SpinPlay Games have brought back their Wild Link feature in this 5 reel slot. Wild Link Zeus sees the Greek god of the sky granting multipliers and expanding the reels to add more paylines every time he appears.
There are also four fixed jackpots up for grabs in this high volatility game. These, along with the possible cash prizes in the Wild Link feature, explain why the awards for regular symbol wins seem a little on the low side.
The symbols themselves are card ranks 9 to A and four themed premiums. The maximum payout for these is 5 x the bet for five of a kind of Pegasus. The betting range is from 0.20 to 50.00.
Zeus is the Wild symbol. He can land in sizes of 1x1, 1x2 and 1x3 on any reel. He substitutes for all the regular symbols to help form wins and will also award any lucky player who manages to land three or more a prize, up to 10 x the stake for five. But when Zeus lands on reel one, he really gets to show off his powers, as I’ll explain below.
Glowing orbs with cash values land in both the Free Spins and the base game, and these prize symbols are part of the Wild Link feature. The Scatter is a temple, and three in view award ten Free Spins.
When a Wild symbol lands on reel 1, the Wild Link feature is activated. The Wild will then nudge or expand to cover the entire reel. Reels 2 to 5 will also expand, either by 2 or 3 rows in the base game or up to 6 rows in the Free Spins.
All glowing orb prize symbols on adjacent reel, starting from reel 2, are then collected. And if there are more Wilds on the reels, they can stand in for the prize symbols to keep the link going. Any wins from the Wild Link feature can be randomly boosted by x 2 or x 3.
The Prize Pick Bonus Game can trigger at random in the base game spin or at the end of the Wild Link feature. This gives the player a chance to win one of four fixed jackpots; the Mini, Minor, Major and Mega prizes, which pay 20x, 50x, 500x and 5,000x the stake, respectively.
The Free Spins trigger with ten free spins when there are three temple bonus scatters anywhere in view. During the bonus round, a random reel turns into a Wild Prize reel on every spin. This reel holds only prize symbols which also act as Wilds to help form regular wins. Reel 1 can't become a Wild Prize reel, so the Wild Link feature can still trigger in the Free Spins, and does, more often than in the base game.
SpinPlay Games’ Wild Link feature has already had one outing with Wild Link Cleopatra. And if you enjoyed that game, you’ll love Wild Link Zeus, with its tweaks and improvements to gameplay. Just remember, there was never any guarantee the Greek gods would answer prayers, so always set a loss limit before playing.
