Almighty Reels – Power of Zeus is a Novomatic-powered slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable from 25p to £100 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this Greek mythology themed game is based on the omnipotent god of thunder and comes with a Free Games feature where you choose your giant symbol.

Visually, Almighty Reels – Power of Zeus is the best looking in the Almighty Reels series. Set on top of Mount Olympus, the reels are encased by marble columns. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as harps, cornucopias, vases, Spartan helmets and Zeus himself – the latter is the most rewarding with 4 times your stake on offer for 5 across a payline. The temple symbol is the wild and replaces all other symbols except the scatter.

The game is all about the Golden Coin symbol as this is the scatter – appearing 3×3 in size, when it lands fully in view, you’ll trigger the Free Games feature. You then need to choose a symbol to act as the 3×3 Giant Symbol during the feature:

  • Choose Zeus to get 8 free spins
  • Choose the Spartan helmet to get 9 free spins
  • Choose the vase to get 10 free spins
  • Choose the harp to get 11 free spins
  • Choose the cornucopia to get 12 free spins

Now, picking the cornucopia to appear as a Giant Symbol will give you more free spins but it’s lower in value compared to Zeus for example. I would opt for Zeus personally as he’s the highest value symbol. Saying that, if you were to fill the reels with Zeus on a spin/free spin, you’d only win 100 times your stake.

Almighty Reels – Power of Zeus looks great but the low to medium variance does put me off slightly – I do prefer more volatile slots that offer a bigger winning potential. If you want the same theme and bigger maximum wins, Play ‘N Go’s Rise of Olympus and Playtech’s Age of the Gods are highly recommended.
