Funnily enough, the most recent addition to the WMS selection here at MobileCasino.net was based on one of their most notable historical figures in Spartacus, and that was clearly not the last that we would be hearing from such icons. Zeus is even more important to the grand scheme of things at WMS than Spartacus, as evidenced by the popularity of the likes of the original Zeus slot, Zeus 3 and Zeus 1,000. Now the god of gods is back once again on Zeus – God of Thunder and we have high hopes for the game.
What to Expect
Zeus slots are usually pretty big, befitting such an iconic individual, and while Zeus – God of Thunder is by no means massive, it is still big enough to pique interest with thirty win lines. Those lines are spread over four rows, so it can mean that the game does not stack the wins up as quickly as on some others, but the base game is still pretty solid all round. A Parthenon wild card helps things along in this regard too and it also comes with the added bonus of doubling all prizes that make use of the symbol. A lack of scatter symbols on the board means that the wild can fill in for anything else too, so you can generally be sure of some kind of good result when it lands on the board.
Instead of scatters, some of the playing card icons on the board have thunderbolts printed on them. If you land three, four or five such symbols on a line, regardless of any winning combinations, you will gain access to the main feature of this game, which is a wheel of fortune round. There are three wheels and they get more lucrative from the first to the third, with the number of triggering symbols dictating where players start. Each wheel gives players the opportunity to move on to the next, or can add a set of random wilds go the board. The first wheel can potentially award the mini and minor progressive jackpots, the second can trigger the minor or major and the third gives players a shot at the major, mega and grand jackpot prizes.
All three wheels can also trigger free spins. On the third wheel, these numbers stand at fifteen, twenty or fifty spins. However, the game also offers players a chance to place an Extra Bet on each spin and if this is in play then the potential spins on the third reel increase to twenty, fifty or a hundred.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
There are not many bigger fans of WMS’s Zeus slot games out there than us and Zeus – God of Thunder goes so far as to improve the series. We still love the other games but this one does things differently in a way that will appeal to fans. The wheel bonuses are a lot more interesting than they may sound on the surface and the chance to win jackpots is always fine by us! If you love the style of this series, or are even brand new to the WMS mobile slots range, this game is definitely worth checking out.
