Divine Lotus – Thunderkick – Slot review and play for free
Divine Lotus from Thunderkick is an Asian-themed slot with 4096 pay ways and a max payout of 8700x.
The game, as we expect from Thunderkick is extremely well crafted and the graphics and sounds are more than decoration – they really complement the game.
They’ve managed to avoid the curse of many Asian-themed games by including a Shamisen in the music soundtrack to make it a lot less soporific than most.
Beautifully drawn too – the baby dragons make Spike from My Little Pony look like a hardened headcase.
The Mystery Lotus symbol is a mystery symbol that transforms into another symbol when it lands.
Multiple lotus flowers will transform into the same symbol. The good news is it won’t turn into a low paying symbol.
The one frustration with the game comes as a result of this. because the transforming symbols can only turn into high paying symbols it can be frustrating waiting for the transformation when you have one of the early reels only showing low payers.
A minor quibble but it could have been good to skip the transformations in those cases..
The Bonus Game
3 or more reels with scatters will trigger the bonus game which awards free spins with an additional modifier.
The anticipation spin for the bonus game trigger is one of the best I’ve seen, I have a thing about anticipation spins as regular readers will know…
You’ll begin with 2 free spins in addition to the number you of Lotus Symbols which triggered the game,
Each additional scatter symbol landing on the reels during the free spins will add additional free spins to your total.
Divine Lotus Symbol meter
Divine Lotuses are collected to fill the Symbol meters in the bonus game.
When enough Divine Lotuses are collected to fill a symbol meter, the indicated symbol
transforms into a Mystery Lotus symbol for the remainder of the bonus game and the Mystery Lotus
can no longer transform into that symbol.
Extra Free Spins in Bonus Game
Each reel containing a Divine Lotus will award 1 extra Free Spin and every time a Symbol meter is
filled 1 extra Free Spin is also awarded.
You are going to land a fair few additional spins for sure, you’d have to be incredibly unlucky not to.
When you’ve collected a few more transforming symbols and they land alongside a few Dragons things can get properly exciting.
Divine Lotus – Conclusion
It’s a great addition to the Thunderkick portfolio.
At once exciting and yet peaceful.
The theme is perfect for this mechanic and it’s much less in-your-face than say Red Tiger’s Dragon’s Luck which has a similar style.
I’ll be playing a lot of this.
Give it a go yourself – you can play it for free at the top of this review.
