ALL ABOUT TIGER RUSH SLOT
We’re usually thrilled with anticipation when we see another Thunderkick slot straight out of the box. Falcon Huntress and Wild Heist at Peacock Manor have both provided some enthralling high volatility action this year.
But, with that strange Yeti slot, the temperature has lately decreased a little, and we now have another low variance number with a low potential. The visuals aren’t quite up to the excellent standards of games like Pink Elephants or Flame Busters, and there’s none of the kaleidoscopic craziness or humour of Esqueleto Explosivo!
But, hey, every now and then it’s fun to take a break from the action and play a game that serves as extra fodder. So, before we pass judgement, let’s take a closer look.
Setup for Tiger Rush
This is a straightforward slot with five reels and three rows. The standard game has ten paylines, which increase to twenty-five in the bonus round, when the middle three reels each extend by two rows. The expanding wilds and free spins round are the two most important elements.
Tiger Rush, like all other Thunderkick games, has a betting range of $0.10 to $100 each spin. It has a 96.3 percent RTP and a low to medium volatility.
Symbols in the Game Tiger Rush
The game features seven fundamental symbols: brilliantly coloured pebbles in purple, blue, red, green, and yellow, as well as two drawn woodland landscapes, one of which features a bird. With a payout of 15x for five on a payline, this is the highest paying symbol.
Keep an eye out for the Tiger, which acts as a Wild symbol, compensating for all other symbols except the scatter. It ALWAYS expands to full reel height when it lands on the middle reels.
The game logo is the scatter, and it only appears on reels 1 and 5 to activate the free spins round.
Features of the Tiger Rush Slot Machine
Expanding Wilds – When the Wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, it will always grow. A re-spin is initiated when this happens. All other symbols are likewise stacked, allowing you to fill the entire screen with the top-paying sign.
To get the free spins with extended reels, go to the Free Spins Bonus Round. Either 2 scatters or 1 scatter and 1 adjacent Wild are required (i.e. scatter on reel 1 and wild on reel 2, or scatter on reel 5 and wild on reel 4).
For two scatters or a combination of one wild and one scatter, you’ll get five free spins. If you get both combos at the same time, you’ll earn 10 free spins.
The Free Spins round begins when your middle three reels stretch from three to five rows high. The gameplay is the same, but there are now 25 paylines instead of 10 with a maximum win of 1783x.
There are ways to obtain more spins – 2 more scatters will bring you 5 free spins, and 2 scatters and 2 wilds will get you another 10!
THE VERDICT OF THE SLOT BUZZ
Tiger Rush lacks the high-octane feature-packed thrill of some of Thunderkick‘s finest games, but it is definitely aimed at a different demographic. This one will appeal to those who want their slot action to be calm and steady. The RTP is fair, and the rewards are moderate and consistent — it won’t sting you for your money or laugh in your face. It’s nice enough for a wet day, but we’re saving our money for the next high volatility release!
