Riders of the Storm has all the thematic trappings of a typical steam punk slot, but ironically without much steam to show for it. You take to these reels in a flying ship and your fellow crew coming along for the ride all have the goggles, the gloves and the hats that I would normally associate with the steam punk genre.
Wild – The Wild is the “Blue Gem” symbol, which will substitute for all paying symbols. In the base game the multiplier comes with x2 multiplier and in the Free Spins it can come with a x2, x3 or a x5 multiplier.
Scatter – The “Compass” symbol is the Bonus symbol. 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature.
Mystery Wild Reels – This is a random feature that can trigger at any point during the base game. When it does, up to 4 reels will be turned fully wild.
Bonus/Free Spins – If you trigger the Bonus you will be given a number of Free Spins, but before they begin a few things need to be determined: The symbol that will appear stacked, the number of spins that you are given and the size of the multiplier. One of the 3 high paying symbols or the Wild symbol will be chosen at random to appear in Free Spins fully stacked. You will be given a random number of Free Spins, either 6, 10 or 15. You will also be awarded a multiplier, either x2, x3 or x5 the bet for all winning combinations. The feature can also be retriggered. If you land 3 or more Scatters during your Free Spins then between 3 and 13 additional spins will be awarded.
Walking Wild – Any Wild that lands during you Free Spins will remain on the reels, moving one space to the left with each subsequent spin before falling off the left-hand side of the reels.
