Totem Lightning Power Reels is an unusual Native American-themed slot from Red Tiger Gaming. The action takes place on a massive 8 reel, 30 payline symbol drop game engine. Land a winner made up of a lower value symbol and that symbol is removed from play from the next drop. Look out too for cloned symbols. Play on all devices from 20p and £10 per spin.

The design in Totem Lightning Power Reels is simply done but looks very classy. Flanked by ornate head dresses and arrows, the reels feature lower value A to 10 playing card values plus 4 colourful carved animal totems. The best of the quartet is the gold and blue eagle totem.

Land 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 of these on a payline and you’ll receive a payout of 3, 6, 12, 22.5, 45 or 150 times your stake. After a winning spin, the successful symbols are blasted away and new ones drop in and replace them. A new payout calculation is then made. The symbol drops keep on coming as long as you land a new winning combination.

If the winner is made up of 1 of the lower value symbols, you’ll see a lightning strike hit. This removes all instances of that symbol from the reels. Get on a winning roll and you could see multiple symbols removed from play. This should make it easier to create higher value winners.

You can keep track of what’s in play via the Symbol Strike Bar to the right of the reels. The lightning strike can also clone symbols – this is known as the Reel Strike feature. If a lightning bolt hits a symbol on the Symbol Strike Bar, it’s remove from the reels before the respin.

There aren’t any free spins on offer here but the symbol drops and lightning strikes means that there’s a steady stream of action. Totem Lightning is a very volatile game too. The variance here is high. You can expect some lengthy winless spells but a winning run can deliver rich rewards – to the tune of 7,777 times your stake! The turbo mode is lightning fast too so proceed with caution there.

What you make of Totem Lightning depends largely on what you make of the Power Reels game engine. If you like simple, volatile, fast paced action then Totem Lightning offers just that. I recommend you take a look at Red Tiger Gaming’s Flaming Fox which also offers good win potential.
