Riders of the Storm game review
Riders of the Storm is a breathtaking video slot that was released by Thunderkick. Given the great effort that Thunderkick applies in most of their games, I was sure I would love a thing or two in this lot and here is my review.
Riders of the storm like its name suggests will take you deep inside a heavy storm. This steampunk-inspired game has a rumbling thunder that is accompanied by a dramatic soundtrack.
The slot plays out on 5 reels that have 3 rows and a total of 243 pay-lines. With Riders of the Storm, Thunderkick allows bets of up to £100 per spin and you can play the slot across all devices. The base game has 2x wild multipliers in addition to the 4 fully stacked wild reels that land randomly.
Riders of the Storm has a free spin feature from where you can choose 1 of the 3 available characters. The slot also features a Mystery Options which you can use to randomize all activities. Payments here are good and there is potential to earn a whopping 26,246x your stake (this only happens with the most volatile)
What symbols are there?
Riders of the Storm is all about the weather and so it is obvious to come across a lot of images related to clouds. Thunderkick uses 3 steampunk characters for this slot and these are high-value symbols as well as the wild. Other characters are a Wild symbol, Captain, Huntress, Engineer, Ship Wheel, Anchor, Hook, and low-value Card Suit symbols.
What are the bonus features?
The wild symbol in Riders of the Storm is a crystal ball which has a number of duties in the game. This symbol also gives you a very exciting payout that is 15xs if you manage to land 5 on a pay-line. It is also the symbol that you can use to substitute other symbols.
The other one is the Mystery Wild Reel feature that s located within the base of the game. This symbol can be triggered randomly on any given spin. This symbol is also good in boosting your wins as it can give you a maximum of 4 reels that come fully stacked with wild symbols.
Riders of the Storm is the latest release from Thunderkick, who have not been able to release a new free slot in the past few months. I loved the epic soundtrack that accompanies this slot and the steampunk-inspired theme of Rider of the Strom are properly laid out and well balanced.
In my experience, I found it very tough to trigger the free spins feature and so I would advise you choose your playing tactics wisely. I liked the slot’s high volatility option because the potential to earn 26,246xs was too tempting. Overall it’s a slot with good potential.
