Shifting Seas Slot (Thunderkick)

Shifting Seas Slot (Thunderkick)Shifting Seas appears to borrow from the sea or pirate theme, and the slot was recently released by Thunderkick. This developer offers dozens of excellent games already, and we can expect the same greatness in this new slot.

The quality of Shifting Seas is above the average, but more on that in the review below:

Game Set-Up

Shifting Seas offers up to 6 reels with 4-4-3-3-2-2 symbols design. However, the developer has provided an expanding game area, and you could end up with up to 7 symbols on each reel, giving you 117,649 active ways to win.

The main features on the slot include Avalanches, scatters, wild symbols, a Shift Win mechanic, free spins (come with increasing multipliers), and several modifiers.

Betting and Prizes

The full real money betting range that Thunderkick allows for Shifting Seas is between $0.10 and $100 per stake.

It’s a slot with great payout potential, and with some features like free spins and multipliers coming in, you can hit wins of up to 15,000x the stake. However, you will also need to be prepared to battle very high volatility.

Thunderkick has provided up to four RTP values, with the highest going for 96.15%.

Shifting Seas Slot Features

The screen has 6 reels with 4-4-3-3-2-2 symbols, and this is where you will be working with ways to win. Upon forming combinations, the Shift Win will be triggered, after which it will remove the right reel, and add a new one to the left side.

The new reels increase in size after the Shift Wins. They will eventually give the game area as many as 7 symbols (up to 117,649 ways to win are possible).

With the winning combos, Avalanches will come in to remove the winning symbols, and afterwards drop new ones in the empty areas. By forming additional wins, you get to trigger more Avalanches.

More help will come from the wild symbol, and as usual with this feature, it will serve as a substitute for other regular icons. Also, you can use the wild to create its own combinations paying up to 5x the wager.

Thunderkick has also included three versions of Special Wilds, and if you get them to contribute to a win, they will trigger their modifier. These are:

-The Boost Shift (shifts an extra reel)

-Symbol Rush (transforms up to 8 symbols into a single version)

-Wild Surge (turns up to 3 symbols into wilds).

The final feature on Shifting Seas is the free spins, and we get up to 8 free games. This is activated once a bonus symbol is eliminated on the 6th reel. Wild Reels my per inside, and these will be moved through Shift Wins. Their multiplier will the increase.

Theme & Design

Shifting Seas is a pirate-themed release, and the developer has given it excellent graphics with the action happening within a tropical location.

On the reels are lower-value Royals, and better paying icons which are three pirates, waves, treasure chests, and bonus ships symbols.


Shifting Seas is an excellent slot, especially when you combine its good graphics, and popular pirate theme.

I enjoyed the good features, and high payout and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
