Blueprint Gaming takes us down memory lane with the ThunderCats slot. Back in the 80s, it was a huge hit, so much so that it wasn’t uncommon seeing an action figure in the school yard or next to the lockers. The arcade-like audio evokes a degree of pleasant remembrances, mainly because, all of us enjoyed our school days. Whenever an online casino studio takes an off-the-shelf theme, the game at hand can be a hit or miss. If the designers are well familiar with the said theme, or brand, or superhero, the game ends up how the loyal fans have imagined it. However, in the past, we’ve witnessed some catastrophic misses. Fortunately, Blueprint Gaming has done a great job!

First and foremost, do not underestimate the seemingly short reels. The symbol grid is still a 5x4, featuring a total of 30 paylines. Nevertheless, the reels can expand, ergo set the ground for higher chances of winning, and overall, higher prizes. The reels can expand showing up to 8 symbols each! That’s 8 rows, 5x8 symbol grid!
Adjusting the bet size should be the first thing on your mind when the game loads. Players can enjoy the ThunderCats slot with a minimum stake of 0.40, whereas the maximum possible bet amount is staggering 500. Landing 5 or more Wild symbols will bring you the jackpot, which is 400x the bet amount. Nevertheless, in our opinion, you should aim for the bonus feature prizes, not the base game wins. All things considered, the overall RTP is 95.5%, which is below the market average.
The best part about the ThunderCats slot is that you get to play with each character, which is randomly selected. Each character comes with a distinctive bonus feature which can take place in the base game. However, before we through each of them, we should point out that the Wild symbol takes the shape of the featured, currently active character, or it can also be the ThunderCats symbol. Lastly, the Bonus symbol shows the Logo of ThunderCats.
Now we can go through each of the characters, pointing out the benefits they bring on the reels. Note, you can’t choose the character with whom you want to play with before at the start of the game. You will be given options down the road, to keep playing with the current selected character or ReSpin, and start playing with a different one.
As you can see, the characters really make for a custom experience, and it’s highly unlikely that two sessions can ever be the same. In other words, ThunderCats can be the entertaining slot you’ve been looking for all this time. Now, let’s take a look at the two features that can trigger during base game.
So far we’ve covered the basics, or in other words, what can happen in the base game. It’s time to check out the distinctive Free Spins and the bonus games.
The villains are featured in the Free Spins and the bonus games, that’s why the said features are titled in that manner. Mumm-Ra, Slithe, Monkian, Jackalman are about to clash with the iconic ThunderCats. Depending on the number of Bonus symbols that appear on the reels, you can be taken to the Thunder Bonus where you can trigger one of the below mentioned bonus features. You can either take it or Gamble it, and trigger better Free Spins rounds.
Here’s a brief description of what you should know about each of them, before you gamble them away.
It’s a content rich slot, and due to the variations and the bonus feature diversity, both fans of the TV series ThunderCats and players who’ve never heard of it will enjoy it, for sure! We liked it, mainly because of the well-defined, but also rewarding features. The hit rate is rather low, but the profit potential of the bonus features makes up for this. Blueprint Gaming created a unique masterpiece!
