Thunderbird slot Game Review

By: Russell Potvin

The power of a mystical world is the feeling you first get with Rival Gaming's Thunderbird. The setting takes you deep into the wilderness of America, with this, made evident by the Native American references in its symbols and background. This is a 5 reel slot that features 50 paylines to ensure plenty of winning action, thanks to the multiplier, expanding wild symbols, free spins and Super Spirit round that accompanies the free spins.

Serving up many artifacts that Native Americans consider spiritual, and providing a jackpot of 2000 coins, Thunderbird will have you feeling the power behind the spirits that make this unique and extraordinary people so endearing. As you delve deeper into things, the music will leave a calming effect as you hear the sounds of nature behind the soothing voice of a Native American musician playing a wooden flute. Of course, additional sounds are present such as the rattle of a snake, or when one of the features is triggered.

The symbols you see are all related to the culture that is held dear to the tribes that have created, cared for and cherished as part of their history. These include a ceremonial animal skin drum, tribal masks, a handmade hat, feathers, pine cones and a snake. While each has its own rewards, it is the red fish, yellow fish and wooden hawk carving that carry you to the bonus features and deliver the most rewards.


The gameplay is wonderful on many levels. The reels spin and display creative images that really do give you a sense of life from a time in American history. The quality that this game presents is another aspect, and this is evident by the lack of lines that usually identify the reels. It allows you an improved experience as you view the images and trigger the game features. When you add in the sounds, you are left with a feeling of understanding of such a unique culture that many fails to grasp.

The first of the three mentioned is the red fish as it is what will begin the free spins. As with many of Rivals creations, the more of these you manage to line up on the reels, the more free spins you earn. The least amount is 10 and the highest is 50, and will include the ability to achieve expanding wilds on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4. Should the yellow fish be found in three or more positions, it will see you earn 5-15 super spirit rounds. When these begin the first reel will become an expanding wild for the duration of those free spins.

The next to come is the wild symbol, as one would expect, it will help you to achieve extra wins as it will substitute for all but the red and yellow fish to reward you wins. A nice touch to this wild is it will multiply wins by two and has the ability to appear on all reels.
