Thunderfist is 5-reel online slot machine produced by the mighty NetEnt, offering 243 ways to win rather than paylines, albeit all bets are based on a 25 payline structure. The theme of the slot centres around a master samurai warrior and his crew, as well as martial arts in general.

The action is set in a bamboo forest, where our warriors are ready to fight their enemy, the Reel Wizard. Bright and vivid graphics based on the colour green and arcade-style animations are complemented by sounds effects and a soundtrack that bring to mind famous old school martial art games and films.

With 243 ways to win, multiple payouts can be accumulated on a single spin of the game. This slot game will certainly appeal to mid-rollers, although the massive payout that can exceed 1 million coins will also make this attractive to high-rollers.

This is available in the free spins round, where the action gets frantic to an unparalleled level making this definitely the highlight of the game.  What makes this game stand out from the crowd is the random multiplier, with each free spin changing what is on offer for players.

Important Symbols

This game has a terrific wild that will expand to cover the reel fully. This symbol is represented by the Wizard, which can appear on all 5 reels both in the main game and in the bonus round. The Wild won’t always expand but will sometimes appear as a single wild, a stacked wild of two symbols or three (whole reel).

The Scatter is represented by a golden dragon medallion and it’s used to trigger the special feature in the game, but will not offer payouts like a traditional scatter.

Potential Winnings

The base game has relatively low-value prizes associated with the main characters, with a top fixed jackpot of 100 coins, which is comparatively low for a 243 ways to win machine.

However, the free spin round is where it can get interesting, with players fighting their way through for the chance to win the impressive overall maximum jackpot of 1,215,000 coins.

Bonus Features

The only bonus feature available in this game is represented by the free spin round. This is triggered when at least 3 scatters appear on the reels, awarding players with a number of free spins based on the number of scatters.

Starting from 10 free spins with 3 scatters, to 15 free spins with 4 scatters and finally 20 free spins with 5 scatters. During this game feature, a random multiplier will increase wins by anything between 2x and 5x the normal payouts.

With the highest multiplier and combinations of the top-paying symbols, players will be able to win the maximum jackpot from the free spin feature alone. The free spin bonus round cannot be re-triggered.
