With the Thundercats slot from Blueprint Gaming, we're going back to the 1980s when the kids of the day were glued to their TV screens every Saturday morning watching the fantasy cartoon series, Thundercats.
With help from Lion-O, Snarf, Panthro, Cheetara, and Tygra, you could be picking up wins left, right, and centre through a feast of Free Spin features, character modifiers, Thunder Reels, and the mighty Thunder Bonus, all for as little as 40p per spin. If you love feature-rich slots, then this exciting new release should be right up your street!
More about the Software Provider
Blueprint Gaming is an online slot game developer whose headquarters are in the UK but is operated by a German entertainment company called the Gauselmann Group. Blueprint Gaming slots are not only fully compatible with mobile devices, but also packed with special features. The brand has already taken another popular cartoon series – Top Cat - and turned it into a fantastic progressive jackpot slot, but there are many other more serious titles to enjoy from this developer, including Fortunes of Sparta, Super Spinner Bar-X, and Jewel Strike.
Appearance and Sound Effects
The appearance of Thundercats alters each time you trigger a character modifier (and we'll be explaining more about these exciting modifiers very shortly). However, when you first launch the game, one of the main characters is selected and they appear above the reels with an explanation of their special feature beneath them. Because the standard reel set is five by four, the game plays in portrait mode to fit all of the graphics in.
The paytable symbols include weapons, the game logo, playing card symbols, Wily Cat, Panthro, Tygra, Cheetara, and Lion-O.
The soundtrack takes fans of the TV series straight down memory lane as it's the original music from the cartoon.
Bonuses and Special Features
Thundercats has an abundance of bonus features that will make you want to play the game over and over as no playing experience is ever the same.
First up is a feature called Thunder Reels which can occur at any point in the game, and it causes the reels to expand upwards so that the reel set becomes eight rows high.
Snarf was one of the cute members of the Thundercats team, and in this game, he can appear after any losing spin to instantly create a win.
Each time the Thundercats game is launched, one of the main characters is selected at random. You can either choose to play with that character's modifier or spin again to select another. The character modifiers are:
Cheetara – Cheetara's special wild symbol activates a winning streak, and any extra wilds that come into view cause the reels to expand;
Wily Cat – adds two sets of stacked wilds to the reels which award a 2x multiplier to any wins;
Tygra – add expanding wilds;
Lion-O – add random wilds;
Panthro – can link reels together to give bigger winning combinations.
Three bonus symbols anywhere on the reels starts the Thunder Free Spins Bonus where you get to spin a bonus wheel to select one of five free spin features:
Slithe Free Spins – ten free spins with sticky wilds throughout;
Monkian Free Spins – ten free games with extra wild symbols;
Jackalman Free Spins – ten free games with increasing wild multipliers of up to 10x. You can also win up to five more free spins by landing the Thundercats symbol on Reel 5.
Ultimate Thunder Spins – five free spins with fully wild reels on the first, third, and fifth reel;
Mumm-ra Free Spins – ten free games and a wild symbol counter that collects all wilds for the end of the feature. After your tenth spin, you get an Ever Living Spin with all of the collected wilds placed back on the reels.
Thundercats uses five reels, four rows of symbols, and thirty paylines, and has an excellent RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.50%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
If you have fond memories of the Thundercats cartoon series, or are a fan of Blueprint Gaming slots, you'll be delighted with this hot new title which has so many special features to explore that you'll be engrossed each time you play it!
