Zeus 3 is one of the online video slots in WMS Gaming’s Zeus series of slots. Zeus 3 is packed with exciting features such as Nudging Wilds and Godly Free Spins. The top fixed jackpots are on the low side, but you can always win a nice pile of coins in the Godly Free Spins feature.

Theme

Zeus 3 celebrates Greek mythology and revolves around the character of Zeus, the presiding deity of the storms, thunder, and lightning. The visuals are nothing much to shout about, but the color scheme and the imagery depicts the Greek mythology theme very well.

How to Play Zeus 3 Slot

To play Zeus 3 for real money, you have to place a bet by clicking on the Bet/192 Lines button. Doing so opens a separate bet box with the + and – signs. You can use these signs to adjust the size of your bet. The slot allows you to place bets in the range of 0.40 – 80.00. You can set the game to play automatically for up to 100 spins on a selected bet.

Symbols and Bonus Features

Zeus 3 is a six-reel slot with an innovative game design. The first reel holds two symbols. The number of symbols then increases by one for each reel to become seven symbols on the sixth reel. These reels are populated with card symbols of hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs along with thematic symbols of Zeus catching a bolt of lightning, ships, helmets, Pegasus, coins, vases, and so on.

The wild Mount Olympus symbol can substitute for all other standard symbols to create winning combinations. Also, if the Zeus symbols appear all over a reel, they will start acting as wild symbols.

In addition, Zeus III has the following bonus feature:

Godly Free Spins – If you land at least three scatter symbols between the sixth and the second reels, you will unlock the free spins feature. The number of free spins you will receive depends on the number of scatters you used to unlock the free spins feature.

Accordingly, three scatter symbols unlock 10 free spins, four scatter symbols unlock 25 free spins with a multiplier value of 10x, and five scatter symbols unlock 50 free spins with a multiplier value of 50x.

You can re-activate the free spins feature by landing at least three scatter symbols on the first to fifth reels. When you do so, you will get five extra free spins.

Moreover, the slot reels flip over during the free spins round with the first reel displaying seven symbols, the second reel displaying six symbols, the third reel displaying five symbols, the fourth displaying four symbols, the fifth displaying three symbols, and the sixth displaying two symbols. When this happens, you can easily land winning combos.

Another interesting thing happens during the free spins round. Whenever you land a Zeus symbol on a reel, the entire reel turns into a wild. Called the Nudging Wilds feature, it can yield some big wins especially if you at least three wild reels.

Conclusion

Usually, a series of slots based on the same theme tends to get boring. But this isn’t the case with WMS Gaming’s Zeus slots. Zeus 3 enhances the original experience of playing Zeus. Plus, the opportunity to win up to 50 free spins with a multiplier value of 50x makes Zeus 3 one of the must play slots in the WMS library.
