Casino game developers Thunderkick certainly like to break the mold when it comes to their game designs, and The Rift is no different, as you will see when you first open the game, to be greeted by the colour pallet of fluorescent pink on a background of a dark alleyway. Rift is an extremely popular slot game found at quirky online casino Vera & John, along with many others.
The Rift is a five reel, 17 pay line game that offers desktop and mobile/tablet compatibility so that players can enjoy the mystical game on the go. The mobile version of the game has the same functionality and design, but some people have commented that the accessibility of this verses the desktop version is actually better!
The game’s default wager is 100 coins; however, players can choose to place bets between $0.10 and $100 – so this game suits beginners and high rollers alike!
The Rift’s aesthetic seems to center around the idea of back-alley magic which you can see by the various symbols including a pocket watch, a spell book, an octopus, an ominous looking green potion and bronze, silver and gold coins. The alleyway is foggy which gives it a feel of mystery and intrigue.
When spinning the reels, the free spins feature is triggered by finding three of more of the ‘The Rift’ emblazoned symbols. Three of these scatter symbols will give you ten free spins, four will get you 15, and for five you are given 20 free spins! Wilds are frozen in place as ‘sticky wilds’ during these rounds until they become part of a winning line when they will disappear. If you only find two of The Rift scatter symbols you will be awarded one free spin, and up to three wilds too. The wild is represented by a simple purple logo with the word ‘Wild’ written across it and will substitute for all other symbols (except The Rift icon) to help make a winning combination!
The highest possible payout is obtained when you find five Wild icons or five of the book of spells on an active pay line, and with this, you will receive a whopping 30x your total stake!
The Rift is a uniquely designed game which is visually appealing, with an inoffensive, thematic soundtrack. The bonus features increase the chances of winning and keep the gaming exciting and engaging. Overall, and as it to be expected from a Thunderkick game, The Rift is a fantastic casino slot that is a lot of fun to play!
