Game Review of the Week: Thunder Shields

Thunder Shields slot review

Channel your inner Viking strength with this Norse god-inspired slot game from iSoftBet. Thunder Shields is an exciting adventure with the potential for scoring you huge wins, and there are plenty of bonus features to add some plot twists to your saga along the way…

In honour of our Game of the Week, we’ll be taking a closer look at this popular slot with a full review of Thunder Shields.

How to Play Thunder Shields

Our Viking adventure begins with just one decision from you as a player: how much do you want to bet for every spin of the reels? iSoftBet are known for their accessible and intuitive game designs, which means that players with all levels of interest can get in on the action.

You can bet a minimum of 40 pence and a max of £40 per spin, and with a max jackpot of over 4,000 times your stake, there’s plenty of excitement to be had, whatever your budget.

After choosing your bet size, all that’s left to do is spin the reels (Thunder Shields has the classic five-reel setup), which you can do manually or by using the Autospin function, a handy feature which lets you set your own limits so you can stay on top of your spending.

Bonus Features

Apart from delivering their usual original Viking theme and characters, high quality visuals, a sweeping soundtrack and intuitive gameplay, iSoftBet have also been generous with their features in this game, and this game is no different.

Standout Thunder Shields features include:

  • Thor’s Hammer Wild – the Wild is the Hammer symbol in this game, which is a handy feature as it replaces other symbols to score you more winning combinations, and also triggers the Colossal Respins function.
  • Colossal Respins – reels 1 and 2 are filled with matching symbols, and you can enjoy Free Spins in which Wilds begin to expand, giving you even more shots at winning.
  • Cash Shields – offering scores of anywhere from 1x to 250x your stake, Cash Shields are also valuable because they trigger the Hold & Win feature.
  • Hold & Win – this feature automatically gives you 3 Free Spins on the reels.
  • Double-up Multiplier – get a fourth Free Spin on the reels and double up your winnings with this automatic Multiplier.
  • Thunderstorm Prizes – almost certainly the most exciting feature of the game, this is triggered during the Hold & Win function and gives you instant prizes:
    • Minor – instantly get 10x your wager.
    • Major – score an impressive 100x your wager.
    • Mega – get a whopping 1,000x your wager.

As you can see, the game is packed with features that not only make it more fun, but that significantly boost your winnings, helping you to go home happy.
