With cascades of stony blocks keeping you just one step away from the hall of the king of Gods, will the Zeus Ancient Fortunes mobile slot bring you glory and heavenly wins?
Zeus Ancient Fortunes is a 5 reel 3 rows 10 fixed betlines video slot which pays from left to right, and from right to left. Winning symbols on paylines will be destroyed from the screen and a multiplier increase on each consecutive win.
Anyone who has played with avalanching reels will recognise the stone blocks tumbling down from above to fall on the reels. From Play’n GO’s Contact slot to NetEnt’s Asgardian Stones, this is all too familiar.
But that’s not to say it is not a very well crafted slot game. The thunderbolts in the background give this casino game a grave atmosphere, whilst the golden hues make you feel good about heading into the realm of this dangerous machine.
And that’s unusual for an avalanching reel slot, because mostly it’s trying NOT to give you too many wins. That would be because, on every win, the symbols explode, and the multiplier increases.
Pay both ways machines tend to have more wins because you have the opportunity to line up winning symbols from left to right and from right to left.
However, the 10 paylines means that you rarely get much further than the 2x multiplier on a second win, so actually, they’ve cleverly made you think this is easier, but it isn’t.
This Zeus Ancient Fortunes slot game is medium in volatility, meaning it’s mostly just giving you little wins to grant you the possibility of more in the free spin bonus round.
That’s a question you might ask yourself when you’ve made over 150 spins and still nothing to show for it. But the fact you’ve made it here shows this is an even-tempered god who is happy to give you little fortunes to top you up from time to time.
Don’t go chasing the free spins bonus rounds. They are hard to find. In a way this feels a little old fashioned, but we didn’t mind it too much. If you think you’ll be frustrated, better try something with quicker action like the Cash Vandal slot.
However, if you like the slow burn of trying to find the really big treasure within a mobile casino game, then give this Zeus Ancient Fortunes a chance.
Because you get a 3x multiplier on every win during the free spins, and the multiplier can increase to up to 21x, which is more than in the famous Gonzo’s Quest.
Fans of that game will certainly enjoy this Zeus Ancient Fortunes slot, which walks a lot of the same beats, but with a beautiful ancient Greek mythical slot theme.

Wilds: The stone head of Zeus is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols including the scatter. It doesn't have a pay however.
Avalanching Reels: Triple Edge call them Rolling Reels, some call them tumbling reels, but it's all the same thing. On a win, the winning symbols explode and more come tumbling down from above, giving you a second chance at getting another win. This continues until no more wins are found.
In the base game, the multiplier will increase for each consecutive win by 1x, 2x, 3x, and 7x.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 golden Zeus scatter symbols trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins. The avalanching reels are still in play only now the multiplier is much bigger.
One win will get you an automatic 3x multiplier, and then increase to 7x, 11x and 21x on each consecutive win.
This Zeus Ancient Fortunes slot on mobile looks the part and certainly has the wins to attract the name of the king of the Greek Gods.
Much like all games with avalanching reels, it can be a little frustrating, mostly because it feels easy to get a 5 of a kind win with a 1x multiplier, but rarely possible to do the same with a 21x.
Yet, the possibility is there and you got to love the thrill of watching those blocks tumble down into place.
We've taken a star away as it's not quite different enough to the NetEnt Gonzo's Quest slot machine to give it the full 5 stars of originality. Yet with slightly bigger wins, we may be tempted to walk into this temple again, especially as the reels pay both ways.
