Big Thunder from Ainsworth takes you right into the jungle where you can try your luck to find some treasure. The game also features the mighty gorilla who can help you find even more treasure in the game. The sounds of the game are pretty basic and there is no background music, just sounds when you spin the reels and trigger features. These effects are mostly standard slot sounds and not very creative. The symbols however, are nicely drawn. The special features are wild substitutions with the gorilla, free spins and the King Strike Feature.
The game has a high volatility, which means that you will need a higher budget to play the game, as you will probably have many rounds without wins, but instead get the chance to win a larger amount in a single spin. The King Strike feature can yield good prizes, but it's hard to trigger it. The theoretical return to player is 94.38%, which is similar to other slots from Ainsworth, but lower than many other online slots. You can also play Big Thunder mobile, the game has been developed to be compatible with many Android or iOS devices.
