Thunderkick looks into the future in Flux, a superbly designed 5 reel, 15 payline video slot. Highlights here include expanding wilds and 3 free spins round which offer win both ways payouts, added rows or both. Play on all devices from between 10p and £100 per spin.
Thunderkick is among the market leaders when it comes to the sound and visuals of its games and Flux is another impressive addition. The design is simple but very stylishly done – you’ll see 8 different rotating gemstone symbols spinning around the reels. The best of them is the yellow star which will get you an award of 24 times your stake if you land a 5-symbol combination.
Maintaining the simple theme is the W which is the wild – it can fill whole reels when it hits. As usual, it replaces apart from the Bonus symbol, which in this case is the letter B. Land 3 or more Bonus symbols on the same spin to trigger the feature round. You’ll then be offered the pick of 3 Free Spins features.
Trigger with 3 Bonus symbols and the choices are:
- 16 free spins with win both ways payouts
- 12 free spins on an expanded 7 row machine
- 8 free spins with win both ways payouts on the 7-row machine
Trigger with 4 Bonus symbols and the choices are:
- 32 free spins with win both ways payouts
- 24 free spins on an expanded 7 row machine
- 16 free spins with win both ways payouts on the 7-row machine
Trigger with 5 Bonus symbols and the choices are:
- 48 free spins with win both ways payouts
- 36 free spins on an expanded 7 row machine
- 24 free spins with win both ways payouts on the 7-row machine
We’d go for the win both ways and expanded game engine as this offers the best possible wins. There are fewer free spins on offer but a good combination can deliver a big win. In terms of variance, Flux is deceiving as it’s in the middle – it does also offer maximum wins of 2,562 times your total bet on each spin/free spin!
Thunderkick has kept things simple in Flux and it works rather nicely. It’s as easy on the eye and ear as you’d hope and the feature round offers some potential. This won’t be a video slot for players who want plenty of variety in their features. It delivers a steady stream of well designed, simple spins though and is worth considering if you fancy some basic but good-looking action. I also suggest you take a look at some of their other titles with Not Enough Kittens and Pink Elephants good choices.
