Thunderbird Unified

Thunderbird by Rival Gaming aims to take you through the spirit realm by recreating the tropes of Native American beliefs and magic rites. While this imagery is fairly common in slots, Rival Gaming adds a welcome twist by avoiding the most tired cliches, like dauntless warriors with tomahawks and wolves howling at the moon. Does the slot game stand out from the mechanics standpoint as well? Let's take a look:

  • medium volatility;
  • RTP of about 94,6%
  • 50 paylines across 5 reels;
  • betting range: $0.01 to $125;
  • free Games and Super Spirits Features.

The list looks promising at first glance, especially in the bonus features department. Still, to experience the true power of the slot machine, we had to perform our own arcane ritual - the Thunderbird slot review you'll find below!

Design & Graphics

The player finds themself in a forest shrine from where the tribe's shaman embarks on the spirit walks. The decorations strongly suggest that the ritual is in full swing as the astral plane starts to seep into reality in the form of ethereal magenta waves. The playing board is supported by motley totems, one on each side. It features a plethora of characteristic trinkets and baubles - from snake figurines to eagle feathers and the obligatory spirit drum. The soundtrack is definitely fitting - it's a melancholy folk tune where heavy-hitting percussion overlaps with the gentle motives of a Native American flute. 

Basic Rules

The player's interaction with the game is executed in the most accessible manner, and you can always consult the handy built-in guide should you need to revise anything.

You don't need any special knowledge to enjoy the game from the get-go - just remember to prioritize Wilds and Scatters as they bring on additional rewards in the form of x2 win multipliers and free spins, respectively.

We also must commend Rival on how flexible the betting settings are - playing Thunderbird for real money will feel rewarding both for high-rollers and those with a strict bankroll limit.

Bonus Features

Free Games in Thunderbird are implemented with a familiar mechanic - you get 10 extra spins for three Red Fish symbols on the board, 20 for 4, and 50 for 5. What makes it special is that while bonus spins last, the Scatters change and thus gain a new property: Yellow Fish will take you to the Super Spirit round, where the entire first reel is filled with Wild symbols.
