A target theme for a lot of slot machines, Zeus and his thunderbolts are going to be easy to find in Olympus Thunder as well. In this case, we’re looking at one of the NextGen Gaming titles, though one with a pretty easy to follow theme. Mount Olympus was the place where the gods lived, and several of those powerful beings are among the slot’s symbols, in important positions.
Despite the relatively common theme, Olympus Thunder is a game to pay attention to, particularly since it has a 97% RTP, quite a bit better than its competition. The 20 fixed win lines show up on 5 reels. Features include the Zeus Re-Spins, expanded wilds, regular wilds, scatters and free spins which have up to 3x multipliers.
Betting and Prizes
Setting up a bet in a slot with lines is pretty easy in most cases, and Olympus Thunder is no different. You get the option to set up a wager for the line, but their total number will be kept at 20. The line bet varies though, from $0.01 to $5. As a result, you can spend $0.20 to $100 for each spin that you decide to go through.
There are already good payouts to be had in this game, up to 10,000 coins being awarded in the best combo, but then they’ve also added multipliers for the free spins, and through them you could be looking at 30,000 coins. That’s a top prize of $150,000, in the best-case scenario. The RTP is high for a slot machine, 97% being the announced figure for it.
Olympus Thunder Slot Features
Zeus is the one that you want to see most often, since as a wild feature it’s the one that helps you form a lot more combinations. Ideally, you want it covering the entire active line, since its own payouts are beyond anything you can get from regular symbols. There is a 10,000x jackpot associated with this Zeus wild.
Another way to get this symbol is as a trigger for re-spins. The Zeus Re-Spins get triggered whenever you have the wild symbol on the 3rd reel. In that position, it’s going to trigger 3 re-spins which have expanded wilds on that one column.
Moving on to the bonus symbol, you see on it the image of thunderbolts and a logo. As a symbol that only appears on the middle reels, you’re going to need all three visible in order to gain access to the Olympus Bonus. Apparently, the bonus feature that comes next requires that you match three prizes of the same type, and based on what you get there will be prizes that vary from 5 spins with 2x multipliers, to 20 free spins with 3x multipliers. You can also get Zeus Re-Spins from this bonus game.
Theme & Design
As I’ve mentioned already, I doubt that you’re going to find the slot terribly interesting, at least if you’ve been playing games for a while and you know the Ancient Greece theme already. The gods of Olympus are present among symbols, starting with Zeus and his thunderbolts, continuing with Panon, Aphrodite, harps, pottery and the usual Greek letter style cards. There are decent graphics to be had in Olympus Thunder, but that’s what you get from most average looking slot machines these days.
Olympus Thunder can deliver awesome features and a very high RTP, but it’s not going to be as good in every other area, the theme and the graphics being average.
