Where to play
Design & Symbols
Once again Thunderkick has created a magical, otherworldly design. The loading sequence shows an early modern ship high in the sky during an almighty storm. The storm is still raging once the game has loaded with animated grey clouds billowing forth and rain lashing down. The gameboard is framed in wood with brass corner plates and a swaying lamp hanging off both top corners. The wind, rain, thunder, and lightning whistle lash, and crash in the background whilst a gentle but sombre refrain accompanies the play.
Low-value symbols are the standard card values 9-A. The medium value symbols are pirate's hooks, anchors, and a ship’s wheel. The game’s high-value symbols are the three Steampunk characters; The Mechanical Engineer, The Huntress, and The Patriarch Captain. The Captain is the most valuable with 5 on adjacent rows awarding 15x the bet size. The Crystal Wild substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and comes with a 2x win multiplier in the base game and the scatter symbol is a compass. The scatter triggers the bonus round and is also the highest paying symbol with 5 of a kind paying 200x the bet size.
The Mystery Wild Reels feature appears in the base game. The bonus game is a feature-laden free spins round with four options, each with its own volatility. Walking wilds also occur during the bonus game.
Mystery Wild Reels
This randomly activated feature only occurs in the base game. Upon activation, up to 4 reels are transformed into wild reels.
Free Spins with Stacked Symbols and Walking Wild Multipliers
Three or more scatters trigger the bonus round giving you a choice of four free spins rounds of varying volatility.
- The Mechanical Engineer: Awards 15 free spins with an x2 walking wild. Low variance.
- The Huntress: Awards 10 free spins with an x3 walking wild. Medium variance.
- The Patriarch Captain: Awards 6 free spins with an x5 walking wild. High variance.
- Mystery Option: Randomly awards 6, 10 or 15 free spins, and either an x2, x3, or x5 walking wild symbol. Random variance.
Three or more scatters triggers an additional random number of free spins.
During the bonus game, all wilds become ‘Walking Wilds’ meaning that wherever they land on the board they will ‘walk’ one reel to the left after every free spin. This continues until the wild reaches the leftmost reel after which it disappears from view.

Thunderkick may not be the biggest developer in the market with just 37 video slots produced to date but they are certainly one of the most innovative. Among others, the zany surrealism of Fruit Warp, the retro charm of Flame Busters and the quirky narrative of Wild Heist at Peacock Manor have all left us bewitched and enchanted. So often their games dazzle with creativity, playability, and their sublime charm.
I’m delighted to say that Riders of the Storm fits very well into the Thunderkick portfolio. The design, artwork, and animations are all spot on. The game is engaging, exciting, and packed with compelling features. Furthermore, it is a slot which packs a hell of a punch and offers huge potential with wins of up to 26,426x the stake possible.
I can’t recommend this little beauty highly enough. Take a ride for yourself, you never know, it might go down a storm!
