So first came Thunderstruck, which begat Thundering Zeus, which begat Thunder Zeus…That’s not actually how it happened; these games are from three different online casino software developers. And gameplay does vary quite dramatically within the three titles – just wait ‘til you get a load of the wackiness in this particular slot, as described befow. However, it must be said that Microgaming’s big jackpot-paying Thunderstruck set standards in aesthetic and popularity, and much of the industry is still catching up to slots like the all-time classic.
Would it be too smart-ass to simply say “Zeus”? Yeah, probably. Instead, we’ll describe the Thunder Zeus slot game as in the Greek mythology milieu, with Zeus appearing alongside some other members of the Justice League of Ancient Greece: Hades, Poseidon, Aphrodite, Artemis and Dionysus. They’re all hangin out at the Hall of Justice – I mean, Mount Olympus, which is the wild symbol. Despite the presence of the Lord of the Underworld, incidentally, the happy music of the sort you’d hear in the gyros place down the street plays on.
And check out the format of the gameboard in this slot: the traditional 5-reel slot machine format is broken up into halves, with the left side with rows of 3, 4 and 5 symbols, while the right-hand side has 5, 4 and 3. The 9 paylines on either half of the gameboard pay independently, from left-to-right or right-to-left. Landing two scatters (the lightning bolt icon labeled, believe it or not, SCATTER) on either side of the ‘board on a single spin launches the free spins round.
In the free spins round … you guessed it: The two halves of the reels come together to form an 8x3 gameboard. Beyond this, Thunder Zeus is kind enough to guarantee three stacked wilds per spin in the free spins bonus round. Nice. And potentially very lucrative!
The rather eccentric 18 paylines are matched by an equally eccentric wagering scheme, which runs from 3¢ to $15 per payline, or totals from 54¢ to $270 per spin.
Dare we say/write “feel free”? Because you can play for as long as you’d like right here at Vikings.lv. We’d recommend that even seasoned slots players try a few turns of Thunder Zeus in free-play mode, because the split-gameboard concept is quite a humdinger that must be seen (and/or played) to believe. Quite an intriguing play this is.
