set your bets that vary between 0.20p and 20p.
What Special Features Can We Expect?
Speaking of symbols, those 9 regular icons are supplemented by two special symbols, Wild and Scatter, that deserve your attention.
The ancient helmet serves as a Wild, and it acts as a substitute for all the regular symbols, while Zeus’s fist holding a lightning bolt is the Scatter, responsible for triggering the Free Spins feature.
However, that isn't the only role the Wild symbol boasts!
After it helps form a winning combination, it then triggers a Respin with an x2 multiplier!
Now, regardless of the outcome of that respin, you will get another with an x3 multiplier, then with x4 and, finally, a respin with x5 multiplier!
But, if the winnings do not continue one after another, the feature ends, and it goes back to the x1 beginning.
When it comes to the main feature, you can trigger the Free Spins once you get three or more Scatters anywhere on the reels, when you will be rewarded 10 extra spins.
Another great thing is, they also come with multipliers that start with an x2 and can go up to x10!
What Is Our Take?
When it comes to theme, Betixon wasn't very innovative with the Reign of Zeus title, but they managed to compensate for that by implementing the Wild mechanics that can really spice up your winnings.
Overall, the visuals are good, and along the possible payouts and the chance to trigger the Free Spins round should be enough for you to give this game a chance.
