32Red Casino has just added the latest Microgaming “Rolling Reels” slot titled Ancient Fortunes: Zeus to their casino which has been developed by Triple Edge Studios whose previous releases include Playboy Gold, Bookie of Odds and Halloween.
The Ancient Fortunes: Zeus slot is a 5×3 reel 10 payline slot that pays in both directions, with a Rolling Reels feature which you may know as Tumbling Reels or an Avalanche style from other slot providers.
Make no mistakes here, there is definitely a lot of inspiration taken from classic online slots like Gonzo’ Quest herewith rising multipliers (7x multipliers in the base game), even bigger multipliers (up to 21x multipliers) in the free spin round and the cascading/tumbling/rolling reels.
Obviously, the theme is totally different and the payline format has been altered but to try and differentiate this slot it looks like Microgaming and Triple Edge have ramped up the multipliers along with the possibility of triggering the main bonus round with up to 50 free spins, and there are re-triggers too in the bonus round.
But basically, if you have played Gonzo’s Quest you’ll either feel instantly at home and love this style of slot or feel this is just more of the same from a different provider.
The key question is really have they made enough changes and is this actually better than Gonzo’s Quest? Unfortunately, we didn’t think so, if you are a new player and treat this as a standalone release then it’s fine, the graphics are good, the bonus round is fun, but put the 2 games together in a casino lobby and I would be choosing Gonzo’s Quest!
