Thunderhorn is a slot game that features an exciting background of a valley in Africa, where wild animals roam, including the rhino. Wild animals are the symbols in this game, including the Rhino, the Cheetah, a Pottery Bowl, a Decorative African Mask, a Drum and the Bonus symbol. The African Tree Wild is another symbol, and the standard playing card symbols are decorated with jewels and a crown. The highest paying symbols are the Rhino and the Bonus symbol. There are no progressive jackpots offered in this game.
This game is a five reel video slot game from Bally Technologies. It is based on the original version found in the land based casinos, and is actually almost exactly the same, even with the same prizes offered and the identical bonus features presented. There is no shortage of payout opportunities. Thunderhorn has been one of the favourites of the land based casinos for a number of years, but the player who has enjoyed the game at the casinos will enjoy the exact same game online.
The Game Offers Hundreds of Ways to Win
There is always some fast action when the rhino appears, although he does not make very many appearances. The most exciting feature of this game is that it is one of only a very few games to offer the player 1,024 ways to win. Various themed symbols will line up across any potential winning combinations, and the player will also get a little help from the wild card icon. This can appear on any of the three central reels. Prizes are certainly big enough to keep the player interested, but the really big wins are to be found only in the free spins round.
Three or more scatter icons will activate the bonus feature, and the minimum number of scatters will reward player with eight free spins. This will increase with the award of five further spins every time two scatters land in view on the reels. The wild cards also take on an important function as they gain a multiplier too. Multiple wilds will even increase the value of each other when they become part of a winning combination. The free spins bonus round is definitely the most lucrative bonus round of Thunderhorn.
Bonus Rounds and Lucrative Free Spins
Three or more bonus symbols will be rewarded with a free spins round, during which all wins are tripled. If the player finds the wild symbol during a free spin, there is the possibility of a bigger multiplier. The free spins round can be reactivated if three or more scatters reappear. The rhino symbol appears on certain reels, and the game features 1,024 ways to win, which means that all matching symbols on adjacent reels can form a winning combination.
There is a potential for really big wins if the player manages a rare massive hit during the free spins round with the multiplier. Additional free games may be awarded during the free games bonus round, and are then added to the remaining free games.
The presentation of Thunderhorn is fairly impressive and the graphics background really does look like a beautiful African plain, just waiting for a safari to appear.
Thunderhorn is a fairly easy game to play because the number of pay lines is fixed. When the player has determined the bet denomination he then just has to sit back and enjoy the spin.
