Thunder Reels

A Simple New Online Slot Developed by Playson

thunder reels

Thunder Reels 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 this game 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 this game, 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 this game. 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 Bonus Features

The only bonus feature (and calling it that is a stretch) to appear in Thunder Reels 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.

Overview

Thunder Reels 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.
