Zeus God of Thunder is powered by WMS Gaming and comes with 5 reels, 4 rows and 30 paylines. Playable from 50p a spin across all devices (including laptops, PCs, iOS and Android), this game offers you up to 100 free spins and 5 progressive jackpots. Theme wise, it’s based on Zeus who was a Greek God.
Zeus God of Thunder follows on from the other great Zeus themed slots that WMS has produced – it looks superb as Zeus appears in the background with a dark and cloud night which adds to the excitement and grandness. Symbols on the reels include playing cards, reefs, goblets, thunder bolts and Zeus himself.
You will notice 3 wheels above the main reel set – you can benefit from what these wheels award if you select the Extra Bet option – if not selected, you will get access to 1 wheel with 2 additional wagers enabling the 3 wheels. Now, look out for a special background randomly appearing behind the symbols on the reels.
If it lines up behind 3 or more symbols in the same row (consecutively), the Wheel feature is triggered and a wheel spin is awarded. The more in a row you get, the bigger the prizes on offer on the corresponding wheel. Each wheel can give you access to the Free Spin Bonus feature, a spin of the next wheel (Upgrade) or a jackpot.
From the 3 in a row wheel, you can only win the Mini and Minor Jackpots whilst the Minor and Major jackpots are available from the 4 in a row wheel. The Major, Mega and Grand jackpots can only be won from the 5 in a row wheel. This is known as the Jackpot feature.
You can also trigger the Wild Spin Bonus feature where you will get 1 spin with a random number of wilds added to the reels – the number of wilds you receive depends on which wheel triggered the feature. From the 3 in a row wheel, you can get up to 5 random wilds whilst it goes up to 6 for the 4 in a row wheel. From the 5 in a row wheel, you can get up to 7 random wilds.
You also have the Free Spins Bonus feature where an alternative set of reels comes into play – like the feature above, the number of free spins you get is determined by the wheel that triggered the feature. The 3 in a row wheel gives you up to 7 free spins with the 4 in a row wheel giving you up to 12 free spins. The 5 in a row wheel is the most lucrative with a cool 50 free spins on offer. The good news is that you can win more free spins once spinning with a possible 100 free spins in total on offer.
With excellent graphics and huge rewards due the extra wilds, up to 100 free spins and 5 progressive jackpots, Zeus God of Thunder is another excellent addition to WMS’ Zeus collection. Variance wise, it’s medium to high with big wins possible in the base game and various bonus features. Overall, a superb slot from WMS. I would also recommend you tried the classic Zeus where it all started.
