Fortunate Zeus Slots

To say Zeus is fortunate is a bit of an understatement. He's the most powerful God and he can shoot lightning from his fingers. Enough said. So it's no surprise RealTime Gaming - RTG - decided to design an entire slot around the God of Gods. Right away players will see a stunning background of clouds amongst a pink and blue sky. The large pillars that frame the slot itself are a nice touch and the symbols are beautifully designed, bright and colorful - certainly fit for a God. Even the music is perfect. It's that right amount of dramatic and tense that players will feel a little extra bit of excitement with each spin. But can players come away with their piece of Zeus' fortunes? Let's dive in and take a look!

Bets and Paylines

Fortunate Zeus is a 5 reel slot with 50 paylines. The bet sizes range from $5 to $50, so if you're playing with a smaller bankroll this one might be a bit out of your range.

Play Symbols

Fortunate Zeus features a wonderful collection of premium and non-premium symbols…

ZEUS is top symbol. 5 of these and you'll be struck with all the power of Zeus himself!

The RED HEADED GODDESS is second symbol.

Followed by the BRUNETTE GODDESS.

And the final premium is the BLONDE GODDESS.

The non-premium symbols are the standard TEN, JACK, QUEEN, KING and ACE playing cards.

The HAND AND LIGHTNING BOLT is the WILD symbol. It substitutes for all symbols EXCEPT the scatter and orb symbols. The Wild symbols only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

FORTUNATE ZEUS is the SCATTER symbol. 3 or more of these trigger the free games.

The LIGHTNING ORB is a special symbol. 6 or more of these trigger the hold and spin feature.

Special and Bonus Features

Fortunate Zeus has two features players should take note of…

  • Free Spins

This feature triggers when a player spins into 3 or more FORTUNATE ZEUS scatter symbols. They will be awarded 6 free games. 3 or more FORTUNATE ZEUS scatter symbols will award players an additional 3 free spins.

  • Fortune Link Feature

This is Fortunate Zeus' version of the popular hold and spin feature. If a player spins into 6 or more LIGHTNING ORBS, the Fortune Link feature triggers. The Lightning Orbs will stay in place and the player will receive one re-spin. If more LIGHTNING ORBS appear, the player is given another re-spin. If no more Lightning Orbs appear or the player fills up all the spots the game ends. If a player does fill up all spots they awarded the Super Grand jackpot!

To Play Or Not To Play?

That is the question. And the answer is… yes, with some reservations. Fortunate Zeus has a lot of good things going for it, but we were a little underwhelmed with the special features. Only 6 free spins - and no multipliers - isn't that appealing and the Fortune Link only gives players one re-spin. Typically, these hold and spin features give players 3 re-spins. But the higher bet sizes can lead to some nice wins which might cancel out the underwhelming bonus features. All in all, Fortunate Zeus is worth some of your time during your next session, but probably shouldn't be the featured slot you spin.
