Turning Totems slot review
Thunderkick always put a lot of detail into their slots for an engaging and eye-catching result. But when Turning Totems was originally released, its simplicity and lack of features didn’t quite hit the mark. In 2016, Thunderkick took a punt on themselves and re-released the slot with a whole new host of features… and it was welcomed by players with open arms.
Read our review to learn more about the improvements made and why it’s worth giving this quirky slot a second chance.

Turning Totems bonus features
It’s the bonus features of the re-release that make it infinitely better than the original. The Thunder Snakes add to the excitement, while the free spins round gives you extra chances to win. We also love the Win Two Ways feature, since those 11 paylines make for a much more lucrative experience when they count each way.
The free spins round comes from the Thunder Snakes – these are snake symbols that can land on the reels and “wake up” sleeping falcon symbols to turn them wild and trigger a Thunder Reel. If you trigger three Thunder Reels, you’ll be awarded five free spins.
The more Thunder Reels you have active during free spins, the bigger chance you have of winning – and if you’re lucky, you can trigger up to five Thunder Reels.
Win Two Ways
11 paylines might not sound like a lot… but when you consider they pay both ways, it considerably increases the value. You’ll basically have double the chances of winning on any one spin.
The Thunder Snake we mentioned before is the wild, and can also trigger other symbols to transform into wilds for more chances to win.
Turning Totems jackpot
There isn’t a jackpot in this Thunderkick slot, however, you will have the chance to win up to 998x your bet with every spin.
RTP and volatility
A medium volatility slot with a return to player of 96.1%, Turning Totems offers a balance of low and high wins that can occur semi-frequently.
