Zentaurus slot by Merkur brings us to the world of ancient Gods although with an unfamiliar name they've made up. You get the typical foreboding sky behind the reels and dramatic music with the traditional tapping as reels stop, but as usual Merkur don't really go a great deal on appearance, more the mechanic. This developer does like the dark themes as we saw with Vampires, Amulet of the Pharaoh and Guardians of the Monastery and this Zentaurus game is a HD revamp of the older version. Has Zentaurus been sent from the skies to collect our bankroll though?
Zentaurus slot has 20 fixed paying lines over a standard grid of 5 reels of 3 rows each. The symbols all appear singly and let me start by telling you Zentaurus is all about the Wilds! The main man himself is the Wild and will land you a huge 5,000x stake for all 5 on a line, but usually he is 2x so a win with one will be at 2x, up to 16x if 4 Wilds appear with another symbol on the same line. The other 5-of-a-kinds are 200x Mountains, 80x Harp, 32x Vase, 24x Fruit with six card values paying 16x, 8x or 4x for a full line. No random features here but we do get a potentially rewarding bonus.
For these we need to land 3 Gold Coin scatters on the centre 3 reels. You get 10 free games which can be retriggered and you will notice the Wild Zentaurus now appear stacked which really helps given the mechanic in play here. Any win will freeze the symbols in place and the remaining tiles respin until no further winning symbols are added, like the base game in Jack Hammer does. Wins can be scarce though but when it pays, you will really be blessed by the Gods.
This Zenataurus slot is very volatile for a 20-line game but has huge potential if you manage to line those Wilds up as theoretically you could get more than one 5,000x Wild line in the bonus. The spins can pay very little though and do on many occasions so be prepared for a rapid drain of bankroll if not landing any big base game hits or bonus rounds. The graphics and animations are pretty basic but this is a slot which needs no frills and has a reliable 95.96% RTP as well. Take this odd-looking God on at your peril...
