Zeus III

About Zeus III Slot

Zeus III is an online casino slot game with 40 paylines and a Free Spins bonus round. This is the follow up to previous successful games Zeus and Zeus II.

The gods of ancient Greece are not happy that you beat them in Zeus and Zeus II. Now they have set up a challenge: play Zeus III and see how lucky you are! Spin the reels as you work your way through ancient Greece in search of even more treasure than before. But be careful, the unusual reel structure of this game could be your downfall.


Zeus III is the latest iteration of the Zeus series from WMS Gaming. Its most unusual feature is its progressive reel structure in which the first of the six reels has only two rows. The number of rows progressively increases across all of the reels so that the final reel has seven rows. Altogether, there are 192 fixed paylines to work with.



At first glance, you may wonder how you could actually win in Zeus III given that the first real only has two rows. But spin a couple of times and you'll get the hang of it. Before spinning, you can adjust your Bet Multiplier by using the + and - buttons at the bottom of your screen.

To the far right is the blue 'Spin' button; clicking it will produce one manual spin. To the far left is the smaller 'Autospin' button; clicking it will allow you to designate a number of automatic spins the game will make for you. Just above the 'Autospin' button you will find the 'Paytable' button.


There are two Wild symbols in Zeus III. The standard Wild is the Greek temple; it substitutes for all others except the Scatter symbol. Zeus himself acts as the second Wild, but only if he covers an entire reel at once.

Zeus' hand holding a lightning bolt is the Scatter symbol in this game. If it appears, it could trigger the Free Spins bonus, depending on the number of symbols you land.


The Free Spins bonus is activated by three or more Scatter symbols landing on any of the reels during standard play. The number of free spins awarded is commensurate with the number of Scatter symbols you land. Three Scatters award 10 free spins; four Scatters award 25 free spins and a 10X multiplier; five Scatters award 50 free spins and a 50X multiplier. Additional free spins can be won by landing three or more Scatter symbols during bonus play.

Another unique feature of the Free Spins bonus is that the reel structure is opposite that of base play. In other words, reel 1 has seven rows while real 6 has two.


Only combinations of three or more like symbols originating from the far left position are counted as wins. Only one win per payline is awarded in both standard and bonus play. Should the game malfunction in any way, play will automatically cease and all previous wins voided. Your balance will be reset to whatever it was at the start of play.
