Graphics and Theme
Set in the wild African Savannah on a stunning fiery sunset backdrop, Lion Thunder reminds you of the beloved Disney classic The Lion King but with a more adult feel. Blueprint Gaming are notoriously known for their excellent graphics, and this game is no different with elephants basking in the background, golden fields and true-to-life shady trees. Once you trigger a bonus round on Lion Thunder, you’ll enter into a night-time scene complete with lightning and of course, thunder. Visually, it’s very well done.
Symbols include the default low-value royals in bright primary and secondary colours alongside realistic-looking premium symbols consisting of stern leopards, glowing black panthers and regal lions. There’s also a diamond wild symbol and a thunder ‘free’ spins symbol.
The soundtrack to the slot has an upbeat African vibe, with what sounds like drums and whistles included. When you make a win during the bonus round, a short snippet of a traditional African chant is played along with the classic slot sounds that denote winning spins. All in all, the whole game comes together well.
The wild symbol in Lion Thunder is the diamond, which replaces all other symbols to make winning combos except the scatter symbol.
The scatter symbol is labelled ‘Thunder Spins’ in Lion Thunder and is the game’s logo.
Jackpot King System
There’s a jackpot to be won on this slot, which is the latest game to use Blueprint’s super successful Jackpot, King System. They’re triggered randomly where you spin the reels, and you’ve got to hope for landing a crown symbol. Get 15 or more, and you’ll enter the Wheel King section where you can win big bet multiplier prizes.
There are also three progressive jackpots available – Royal Pot, Regal Pot and Jackpot King, with the latter paying out 7 figure sums. It’s key to understand that these are local progressive jackpots, which means they’re individual to the casino, or casino group where you play the slot game and not worldwide.
Thunder ‘Free’ Spins and Multiplying Wilds
Land 3 or more scatter ‘Thunder Spins’ symbols on the reels, and you’ll access the Free Spins round. The more scatters you get, the more free spins you get, for example:
- 3 scatters = 8 free spins
- 4 scatters = 15 free spins
- 5 scatters = 25 free spins
- 6 scatters = 100 free spins
During the Thunder Spins round, the diamond Wild symbol comes with a multiplier attached which can boost your payouts by 2x, 3x or even 5x! This symbol is incremental to giving you the chance of huge win!
Furthermore, if you land three or more scatters during the Thunder Spin round, you’ll instigate a full retrigger of spins. Landing 2 more will give you five extra spins. This means there is no limit to how many free spins you get in this feature – cha-ching.
