Thunder Reels

A Simple New Online Slot Developed by Playson

thunder reels

Thunder Reels slot is a Playson developed release, and arguably has one of the more boring titles of any game to debut in 2019. This new online slot has much in common with many of the other simple fruit games to come out of this provider’s library. Like those games, simple fruit and star symbols appear on the reels of this release, and the game comes with a very basic, dare we say elementary gaming engine and pay line structure. 

For starters, there are only 3 reels in this new slot game, and upon those sit a maximum of 5 pay lines, all of which are fixed into place. Players can expect to find bets rising from a floor of 5p per spin, up to a ceiling of £25 a game. A fixed non-progressive jackpot of 750x a bet can be won in the game, and that’s not too shabby for what amounts to a classic slot machine. Because Thunder Reels slot is a modern-day one-armed bandit, players shouldn’t expect special features to pop up in the release.

Thunder Reels Slot Special Features

No special symbols come into play in Thunder Reels slot, but there are still decent-paying icons which can dole out wins. Most of the fruit symbols in the slot can dish out average wins, ranging up to 40x. Bars are more profitable at up to 60x a bet, while star icons can pay up to 200x a stake. The Lucky 77 symbols are considerably more valuable than all the others and can cough up as much as 750x your total bet.

Symbols can appear stacked on the three reels of Thunder Reels slot. This does have its perks. For instance, if players manage to fill all the reels in the game with the same symbols, they will pocket a 2x multiplier on their winnings. This can ramp up the amount you can walk away with by up to 1,500x a bet, if, of course, those symbols happen to be Lucky 77s.

Thunder Reels Slot Free Spins & Bonus Features

The only bonus feature (and calling it that is a stretch) to appear in Thunder Reels slot is a gamble feature. It can be triggered following any spin and permits players to try and guess what the next card in the sequence will be. Doubling or quadrupling your win is possible if you predict the next colour or suit but guess incorrectly, though, and you will lose. It is arguably better to leave this feature alone, especially if you have just won a sizeable sum of money on the reels. Having a crack at it with smaller winnings is a far safer thing to do.

Fun Facts

Thunder Reels slot is set in the midst of a blazing, electrifying thunderstorm. Witnessing thunder and lightning might be nothing out of the ordinary, but how much do you know about these intense weather disturbances?

Many of us enjoy watching thunderstorms and lightning but don't know much about the topic. For instance, did you know that lighting can be created in a lab? Creating lightning in a lab is what made Dr. Nikola Tesla famous. If it was not for the Tesla car company, this genius scientist would have been more or less forgotten.

Here is another quirky fact about lightning. Lightning can travel from the ground up as well as from the sky down. As a matter of fact, most people who are injured by lightning, are injured when the lightning travels from the ground upwards.

Can lightning strike in the same place twice? There is a lot of debate about this, but it is true. Lightning can strike in the same place twice. It may have something to do with what is underneath the ground in that particular spot.

Lightning may be behind the theory of UFOs seen by pilots. When lightning is seen in a cloud as you fly above it, it can look saucer-shaped.

Just a few fun facts about lightning!

Why We Love Thunder Reels Slot Game

Thunder Reels slot doesn’t have much under the bonnet to impress players. Lovers of classic UK slots game and fruit machines will find some things to like about the game. However, players are really looking at the 3-reel slot being something of a niched entry for Playson. There are, admittedly, better fruit machines and more prosperous new slots which you can find at Goldrushslots.co.uk.
