Anyone who admits to remembering the original Thundercats cartoon in the mid-late 1980s is probably happy to show their age but it did return briefly for a short spell in 2011 and a video game in 2012; the Thundercats were catlike superheroes with various powers and this Blueprint Gaming slot is a tribute to them.
Thundercats is a five reel slot with four rows and thirty fixed paylines but as you can see from the screenshot above there’s a huge space above those reels occupied by a character and this area has a purpose in one of the features which we shall explain presently.
The high value symbols are the Thundercats logo, the sword, the weapons which look like back scratchers, the vehicle and the surfboards; J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
Tygra is the wild symbol and he will substitute for all others to form winning combos except for the Thunder Reel bonus icon.
Thunder Bonus Free Spins
This is triggered by landing three, four or five of the Thunder Reel bonus symbols anywhere in view and you will get to spin the Thunder Wheel to determine which free spins option is awarded. Four bonus symbols will eliminate the Jackalman spins from the wheel and five will immediately award the Ultimate Thunder Spins.
- Ultimate Thunder Spins – awards 5 free spins on eight rows (hence the space above the reels) with stacked wilds on reels one, three and five.
- Mumm-Ra Free Spins – awards 10 free spins and any wilds which land are collected in the Mumm-Ra ‘bank’; a final Ever Living Spin on eight rows is awarded and the wilds are placed back on the reels.
- Slithe Free Spins – awards 10 free spins with any wilds landing remaining in place until the round ends; a whole reel full of wilds will award 5 additional spins.
- Monkian Free Spins – awards 10 free spins with Monkian zones falling in from above and transforming those positions into wilds; a Thundercats symbol on reel five will award 5 extra spins once.
- Jackalman Free Spins – awards 10 free spins with any wilds in view multiplying any wins up to 1ox; a Thundercats symbol on reels five will award 5 extra spins once.
When the bonus is initiated it’s possible to gamble a Thunder Wheel award for a better one.
Landing the special symbol on reel five will spin a wheel and pick a character for a mini-feature as follows:
- Lion-O – his Sword of Omens will on reel three will expand and trigger random wilds.
- Tygra – wilds in view will transform and expand into matching symbols which fill that reel.
- Cheetara – the special wild in reel one will trigger a flurry of expanding wilds.
- Panthro – adjacent reels may join together and land with matching stacked symbols.
- Wily Cat – two stacked wilds may appear on the reels with any wins multiplied by 2x.
Snarf can appear during any of the above phases to enhance the win/modifier and to place more bonus symbols on the reels.
This can occur randomly on any spin and the reel height will increase from four rows to eight rows.
It will take a lot of searching to find a slot with more bonus features than Thundercats but once you get your head round the various features it’s all very enjoyable with some great cartoon graphics and a worthy tribute to the original series; this game comes with an RTP of 95.50%.
