Thunder Shields Slot Review – ISoftBet
It has only been a couple of weeks since my last ISoftBet slot review, which was ‘Queen Of Hearts Megaways‘. Which surprised me with the detailed unique artwork and visual aspects. The studio did a fantastic job on this release and I hope the good streak continues today. The studio goes from Megaways to the classic reel mechanics in their latest release. Which is titled ‘Thunder Shields‘, which has no confirmed release date yet.
This slot takes us back to the Viking years, which is a popular theme choice within the casino industry. The slot background is set on a pirate ship, sailing in the sunset. There are noticeable animations to catch your eye such as birds flying, sails moving in the wins, and the sine of the shields. The real colour can be seen within the pirate character premium symbols. I think IsSftBet has done a fantastic job with the visual aspects, lets learn more about the features and statistics.
Thunder Shields has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 40 set pay lines. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96% and max win capped at 4,035x. You can bet from £0.40 – £40.
Thunder Shields Pay Table & Symbols
There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by grey-haired pirates, blonde-haired pirates, a female redhead pirate, and a red-haired pirate wearing a horned helmet. In addition to these regular symbols is a mystery symbol, wild, and cash shield symbol. The highest paying symbol is the pirate wearing a helmet, which pays 2.5x for 5 across a pay line. Mystery symbols land as full or partial stacks and all reveal a random regular symbol, the same symbol during the same spin. Wilds substitute all regular symbols and trigger a colossal respin.
Thunder Shields Features
Colossal Respins are triggered after any wilds land during a base game spin. With giant symbols on reels 1 and 2 for this feature. If a wild lands during any respin another spin is awarded with giant symbols expanding in size to cover an extra reel. up to a maximum of 4 reels. Cash Shields symbols can be a colossal symbol, which gives the possibility to trigger the Hold & Win Respins feature.
The Hold & Respin feature is triggered by landing 6 or more cash shield symbols during one spin. This will award 3 respins with cash symbols from the trigger staying in a place with cash values. During respins, only cash shields and special shields can be seen on reels. When a new symbol lands the respins will reset to 3. This feature ends when respins are down to 0 and all cash values are added to your total win. The special shields are;
Collector – Collects all cash values
Reel Booster – Adds 1 extra reel (Up to 2 extra reels can be added in total)
Cash boost – Boost all cash values
Respins Boost – Increase the number of respins by 1
There are 3 possible Thunderstorm prizes available during the Hold & Win feature. Mini, Major, and Mega jackpots, collecting 3 storm shields will unlock these prizes and only one of the three jackpots can be awarded per feature.
Overall, I think ISoftbet has done a fantastic job creating their latest slot release. If you are into respin mechanics this game is definitely for you, with a max win of 4,000x for a medium variance. Be sure to try out the slot on release for yourself.
