Sunset Delight

It has been quite a while since we saw a new video slot launched by Thunderkick. Recently, though, Thunderkick did exactly that, when they unveiled their new Sunset Delight video slot.

The slot machine game contains a very simplistic gaming structure, and is in actuality more like a classic slot than a video slot. That is to say, a classic slot with special features. The game itself is actually based on its predecessor (yes, it is a sequel) and is themed on ice-cream. Whether you get one scoop or two playing this seaside favourite is entirely up to you and lady luck, though.

If there is one thing you will enjoy about this slot, it is the top notch graphics, with the reels taking the shape of ice cream toppings, with each topping being a symbol, and those symbols being stacked one on top of the other.

Developers

Thunderkick are one of the smaller scale developers of online slots, so don’t expect huge wonders. They appeared at roughly the same time as Yggdrasil. Both were thought to have very bright futures ahead of them, and for a while the two companies went head to head.

Yggdrasil has pulled away from Thunderkick of late, though, namely by releasing more and more slots whilst Thunderkick has been left in the dust. Do they redeem themselves and get back on track with Sunset Delight? They might do, only time will tell.

How to play

Sunset Delight doesn’t actually look that different to its predecessor, it terms of the design of its wagering control bar, its options, and backdrop. Sunset Delight doesn’t offer you too much wiggle room in the wagering department, either.

The game only features 3 reels and 5 paylines, and none of those are going to be adjustable. In fact, the smallest coin value is $0.02, so you are going to have to wager at least $0.10 a spin on this game. If you wish to flex your financial muscle, you can stake up to $100 a pop on this slot.

Features

Wild symbols: There is a wild symbol in the Sunset Delight slot, and it appears as a multi-coloured topping with “W” etched into it in blue. Wild toppings can substitute themselves for all other symbols in the slot, barring scatter icons.

Scatter icon: That scatter icon is represented by a wafer symbol. This is also called the Step/Spin symbol in the bonus round. If players land 3 of these simultaneously on the reels, they will trigger a free spins bonus round in the Sunset Delight classic slot.

Step/Spin bonus: To kick off with, players will be rewarded with 5 free spins in this bonus. However, if players locate more scatters during the bonus, and they are carrying Step/Spin text, then they will either bag one extra spin to their tally (Spin), or raise their multiplier by 1x (Step). Multipliers are capable of reaching up to 100x in total, if you are fortunate to make free spins last that long.

Maximum pay-outs

Even though there is a 100x multiplier in the free spins bonus round, that is not the non-progressive jackpot in this slot. On the contrary, the non-progressive jackpot is actually fixed at around the 1,000 coins mark, and it can be won in the base game, as well as the free spins bonus.

Of course, winning the non-progressive jackpot with a 100x multiplier is always going to result in a more colossal win.

Summary

Sunset Delight certainly looks the part. It has a crafty little setup, and is far superior to its predecessor. However, in terms of features, it isn’t that original. Worst still is the timing of this classic slot machine game. Perhaps Sunset Delight would have made more of an impact had it been released during the height of summer.

For some reason, Thunderkick chose to wait until the end of summer to release this summer themed slot. It’s not the smartest move, really, is it? Summer Delight has some nifty features you may dig, but for me, this one has just come a little too late to hold my interest. All the same, if you are after a modern classic slot, Sunset Delight wouldn’t be too bad a way to go.
