About The Game
The Rift sounds like something that might be penned by the legendary Stephen King, but here it is a moody, 5 reel, 17 payline online casino slot developed by Thunderkick. Set in a dark, gloomy alleyway, The Rift itself is a point in space and time where neither and both exist, simultaneously, alongside an infinite number of the treasures and items that have fallen into it over the years.

There are no card symbols here in The Rift… or are there? Actually - no there aren’t, but there are a number of magical symbols including a Spellbook, an interdimensional Octopus, a number of Coins collected across space and time, a Vessel of some kind, and origin, and a Timepiece – which will probably struggle to function efficiently where time doesn’t exist.

There is also a Wild symbol – which will regularly become Sticky – and a Bonus Rift symbol, which will trigger Free Spins and a Rift Bonus feature. From just two Bonus Rift symbols on the reels, we gain access to the Free Spins – with up to 20 on offer during the game. During the Free Rift Spins, any Wild not appearing on a payline will immediately become Sticky, with up to 3 per Free Spin at any given time.

On top of this, there is the Rift Seal, which is partially filled every time we land a Bonus symbol. After every third symbol, 2 bonus Free Spins are awarded – and with the Sticky Wilds never far away, wins can quickly accumulate in the timeless void of The Rift.

Graphically, the game works extremely well. The black and white backdrop of the alleyway where The Rift exists (and doesn’t exist!) is accentuated by the vibrant, shimmering colours of the detailed symbols and bonuses. The audio is dramatic, mysterious, and pleasantly moody, and when the wins land it explodes into an energetic burst of mechanical and metallic chimes!

As with any game that has a lower number of symbols, the Autoplay function is sometimes useful to get the wins going, but once the Rift Seal starts to fill, the excitement certainly begins to build, and The Rift comes to life.

The Verdict
It’s strange to come across a game that has no physical setting, but Thunderkick have managed to create a distinct atmosphere, rather paradoxically, where none actually exists! Graphically, the game is excellent, with detailed symbols that are always alive with magic, while the audio is also of an extremely high quality – and distinct from other online slots in its level of mystery, and intrigue. Along with a variety of excellent bonus features, this makes for a near-flawless 9/10 review from Dream Jackpot.
