Dare you enter the golden gates and come face to face with the king of the Greek gods? It may just be worth your time in this Zeus Lightning Power Reels slot game.
There’s no ambrosia and fluffy white clouds in this version of heaven. The only way you are going to get through these metal gates is by going hand in hand against the king of lightning himself, old Zeus.
This isn’t the first casino slot where you go head to toe with the titan, from the original Zeus slot game or the Zeus Ancient Fortunes slot, it’s a popular theme for a reason. Who doesn’t want to get through those golden gates and win all the powers of the ancients?
Red Tiger Gaming has done an excellent job of creating tension with beautiful symbols and animations that make you feel like there is a huge amount at stake with every spin.
Zeus himself is the wild symbol and comes stacked 3 high. What you might find odd as you play on this Zeus Lightning Power Reels slot is that you have 7 reels and 6 rows of golden and bronze symbols – so this must be a huge Megaways slot or at least have 1024 ways to win or something, right??
Nope. You have only got 30 paylines in this Zeus Lightning slot. Making the wins surprisingly difficult, as you need 6 or 7 of a kind wins to get anything worthwhile on the paytable. That or wins on all 30 paylines at once.
And the only way to do that is by getting the stacked Zeus symbol to land fully on the reels. When he does, your prayers will be answered because he will expand one symbol over 3 or all 7 reels. Why is that good?
Because these symbol pay like scatters. They don’t need to be near each other, on the first reel, or even touching. They will pay out over all 30 paylines, all the time. It’s like the Book of Ra Deluxe video slot, but it could be any symbol and in the base game and free spins. Amazing right?
When you load up the Zeus Lightning Power Reels slot it will tell you can win 4,500x your bet. But when you look at the stats, you’ll see that it can be 5,037x your bet.
Which is impressive, except when you look into it you’ll also see that the RTP is low 93.73%. Less impressive. No wonder they undersell the top win, no one will get anywhere near 5,000x.
But you do get glimmers of hope during the free spins bonus round that you trigger with 3 scatters. At this point, you can get up to 3 Zeus wild landing on any reel, unlike the base game where you can only get 1.
The more Zeus wilds, the better. A second or third Zeus could give you more expanded scatter pay reels or even upgrade the symbols to a better one on the paytable.
We can’t deny we didn’t have a good time, just be sure to use the low minimum bet of 0.10 wisely, as this can be one tight slot machine.

Expanding Lightning Wild: Zeus is a 1x3 wild symbol and he will substitute for all symbols to create a win over this 30 paylines slot game. When he lands in full view on the reels, he summons lighting and expands the same random symbol over a random number of reels - from 3 to all 7.
The expanded symbols pay like scatter pay. They don't need to be on a winline or even in adjacent positions.
Scatters and Free Spins: 2 free spin symbols pay out 2x your bet. three free spin symbols pay out 5x your bet plus 8 free spins. At the start of the free spins, two more Zeus symbols are added to the reels, increasing your chance of catching more than one Zeus symbols. Depending on how many Zeus symbols you land will depend on what happens.
The first Zeus will expand as many symbols as per the base game. The second or third Zeus symbol will either expand more symbols with the same symbol or upgrade the symbols into more profitable symbols on the paytable.
Gamble Wheel: You can gamble any win. This will take you to spin a wheel with green or red segments. How much of it is red or green will depend on how much you want to win. You can have a 50/50 chance and double your bet, or win more but have a bigger red segment and more chance of losing the gamble.
If it lands on green, you win your prize, if it lands on red you lose your win.
We really wish the RTP of this Zeus Lightning Power Reels online slot had been just a little higher, and then maybe we could have given it 4 stars.
Unfortunately, with a low RTP of 93.73%, which includes both the base game and any jackpot contributions, you have to admit that your best chance of winning 5,000x your bet is by winning one of the Red Tiger Daily Jackpots.
But there is something exciting about watching Zeus land on the reels and seeing those expanding scatter pay symbols show up over so many reels and paylines. We did have fun, even after we realised that winning is much harder than in the Book of Dead slot or the Book of Oz game.
