Symbols and features
The symbols are all related to the protagonists journey along the highways and byways and include roadhouse food such as pancakes, eggs and bacon, a hotdog, a chilli pepper and a foaming beer. Other symbols include a speedometer, a number plate, the silhouetted hog on his bike, a spinning rear wheel and the grinning hog himself.
The Wild here is the ‘Wild Heart’ symbol, , which looks like a heart tattoo with both wings. It can appear on reels 2, 3 or 4 and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the Scatter, to complete a winning combination. There are dozens of potential winning combinations here so the Wild will find plenty of opportunities to score you a win.
The Scatter symbol is the engine block icon and it crops up very regularly, with any scatter win being multiplied by the total number of coins wagered. If you score another winning payline at the same time as a scatter win, you’ll also reap the rewards from that..
The hog is the jackpot symbol, and it pays out 10,000 coins at five across. At the max coin size of $2, the line jackpot is worth $20,000. Being able to win $20k on a $2 bet or $180k on an $18 bet is what makes Reel Thunder so popular many years after its initial debut. If you’re a low roller, play just a quarter, and you still have a chance to walk away with $2,500.
