Microgaming Releases Hot New Ancient Fortunes: Zeus Video Slot ( Click to Enlarge )

A new entry into the Greek mythology slot sub-genre has been made by Microgaming with their most recent release. This comes in the form of Ancient Fortunes: Zeus, a video slot that ties together a lot of features to give the gameplay a ton of actions. The visual approach is pretty interesting as well because it manages to stay clean and somewhat minimalist without looking plain or boring.

Jump Into Greek Mythology and Tons of Action

With the Ancient Fortunes: Zeus video slot, Microgaming has given players a chance to take advantage of a very fast-paced style of gameplay with a volatility that’s a little more on the lower end. That’s not particularly popular right now, especially among top developers that seem to focus more on high-volatility titles with huge top jackpots.

In this way, the Ancient Fortunes: Zeus online slot is a breath of fresh air from the trends that have come to dominate recent releases to the point of being repetitive and predictable.

This title combines strong graphics with a minimalist approach so that the player isn’t overwhelmed by flash with no substance, and at the same time, the gameplay provides a lot of substance on its own for players.

Rolling Reels and the Multiplier Trial

The very first thing that observant players will notice is that there are some numbers in boxes listed up over the game board. These are multipliers for the Rolling Reels feature. Here’s what you need to know about how this feature works:

  • Whenever you get a winning combination, it’s paid out as usual, but the winning symbols disappear afterwards.
  • This causes new symbols to roll down in their place to form chances for new winning combinations.
  • Each time you get a set of Rolling Reels, the multiplier increases one spot to the right according to the numbers listed above the reels (1x to 2x to 3x to 7x).
  • Once the multiplier gets to 7x, it will stay there for the remainder of the feature.
  • The Rolling Reels feature continues until you have no new winning combinations. The multiplier returns to 1x, and gameplay proceeds as usual.

The important thing to note about this feature is that it drives a majority of the gameplay as a whole. That means that you have more opportunities than virtually any other game out there to get several wins on the same paid spin along with multipliers worth up to 7x for those same spins.

Free Spins and Bigger Multipliers

Players can win up to 20 free spins at once with this game by picking up several of Zeus’ lightning bolt symbols at the same time. From here, there’s a multiplier increase across all of the Rolling Reels payouts so that things go from 1x/2x/3x/7x to a whooping 3x/7x/11x/21x. This is a little more than a 3x overall multiplier on average, and it’s a cool way to add even more weight and value to the key bonus round in this game.

A Triple Edge Studio Production

Even though this new game is only available through Microgaming Quickfire-powered casinos, it was produced by Triple Edge Studios as a part of their exclusive development deal with Microgaming. This is a deal that they started within the past year and a half or so, and it’s been very fruitful as they have added many high-quality titles to the Quickfire platform.

We love what they have done with their selection by adding more to their platform through third-party providers, some of which have exclusive deals like Triple Edge Studios to produce exciting, high-end titles like Ancient Fortunes: Zeus. We’re sure that we’ll continue to see more games like this that push the envelope while offering players exciting opportunities to get paid.
