Zeus God of Thunder is another slot from WMS featuring the all-powerful Greek mythological god of thunder. It is the third slot in the series that features the supreme god of Olympus and follows the titles Zeus and Zeus 1000. This latest instalment has 5 reels and 30 paylines and boasts up to 100 Free Spins as well as 5 progressive jackpots!
Visually the game is bright, even though the lightning-holding Zeus appears to be standing before a cloudy sky at sunset. The symbols on the reels include laurel wreaths, a Grecian urn, a lion, playing card symbols, thunderbolts, and the god of thunder himself. Plus, the Zeus symbol can land fully stacked and fill up the entire reels.
What makes this game exceptionally exciting is that special backgrounds can randomly appear behind the symbols in the base game. If 3 or more of these backgrounds should line up consecutively on the same row, the Wheel Feature will activate and you will get 1 spin of the bonus wheel. There are a total of 3 bonus wheels that you can trigger: 3 in a row wheel, 4 in a row wheel, and 5 in a row wheel. The one that you get to spin will depend on the number of consecutive backgrounds that appear (3 across, 4 across or 5 across).
Each of the wheels contain multiple slices that can award a free spins bonus, random wilds, a spin on the next wheel in line, or a progressive jackpot. As far as the Jackpots go, the 3 in a row wheel contains only the Mini and Minor jackpots. The 4 in a row wheel contains only the Minor and Major. The 5 in a row wheel has the Major, Mega and Grand.
If you spin and get the Wild Spin Bonus, this will award you with 1 spin that has a random number of wilds added to the reels. The number of wilds you will receive will depend on the wheel from which they came. The most you can get is up to 7 random wilds from the 5 in a row wheel.
On the other hand, if you should spin the wheel and get the Free Spins Bonus feature, an alternative set of reels will come into play. Just like the Wild Spin Bonus, the number of free spins you get is determined by the wheel from which they came. That said, regardless of the wheel, free spins can be retriggered during the feature. If you should activate this feature with the 5 in a row wheel, you can get 50 free spins, which means if this is retriggered you could possibly score 100 free spins in total.
