WMS Kronos Unleashed Video Slot Review

Kronos Unleashed: Demo

Join the leader of the ancient Greek gods known as the Titans in Kronos Unleashed. Created by WMS, it’s played using an unusual 5 reel, 8 row, 60 payline game engine that expands to offer 12 rows and 100 paylines when you trigger the features. You’ll find respins and free spins as well as getting a chance to win 1 of 5 fixed jackpots. It’s not cheap though with stakes ranging from £1 up to £400 per spin.

There’s a strong feel of ancient Greece in the design here. With the bearded figure of Kronos perched above, the big block of reels includes the winged horse Pegasus, a golden throne, a lion and a bracelet. You’ll also see A to J playing cards, red, purple and gold Kronos symbols and a wild. WMS has packed in plenty of extras in Kronos Unleashed.

Free Spins Bonus feature – landing 3 scatters on the same spin unlocks this round which is played on an expanded machine that offers 12 rows and 100 paylines. The number of free spins awarded is determined by the Boxing feature which in turn comes from the number of scatters from the triggering spin.

You can win up to 75 free spins altogether. It’s a bit of a fiddly process but all you really need to know is the more scatters, the more free spins you’ll get. Helping you here are the Bonus Nudges which can shift extra scatters into play on the triggering spin.

Lightning Re-Spin Bonus feature – this round is triggered by landing a full stack of matching Kronos symbols on reel 1. You’ll then receive 3 respins. The symbols in play are different to the base game. Certain symbols are held and other can add even more respins to your total. Boosting your winning chances here are the Power Up symbols which bring extra rows into play, boost the payouts, add extra matching symbols or trigger the jackpot bonus reel.

Jackpot Bonus feature – once triggered, you’ll have an opportunity to win 1 of the Kronos, Mini, Minor, Major or Mega Jackpots. These are fixed jackpots with the Kronos one giving you 50,000 times your total bet!

Kronos Unleashed is quite a complicated game, especially when it comes to the features. When it comes to taking it for a spin, we suggest heading to demo play mode first to get used to the overly complex extras. When you do, you’ll find plenty of action here. With a high minimum play of £1 per spin, it’s probably not a game for micro stakes players though.

We’ve been a bit underwhelmed by some video slots in the WMS catalogue. Kronos Unleashed is one of the developer’s better games. If you like the ancient theme, it’s worth closer investigation. You could always try the original Kronos which is a classic – I would opt for the iconic Zeus which can’t be beaten in my opinion.
