The wombat says: If, like this adventure-loving Wombat, you like to feel the wind in your fur and see the open road in front of you, then Reel Thunder slot could be right up your highway! This game is one for the Rev Heads amongst you; set on a road similar to the infamous Route 66 where you can be part of a biker gang, hop on your Harley and ride into the sunset.
Yup, Reel Thunder gives you license to indulge your inner road hog and scoop some chunky wins too – by simply spinning those ramped up reels. Will this slot be a high-octane ride, or will it be more like a dead end? Let’s find out…
Look and Feel
This a game with a sense of humour and its loud colours and unashamed Americana give it a good vibe. There is no bright back drop to the reels, but the icons make up for this with their brash appeal. The sound effects are a bit uninspiring, and this slot isn’t the newest kid on the block (Immortal Romance looks positively high tech next to it, but then again it is), but the guitar riffs liven things up a bit!
Reel Thunder Game Play
Reel Thunder has 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 pay-lines. If that seems pretty high variance, then check out the Crazy Chameleons slot which only has 5 pay-lines! Just in case you’d forgotten that you’re a biker dude, the higher value icons in this slot are made up of a Crusin’ sign, a speedometer, a revving back wheel, a silhouette of a biker against a flaming sunset, and a helmet-clad road hog (of the farmyard variety).
These are joined on the reels by your lower value icons which are a mouth-watering assortment of road side refreshers including juicy hot dogs, pancakes smothered in syrup, chillies and tacos, a full fry up and a pitcher of beer.
The Wild in Reel Thunder slot is a winged heart, so watch out for this across reels 2, 3 and 4; it will substitute for every symbol in the game except for Scatter.
And speaking of which, the Scatter is a bike’s headlamp. If you can land up 3x or more of these headlamps then you’re in for a winning combo. Plus, if you get lucky enough to snare that smiling road hog, he will scoop you 10,000x the amount you staked on the bet line. Now that’s the kind of sweet ride this Wombat was looking for…
Free Spins Bonus
When it comes to a bonus, you’ll be sad to hear that Reel Thunder slot doesn’t have one. This is a game about enjoying a straight forward fun-lovin’ base game, with none of the bells and whistle extras that a lot of more recent games offer.
This game is a refreshing reminder of the games of yesteryear. Reel Thunder slot isn’t rammed full of cutting edge graphics, but it’s a humorous and fun release that will keep you entertained.
Over at Wombat Towers, we got into the simple, no frills play, and that hog certainly kept us smiling – in fact we had a gas-guzzling good time! Jump on your hot wheels and take a road trip…
