Follow the dashing druid into Ravenmire for a mysterious reel adventure on the slot from Thunderkick. On Raven’s Eye, she will call upon the powers of nature to summon mystery symbols in the base game and transform low-value symbols into premium symbols in the free spins that can lead to wins of up to 1,761 times your bet.
Raven’s Eye is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 30 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Your foray into the mysterious forest on desktop or mobile starts at just 0.10 credits and can go up to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility (58/100) with an Thunderkick usual RTP of 96.10%.
The enchanted forest and the druid’s lodge are in the background of a game window held by stone columns. The scenery will change to a full moon night in the bonus game. A suspenseful soundtrack with frequent cries of the raven make for an intense gaming experience.
Open the game to find the card royals from 10 through to A at the low end of the pay table, awarding wins from 1x to 1.2x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by symbols with the four forces of nature – air, water, earth and fire – paying 2x to 4x your stake when five land on a line. The female druid is the most valuable symbol with 12.5x your bet for a 5OAK.
The wild symbol is an intricate tile with a green background, crafted from a rock and marked with “W”, substituting for all regular pay symbols and awarding the same wins as the druid. Raven orbs are the mystery and bonus symbol on the game, appearing super stacked at all times in the base game and free spins.
The raven orbs are the key to all features on this slot. In the base game, they act as Mystery Symbols, revealing a common pay symbol including the wild once the reels stop. Land raven orbs on three or more reels and you will trigger the Raven’s Eye Bonus Game.
A number of free spins equal to the raven orbs in view will be awarded with the minimum set at 9 free spins. For example, landing full stacks of four raven orbs on three reels will trigger 12 free spins. On top of acting as a mystery symbol, the raven orbs turn into collectible symbols for the duration of the feature.
The aim in the bonus game is to collect sufficient orbs on the meter to the left of the game window to turn the low-value symbols successively, starting with the 10, into mystery symbols. You will need to accumulate nine orbs for each symbol, which will transform then into mystery symbol for the duration of the feature. Plus, you will get +3 free spins every time you fill up the meter.
Thunderkick seems to be smitten with mystery symbols. We had them on Flame Busters and more recently on Dragon Horn, although both are high variance games. Raven’s Eye looks more like a feel good game for a pleasant gaming session while relaxing on the porch on a warm summer evening. The variance has been lowered significantly and with that also the overall win potential. It still comes in at 1,761x the stake in the bonus game, which any slotting enthusiast will be more than happy to score.
