This is the third Zeus game to be produced by WMS. Zeus has been a huge brand in Las Vegas for many years and you can easily see how successful, judging by the number of other companies that have taken the theme and copied it.
For most players in Las Vegas, the WMS versions of Zeus are still the best ones out there. This latest version, which is called Zeus 3 has a completely different format from the others and we are lucky enough to have a free version to play here.
Zeus 3 has a completely different format from the classic video slot machine found in casinos around the world. Instead of a 5x3 or 5x4 format, this one is more like a triangle, with 2 lines on the first reel, then 3 lines, then 4 lines etc.
In total, there are 6 reels and 192 winning lines are possible. So, as you can imagine, this slot machine game is highly volatile.
It is easy to go for long periods without winning money, but then when a big win comes in, it can be really big.

I have to say, when I have played Zeus 3 in Las Vegas, or Atlantic City, I have found it really difficult to hit the bonus round and get those big real money wins. That said, I have hit it a few times and it is well worth the wait.
The bonus round is great fun, because it reverses the reel order. This means that reel number one, suddenly has 6 lines on it, the second reel has 5 lines on it and so forth. This mean the number of winning lines becomes enormous.
I forget exactly how many (potential) winning lines there are on the bonus game, but whenever I play it I seem to get a big win.
As a high volatility game, Zeus 3 is one of those slots that needs a careful budget applied to it. As a penny player, I tend to just stick $20 into the machine and once that is gone, it is gone.
