Zeus – Ancient Greece and its God of Thunder may seem to be intriguing, but the design, gameplay, and statistics of this dull slot machine fail to attract with their combined efforts. We are not enraged, but rather disappointed.

Review of the Greek god Zeus
Theme and plot of the story
Zeus, King of the Gods and Lord of Thunder, was the most powerful deity on Mount Olympus. Mythology, with its instantly recognizable imagery, is a timeless topic for slot machines.
That is the basis on which the Zeus slot machine from Habanero operates. There is a variety of typical Ancient Greek objects on display, including shields, busts, and pottery, as well as a large number of Ace to Ten symbols printed in a pseudo-greek angular script.
Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.
The visuals and animations are, without a doubt, excellent. The animations are fluid and professional-looking.
It is regrettable that the real designs for the slot do not correspond to the level of technological skill. The photographs are uninspiring and boring. The slot as a whole lacks the feeling of personality that can make other Habanero slots so entertaining, and this is especially true of the bonus round.
The sound effects make little attempt to be in keeping with the concept and are more or less bog-standard slot machine sounds, which is disappointing.
There are 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 win-lines available in the primary game, which is a standard 5×3 slot machine with 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 win-lines available depending on your preference as a player.
Aside from that, the game only includes a free spins bonus and very few additional features overall.
In as a consequence, the game’s gameplay isn’t really interesting. When played in a slot with a bit more character, this might be forgiven a little more easily.
Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.
There are just two special symbols in the game.
There is a Wild emblem, which has the image of the titular Zeus painted on it. It functions as a standard wild symbol, replacing for all other symbols with the exception of the Scatter symbol. As soon as you complete a winning combination with him, his animation becomes bland.
If you hit a win-line with multiple Wild symbols, the payout can be extremely lucrative – 15 times your bet per line for two Wild symbols, 150 times your bet per line for three, 1500 times your bet per line for four, and a whopping 15, 000 times your bet per line for five Wild symbols on one win-line.
The other sign is a Scatter symbol, which pays off anytime two or more of them appear on the screen. The rewards for this are much smaller than those for the wild (hit five and you win just 200 times your bet, hit four and you win just 5 times your bet).
If you land three or more Scatter symbols on the reels, you will also be awarded the free spins. This is where the huge victories are achieved. Depending on whether you receive three, four, or five scatters, you may earn 5, 15, or 50 free spins. Despite the fact that you cannot retrigger the feature, every time you strike a scatter symbol during the free spins, you will get an additional free spin.
During the free spins round, all prizes are quadrupled, including the jackpot.
In addition, there is a jackpot function that is triggered at random. Each stake generates 0.45 percent of the total revenue, which is divided among three separate prizes. In order to increase your chances of winning a jackpot, the more money you give to it.
Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance
The return to player (RTP) of the game is just 96.03 percent, which is very low and more or less what you would expect from something that is so mediocre that it hurts.
The variance is likewise in the middle of the range. Although this may be changed by betting on a different number of lines with the same total wager, it is not recommended.
That’s a good thing, since bet controls make it really simple to customize everything. Every sum between the maximum of £/€/$250.00 per spin and the minimum of £/€/$0.01 per spin is available to wager on practically every spin.
In terms of design and functionality, the Zeus slot machine from Habanero is completely ordinary.
From the drab design to the copy-pasted artwork to the absence of a soundtrack, there isn’t anything that sticks out about it.
Even the volatility and return on investment (RTI) are in the center of the road. Those who are attempting to remain awake while playing this slot should avoid it at all costs, in our opinion.
