Thunderkick, BF Games and SYNOT Games: on the spin

Another week has flown by and an abundance of new slot releases have hit the CasinoBeats inbox. This week’s slot round-up includes a night at the Devil’s bar with Thunderkick, BF Games’ new mechanic and an Egyptian extravaganza from SYNOT Games

Hellapeños – Thunderkick 

Take a seat at Thunderkick’s bar in hell for a five-reel slot with a 3-3-5-5-5 row set-up, offering 100-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s wager. The slot has high volatility and an RTP of 96.18 per cent.

Mike Collins, Product Owner at Thunderkick, commented: “Get ready for hellish fun in Hellapeños, our latest release that takes players on a fiery adventure with spicy winning chances and red-hot mechanics that are sure to thrill.

“We’re excited to see the reception to this game’s unique reel format, alongside features such as expanding devils, wild multipliers and a fantastic bonus game that takes Hellapeños to a whole new level.”

Bonus spice meter scatters can drop into play on reels three, four and five, triggering the free spins feature if three or more appear on the same spin. 

Chilli pepper wilds are also available, substituting for all symbols other than the bonus meter scatter. These wilds will also present x2 multipliers that will be applied to any combination wins that they contribute to. 

Additionally, devil wilds are available on these reels, substituting for all symbols other than the scatter while expanding to cover full reels each time they drop into play. 

Throughout the game, a random wilds feature can occur, guaranteeing that at least one chilli pepper multiplier wild will appear on that spin, marking the cells they will land into with pentagrams. 

When the free spins game mode is activated, seven spins are awarded. When devil wilds appear on the third, fourth or fifth reel, they will activate the reel so that a devil wild is placed on it for every subsequent free spin. 

Devil wilds will also award three extra spins for the bonus game mode each time they initially appear on the reels. 

Megacity – BF Games 

BF Games introduced its new mechanic with a metropolis of a slot title, showcasing a 5×3 reel slot with 50-paylines and a maximum win of up to x2,000 the player’s wager. This tile has high volatility with an RTP of 96.12 per cent.

Piotr Saluda, Product Owner at BF Games, stated: “At BF Games, we strive to continually offer our players more, enhancing our creative slots and developing new ways to keep them engaged.

“Nothing showcases this commitment quite like Megacity, which really has it all, including a new and exciting mechanic. Just like the city can be an assault on the senses, Megacity’s vibrant graphics, fun mechanics, and multiple jackpot levels make this game one of our most thrilling yet.”

Zap! symbols can drop into play, awarding instant prizes when three or more appear on the same spin. Zap! payout prizes work as follows: 

  • Landing three on the same spin awards x1

In the free spins game mode, players are given three spins in which the aim is to land five Zap! symbols on the reels to upgrade the feature to its next level. 

At the next level, the board will increase to 5×4 size while players need to land 10 Zap! symbols to activate the next level, which has a 5×5 size board. 

At this level, players need 15 symbols to get to the next 5×6-sized level, and 20 symbols to get to the level after that with a board size of 5×7. 

25 and 30 symbols are needed to unlock the 5×8 and 5×9 levels respectively, before 35 symbols are required in the final level to unlock the grand Zap! prize of x2,000 the player’s bet on a 5×10 board. 

When players fail to land the number of Zap! symbols needed to reach the next level, they will return to the base game while gaining the prize value represented by the level they made it to.

Special Scarab beetles can drop into play, displaying monetary prizes between x0.25 and x5 the chosen bet, which will be awarded when five or more appear on the same spin. 

This will also cause the free spins feature to be activated, awarding five free spins. 

The accumulated value of the five or more scarabs that trigger the feature will create a set value for the free spins game mode, which can be collected by special golden scarabs.

These bonus scarabs can appear with multipliers between x2 and x10, which will be applied to the set value collected by the triggering scarabs. 

When six or more scarabs appear on the same free spin, the prizes will be collected and an extra three free spins will be awarded.
