The wombat says: ‘So I was on my way back from Tesco’s when I chanced upon a rift into another dimension that had opened up just off the high street’, said No One. EVER. Well, fair dinkum, that was until we met that bloke who had just been playing the Rift Slot and struth did he look excited about it.
Purple plasma envelopes a dark dingy alley, and mysterious symbols float free form off the ground. So what is The Rift slot game all about? We think it has a supernatural Buffy vibe going on, but we’re not quite sure…They have taken the whole magic thing a whole step further than the Magicious slot machine, that’s for sure.
Well, according to game’s makers Thunderkick: ‘The Rift draws inspiration from horror fiction in which stories are told of great entities beyond man’s comprehension, threatening to envelop our world in madness and darkness’. So that clears that up, then. Just like our Dracula slot game, it’s feast for the eyes.
What we DO know that we like this new game a lot. The Rift is a 5-reel slot with 3 rows and 17 pay-lines. Your symbols on the screen include: gold coins, a green vial of potion, a weird pink octopus, a stopwatch and an old spell book that glows ominously. The symbols aren’t on fixed reels, but float and drop down similar to the Frog Grog slot giving the background the full screen treatment which makes it perfect to play on your mobile. The highest value symbol on the reels is the Spell Book which will pay out 3.000 coins for 5. Click on the Trophy button to view the paytable in full…
Look and Feel
Thunderkick are a creative bunch and known for their cool themes and excellent HD graphics – and The Rift slot is no exception.
Plus there’s a dark, atmospheric soundtrack to complete the whole sense of sorcery and magic.
Look out for the purple ‘Wild’ symbol that will substitute for all others, and also the Scatter which is The Rift logo and will trigger your bonus round.
Get 2 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, and you’ll get a re-spin. Plus the Rift Wheel will choose how many sticky wilds will turn up on the screen for said re-spin.
The Rift Free Spins
Get 3 or more of The Rift scatter symbols and you’ll go spin crazy. 3 scatters = 10 free spins, 4 scatters = 15 free spins and 5 scatters = 20 free spins.
Plus during this bonus round, Wilds are sticky until they become part of a winning payline, before disappearing and being replaced by more otherworldly icons.
The Rift Wheel Bonus Game
Noticed the magical pentagram on the wall behind the reels? No we didn’t either. But for every Scatter you pick up during the Free Spins round, The Rift to the other dimension will start to close 1 step. Every 3rd step you get gives you an extra 2 Free Spins, an extra Sticky Wild to the rest of the Free Spin.
If beautiful graphics and mystery slots are your thing, then you’ll love The Rift slot. For the others, the Re-spin and Free Spins features pop up frequently enough, granting you the potential for big wins with the Sticky Wilds. Transport yourself to another realm and give it a go…
Wombat Score: 4/5
We would have liked an intro to the game or a bit more info…
It looks great on mobiles and tablets by the way.
