Thunderkick provider has a balanced video slot that combines classic principles and special features. Innovations are not abstruse, they can be understood quickly. Formally, the game can be classified as a classic slot with two special features in the bonus game: fixed wild symbols and "collecting trophies".
The idea of the creators: in a certain city at night, a rift opens (a crack in the pavement), from which artifacts and strange entities appear. There are no characters or plot in the game.
The rich color palette of pure colors inherent for Thunderkick developments is not present in the "Rift" slot also. It will not be appropriate: mystical events must take place under the cover of night. High-level musical accompaniment is appropriate - a disturbing Dark Ambient track. This kind of music is always used in disaster movies.

In regular spins, everything is ordinary: paid combinations of symbols are formed on five reels with 15 playing cells. The number of lines is unusual - 17. There are 8 items in the game that form winning chains. Each chain must contain at least three elements. Combinations are built from the first reel. The reel is not "real", because the symbols are "hang" in the air. If there are several combinations in one round, all are paid for.
The Wild symbol plays without any tricks: it just substitutes any other items in the sequences. But this happens until the appearance of several scatter symbols (circles with the inscription "the Rift").
Two scatters activate a mini-bonus game from a single free spin (respin). The number of extra-wilds for the respin is randomly assigned: from 1 to 3.
Three scatters will trigger 10 free spins, four scatters - 15, and 5 scatter symbols - 20 free spins. The number of extra wilds from 1 to 3 will also be generated before the free spins.
Free spins on The Rift slot machine
During free spins, the wild's properties change. Wilds become "sticky". This means that the "wild" symbol remains in its position until it enters the paid combination. After the payment, only those wilds that participated in the construction of the winning chain disappear, the rest continue to "hang" on the playing field. During testing, there were times when 7 or 8 cells were filled with wilds.
In addition to the "sticky" wild symbols, the "trophy collection" function works during free spins. In the center of the screen there is a counter with nine positions. When a scatter appears, one position is filled. When positions #3, #6 and #9 are filled, the player receives additional prizes.
For three collected scatters, you get plus one sticky wild and two additional free spins.
For six consecutive scatters in the bonus game, the player gets two sticky wilds and two free spins.
9th position of the scatter counter gives three additional "sticky" wilds. There will still be two additional free spins.
List of symbols with payouts
With a bet of $1 per spin, the winnings for combinations will be as follows (for 3 and for 5 on the line)
4 types of coins ("cheap" symbols) - from $0.3 to $0.6 for a chain of three and from $3 to $6 for a chain of five. Vessel - $1/ $10; Octopus - $1/ $10; Watch - $1/ $10; Book - $1/ $10; WILD - $30 for 5 in a row; Scatter - symbol ("Rift") - no payment.
According to the results of 3000 testing spins on the demo version, the Rift slot allows you to constantly stay in the positive without any drawdown at all. This was provided by "sticky" wilds. Although this duration of the test is not indicative, the RTP is not bad - 96.3%. You can risk using the game to fulfill wager requirements for casino bonuses.
