Thunderkick, known for innovations in slot gameplay, proved to be capable to create diverse products. Developers tamed their creativity a bit and created a slot for gamblers who like Novomatic machines, The slot got the name The Falcon Huntress.

The visual is deliberately made similar to "Gaminator" - Novomatic brand for online casinos. The player, in fact, see only the playing field, which occupies 90% of the screen with only a few decorations along the sides. And Thunderkick moved away from clear and saturated colors. Only the main symbol - the heroine portrait - is animated.
Sound is also minimalistic. Of course, it's not as bad as in 2004. But The Falcon Huntress does not have good tracks of various styles. Drums sounds are the soundtrack.
The slot has 5 reels, the game field is 5x3 and it has 9 lines. Combinations are formed from the left side only. In case multiple combos are formed, all are paid for.
4 most valuable symbols are paid for starting from 2 in a line (by the way, that is characteristic Novomatic feature). There are 9 base symbols in total.
The Falcon Huntress slot machine bonus game
The Wild and the Scatter are combined in a single symbol - the falcon. The Wild works identically in both standard and bonus plays - it replaces any other symbols just the same as card Joker. It works as a standard Scatter as well - 3 falcons start 10 free spins after they appear in any part of the playfield. Regardless of the lines. The special symbol works on any reel.
Falcon is also paid for as a Scatter - for 3 at a time regardless of lines. Free spins offer nothing to talk about - there are always 10 of them with no extra options and features but with a possibility to get additional free spins.
However, not everything is bog-standard. The Falcon Huntress standard game has some features that can usually be found in other slots' bonus games.
Approximately once per 30 spins the winning combination randomly expands over multiple reels depending on the number of symbols in the starting chain: 2, 3, 4 or 5. It may lead to all 9 lines being paid for in a single spin. The most valuable symbol - the girl's portrait, can also expand. Overall, it is quite similar to the Book of Ra slot. The special symbol is never expanded.
With 1 dollar bet on all 9 lines the payouts will be as follows (per 3 or 5 in a line):
- cards - from 50 cents to 10 to 15 dollars depending on the card.
- The falcon's feather - 2,5 to 50 dollars;
- The egg - $2,5/$75
- The bow - $2.5/$100;
- The main heroine portrait - $10/$500.
The rules state the maximum possible multiplier for one round is x10052. It's not clear how it works, since if all the screen will be filled with the most expensive symbol, it will give nine combinations with 500 bets each. This is a multiplier of x4500 which is not that bad either.
The Falcon Huntress online slot earned its popularity due to familiar to gamblers gameplay similar to well-known slots by Novomatic. Due to an unusual for standard game expanding symbols feature the slot often allows to stay positive. Claimed RTP is 96.1%, the volatility is medium.
