Thunderspin Jackpots is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from NextGen Gaming that can be played on all devices from 25p to £50 per spin. It comes with a Lightning Spin feature where you can get up to 6 free spins where 2x wilds are stacked to give you up to 6x multiplier. There’s also a Thunder Wheel feature where you spin the wheel to win up to 250 times your total stake. Finally, there are 3 progressive jackpots to be won.
Visually, Thunderspin Jackpots has a retro neon theme – with classic symbols on the reels such as Bars, Double Bars, Triple Bars, bells, cherries, blue 7s, gold 7s and red 7s, they also have a neon feel to them. You also wild the 2x Wild which replaces all symbols bar the scatter.
When the 2x Wild is part of a winning combination, the win is doubled – if you were to get 2 wilds in a winning combination, you’d benefit from a 4x multiplier. If you’re lucky enough to get 3 of them, your win will be subject to a 6x multiplier.
The game comes with a Lightning Spin feature which is triggered randomly in the base game – you will be rewarded with 3 free spins. Each free spin gives you the chance to win an extra free spin meaning you can get 6 in total. More importantly, the 2x Wild is stacked meaning a higher chance of winning – as in the base game, 2 or 3 wilds in combination will give you a 4x or 6x multiplier respectively.
You also have a Thunder Wheel feature which is played when 3 or more Bonus Wheel scatters appear anywhere in the base game – you then press the spin button to spin the Thunder Wheel. Here you can win cash prizes up to 250 times your total stake. You can also land on a retrigger segment to give you more spins of the wheel.
Lastly, Thunderspin Jackpots offers you the chance to win 3 progressive jackpots – the Minor, Major and Mega Jackpots. Part of the jackpot network which includes Medusa II Jackpots, you can enter the jackpot game randomly after a base game spin. The Mega Jackpot is the most valuable!
Overall, Thunderspin Jackpots is a decent slot and its good for NextGen Gaming to increase their progressive jackpot offering – it’s a medium variance game which a maximum of 250 times your stake on offer (via the Thunder Wheel feature). Saying that, I do prefer other NextGen Gaming offerings such as King Kong Fury which offer more in the way of bonus features.
