Cash in on Thunderstorms in 5-Reel Slot, Thunderbird
The 5-reel, 50-line slot, Thunderbird, has a distinct Native American feel, with totem poles framing the reels and ornate wood carvings making up the majority of the icons. Carvings of bears and snakes give generous payouts, but it’s the Thunderbird that’s at the top of the pecking order in this game. The legendary bird is here to help you pocket as much cash as possible.
At first spin, you’ll appreciate all the work that went into the game’s design. The purple-blue backdrop is lit up by stars and a full moon. The waves and mountain are artistically portrayed, and every icon on the reel provides players with a visual treat.
The effort put into the game’s aesthetics don’t compromise the gameplay or features. You get the standard wild, multiplier and scatters, but the features improve as you progress through the game. The Thunderbird wild subs in for other symbols and offers 2X the payout when it creates a winning line, and it grows into an expanding multiplier if you make it to Free Spins Mode.
Getting to Free Spins Mode is on par with most Rival games; you need to land three free-spin scatters (which have three circular arrows in the icon’s corner). The free-spin scatter symbol in this game is the red salmon, which offers three tiers of free spin prize-packages. Three fish get you 10 freebies, four of them get you 20 and five get you the Big Kahuna prize package: 50 free spins. While you spin for free, you also benefit from an expanding wild, thanks to the Thunderbird.
The Thunderbird improves further if you trigge replica louis vuitton tasche r the Super Spirit Bonus Round by nailing three Gold Salmon symbols during Free Spins Mode. At this point, the bird is so powerful that a storm is blasting bolts of lightning everywhere, rain is pouring from the sky and thunder replaces the melodic vocal and flute track that accompanies Normal Play. Thunderbird means business, and he sets the first reel spinning, keeping the entire reel wild for the duration of the bonus round.
Thunderbird is well suited to both new and seasoned players and is especially appealing to people who like a bit of culture woven into their games. We certainly learned a lot about spirit animals while testing this Rival gem and look forward to playing it again in the future.
