Despite the name, this pokie game has nothing at all to do with the popular science-fiction series. Developed by GameArt, Thunderbird is a game which features the beautiful blue eagle, as well as a host of other wild and wonderful beasts, from tribal wolves to buffalo. Bet from as little as 0.20 credits, or as much as 10, for each spin of the reels. Bonus rounds include a gamble, multipliers, free spins, scatters and wilds, or why not make your way into the tribal forest to see if you will be lucky enough to land the 1000 credit non-progressive jackpot. Read our full review below.
This game has 20 paylines and five reels, on which players can choose to bet between 0.20 and 10 credits. As with all pokies games, the higher your initial wager, the higher the win.
Thunderbird from GameArt benefits from great design, festuring stunning mountains, a sparkling river and a sky that’s out of this world. The reels sit between pillars, which are adorned with engravings and patterns, highlighting the individual paylines. The reels themselves have been designed to look exactly like an ancient map, enclosed by wood and rope. At the bottom of the screen is the control panel, set for ease of access so players can adjust settings to individual preference.
The symbols to look out for in this game include the ancient bird (highest paid) the tribal man (second highest paid), the buffalo, the horse, the wolf, the owl and the blue-feathered eagle. There are also the usual card symbols, from 9 to Ace, which offer lower prizes but appear fairly frequently.
The wilds in this game are the blue-feathered eagles. These magnificent icons actually serve two functions here. Firstly, they substitute for all other basic symbols, so players can create more winning lines. Secondly, during the free spins round they become sticky wilds. That means they will stay exactly where they fell onto the reels for the duration of the free spins round. This effectively ensures players will land even more winning matches and, of course, that will boost the prize fund.
The ancient bird icon is the scatter symbol and as already mentioned, it will pay out the non-progressive jackpot of 1000 credits, if five of them appear on the reels. The scatter will also trigger the free spins round, if three or more drop onto the reels. As if that wasn't enough, during the free spins round, 5 more free spins will be activated for every two scatters finding their way onto the reels.
Players will also want to look out for the golden totem on reel number 3. When this lands, a multiplier of 5x will be awarded.
The game also features a gamble round, which players can choose to have switched on or off throughout. Simply guess the correct colour suit and potentially double your win. Players have the chance to bet correctly up to five times consecutively.
This game is a great all rounder, available to play on mobile, tablet and desktop.
