Zeus God of Thunder draws inspiration from Greek mythology and features king of the gods of Mount Olympus. The theme-related symbols include Zeus himself, the eagle, lion, lightning, wreath and vase while other positions are represented as playing card symbols.
Not the most elegant solution, but obviously the developer doesn’t think so. A dramatic soundtrack combined with the sounds of lightning strikes add to the overall atmosphere of the game which offers multiple opportunities to win and even 5 progressive jackpots.
