Amazing Link Zeus slot REVIEW
Amazing Link Zeus ReviewMicrogaming partner, SpinPlay, is still in the embryonic stage. Their slots are like cells dividing off each other as they recapitulate through the stages of slot evolution. Amazing Link Zeus seeks to capitalize on the recent Streak Respins trend, and they’ve somehow managed to come up with yet another name for the classic feature.
Unfortunately, that’s pretty much the only original contribution you’ll find in this game. The “Amazing Link” Hold & Respins feature itself comes with no original twists, and the top 5,000x jackpot doesn’t make it stick out all that much either. The fact that you can also win the jackpots in a random Pick’em Game adds to the experience, and your chances of triggering the feature is heightened in the bonus round.

Amazing Link Zeus Features
The Zeus Wild symbol can land as a single 1x1 symbol, or as an expanded 1x3 version that’s either fully or partially present on the reels. Either way, the wild will step in for all regular pay symbols to help you form winning combos. It’s also the highest value symbol of the bunch, awarding 10x payouts for 5 on a payline.
The Amazing Link feature is a variant of the classic Streak Respins feature (also called Hold & Respins, Hold & Win and god knows what else). You need at least 6 Orb cash symbols on the same spin to trigger the feature, and you start out with 3 respins. Only new money orbs and blanks will land, and the respins tally resets to 3 for every new money symbol you land.
All money symbols, including the triggering symbols, become sticky on the reels, and you can also land Mini, Minor and Major jackpot orbs. The feature ends when you’ve run out of respins, or if you fill the screen with 15 money and jackpot orbs. The latter lands you the Mega Jackpot worth 5,000x your stake, and you can also win multiple smaller jackpots as follows:
Mini Jackpot = 20x your stake.
Minor Jackpot = 50x your stake.
Major Jackpot = 500x your stake.
There is one more way to land jackpots in this game, and it’s via the Zeus Pick’em bonus game. The feature triggers at random times, and it’s a classic pick’em game where you need to match up 3 identical jackpot symbols to win the corresponding jackpot. All 4 of the fixed jackpots described above can be won this way.
Finally, you will trigger the Free Spins round when you land at least 3 Marble Temple scatters on the same spin. This gives you 10 free spins, and you’re guaranteed a full reel of golden orb money symbols per spin. The golden orbs serve double duty as wilds, and they also make it easier to trigger the Amazing Link Respins feature from within the bonus round.
The 200 Spins Amazing Link Zeus Experience
We had some decent base game wins initially, before we triggered the bonus round at 1:27 into the 4-minute highlights video you can check out below. After a couple of free spins, around 1:52 into the video, the stacked golden orb money symbols helped us trigger the Amazing Link Hold & Respins feature. How much we got away with in total can only be seen by hitting the play button.
The first question that came to mind while checking out this game was this: Do we really need yet another name for the same old Streak Respins feature? It’s not like we don’t have more than enough to be confused from before, and Microgaming (Triple Edge) recently trademarked HyperHold for the very same feature. Now, SpinPlay, who’s also a Microgaming partner, comes up with “Amazing Link”. Give us poor reviewers a break, please.
Fancy trademarked names or not, Amazing Link Zeus cannot escape being the run-of-the-mill cliché that it is. A visually mediocre greek mythology theme combined with a few unoriginal features is what you get here. The math model is decent, with an above 5,000x potential, but nothing makes this release stick out from the barrage of similar games we’ve seen lately.
If you appreciate Amazing Link Zeus you should also try:
Diamond King Jackpots - is the best release in SpinPlay’s rather limited catalog so far, at least in our view. You will benefit from Power Range 2x multiplier wilds in the base game, and both range and multiplier values expand in the bonus round. You also have 4 jackpots up to 5,000x, as well as an overall potential of 10,912x your stake.
Assassin Moon - is a very strong Hold & Win release from Triple Edge Studios, and you’ll join the enigmatic hitwoman, Lola, on her deadly mission in Monte Carlo. This is where the Streak Respins feature was first trademarked as HyperHold, and you can land payouts up to 12,500x your stake.
War of Gods - is set up as a battle between the god of the living, Zeus, and the lord of the underworld, Hades. Both gods have their own unique Streak Respins bonus round, and you’ll benefit from expanding reels and symbol upgrades. Both features combine in the powerful Warring Gods showdown, which can lead to payouts up to 2,518x your stake.
