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 monster, which we believe will be a hit, both amongst casino streamers and ordinary players alike
Falcon Huntress is a video slot with 5 reels and 9 fixed pay lines. The game features expanding win and a bonus game with free spins and retrigger. The theoretical return to player is 96.1%.
This is a slot with a max potential of 10,052 times the bet, which is huge, and to our understanding the highest paying slot ever released by Thunderkick to date. As we’re super curious to see where exactly the potential lies, we’re going to cut straight into 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.
Falcon Huntress Expanding Symbol feature
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.
There are 4 premium symbols in the game represented by The Falcon Huntress, a bow, an egg and a feather. The low value symbols are repesented by A, K, Q, J and 10.
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.
