Zeus Thunder Fortunes Slots

Rival Gaming is back with another riveting mythology themed game. Experienced slot players are probably quite familiar with Zeus themed games, as the king of the gods has captured the imaginations of many slot players time and time again. Zeus can often be used as a vessel to introduce other gods and goddesses to the mix, usually resulting in an intriguing slot theme.

Let's be clear, Zeus might be king of the gods, but he's not the most moral god around. That being said, he still rules every slot game he participates in with an iron fist. Zeus himself is an elaborately animated figure, and is standing to the left side of the game grid. He looks as you'd imagine him, with rippling muscles and a long grey beard. He welds bolts of lightning, and has a golden belt and cuffs. Beneath the game board there is a god-like atmosphere, laid out in ultimate perfection. It appears as if you're playing in the clouds, near Mountain Olympus, which is known to be the home of Zeus and several of his friends. At the bottom of the reels, there is a control panel that is designed to resemble traditional Greek architecture You can adjust your bet at the bottom of the screen and open a game menu, which will give you an array of options. As you spin the reels, heroic music plays in the background along with sound effects that will truly make you feel as if you're standing in the middle of a mountain!

Basics

To land a winning combination within this game, you need to land a match of three to five symbols from the leftmost side of the reel. This game features a total of 243 ways to win and only the highest win per line is paid out. The game is played on five reels, and features three rows of symbols. There are also four jackpots which rest at the top of the reels. These jackpots are Mini, Minor, Major and Grand. The betting range is substantial, with the lowest wager you can place being $0.30 per spin, and the highest wager being $30.00 per spin. There is a section where you can adjust the sound effects along with turning down or up the music associated with the reel. In general, you can customize minor elements to your taste while playing.

Features and Symbols

The highest paying regular symbol is the storm cloud tornado, which is presumably something that Zeus was cooking up in Mt Olympus. The second highest paying symbol is the harp, followed by the snake and the eagle. There are also a few mythology beasts on the reels, such as the three headed dog that guards hell and the famous winged horse that is spoken about in many different myths. There is also a temple symbol, a chariot and the gates to Mt Olympus. I was shocked that the gods themselves didn't make an appearance in this game, but this slot is really more focused on Zeus himself. That being said, the visuals are outstanding in all ways. This game is also mobile compatible, and available to play in demo mode.

This game has a Hold and Win feature, which is a respin feature. During this respin, special prizes occur because special prize symbols lock in place for multiple spins. Prize symbols also only pay during the Hold & Win bonus. If you wish to trigger the Hold & Win bonus, you'll need to hope for six Prize Symbols scattered across the reel after various spins. Once this feature is activated, the prize symbols will lock in place while the rest of the board respins. This can result in more prizes, and a substantial payout once the feature ends!
