Zeus Wild Thunder Review
After the success SYNOT Games last hit slot, Aztec Jaguar Hold and Win, the studio decided to focus on something mythical for the next instalment. Zeus Wild Thunder focuses on ancient Greek myths with a focus on the god of thunder and the sky who rules as king of the gods on Mount Olympus.
This mythical slot plays on 5-reels with 40 paylines and features a whole host of features that are guaranteed to keep you satisfied. From a free spin bonus round that allows you to select your spins and wilds to a progressive bonus feature with the Wrath of Zeus, Zeus Wild Thunder has everything to keep you entertained.
As previously mentioned, this slot is inspired by Greek myths with the whole setting place in Ancient Greek with a variety of buildings stylised from the time with temples in the distance. In the background, you'll see a bright blue sky followed by scenic greenery at the forefront - but thankfully these animate to light up the sky with lightning and to shake up the greenery at the front.
In terms of the symbols on the reels, you'll notice Zeus as a stacked symbol, a beautiful brunette who is assumed to be Hera, a stunning blonde who we assume is Aphrodite along with various trinkets you associate with ancient Greek such as helmets, fruit, pottery and harps.
You'll find ambient noises in the distance such as lightning or wind blowing. There's also a subtle musical score during the base game building up an atmosphere that really intensifies with the Wrath of Zeus and Free Spin modes.
On the surface, the base gameplay seems simplistic like any other slot - but the Wrath of Zeus feature completely changes this. On the 10th spin, you'll find this feature transforming the lightning spots into wilds for even greater wins. It's probably the best feature about the slot as there's so much unpredictability with it but then so much suspense once you hit the 10th spin.
Alongside this, you'll find a free spins feature in which you decide the number of spins and the number of wilds. Additionally, you'll find all relevant menus and buttons at the bottom of the screen with the spin button at the bottom right.
In this slot, you'll find that there's a maximum win of up to 1,000x stake which is quite low for an online slot. In terms of the RTP, it's at a respectable 96.04% but the overall range is between 85 to 98%.
As for the volatility level, you'll find that it's at a low to medium volatility level making a fine compromise between low and high volatility gameplay. Additionally, you'll find the hit rate at 13.94% meaning this is the chance of your hitting a winning combination which we found to be fairly frequent due to the Wrath of Zeus.
Zeus Wild Thunder is a brilliant mythical slot that actually brings something new with mythical slots due to the Wrath of Zeus feature. We found this feature so satisfying and it definitely builds up the suspense.
The addition of free spins makes this slot one that is unmissable. We wouldn't be surprised if this slot became a new fan favourite as it has the making to be a classic slot that is played for years. If you love mythical slots or unique mechanics, then be sure to give Zeus Wild Thunder a spin.
