Casumo Casino has just added a brand new Turning Totems Slot from Thunderkick to their casino, this is well ahead of the official release of the 30th of November 2016, so if you want to check out this early Casumo casino looks to be the place to do so.
The latest offering from Thunderkick is a brightly colourful and cartoon themed slot, set in the desert with the main slot machine reels being replaced with turning wooden carved totems, as with most Thunderkick slots graphically this game looks amazing, with slick reel animations and some clever zooms when the bonus round is close to triggering.
Turning Totems – Base Gameplay
Turning Totems uses a 5×3 reel set and come with 11 active paylines which pay in both directions, during base game play there are stacked coloured totems along with lots of sleeping wilds (plain brown wood totems).
The main special feature of this slot is the special Thunder Snake symbol which not only acts as a scatter symbol but also wakes up the sleeping wilds when it lands in view on the reels, when this special feature occurs a re-spin of the reels is granted which the Thunder reel is now activated (highlighted yellow reel) now containing lots of wilds symbols.
This process of activating reels will continue if more Thunder Snakes land on the other reels, and if you manage to land 3 or more then the main bonus round is triggered, where things can really get exciting.
For players familiar with the mechanics of the Starburst slot will find this feature very familiar, the main difference here is that the sleeping wilds can be triggered on all of the reels and the game has a proper free spin bonus round to look forward to.
Turning Totems Slot – Free Spins Round
The main bonus round of Turning Totems is triggered when 3 or more of the Thunder Reels become active, which can be easily seen as they are highlighted in yellow at the top of the totem when activated, once triggered the bonus round then grants you with 5 free spins.
During the bonus round all of the initial Thunder Reels remain active for the duration of the bonus, landing any further Thunder Snakes on the remaining reels will then activate them also, meaning it’s quite possible to have all 5 reels activated by the end of the bonus round.
With lot’s more wilds active on the reels it makes it much easier to score some big wins, and with the slot paying in both directions there are some decent wins for the 5 of kind matching symbols.
Turning Totems has a Theoretical RTP (Return To Player) of 96.1%.
Turning Totems is a graphically amazing release, Thunderkick rarely disappoint in terms of releasing unique and interesting slots and this holds true for Turning Totems, the gameplay is interesting, the mechanics and reel animations are a little different, the sound effects and music are very fitting and the overall feel of this slot is great.
Definitely worth checking out before it’s official release at other casinos (Nov 30th), and if you are a fan of starburst style games but wished it had a bonus round then this slot delivers on that front too!
