Greek mythology can be very complicated, and a part of the reason for that is that there are multiple sets of deities that ruled during different periods of time. One group of those were the titans, and the leader of the titans was Kronos, the father of Zeus and his brothers and sisters. The Kronos Unleashed slot, available at WMS casinos, brings this titan to life over the top of a huge grid of symbols, and it's done so in the tremendous graphical style that this company is known for. They've done a great job with the visual appeal and the in-depth gameplay that's based around very solid features.

A Large Layout

The layout here is huge and made for a ton of action. You'll have five vertical reels of symbols, but there are eight horizontal rows, and a total of 60 paylines are spread across this grid. All paylines go from left to right only, but there are some exceptions to this, which you'll see in the feature descriptions down below. Even though there are 60 lines, the minimum bet size is just $0.20, which is small enough for pretty much any bankroll. You can make the bet size as much as $50 per turn, and since all of the win sizes are based on the total amount you're wagering instead of line bet wins, it's much easier to have an accurate idea of how much you're going to pick up for the various winning combinations.

Wild Symbols and Kronos

Two main symbols drive the majority of the action for this game. The first is the wild symbol, and it shows up on the middle three reels only. Wild symbols obviously help you to get extra wins, but combined with the larger layout and a whooping 60 paylines, they're worth more than usual.

The Kronos symbol, however, works a bit differently. It pays in both directions, and it's the only symbol to do so, so it can combine with the wilds across the second, third and fourth reels to create a lot of extra wins that you wouldn't have received otherwise, particularly from the right-hand side of the game board. Three of a kind is worth 0.1x, four of a kind gets you 0.25x, and five of a kind pays out 1.25x. These wins might seem small, but they are made bigger by the fact that you'll almost always get several wins on the same spin with the way the game is designed.

Free Spins Bonus Feature

Three or more scatters activates the bonus feature. However, the scatters can appear in groups, so this is easier than it might seem. The number of free spins you get is determined by how many scatters show up and how many groups they appear in with a somewhat complicated formula. What you need to know is that there is consistency to how it's determined, and you can end up with several dozen free turns at once.

Lightning Re-spin Feature

If you get six or more of the golden Kronos symbol on the first reel, then you activate the Lightning Re-spin Feature. The way this feature works is that the first reel becomes completely covered with Kronos, and the rest of the reels will consist of powerup symbols or two other colors of Kronos. The different power-ups add goodies that give you more value like more spins or multipliers, and the progression from gold to red to purple means better payouts for the Kronos symbols during this feature.

Other Wins and Combinations

There are five jackpots on the side of the reels, and they increase or decreased based on your bet size. Aside from those, there are eight other paying symbols. The lion and unicorn get 0.75x for five of a kind, and the throne and crown each earn 0.6x for five. Five of the A, K, Q or J symbols all give you the same win of 0.5x.

Our Thoughts

The pay table for the Kronos Unleashed slot by WMS is a bit misleading. The wins seem much smaller than they actually are in practice because of how high the hit-rate is and how many wins you'll be getting, on average, on the same spin. Aside from that, the set of features is very strong even though there are only two of them, and that's because each of them has a lot of depth. This title looks great and plays very well, which is par for the course for this developer.
