Rise of Zeus Slot Review

We do a lot of stupid things when we’re young and one incident that stands out in my mind was licking a 9-volt battery. It wasn’t the most dangerous or stupid thing I’ve done, let’s just be honest, but it wasn’t particularly smart. 🔋

I remember the tingling sensation and the metallic taste, and how the charge shot through my tongue. Luckily, as I grew older, I found far more appealing things to do with my tongue which were far more stimulating. 👅

As Deep Purple once put it:

*So we put her on the hit list
Of a common cunning linguist
A master of many tongues *

But I’ve seriously digressed. As usual.

The protagonist of today’s review is none other than a lightning bolt-wielding deity. This is Rise of Zeus slot and it comes to us from Belatra Games. ⚡️


I expected to see a toga-clad deity clutching a lightning bolt when I fired this game up. But no; there’s a massive 5-reel 4-row grid flanked by fiery braziers and statues.

However… you will occasionally see Zeus peeking over the top of the grid with a blue lightning bolt in each hand. Big Brother’s watching you! Keep reading to find out when he appears.

The mobile experience is simply superb – the game jumps off the screen, and those large symbols pop! Landscape mode is cool, but I preferred playing with the phone held vertically.

Now let’s check out the stats to see what foundation Rise of Zeus slot has been built on.

  • Paylines: 25
  • RTP: 96.02%
  • Max Multiplier: 10,000x
  • Max Win: $250,000
  • Volatility Rate: High



The Wild symbol – a “W” with a wreath around it – replaces all high and low-paying symbols. If a Wild substitutes for a symbol and is involved in a win, the win amount will be boosted. As for how much the win amount will be increased, here’s a list:

  • 1 Wild boosts a win by 2x
  • 2 Wilds boosts a win by 4x
  • 3 Wilds boosts a win by 8x
  • 4 Wilds boosts a win by 16x
  • 5 Wilds boosts a win by 32x


The Golden Scatter symbol is Zeus and he’ll randomly transform into a symbol that’s not a Wild or a Scatter. The Golden Scatter will stick to the position it lands on, but any symbols that are the same as the one the Scatter transformed into will also stick, along with Wilds.

That’s when you get a series of Sticky Spins which continues until the sticky symbols or the Wild drops off the grid.

If, during a Sticky Spin, an additional Golden Scatter lands, these will also reveal a random symbol. If that symbol is worth more than the random symbol that the original Golden Scatter revealed, then all of these symbols will convert to the new, higher-paying one.


Landing a Silver or Golden Scatter in the base game fills a spot on the meter above the grid. Fill all 3 spots and you’ll be awarded the Free Spins round with 6 spins. Hmmm, that’s not a lot.

At the start of each round, a Golden Scatter will appear on a random reel position, which will kick-start the Sticky Spin cycle. Each Free Spins round is a Sticky Spins cycle; just as you’d find in the base game.

Landing additional Scatters now will once again fill the meter, and 3 extra spins will be awarded when the meter is full – a maximum of 15 spins will be awarded per Free Spins feature.


When you see the pissed-off-looking deity peeking over the reels, that might herald one or more Wild symbols being thrown onto the grid. If this happens during a Sticky Spins cycle, all of the open cells could be filled with Wilds or populated with the current sticky symbol.


See that Star icon to the left? That’s the Buy Bonus and it allows you to enter the Free Spins round for the cost of 100x your bet. I kept using the Buy Bonus to see Zeus soaring up to the heavens in the animation. So cool!


I played hundreds of rounds of Rise of Zeus slot and it performed in a godly manner. And by that, I don’t mean it was capricious or threw a tantrum for whatever reason – I mean that it performed immaculately. Praise Belatra!

Maximum Win

Slot disavowers will be silenced by the heroic $250,000 possible payout that Rise of Zeus slot offers. This comes about when you combine the celestial 10,000x max multiplier with the $25 max bet (or you can bet from a mere $0.25).


Rise of Zeus slot has a strong sense of drama, and I love the work Belatra has put into the animations. It’s such a fun game to interact with.

But fun isn’t what most of you are here for; you want to make money. And lots of it. And there’s no denying that a 10,000x multiplier could get you there, and I doubt many would squawk if they won the $250k top prize.

But the reality is that you’ll be spending your time collecting what you can in the base game and Free Spins round.

The base game offers Wilds that bring multipliers to winning paylines, as well as Sticky Spins – both of which can boost your bottom line. My only criticism of the Free Spins round is how few spins you get to start, but I tended to score additional ones fairly regularly.

So, in summary, I think that Rise of Zeus slot ticks a lot of boxes, and it could appeal to a broad gamut of players.
