NextGen Gaming Olympus Thunder Video Slot Review

Olympus Thunder: Demo

Head to the home of the ancient gods in Olympus Thunder a Greek myth and legend themed video slot from NextGen Gaming. Highlights of this 5 reel, 20 payline game are re-spins, complete with a stacked wild on the middle reel and a bonus round that awards between up to 40 free spins where all payouts are boosted by a multiplier up to 3x. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The summit of mighty Mount Olympus forms the backdrop to the reels here – those reels are set within marble columns and include lower value A to 9 values which are done in the style of Greek letters. They’re joined by an ornate vase, a harp and a Greek woman (Aphrodite). The most lucrative of the standard symbols is the god Pan (the man with goat horns). Land 2 5 of those on a line and you’ll win 37.5 times your stake.

More rewarding still is Zeus, who is the game’s wild – boasting a mighty white beard, he awards 500 times your stake if you land 5 in combination. As well as replacing all other symbols bar the bonus, Zeus also triggers 1 of the game’s 2 bonus features.

Land Zeus on the middle reel (reel 3) and you will trigger the Zeus Re-Spins feature – Zeus then expands to fill the reel and you’ll be awarded 3 re-spins with the stacked wild locked in place.

The other symbol of importance is the Bonus symbol – when it lands simultaneously on reels 2, 3 and 4, you will trigger the Olympic Bonus feature. Then you need to pick from the coins shown. Land 3 showing the same value and that’s the number of free spins you’ll be awarded.

On offer are 5, 7, 10 or 15 free spins with all payouts doubled. Get really lucky with your picks and you could end up with 20 free spins with all wins trebled. You can re-trigger more free spins, as well as the Zeus Re-Spins feature from within the Olympic Bonus feature.

There are loads of ancient Greek-themed video slots on the online casino shelves – namely from Playtech. This is one of the better ones. The visuals are simply done but work very well. The features aren’t bad either. Expect to land the re-spins regularly. The free spins and multipliers are harder to come by but can be worth the wait.

Well designed, with a pair of quality bonus features and an RTP rate of over 97% make Olympus Thunder an impressive overall package and certainly worth a look if you enjoy some gods and togas action. I also recommend you try some of NextGen Gaming’s other games with Renegades and Samurai Split good choices.
