The native American mythos isn’t one that has been widely covered by developers of video slot games like ancient Egypt or the ancient Aztecs have and it’s a bit of a shame, there’s a deep and rich lore there that would make for fantastic storytelling through video slots.
Well, Play’n GO has decided to take a crack at bringing that very theme to life with their title Thunder Screech. While there certainly have been other titles that cover this theme, they are few and far between.
How have they gone about accomplishing such a task? Well follow us as we jump in and figure out what makes this video slot game tick.
Theme & Symbols
As we’ve stated already, this video slot game focuses around native American beliefs, traditions and teachings.
The play grid is constructed mostly of wood, the left and right pillars are shaped in the form of totem poles and there are various feathers hanging across the grid. Immediately this imagery evokes pictures of teepees and headdresses. The grid is situated in the middle of a grassy area with trees just behind it and mountains further back.
The art work, while not Play’n GO’s best, is by no means bad. Everything looks carefully designed so as to not offend and be authentic.
Everything looks to be a standard Play’n GO fare with this title.
Starting off with the low-paying icons we have playing card values all made to look like they were made from wood. You’ll be seeing 10, J, Q, K and A quite frequently during your time with the game.
Next up are the high-paying symbols. These are all represented by animals you’d expect to see in the American wilderness. Keep an eye out for Beavers, Otters, Badgers, Wolves and Crows.
The elusive Wild symbol will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and can substitute for any other common icon in the game. There are also Thunder Wilds which may appear randomly and possess random multipliers up to x3 and are sticky.
The Scatter symbol, represented by a dreamcatcher, only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. Landing enough of these during a spin will award you with bonus spins and trigger bonus gameplay features.
