Some of our favourite slots have been developed by Thunderkick in recent years, with their creativity and innovation putting setting them apart from the competition. The Rift is a typically clever and original game, with a kind of horror theme, and a rare treat, an original bonus round!

This 2016 release comes in at 5 reels and 17 paylines, and it’s packed with Wilds, Sticky Wilds, bonuses and re-spins. In the bonus round there is a ‘Seal’ that advances as you collect scatters. As it advances you receive more free spins with extra wilds on the reels.

The game has an RTP of 96.2% and is medium variance, so it should appeal to most slot players, though the action is not quite as smooth as in other Thunderkick games like Esqueleto Explosivo. 

You can dive in and play The Rift at a stake of 10p to £100 per spin on mobile, desktop or tablet, at any of the Thunderkick Casinos. It’s available for free or for real play. Or read on for our full game review with an explanation of all the exciting features.




So, here’s the background to the game: The Rift is a giant chasm that has opened up in the ground down a dark alleyway in some no-where town. During the game your objective is to stop the different artifacts from being sucked down into The Rift.

The action takes place in a barely-lit cobbled alleyway, with a spooky and atmospheric soundtrack happening in the background. The reels are on a transparent background so you can see the walls and ground behind.

The symbols are a weird mixture of coins, watches, books and potion bottles. The book is the highest paying symbol, offering a 30x for five in a row. There is  also a Wild symbol that will substitute for any other except the Bonus symbol. The bonus itself triggers Rift Spin and the Bonus Round depending on how many pitch at one time.

Look out as well for Sticky Wilds.

There are several cool features to look out for in this game:

Rift Spin – This is triggered by two of the Bonus (scatter) symbols pitching at once. You get one re-spin where between 1 and 3 sticky wilds have been added to the reels to increase your chances of winning.

Bonus Round – This is an interesting and original feature. Three scatters will set it off with Free Spins awarded as follows: 3 scatters gets 10 free spins, 4 scatters gets 15 free spins and 5 scatters gets 20 free spins.

The original part is the activation of the Rift Seal at the start of your Spins. Every time a scatter lands during the free spins, an extra step on the seal is activated and this continues until all steps are filled. Every third step along the way gets you 2 more free spins and 1 extra sticky wild. This brings you chances for some really big wins.


This is another highly original slot from Thunderkick. The graphics and soundtrack are pretty awesome, creating a very atmospheric game. You can pick up reasonable wins in the base game but to really cash in you have to hit the bonus round and hope you can activate the full seal. Good luck!
