Important Symbols and Combinations
The Parthenon is the wild symbol, but it does not award any line payouts. The thunderbolt is the feature symbol, which awards scatter payouts and triggers the free spins. It appears only on reels 2 to 6. The symbols from Greek mythology include Zeus, the flying horse Pegasus, warship, Spartan helmet, urn and coin. As in many WMS Gaming slot games, the low paying symbols are the playing card suits. In keeping with his status as the king of gods, if Zeus appears on every symbol on the reel then the entire reel becomes wild. The payouts are calculated after this transformation.
The Reel Boost configuration is unique. There are six reels with two rows on the first reel. The number of rows increases by one till the sixth reel has seven rows. Therefore you can get payouts with six of a kind symbol. Zeus III has 192 paylines all of which are mandatorily active. The payouts therefore come thick and fast. The minimum total bet is 0.40 credits for a Bet Multiplier of 1. The multiplier can be increased to 200 giving a maximum bet of 80 credits. For the selected total bet, the payout table directly indicates the line payouts for various winning combinations.
Fans of WMS Gaming slots will find their regular operating features. There is an Auto Play feature that will stop when any set condition is met. The audio can be disabled if you want. The detailed rules open in a new window by clicking on the '?' icon in the top right corner.
The free spins are triggered when 3 or more feature symbols appear scattered on reels 2 to 6. 5 symbols award 50 free spins and 50 times the total bet. 4 symbols award 25 free spins and 10 times the total bet. 3 symbols award 10 free spins. During the free spins the reels and paylines are flipped. Since the reels with more rows appear on the left, the probabilities of payouts increase. Even if one Zeus symbol appears on any reel, the reel automatically gets filled with Zeus symbols and become a wild reel. The payouts are evaluated after this transformation. During the free spins the thunderbolt feature symbol appears on reels 1 to 5 and triggers additional free spins as before.
