The Rift

the-rift-slot-logoThe Rift is a slots game inspired by the true horror, mystery and dark rites that remind us of Lovecraft descriptions. The game transports us into a mysterious dark alley where a supernatural rift is open on the floor taking with him all sorts of obscure tokens and objects from magical sources, dark magic books, enchanted clocks, up to the dark and mythical creature Cthulhu’s offspring.

On the background we see the Rift Seal carved in the wall, that becomes activated and filled with the dark runes as we enter through the Rift Spin feature.

This immersive environment is completed with some mystic animations and music that fits its purpose of setting the dark tone over the game.The mysterious and dark nature of The Rift is unknown but its presence during the game play will be felt as soon as you begin to play, as the floor opens up and the items begin to fall continuously.

Developer

Thunderkick is a kind of new developing company established in Sweden founded by veteran game enthusiasts and game developers, focused mainly on slots games for online casinos.

After a very long time (nearly eighteen months of silence) where Thunderkick’s goal was to make their games more modern and launching mobile versions of them, they finally launched their newest game. This game (The Rift) can be played with all its features on all platforms and mobile devices.

How to play it

The Rift is a slots game played with 5 reels, 3 rows and 17 paylines. It has 4 low paying slots symbols represented by coins with dark emblems, and 4 high paying slots symbols in the form of magical artifacts.

The game also has a Wild Symbol and a Scatter Symbol that will trigger a Re-Spin or a bonus Rift Spin feature with multiple Free Spins and Sticky Wilds. The panel has the Spin button, the Select Bet button and an Autoplay button.

Special Features

The special feature of this game is triggered by the Scatter Symbol which has The Rift Logo. With 2 of them, you get a Free Spin with some random number of added Wild Symbols, determined by the Rift Seal on the back.

If you get 3, 4 or 5 of The Rift Logo Scatter Symbols, you launch the really awesome Rift Spin feature that has 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins. During the Rift Spin feature, all Wild Symbols become Sticky Wild Symbols until they contribute to a winning line, and any new Rift Logo Scatter Symbol that appears will light up one of the 9 runes of the Rift Seal until they all are lighted.

Every 3 runes lighted, it will add 2 bonus Free Spins and also an additional Sticky Wild Symbol to each remaining Free Spins. If you manage to fill all runes, the insane amount of Sticky Wild Symbols will trigger some considerable big wins in every remaining Free Spin.

Maximum Payout

The maximum payout is 500x that can be gotten by triggering the most Free Spins in the Rift Spin Feature and filling it with tons of Sticky Wild Symbols.

The regular game pay table is really low but that game feature really helps to balance things out and it becomes active easily. The RTP of the game is 96.3%, which is a really nice amount if compared to other slots games out there.

Summary

The Rift is a good game that will get you involved with its dark and mysterious theme. The regular game is pretty standard with low rewards and can be felt a bit boring at times, but the excitement of the Free Spins and how easy it’s to activate them will compensate that.

The graphics of the symbols and the size of them are not the best, but the soundtrack, the animations and the Rift Seal mechanic with its Sticky Wild Symbols, is something that will keep you engaged.

However, The Rift isn’t a game where you can make huge profits, so if you’re expecting on making a fortune with online gaming or you’re a big fan of absorbing visual effects, graphics and animations, you should look elsewhere.
