As with previous games from WMS Gaming, Kronos is based on Greek mythology. Kronos was the leader of the Titans and the father of Zeus, who eventually imprisoned him in Tartarus before taking over as leader of the gods.
With five reels and twenty paylines, Kronos is played on simple gold and blue reels on an elegant above-the-clouds background, presumably a design of where the gods would live. The symbols follow the theme and come in the form of a ring, gold throne, Pegasus, Kronos, and Olympus. The lower values are represented by the playing card suits – diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades, all designed to look like shiny gemstones. The bonus symbols are a golden medallion as the scatter and a large lion as the wild, though it only appears on the central three reels.
Excitement looms in this Greek-themed slot, but before players can truly have fun they need to know some of the details that will enhance their play. One coin is both minimum and maximum per line. Coin size ranges from 0.01 up to 3. A decent jackpot of 7.5 times the bet awaits; which means the higher the initial wager, the bigger that jackpot can be. Lastly, an
of 95.94% offers players the chance to win often. As with many of the WMS offerings, Kronos is a highly volatile slot, much like the vengeful Titan leader it is named after. Players should beware; wallets can take a serious battering in this game.
There are plentiful bonus features on Kronos, the first of which is the stacked symbols bonus. This is obvious from the minute the game is begun. Symbols will automatically stack above each other on the reels. The Kronos symbol appears conducive to this, but the other symbols will stack too. These stacked symbols offer players an even greater opportunity of creating those desired winning combos. Players that can create a winning Kronos combination will watch as his image then spreads over the reels.
The other feature is the free spins. These are activated by landing three to five of the gold medallion scatters. Three medallions will receive ten free spins; four offers twenty-five and five medallions gives out a huge one hundred free spins. Those hundred free spins are, of course, what players will be aiming for, but this isn’t as common as one would hope. Most of the time players will have to be satisfied with the lower numbers. Sadly, there isn’t a re-trigger option in this bonus game.
Overall, Kronos is a more basic game than the usual games produced by WMS Gaming. The relaxing soundtrack and stacked symbols, however, do add to the game making it one of the more enjoyable, and at times, highly lucrative. Like Kronos himself though, this game is changeable and players can be down in the red in an instant.
