WMS Zeus God of Thunder Video Slot Review

Zeus God of Thunder: Demo

The king of the deities in Greek legend is the star of Zeus God of Thunder, a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot from WMS Gaming. Mysterious backgrounds can activate the 3 bonus wheels which award an assortment of re-spin with added wilds, free spins and 1 of 5 potential jackpot prizes. Head to the land of the ancients, on all devices, from just 50p per spin.

The reels are set against a swirling, cloud-filled sky, with the bearded figure of Zeus watching over proceedings. Joining the lower value playing cards are pieces of ancient pottery, laurel wreaths, thunderbolts, lions and of course the God of Thunder himself. Zeus can land fully stacked and fill up whole reels.

Watch out for the special backgrounds which can appear behind the symbols – when 3 or more of these line up consecutively on the same row, you’ll trigger the Wheel feature and be awarded a spin of the bonus wheel. There are 3 wheels in all – which one you get to spin depends on how many backgrounds triggered the feature.

On the 3 in a row wheel, you’ll win 1 of the following:

  • Free Spin Bonus feature: 5 or 7 free spins
  • Wild Spin Bonus feature: 1 free spin with 4 or 5 random wilds
  • An upgrade to the next wheel
  • The Mini or Minor Jackpot

On the 4 in a row wheel, you can win:

  • Free Spin Bonus feature: 6, 10 or 12 free spins
  • Wild Spin Bonus feature 1 free spin with 5 or 6 random wilds
  • An upgrade to the next wheel
  • The Minor or Major Jackpot

On the 5 in a row wheel, the prizes get a lot better:

  • Free Spin Bonus feature: 15, 20 or 50 free spins
  • Wild Spin Bonus feature: 1 free spin with 6 or 7 extra random wilds
  • The Major, Grand or Mega Jackpots

In the Free Spin Bonus feature, whatever wheel you trigger it from, you can retrigger during the feature to give you a potential 100 free spins if accessed from the 5 in a row wheel.

Like many WMS video slots, the design here is impressive. The way the main attraction is triggered is a little unusual but offers plenty of variety when you do land it. The re-spin with added wilds and the standard free spins offer some decent winning chances. Throw in the 5 potential jackpot rounds and Zeus God of Thunder can deliver some Olympian entertainment if your luck is in. I also suggest you take a look at its predecessors with Zeus and Zeus 1000 both online and land based favourites.
