From the Yggdrasil Game Server (YGS) Masters program comes 2 Gods: Zeus vs. Thor by 4ThePlayer.com. If you have not heard of YGS Masters yet, it is an invite-only platform, where Yggdrasil curates content from budding game studios such as Northern Lights, Rabcat, and the said studio, which was invited early in 2019. The first release under the partnership was 4ThePlayer.com’s debut slot, 9K Yeti that ended up being a hulking hit and an award winner.
Back to the new game, which comes after 6 Wild Sharks, it hands down the best slot from the UK-based Yggdrasil partners. It introduces Dual Spin™, a concept that allows players to choose between two spin buttons for a chance to double their wins on every round. And that is barely the icing on the cake because the slot comes with a whopping 2048 bet lines that put breathtaking wins of up to 15360 times the bet within reach!

On launch, 2 Gods: Zeus versus Thor does not look like a typical Yggdrasil slot. The usual sheen is replaced by a low-key graphic that is quite reminiscent of the other three games in 4ThePlayer.com’s portfolio. As for the setup, players get a 5X4 grid crisscrossed by a whopping 2048 ways to win. That means two things; one little to no chances of landing a winner on an inactive line. And two, mountainous win potential, which the developers cap at €307200.
Moving on to the mathematical side of things, players get stake options ranging from 0.1-20 units of any currency. That is something high rollers might frown upon, but remember, the potential is decent. And so it makes sense to see the developers limit what one can cash out with a low upper bet limit.
The Return to Player is rated 96.5%, with most of it dedicated to the epic and big wins. Bonus triggers and so-so wins get the smallest share. What this means is that your spinning session could be off to a slow start, only for decent wins to come a bit later. That is quite typical of high volatility slots in this potential range. Speaking of volatility, 2 Gods: Zeus vs. Thor is rated 8.5 on the volatility meter.
If you look closely, you will notice that the coloring of the background sort of divides the grid into two territories; one occupied by Zeus (red) and the other by Thor (blue). That is the basis for playing the slot, where players either play with the corresponding red or blue spin button for a chance to double their wins. So, how does a win qualify to be subjected to the X2 multiplier?
Thanks to the Dual Spin™ mechanic, wins can be lined up from both left and right. So, let us say you go for the red button and happen to line up a combination of three to five of a kind from left to right, you then qualify for the X2 booster multiplier. The same case for when you go for the blue spin button, you only qualify for the multiplier when the winner lands right to left.
Zeus and Thor represent the wilds. They substitute for any red and blue regular payer, respectively. The left-right payers include Hera, Cerberus, a ship with a red flag, a galea (helmet) with a red crest, and brown ancient Greek letters. The right-left payers, on the other hand, include the winged Athena, Fenrir, a boat with a flag featuring a blue serpent, a horned helmet, and ancient Greek letters with a blue lining.
Win Spins (Bonus Round)
Three scatters landed on reels one, three, and five activate the win spins. The exact number of win spins awarded will depend on how red and blue scatter-types appear. Ten win spins are, for instance, triggered by three red scatters or two red scatters & one blue scatter when using the red spin button or three blue scatters or two blue scatters & one red scatter when using the blue spin button.
Players get to select the red or blue spin button for each round, just like in the base game. What’s more, each win that corresponds to the spin button used boosts the overall win multiplier. There’s no limit to how far this multiplier can go, keeping in mind that the win spins feature retrigger.
