Net Entertainment has released their newest slot machine, Thunderfist: a high-octane martial-arts themed game that features big prizes, fun characters, and some very cool features that should keep players interested in this game for a long time to come.
About The Game
In Thunderfist, you’ll get to see the kind of Kung Fu action now made famous in numerous Chinese martial arts films. The game features a cast of characters that seem like they could have been lifted right off the screen: the heroic fighter, beautiful and dangerous women, the wise old master, and many more. All of the characters are stylish, being drawn with a sharpness that creates a sense of dramatic action.
Thunderfist is an example of the growing popularity of “All Ways” slot machines which are becoming common among Net Entertainment slot machines. In these games, players don’t have to worry about paylines; instead, they just make a single bet, and then they can win any time they make winning combinations regardless of where they appear on the reels. Often, these games are known as “243 Ways” games due to the fact that there are 243 possible “paylines” on a five-reel, three-row slot machine display, which is the layout used by Thunderfist.
Since you don’t have to worry about paylines, betting in Thunderfist is very simple. You’ll simply pick a coin value – in most currencies, this runs between 0.01 and 0.50 – and then pick how many coins you’d like to wager on each spin, with levels of one through ten available. Don’t get confused, though: each “level” bets 25 coins, so a Level 10 bet is actually wagering 250 coins on each spin.
How To Win?
In order to win prizes, you’ll need to match three or more of the same symbol from left to right across the reels. There are ten symbols in all that you can try to match. The lower five symbols are card ranks (tens through aces), though even these are thematic, with the symbols being made out of bamboo. The higher value symbols are represented by the game’s major characters, with the top prize being 100 coins for a five-of-a-kind match. Of course, given the 243-payline system, any five-of-a-kind will also trigger many four-of-a-kind and three-of-a-kind wins as well, increasing the potential rewards.
Another way to win is through the game’s stacked wild system. The wilds in Thunderfist cover three spots on each reel, making it possible land the wild across the entire reel (or only part of it) on any given spin.
While there aren’t any second-screen bonus rounds, Thunderfist does include a free spins game. If you hit three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the screen, you’ll trigger a number of free spins – ranging from 10 free spins for three symbols, up to 20 free spins for five scatters. During the free spins, you’ll be given random multipliers every time you score a win, with multipliers of 2x through 5x being possible.
