The Rift Online Slot Review
Progressive Jackpot: No
Take a walk on the dark side and explore the cobbled dark alleyways and streets of London in search of the mystical and magical items that are linked with the tentacled Cthulhu, one of H.P, Lovecraft’s mystical creatures. This game drags you into the darkness where such scary creatures, magical books, glowing watches, and weird coins await. Check out the wall where a pentagram is mysteriously etched with empty circles for meant for orbs and the beginnings of a scary purple rift in front of it where the symbols and the reels emanate from.
The game’s design is as eerie as it gets, with the dark cobblestone streets in the background, dim lamps in the distance, and shadows everywhere. The slight rustle of leaves in the shadows and a purple glow from the rift in the street in front of you completes this mystical and mysterious design of the game. The music also adds to the scary yet interesting theme of the game, combining rock and dark music plus spinning sounds to complete the feel of the game.
The controls of the game are pretty standard for a Thunderkick online slot, the game controls located on the lower right corner of the screen and the information buttons plus sound controls on the lower left of the screen. Increase or decrease your bet by clicking the token icon and launch the reels by clicking on auto play to choose the number of hands-free spins you want to run. Click on spin to launch your auto-play round or simply launch individual spins manually by clicking spin every time.
The game’s symbols are the mystical and mythical symbols that the game’s theme revolves around. Aside from a purple Cthulhu, there is also a magical book bound in chains, a glowing golden pocket watch, a green bottle, and four different coins. The wild symbol is the word Wild in purple and the game’s scatter symbol is the game’s logo. There is also as sticky Wild symbol, which is a mere variation of the regular wild symbol since it is a glowing purple wild with chains across it.
This game’s bonus round is triggered by the appearance of the scatter symbol at least three times on the reels. The more scatter symbols, the more free spins you will be awarded.
3 scatter symbols = 10 free spins
4 scatter symbols = 15 free spins
5 scatter symbols = 20 free spins
Also awarded with your free spins are 2 free sticky wild symbols. When this bonus round is launched, the rift in front of you expands, opening up the portal on the wall, which is used to give you more sticky wilds and bigger wins.
Each additional Rift symbol on the reel will make one of the circles in the pentagram-like symbol in the back glow. More Rift symbols will add to the glowing circles in the back, awarding you with more sticky wilds and more free spins as the game continues. The round ends when there are no more free spins for you to use.
