Reel Thunder is a simple online slot game from Microgaming. It features a hog biker as the main character and you join him as he criss-crosses the highways of America.
There are not any special bonus games or features in this slot; instead it keeps things simple. There are 9 paylines to activate, a wild symbols, a scatter symbol and a jackpot symbol.
The Reel Thunder play area is made of 5 reels and 3 rows. At the bottom of the screen you will find your controls for the game. You can setup your wagering on these controls using the plus and minus symbols to increase the wager values on each payline. Players have their wagers in this slot capped at 90 per spin.
The Biker Bonus Symbol
Reel Thunder doesn’t have any bonus games, but there is a bonus prize symbol like you find in many machines while playing here. Basically it is a standard reel symbol but it offers bigger payouts than the standard symbols.
Two of these bonus icons will already award you a 12x prize. 5 matching icons will award the big Reel Thunder jackpot prize of 10 000x.
Being Free is Being Wild
Reel Thunder features a great looking wild icon. A heart with golden wings is the substitute symbol. This wild can replace any of the reel symbols in a combination.
It doesn’t act as a substitute for the scatter symbol. Other than its function as a wild, this icon doesn’t have any other special functions and it will not offer any prizes for matching more than one wild symbol on a payline.
The Bike Engine Scatter Icon
One of the most rewarding icons in Reel Thunder is the engine scatter symbol. It doesn’t award such big prizes as some of the other symbols, but what makes it stand out is the fact that you only need 3 or more scatters on the reels.
They won’t have to be lined up from left to right. Additionally, the scatter symbol payout isn’t multiplied by your line bet. Instead it is multiplied by your total staked wager. The payouts of this icon that are multiplied by your total wager are 5x, 20x and 50x.
Diners and Dives
Reel Thunder takes you on a journey on the open roads. The reel symbols serve as a record of what you will be seeing on your trip. The icons on screen feature flapjacks, bacon and eggs, hotdogs, spicy Nachos and a beer. These symbols are the basic symbols. 3 of a kind or more will award payouts of up to 600x.
The speedometer, licence plate, burning rubber and silhouetted biker symbols are a bit more special than the food symbols. They only need 2 of a kind on a payline before they award prizes. Additionally they are also worth much more. These symbols award between 700x and 1000x as jackpot prizes.
Wager Limits and the Return to Player
Reel Thunder features a quite respectable 95.95% Return To Player. This figure is definitely helped by the 10 000x jackpot prize offered by the road hog symbol.
Real money wagering is possible with this slot so you can bank allot of money if you are lucky enough to strike it big.
