Hammer Win Feature

To the right of the reel set is a list of 9 Multiplier Values equal to the number of Hammer symbols that can land. Hammer symbols appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 only.

When 4 or more Hammer symbols land at the same time, the Multiplier Value for the total number of Hammers in view is awarded, up to a maximum of 12 Hammers.

12 Bolts of Thunder Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 6, 9, and 12 Free Spins respectively.

During Free Spins, Hammer wins will upgrade each Multiplier Value on the hammer paytable after each payout, up to a maximum of 5 Muliplier Upgrades. The highest Multiplier Value is 30,000x for 12 Hammer symbols at the highest level. Each Hammer win awards an additional +3 Free Spins.

12 Bolts of Thunder: Our Verdict

After all that heat in Hot Potato! and Hellapenos, Thunderkick are taking us high in the sky for some fresh air and electrifying entertainment in their latest release, 12 Bolts of Thunder.

It’s rather strange to see a game represent a powerful God such as Thor, yet you never actually catch a glimpse of him anywhere. What also feels slightly out of place is the mix of classic fruit machine symbols. Who’d have thought Thor was a big fan of old fashioned fruit machines?

The hammer collection feature seen here looks like something from a Games Global slot, but like Push Gaming and 10 Swords, Thunderkick has put their own unique spin on it that can be witnessed in Free Spins.

Gameplay is nice and simple and it doesn’t take players long to figure out how the game works, but for players who thrive on quirky, complex features and big mechanics, you may find 12 Bolts of Thunder a little bit of a buzz kill.

The alterations made to the Hammer collection feature in Free Spins did come as a pleasant surprise. Each Hammer win during this time will cause the hammer paytable to upgrade, reaching up to a staggering 30,000x for 12 Hammers and triggering an additional +3 Free Spins.

Like most slots that have this kind of feature, it’s not always easy to see any action past 4 or 5 Hammer symbols. However, reaching Upgrade level 5 will see the minimum number of Hammers pay an impressive 50x your bet.

All in all, 12 Bolts of Thunder isn’t Thunderkick’s best work, but it did bring a spark of excitement in the Free Spins round!

12 Bolts of Thunder will be available at our favourite new slot sites when it releases on 30/01/2024!
