Zeus: Thunder Reels Slot Features
Slots featuring mighty Greek gods are usually intense gaming affair with lots of drama, modifiers and feature, especially when it involves the all-powerful Zeus and his thunderbolt. Playson went to great length to create exactly that atmosphere with a wild reel modifier and a free spins round.
While spinning the reels, keep an eye on the thunderbolts on top of the game window. Any thunderbolt bonus symbol landing in a spin will be added to the collector of the respective reel. The number of accumulate symbols needed to trigger the Wild Reel feature is different for each reel – 1 for reel one and five, 2 for reels two and four and 3 for reel 3. Once filled, the triggering reel will turn into an expanded wild which will stay sticky for a number of spins equal to the collection meter. For example, triggering the Wild Reel for the fourth reel as in the screenshot will keep the expanded wild sticky for the next two spins, providing more potential to score a win. Worth noting is that the spins with sticky wild reels are not free. The meters are saved separately for each bet level as well as between sessions.
Hitting Parthenon scatters anywhere on reels one, three and five in one spin will trigger 15 Free Spins which can be retriggered. During the feature, the Thunderbolt meters are reduced to one for all reels, meaning any bonus symbol landing will trigger the expanded wild which will stay sticky for one free spin.
Zeus: Thunder Reels is not the most feature-rich or elaborate slot but it delivers what it says on the tin. Intense gaming sessions with frequent feature triggers and good potential to score mega wins in the free spins. We estimate the maximum to be somewhere around the 1,500 times bet mark, however, we will update the review once we receive the exact details.
