Zeus 1000 Slot Review
Zeus 1000 is a Colossal Reels slot game which is powered by WMS/Williams Interactive. This is the third Zeus-themed slot to be produced by WMS and is also a popular land based favourite. This version has main 5 reel set with an additional larger 5 x12 reel set to the right-hand side.
Playable from 50p to £250 a spin, Zeus sits on top of his throne on Mount Olympus and rules over both Gods and Men with his power on display in the latest Zeus instalment. The game benefits from wilds, free spins and symbols that transfer from 1 reel to another. Zeus can add up to 1,000 Zeus symbols to the reels during the free spins feature!
In the base game, any 4 stacked wild symbols appearing on the main reel set with initiate a symbol transfer – this will then turn the corresponding reel on the Colossal Reel set into a wild reel. Zeus 1000 is all about the Free Spins Bonus feature which can be triggered by getting 3 or more Bonus symbols (Zeus’ hand) on reels 1, 3 and 5 of either reel set. The number of free spins will be determined by how many Bonus symbols you get:
- 3 Bonus symbols gives you 10 free spins and 2 times your stake
- 4 Bonus symbols gives you 15 free spins and 10 times your stake
- 5 Bonus symbols gives you 20 free spins and 20 times your stake
- 6 Bonus symbols gives you 30 free spins and 25 times your stake
However, look out for stacked Zeus symbols – if 4 stacked Zeus symbols appear on reel 1 of the main reel set, it will change all Zeus to Zeus Add and adds a total of 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 or 1,000 Zeus add for that spin. It’s quite simple really and can really boost your winnings.
Zeus 1000 also benefits from the Bonus Guarantee feature found in other WMS slots such as Montezuma. When playing the Free Spins Bonus feature, you are guaranteed to win a minimum of 10 times your stake. It may not sound like a lot but every little helps.
I quite like Zeus 1000 as I like Colossal Reels slots like KISS Shout It Out Loud and Spartacus Gladiator of Rome. I consider it to be a medium to high variance slot with most of the win coming in the base game. However, the bigger wins come in the free spins feature but won’t come along that often. Overall, I would say Zeus 1000 is a very good addition by WMS and will surely gain iconic status like the other Zeus slots – saying that, I still love the original Zeus game the best.
