The Thunder King Aristocrat slot game is one of the Australian developer’s most exciting creations. It is a five reel, thirty pay line slot game that sees the player enveloped in the Ancient Greek world of angry gods, beautiful princesses and plenty of thunder and lightning, which is actually quite fearsome.
The player will see the bearded King Zeus throwing around the bolts of lightning and crashes of thunder, a lovely auburn haired goddess, gold helmets, goblets, winged horses and tornadoes. There is also one of the major symbols, Mount Olympus. Also present in the symbols are the standard card symbols, 10 through to Aces.
The Mount Olympus is the main symbol to watch. Three or more of the Mount Olympus symbols appearing on the reels will reward the player with 10, 15 or 20 free spins. These are not like ordinary free spins, however, as three extra bonuses can be added to the free spins.
If the bearded King Zeus symbol appears, the player will be rewarded with a Lightning bonus. The Lightning reel becomes Wild, which will earn more wins. If five Thunder Kings are shown on the reels, there will appear a full screen of Wilds. This Wild will be able to substitute for all symbols except the scatter. In addition to the Lightning reel, if the player finds any more Thunder Kings, each one will earn a Tornado bonus. The Tornado symbol acts as a Wild and it stays in the window at that position for a few extra games. Another exciting bonus can be awarded if the player hits even more symbols of the Thunder King Aristocrat slot game during the Free Spins round. The prize of the Snow bonus is between one and a thousand credits, and this is multiplied further by the total credits bet.
The symbols used in this game are voted some of the most attractive in any of Aristocrat’s games, which can sometimes be classified as functional rather than artistic. The sounds are also realistic, which affords a great combination of animations and sound. The developer has created some good atmospheric effects, which fits well into the theme of the Thunder King Aristocrat slot game.
Game Play and Prizes to Be Won
While graphics and sound claim the interest of all land based players, the players who play online have a wider range of choices, and are often more concerned about the actual game play. Thunder King has slightly more options, as the online version of the game allows players to cover up to thirty pay lines with a good deposit. Lines and coins are adjustable enough so the player can use a single line if he prefers.
Features and Bonuses
The Free Spins bonus round is usually where the Thunder King Aristocrat slot game’s big money wins are to be found. Players should always be on the lookout for Scatters, and in the case of the Thunder King, the Mount Olympus is the symbol to look out for. Three Scatters will reward the player with ten free spins, but four scatters increases that number to fifteen. One on each reel makes for twenty free spin s, and that can start some exciting action. The Thunder King can flash lightning at the reels, and if he hits all five there can be a huge cash prize.
