Kronos is a slot game developed by WMS Gaming that has cut its teeth at Jackpot Party and is a 5 reel, 20 pay-line slot based on an ancient Greek religion and mythological theme.
In ancient Greek religion, Kronos was regarded as the father of Zeus. He was the leader of the first generation of the Titans and ruled during the mythological Golden Age before being overthrown by Zeus.
The Kronos slot game uses all the imagery associated with this legend to offer game play that will appeal to fans of other slots with a Greek mythological theme including Play ‘n’ Go’s Myth and Triton’s Treasure. WMS Gaming has also released other similar slot titles such as Zeus and Kingdom of Titans. Fans of those two titles will no doubt be drawn to Kronos.
Kronos remains very true to its land-based origins. The entire visual aspect of the slot is very suitably divine with clouds providing the background and audio will also please players of the land-based version.
Symbols in Kronos include Kronos himself, Pegasus, golden medallions, spades, hearts, clubs and wilds. Kronos symbols pay right to left as well as left to right in standard game play.
The scatter symbols are represented by the golden medallions and the player must hit three or more of these to activate the free spins bonus feature. The number of free spins the player is awarded in this free spins bonus feature depends on how many scatter symbols the player hits to activate the free spins bonus feature. If the player activates the free spins bonus feature with three golden medallion scatter symbols then the player will be awarded with 10 free spins. If the player activates the free spins bonus feature with four golden medallion scatter symbols then the player will be awarded with 25 free spins. If the player activates the free spins bonus feature with five golden medallion scatter symbols then the player will be awarded with 100 free spins.
Not only will players have the chance to win up to 100 free spins when they activate the free spins bonus feature but additional wild symbols will also be added to the game giving players the opportunity to win bigger prizes.
Players can also expect big wins when they hit five Kronos symbols on reels 1 and 2 or 3 and 4. Players will need to hit Kronos symbols adjacently on three reels to achieve winning combinations. The Kronos symbols are also stacked during game play. The wild symbols substitute for all other symbols to complete winning combinations and this can lead to big wins.
Kronos plays very close to the way that Zeus plays and some people might even consider it as a prequel to Zeus with Kronos being the father of Zeus. However, the main difference is the fact that the Kronos symbols pay right to left as well as left to right and that is what gives Kronos the slight edge on Zeus.
