Thundercats – The Classic Cartoon Series Brought to Life as a Slot Machine by Blueprint Gaming!
LeoVegas Casino has added the brand new Thundercats slot from Blueprint Gaming to their casino, based on the classic 1985 cartoon tv series.
For players not old enough to remember this tv show it featured a group of catlike aliens Lion-O, Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, Snarf and Wily Cat who battled various aliens including the classic Mumm-Ra the ever living.
Needless to say, Blueprint gaming has managed to capture the true essence of this cartoon series in their slot and not only features the main characters on the reels but also some the most notable arch enemies in the bonus rounds too, all cleverly designed with a classic cartoon theme throughout.
The base game uses a 5×4 reel layout with 30 fixed paylines but this can extend during various bonus features to an 8-row tall slot which is why the slot has been designed almost like a full-screen cabinet you would find in a regular casino, this does hamper the viewable area in desktop play but should be perfect on mobile devices.
The Thundercats slot has many different bonus features on offer which include unique base game special features which vary based on the currently selected Thundercat (shown above the reels), along with 5 different free spins modes which can also be gambled once triggered to boost you to the more rewarding modes.
Lots of new and exciting free spins modes are on offer including the most rewarding Ultimate Thunder Spins where 3 of the reels are fully wild and 8 rows high for the entire bonus round!

The Thundercats slot is one of our favourite slots we have reviewed this year, not only has Blueprint Gaming done a fantastic job in designing the slot to incorporate the Thundercats theme amazingly in terms of both visuals and sound effects but they have also produced an online slot with some really innovative bonus rounds too with the Mumm-Ra Free Spins being our favourite just for the chance of the re-triggering ever living spins!
Even if you have no knowledge or interest in the 1985 cartoon series this is a slot to definitely check out, the base game is interesting with regular mini bonus features activating regularly, and the gamble up feature allows you to re-spin for a more rewarding free spins mode.
It’s fantastic to see that Blueprint Gaming has ventured away from the regular 20 payline slots, as although always packed with bonus features they had started to become a little tiresome and formulaic.
Thunder…Thunder… Thundercats Ho!!! Go play it!
