While there isn’t a progressive jackpot linked to Totem Lightning, there is an RTP of 95.53%, so players can expect a fairly regular payout on this medium to high volatility slot. We were disappointed to see the lack of Free Spins and Scatters, but there are other features that make this game worthwhile – including a chance of a 1,000x payout!

Special Features and Bonuses:

While Free Spins and a Scatter are out of the question here, there’s a fun feature or two that help the big wins add up:

  • Lightning Feature: this feature is randomly triggered and strikes away the lowest valued symbols on the board for a chance to win big!
  • Symbol Strike Bar: after each win, the winning symbol is removed from the board and will be highlighted on the strike bar. With each subsequent win, another symbol can be removed until only the high-paying animal symbols are left.
  • Totem Multiplier: land 3 or more Golden Feather Bonus Symbols to grab a spot on the Totem pole – work your way up to a 800x or 1000x multiplier!

Graphics and Sounds:

The cascading effect of this slot game goes well with the Native American and Totem pole theme, as does the traditional flute music in the background. The symbols are clean and appealing but have a true flair of Native American style. When the winning spins keep piling on  and you’re ever closer to reaching a big payout, an exciting chanting builds in the background.

While this slot might be lacking in Wilds and Free Spins (okay, and a Bonus Game) there are plenty of other reasons to check out Totem Lightning. The features that they do have – the Lightning Strike and Totem Multiplier – are unusual and place a nice twist on the game. Plus, there is the ever-looming chance to build your way up to a rather big multiplier – even a small wager is worth a good payout with a 800x or 1000x multiplier!
