Turning Totems is a really cool and rather unconventional online slot game by software developer Thunderkick. The name says it all; you will be looking at a bunch of turning totem poles throughout your gaming experience. Let’s start by first acknowledging the gorgeous visuals and absolutely outstanding 3D graphics. The design is bright and colorful and very charming, and by charming we are in particular referring to the Native American standing beside the reels. Clearly the game is set in the desert, and there’s a fair share of rocks and cacti to make that point. Keep your sound on to enjoy the really chill and pleasant soundtrack for a complete experience.
The layout in this game, though it might take a second to distinguish, is really no different from the majority of online slot games out there. It features a grid (sort of) of 5 reels and 3 rows, and it comes with a not so common number of paylines – 11. The paylines are also fixed, so there is no possibility to regulate them, but stakes are typical for Thunderstruck and fall within a very agreeable range. The minimum bet will only cost you 10p per single spin and the maximum bet will set you back a total of £100 per spin.
Look out for the eagle symbol with its wings over its eyes, as this is the Sleeping Wild. As long as it looks as we described it acts no differently from all the other symbols; it does, however, offer higher payouts than any of them.
But it really holds value when it is turned into a real Wild by the Thunder Reel, and once that happens you will find that the Wild can substitute for all other symbols. That is except for the symbol that transformed it from its sleeping state – the Thunder Snake. Thus, the Wild can help complete winning combos.
The Bonus Game consists of freespins and is the most important special feature in this game. To trigger it you will need to have at least 3 Thunder Reels active at the same time, and this will award you a total of 5 freespins.
Throughout this feature, the Thunder Reels will remain so. Unfortunately, however, you will not be able to retrigger this feature.
Turning Totems is a fun medium to high variance offering with a somewhat unusual yet simple setup. Besides that, it boasts great visuals and makes for a sleek, wholesome, and entertaining gaming experience.
