You’ll be delighted to hear that you can explore this mysterious Rift on your Desktop, Mobile and tablet devices. There is no time to waste, when there is a mysterious force and big wins to chase…
Look & Feel
Thunderkick always delivers top quality graphics, The Rift comes with a beautifully designed backdrop that seems to be a looping alley way badly lit with a massive building filling most of the screen. In the middle of the pathway there is a big Rift with a purplish light shining through. On top of The Rift all the icons are floating on what seems to be transparent reels. Your aim is to collect as many wins as possible before these icons disappear.
The high value symbols include a stopwatch, a book of magic, a potion vial and an octopus with white eyes. The low value symbols are made up out of coins with different icons on them, which are quite a refreshing site and most definitely preferred over the regular card value symbols. The wild symbol is a purple and black icon with two interlinked and twisted squares in the shape of a star.
Sound & Score
The graphics are accompanied by an atmospheric, creepy soundtrack that adds to the mystery of the slot. You’ll feel like Sherlock Holmes or well with the theme you’ll most probably feel like you entered an absurd scene from the Dr. Who series. Overall, the soundtrack works perfectly with the designs without overpowering it. You’ll easily be able to play for hours without getting annoyed or wanting to mute the sound.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The wild of this slot is in the shape of two purple squares interlinking and in the shape of a star with the word WILD written in a mixture of white and purple. The Wild can turn sticky and substitutes for all symbols on the reels except the bonus symbol.
The Sticky wild symbols will only appear in the Rift spin feature and in the bonus game. They will remain in place until they form part of a winning pay line.
The Bonus Symbol:
The Bonus Symbol is the game logo with “Free Spins” written in small letters at the top and bottom of the icon. Landing two or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will score you a Rift Spin.
Getting three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the bonus game. Any additional bonus symbols will get you 5 extra free spins during the bonus game. Landing 3 bonus symbols gets you 10 free spins, 4 bonus symbols gets you 15 free spins and 5 bonus symbols gets you 20 initial free spins.
Every bonus symbol that appears on the reels will activate 1 step on the Rift Seal, this will continue until the seal is completely filled. On the third step you will receive 2 extra free spins as well as an added sticky wild to every remaining spin of the bonus game.
If a Rift Spin is triggered all wilds appearing on the reels will become sticky. To top it off, 1-3 extra sticky wilds will land randomly on your reels.
