Thunder From Down Under Slots

Thunder-From-Down-UnderThunder From Down Under sounds like it’s inspired by Australia, and in part that is true. The action inside revolves around a group of Australian male strippers, the kind of game that addresses the needs of the female audience, while the males get the same kind of action from Mystique Club, a similarly themed game but with women performing inside. The photos used inside are the real deal, so you get real men that look like they’re 100% muscle mass and 0% body fat.

The 25 paylines found in Thunder From Down Under get the usual 5 reels on which they are placed. It’s a feature rich environment, with the scatter symbols, multipliers, free games and wilds all contributing to making this game even more appealing to the players that enjoy the theme. Even the prize is good, awarding up to $80,000 to the player that gets the right combo formed.

Features of Thunder From Down Under

Luckily, the strippers aren’t the only point of attraction for the game. There are some of the usual features inside, meaning that you get a wild symbol, free spins, multipliers and a scatter symbol. Nothing to surprise you here, but I doubt it’s the kind of game that you play for the features anyway.

The leader of the band, Donovan, takes the role of the wild, though he looks the least attractive of all in his picture, appearing like he’s having a seizure more than anything else. Though this wild is going to award the game’s best prize, the 4,000 coins jackpot, it doesn’t really stand out while it’s doing its real job, as a wild. It will substitute for other symbols, sure, but it doesn’t do anything about the scatter and it doesn’t bring along multipliers or bonus features of its own.

The troop’s logo, with the name having flames in the background, gets to appear in any position and still award prizes and free spins, even if it’s not on an active payline. You can get scatter symbols like this one anywhere on the five reels, and as long as you have at least two you will get a prize, while three or more will also get you free spins. These prizes go from 2x to 100x the wager, for two to five Logos.


Free Games Feature

The presence of at least three scattered Logos on the reels, during the same round, will signal the start of the free games feature, where 20 spins are won and all of them have 2x multipliers. It’s a feature that can get retriggered, given that the same number of scatters appears.

Betting options and jackpots

Though you can expect a good prize out of it, the game also asks for a serious investment each spin you want to play, at least if you’re targeting the biggest prize possible. The bets go from $0.25 to $500 when all the lines are selected, with the denominations being between $0.01 and $20.

The prize is $80,000, which would be the equivalent of 4,000 coins at top denomination.

Design and symbols

They’ve went with a lot of dark colors, neon lights and real photos of half-naked men, good choices since they were trying to send across the message that this is about male strippers and about having fun and letting loose. Real photos of these men were used, not just pictures, with letters being made out of neon lights.

Symbols: Donovan (wild, 4,000 coins), Logo (scatter, 100x the wager), Stripper in Fighting Stance (1,000 coins), Stripper lying on his back (500 coins), Stripper with cowboy hat (250 coins), Stripper with white shirt (250 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins), Queen (125 coins), Jack (125 coins), 10 or 9 (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

Though mixing business and pleasure can be a good thing, I imagine most ladies playing this game will want to blow off some steam or will simply be curious about it. It can still be a profitable slot machine, but it can be fun as well, given the right audience.

Thunder From Down Under can be found at any Cryptologic casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
