The Rift is a Thunderkick-powered slot game with 5 reels and 17 paylines. Playable from 10p to £100 a spin, it’s available to play across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The game is based on a mysterious rift that appears in a murky back alley of a town which feeds on all the world’s magical artefacts. Your aim is to collect them before they are sucked through (the rift).
In terms of the game, it features wilds, sticky wilds and a free spins bonus feature. The Rift is action packed with dark symbols, an immersive soundtrack and powerful Sticky Wilds symbols. The theme is a tad horror fiction where stories of great entities threaten madness and darkness in the world. Look out for the book symbol which has the highest value and rewards you with 30 times your stake if you get 5 on a payline.
The Rift symbol is the game’s scatter with 2 of them giving you a Rift Spin – this gives you a respin with between 1 and 3 sticky wild symbols randomly added to the reels.
Now, if you get 3 scatters on the reels, you will trigger the Bonus feature – the Rift seal is activated and advances 1 step for each scatter collected. Every 3 steps you advance until the seal fills, will give you 1 extra randomly placed Sticky Wild and 2 additional free spins. There are up to 3 sticky wilds to be added during the feature which can result in huge wins.
The Rift may sound confusing but it’s pretty straight forward once you get going – I found it to be a medium variance game with big wins in both the features as well as the base game. The maximum win is a cool 815 times your stake. Graphically, The Rift looks fantastic with a bonus feature I’ve never quite seen before – thumbs up to Thunderkick. I also recommend you try their other slots including the superb Esqueleto Explosivo and the Japanese-style Toki Time.
