Wild Link Zeus Features
Sometimes you just want a basic game with limited features to pass the time. And sometimes you want a slot to throw something exciting at you at every turn. Well, if you were looking for the peaceful slot option, then you might want to walk away now! This game’s pretty frantic and keeps you on your toes.
The base game begins as a standard 5x3 affair. And then Zeus turns up and it all starts going haywire. Reels start moving around, symbols expand and multipliers are flying all over the place. Here’s a breakdown of what the big guy has been up to this time.
Wild Link Feature
When Zeus turns up on the reels, he unleashes his fury on the game. Zeus symbols act as a wild in the standard sense across the board. They will substitute for all others, apart from the bonus symbols, and help create wins where they can.
They can be single icons or stretch across the reels. But when he lands on the 1st reel, there’s an exciting plot twist about to unfold. Zeus covers the entire 1st reel and the character comes to life. He fires his lightning bolt to increase reels 2-5 from the regular 3 rows to 4.
This increases the number of symbols in play and creates more paylines. He might just do this again and again until the maximum of 6 rows are in play. And then the prize symbols come into action.
The blue prize symbols each show a winning amount. These can appear at any time but during the wild link feature, you win the values of any prize symbols that land on any adjacent reels. And if that wasn’t enough, it is also possible that the brooding deity will hand out a 2x or 3x multiplier as well.
Free Spins Bonus
To make your way to the free spins round, you’ll be hoping for 3 Parthenon symbols to set up camp on your screen. Everybody gets 10 free spins and hopefully a chance to see some very decent prizes.
The standard spins during this feature are regular spins except that you aren’t paying for them, obviously! But once again, the whole show kind of relies on Zeus to appear and make things extra special—it’s no wonder this guy’s got a major ego problem.
When he lands on the 1st reel during this feature, the wild link effect is released once more. But this time, there’s a chance that the grid might grow towards the heavens and stop at a massive 9 rows. That’s how a max 50 paylines becomes possible.
With each spin, a different reel is assigned as a prize reel. The gold prize symbols cover the reel. And if they land on an adjacent reel to other prize symbols (i.e. there are no reels without a prize symbol present between them and Zeus) then they all get added together to create some impressive payouts.
Pick a Win Jackpot Game
There are 4 different jackpots available on the Wild Link Zeus game. They are the mini, minor, major and mega prizes. These prizes may differ from site to site, depending on where in the world you’re playing. However, it is possible to see the prize totals double or triple when Zeus hands out his multipliers during the game.
You’ll notice that the prize symbols fly towards Zeus at the side of the screen. Not much seems to happen after the event. But every so often, the divine ruler will get a bit of a twitch in his lightning rod when the prizes hit and he’ll drag you off to the ‘Pick Me’ game.
It’s a slight misnomer to suggest that you can pick your win. Naturally, we’d all opt for the mega jackpot, thank you very much. Instead, the feature follows a time-honoured system of picking random symbols on the grid, which reveal the jackpot type they represent.
When 3 are matched, you get to keep that prize. But semantics aside, it could still be an extremely useful sum of cash making its way to your balance.
