The Rift video slot is the latest and a long awaited addition to the Thunderkick’s portfolio of visually appealing games. Even though a dark theme is not everybody’s choice, the top-notch graphics and suitable sounds make it a refreshing choice.
Five reels and 17 paylines are enhanced with free spins bonus and a sticky wild feature that are here to increase your potential earnings for the maximum payouts of up to $51,000 for the most fortunate gamers.
What We Love
Situated in a dark alley, the Rift is an extraordinary presentation which offers a brand new experience. If you have had enough of those cheerful and colourful games, the Rift will be a positive change. You will be blown away with that 3D feel around the state of the art graphics all wrapped in a world of mystery and anxiety.
Rewarding features make your experience even greater as the game will have you sitting in anticipation to hit the top 5 Scatters on the reels for the maximum 20 Free spins. Hands down the greatest feature of the Rift game are the sticky Wilds. These symbols contribute to your winning combination enhancing the value of your bet and they also add up to the interesting concept, despite the fact Rift does not feature the multiplier features.
The creators wanted to go past the unusual theme of the game with a wide array of possible bets. Starting from $0.10 to even $100 the Rift is suitable for both casual users and high rollers.
What We Do Not Like
Despite the wide range of different bets, the paytable of the game is not that rewarding, especially in the base game. Landing 5 Wilds on a single payline will award you with just 30x your bet, which is insufficient when it comes to this symbol in a game. Sticky Wilds are an excellent feature, but the thing we do not like about them is that they disappear when you scoop a win.
Multipliers would have been a welcome addition to the game and that is one of the main shortcomings of the Rift video slot. The developers should have also incorporated an explanation on how many Free Spins are available in total. Players could get confused with the game plan which is in fact quite easy, but only until you activate the Bonus feature when a big circle consisting of 9 free spots appears behind the reels.
It is hard to reach the general conclusion with this Thunderkick’s most recent video slot. The game is a unique subject which some will like and others won’t, but the overall consensus is that this video slot is an excellently presented and graphically designed gem of a game.
The game is a perfect choice for the curious gamers that are looking for something more than just a way to pass time on a relaxing afternoon. You will get more than what you’ve bargained for with features that are indeed special, but a bit confusing at times.
