Before we embark on a mission to save the world from the evil rift, let’s quickly get through the basics. First up, The Rift has a beautifully designed 5 reel setup with an inbuilt 17 paylines. Playable from a mere 10p to a staggering £100 this game will also suit both casual players and more serious players with the wide wager range that it offers.

The gameplay of this game is as mysterious as the theme is. The symbols are mainly made of magical artefacts and the whole theme will seem to be centered around darkness and evil power. Relative to other mobile slot games, the symbols that appear on the reels are smaller; we think it’s part of the theme to portray that everything is being sucked into this evil hole.

Another convenient feature that this game offers is the auto-play feature in this game. All you have to do is choose the number of automatic spins you want to sit through and the wager for each spin. We find that this feature comes in extremely handy when you are multi-tasking or just watching something while having some slot fun.


Just like the Rift that sucks everything around it, the center of attraction in this game is the Rift scatter. When you are lucky enough to get 2 of these scatter symbols, you will trigger the Rift spin, whereas if you are rewarded with 3 of these Rift scatter symbols, you will trigger the Free Spins bonus round.

Once you have triggered the Rift spin by getting 2 Rift scatter symbols, you will receive one free spin. The good thing is that your chances of winning are raised in this mode as Wild symbols will randomly populate your reels.

With the free spins bonus round with 3 Rift scatter symbols you will get a minimum of 10 free spins all the way to a respectable 20 free spins. The exact number of free spins will depend on how many scatter symbols land on your reels. To make things more interesting, Thunderkick has included the Sticky Wild features into the free spins. Whenever they do not form winning paylines, they will remain on your reels to be used on your consequent spin. When you do win with stacks of sticky wilds, we can assure you that you are up for a MASSIVE payout.


The Rift by Thunderkick is a focused and a thrilling slot. The creative theme and stunningly designed graphics will grab your attention right away. Add the suspense filled soundtrack into the equation and chances are you will never get bored with this game. More often than not, you will come across new features and crisp animations, a great testament that Thunderkick put a lot of thought into this game during the design period.

The Rift is smooth across all devices on various platforms, and from the vigorous tests that we put it through, it passed with flying colours. The Rift also has an edge over other mobile slot games when it comes to loading times; you barely wait for longer than 3 seconds for the game to load.

Unique Features

Set in the back alley of a town and propped with symbols that enter the magical rift as you spin, the theme of this game is something to die for. The mini-games and all the bonuses fit the theme so well that it actually makes you feel like you are doing your part to save the world. On top of that, the bonuses are triggered pretty often that it always keeps you adrenaline pumping. Overall, The Rift is a solid performer in all aspects of a slot game.


After twenty minutes of playing Rift, I think I’ve figured out the secret. The tip to maximizing your ROI is by upping the ante. The base game has low potential for money-making and there isn’t a bonus game to recoup any losses.

However, few wins during the free spin round and you’re covered. Another strategy is to go in expecting a light and easy casino game and you’d have a fun night too.
