Zeus God of Thunder
WMS Gaming have so many slots in their Zeus, Greek mythology franchise that you could easily be forgiven for choosing to not take an interest in their latest offering; that is until you see what you could win with its features. Admittedly over complex, graphically dull, and considerably costly to play it may be, but Zeus: God of Thunder does at least pay dividends to some players, given that it has a couple of “jackpot” prizes on offer. They aren’t progressive, but you could easily mistake them for progressive prizes. How costly are we talking? This 5-reel, 30-line slot machine game actually costs you 50p per spin at it cheapest, whilst maximum stakes can actually set you back around £75 per spin.
The Temple of Zeus acts as a wild symbol in this slot machine, and as a wild, it can replace all other symbols and icons in the game, save for bonus symbols. Unfortunately, it only appears on the second, third and fourth reels. When it does appear in a winning combo, it can double the value of that combination.
Landing 3 adjacent reel positions show backgrounds (instead of symbols) the Wheels of Fortune bonus begins in this slot. Players will get to enjoy a spin to try and win a top jackpot based on how many adjacent reel backgrounds they land.
Bagging 3 in a row will see players able to enjoy 1 spin on the first wheel, which can see players win 4-5 wilds, 5-7 free spins, the Mini or Minor jackpots, or advance to the next wheel. Landing 4 background in a row will see players bag 1 spin on the second wheel, which can deliver 5-6 wilds, 10-12 free spins or Minor or Major jackpots, or the chance to move to the final wheel. That wheel is triggered by landing 5 adjacent reel positions. It can offer 6-12 wilds, 15-50 free spins, or the Mega, Major or Grand jackpots.
The bonus features in Zeus: God of Thunder are certainly not easy to grasp, and the slot seems unnecessarily complicated. Again, though, if you win one of the jackpot prizes, all of that can be forgotten.
