Turning Totems Pokies Game Gets a Revamp

Tia Winter | 5 December 2016

The later part of this year is seeing plenty of new pokies games from some of the world’s best developers. However, among these new releases is a game that may be familiar for many players – especially those who regularly play Thunderkick pokies.

Turning Totems was one of Thunderkick’s first pokies releases. Now, the developer behind this popular game has given it a complete makeover, including brand new bonus features to bring players even more winning opportunities from their mobile devices.

Turning Totems was officially released on November 30, bringing New Zealand players revamped game play and plenty of bonuses that the original game lacked. With a classic look and updated game play, Thunderkick’s faithful pokies patrons will be pleasantly surprised at the exciting new features this mobile pokie has in store for them.

Thunderkick’s New Turning Totem Pokies Optimised For Mobile

Thunderkick’s original Turning Totems pokies was created for online play only, but the newfound popularity of mobile gaming has prompted the developer to optimise their new slot for mobile devices. Thanks to this, Kiwi players can now play the new game from a variety of smartphones and tablets.

All the core elements of the original pokies are still there, too. The Native American child in traditional dress still stands beside the reels, magically spinning the totems around to create new winning combinations. The dusty desert landscape and chirps of crickets will also likely remind mobile players of this pokie’s predecessor.

However, along with these original elements are some dynamic new features to spice up the game play. The first pokie contained a blank symbol that had no win attached, and this has been removed in the new Turning Totems.

The blank symbol was added to the first version of the game because it didn’t contain paylines. Instead, wins were paid out according to how many symbols matched on the screen, with re-spins being awarded for any 5 of a kind.

Trigger Free Spins, Thunder Reels and Sleeping Wild Symbols

Instead of this outdated format, the new pokie offers 11 standard paylines and brand new symbols to make for a game that’s much easier to understand. Any 3 or more matching symbols will also pay out, decreasing the new game’s volatility and offering frequent wins.

Turning Totems now also offers engaging bonus features for mobile players. The new features include innovative Sleeping Wild symbols, Thunder Reels, and a free spins round with 5 free spins on offer.

With brand new game play and bonuses to enjoy, it’s now up to Kiwi mobile players to decide the final verdict for Thunderkick’s latest pokies release.
