Sticky Respin Feature

Each time 1 or more Golden Scatter symbol lands, it will transform into a random Sticky symbol from the paytable (excluding Scatter and Wild symbols), triggering the Sticky Respin Feature.

During the Sticky Respin feature, the Sticky symbol will lock into position and any identical symbols on the reels (including Wilds) will also lock into their positions, and a Respin will begin.

If another Golden Scatter were to land during this time, a new Sticky symbol will be chosen at random and all matching symbols will also lock into their positions.

If there is more than 1 active Sticky symbol in play at any one time, the highest-paying sticky symbol will be selected, and all remaining sticky symbols will be upgraded to that symbol (excluding Wilds).

The Sticky Respin feature will continue until no more symbols become Sticky, or if all possible positions on the reels are locked. After this, all wins are paid to your total balance.

Dionysus Golden Feast Free Spins

Filling the Bonus Meter with 3 Gold or Silver Scatters during the base game, triggers the Free Spins round, awarding either 8 or 4 Free Spins respectively.

At the start of each Free Spin, 1 Gold Scatter symbol will be randomly placed on the reel set, triggering the Sticky Respin feature.

Dionysus Golden Feast: Our Verdict

After a few releases that felt very un-Thunderkick, Dionysus Golden Feast brings it right back with gameplay that the provider does brilliantly.

First and foremost, we should mention the visual delight that is Dionysus. It has an almost ethereal feel to it, which is to be expected when you’re dealing with a slot centred around the godly Ancient Greece. It truly is visual wonder, but does it stack up where it matters?

The gameplay toys with elements that Thunderkick has been known for before with multipliers that increase depending on how many Wild Symbols you have, sticky symbols and rather impressive payout values as well. It gives us that throwback feel to some of our favourite Thunderkick slots like Midas Golden Touch, Pyramyth, Phoenix Paradise and others alike. Your opinion of it will vary depending on whether or not you think Thunderkick are better when they branch out into uncharted territory, or if their bread and butter features are just too appealing to abandon.

We’re torn ourselves. Thunderkick are innovative and smart with plenty of games that deviates from the norm, yet we still find that our heart belongs to games like this.

Dionysus Golden Feast certainly isn’t a new experience, but its a solid one. 7,500x win potential makes it appealing on its own, and solid gameplay with reliable staple mechanics make it a prime choice for those looking for something with a hint of simplicity.

Overall, Dionysus Golden Feast certainly won’t top the list for any innovation awards, but its a respectable and well constructed Thunderkick classic with a lot of loveable traits.
