Godly Wins Await in Microgaming's New Ancient Fortunes: Zeus Slot

The Isle of Man-based producer of online casino content, Microgaming, has announced the launch of its latest video slot.

Microgaming’s newest addition to its rich portfolio of slot games is titled Ancient Fortunes: Zeus, and is developed exclusively for the renowned developer by Triple Edge Studios, an independent gaming studio behind such popular titles as Book of Oz and Wicked Tales: Dark Red.

Ancient Fortunes: Zeus is inspired by Greek mythology, and promises to take players to an enchanted journey to Mount Olympus, the home of the gods. This funky slot game has five reels, four rows, and a total of 10 fixed pay-lines, combined with a dynamic gameplay, stunning visuals and powerful mechanics.

During the Main Game, players will see colossal blocks of stone falling down on the reel, creating a wall of Rolling Reels along the way, which can result in huge payouts. Each of the block falling onto the grid will contain a beautiful artwork showing different deities and beings from Greek mythology.

Zeus is the game’s Wild symbols, substituting for all other icons and completing additional winning combinations, while lightning bolts appear as the Scatters, used to trigger the Free Spins round.

Ancient Fortunes: Zeus pays both ways, and whenever a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the grid, with new ones falling into their place, filling the grid to possibly create additional winning lines. But that’s not all, as a lucrative multiplier trail builds up with each consecutive win, going up to 7x in the Main Game.

The chance of grabbing ancient riches further increases when three or more lightning bolt symbols find their place on the reels. This will activate the Free Spins round, awarding players 10, 15 or 20 spins depending on the number of Scatters used to trigger the feature. A Wild symbol landing alongside the Scatters can prove to be extremely lucrative, as it can award up to 50 spins! During the Free Spins, the multiplier trail can build up to 21x, while adding additional three or more Scatters will re-trigger the round.

Ancient Fortunes: Zeus has already gone live, and is available at any online casino powered by Microgaming.

Commenting on the launch of this game, David Reynolds Games Publisher at Microgaming said  Ancient Fortunes: Zeus was a striking Greek mythology themed slot, expertly crafted by the team at Triple Edge Studios.

He explained that combining the Rolling Reels mechanic with bidirectional paylines gave the game an electrifying edge, amplified by a multiplier trail boosting potential wins, while the engaging free spins feature would see the action and wins soar, with a maximum 21x multiplier, offering big win potential.

Reynolds pointed out players ascending to Mount Olympus were in for a truly legendary gaming experience, rich in rewarding features and stunning visuals.

Brendan Walton Creative Design Lead at Triple Edge Studios stated his company was delighted to part the clouds to reveal Ancient Fortunes: Zeus, set in the rich and enchanting world of Greek myth.

The launch of Ancient Fortunes: Zeus comes only a couple of days after Microgaming announced its games would go live with 888 Casino.
