Turning Totems is a five-reel and 11-payline video slot developed by Thunderkick Games. The slot is inspired by Mayan culture and the totems that they carved in wood. The reels are formed as totems and they are set in the desert with some Native Americans standing beside the reels. In addition, the game features catchy sounds to match the theme.

Totem poles are carved wooden structures that are often associated with North American indigenous people. In this good-looking online slot from Thunderkick entitled Turning Totems, they form the reels and the winning combinations.
Turning Totems is a five-reel slot that features three rows and 1 fixed paylines. Each reel is a Totem pole split into three sections that spin independently, each uncovering their symbol. There’s a desert backdrop to those reels and a Native American character on the left-hand side.
But before you start calling upon the rain, you should learn how to set your bets.
When you click on “Number Coin,” you will increase or decrease the bets. When you click on it, a separate panel will open and you will be able to set the coins size. “Autoplay” will allow you to set everything concerning spinning the reels automatically without any pauses whatsoever. “Spin” will set the reels spinning once you pick your bet.
This slot has a very pleasant look to it, the five totem poles having a very flamboyant vibe, with a combination of both friendly and fierce-looking engravings on the poles. The top of each pole sees a monkey-like character sitting serenely as birds fly overhead.
Each spin sees the poles rotate to reveal another set of symbols, the animation met by the sound of the wind, which causes the poles to turn, all while crickets chirping in the background. When you land a win, the sound builds up as the promise of bigger and better wins await.
This particular game developer has gained a reputation for producing slots with some very novel and eccentric features. With Turning Totems, it appears that they have done it again!
This game is unique in so many ways, making it very different from the usual traditional slot. The game is even made better due to its imaginative and lively graphics and animations – especially leading up to and after the feature round. Players will find that this slot is one of the best in recent memory and is certainly one that they will keep on playing over and over again.
There are just five base game symbols and these various totem masks are differentiated by the color – yellow, red, pink, green and blue. Paylines can be formed from right to left as well as left to right. The wild symbol is a “sleeping” totem but when active, it will substitute for all others to form a winning combo.
The Thunder Snake symbol can appear anywhere and when it does, it will transform that reel into a Thunder Reel – this is marked by the creature above that reel turning gold and raising up slightly. Any sleeping wilds on this reel will now wake up and act like a normal wild and you will receive one free re-spin.
This is initiated if at least three Thunder Reels are active at the same time. You will now receive five free spins with those Thunder Reels remaining active throughout the round.
