Las Vegas-based slot developer Bally Technologies have been busy on the online scene of late, with the latest raft of slots looking more like mobile games than online ones. The Spin/Autoplay/Bet Size buttons are all conveniently positioned at the foot of the screen and feel more like touchscreen buttons (in fact, I played this safari-themed slot from Bally, Thunderhorn, on a Sony Vaio with a big touchscreen monitor). There’s even a handy win count to see what you bagged in the previous spin. That leaves more room for a lovely savannah sunset backdrop on-screen plus big African-themed symbols on the reels.
The ‘Thunderhorn’ of the title is a hefty rhinoceros who forms the game’s top payer. Thunderhorn pays out 300 coins, but it’s worth remembering the game pays 1,024 ways, so be prepared for some regular wins and a reasonably hefty outlay. Betting is fixed at 1,024 ways and every spin costs 40 credits. Elsewhere on the reels, there is a tribal mask, a cheetah, a drum, and a grain basket, plus some generic Bally-styled 9-through-Ace icons. The Flame Tree icon is Wild and substitutes for all regular symbols in the game other than the Scatters. It only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4, though.
Three or more BONUS Scatters anywhere on the reels triggers a free spins bonus round, with 8, 15 or 20 spins up for grabs depending on how many Scatters you activated the feature with. During the bonus round, every Wild that appears on the middle three reels will apply a multiplier of 2x or 3x to your win for that spin.
What’s good about this little free spins round is that you can retrigger more free spins, but just two Scatters on the reels will award you five additional spins; there’s no need to land three or more Scatters.
Bally have come up with a neat little safari-themed slot with Thunderhorn. It may not quite top efforts like Betsoft Gaming’s Safari Sam or the outdoors-themed slot from Cryptologic, Savannah Sunrise, but there’s enough here with its betting action to recommend you check it out.
