The Native Americans certainly seem to love a casino, so it makes sense that sometimes we see them gracing our slots as well. In Thunderhawk, from Peter & Sons, you get to experience a colourful camp complete with wooden carvings and some cultural appropriation that might send the PC crowd over the edge. Start doing your rain dance now and pray that it showers you with gold coins throughout the base game and free spins display.
We have never knowingly complained about the design of any Peter & Sons slot, they’re high-class productions and Thunderhawk is no different. You are greeted by some smiling locals as part of the higher-paying symbols set and the lower ones are made up of regular playing cards.
Players outside the UK may also see a little golden slate to the right offering the chance to play the Golden Bet, and this increases your chances of landing scatter symbols. There may also be a direct Bonus Buy sign just below that.
Despite the game's fantastic visual setup, the audio element is downright annoying and will have you toggling the sounds off in no time. It's not that it's bad but it's just on a very short loop and drives you crazy in seconds.
The Thunderhawk prizes are there to be had at all times whether that is during the base game, Free Spins Bonus or Super Free Spins Bonus. This keeps you firmly fixated on the golden birds as you hope to see the 10,000x payout come your way.
Trying to trigger the super free spins 7 times could be a superhuman task and it might even take a bit more than some spiritual guidance to get you there. If you have the option to go straight there then you might want to consider the 150x price tag for doing so.
10,000x is not to be sniffed at but it does come at the cost of a very high volatility that will chip away at your balance until bigger prizes land in your lap. The RTP is perfectly aligned at 96%.
You can't complain about Thunderhawk as it's a decent-looking slot with a couple of nice features and some potentially big wins. However, we weren't blown away as everything here has been done before many times. It's not an innovative breakthrough in slot creation but it is a good effort that is certainly worth a few spins.
