Zeus God of Thunder is the fourth in WMS’ series of explosive online slots that are inspired by the Greek god, Zeus. The gameplay is exceptionally atmospheric due to the storm clouds that roll overhead as the sounds of thunder fill the air and lightning forks across the screen. With just five reels and thirty fixed paylines, this slot doesn’t have the unusual pay structure that some of WMS’ Zeus slots do. But, instead, you get three bonus wheels which rotate at the top of the screen, advertising mouth-watering prizes such as extra wilds, coin jackpots, free spins, and level-ups.
With the smallest possible wager of 50p per spin, the biggest jackpot is worth £2,000, and if you’re playing with the maximum bet, you could be taking home as much as £100,000!
Why we love it
Each time that you play the game, you have the chance to win up to five jackpots, which although they aren’t progressives, are linked to the size of your bet so that everyone gets a fair chance to win an impressive sum of cash relative to the amount they’ve wagered.
And, it’s not just the prospect of winning jackpots that makes us want to play this slot time and again. There are also generous helpings of free spins and extra wilds that you can win from the three bonus wheels at the top of the reels.
Plus, there’s something else you can do to stack the odds in your favour if your budget can stretch to it. Extra Bet is an optional feature which costs an extra 50% of your bet. E.g. if the total bet is currently set at 50p, enabling Extra Bet costs another 25p, meaning that you’ll be spending 75p each time that you spin the reels. When Extra Bet is in use, you can win larger amounts of free spins and wilds via the bonus wheels.

The Temple is the wild symbol, and you’ll only see it appear on Reel 2, 3, and 4. As well as having the power to making winning combinations by substituting for all other symbols, the wild multiplies the value of any wins it contributes towards by two.
On any spin that a full stack (i.e. three-rows-high) stack of yellow butterflies appears on a reel, the Re-Spins Feature is initiated. The feature causes the stacked butterflies to fly onto the leftmost reel which does not already contain one or more butterfly symbols (i.e. if Reel 1 is available, they’ll alight there). The stack then stays in place while the reels are re-spun, and any further butterfly symbols that come into view also fly left as far as it’s possible for them to go so that they can join the others. New butterflies appearing also means you get another re-spin, and the feature only ends when no more butterflies land on the reels.
While it doesn’t have a paytable cash value, the image of the rolling clouds (which is referred to as the “Background” in the rules) can sometimes land on the reels. Three Backgrounds give you one spin of the “3 in a Row” Wheel; four Backgrounds give you one spin of the “4 in a Row” Wheel, and five Backgrounds give you one spin of the “5 in a Row” Wheel.
There are several different prize segments that you can land on when you spin one of the wheels, and in the case of the “3 in a Row” and “4 in a Row” wheels, you can also land on an arrow segment, which takes you to the next wheel for another spin. We’ve listed all of the prizes you can get your hands on below:
