Thunder Clash: Hold & Win Slot Game
Feel the Might of Thunder Clash: Hold & Win
Journey back to the Viking age in the 10th and 11th centuries, when old Norse Gods ruled over their people, and the Vikings were revered as raiders, pirates, and expert explorers. Set against the background of a tranquil lake lapping up on rocky mountain shores, Thunder Clash: Hold & Win by Betsoft is a marvelous tribute to Viking culture, featuring plenty of iconic symbols from that time, including Heimdall’s Gjallarhorn (a sounding horn), as well as Viking longboats lazily sailing along in the back. As Thor’s mighty thunder clashes across the skies, the question remains: will you stay to help build the Viking empire, or will you join the ships bound for unknown lands? Either way, your loyalty and bravery will not go unrewarded.
How to Play Thunder Clash: Hold & Win
Played on a 5 reel, 243 ways to win format, Thunder Clash offers a range of bet sizes to their players, starting from a minimum of $0.25 to a maximum of $80. Unlike many other games, winning a cash reward on Thunder Clash only requires at least 2 of the same icons across 2 or more reels, beginning from left to right. The symbols displayed in the game can be divided into two groups, namely the better-paying icons depicting Viking culture such as the Gjallarhorn (Heimdall’s horn) and a winged warrior helmet, as well as the lower value icons, which are the card symbols illustrated as bejewelled stones. Unsurprisingly, the game’s most well-paying icon is the Mjolnir, also known as Thor’s hammer, which can pay out a whopping $96 on the highest wager, when hitting a 5-of-a-kind combo. For more information regarding the game, players can look to the ‘i’ icon at the bottom bar of the playing field.
Special Features in Thunder Clash: Hold & Winby Betsoft
Perhaps one of the most common special features in the game, the wild icon is a purple tile streaked with lightning. This icon can substitute for all other regular symbols to form more combinations and will appear on all reels except for the first. These wilds are not to be confused with the nudging multiplier wild reel, which only appears on the third reel and is signified by an illustration of Thor himself. Every time a partial stack of this wild reel lands in the game, it will nudge up or down to fill the whole reel. The nudging multiplier wild reel will also gift multipliers to any wins that pass through it, up to x10. If there are no wins connected with the wild reel, a respin is awarded to the players, giving them a second chance to hit a payout.
There’s also a mystery symbol, represented by a tile with a glowing green symbol in the middle. This symbol may appear in stacks across all reels or on its own. Once the spin is complete, the mystery tiles will all simultaneously change into a single random regular icon in the game, potentially awarding players with more prizes.
Perhaps the best bonus feature of all is the Hold & Win bonus, which is activated when 6 or more bonus icons (represented by a shimmery yellow background and a numerical value in the middle, or any of the Mini, Minor and Major symbols) land in a single round. During the bonus round, 3 respins are awarded to players, during which, if any additional bonus symbols land on the reels, the spins will be reset to 3. Once 3 consecutive spins go by without any new bonus symbols landing, the bonus round ends, and all the rewards will be added up and awarded to the player.
