Zoom

Zoom is a video slot released by Thunderkick on desktop and mobile in July 2016, and it is not built around a particular theme, but rather resembles Vegas-style fruit machines, featuring many of the famous symbols.

However, the game developers appear to have created a cross between a classic slot and contemporary video slots, introducing an unconventional gameplay, six separate gaming screens merged into one and Massive Symbols.

And with the game housing sleek visuals and pretty good sound effects, chances are you will enjoy playing Zoom on your desktop, tablet or smartphone devices.

Developer

Thunderkick is yet another Swedish software provider that has enjoyed a steady growth since first appearing on the market and they have been going strong since 2012.

Based out of Stockholm, the company has already joined hands with some of the leading casino operators, and their innovative approach to online casino games has made everyone stand up and take notice.

Rather than copying the competition, Thunderkick makes sure to introduce trademark special features in most titles, and that is why titles like Esqueleto Explosivo, Birds on a Wire and The Rift have quickly become very popular among casino gamers.

How to Play It

Zoom video slot is played at six reels and 64 fixed paylines, allowing gamers to wager between $0.10 and $100 per single spin of the reels.

You need three or more matching icons on a payline starting from the leftmost reel to secure an instant credit win, with expected values shown in the Paytable.

When it comes to game icons used to form winning combinations, these include stars, lucky sevens, bells, grapes, watermelons, lemons and cherries. Wild symbol is also present and it substitutes for other game icons with the exception of Zoom symbol.

The game screen is divided into six areas, but this has no effect on the main game and only concerns the Zoom icon. Read on to learn more about this special feature.

Special Features

Thunderkick have stayed true to their designing new and never-before-used extra features rather than copying some of the bonus games and free spins round we have seen in the past. Following the Rift symbol in the game of the same name, it is now Zoom icon that is at the centre of attention, acting as a rather strange Scatter.

Each Zoom symbol appearing anywhere on the game screen expands into a Massive Symbol (2×2) and triggers a free re-spin. However, if you get Zoom icons in four areas forming a square, Super Massive Symbol will appear, covering no fewer than 16 positions (4×4) and awarding impressive wins.

This is the only extra feature in the game, but it is good enough to pay out substantial wins every once in a while.

Maximum Payout

Zoom is clearly a high volatility game, seeing as how base line payouts are not frequent, but they are worth several times the total stake on average.

The 96.2% theoretical return to player is enough to suggest that casino gamers have a decent shot at turning a profit, with Super Massive Symbols clearly their best chance to seriously improve their account balance.

With regards to the maximum payout per spin, you will be glad to hear that it stands at 1,500x total bet, which translates to between $150 and $150,000, depending on your stake at the time.

Summary

Zoom is a game that is not exactly classic slot, nor is it video slot in the true sense of the word, but rather than trying to categorise it, you should simply enjoy what it has to offer.

We dare say this is not one of Thunderkick’s most accomplished works, especially since you may lose your patience waiting for the big win to strike and leave the game before you get a chance to compensate for all those losing spins.

On the other hand, we have really enjoyed Zoom icon, Massive Symbols and Super Massive Symbols, as well as the visual appearance of the game.

The $0.10-$100 betting range will appeal to both casual gamers and high rollers, so you should definitely give Zoom a go at least for a few dozen spins.
