A couple of days ago we announced the upcoming release of The Falcon Huntress by Thunderkick - we've now had a chance to look closer at this high potential beast
Falcon Huntress is a Thunderkick slot utilising 5 reels and 9 fixed paylines. The game features expanding win and a bonus game with free spins and retrigger. The theoretical return to player is 96.1%. Falcon Huntress has a max potential of 10,052 times your stake which, to our understanding, is the highest paying slot ever released by Thunderkick to date. As we're super curious to see what it's all about, we're going to jump straight onto the features.
In our first report, we misinformed our readers and claimed that it was possible to trigger up to 20 free spins. It is only possible to trigger a maximum of 10 free spins which is done by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols. The Scatter and Wild both share the same symbol - the owl. It is possible to re-trigger with 10 extra free spins in the bonus by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols.
In the bonus game, every win expands much in the same way you've probably seen in games such as Book of Ra (Novomatic), Book of Dead (Play'n GO) and Magic Mirror (Merkur) and this is where all the potential is.
The expanding feature does not only occur in the bonus, but in the main game as well. In the main game however it happens randomly and can trigger at any spin. The wild symbol will never expand.
The Falcon Huntress is pretty much Thunderkick's take on Book of Ra and Magic Mirror, but with the difference that it's possible to trigger expanding symbols in the main game. This makes this game a bit more interesting as it adds some value to the game overall instead of putting all the focus on the bonus.
This means however that some of the RTP must be allocated to the main game, which in turn means the RTP must be adjusted for this in the bonus. In other words, mega wins will be fewer in the bonus but when the game hits it can hit big.
We don't expect to see many max wins on this as it is super rare on any high potential game, but it should be expected to see wins around 2000-5000x in time. Either way, it's going to be great fun watching the casino streamers chase the big wins on this slot and we firmly believe that The Falcon Huntress will be as popular as Thunderkick's Pink Elephant, if not more.
