Thunderkick’s Flux is a slot game that transports its player out of the everyday and into a world of bright and beautiful colour and energy- a futuristic space. This is a game that re-writes the rule book of slots, and instead takes you into a space world of glowing jewels, showers of stars and a big dose of feel good factor.
Look and feel
As you’d expect from a Thunderkick game, this is a slot that would easily win a beauty competition. This one is psychedelic man, you might want to play the Jimi Hendrix slot machine first and then head here for dessert. Here we are, with the frame invisible in a screen clear of any fuss or obstacles, except for a rather dreamy star-laden, blue night sky and icons of the game. There is something supremely relaxing and futuristic about the look and feel of this game which marks it apart from “the crazy” of many other slots.
The icons are all theoretically an unexciting set of coloured shapes but the graphics are so good, that even these look more like temping jewels than the simple shapes they really are. When you fire this up after a more traditionally designed game like the Redroo slot machine, it knocks you back for a second. In a good way!
This is a game with a high-energy soundtrack of gently rising electronic music, which both conjures up the right amount of tension and also has a seriously soothing quality.
Flux is a game that has already foxed you into taking its player into a parallel universe, and now it’s got a game to offer too, including an exciting Free Spins feature to make sure that there’s substance to this looker of a slot. This game is brighter than the Neon Jungle slot, and that’s not an easy thing to pull off!
Flux is a 3 row, 5 reel and 15 payline slot with a shot of difference!
The high value icons are eight bright 3D jewelled shapes which gently rotate and move. The big boy is a bright yellow star, and other geometric shapes are in a fetching selection of different shades of pink, orange, purple, blue and green.
The slot’s Wild is an easy to see golden letter “W” and this substitutes for all icons except for the Bonus one. So don’t forget to keep your peepers open for the all-important Bonus icon, an unsurprising letter “B” in a silver frame.
Free spinning fun!
If you love the Free Spins features as much as me, then you’ll be happy to hear that you just need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the Bonus icons across the reels to trigger this mode. Now the real fun begins with three different options of game up for grabs.
Win Both Ways means that if you landed 3, 4, or 5 of the Bonus icons, you earn a very tasty 16, 32 or 48 free spins respectively.
If you go for the 3 Extra Rows game and you landed 3, 4 or 5 Bonus icons then you’re looking at a tempting 12, 24 or 36 free spins respectively.
And finally if you go for the Win Both Way with 3 Extra Rows, then you’ve got a nifty set of spins with 3 Bonus icons – earning you a respectable 8 free spins, 4 icons awarding 16 free spins and 5 icons bringing home the bacon with a very nice 24 free spins.
What’s more, if Lady Luck likes the cut of your jib and you land another Bonus icon during the feature then guess what? There’s another free spin in it for you! Flux offers more free spins than you can shake a stick at and what’s more, hanging out in Flux is a pretty nice way to watch the universe go by!
With its autoplay function, Flux is just the kind of slot that could provide some nice chilled pre-set spinning; all you have to do is set those reels spinning and watch the dosh roll in while you go into a relaxed astral trance!
If you’re looking for a heady dose of hedonistic astral fun then booking a seat in front of Flux looks like good sense to me. Not only is this an easy game to play, but Thunderkick have once again managed to create a totally different kind of place to play. With that galaxy of free spins this really is inter-galactic fun!
