Thunderfist Game Information
Let’s head east, and channel that inner samurai warrior, because it’s time to play Thunderfist. This slot is brought to you by Net Entertainment and has some great gameplay, sounds, and good bonus features.
It’s a five reel slot with 243 permanently enabled ways, meaning you always get all these ways to win, irrespective of what you bet. The minimum bet is 0.25 and the maximum is 125 each spin, with coin values from 0.01 to 0.50.
Thunderfist Gameplay and Symbols
Situated in a bamboo forest, the slot design is excellent and the 3D icons really stand out on the neutral green and white background. The main icons are five samurai warriors, all different in fighting style and appearance. The warriors are action based portraits that pulse outwards and perform a unique action move when you hit them. The rest of the symbols are bamboo entwined numbers (A, K, Q, J and 10).
You’ll also find a stacked wild icon which is an impressive reel sized portrait of an old menacing wizard. He is quite scary and it seems the other samurai are on a quest to defeat him and his sorcerous ways. If he shows up on the entire reel and shoots lightning from his hands, you’ll get wilds in many directions. Even if just part of him shows up he’ll also act as a wild on those lines. This means he acts as a wild icon on one to three rows.
The sounds in Thunderfist are pretty good and the ambient sound track is quite peaceful. It puts you in an old village with the sounds of a bamboo creaking, birds chirping, and wind blowing. The slot sounds are more action packed and really set the tempo for a slot that has some awesome animations and features.
The winning jingle is especially cool and it lasts longer the more you win.
Thunderfist Bonus Features
Dragon Gong Scatter Free Spins Bonus: The scatter symbol is a golden dragon gong which makes a crashing and reverberating noise when you hit it. Once you get two scatters the remaining reels speed up in anticipation of hitting those free spins.
The scatter icons in Thunderfist do not award any wins when you hit them, but the awarded free spins are generous, with 3 scatters getting you 10 spins, 4 scatters awarding you 15 spins, and 5 scatters gives you 20 free spins. When you hit the free spins you’ll be transported on a journey to a new palace where you’ll start your bonus round.
All free spin wins are multiplied by two, three, four, or five times, depending on the multiplier you’re awarded after a win. The multipliers will be presented on the screen and lightning will smash down on all of them except one, and that’s your multiplier for that particular win.
Also, you can retrigger free spins during the round by hitting three or more scatter symbols and you’ll be awarded the same amount of extra free spins as you get during regular play.
You’ll certainly be entertained playing this slot. The wins can be huge due to the stacked wilds and the multipliers that you’ll be awarded on a win during a free spin round.
The sounds and graphics are excellent, as I’ve come to expect from Net Entertainment. The permanent 243 ways to win, instead of lines, is a good feature also.
You really get a taste of eastern culture when you play this slot, with some really cool music when you hit a win. If you are in to ninjas, wizards, and samurai you’re sure to be entertained while playing Thunderfist.
